The times, they are a'changin.

It seems that the youth of America are getting too fat to join the armed forces. Our sedentary lifestyles have made us ill-prepared for military training and injuries during boot camp are on the rise. What ever will they do?

The theory is that games will be more approachable a concept and encourage recruits to keep moving.

My parents' generation thought that they could bring down the military-industrial complex with love. Turns out they might have had more success with Twinkies. God, I love this country.
