no, she`s not allowed: too fat.
Stay on the scooter fatty, otherwise it will turn into a mobile weapon of robotic destruction..."
You win, good sir!
I hope that woman keeps going to BK on her scooter, so that young children can learn from her bad example.
Stay on the scooter fatty, otherwise it will turn into a mobile weapon of robotic destruction.
She`s saving the earth by gaining more weight and stopping the terminator below her from moving. for now it can only move its lower axles to provide transport for its human master.
See i`m not negative :)
Her wheelchair can`t go up the curb. And the curb couldn`t support her weight.
Key word, some. Doesn`t work when 50% of the population in aust and america is overweight. And dont worry kate, it`s only the internet, don`t lose sleep over it babe.
Now welcome back itsallfake, I have a new debate, i refuse to think a child fetish is a disease. That means I have a disease that makes me like boobs. Nooooooooooo.
But we should just tolerate it amirite
The creepiness is just a stage act.
Stereotyping works, because its true the majority of the time. SHHUUUREEE she `could` have a disease. But she`s angry, at the camera man, little patience for slowly cooked healthier alternatives. *shakes magic 8-ball furiously* All signs point to B1tch just wants sum foooood.
I know what you`re going to say, "pedophelia is nothing like obesity" to which i will say the only difference is that being fat is harmful to yourself than to little kids. There is still an object of great desire that causes a person like this to do things they would not do under normal circumstances. This woman is SO addicted to food that the degredation of herself and the lack of respect for herself shows that those flame grilled patties mean more to her than, well, her own life. Tolerance? Feck that. I am a fatty and i have enough respect for myself and other people that i dont do this sort of thing.
lol who am i kidding. go to subway
Yes. I do it anyway.
Uhm, she stopped at the order microphone...
As for the leptin BS, she`s at BK!!!
You`re must be fat and are rationalizing he fatness, you`re trolling, or you be ignant!
BTW, did I mention that she was fat, eating at a fast food restaurant, and riding a fat person scooter in the car lane? ...fat }-)
What I don`t like though is that no matter what, shes a human and shouldn`t have to stand this kind of behaviour (getting photographed and put up on the internet in this manner (to make her look bad and make people laugh at her)). I thought you stopped being that stupid and mean in high school, when you realised that illness kan happen to anyone.
Great, because I`ve left school, college and uni. Almost all fat people are fat because they eat too much. Anyone who has another reason for being fat (glands and such) probably knows this and wont go to places like this.
She`s just lazy and fat. And it`s funny for all of us.
Sure, she`s fat. That`s her problem. The person who took these photos, then put them online is nothing but a jackass.
VampireGirl: Being silly on the internet is how I waste the bulk of my time. :D
Psych: I sort of assumed, being that you were arguing on IAB, that you were a guy. I never looked until now and just noticed that isn`t so true. My bad. Won`t happen again. :D
Psych: I try. You`re pretty cool yourself. :D
So, it`s 2AM here, I`m gone, too. Hope to see you all back here sometime tomorrow, classes are cancelled so I`ll be free for a full day.
Im off to bed... its 1am here and ive been up since 5:45am yesterday...
I wish i had your magic powers Jazzy, i`d run for office
Is no comment. :)
The natural order of the internet.
not as happy about loosing weight as i am that i am finally able to restrict my intake. something i tried and failed on my own. 15k didnt pay for a piece of plastic in my stomache by the way, it paid for 30 years of gastric surgical experience, plus 12 years of college, the experience of 5000 previous banding... you know theres only a couple K worth of plastic and metal in a car, its what goes behind it that makes it more expensive...
Never insult someone until you`ve walked a mile in their shoes. You`ll be a mile away, and have their shoes.
i could list how busy my life is, but the truth is, yeah. I tried multiple diet plans, atkins, the zone, weight watchers. Most of the problem was my activity level. Since i graduated college, my career path is pretty sedentary. Plus i was lazy. No argument there. Short of the story, i waited too long to do anything. and yes, even my family doctor who didnt even know i was researching told me it was possible i went too far. should i have done something about it? hell yes, but i didn`t. and by the time i got to the point that i had had enough with it, it was too late. My doctor wanted to put me on some medication that would "control eating habits" but like i said, im not a fan of big pharma. the fact that i was on vicodin for 6 months for my back was bad enough. and i was truly inspired by the radical change that does happen with the procedure. im not as happy about lo
There we go, now delete all my previous comments and leave this here to sum up my thickheadedness :D
Please tell me you did more than 90 minutes of exercise a week? Were you that busy in your life while you slowly put on the weight to not see what was going on? I understood you skipped all those fat loss shakes (market`d to the couch potato). But is there really a point of no return? Thinking racket ball for 30mins would be too harsh on your body (like wii syndrome) and you should`ve eased in the exercise until your body could handle the stress. But if your happy with the procedues that`s fine, just 15 grand could`ve been a car or a nice sound system QQ
eh, whats that saying about walking a mile in someones shoes?
