I'm not jocking.
A huge proportion of Mises's staff are overweight, if not plainy obese.
Block, DiLorenzo, Rockwell, French, Long, Maltsev, Raico, Thornton, Murphy, Woods, Cantor, are all on the fat track to a hearth attack.
This needs to become at big priority at the Insitute.
What can we do to help?
Maybe a new category for the 'Donate' form, to send contributions for "staff personal trainers"?
Best... Thread... Ever.
Or just teach AE to bodybuilders.
Block, maybe. Everyone else, not really.

I think that has more to do with their being middle-aged than being actually fat.
Human Action: Get Off Your Ass
And Bob Murphy wouldn't be nearly as intimidating as a welterweight:
I would speculate that they feel that it's better to self-sacrifice for the sake of society (putting in lots of work for the institute, seminars and campaining) instead of taking the time to improve their personal lives.
As such, I believe there's a danger in setting the wrong example (of self-sacrifice).
Eating also has a lot to do with psychology, which I believe is not their strongest point; considering most of them are religious.
The Oppurtunity Cost of working out is too high.
Nice. Murphy has a great sense of humor and doesn't take himself too seriously.
