British systems of measurement are almost as arbitrary and ridiculous as their tabloids.

'He walked right up to me, turned round and said, 'Look at the state of you. You're disgusting,' and threw his drink at me.

Ummm... what?  So she's saying she was just standing there, minding her own business and some random stranger just picks her out of a crowd and dumps his drink on her?  I'm glad that she lost all of that weight and now feels much better about herself, but... that story?  Not saying shenanigans, but....

One stone = 14 pounds

One pound = 18 gramts

What could be easier?

How many stone are in an furlong?
 
2014-02-09 12:08:35 PM  
So "stone", what is that in Earth measurements?

/can't talk shiat, we in the US still don't even use the metric system

Wait, European or Eddie?

Maybe she was eyeing him up like he was a candy bar.

Drug dealers do.  That's why the government hates them.

Why was she carrying around all those rocks?

I don't know, the fact that it happened doesn't surprise me, the fact that she wants to meet the guy because he goaded her into losing weight strikes me as odd.

People say rude things to fat people all the time.

Yesterday I was in the local natural foods co-op buying some things.  (not to be hipster, but because they've got an excellent selection of bulk herbs and spices.)  The cashier says to the fat white woman in line in front of me "don't take this the wrong way, but from the side I thought you were Honey Boo Boo's mom."

First off, anytime you start a sentence with "don't take this the wrong way" maybe it shouldn't be said because it most likely will.  I have to wonder how the cashier would have reacted if she were told "don't take this the wrong way, but you look just like the maid on the Jefferson's".

Cue thatsracist.jpg.  But what is the difference?

Oh yea, the fat lady can go on a diet and lose weight so that makes it better?  Still totally uncalled for.
 
2014-02-09 12:43:23 PM  
this drink throwing douchebag must be pretty hot for her to want to shake his hand.
something tells me he still wouldn't want to touch you with a ten foot pole though.
 
2014-02-09 01:04:08 PM  

mrswood: shake his hand.


= British slang for "boot him in the nards"
 
2014-02-09 01:06:56 PM  
I'm still trying to work out how much a gill is.

It's 2/3rds a peckinstance.

Ah! Much different than the midwestern slang for "give hand job"
 
2014-02-09 01:15:45 PM  
Now I don't know whether I want a hand job or not.

It's time to try again. Those opposed to the metric system are dying out. Let's do this.

Besides, they don't even know that they are already using it. My mom says she's too old for the metric system... then asks me to pick up a 2 liter coke and a bottle of 81mg aspirin.

I guess I should ask her if I should be picking up 1/128 of a hogshead Cokes and 1 1/4 grain aspirins.
 
2014-02-09 01:17:54 PM  
While I don't agree with fat shaming, I can see it being useful in certain situations.  Such as, motivating my lazy kid to get off his ass and GO OUTDOORS UNLESS YOU WANNA END UP LIKE FAT EDDIE ON DIABEETUS MEDS!  DO YOU WANT THAT, KID!?!?  DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE CALLED A FATTY AND BE ON PILLS!??!?!?

...

Sorry.  That, uh, kind of got away from me, there....

Sh*t or get off the pot, and I mean that literally.  At least, in this context.

Commie measurement system is a trick to make us pay more for bacon.
 
2014-02-09 01:22:15 PM  
It's just a friendly hand shake.

So, does this mean I am doing fat women a favor when I walk up to them and say how the mere sight of their flabby smelly gross sub-human blobby melty gooey flesh makes me want to projectile vomit? That's probably not the best message to take away from this.

I passed a stone once.  It felt like it was 14 pounds.
 
2014-02-09 01:38:52 PM  
She's close to exploding back up at any time.

You should start with kids. Telling an 8 year old how disgusting they are will put then on a good path for a healthy adult life.
 
2014-02-09 01:40:35 PM  
I wonder if the man's prison sentence for bullying is finished yet.

On the other hand, anyone who tells an eight year old that it's "fine" and "normal" to be morbidly obese should be criminally charged.
 
2014-02-09 01:46:19 PM  
So just remember to insult the overweight and obese, because you just might change their life.
 
2014-02-09 01:46:34 PM  
34 posts and nobody brought up their glandular condition that causes them to be fat even though they eat one pack of saltine crackers a day?

Fark, I am disappoint.

Well they're obviously not going to change it on their own. Sometimes tough love is the best love.

That is the best message to take from this.

By the time I realised that my weight was going up, it was too late. By then I was a size 26

Riiiight. I too have magical clothes that stretch along with me when I gain 80 kgs or something. And I would never notice becoming short on breath from stuff like walking or tying my shoes.

Imperial furlong or metric furlong?
 
2014-02-09 01:50:57 PM  
If someone said that to me, I would probably hurt myself.

But that's OK because I'm fat and should just remove myself frrom the planet anyway, amirite?

I agree.  People can and will say rude things to other people all the time.  Yup.  Uncalled for.

But honestly, the guy just walked up to her unprovoked and dumped a drink on her?  I raise an eyebrow to that.

I wonder why some people feel the need to make compqrisons like that, or why they think you would be flattered to bear a resemblance to a celebrity.
