I found it really interesting that I happened to read the following two articles on the same day:

From Yahoo! News "West Virginia, which has one of the nation's worst obesity problems, is expanding a project that uses a video game to boost students' physical activity. All of the state's 157 middle schools are expecting to get the video game "Dance Dance Revolution," and officials hope to put it in all 753 public schools within three years..." Link

and

From OHGIZMO "You know that lifting a foot would be so much of an effort that you might pop a vein, or get another sport related injury. You can't have that, but how are you to play Dance Dance Revolution? Fear not, lazy friend. Tesco's got you covered, with these pair of £13.00 palmtop controllers for PS1 and PS2 versions of the popular game. Let your fingers do the dancing..." Link

To the students of West Virginia, I have the following to say:

"There's always a shortcut, boys and girls. You just have to know what to look for. "

and

"Don't let the man fool you into thinking fitness is fun. Down with the man!"

* Title has little to do with content.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