It sounds more like you`re the troll trying to make it out that because i identified a problem and was willing to seek help when i knew i couldn`t do it myself that somehow im a bad guy? yeah... im thinking your the one trolling... bad troll
For someone who doesn`t realise that he`s slowly killing himself and can`t stop. Throw the 15k away. I love to eat as well, but yeah you need to stop at a point :`(
The flaming at this time of day is really light >.>
No Trolling here Jazzycakes. To what were you reffering?
you need to explain as im now curious as to what the f you are talking about
>>Handsomepod - my circles of friends are fine thanks :)
And whoever said they got a lap band better be trolling!!! There is a book called mindless eating, its a scary book with the thought of people dont know they are eating when they are, so they easily forget. hence why they get angry when they dont lose weight, forgot they had snacks here and there they don`t remember.
As soon as i could firmly grab my stomach flab i new it was time for me to lose weight. :D
anyway, thats my "cool story bro"
OH, and one more thing, my ruptured disk in my back no longer bothers me...
Obesity can be many cases. A disorder, genetics, high toxin level, slow metabolism, cannibalism (crazy, huh lol?), genetically "modified" foods, calories, ingredients.
There`s a lot. The best thing you can do is trim on all of it. Eat less, eat healthier (organic foods are quite low in toxic material), work out.If you want to be lazy and blame it on something though, sucks to be you.
anyway, so i decided to check on procedures.
Then i started hearing reports about people who had the bypass done becoming type 2 diabetic. Which in the documentary they said that the guy cannot process sugars the same anymore, and that seemed to match the diabetes thing. So i lookied into the band. It was the safest, and most effective. The clinic i went to was amazing. everyone except the doctor had been a banding patient before they started working at the clinic. There were so happy with their lives after that they joined the clinic... which was a little weird i thought.
This doctor had performed over 5000 bandings with 0 after surgery complications. I was sold. And today i was able to synch my belt one notch tighter without discomfort. the 15k covered not just the surgery, but all drs visits, fills and empties, support group sessions and complication proceedures should any arise for the next 2 years.
you being from western US and me only been to glendale for 1 week back in the summer i can`t really say "yeah".
Here`s my "cool story bro":When i decided to do something about my weight it was because i was the heaviest ive EVER been in my life. Last year i tried to do something, my wife and i played raquet ball for 30 minutes a day 3 days a week while trying to eat sensibly. Unfortuantely, my bad choices put me past the point of return. I was excerising my butt off and still GAINED weight.
There is a point you can get to that you simply cannot loose weight without medical intervention.I didn`t want to try any medicines, im not a fan of big pharma. So i watched a lot of Discovery Health, especially shows about surgical proceedures. One in particular really inspired me, the dude was very similar to me, had gastric bypass and the documentary was the reason i chose to get su
Your argument is actually pretty well put together, and if this was anywhere else I would be truly impressed.
Unfortunately, this is the internet. So I have to assume everything you just said is lies, unless you can provide proof of course.
fixed that for me
A "glandular" disorder that most fat people have used as an excuse doesnt exactly work in a way that would make this woman fat all over. Most glandular diseases are isolated to a particular gland site. And there is one thing consistant in glandular disorders... they have to drain them. Buddy of mine i used to work with was fat, bigger than me, 6x i believe he wore. He had a glandular disorder in his leg. His leg would get about 3 times the size of his normal one and once a year they had to drain it. Remember bob? the big moosie ed norton cried into his biatch-tits? that was protrayed as a glandular problem, and they went so far as to mention them getting drained. But they are isolated to one area, everywhere. This lady is simply fat and looking for a cheeseburger.
