We understand that Wii Fit
has dubious health benefits at best (whatever CTA Digital
might say top the contrary), but apparently word hasn't reached the Navy's top brass. According to the Navy Times
, recruits need more work than ever before to get into fighting shape, "given that many young people prefer computers and video games" to sports and physical activity. The solution, says Navy Surgeon General Vice Adm. Adam Robinson, is to use break in would-be sailers slowly, introducing "the equivalents of Nintendo's Wii Fit or Konami's Dance Dance Revolution" in basic training. This sounds rather silly to us, but what do we know? We're lovers, not fighters.
