Default Average Time Kissing

Found this on the inside of the lid of a bottle of Snapple, so I doubt it immensely, but wondered if anyone has any cites:

"The average person spends two weeks of their lives kissing."

It's called honeymoon.

That what? 5000 4 minute snogs. One every three days for 40 years would make up that time - I reckon I made up that time with Gillian Gibson when I was 15

Only two weeks in your entire life? Either I'm way above average or I've actually been undead for the last few years.

Don't worry. I'm balancing it out by being on the other side of the Bell curve.

I take it that includes kissing with and without tongues.

I'm in the same boat myself.

Hey, you prove otherwise!

I've always wanted to know how much of one's life, (in weeks, months, years etc,) one spends having a poo. And does that only include the period actually pooing, or does it include the whole sitting down and wiping etc? And if you're the sort of person who, say, brings a cryptic crossword into the bathroom with them in order to have a more leisurely poo, then how does that factor in, exactly?

The only time I'm on the toilet long enough to warrant reading material, I'm usually holding my gut and wishing I would die. I don't think even sudoku could distract me.

I don't often finish them in the time. I have to go into the toilet with reading material, that's one of the reasons I hate public toilets.

How do they measure this stuff, anyway? There are so many things to consider. Do kisses from family members count? Are they considering people who never kiss? Are they considering the people that run kissing booths? Do they take all those factors and average them, or do they find a bunch of average joes and ask them?

I figured it out. I've been with DH for ten years. We spend about 2-3 minutes a day kissing, much more the first two years (about 30 minutes kissing, I reckon). If I've done the math right, we've already spent 18.6 days making out. And that doesn't even include sex kissing or our honeymoon.

ETA: The only time I read in the bathroom is when I'm sick or something. DH, on the other hand, keeps a stack of truck catalogs in there.

I assumed it was making out only- how do you quantify kisses on the cheek?
