First off, why does the "new and improved" version always end up sucking worse than ever? I HATE the new blogger interface. When will it just be good enough? Why can't we just get used to something and keep it how it is?? I'm pretty sure I've gotten a decent nap in the time it took to get from entry to here, and, to be honest, I'm not sure the muse is lurking about anymore...In the words of Jimmy Buffett, "I don't want 8 ounces of watered down cherry coke for an extra 25 cents! I don't want that much organization in my life! I want...Junior Mints!! Where did Junior Mints go in the movies?! We need more fruitcakes! Less bakers! We need people who care!!"
Never mind that it's "fewer," Jimmy, not "less," this isn't an English lesson; I just get god danged tired of always having to learn new systems when the old one is almost always easier! I'm with you...keep it simple, stupid...
Went out to get my monthly debaucherous pizza from the local pizza joint a little bit ago and on my way in there was this huge lady, easily 300 lbs, and her sadistically-large son, tipping the scales at...oh, somewhere near my weight, let's say, 200+. I don't think he was 12 yet. That's child abuse in my opinion. Why can't we call it what it is?? People like her are dooming their children to sub-standard lives. And they had no choice in the matter. Why is that OK? Are we afraid of these people? I mean, it's not like they could catch us if we needed to run from them. Twenty yards and out, baby. Fuggedabout-it. Fatties aren't built for speed OR endurance.
Anyway, these two bohemoths were all of about 4 feet behind me on the way in, and I did the unthinkable. I dropped the door right on top of them. All I could think was, burn the 2.5 calories to open it yourself, chunky monkey. It's high time we stopped coddling your fat asses. I don't know if you know this or not, but global energy peak has come and gone, and every calorie you eat that you don't need is a calorie someone else doesn't get. We're overpopulated even without your excess, you lard-asses.
I understand that our food is 50% less mineral dense than it was 50 years ago, because of the way we are abusing our topsoil, and that making up for that loss of mineral density causes us to eat twice as much as we used to, but there are alternatives! Lots of folks are still thin out there. And it's not because they were "blessed" with better genes than you got. It's because they actively seek better food than you're eating. One of the hallmarks of "organic" is mineral density. Start there. Grow your own, buy your own, but do it organically. It's cheaper than eating McDonald's. Stop being lazy. Look into the matter. You're not a victim. Your brain isn't working properly because of your shitty diet. But that doesn't mean it has to stay that way, that it can't change. The planet can't afford your non-chalance anymore. The planet's people can't feed themselves on your table scraps.
Find another way. Jesus. Can we please stop accomodating these folks? Obesity isn't a handicap. You need to park at the very back of the grocery store lot, not the very front. Walk a little, ride a bike, dump the bun on your burger, do something. Just stop expecting everyone else to pick up the tab for your ridiculous behavior.
Rant off. Tripp out.
