Default How come you never see people outside anymore?

Everywhere I go, there's hardly kids playing outside, you never see anybody anymore on a hot summer day! I think they are all inside on ISH.

Blame video games, the internet, and the fact that kids have more structured activities than they did 10-15 years ago. Combine these factors, especially the first two, and when kids do have the desire to go out, they don't have as much creativity anymore, so play doesn't last as long.

That's night time. What about during the day? There's no one outside to play ball or anything.. only in the courts

Not around here.

In texas, the summer heat and humidity make daytime activities less than pleasant (I work outside most summers, thankfully not this one).
as MLH pointed out, the xbox, satellite tv, and internet are time wasters. We are generally less active overall than we used to be (one reason we are a nation of fatties). Not so much in urban areas (as VC points out), but in many areas where stores, bars, etc arent walking distance, you drive.


I remember riding my bike through the neighborhood as a kid (with a whole gang) and it seemed like everybody wa out walking (thier baby, their dog, just to get some fresh air). I dont see that as much anymore. When people are outside they are either exercising themselves or their dog.

I would def. be outside more if there was stuff to do around here. Everything is a 20 minute drive away. This town has NOTHING to do. I'm glad I'm not a kid growing up here. No parks, no rec centers, no NOTHING. I'm glad I'm moving soon.

it is the only state allowed to keep its own standing army (though it really doesnt any more), it can withdraw from the union if it wants, and it can still split itself into 5 seperate states as well. It is also the only state (other than Hawaii) that was its own country at one point (not part of mexico, etc.). ALthough you could argue that the mormon King Strang on Beaver Island, Lake Michigan was its own country as well.
