Lsherm: * $5,530 more per year in medical costs for a Mayo worker with a BMI above 40. By comparison, smokers' medical costs were only $1,274 a year higher than nonsmokers', who generally die earlier.They're coming for ya, fatties!

Expolaris: Smoky Dragon Dish: Bariatric Toilet? Who's bad karma got them reborn as this?[www.acorneng.com image 640x250]You know this was invented because some 700 pound guy ended up picking porcelain out of his ass and didn't take that as a wake up call.

meat0918: Funbags: [i.imgur.com image 625x600]What hauling ass might look like...Yeah, my step dad has one of those...He's finally gotten the wake up call with his most recent diabetes diagnosis.Waking up 10 years ago during kidney surgery because his excessive weight threw off the anesthesiologist, not a wake up call.Waking up during neck surgery 6 years ago, because again his now even more excessive weight dulled the drugs, not a wake up call.Being paralyzed from the waist down after that surgery(initially he was fine, but the pressure of his body on his weakened spinal column pinched a nerve and he lost movement until recently, not a wake up call.Realizing he can walk in a pool with the majority of his weight supported by the water, not a wake up call.Finally being diagnosed with diabetes, that's his wake up call. He's lost over 100lbs at this point, but he is still around 390. At least he's finally, FINALLY doing something.//He gives himself another 3 years before he'll be dead.

Ajanu: What's the cost of replacing all the crap pre-packaged food you find in grocery stores, and replacing all the fast food restaurants with just restaurants? There would obviously be some savings if what is served as a meal some places was portioned correctly and served to 2-3 people. There would also be the added cost of waiting for your food almost 10x longer.I am not saying fat people are not to blame for their size generally (other medical issues can cause you to gain or hold weight unnaturally), but there is significant cost savings in eating the crap food people do, both in time and food cost, if you replaced it with an equal volume or calorie count of healthier foods. If that worked out to be more than the cost of obiesity, would that mean America is actually doing it right?

rumpelstiltskin: Yeah, but heaven forbid they pay extra for a flight. That's because it's still only one person, and it would be unfair to charge one person more than another.. But I wonder, has anyone ever checked that? Has anyone ever actually cut open a fatty to see what's inside? There could be a whole village of people in there, for all we know.
9beers: In this thread you'll find a bunch of 20 something people telling us how they'll never be fat. We'll check back with them in 20 years and see how that works out.

hallotavagyna: According to a BMI Index, I'm overweight. 26.336 year old male. 6'2", 205 lbs. I'm benching 225, squatting 300 & dead lifting 350. My jeans are 33 waist, 34 leg.I can see my abs.I loves being a fatty!
kidgenius: in a preponderance of cases, obesity is due to factors that are well within the control of the individual. if you don't have the self control to keep yourself from getting fat, you are deserving of whatever ridicule you receive.
meat0918: hallotavagyna: According to a BMI Index, ...This is where I say BMI applies to groups, not individuals.//I'd guess you have a pretty low BF%. ...

kab: Needlessly large / heavy vehicles, poorly planned urban sprawl, and laughably inadequate public transportation outside of large metro areas.I wonder how much all that costs in fuel per year?
