    Drag the burger to one side of the restaurant; its cholesterol level will be halved.

    OH... MY... GOD!
    As if one of those Burger King patties wasn't bad enough, why would anyone want 7 of them???
    Besides, do they think people can unhinge their jaws like sharks?

    The possibilities are endless when you live in a country without anti-fat fascists.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I'm assuming then that you've never been to Texas?

    EDIT:

    >> The possibilities are endless when you live in a country without anti-fat fascists.

    My point exactly. Actually, Austin is a bit of a paradox in that respect. There, the steak-houses have bike-racks so that the diners can resume their normal health-conscious activities after the fact.

    Even we Texans avoid a 7-patty monstrosity like the plague. That thing is the epitomy of heart attack.

    Haha yeah Austin is funny. Probably the most "green" focused city I have ever lived in...and I could honestly care less about "green". Do you live in Austin, too, Sebastiani?

    I was born and raised in Houston, but have also lived in both Dallas and Austin (most recently). I moved to North Carolina almost a year ago (weird place, btw), but I'll be moving back to Austin around February or so (yay), when my contract is up. I'm looking forward to it.

    Austin is a pretty cool city, though. Besides being an overall hip place, there's always fun stuff to do and plenty of natural beauty (and more importantly, great food!). It's definitely a quirky place, though. My first day in town I got stuck on a one-lane road behind this guy riding what appeared to be an oversized tricycle, with a sign on the back reading "Stop The War!!!" or such. I just kept honking my horn, all the while thinking "WTF?! This guy's got a lot of nerve riding on the roadway!", and in response he would just calmly reach up and squeeze a little bulb-type "clown" horn. The exchange was actually quite comical, really. Anyway, later, of course, I learned that bikes (and trikes, I guess) are allowed in the rightmost lane of most roads! Funny thing is, after that I wound up behind that guy numerous times. Except, by then I had grown so accustomed to bikes on the road that it was just like "Oh hey, there's that crazy war-protesting tricyclist!". The oddity kind of grows on you, after a while.

    If you thought it ended there, they're even catering to really desperate anime freaks.

    Thin may be in, but Fat is where it's at.

    H1N1 will prove me right. All you scrawny bastards will be dead after a week of puking your guts out, me, I'll just lose 10 pounds.

    Heheh.

    But seriously, if anything, fat reserves probably create more opportunies for infection/illness than otherwise. Ultimately though, overall health is a much more important consideration than weight. I'd choose fat and vigorous over skinny and weak any day.

    You are wrong, fat reserves have been shown to be directly related to recovery speed. Overweight people get sick less often, and less severely, and recover faster. An Overweight worker misses fewer work days due to communicable diseases (e.g. common cold, flu) than a 'Standard' worker. These workers also take less time to recover and return to work.

    Either way, there's a reason why you don't see fat people in the Olympics.
