    No we need TV to tell us we're too fat. But TV is the one that tells us to eat. Its the only one we listen to anymore.

    I always thought a mirror was completely adequate to tell someone that they are fat. :eek: :rolleyes:

    Shit, if your fat and you don't know it...:rolleyes:

    What we really need is for people to eat better and excercise more and stop super-sizing it.

    Then we'll be fine.

    I thought it was the husbands job to tell his wife that dress makes her look fat. Then it was his job to shower her with gifts and sleep on the sofa for the next month for being so stupid.

    People just need to keep their fat asses out of mcdonalds and start excersizing. People are far too sedentary, and eat too much.

    There's NO EXCUSE for being fat... other than you can't stop shoving food in your cake hole.

    'over-heard on a talk show I'd never admit watching':


    "I know you WANT to lose weight...but are you WILLING to lose weight?"

    Gastric Bypass...Atkins...Wieght Watchers....the Stop-Eating-So-Damn-Much-Diet...all require 'sacrifices'. Today's generation knows little of that word; obsessed with self-gratification. "If you aren't 'happy', divorce your spouse!". "Why should I be MORE worried about 'the greater good'? It's all about ME, baby!".


    Hedonism is king.
