What do you guys think?
There were always overweight people. Always, it wasn't much different 30 or 300 years ago.
People should stop seeing a conspiracy behind everything.
Besides, tell me: If "TPTB" (who just don't exist) want people to be overweight, then why do they focus only on the USA? Why always only the USA
and not other countries? I mean, the non-existent "TPTB" should, if those stupid conspiracies are true, for example try to promote the bad american
fast food chains in countries like greece. But nothing, and McDonalds & Co. are basically big flops in countries like Greece or generall southern
PLEASE learn that the USA aren't the capital or center of the world or the only or most important country. Because it is not, even if some stupid
americans want to believe that.
Next thing: Why do always video games get thrown into the conspiracy? Video Games are #ing 50 years old by now. They aren't anything new and besides,
what did happen in the last 10-15 years? Right: music and other rhythm games got popular. Games where you basically step on a stupid mat to play the
game. It's like aerobic.
Think about the Wii-Mote and all the "act like crazy in front of the TV".
If the non-existant TPTB want to make people fat, they would try to get the video game scene back to "sit on your ass with a normal gamepad" and try
everything that the dance mats and wii-motes and kinect of today aren't sold.
Same in movies and shows, i've just watched a episode from the Simpsons were Homer got a Bypass because his heart gave up because of his weight. Even
in those shows you get warned that overweight is not good.
Nobody promotes fatness, if anything, most mainstream media outlets promote the "be as thin as possible" and "fit for fun"-Look.
Today you are considered overweight when you have a normal weight and don't look like you were just liberated from Auschwitz.
There are overweight people just as their are people with bulimia who are so thin they can die any second because of it.
Please people, just think before writing bull#
