There’s been a lot of buzz lately about the guy who lost 9 pounds playing Wii. Quite interesting – and anyone who has played Wii Sports can attest to the fact that boxing is the most active sport out of the bundle (that is, if you actually dodge and punch instead of just flicking the remote and turning it from side to side). So a full on boxing game would be sure to burn the calories, right?
That’s why I got so excited when I saw what some guy at Microsoft did with his DDR pad and a punching bag.
Do that for 30 minutes a day, and that’s guaranteed to be a good workout. I have 2 DDR pads… I wonder how much a punching bag like that costs?
Another interesting thing that Jason pointed out to me the other day is this online app that calculates what your name means. The descriptions are extremely specific, which probably increases the odds that they don’t apply to most people. But for me, they were eerily accurate (right down to describing artistic / design talent that starts off latent). You might give it a try. I tried it for a few friends whose full names I knew, and for some it was accurate, others… not so much. But give it a try and let me know what it says for you.
