Fitness Age

This weekend I Wii'd (if I use it, it's a real word). I tried a little of each of the Wii Sports - tennis, golf, baseball, bowling, and boxing - and found that my athletic aptitude is spread across the board. I could be looking at a potential new sports career. I could be the kind of ringer that teams could bring in, for any sport (be it basketball or curling or disappearing dead Asian hookers), if they need a regular guy who is capable of losing in the Special Olympics.

Wii Sports has a feature that allows you to, once per day, perform three training tasks and then it rates your fitness age based on things such as your stamina, and agility. I started the weekend at age 70, which was a disappointment because I thought I had worked my way up to at least 65. The joke is that I'm not kidding about that. I tell people who want me to do physical activities to just pretend I'm 65 and then ask themselves if they would still want my help. I guess I have to up the estimate. Anyway, with hard work and more training, I managed to retest on Sunday and score - age 74. Maybe they're calculating that as a percentage of how healthy I should be.

If you think I put too much stock in what my new video game says, you obviously haven't been paying attention to the last year and a half of medical treatments I've endured. Given the quality of healthcare to which I've been exposed, I feel much more comfortable in being assessed by Dr. Nintendo. Plus which the Wii carried a small $200 price up-front and will not be billing me for the initial sale for the next two years.

For enduring all of these words, here is a repost of a hot Asian schoolgirl for you.

Bunny!

I think it might be Avitable.

Avitable - I just googled "hot Asian schoolgirl fap fap fap" and it brought up a lot of pictures of you.

dr.alistair - the Wii is good for people who have a big screen TV and don't like fresh air or sunshine. And the graphics are great compared to my copy of Ultima IV.

I think that is Avitable.

I agree with Dr.A on the Wii Sports.

Hot Asian schoolgirl feel on some hard times.

Captain Dumbass - it's my favorite fapping photo of him to date.

Ricardo - real exercise is for losers who can't afford a Wii and an obscenely huge TV. :p
