Love the list! I think this would also be a good time to tell you fellow shitlords about an awesome book I came across called Spark by John Ratey MD, which has lots of modern science showing that aerobic activity and healthy BMI's have strong connections to mental health and intelligence.

It has examples of schools that cut down class hours to fit in a mandatory fitness-based gym class that all have been skyrocketing on standardized testing regardless of wealth or crime of the school district. It's a wonderful read, and it really makes me hope for the shitlord movement pushing against the obesity epidemic in the US.
