    Link: Fattest Man in the World - 1,000 pound man has decided to get gastric bypass. Probably a good idea.

    It`s pictures like this that make fat people (like me) not feel so bad about how fat they are.

    It`s just adding to the epidemic.

    Thats off. Didn`t actually realise that was his gut hanging between his legs. I doubt even his mum could be proud of that.

    I like the commentary at the bottom:

    `He weighs 550 kilograms or 1,212 pounds. He hopes to go to Italy for an operation. What kind of plane can carry this guy? It will have to be one of those planes that the army uses to transport tanks.

    And he`s in Mexico. I thought everyone there was poor and starving. He must have eaten a couple of his fellow countrymen.`

    Here`s the worlds fattest list:

    Jeez, you got to be dedicated to your food to get that big. Wouldn`t he realize that he was getting a bit big around 800 pounds? But 1,200+? wow.

    Dear god, how is it even possible to get like that? You`d think at some point food would have to be DELIVERED to you.

    ... I wonder if he ate his food deliverers too?

    "What kind of plane can carry this guy?"
    ...is this person stupid or that a joke? A 747 can easily carry 400+ people. Unless each person weighs less than 3 pounds, I think that it could handle him.
    Also, why was this jack`s blog linked instead of the actual story? oO

    That`s horrible about his condition. I was watching the discovery channel about a man that weighed almost 800lbs, but he ended up passing away shortly after the documentary.

    And about the plane, aren`t there regulations about passengers? I watch a lot of the show called Airline (yes, for some reason I`m addicted to those types of programs and documentaries) and for people that are overweight according to their airline`s standards, they have to purchase an extra seat in order for them to sit comfortably as well as the other passengers. He`ll definitely need something extra as far as planes go that will accommodate him, so I`m almost doubting a regular commercial airline would be able to fly him to Italy. I`m not 100% sure though, but more than likely he will need something other than a regular commercial flight. Just for his own safety and comfort.

    Just wanted to add that I definitely agree with SarahColleen. For someone to be that morbidly obese, it isn`t all about food. He has to have some type of condition that made him have massive weight gain.

    You know, this is just another sad example of our country here in the states. Just think, it`s our tax money that`s supplying this mans food. I`m sure he gets disabilty, here in america you can collect money for being fat. And surely his family are the enablers. How else would he get food or get his check cashed? Someone else has to do it for him.

    lolakitty72, dont blame it on psychological dysfunction that drives his obsessive eating because if had anyone around him that really cared they would have told/made him stop. These people do it to themselves, he was probably depressed that he was fat and kept eating, thats normally the diagnosis for these cases.

    "Noone is considering that maybe he had a condition that made him gain a LOT of weight, I`m sure its not all food."

    Food = Fat.

    You can have a genetic or psychological problem, but if you have people around you, it comes to nothing. Your argument is moot.

    Problems only cause some extent of fatness. It`s up to the individual whether they take it byu the horns, or become lazy.

    Fat people = Lazy.

    I know the disease you are speaking of - I can`t for the life of me remember the name of it, though.

    It`s all about control. If you find you gain weight at x speed, you can still control how fat you get. A few pounds this way or that I can understand, but when you`re dealing with hundreds - or even thousands in some of these people`s cases, it`s ludicrous. People can`t blame solely the disease on their misfortune. They are also to blame for not monitoring and controling their approach to dieting.

    He wouldn`t fit through the doors on a 747, that`s the issue. There also wouldn`t be anywhere for him to sit even if he somehow got through the doors. Cargo planes have those large openings that you drive trucks into I think is the point.

    you can have a disease that makes you think that your stomach`s empty all of the time, so they are always hungry. Some will eat anything they can get their hands on (plants etc). Cant remember what its called though.

    the disease is Thyroid Disease, there are actually a few different types. I have a few members in my family that have HypoThryroidism and it basically slows down your metabolism, but there are so many drugs out there to help that problem. If my dad didn`t take medicine for it, he would gain weight eating almost nothing. Then I have some other members of my family have HyperThyroidism where they can eat whatever the hell they want and NEVER EVER gain weight, I hate them for it.

    My neighbours have a friend who has some disease that makes him gain weight whether he eats anything or not. I feel bad for the people who try and don`t get anything, but the people who just keep eating and don`t try to lose weight for the sake of their health (and I guess vanity, too) I don`t feel sorry for. They have a choice.

    seems like the biggest cause of death for fat people is rapidly losing weight!!

    btw Why do many overweight people seem to have a diet of pizza and soda?? A diet is not less pizza, less soda. It`s regular food, and water.

    hmm, thats why theres so many people like this mexican guy, nobody admits their just a lazy over eating bum that needs life and needs to start eating normally. There are people with glandular problems, but to get to that size because of a medical reason... its so uncommon, you`ve more chance of winning the lottery, twice. There shouldnt be thousands of people like that guy

    "Does he just sit in a kiddie pool and have his mom hose him off after?"

    more than likely!

    I admit I`m a lardass, but damnit, he should`ve done something.
    I believe that there are about 10% of fat people at most who can claim to have a medical condition that makes them that big, look up Prader willi syndrome. But the rest, myself included, eat to much of the wrong food, and don`t get enough exercise. That`s it. I`m a fattie because I eat too much, no other reason. Noones fault but my own, and I`m doing something about it. But for other fat people out there, get off your damn butts, andclose your mouth sometimes.

    I remember reading about a girl who felt hungry all the time and got heaps fat, I can`t remember what the disease was called, but the girl would pick the skin off of her own arms and eat it.

    A guy I know is pretty fat (nothing like this) and apparently he has a condition where if he doesn`t eat heaps, then he`ll just sleep all the time, but he doesn`t excersize, he`s keeps getting bigger and bigger for as long as I`ve known him.

    So medical can be an issue, but I guess you can compensate by controlled eating/excersize.

    This guy is 10 of me.

    Does anyone else have the urge to go for a run right now?

    Saw a documenary about him on bbc. Apparently he only started gaining pounds when he moved to the US for a couple of years to study or work or whatever, and he himself claims that it was the pooty american food that made em so fat. I personally believe that, since watching supersize me. And in other aspect of life i think america is poo aswell, because half of the population is retarded. I dont mean this in a bad way, but its true. Thats why they are gonna conduct the surgery over in Italy, since american doctors are unwilling to do anything for free. Anyways, continue ur poo life over on the other side of the big pond. Hope u all bash ur own heads in, goodbye

    I almost wish your comments were worth my time. You`re cute, in a naive sort of way. Some day you`ll grow up, and you`ll look back at this and want to kick yourself. By the way, I`m not at IAB.

    Yes, I am not here through I-Am-Bored, though. It`s certainly not 12,000 posts here. There are many other forums that I post in.
    You can keep trying, but you will never ruffle me. I deal with your kind all day long.

    3 things which proove to me ur a fat looserish bitch:

    1) You pay for a service like this on the web, and post regularly.

    2) You continuosly reply to all kinds of forums and post

    3) Ur aged 30 to 39 and do this...

    Now either its your job, or im prooved right.

    u Deal with my kind all day long. This has lead me to conclude that u either sleep in front of ur computer, and are a sad looser, or ur a nerdish prostitute looking currently unemployed...

    Goodbye america
