Did you read the link I posted concrening increasing obesity? Are
not "Full sized" Americans part of the population? Do you wonder why
I posted it in context of complaints of insufficient room in cars?
Fat people are fat because they eat too much and don't get off their asses
enough. That Is It. There is *NO* other explanation.
Fat people's favorite dumb-isms:
"I have a slow metabolism"
"I really don't eat *that* much"
"I have a glandular disorder"
"McDonald's made me this way, so I have sue them"
"I have acid reflux"
Sorry. You are fat because you like to stuff your stomach LITERALLY to
overflowing with metabolizable substances. The "acid reflux" is that 32oz
bag of Doritos you ate before bed, when everyone else was already asleep
and couldn't see you doing it.
Stop gorging, nibbling and snacking--and get off your ass once in a while--
and you won't be fat any more. Fast food has nothing to do with it.
Yeah, I know. You will deny all the foregoing because you can't face the
fact that you are weak-willed AND a glutton.
Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! It's not our fault. I heard some guy say on a radio
commercial for a weight-loss product that it's because of some protein
in our bodies or some other chemical thing I'm clueless about that lets
me (munch) assign blame elsewhere. You (chomp) want us to believe
(slurp) a commercial would lie to us? Urp. ;)
I'd still say 50%. Almost all of those "driveway pickups" are smaller
ones like Tacomas. Buying a huge half ton truck is usually something
you do for a reason.(I'm not counting the people who lower and put
the rims and such on these things - they're just plain odd)
Not in this neck of the woods. Lots of F150's and the chevy model also
a ton of big heavy Dodges. I even see a one ton'er once in a while,
they never haul anything in them except trash or hook up the travel
tailer to go up to the lake.
Up here in Toronto, people buy them for the aggressive statement that they
make. You see these beautiful waxed shiny F150s and 2500s puttering around
town with the tailgates up (carrying nothing), while their baseball-capped
owners blast Em-enema or whatever other obnoxious garbage they can get their
hands on through the big stereos they put into them. It really makes no
sense either, because they suck ass on snow, handle like slugs, and roll
when they drift off the road because of the high centre of gravity. Lots of
SUVs too. :P
Thank God that cube vans aren't fashionable, or the serial killers would be
able to freely drive among us.
