so if you take a day off for each, and a test is an hour long or so, dont that mean you spent the rest of the day studying?

let me tell you why that's ********.
its true that you should sleep 8 hours a day
its true that you get sundays and holidays off
but you also have to factor in the fact that you can study, go to the movies, eat, and most of all sleep on the days you have off. if you want a slightly more accurate measurement, first subtract the whole days when you refuse to study, then subtract the eating, sleeping, gossip and sports for those days. this will give you 182 days when you can actually bother to accomplish anything, with 12 hours each for you to study. seems legit, because there are approximately 180 days of school per year, and school lasts for 7 and a half hours, leaving you with your much needed 4 and a half hours of studying a day.

Sundays happen throughout the year, including summer. So you ****** up when you counted whole weeks including the sunday when you already subtracted the sunday.

He ****** up with almost everything for that very reason. To do this correctly, you'd have to subtract the full days off first and then multiply the units defined by hours (like playing sports) by the remaining full days, subtracting the sum of that from the total. I'll try, though using days off relative to my school year, which is a college school year, and thus Christmas and summer break are longer:

104 days for weekends: 261

42 days off for for, winter, spring and summer breaks, not counting weekends, as those were already subtracted: 219

4 days off for less cool holidays: 215

USA today alluded to some research stating the average American gets six-and-a-half hours of sleep, which comes out to 58 total days out of our remaining 215 days, not 365, because I’m not a dumbass: 157

(Remember, from this point onward we’re using 215 as this basis for all other statistics, as we’ve established those are the full days we don’t already have off.)

A government sponsored website says we spend about one hour a day eating, so that rounds up to 9 days: 148

Let’s go with his hour a day for sports/exercise since I can’t find anything better, which comes out to another 9 days: 139

An hour for gossip? Let’s call it an hour for FaceBook. Another 9 days: 130

I found 2 hours for leisure, so 18 days: 112

I didn't take exam and sick days into account, which on average at my school probably would have brought the remaining full days down to 200 or so. At my college, the only time we all have exams the same days are for finals, which happens twice a year for the spring and fall semester. Those take up a full week of school each, though less if you have two or three on the same day. I figure at worst that would have brought the final number to about 100.

I really don't get the point of the post, considering many of the activities are necessities and it's not like you can study for classes you don't yet have over summer break.

I've seen this before.... and i can't stop wondering why you can't study on sundays?
is there some kind of almighty god stopping you from just grabbing your books and styding?

Everyone can stop taking the piss out on this guy, he didn't even make the content so arguing that his calculations are wrong is pointless

You can't just subtract sleeping time from days...
Each day has sleeping time; it is separate from all of the activities. We don't miss any days in the year because we sleep through them. That is, if we are only getting 8 hours of sleep.
