In Baltimore they pull statistics out of their fat ass
 
2006-01-06 12:09:53 PM
Everyone knows that 73.6% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

There are tons (pun intended) of fat people in Baltimore. Just go to any Wal-Mart, they're drawn there like moths to a flame.

However, there seems to be a disproportionate amount of health clubs and gyms there. That might be how they ranked so high, one study may have just counted the number of gyms per square mile or something.
 
2006-01-06 12:12:55 PM
I have personally seen far more fatties in Baltimore than I have ever seen in Chicago.
 
2006-01-06 12:14:28 PM
Baltimore has DC envy. That explains all the gyms.

And have you seen their crappy Washington Monument? pfft.

I don't read Men's Fitness magazine, but I saw the article in Men's Health. I think it was right next to the column on "How to get laid at a wedding" or was it "How to make others think you are a real man". Or maybe that was another issue. Who knows, it's all the same crap.

One of the most disturbing things about my trip to DC last spring was the sheer quantity of giant, yard-wide asses. It seemed like everywhere I went, every street I walked down, I'd be following two huge, gyrating, amorphous blobs of fat that I'll call "buttocks" simply because, referring to standard human anatomy, that's where these blobs seemed centralized.
 
2006-01-06 12:24:20 PM
In my experience, 15 percent of statisticians pretty much ruin it for the other 90%.

Yeah, I know. I hate all the farking out of town tourists that flood this city.

/except TF'ers, of course.
 
2006-01-06 12:26:57 PM
If you're talkin' about yard-wide asses, they're most likely natives. There's nothing in DC I'd buy two bus or plane tickets to see.
 
2006-01-06 12:33:27 PM
I have great news:

There is something coming out of my ass and it ain't statistics.

As you were

Baltimore IS the fittest city in the US:

You have to keep fit running from the police, muggers, rapists, etc...
 
2006-01-06 01:08:05 PM
I ain't no fat ayis hon, now han me unuthur Miwwer Lite.

Brodan: Men's Health, Men's Fitness, it's all gay.


From the article:

he says it took additional factors into account this year that worked in Baltimores favor... Among them:... the leadership of Mayor Martin OMalley.

Men's Fitness is not just gay. It's gay for Marty!

Milwaukee 5th? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Oh, that's a good one!
 
2006-01-06 03:59:13 PM
I think the issue is whether Baltimore is designated so as to include Dundalk or not.
 
2006-01-06 03:59:16 PM
Didn't I see this headline before? hmmm...must be the crack.
 
2006-01-06 04:00:52 PM
Any one been to Boulder, CO. Fittest twn evr.
 
2006-01-06 04:02:41 PM
Yay! A second thread for my to plug Fast Eddie's Pit Beef outside Baltimore in Aberdeen, MD.

But I don't think Baltimore would have made it if Divine hadn't died!

I have rated myself as the wealthiest man in America in the past, but then again I place much value on belly button fuzz.
 
2006-01-06 04:02:52 PM
You'll at least notice in the article all the people from Bawlmer they interviewed seemed pretty surprised at the number 1 ranking.

I sure as hell was.
 
2006-01-06 04:03:27 PM
Don't know about fit but man is Baltimore is dirty. Theres like a 2 block radius at the inner harbor that is nice from like 11 to 4. No wonder the mayors biggest accomplishment is "population decline is down 16%" or some crap like that. Charm city my ass.
 
2006-01-06 04:03:46 PM
/Baltimoron and fit.
 
2006-01-06 04:03:51 PM
Who writes this crap, O Reilly?
 
2006-01-06 04:04:10 PM
Maybe by "fittest" they mean "most heroin addicted" then by gum, it's true.
 
2006-01-06 04:04:10 PM
The only thing cool about Balmore is Fells Point and crabcakes.
 
2006-01-06 04:04:11 PM
Any one been to Boulder, CO. Fittest twn evr.

Now if the chicks would just start shaving their legs and the city could figure out a way to get rid of all that teenage riff-raff hanging around on street corners in the bar district, they'd be set.

NOTE: Arlington, VA is near D.C.... However, it is NOT, in fact, D.C.

It's like all the Jersey folks saying they are from NYC.

BTW, D.C. people are buying homes in Baltimore, not the other way around...

Christ, Dundalk. That place has to be the nexus of the universe. Too much strange shiat goes on there.

Dag.. no end italics after lunchinlewis. Drat.
 
2006-01-06 04:05:46 PM
Ahhh, charm city! From your gyrating "strippers" on Baltimore street that can't go full nude, to that drunken chick from Towson that Lewinski'd me behind HammerJacks, I'll never forget the good times!

You can always tell when a Marylander wanders down into NoVA, because their car is tilted toward the driver side. If there are passengers, the tailpipe makes sparks on the highway surface.

People from Northern Virginia are really impressed with people from Northern Virginia... not many other people are though.
 
2006-01-06 04:11:03 PM
I can't help but to think I've seen this story somewhere else today....hmmmm.
 
2006-01-06 04:11:07 PM
I thought it was Houston. Ohhh, FITtest.
 
2006-01-06 04:12:28 PM
Nashville-Davidson is 12th? Thats a laugh too. Who the hell made up this crap, and why do they suck so bad at making stuff up?
 
2006-01-06 04:13:23 PM
If they are #1, I bet it's from running away from the cops.

/#1 in corrupt cops, for sure

Didn't I just see this quote in the "Chicago is America's Fattest City" thread down the page?

One of the most disturbing things about my trip to DC last spring was pretty much any place you go in North America, except maybe Montreal, is the sheer quantity of giant, yard-wide asses.

Fixed it...

If you're talkin' about yard-wide asses, they're most likely natives. There's nothing in DC I'd buy two bus or plane tickets to see.

The Capitol Building? The Mall? The Smithsonian? The Air and Space Museum? The Lincoln, Jefferson and Washington Memorials? The Botanical Gardens? The Spy Museum? The US Mint? The Holocost Museum? The White House? The Herschorn? The National Museum of Art? Across the river, Arlington Cemetary? Etc? Etc?
