The internet if full of useful information. Like exactly how many licks it really takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. (The answer is 364 licks according to the web)
Another interesting piece of information comes from the website Cord Cutting, who spent time to determine how many hours of commercials we don’t have to sit through in a year by watching all our favorite television programs on Netflix.
The average commercial break is 15 minutes and 30 seconds an hour. Let’s just say you’re only watching one hour of television a day, that adds up to roughly 160 hours a year. Or another way to look at it, about 6 & 1/2 days a year!
Now that’s also just based off of watching just that one episode of The Bachelor or Survivor. Let’s say you’re watching 2-3 hours of TV per day, that adds up to more than 2 weeks of commercials!
Thank you Netflix. We’re happy to save that time in our lives.
