Any way, I don't care for tabloid discussions, so I'm putting this on ignore.

See you on the other threads.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

The individuals who knowingly and deliberately stuff themselves to the point where they are unable to move without aid and develope all sorts of other maladies because of gluttony, are to be pitied (all the foregoing obviously excludes genuine health conditions/diseases for which obesity is an end-product) but they are tying up care-givers and health workers who could be aiding patients without self-induced deterioration.
Is there an answer? Doubt it, it appears to be unsolvable. Education is what is supposed to spark an upward turn on the graph, and also appears to be failing.
Oh I absolutely agree, her health problems both now and in the future (evidently she has health problems now as she has teh motorised bike thingy) will impact upon many people. I feel sorry for her but she must have some kind of psychological issue, as she is killing herself as sure as smokers or alcoholics.
Totally goospoint about education aswell!

I've heard of digging your grave with a fork, and this qualifies as such, for sure.

Be an organ donor; give your heart to Jesus.
Exercise daily; walk with the Lord.
