He must live next door to the boy that ate nothing but jam sandwiches for 14 years, and drank lots of milk. Come to think about it, they're the same height and weight. Hey, who knows, they may be twins.

What the f*ck does "91/2st" mean?
2004-07-11 06:56:35 AM  
It means they have no clue what they're talking about, because its the same as the previously posted article, except that teh kid was eating jam sandwiches, instead of chips.,4057,10096892^13762,00.html

Nine and a half stone - one stone = 14 pounds
2004-07-11 03:57:03 PM  
Why hasn't he died of scurvy yet?
2004-07-11 05:39:13 PM  
Take THAT, Super size me!!
2004-07-11 05:39:56 PM  
9 1/2 stones=roughly 133lbs.

since this is british I am assuming his diet consists of fried potatoes and not doritos?
2004-07-11 05:40:37 PM  
what kind of chips? the french fry chips or potato chips from a bag
2004-07-11 05:42:04 PM  
Web India is the most credible source I have ever encountered. I trust them whole-heartedly.
2004-07-11 05:42:19 PM  
chips = fries
crisps = chips

/goofy Brits and their former colonial subjects
2004-07-11 05:42:20 PM  
French fries, baby.
2004-07-11 05:42:37 PM  
Personally, I think I could live off of haddock and chips

/more malt vinegar, please
2004-07-11 05:43:48 PM  
i dunno if i believe this one, but i do know from my expereince of being a near-broke college student that you CAN survive on chips and beer alone for weeks at a time.

i never considered that the diet could be healthy though...

/ahh, i miss the days of beer mooching and easy-to-rip-off vending machines.
2004-07-11 05:44:00 PM  
His diet excludes meat, poultry, fruit, vegetables or dairy food


However, he drinks several pints of milk a day

I'd figure milk to be a dairy food...
2004-07-11 05:46:27 PM can smell the shennanigans...
2004-07-11 05:46:45 PM  
What kind of chips? Buffalo? Poker? Potato? Off the old block? Wood? etc? W/o any fruits or veggies, I would expect scurvy to develop due to a lack of vitamin C.

Not if you take food to mean "solid nourishment", which I assume is what they meant.
2004-07-11 05:49:14 PM  
cavex, potatoes are a good source of vitamin C. Learn somethingfor once, you big empty-headed doofus!

/felt like insulting someone today
2004-07-11 05:49:15 PM  
I agree with hubiestubert...I CALL SHENANIGANS!
2004-07-11 05:49:48 PM  
If you live on a raft and eat nothing but fish, you get scurvy!

Gosh, my Super NES has taught me a lot.

Also, as a side note, if this happened in the U.S., DHR would be on those parents faster than a duck on a june bug.
2004-07-11 05:53:58 PM  
Try living on nothing but cunny juice for that last 3 years then talk to me...pffft...amatuers.
2004-07-11 05:54:40 PM  
Had a friend in college. He was grossly overweight, so he decided to try to lose weight by eating only his favorite food for a year. He went from 350 lbs. to 155 lbs. in one year eating only chocolate. Hey, it worked for him. Just saying.
2004-07-11 05:55:50 PM  
Jeebus Farking Cheerist- this kid had gastroenteritis for a week when he was two so he went on a French Fry and Milk diet for 14 years? Gastroenteritis is just the freaking stomach flu!

I've puked my brains out more times than I care to think about, I never started living my life like a freak...

/thinks about it...

No! Never! What a whackjob.

/did eat Cracker Jack once till I puked myself silly, haven't really ever touched em since
2004-07-11 05:57:40 PM  
Copyboy! Get this to rewrite. redo it with freedom fries and W catsup. IN THE LEDE, idiot. Who reads the second graph?

DHR? Department of Human Rehabilitation? Of course with the way things are going, yep sounds about right.

course now if they were fries from McDonalds then I guess it would be ok
2004-07-11 06:02:15 PM  
I believe it...I babysit for a boy who eats little besides chips (the american kind), peanut butter sandwiches on white bread and milk. But he's also about as big around as pencil.

jimmyjackfunk...DHR: Department of Human Resources. It's called different things in different places, but they are the people who run foster care, foodstamps, child welfare, etc. They are the ones who keep screwing up and letting the babykiller mommas get their kids back after "uncle" so-and-so beat and raped momma while the kids watched only to have those children wind up dead from being thrown at a wall because they "wouldn't shut the hell up".

/excuse me, miss, your anger is showing

OMG a dialectical difference in languages that were essentially isolated for 200 years! LOLOLOLorrrss!!!one!!1eleven

hunh hunh You're (your) sew stupid for saying "I left my lorry (truck), full of aluminium (aluminum) for the new lifts (elevators), down at the car park (parking lot) since it had a flat (apartment) tyre (tire). Bugger! (Fark!)
2004-07-11 06:43:01 PM  
Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Dr. Atkins!
2004-07-11 06:47:59 PM  

Still, it does sound kinda pointless to say " I don't eat any dairy products, and I drink a lot of milk."

Funny comments. :-)

I remember reading someplace that the three things that humans could live on alone were potato, bread, and peanuts. Not sure how true it is, and not sure if it meant you had to eat all 3. Something struck me as credible about it.

/dares someone to prove it, as I am to lazy to do my own legwork and curious.
2004-07-11 07:14:47 PM  
I think by the age that the fatty in niroth's pic is able to bust a double horizontal on some unlucky (probably fellow fatty) girl, he'll be lucky to see his wang. Seems he's already unable to see his shoes, hence the velcro.
2004-07-11 07:24:22 PM  
Hell, I went on a beer-and-bratwurst diet, with the occasional brochen, for two years in Germany!

/Not that the mess-hall food was bad, which it wasn't, know

/Jager, too

LineNoise, I think you'd be missing some crucial amino acids?

I've always heard liver was about the most nutrient-dense crapola you can eat.
2004-07-11 08:20:00 PM  
Bah that's nothing.
I've been living off Kraft Diner for 30 years now.

I know of a guy who eats a bag of Wize potato chips a day. During between lunch & dinner. He appears normal in every way but his stomach looks like a girls who is 3 month pregnant.

Useless, unrealated information from a Radiohead fan.

True Love Waits

"....And true love waits
In haunted attics
And true love lives
On lollipops and crisps...."

"According to Thom, the line "On lollipops and crisps" is from an article he read: "I read an article about a child who was between 5-8 yrs old who was left on his/her own for a week in a house when his parents left on hoilday and he lived on lollipops on crisps. True"

/flame bait
2004-07-12 01:35:23 AM  
Flame bait? Flamed out is more like it.
hey DICKYTHESTRINGBOY, good observation on the velcro.
2004-07-12 12:54:15 PM  
There's no mystery or surprise here.
The kid is drinking several pints of milk each day.
Check out the nutrition info on milk.
You can live healthy on it alone.

If it's on it must be true.
