    On the news this morning- UK based doctors are not allowed to use the word obesity to patients anymore. They have to call them bloaters. Or, something like that.

    I find that a simple smile and a "who ate all the pies then fatty?" as the patient walks through the door gets the message across without upsetting anyone.

    Tact costs nothing:D.

    I don't see why we need an alternative word for obese? As time goes by the word obese seems to be changing meaning anyway. Now adays it seems to almost represent an idiopathic disease.

    I only ever hear obese people saying that they eat next to nothing and I always take people at their word. That being correct we have a situation where the energy output is greater than the energy input. If we can identify the gene, implant it in the starving millions, problem solved.

    obesity, by the same token, tiny input of food energy large accumulation of spare energy seems to me to be the first appearance of what might be classified as a homeopathic disease.

    keep back it's mine, you heard it here first.OBESITY IS THE FIRST RECOGNISED HOMEOPATHIC DISEASE, ie the smaller the intake of food the greater the accumulation of fat.

    Apart from that, energy imput 1 unit output 2 units, the planets saved. Forget wind farms, nuclear power station, etc. The answer to global warming is in front of you.

    Obvious i'n'it!

    "It's not my fault, it's my glands".

    Yep, all of those glands in your stomach, Arbuckle.

    I think it was Alexei Sayle who first asked the question: "why do fat people sweat a lot, then look at you as if its your fault?"


    Still, I'm a big fan of Omelette.

    OK! OK! Enough of the downside of obesity what about the upside?

    House breakins, muggings, violent crime, in fact almost all crime shows an inverse relationship to bodyweight. The most effective way to reduce crime is to eat more.

    The more obese the nation the less the need for the maintenance of public spaces, sports fields, sports centres etc. Just concrete them over and call them car parks or build fast food outlets on them. Think of the reduction in taxes, etc..

    That old saying re- maintaining good health of the lower limbs is undoubtedly absolutely true. 'Never run if you can walk. Never walk if you can stand. Never stand if you can sit. Never sit if you can lie down'. Four hundred pounds and above therefore represents the pinnacle of success.

    So come on give us some more of the good news of 'Big is bloatiful'.

    Distinguishing body mass and activity level from the lower limb: can entheses diagnose obesity?

    Apparently the most effective method for assessing the previous fat index of a skeleton is known in the trade as the'skid distance'.

    As fat begins to degrade it appears to melt and runs off the body. The more fat the further it runs.
    As forensic examiners approach the body they start to slip in the molten fat and the distance from the body at which they start to slip and slide is known as the 'skid distance'.

    Not a lot of people knows that and the rest don't want to know it.
