Where does "bread and butter" come from?

When walking on the strip in Vegas recently, a couple walking toward me was forced to split to either side of me, and the woman said "bread and butter!". I remember my mom using this phrase when I was a kid, but it was the first time I'd heard it from someone else. What's the origin of this phrase? [more inside]

How can an extremely obese and underconditioned man begin exercising?

Is walking at your normal walking rate, but increasing the distance you walk, sufficient enough to be considered exercise? Can anyone recommend exercises for people who are very underconditioned and extremely obese, but not in poor cardiac health? And, finally, is there a medical professional who is the equivalent of a gym's personal trainer? (More inside.) [more inside]

Help me be compelling

Have you ever been on a guided walking tour? What did you like about it? What did you dislike? Was the subject matter most important, or the presentation? How long was it? Was it focused narrowly (like, sites to pick up dudes in the Castro) or more broadly (like, the history of Manhattan) I would love to hear as much detail as possible about the walking tours that have bored you, thrilled you, or just made your feet hurt. Thank you!

How do I stop the habit of walking around the house when thinking something or having my lunch or dinner ?

I have a habit of walking to and fro from one room of my house to another, whenever I am thinking something, or even when I am having my lunch or dinner ? I am aware this is not a good habit, as I waste valuable calories in the process (I am a thin person by the way). How do I get rid of this habit ? Please give some innovative ideas. Has anyone else suffered from the same habit ? Basically I am quite a restless person. This habit looks quite odd in front of guests.

Best mobile music?

What's the best way to have music with me as I walk? CD player, ipod, satellite radio? I walk for exercise and relaxation, and would like to be able to listen to, say, Bach, or Charlie Mingus while I do so? What's the simplest, most reliable way to do this? I have about 350 CDs. I have maybe 50 MP3s. Quality satellite radio is also fine. Mainly I am looking for an easy, portable way to always have music with me as I walk, if I want it. Thanks.
