Disabled by obesity? In Canada, you can have two seats for single fare.

Guys, Guys. Obesity is a disease. Just like Alcoholism. It's not their fault.

Obesity is a disease. It tragically forces people to eat 4 double whopper bacon cheeseburgers in one sitting. It's horrible. It also takes away their ability to get up off there double whopper size hind end to take a walk every now and then which might have helped them work off some of those cheeseburgers.

For the last time people... poor eating habits and no exercise make you FAT.

Why do people keep telling me I need sensitivity training?

Before you knock Canada, consider that they have brought us Rush and Mike Myers but also Celine Dion.

The Great One, but also Pam Anderson...


Keep in Mind that obesity is not as common in the other countries than in the USA.... I mean face it, America is very slobby and fat. I'd say allot fatter than Canada.....

So when they allow a fat Canadian to have two seats, the chances that it will really be a problem is pretty slim...

However, that kind of precendece set in the Slobby Fat USA would have serious impact. Hoards and Heards of fat slobby AYCE Americans stampeding from the Old Country Buffet/McD/KFC/ as they gorge up before enduring the 'fasting' of air travel and limited portions of airport food just so they can get a free phat seat...

So slam the Knucks and their one or few fat people.... we got plenty more in the land of the free.....

Jesus.....They "deserve".....?....

Those fat crap sacks should get what they "deserve", which is a cross country flight in a single seat, sweating and huffing and squirming with their fat rolls melting over the seat and their ankle fat spilling out over their orthopedic shoes.....

Let me guess, it isn't their fault, right?....I don't care what your family tree looks like, if you don't want to be obese you won't be....You might have to work a little harder at it than others....No one is "doomed"
into a fat life......

It just start to ping off the scale when I see one of the herd coming down the terminal, knowing they did that to themselves and know the rest of us have to bear the burden for so many lazy choices.....


I mean it just starts with a few simple lifestyle changes, no one is asking you to be a professional athlete......

I also feel the exact same way about smokers.

I feel the same way about arrogance and ignorance... you don't have to be that way! Read a book! Think! Quit being stupid and shallow....


This thread is funny... chiding a few fat Canadians when we, the Americans, are the fattest slobs....

I'd rather be fat that stuck with minds like yours...

Pass the salt and suet please.....

Rez, are you siding and sympathizing with the people who have destroyed themselves physically and are now getting special treatment for it and expecting the rest of us to make special accommodations (Americans)...?......

My little post was actually geared more towards Americans not Canadians.....

This thread further proves my theory that every situation in life is somehow referenced by either a Simpsons or Seinfeld episode or Far Side Cartoon.

http://www.tv.com/the-simpsons/king-size-homer/episode/1420/summary.html

In this episode, Homer finds out that he can get disability for being obese. He buys an instructional video to help, and it tells him "instead of using bread to make a sandwich, use pop-tarts...Instead of chewing gum, chew bacon."

I'd make a law that if you need 2 seats, you get denied boarding and forced to walk to wherever your destination is. Might want to make sure you can swim before you go.

You know they could get around the 2 seat thing if fat people got an automatic upgrade to first class. The wide seat and extra legroom would be perfect. Plus, only one seat is used. All they have to do is push the non-revs, high mileage flyers, and business person to the back. They are probably thinner and could ride in that tiny coach seat. I doubt they would have a problem downgrading their seat and pitching in a a few bucks for fatty to upgrade.

480-Pound Woman Dies After Six Years On Couch

Wednesday, August 11, 2004
STUART, Fla. -- A 480-pound Martin County woman has died after emergency workers tried to remove her from the couch where she had remained for about six years.

Gayle Laverne Grinds, 40, died Wednesday, after a failed six-hour effort to dislodge her from the couch in her home. Workers say the home was filthy, and Grinds was too large to get up from the couch to even use the bathroom.

Everyone going inside the home had to wear protective gear. The stench was so powerful they had to blast in fresh air.

A preliminary autopsy on the the four-foot, ten-inch woman lists the cause of death as "morbid obesity." But officials want to know more about the circumstances inside the home.

Investigators say Grinds lived with a man named Herman Thomas, who says he tried to take care of her the best he could. He has told them he tried repeatedly to get her up, but simply couldn't. No charges have been filed, but officials are looking into negligence issues.

Emergency workers had to remove some sliding glass doors and lift the couch, with Grinds still on it, to a trailer behind a pickup truck. Removing her from the couch would be too painful, since her body was grafted to the fabric. After years of staying put, her skin had literally become one with the sofa and had to be surgically removed.

She died at Martin Memorial Hospital South, still attached to the couch.

Neighbors say they had no idea Grinds lived at the duplex, though they had seen Thomas and some children outside.

Comrade Rez, I am glad you have expanded your listening horizons to include the Great Maharushi. Since you are a new devotee to his deliciousness, I must share with you that he is in fact hails from the Show Me state, Missouri.

Anyhoo, I applaud your willingness to consider other, non-doctrinaire viewpoints, in your effort to understand your lesser subjects in "Real Amerika."

With Love,

I know this is going to sound really lame but...

It wasn't an instructional video, it was good old Doctor Nick Riviera, you know, the guy who graduated from Hollywood Upstairs Medical College. Doctor Hibbert was disgusted and appalled that Homer would ask for his help in gaining weight to become Obese, but cheerfully recommended Doctor Nick.


Yes, I have no life.

Not the Show Me State, A Show of Hands...

More proof of the idiots on this thread....

And I think you should have two seats! That way you can bring your razor thin oh so hot girlfriend and everyone can be jealous and envious about how wonderful you are... and the fat people can hang their heads shamefully in your judgement. That is if the fat rolls around their neck will even physically allow thier heads to hang! Know what I mean brother!

Why not get a big 'F' stamp and stamp fat peoples foreheads as you move about your judgemental life. We can line then up in the 'corral' that is a jet.... as you walk down the aisle you can smack fatty's in the forehead. Branding them for life..... just in case it wasn't sure if someone fit your fatfolio...

Next, let's round them up... get all the fat people, including thrice divorce Rush Fatso Limbaugh! Let's intern them in camps! With big flat screen TV's and troughs we can keep these filthy pigs occupied and eliminate this stain on our beautiful society....


Fat people are making our society weak! What is the final solution!!!???

Thanks for being thin and beautiful! Its people like you that really make this world a great place to live!

Reminds me of the indignation of the gravitationally enhanced passenger going to Fresno when she saw FAT on her boarding pass.
