Like authors, songwriters are often encouraged to "write what you know." The songs on Shallow Believer, the most recent EP by the platinum-selling rockers of The Used, boast such titles as "Sick Hearts," "Dark Days," and "Slit Your Throat." I don't know if I want to know what they know, you know?

Wii Fit has been a craze for Nintendo Wii since its release in May 2008. The idea that the public took away from the game's announcement was simple: Wii Fit is working out made fun and easy. Now that the game is finally in steady stock, I decided it was time to give it a shot.

The key thing I discovered my first day of using it was that even though it's marketed as a game, it's not by any means easy. Do not be fooled by the idea that this is a game that happens to have exercise in it; a 30-minute workout is still a 30-minute workout.
