    what are you saying that is cool will be awsome when you have the full array and have something that will make arms heavy when you have a sword out your attack speed will be how fast and long you can swing you sword no longer will geeks be small and wimpy!

    Paul Tillich defined Holy as simultaneously awesome to behold and mortally frightening at the same time. This covers a lot of ground, including every nature scene I ever thought was truly amazing. But not that video, that's just... I don't know. What is that?

    Ironically I've been thinking of some way to do that...set up my computer so I can alternately use a chair or an exercise bike/treadmill/something. I do currently often sit on a stability ball rather than a chair when I play and get some core work. If I don't do that I'm really fidgety when I'm playing and I get up and pace frequently (um, yay autoattack?)...and if I'm just on a bike or treadmill at the gym I get SUPER BORED just watching TV or whatever and I tend to disengage and quit early.

    So basically I don't sit still very well, and I'm no good with repetitive action without something to engage my attention. (ADD much?) I'm totally good if I'm getting my exercise through playing a sport. Run 5 miles on a treadmill? No way. Run 5 miles over the course of a soccer game? NOOOOOOO problem! (That's part of why I play so many sports but don't normally maintain a gym membership :) I know what fitness program actually works for me.) If I could combine gaming with physical movement? That would rock.

    What I recommend is that you use gaming time as rest time in between workouts and cardio, which is a huge reason I don't go on vent while gaming with you guys... as soon as I hit a loading screen you know I'll be off my ass and having music for spinning really helps.
