The fact that the long list of activities excludes sex shows how nerdy the target audience is. Either they don't have sex, or they do it so badly that even 'cards' is considered a more sporty activity....

    .. or they do it so well it is classified as 'performance'.

    C'mon, Abigail-II, doesn't Crossing Distances include sex, also? I mean, going from the bed to the floor, to the kitchen table, to wherever. Isn't that Crossing Distances?

    Oh!... I thought that was what the "balls" option was for. Can I change my vote please?

    Depends which definition of sport you use. You'll note that Amorous dalliance; lovemaking. is an obsolete definition. Being such an old-timer you might not have noticed, but currently used variations concentrate on competition in some way.

    And while sex has been a competitive activity in some times and places (why does ancient Roman history come to mind?), most of us are more familiar with organized competitions in things like poker and bridge than in sex.

    On another note, I must admit that I have to wonder why cards would be split out from games in general. Perhaps a sign of someone who takes "Go Fish!" waaaay too seriously?

      I assumed "Gaming" referred to live-action role-playing. (I suppose table-top, such as dungeons and dragons, would fit there too, but if /that/ is the sportiest activity that I do regularly, then you are headed for ill health really quick.)

    First off, this also shows how pro-male the question is which is perfectly understandable - no dancing, no aerobics, no yoga.

    As for sex...
    that can fall under
    Balls
    Rackets
    Bats, clubs...
    Unmotorized land vehicles
    Motorized land vehicles
    Flight
    Watercraft
    Water sports
    Snow/ice
    Climbing
    Wildlife
    Domestic animals
    Projectiles
    Sparring
    Crossing distances
    Performance
    Gaming
    None (or programming)

    The only one I couldn't figure out a situation for is Cards. Oh the limits of my imagination. Oh wait! There we go. Yup, can be classified under Cards too.
      Oh I dunno, I looked for 'dancing' but had to slot in under 'performance' instead. It sure is an odd list though.

    That's why I had trouble choosing between Wildlife & Projectiles.

    I answered "domestic animals", meaning sex. After all, aren't humans domestic animals?
