But if we let kids ride their bicycles to school we won't hit our 40% obesity goal.

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

But if we let kids ride their bicycles to school we won't hit our 40% obesity goal.

Are you saying that if we master our brains to cope we won't notice as the populace around us turns into the tubs of goo from Wall-E, that kids are mastering their brains so they're really not getting fat and we just think they are, or am I giving you way too much credit here?
