Finite Heartbeats Theory

This came up in conversation this morning and I was looking for an internet source to point somebody to. I couldn’t find one, so I guess I’ve never posted about it before. So here. Pay attention kids, this is important.

I believe that you’re born with an unknown, but predetermined and finite number of heartbeats. Once you’ve used them all up that’s it - your time has come and you die.

The result of this is that anything you do which increases your heart-rate (exercise, taking the stairs when there’s a perfectly good elevator right there, leaving the house, generally walking around, etc) is just using your heartbeats up faster and shortening your life.
