Suck it, fatty! The pic in my profile says otherwise.

By todays standards, Leon would be rather svelte. I don't think I really recognized how many fat Americans there are until I went to Europe and noticed significantly fewer morbidly obese people riding around on their Rascals.

It's regional, too. It is definitely the case that some regions of the US are *significantly* fatter than others.

Speak for yourself. I don't even weigh enough to donate blood.

/A-neg
/Not that I'd be likely to donate even if I did weigh enough. Needles make me pass out.