I`m all for kindness and spreading the love, I just don`t have the slightest problem with calling people on their faults when they choose to make the wrong decisions. Now, this is just speculation here, but I would assume you are the type to see alcoholism as a disease, while I see it as "quit being a drating pussy and just stop drinking." I quit pot, alcohol, pepsi (almost a 24 pack a day), and cigarettes (pack a day for 14 years), and poor eating habits (was 80 pounds overweight) and I quit each one by simply deciding one day to stop. Each was just as easy to quit as the last.
The difference between this Burger Queen and me, is that I said "I wont be fat" while she said "I will." (all assuming she doesn`t have some medical reason to be fat of course).
She has a drating scooter do her walking for her out of sheer laziness, and I think it is perfectly reasonable to condemn her for that.
but it made me giggle nonetheless lol
So you got that lap band that all the billboards are advertising now?
If I remember correctly, this entire discussion started because of a few cruel comments by posters on this forum. It went from me and a couple others saying, "it`s not right to ridicule and make fun of her because of her looks" to a discussion on the causes of obesity.
But I agree, we need to spread some love :)
For everyone that doesn`t, it basicly means making an argument using facts for a reason/excuse you do not know if they apply to. Therefore making the case/point irrelevant.
To sum up: Nobody knows for sure the cause of her weight and why she is at burger king, thus making the situation pointless to attack or defend. Nobody can be wrong or right unless more information can be found on her, so just be cool y`all and get some more love around!
llsn, you`re welcome.
itsallfake, well done! One of my neighbours has had the same thing done and he`s never looked better. I`ve taken to calling him "Slim" He loves it!
This is my second, yes. My first died of a constipation problem from the processed pellets he ate.
you might be a star tonight, so let that camera roll! something red white and blue! oooh the funny things you do, America, America, this is you!
Ugh it was some America`s Funniest Home videos spinoff back in the `90s..
Correction: VICIOUS cycle :)
Maybe you just don`t know the right people. You can`t generalize that ALL users are pot heads and low income earners.Just the ones you know are.
Don`t mind me, I`m not really a grammar nazi, I just found that amusing.
However, I must disagree with you on one point. while ridicule may motivate some to lose weight, it certainly doesn`t motivate all. Many people, women especially, suffer from low self esteem due to the media`s portrayal of what women "should be", and said ridicule (especially if they are morbidly obese). This sometimes (not all the time, mind you) causes them to comfort-eat, which is often in the form of fattening foods. For many people, this is a viscous cycle.
Now, is it true that if you REALLY try hard you can save up the money for surgery, and if you REALLY try hard you can get into an exercise routine? Sure! No one is saying it isn`t. However, it can be said that ridicule and the media`s impossible goal of what women can/should be are definitely contributing factors to the obesity epidemic.
I am not a bleeding heart, but I do believe that society plays a role. It`s not ALL the fault of the indiv
Look it... Making fun of these people is what motivates them to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT... enabling doesnt.
I`m obese, my BMI is 45, which is HUGE... you know what, i got tired of feeling like this and DID something about it. Instead of asking the state and taxpayers to buy me a scooter and front my medical bills, i saved my pennies and paid 15K to get banded. It`s been 4 weeks and ive already lost 30 pounds.
If you admit you have a problem, you can do something about it and there are means of restricting you when you don`t have the ability to.
4 weeks ago i weighed in at 402
last week 374 with shoes on...
Restriction works... period
Everyone i know that smokes pot is a low income earner. And they are usually on centrelink (government payments here in aust) and they all complain about pot not being legal. Then alot of my friends that went to uni and have propper jobs don`t seem to complain at all, mainly for a fact they don`t do pot.
Stop crying about your illegal hobby you can`t give up.
the argument can and has been made that MORBID obesity (not just overweight or obese, but MORBIDLY OBESE), is a disease, just like smoking and drinking can be considered diseases.
Eating food can be an addiction, and is worse than smoking or alcohol. No one is shoving cigarettes or booze down your throat, but you have to eat. If you can`t afford to eat healthy foods all the time, or if you (and this is where personal responsibility comes into play) choose to only eat junkfood, you can become addicted to it.
"Arthritis, multiple sclerosis, any number if decongenital heart-defect, etc."
Heart-defect? Surely Burger king will help her condition. Bluntly said if any of the above is her condition (you forgot obesity because its a disease now too *cough*) going through a fast food drive through isn`t going to help.
And our drivethroughs have signs that say only vehicles allowed.
Very, very well said :)
Weed has never, ever been proven to fatal to anyone, EVER!
