I'm not sure how I could be any more on topic!!!! – KodeKreachor Mar 19 '12 at 21:48

@Sancho is correct that your question is unrelated to fitness or exercise. On top of that your question is basically asking for a list of answers, which should never be your goal. So the more important question is: what do you need the database for? And if that goal has a relation to exercise, how can we help you reach that goal instead? – Ivo Flipse Mar 20 '12 at 23:42
