Mini-obesity rant (#5)

posted by saurabh in Obesity |

En route to Canada, stopped at a Super 8 Motel. I’m not sure what’s “8″ about it, much as I remain mystified what’s so “6″ about Motel 6. But there it is. While waiting outside for my dad to check in, I watched a young boy, maybe twelve, already tending towards chubbiness. His dad crossed the parking lot bearing two sodas. Coca-cola, half-liter cups. The kid snatched one from him greedily, fastened his lips on the straw, remora-like. “No!” I screamed to him. “You’re swallowing poison! It’ll only make your budding man-breasts larger!” But only in my head.

P.S. Am I a fat-bigot? Do fat people have a right to be fat that I’m bound to respect, like smokers have a right to smoke?

    Take into account that it just takes two $200 inside the money
    trades a day nets you $300 in profit each day. Options have been part
    of the markets for centuries, but the theories of
    fair value are, relatively speaking, still in their infancy.
    Binary options also enable a quick gain: it takes no more than 60
    seconds to reach a profit of 85%. So always go for those services that provide customer assistance.

    Typically this type of investment is the kind of money that people need in order for companies to make changes and shift the tide
    of health fads. At the end of this article I am recommending a
    great article on the best options platform, make sure to check it
    out.
