Parents hardly tell their kids to “go outside and play” anymore. In fact, that phrase is in danger of going extinct because kids these days are busy indoors with their phones, tablets and laptops, and you can’t exactly blame them because technology offers a lot to do. However, it’s important to get your kids to go outside and encourage them to engage in some kind of physical activity, because the last thing you want is for your child to have a lifestyle that is similar to a bear in hibernation. Parents: please ensure your child does not contribute to the rising childhood obesity rate as the consequences can range from diabetes to liver disease to bone and joint problems. If you can get your kids outside this Easter, you’ll be well on your way to preventing them from becoming another unfortunate statistic.

When Stephen Hawking was 12 years old, one of his friends bet another child a bag of sweets that Stephen Hawking would never amount to anything. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out who was on the losing side of that bet. Though Hawking certainly was a genius, he gave the following reply when he was asked for his IQ: “I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers.” He did not let his physical handicap stop him from having a sense of humor.
