"Purposeless Wandering"

As a small offering, a couple of signs of the times: Scale manufacturers have increased the industry standard for the top reading from 270-300 pounds to 330-400 pounds in response to the fattening of America. It's certainly a lot more convenient than taking your kids to the truck scales to be weighed.

On a similar note, perhaps encouraged by the fact that you don't see a lot of fat, homeless, crazy people, the CDC endorses "purposeless wandering" as exercise. I like that. It kind of puts a positive spin on a kind of sad, pointless activity. Of course, if it's exercise, it's no longer purposeless.
