mOOSH - still a hippy dumass with the capacity to have sympathy for other human beings.

PS to Neuski - Nice Shawshank reference ;)

Mamoosh's avatar And that proves that you have not understood one single word I've posted in this thread. Not once have I ever said it was OK to be overweight. Not one of the websites I referenced said it was OK to be overweight.

But...if you cannot understand the simple concept of having sympathy for those who are stuggling with something very powerful then I feel really sorry for you.

yeah your absolutely right, but my sarcasm wasnt toward you in particular, moosh. i hope this little debate hasnt effected anything. i still have respect for you and i enjoy your humor and insight on this forum! i guess this topic kinda sparked a huge interest in me because i was a fat little kid.

now back to the topic, ive shared my opinion, which many people who are healthy would agree upon. start getting healthy people! dont do it for others, do it for yourselves and you will live a better life!

What is your idea of healthy.....As I stated earlier I am indeed fat...but annual checkups with my doctor don't bring about any problems. Moreover, I am more athletic than a majority of the people I know. So despite being fat....I am actually healthy. I know that may be hard for you to digest....

Sorry about getting a little off topic there.....
I've made my point numerous times. The main problem is MF and the fact that CP/Intamin don't inform the general public that someone who fits on every other coaster in the world may not fit.

Another issue is on the whole restraint system, but I am not knowledgeable enough to comment on that.

thats why parks usually have an example of a seat outside the Q

Mike my point is....why would someone try a test seat if they have never not fit in a coaster before.

Seeing a test seat makes one thing "Oh that is for huge asses"

The employee at the gate did not ask me to sit in the seat and none of the people that I were with(who had all been to CP before....I had not) thought that I should try it.

Did you do that on purpose?

If so....

I go to a bar.....every bar in the world makes a drink a certain way....2 parts of X and one part Y. I like this drink...So I order it at this bar...This bar makes the same drink 2 parts X and 2 parts Y....Is it fair for them to not tell me that there drink is different?

No, it brought attention to you because you're ignorant and foolish. Most overweight people aren't addicted to food? Where did you pull that one from? That's as ridiculous as saying that most smokers aren't addicted to cigarettes.

In one of your first posts you stated that overweight people digust you, and now you're claiming yourself to have been a fat little kid. I guess if I were playing by your rules, your shape would have disgusted me when you were a child but instead I'm disgusted by the person you have proven yourself to be.

Rob, while I can agree with your statments that Mike S. is insensitive ect.

It is actually true that the worse your diet is, The more food you crave.

Eating a very big meal will make you feel hungry faster than eating many small meals.

I find I eat much less and get fuller quicker when I eat 4-5 times a day instead of two in which I feel litterally starving by the time I actually eat. Take in a few calories, get content and burn the calories. Eating huge meals only makes your body store the calories and carbs you cannot burn.

Well mike, let's look at something you thought was a fact.

mike.s. said:
a fine point that was brought up was that our country is the only one with a weight problem. it is not like its some disease that is only isolated in america and cannot travel else where.

Do you honestly think that's true? Do you know what the facts are?

While the U.S. might be the first country to see such a large increase in obesity, we are definately NOT the only country that is 'growing'.

Every year countries in Europe are seeing ever increasing rates of obesity among their populations. There are even some countries that have higher rates of obesity among males than the U.S.

As for your comment that their is a lack of intellect on this board. I say it sounds like a self fulfilling prophesy on your part.

p.s. - I guess you're not a fan of sumo, are you? Are you disgusted watching NFL games? Those O-linemen sure are huge!

The irony...

Look at the food offerings at your standard amusement park (not that I don't eat the stuff)! An argument can be made that they directly contribute to the obesity that makes it so their paying customers cannot utilize their primary product. Not that I would expect a park to look at anything but profit potential when it comes to food...but...would it hurt to offer a few healthy choices (Kudos to Disney for the fresh fruit thing)?

It still amazes me that we are having this debate. I cannot imagine that CP or any park really wants to piss off ANY segment. I've ignored most the MF posts as I've not gone or intended to go to CP the past couple years. Why don't they just put larger belts on the train? Is there some physics law I'm missing? Is this a major expense? Bring me up to speed please...

...just ran three miles and swam a quarter after my nice salad supper! :-(

another needless quote removed. -J

yeah the reason why people are dealing with obesity in their european countries is the increase of our american fast food chains over there. so i guess your right. basically the u.s. has an obesity issue out of the world's population. if you disagree then i might introduce you to a friend of mine: google.com. *** Edited 7/28/2006 2:22:55 PM UTC by Jeff***

yet another needless quote removed. if you have to quote, trim it to the relevant parts. -J

alright im going to behave and put it nicely: you are sadly confused with my point. being a large kid drove me to become a healthier person. so i do know first hand what it is like to be over weight. that is my point. whats wrong with not liking yourself when you are a kid? this is a common occurance. so i did something about it and i can say now, im as fit as i can be. *** Edited 7/28/2006 2:23:55 PM UTC by Jeff***

oh and comparing a person's addiction of food to a narcotic or alcohol, is foolish. so lets just drop that because you know nothing of what you are talking about. if someone is addicted to food, eat something healthy, dont chow down on a greasy burger. eat something that will benefit your health and will satisfy your "addiction." its easy. anyone who thinks it is difficult, has given up on their self. *** Edited 7/28/2006 5:14:57 AM UTC by mike.s.*** *** Edited 7/28/2006 5:17:22 AM UTC by mike.s.***