There, thats all you`d have to do to have the buttons at the top, instead of floating at the middle. Do this with both <td> and then ill be able to rest in peace
Get fat\die because of a medical condition = Unfortunate\sad.
Not really that hard of a concept to grasp, PsychGeek and JaLacaob, not really sure how it`s going over your head so much."
Thanks for reiterating my very point, Zerocyde, and implying I don`t get it.
I promise, no more inflammatory comments from me :)
Not really dramaeco, insensitivities need pointing out. If we all went through life without a nod to the rules on social interaction we`d all be sociopaths. It`s why you teach your children not to stare and someone with a big strawberry birthmark. Manners cost nothing but can buy a hell of a lot if observerd correctly.
What I was saying the whole time is that it`s NOT OKAY to make fun and laugh at people, no matter how they look or what situation they`re in.
I`m also saying that even though people DO HAVE THE CHOICE in the types of foods they eat, there are often underlying reasons behind morbid obesity.
I agree with you that personal responsibility plays a role, I`m not trying to throw a pity party for obese persons. What I AM saying is that they need help, not ridicule.
There, now we`re clear. :)
Is that irony or just coincidence? :P
"Everyone should be coddled and treated with sorrow, pity, and sympathy for disabling and injuring themselves VOLUNTARILY."
"People should be held responsible for their actions."
As long as we are clear.
You are perfectly entitled to your opinion, I just don`t agree with it. I know you don`t agree with me.
I for one am happy we can all get together and present our views on different subjects. It`s the reason why I love this site :)
It`s just a bunch of people presenting their opinions, for better or for worse.
All I`m saying is, if you want to respond to something I`m saying, please refrain from putting down my intelligence. It just discredits you.
I have. You ignored them and repeated your old stance.
Sorry, I was busy not sitting in front of the computer all day. And btw, you don`t get to win an argument because time passes.
"and Zerocyde, I`d like to see you laugh when someone you care about dies because of their own choices.
Way to show how immature you are, good job :)"
I already presented a response to your notion about loved ones. Way to open your mouth without even fully understanding the opposition`s views.
"Don`t be so mean! You disgusting, cruel monster! It`s not his fault that he chose to choke down 500 cheeseburgers a week!"
How can someone with enough brainpower to tie their own shoes possible think that that is a valid statement? It boggles my mind.
Way to show how immature you are, good job :)
Way to join back into a conversation that died a while ago. Next time just let sleeping dogs lie :)
Nail on the drating head.
I won`t even get started on how cruel and horrible your comment is. Just wanted to point out that there are plenty of people out there who`d find her attractive.
But I will say that you could be a very physically attractive person, but if your personality is nasty, no one will want to be with you.
Not really that hard of a concept to grasp, PsychGeek and JaLacaob, not really sure how it`s going over your head so much.
Not the best idea.
El: Please tell me this restarts the "laughing at fat people" debate. That would make my day.
i found the picture funny
tinterwebs? Awesome :)
Given the context of our other discussions on here tonight, I immediately thought he was trying to goad me into another argument. My mistake :)
and spartanman, like I said: worry about yourself, and I`ll worry about what I like or don`t like. Do yourself a favor and stop trying to psychoanalyze people.
why do you care? I simply stated my opinion on what others were saying, and then I got responses. IAB is full of forum fights, and I`m certainly not in all of them.
You worry about yourself, I`ll worry about me. Ok? :) thanks.
And you have a good point in your other post. That is part of why we ridicule other people for how they are as a human species. We`re naturally a herd-species and we `want` to conform. (Even the goths and emo kids.. after all, they run in packs!)
Junior year in high school I was 6`3 and 265 pounds. That`s not as big as this woman, but I did notice that in many classes I was the biggest, both tall and wide. I`d try not to put myself in situations where many people saw me, like this woman did on a scooter at a Burger King drive-thru. I guess all I`m saying is that she needs to be prepared to take a self-esteem hit when she does this. Self-esteem isn`t there so we can get pissed at other people over it, it`s there so we can be bothered by what`s wrong and fix it.
My opinion comes from being a pharmacist and seeing people in the hospital all the time. Granted, I work inpatient-side, now, but I always have to remember that I don`t know the circumstances behind why people are in the hospital, or perhaps upset when coming to the pharmacy. We get a lot of flak, but you never know. Someone might have just been told they have cancer, or they might be in the scooter because of a disease and not bad choices. We don`t get the luxury to assume.
