When researchers for the Americans' Use of Time Project asked 2,500 adults to rank common activities on a scale of one to 10. The results ranged from predictable to scary.
The top activity was (big surprise) having sex, with a 9.3. But a way-too-close second was playing sports, with a 9.2. And believe it or not, fishing was a close third, ranking 9.1 and beating out hugging and kissing, and playing with the kids.
