What About Money Wasted on NEW Videogames?

So, about a week ago, my brother and I walked into a Toys R Us and were surprised to find they had one last Wii Fit in stock. Against my better judgment, I dropped $100 on the device and now the whole family is wigglin' and jigglin' the pounds away. Sort of.

Actually, I don't know how aerobic the games and workouts are, although a few of them certainly leave you winded. Probably the best feature of Wii Fit is its ability to graph and track your weight and Body Mass Index. Seeing just how much you've gained or lost from the day before is a surprisingly effective exercise motivator.

The trick in getting people to do things they don't want to do, as Tom Sawyer taught us a century ago, is to make them think they're having fun. Education, exercise, and housework come to mind. As does our old friend, the Perry Bible Fellowship. :)

Two centuries ago; I'm a 20th-Century kid so to me "a century ago" means the 1800s. D'oh!