You are entitled to your opinion, and I`m entitled to mine. No hard feelings :)
I think everyone could do better for themselves in some way, shape, or form. Most people just don`t bother. For instance, I could be getting one of my commissions done, right now, instead of starting and egging on debates on IAB. ..but this is so much more entertaining.
You do have a good point :)
You`re a teenager who makes fun of others and tris to prove herself as a big tough girl on an internet forum.
I frankly don`t want to debate you because I have better things to do with my time now, like study for an exam I have in my Psych of Men class later this week.
I suggest you grow up a little bit, maybe in a few years you`ll realize that people actually having feelings, and that openly making fun of them just makes you look like an immature child.
Have a nice evening.
Psych, I happen to be one of those people who never feels full, and who always has the urge to snack on something. I`m also clinically depressed, and yeah, sometimes food makes me feel better about myself. I also just love food in general, lol. But you know what..? I am of "healthy" weight on the BMI scale, and all my life (with the exception of a few months where my anti-depressents made me gain weight), I`ve been called "tiny" by nearly everyone I meet. Of course, I`m fortunate enough to have most of my fat go to either my top or my bottom, and not my middle, but I`m also not fat because I realise there`s a point where you need to stop eating, otherwise you look like the Burger Queen here, lol.
no! it`s not! nice straw man argument you have going there! really PROVE to me with numbers and statements from well-respected scientific sources that what you said is true and not the result of your non-professional inference.
"I want facts and figures supporting the opposite of what I`m saying. :)"
how about instead of arguing in the way /b/ does (`PROVE ME WRONG`) you actually back up what you have to say? for someone named `psych geek` you seem to know very little about actual psychology/biology/genetics/epigenetics.
maybe she did try losing weight at some point, but no one supported her, maybe some even told her she`d never succeed. It`s called a self-fulfilling prophesy. If you don`t think you`ll succeed at something, you probably won`t. If someone convinces an obese person, through ridicule or otherwise, that they`ll never succeed in losing weight, they probably won`t.
I want facts and figures supporting the opposite of what I`m saying. :)
i get what you mean with this. i don`t feel the same way you do, but i get where you`re coming from so i suppose our opinions can meet somewhere halfway.
i want facts and figures supporting this statement.
it`s no excuse for making fun of others and putting them down, just because they don`t conform to society`s standards of what`s normal or attractive. for your information, it`s the nasty comments like the ones i`ve seen on here that help perpetuate obesity. Instead of helping these people and encouraging them to lose weight, we cut them down and make fun of them.
It`s really quite sad..
tvremote: I support that. I don`t have any sympathy towards people who do it to themselves. But until I know that, I don`t think it`s funny.
you had a post (or, actually, i think it might have been two posts) that addressed two different topics and i answered them accordingly.
Oh come on! Can we please as a society stop holding peoples hands and tell them they can do whatever they want because its not their fault. "oh its just my genes" or "oh I have a medical condition, it`s not my fault" I hate that mentality so much. Own up to yourself. I`m not that physically fit, I could work out more and be healthier. But I don`t, that`s my choice and I`ll never say I don`t work out because I have lazyness syndrome or some similar bullsh*t.
However, after I brought it up, it was you who felt the need to defend yourself for laughing at her, ignoring all the reasons that had been posted.
Mine was only a comment that I stand on the side of compassion when I don`t know the full story.
May I please see this proof?
Also: Okay, then in the case that obesity is genetic, it isn`t getting better by eating unhealthfully and not making the effort to better one`s self. It`s saddening as well, because this woman could be living a very healthy and happy lifestyle, and instead she`s sitting in a scooter going through the drive-thru of a fattening fast food restaurant chain. This gives us a mere glimpse at her life, yes, but it isn`t one that convinces us that she`s trying to better herself.
It`s known that junkfood like Burger King releases endorphins, and is a comfort food for many people. Maybe she has depression, and eating this food makes her feel better? Or maybe she has a chemical imbalance in her brain that does not allow her to feel full (conditions like this DO exist).
It`s not all about choice, per se. Granted, some people do choose to eat only bad foods. But there are always reasons behind it besides "it tastes good".
i NEVER disagreed with you on that! ever! my point is that i have a MASSIVE (no pun intended) problem with the morbidly obese who are that way because of their own doing. and yeah, i`m making an assumption because she IS morbidly obese, she can`t walk, and she`s at a burger joint. there could be a million reasons for this. but let`s face it, that is without a doubt the most common reason people like her are in that situation.
