Depressing Fitness

My daughter is learning about CPR at school. That's Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation for the acronym-impaired.

A small study out of the University of Illinois recently reports that the Bee Gees' song, "Stayin' Alive" is not only an appropriate title, but provides the appropriate beat to keep someone's heart beating while doing CPR.

And here I always thought the Bee Gees were only good for demonstrating what dolphins would sound like if they sang.



Knowing that every time you exercise, it validates the existence of Richard Simmons.

The last 500 yards of your first wind.

It's almost impossible to keep your Twinkie intake level up while doing all those laps.

It requires getting up off the couch.

The dawning realization that maybe it was your personality, not your physique, scaring off the hotties.

You're still going to die.
