Our kids are getting fat. It's a fact. Hell, we as a society are getting fat! (But let's not worry about that, we need to save the CHILDREN! DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN! *sob*) Anyway, we also have a rather bad energy crisis coming on if we really are running out of oil in the next century. I think there's a solution to both problems here. Instead of "recess" and "lunch" put all the little schoolchild darlings on big treadwheels from 11:30 to 1:00 and use the wheels to generate electricity.

Since a subscription is likely required for this link, a summary: many US elementary schools are making kids walk or run round the running track during recess, instead of letting them play in an "unstructured" fashion. [DrCurry, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       Seems like the thing to do is to make school uniforms copper jackets for girls, zinc for boys, and have them run around each other during PhysEd.

       [jutta] - Sheer numbers, then, would indicate that it really is a fantastic idea. ;P
