Just when you thought Americans Couldn't get any fatter
Report: Fat Americans getting even fatter.
"The average man with a BMI of 40 in Sturm's study was 5-foot-10 and 300 pounds, while the average woman was 5-foot-4 and 250 pounds." Unbelievable. This is one of those stories that just makes you shake your head and mutter under your breath. Disgusting slobs. Gluttonous, lazy lard asses. Repulsive to both look at and, Thor forbid, smell. You don't want them to sit next to you on a plane and you sure as hell don't want them getting on an elevator with you. Yes, Virginia - put me down in the anti-fat ass camp. I have an idea - once you get to say, 200 pounds overweight, you forfeit your health insurance to an uninsured child. That will help offset the burden they put on health care costs while simultaneously giving someone who deserves it some medical care. You know, for problems they didn't cause themselves. (Note: I am for a single payer plan, but this would be a good stop gap measure in the meantime.)
