Taxing recreational exercise

Partially tongue-in-cheek, but some sincere discussion of the social cost of cheap-food-derived-from-excess-carbon-use.

The tongue-in-cheek part also at least questions the idea of exercise: if our bodies were cars, we'd be filling them past the brim with gas and then occasionally driving them around the block a few times (or maybe even prop them up in the garage and run them for a while a la the ferrari in Ferris Beuller), while regularly loading the whole thing into a flatbed tow truck to get around.
