One Internet Buck says that the Daily Fail swaps the "before" and "after" pictures on their stories (which probably aren't even pictures of the people in the stories).

Wait, I've been to WDW a few times, and have an annual pass to Disneyland. What ride has special "Fat people" seats? I've never seen that.

I noticed this same thing happen at Universal on The Hulk. Picked a guy out of line and made him use a specific seat. I couldn't see well enough to tell what was different about it. I was in line for the front seat (well worth the extra wait on that ride).

Ditto. I've been to Disneyland twice in the last four days, and countless times over the last few years. Never seen anything like this.

People say "oh she'd be so pretty if she'd just lose the weight" without really meaning it. She actually is pretty without the heft.
 
2012-08-30 02:12:33 PM
And the sad thing is, she's 'just' fat here, not OMG WHALE!

Theme parks are adding wider seats, usually as an option next to the regular sizes. I've seen them at Six Flags here in Dallas. Come to think of it, I've seen three sizes on one ride which swings overhead and needs to be balanced -- biggest ones in the center, slightly smaller ones to either side, and then regular size on the ends.

I was the guy in the fat seat at Universal. I'm big but not huge.

Disney wasn't an issue on any of the rides. I've never noticed fat seats at Disney in 2 trips there.

Oh man that is the best quote of the day!!!

Give that guy crediting for buying long. Pretty good return on his investment.

So fat, when she hauls ass, biatch gotta make two trips!
 
2012-08-30 02:23:00 PM
Good for her. She looks great now. But there is no way she got that fat on 3000 calories per day as it said in the article. I bet she was eating around 8000 calories a day.
 
2012-08-30 02:26:05 PM
Me and my buddies were recently talking about how we feel like we eat pretty much anything we want every day and we're not fat. And I asked "I mean, how much food do you have to eat to get obese? That seems crazy that we eat like this and we're healthy." (We do occasionally have a salad if our lunch was a bowl of lard to make some attempt at evening our day out)

All of us pretty much eat two meals a day. Lunch around 11 or 12 and dinner at 5 or 6. And we don't generally hold back. We'll get cheese steaks, Mexican, Chinese, whatever. But then I read things like this. Eating 3 god damn dinners. Literally 1.5x of our entire days food in one sitting, and it makes me realize that people get fat not because of WHAT they eat. I truely is how MUCH you eat.

Eat your cheeseburger. Enjoy it. Don't feel bad about it. But for god's sake don't have 3 of them.

/Where was I even going with this?

"If I'm considered fat in America, I really must be"

Sorry, Britain, but your obesity rate is nipping at the heels of the US and you no longer have the right to call any nation fat.

As much as I enjoy breasts (and I do really enjoy them), hers are just too large.
I know, AVG said a woman's breasts were too large.

Ah, the "americans are fat" schtick. Someone from Europe should know better. For some loud, fat, boorish shiat, you simply MUST hang around a pack of German tourists.

They need them for taller people and just overall larger people too. People think I'm afraid of coasters, but really the problem is my chest and shoulders are so huge and I sit high that the shoulder harness doesn't fit or close at the right angle. I get raddled around and my back will be sore for a week. I don't like that.

I almost fell out of Apollo's chariot. I laugh about it now but that was not funny.

Those were metric calories, you have to convert.
 
2012-08-30 02:34:06 PM
I hope she keeps the weight off. Good on her for taking an embarassing incident as a life-changing one.
 
2012-08-30 02:35:11 PM
So there you have it. Proof positive that "fat shaming" does actually work.

As a former tubby who has lost 60 pounds in the last 8 months, I gotta give the girl a hand (and she's hawt!)...

My "come to Jesus" moment was a health checkup that revealed my blood pressure and cholesterol to be WAY (wayyy) high. Now I'm way below average on both counts and am wearing the same size clothes as I did in high school. Walking 4 miles every day helps.

I looked up "Slimming World" (the system she used in Britain) and it looks very similar to Weight Watchers here (what I used).

/Never seen the fat seats at Disneyworld. I live here in Florida and have been several times.
 
2012-08-30 02:37:01 PM
Even when it's an article about a Brit, the Daily Fail will ALWAYS manage to find a way to use it as another opportunity to take a piss all over Americans.

Always.

Sometimes they do it to balance out the ride.

// heck, one of the rides at Knots has lights that tells you which batch of seats is overweight/underweight, so you shuffle people around until it's balanced enough to not go wacky when it's spinning you through the air.

Maybe its because the article says its in Disney World, not Disney Land. The more you know.

Apparently, her nose lost weight, too.

I'm a big guy, and I've been to both Walt Disney World and Universal in Orlando many, many times.

The ride seats at Universal attractions are generally smaller than the seats at Disney attractions. I have never had an issue on any Disney attraction (including the roller coasters). At Universal, I have to use one of the few 'larger capacity' seats on their major rides (Hulk, Mummy, Dragons, etc...), and they are still rather snug.

Having never seen this or been subjected to it at Disney, I have to think something isn't right with this story. I'm betting she visited both parks, and mixed them up in the telling.

Doh! You're right. The two are completely unrelated to each other, and certainly any policies or procedures or equipment at Disney World are entirely unlike anything at Disneyland.

drkokintz: I'm betting she visited both parks, and mixed them up in the telling.



Based on in-thread testimony, that's likely. Either that, or (even though I'm pretty sure The Daily Mail's website gets 10 times as many hits from the US as it does from the UK), maybe they figured no one there knows what the hell Universal Studios is, whereas Disney World is as well known as McDonald's.
 
2012-08-30 02:55:16 PM
Too bad she's still overweight. But if she's come this far, from where she was, she can probably reach normal if she keeps at it.
