NOUN: The condition of good physical and mental health, especially when maintained by proper diet, exercise, and habits.


I think it must be one of those New-Age Vegitarian Left-Wing Commie Pinko Wacked-Out Ultra-Liberal terms that infected the language like a virus. :wink:

It's also the most boring class required of sophomores there is. They make the coaches teach it, i.e. the guys who ramble on, use worksheets, and pretend they're teaching you something.
