My brain hurts from reading it...
Now THIS is the sort of funeral the Phelps family inbreeds should picket!
"God hates stupid fat people!"
Oh, the irony!
oh the reposts!!
Be patient. I'm sure you'll get another chance soon enough.

because today I pushed a 400# human in a wheelchair up a 12' high 80' long ramp by myself...and I wasn't breathing hard. I call it the fat guy workout.
florida, you've got competition from m-i-crooked-letter-crooked-letter-i-crooked-letter-crooked-letter-i-humpback-humpback-i
My guess is that he is trying to become relatively svelt. #P90XFail
new state motto "we're fat, may as well go for broke"
So Republicans are now in favor of large government over local government?
they're in favor of whatever happens to suit their agenda on any given day, contradictions be damned.
and in mississippi, they're in favor of flavors

"bountiful"? that's a stretch
"self fulfilling prophecy"
or "self filling prophecy"
i thought fat people only lived in red states and all the blue states were inhabited by fitness models?
Was just struck by something:
Imagine if we bought our car insurance like we did our health insurance? Purchased through work, heavily subsidized, and the rate was the same for everyone on the plan regardless of personal driving history. Your rate never changed, no matter how many accidents you got, speeding tickets you received, or cars you totaled. If you were in an accident you'd pay a small deductible ($20) and everything else would be covered, and your rate (compared to your coworkers) wouldn't change.
I'm betting there'd be a whole lot more accidents and rates would be skyrocketing.....
I wasn't just struck by this bigger factor:
Oh I'm totally for holding people accountable for lifestyle CHOICES that adversly affect their health........you're free to do whatever you want to your body, but not free from the consequences.
You can write a lemon car off. You can't write off people. Or you shouldn't be able to, anyways.
Market analogies are crappy with healthcare. Almost like it's a market failure or something, but just like Jesus, the market never fails. It's really mystifying, but the Lord does work in mysterious ways.
Why is it that pretty much every time you say something, I want to give you a hug?
That's a logical outlook at face value but it gets complicated fast.
Using that logic, 'high risk' activities like skiing, cycling, climbing, motos etc should be penalized along with smoking/drinking and obesity.
Just because it occurs during exercise doesn't make a reconstructed knee any less of a handout than a Rascal. I write this as a person whose medical care has been used nearly 100% to remedy sports related injury.
I see what you did there, and while I think you make a good point, I wonder how the numbers shake out. I.E., what's the average "sports injury" cost versus cost of care for the common ailments of "diabetic fatty smoker"? How many times does IAB get to blow out his knee before we have to put him down?
It would also be interesting to see how 'healthy' lifestyles effect lifetime heath care costs.
General illness/accidents (flu, car accidents, falls, random acts of cancer) are probably uniform regardless of lifestyle.
A fatty may cost more to operate daily, but will kick it at 50.
A health nut may be cheaper day-to-day, but with most costs accumulated at 'end of life', maybe they are ultimately more expensive as systems will gradually fail during their longer lifespan.
Regardless of real costs though, obese people are disgusting and must be shown no quarter by society.
I don't think the guy's hit 40 and we're at #2.
Given his enjoyment of east coast ice skiing, and the fact he's apparently made of glass, odds are he'll be back on the table at some point.
you'd think they'd show a fat assed samoan trying to squeeze into a seat....
Best way to do it. To say its discriminatory would be like saying restaurants discriminate against fat people because they have larger stomaches to fill. The reality is every passenger should pay for what they "eat" in aviation fuel just as they already do in their personal cars. We have the technology to quickly and easily implement a fairer fare system.
i got on an elevator & felt discriminated, judged, and ugly

didn't tony montana say that too?
