Increased CO2 in the atmosphere is caused by global warming. Global warming, as everyone knows, is caused by the decline in number of pirates. Therefore, the decline in pirates causes fat people. More pirates = less fat people. QED

FTFA:

"When he looked around for other factors, he saw how the CO2 concentration of the atmosphere had also increased in correlation to the weight gain."

Along with:

Computer use.
The number of fast-food takeaway restaurants.
Monetary inflation.
Artificial satellites.

I hadn't realized it until just now, but the Somali pirate raids are happening at the same time that temperatures have reached a short-term plateau.

Therefore, pirates can save the world.

Interesting piece of research, but I'd need to see a hell of a lot more than one study before giving it any credence.

Now this is interesting. I'd wager the right and far right is substantially more overweight and obese than the left. Also, they are by and large the only and loudest global-warming deniers. I can't wait to see how they manage to use this study to shed any blame for being ugly, fat f*cks while simultaneously re-doubling their efforts to claim global warming is a lie and a myth.

GeneralJim: Some dumb people don't believe man landed on the Moon, so global warming CAN'T be a hoax. That's some fine logic you have there. Remember this phrase: "Do you want fries with that?"


Which is it, Jim? Do you take umbrage with spurious associations of your group with wholly unrelated fringe groups, or do you freely do such a thing yourself? Or, like all insane people, is your internal morality such that whatever behaviour is convenient for your argument is the ethics du jour for you?

So yes, I will take fries with that, and if I have to say "no pickles" twice, your manager will hear about it.

I'm confused. Does "vaxxer" refer to someone for or against vaccinations?

No, this is just the Daily Fail buying into a correlation=causation fallacy that would get any serious research paper File 13'd midway through peer review. However, I do see a strong link between Global Warming and stylized fonts on Fark.

It actually refers to somebody for vaccination. Anti-vaxxer is the epithet used to describe the anti-vaccination crowd, but Jim is stupid so he managed to fark that up too. Still, it's uncharitable to pretend we didn't understand his meaning, and we would be wrong to focus on that. After all, we are infinitely more his superiors.

And here I thought the smart people who think vaccines are good called them Anti-vaxxers. You know because they are against vaccines.

FTFA:

He now proposed that orexins, a type of hormone which reside in the brain and stimulate wakefulness and energy expenditure, may be affected by CO2.

The hormones regulate when we go to bed, as well as the stimulation of food intake.

You know who is exposed to elevated levels of CO2? People who drink a lot of beer and other carbonated drinks. And yes, they tend to be fatter than normal.

It's amusing, because if confronted on it, he'll claim that he's showing "solidarity" with the Iranian people (you know, the green uprising that took the world by storm). Of course, Jim's still doing it. What he never explains, even when called on it, is if that was the case, why was he bolding his posts and signing them before making them green, such as this post (along with many other all-bold, signed examples in that thread).

He was, of course, being called an attention whore even back then for his behaviour, and rightly so. The green text Iranian solidarity is just a bullshiat excuse he uses to soothe his ego that he's not really attention whoring. He can't explain that if that's the case, why he was AW'ing with gimmick posts before finding a new gimmick that he can huff and puff and accuse people of being against freedom if they call him on it, but he'll do it all the same.

I want you to notice that the darker colors are also the GOP states.

Feel free to favorite me. I never turn on people, I always call it like I see it, and am honest and consistent. You see, if you always speak your mind, and engage others honestly, you don't ever have to worry about lies, or contradicting yourself!
I'm also always available to help with anything related to bikes. Lets put it this way, if I call you out for something, you almost certainly deserved it ;)
