Sophia: How's your weekend?
Michael: Nothing special. I spend hours at home watching TV. You know, I'm a couch potato and it's too late for me to change.
Sophia: You should do some outdoor activities! According to a news report I read on the China Post, the most TV adolescents watch, the more likely they are to develop attention and learning problems.
Michael: Let's see. I spent some 6 hours watching TV this weekend. I can make it 5 hours. No problem!
Sophia: Check this. Professionals suggest adolescents spend less than 3 hours per day watching TV to  reduce the likelihood of developing learning difficulties!
Michael: No wonder! I always feel sleepy when I study! I should give it a shot and turn off the tube.
