Active video gaming is one thing, but one really needs to look into making sure that, wherever possible, those kids actually go out and do something. I for one, support our sedentary overlords, but even they must feel that something is amiss when not actually getting up and doing something else...

Personally, I can happily classify myself as "overbese" due to this terrible yet awesome pastime... I need to go get running again...
