For once I will disagree with the nay-sayers.

Some people are up in arms because they discovered government funded a $1.5 million study to find out why more than 3/4 of lesbians are fat. Now some of you might feel this is a waste of money, especially in these dire times, but I do not. I am seriously interested in finding out why known fish eaters get chubby. Did we get told a lie about a diet that involved more fish than meat being healthy? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Actually, this study might be useful if they can pin down a genetic/hormonal/social contributor to obesity.

    But they eat all that tuna and clam!

    WOW!
    You people who live by the grant must stick together I suppose but just WOW!

    Isn’t there a fear of dislocation when you reach that far?

    How is it a ‘reach’? Surely the more we know about obesity the more likely we’ll be able to tackle it, on an individual and societal level.
    (Notwithstanding that fat people are generally really easy to tackle)

    If you are really studying obesity why limit it to lesbians? Whats next? We will do a study on religion by focusing only on one legged banana eaters? This study is as much about obesity as drinking at frat parties is about studying the effects of alcohol on driving.

    You’ve GOT to be kidding right? Hal has already explained it. If there are genetic/hormonal/social contributors, that’s something that would be extremely useful to know.

    And yet you ask why I think you dishonest…

    Here’s yet another chance to support your accusation. How on earth am I being dishonest? WTF are you even talking about?

    Hal brought up an important internet rule the other day. “Don’t feed the trolls”

    Excellent suggestion Hal.

    Of course with them commandeering post like the one from today this sites probably has a short future anyway.

    You’ve got to be shitting me. Everyone knows the problem. Everything these days is built around the idea people should sit on their ass. Desk jobs for work, and TV and video games for entertainment, you name it. Kids don’t go out and play football in the street anymore like when we were kids. And exercise, it consists of doing curls with Taco Bell burritos. Hell you don’t even have to get out of the fucking car anymore to get your slop. Genetic my ass.

    There’s a two step program to solve all this.

    Step 1) Put down the fork
    Step 2) Get off your ass

    Do those two things for a few months and problem solved.

    Some day I might even try it out for myself.

    Section8,
    your suggestions might work for people eating at Long John Silver’s but what about the folks eating at the “Y”?

    Here’s a thought: just because someone doesn’t agree with everything you believe to be true, that doesn’t necessarily make them a troll, or a liar, or whatever you’ll dream up next to avoid the substance of the discussion. There’s nothing easier than calling someone names on the internet.

    Did you get Alex to write that sentence?
    Here are a couple of suggestions:
    (a) stop whining
    (b) take a short break from making constant mindless unsupported accusations and trying to turn everything personal and instead try concentrating on supporting your argument/narrative/local scout troop.

    Actually I’ve stated before how I feel about your negative impact on this site. And I realize my sentence structure is poor and my grammar is deplorable so I’ll quote from an orator that saw first hand, and named it for what is was, the damage that insidious shit weasels such as yourself do to places like here.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” – Cicero, 42 B.C.

    Yes, I know, the accusations are never-ending.

    I’m committing Right-Thinking.com treason? You’re afraid my engaging in discussion in a moderate way might have some effect on extreme positions? Are the extreme position THAT vulnerable? Presumbly Hal is the King Of All Traitors then?
    I think you give me far too much credit MY. And no, my reason for being here isn’t to destroy it at all. I don’t see what I would gain from that. I would only lose because I’d have to find somewhere else (like I did when MW forums disappeared).

    Me:

    How is it a ‘reach’? Surely the more we know about obesity the more likely we’ll be able to tackle it, on an individual and societal level.

    You:

    And yet you ask why I think you dishonest…

    That’s just mind-boggling. How on earth do you conclude that my response is ‘dishonest’ in any way shape or form? Exactly who do you think I “really” am?

    I hear marriage makes people fat too. If so we’re about to see massive increase in obesity here, as lesbians will very soon be able to get married.
