What are the red spots? Red Dye #5?

I'm looking, but I don't see it.  I mean, I saw a lot of text on a website.  I even saw an animated gif of a replica of what an equivalent of a pound of human body fat would look like.  God I hate being blind.  Not only do I miss out on seeing the things that subby sees, I also never truly know when I'm done wiping after I take a crap.

Signs you're reading FARK while tired:

I clicked the link, totally forgot what I was doing while waiting for it to load, didn't read any of the text, scrolled down to look at the photos, and thought to myself, "why am I looking at this piece of pineapple?" Then I scrolled up, and was like, "oh yeah, the body fat... ewwww."
 
2014-02-08 01:16:52 AM  
If only there was something near it to give it scale.
 
2014-02-08 01:17:11 AM  
A pound of flesh? No more, no less?
 
2014-02-08 01:17:44 AM  
Hey guess what?

Pretty much anything you pull from the inside of a body and display on the outside, is pretty gross looking.


From anything other than a biological/evolutionary viewpoint anyway.
 
2014-02-08 01:20:42 AM  
I remember over a decade ago Oprah waving about a simulated pound of bodyfat to demonstrate what a pound represented. One pound of fat plus water.
 
2014-02-08 01:21:31 AM  
Oh my God, we're... organisms?! Dear God, our fat is nearly as gross as cow fat.

S'OK.  It looks yummy.  Deep fried with a batter coating and it's my next breakfast.

As far as the blind thing, well, it would be worse being dickless.  Pushing your useless pelvis against various women would be constantly humiliating.  "You ain't got no dick!"  Yeah, how many times have we all heard that?  Right guys?

I remember my buddy in HS.  He was blind.  We'd wander through the halls.  I'd "accidentally" push him into some nice body and he would get into some major grope action - and the girl would apologize to him.  Lord, I was jealous.  Whenever I did that routine, the girl would beat the crap out of me.  I was small and could only mo;est their kneecaps.  Good times though.

Now, my friend is serving time.  He became a priest and someone accidentally pushed into a small boy.  Well, one thing led to another, a little defrocking, a little parental anger, and so there he is.  Behind bars.  Having other prisoners being pushed into him.

The moral is: don't become blind.  It leads to a prison term.

2014-02-08 03:13:36 AM  
Um... OK?

It looks basically like the fat from anything that hasn't been bled.

Am I... supposed to be impressed for some reason?  Nothing really special there, beyond the stupidity of making a jiggly plastic model of something the butcher can give you for free.  I mean, you'd get kind of an odd look for just randomly wanting trimmings without explanation, but whatever.

// Like many weird-looking jiggly things inside your body, you would quite literally die without excess fat deposits, by the way.  So there's not even the connotation of it being something bad from a body.  Dip below 22% (female) or 15% (male) fat by weight and you start having issues, get below 10%/3% and you literally start to die.  That's a lot more than one pound.

I turn a wrench as a contractor at a local Unillever production facility that recieves beef tallow by railcar.
It works as an excellent cutting fluid at lower speeds when drilling or cutting. It was used quite often according to the old machinist/millwright books I like to collect. Whenever I work there I make a point to fill a jar up to keep on my truck. At this point I have never used human fat tissue as cutting fluid but I will keep y'all abreast of that situation if it changes. My theory is that it should work well and smell better than TapMagic.

I see so many jokes where people proclaim their wives/girlfriends/mothers-in-law to be fat, old & unattractive. It makes me feel lucky that my girlfriend is still young & has a great, tight body.

And the best thing is that, the media finally seem to have stopped paying so much attention to her disappearance.

Thank you. I'm sick of fat-vs-skinny threads in which clueless Farkers throw out observations like "A woman with 14% body fat is fit. Anything over that and she gets squishy."
