While the correlation between obese people and those scooters is an obvious sign of a sad western culture, you are really generalizing here. Do you realize that some people become obese because they are disabled?
When you are stuck in a chair all day, I'm pretty sure it's hard to manage calories down to a "maintenance" amount.
Oh wow, you have the cure for obesity, people just need to eat less, now quickly inform the Doctors, nutritionists, health experts, who have worked for decades trying to help people, this revelation could cure the massive epidemic of obesity running rampant in the world today.
This is a bait thread, has to be .... and I fell for it, damn!
Yes , of course - BAIT ! That's what it's all about. Look up ' BAIT ' and find out how it's used. Ravenous creatures take BAIT , my friend !
BTW ' doctors , nutritionists , and health ' experts ' are whores. Well...for the most part.
You aren't funny.
I confess, I think the OP has too much cellulose over his judgment to see how ignorant this posting is.
If it were as simple as the OP says, no one would be fat.
There are many, many contributors to weight gain. Genetics, additives to food, contributing health problems, self control.
Cheap food is usually packed with crap to increase your size. (Hard to resist the government when your too over-weight to have the stamina to protest). But making minimum wage, paying rent, and utilities leaves people unable to afford "whole" food, let alone the knowledge to prepare a decent meal with said raw ingredients.
You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make them drink. And I'm sorry, even a Presidential Executive Order will not get the horse to drink either.
I'm sorry, for you, to be so blinded by your disgust for over-weight people, it has turned you into an ugly person.
To judge all fat people as lazy, etc is like judging any group based off of a single person's actions. Your reaction is knee-jerk, arrogant and ugly.
So, with that premiss, your actions make us all sound spiteful.
