The end is near folks! Only the sheep don't realize that all the signs are pointing to our impending Zombie Apocalypse!

The more of this stuff we do, the greater your chances of being eaten.

a social network called MyMicrobes? Are we sure this isnt an early April Fools joke article?

Mummy poop thread!

Considering what the fat farks already do now to avoid diet and exercise, nothing would surprise me.

TFA says we could also use monkey poop bacteria. They're probably more aerodynamic too.

But you can now take part in the study for less than 1000 Euros! Bargain, huh?

Wouldn't it be something if fat people got thin and started living hundred of years like people were supposed to have done in the Bible?

Proflorics as a medical concept goes back at least to the 50s. We thought we'd be able to culture the stuff easily by now, though.

Zombie plagues are caused by an atypical airborne cryptococcal meningitis that produces parasitic questing behavior. Hasn't been a significant outbreak in North America or Europe since the end of the last major period of glaciation. Perhaps we're due -- lots of permafrost is warming up again, after all.

i don't see why it wouldn't work

That's nice, yet another excuse for fatties to use to try to justify how they have become such fat asses. Metabolism, hormones and now antibiotics and tap water.

And yet no one can shake the doughnuts out of their grubby hands.

Not sure about this Farked article...

Although I know I can help unsatisfied good looking women by inserting penis in their love hole. It has an excellent success rate

I hate fat comedians who have to joke about how fat they are. They're worse than prop comics. At least Carrot Top builds shiat.

Not a surprise that as our diets have changed that the indigenous microflora have also changed. It's not necessarily "all" because of anitbiotics.

And don't forget the parasites. Carry around a fark-ton of helminths in your gut and see how much weight you can keep on.

"But" on a related note, there has been a study or two that suggest that having some helminths in your gut might help keep you from getting Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's.

Cured? Obesity isn't a disease. Hypothyroidism, now THAT is a disease. The cure is to remove or destroy the thyroid, causing obesity which is not a disease. Remedied would be a better word, although obesity is merely a reflection of the well being of our country. Skinny, stomach bloated, fly encrusted, boil covered people everywhere....not such a successful country. We should be happy that there are fat people, it means we are still doing OK.

Anything that goes into my belly will be digested.

Good luck little buggers.
 
2012-03-31 10:31:57 AM  
I understand it can also be cured by having intercourse with a dead dog near a school, but more research needs to be done..

Let me just fix that now before I get biology 101 lessons from a bunch of farkwads.

Subby sounds fat,
from where I am standing, the answer to that question sounds smegging hilarious.
But then I play rugby so I don't have to start doing sad and pathetic things like watching what I eat (or eating mummy shiate).

/exercise, how does it work
 
2012-03-31 10:56:01 AM  
I just lost my appetite

/so there's that

I hope this doesn't work. If fatties start getting thin, I'll have to find a new way to feel smugly superior to my fellow human beings.

wambu: I understand it can also be cured by having intercourse with a dead dog near a school, but more research needs to be done..


That happened here a few years ago. The dog had been dead for quite a while when our man started feeling romantic. He didn't even move it from the roadside, just dropped his pants and went to work right there.

And it was right outside an elementary school.

King Tut's stomach bacteria might hold the cure for obesity.

That word, what it means, etc.
 
2012-03-31 11:57:03 AM  
It will almost assuredly cure obesity. And every other weight problem you might have.
 
2012-03-31 12:02:55 PM  
Yeah, that sounds like a real good idea

So it's King Tut's curse merged with Montezuma's revenge?

Americans, let's face it: We've been a spoiled country for a long time.
Do you know what the number one health risk in America is?
Obesity. Obesity! They say we're in the middle of an obesity EPIDEMIC.
An epidemic like it is polio. Like we'll be telling our grand kids about it one day.
The Great Obesity Epidemic of 2004.

Our food full of antibiotics causing problems? Say it ain't so.
 
2012-03-31 1:14:28 PM  
Well, I would say some researchers have very... interesting fetishes that they explore. I would have hated to have been on the committee that had to review their grant.

Hard cheese.

The problem is ancient Egyptians and other Africans put antibiotics in their beer. They probably ingested far more over-prescribed antibiotics than modern Americans do.

Hard, hard cheese. Guess you'll just have to move more and eat less.