Actually, Vindictive, I completely agree with you. I have a problem with people who don`t take care of themselves and then rely on the government and doctors to `fix` them when things start going wrong.
The POINT here, is we don`t know WHAT is causing this woman`s problems. It might be that she hasn`t taken care of herself, or it might be something outside of her control.
way to put words in my mouth. blatant hostility, which i have dealt with, and the constant judgment of others are completely separate things. you`re judging me right now. it doesn`t bother me. because your opinion doesn`t matter in the slightest.
anyway, it`s a moot point. you and i will never meet and therefore, i have nothing to prove to you.
I would love to see people openly make fun of you, and see how you react. You act all tough on here and say you wouldn`t care, that you do as you please. But if you sit here and say that others` hostility toward you wouldn`t phase you even the least little bit, you`re lying.
YES BECAUSE EVERY CASE OF OBESITY IS CAUSED BY A LEGITIMATE GENETIC PROBLEM.
no, that`s not it. wait, are the MAJORITY of cases of obesity caused by legitimate genetic problems?
no, they`re not. they`re a result of lifestyle. i`m human and i will judge other humans based on their choices JUST as they will judge me. why do we have to be so touchy-feely? people probably see me all the time and go "what a freak/idiot/whatever". i don`t care because i do what i damn well please.
I am mature enough to not make fun of others. I see women like the one featured on this link and I feel sorry for her, because a*s-wipes like you probably laugh and point at her all the time. She more than likely has self-esteem issues.
Like other people have said, you have no idea if she was getting food for herself or someone else, and you have NO CLUE if her eating habits caused her obesity---or haven`t you ever heard that MEDICAL ISSUES can also cause obesity?
Before you judge me, try growing up a bit yourself. Seems to me like you`re one of those types to pass off all obese people as being food shovelers, and you don`t care about any underlying medical conditions they might have. You need to do some research on the causes of obesity--it`s not all about an inability to control what and how much you eat.
bulimics don`t purge in public. anorexics don`t demand extra space on airplanes and public transportation. this women is AT BURGER KING. i`ll laugh at her all i want.
"Let`s see you saying the same thing when you become obese due to poor eating choices"
I`m not lazy\stupid enough to let that happen? OHH WHY IS THIS BURGER RUSHING TOWARDS MY MOUTH?!? WHATS HAPPENING?!?! You really think that`s how it drating works?
"--or maybe when someone you care about dies at an early age from obesity, due to poor choices. Will you be laughing then?"
I wont be laughing when a loved one dies, but if they killed themselves it`s their drating fault.
"To make fun of someone purely because of their lifestyle is asinine, cruel, and immature."
No, to make fun of someone purely because of their lifestyle is perfectly drating reasonable.
What the drat is wrong with you? Have you ever heard of willpower or self control? Holy drat, how do you get dressed in the morning? How do you even roll out of bed without being pushed by someone? Holy drat, grow up.
My original point still stands. We don`t know what`s going on, here. It`s not right to do this to anyone.
Some people really need to grow up and stop projecting their own insecurities and self-image issues onto others.
Maybe she`s buying a coffee. Maybe she`s picking up food for someone else. You just don`t know, and therefore shouldn`t laugh.
That said I`ve only ever seen obese people on scooters. *shrug*
I would have expected such a hurtful comment from a 15-year-old...but not from someone who`s old enough to know better. Way to look like an uncaring teenager, StarDagger.
Let`s see you saying the same thing when you become obese due to poor eating choices--or maybe when someone you care about dies at an early age from obesity, due to poor choices. Will you be laughing then?
To make fun of someone purely because of their lifestyle is asinine, cruel, and immature.
Majority of the time? Fat, lazy smokers.. yes, smokers. I see the stupid oxygen tanks on the back of those things all the time. Those people just made stupid choices and deserve something like this. Those who suffer from poor circumstance, don`t.
My wife has arthritis in her ankle that has nothing to do with her weight, and would use one of these no matter how big or little she was. Not everyone is using them because they are fat.
You know.. if she /could/ walk, and get in a car to do a drive through, she probably would have. Not everyone overweight like that can help that fact. I think it`s pretty messed up to not only take the photos, but get caught doing it.
I feel bad for people caught in circumstance like that. It`s like taking photos of someone as their house burns down and laughing at them.
