Cool Health/Sports/Fitness Section

I think we should have a health/fitness/nutrition section under Miscellaneous.

It'd be nice to sort of balance out these forums with such a section because technology tends to be a very passive field-of-interest/hobby. There seems to be a decent few health-knowledeagle people here and some interest from members to get in shape or lead a better healthier lifestyle...

so what do you think? I mean, we have sections already existing that don't get as much activity as this section probably will...

Sounds good. Now we just need everyone to post before and after pictures.

Or not. w/e

eh yeah, I used to go to such a forum, and the 'before and after' section consisted only of peoples' before pics, and they'd never update because they probably failed at losing the weight

Posting before pictures would be embarrasing, but not posting after pics would be even more.

Yeah I support it. The Off-Topic section has quite a few threads that would fit in this new category.

Since this is a tech forum, the off topic forum is where that will probably stay. Thanks for the suggestion.
