    * West Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas have highest adult obesity rates - over 35%

    Hey Florida is at #36, but it's pretty alarming, at 27.4%, that means about one out of three people is obese. Damn.

    Dang. when you go in and look at the charts for the individual states, the average in 1990 is basically 12% and now its basically 30%. That's madness.

    I've lived abroad the last several years, and since moving back (and every time visiting) that's gotta be the biggest reverse culture shock thing ever. Just walking through Walmart feels like a freak show after living in Asia.. :X

    Fatsses should be killed, but we need them around for comic relief.

    Walmart is always a freak show, on many levels. Visit this site of candid pics of these Trump lovers:

    BTW, we recently went to a Walmart, over my objections, because he heard their garden store had some of the hard-to-find herb plants he wants. OK, we went, he got them, and I bought nothing myself from those homophobic Waltons.

    But before we left our place I told him we had to look ordinary and presentable. Otherwise we might end up in this People of Walmart site. I really did!

    So he shaved and tried to get rid of his everyday scruffy look. I don't think we've been featured on that site yet.
