vernonFL: Persnickety: "Diabetes affects one in every six adults in the South American country"

I guess those sneaky Mexicans are jumping their border to the south now to illegally emigrate to South America.

Well, "South America" is defined as everything south of America.  America being the USA, of course!


Da fuq happened to Central America? Did it follow Pluto someplace? Anywho I was really shocked at how close the ranking percentages actually are.

WTH, they're not Daleks.


México has got places like Teotihuacán.  They're used to steep steps.  I suggest holding them off with they're not prepared for, like attack yetis.

Primum: I've recently watched several Cartel execution videos with 2-5 victims each, where the victims are on their knees, and the executioners are standing behind with long knives, axes, and machetes ready. What crossed my mind (in addition to the extreme horror) was how chubby many of these people were. Some of the female victims were topless, too, and they had those fat-girl titties. I thought, fat people aren't that scary! And then a guy stuck a knife into the kneeling dude's neck, and I almost vomited.


Reason I won't go back to Mexico anytime soon is because of the cartels. When I was about 13 one relative in Reynosa was the care taker for one of their private clubs. We went with him to work one day,and it was awesome. Two pools, and all the latest arcade games in the game room for free. They weren't as murdery and scary back then. They had the police a lot more on the take. I know. One of my relatives was a cop there, and we all knew he was getting money from them. He's passed on since then. The escalation in violence started with the crackdown on the cartels after the PRI lost power. My second cousin illegally immigrated here from Monterrey about 3 years ago. He was a dentist there, and his son and daughter were kidnapped for ransom by one of the cartels. He paid and they sent his daughter back, but never sent his son. No one knows what happened to his son, but assumes the worst.

It's really not just the cheese. I've been eating pizza my whole life, along with other foods, obviously. But, I've had my huge share of pizza. I rarely go to fast food restaurants or Mexican restaurants. Fast food, because they're nasty and Mexican because they are just so greasy. I have always had a good weight. Sometimes too slim, sometimes a little too much (but never overweight). To reiterate, the amount of pizza I have eaten is astounding. ... Cheese (not the processed crap) is not the only culprit. Or I'm a lucky person and should be huge.

I want to Mexico and ate "real" Mexican food at a locals restaurant over a decade ago. It didn't look like your "traditional Mexican meal".

It looked like your "tex-mex" without cheese and smaller portion. It was also unlike tex-mex cause it was bland.
