???& nbsp; Singles have a better sex life than married people, right?& nbsp; Wrong!& nbsp; A University of Chicago study shows that married couples are having more sex--30% more--and better sex, than singles. But movies, TV shows, and other reporting about marriage never feature that fact.& nbsp; ???& nbsp; Do we have less free time than we used to? Countless news stories and anecdotes from friends and family make the overwhelming case that we're running ourselves ragged.& nbsp; But when people actually keep track of their activities in a time diary, studies show that we have significantly more free time per day than in 1965.& nbsp; So why is everyone out of time? ???& nbsp; Surburban sprawl is ruining America. Huge subdivisions and massive highway construction is eating up our free space and affecting our quality of life.& nbsp; Isn't that what you always hear?& nbsp; So why do you never hear that 95% of America is undeveloped, or that so-called 'smart development' prices lower-income families out of property ownership? ???& nbsp; Also: & nbsp; Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?& nbsp; Do girls feel more pressure to have sex than boys? Are gas prices really through the roof?& nbsp; Is outsourcing bad for American workers? John Stossel takes on these and many more misconceptions, misunderstandings, and plain old stupidity in this collection that will offer much to love for old GIVE ME A BREAK fans, and show everyone why conventional wisdom--economic, political, or social--is wrong.
