Another page from the "Well no shit" files

On my way home, I usually listen to 99.1 FM (a local classical station). During the drive, I generally catch "the medical minute".

Generally they're pretty interesting, but today's was one of the dumbest things I've ever heard: Video games make you fat.

Really?

Sitting and not moving anything except your fingers isn't good exercise?

Who'd have figured?! I'm glad the CDC is here to tell us these things.

If it sounds too stupid to be true, listen to it yourself.

Videogames don't make you fat; Sitting on your ass makes you fat.

It's just part of a larger smear campaign against videogames.

Dorky as they look, those kids with the dance dance revolution mats are getting a workout, as are wii resort users.

I dare them to try the 5 minute jogging course on wii resort and then tell me it's making them fat.
