wii ddr

The wii ddr kicks my butt. I haven't played it much before, and the wii version requires the use of your arms as well, so I'm like totally wiped right now, after 20 mins. And my feet hurts. i did the workout program.. they used kcal rather then calories.

that was FUN!

one kcal = one Calorie (note the capitolization). All american "calories" in food are actually Calories. A calorie (lower case) is 1/1000 of a kcal.

are you sure one calorie isn't equal to 12 milocalories or something like that ;-)

Just kidding! Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure if it was metric-ish or not.

not metricish
Nah. Metricish would be KJ, energy is measure in joules, aka newton*meter

Though there's the same silliness here, people generally say joules, and mean kilo-joules. A joule is just to small a unit for these things, just like the calorie
