Default Your Gov't is why you are fat.

The New York State Department of Health created the list of risky recreational activities in response to a state law passed in 2009.

The games are not banned at camps, but they come at a play-at-your-own-risk cost. Camps that want campers to play the games will be required to pay a $200 registration fee and have medical staff on hand. There are roughly 2,300 regulated summer camps in New York that are required to be under permit and be inspected twice a year by the state's Department of Health.

Games/activities on the warning list:
* Capture the Flag
* Crab Soccer
* Dodgeball
* Flag Tag
* Flag Football
* Ga Ga
* Kickball
* Nuk-em
* Red Rover
* Steal the Bacon
* Tag (all varieties)
* Wiffle Ball


The goal is control.

Notice how doing situps and jumping jacks in front of your telescreen are not on the list.

I only know a few of those... I played them all and I'm fine. Getting hurt as a kid is part of life.

What if you just change the names of the games? Or add a new rule and change the name.

At least there is no fee for allowing kids to pump up on a swing and jump off....

Sheeeet...we used to do that in school and I'm surprised I never broke any bones with some of the distance/air I got. I did learn the fun way that when using a swing, once you pass the parallel-with-the-ground point, that you end up going backwords and going into a freefall until the chains jerk you to a stop while falling nearly head-first toward the Earth....and sometimes the chains proved to be too srong for the rubber seat...which would break...and send you down for a nice meeting with Mother Earth. Oh the days.....

Here's more. The government's "all fat is bad" message since the 80s meant people ate a lot more starch: result: FATNESS.

Here's a funny documentary explaining some of the technical stuff behind it:

Everybody should go through (something like) Marine Corps boot camp. Cant do 50 push-ups at age 20? TOO GODDAMN BAD FATTY, NOW YOU HAVE TO LIVE IN A HOLE!! AHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA

For serious though, people are such pussies. I ******* loved dodgeball, best game ever, and know a bunch of douchebags who are afraid of getting hurt want to warn us about it's soft rubbery danger.

The government does make bad food cheap through subsidies though.

But the government advised people to eat less fat, causing them to eat more starch, which made them fat. And if you follow the money, the influence was due to the Big Agri lobby.

Medical staff for dodgeball? Flag football? Damn, there goes half of high school gym class. (Yes I know it is regarding summer camps, just making a point) We should make kids in school pass mandatory minimums or they can't graduate.

I'm assuming that (fraudulent) litigation is the ultimate root cause for this. Somebody's little Johnny or Suzy got their *** whooped at sports/games and cried until mommy and daddy sued NY.

Our grandparents would call us a bunch of whiny little bitches.
