    I'm not even American, but I do know that America smells like hamburger. Perhaps this will interest you. A fat girl I know said she went to Cleveland and felt like a supermodel. I once went to a Jays game and knew right away I was sitting in the Indians' section, for there were row upon row of obese families.

    Here are Men's Fitness magazine's official 2004 rankings:

    i remember going to sea world in San Antonio and there being more whales walking around than in the tanks.

    i'm surprised about Miami being up there though

    I'm surprised that anywhere hot is on the list.

    being outside.

    that's just wrong that miami and some of the other warm spots are up there when no city from Wisconsin or Wyoming is on there. I can understand the cold places...but fuck...what's the excuse when the weather is gorgeous out 24/7?

    I can't think of a good reason.
    Maybe they get so used to the good weather they
    become oblivious to it and sit home all day eating munchos.

    that's strange... I heard about this list a while ago but the cities were different.
    New Orleans had just bumped Philly from the top spot.
    Philly Cream Cheese, Philly Steaks.... fat fat FAT!


    you know what I'd like to hear.... if any canadian cities would even crack the top 50.

    maybe because it gets too hot, they sit in the AC all day and don't go outside.

    arlington...not even ranked...right to the top 10. :lol: definitely power moves.

    I'm sure staying indoors with the AC on is probably a big part of it. But, fuck...go to the swimming pool or hit the lake or something. at least its still comfortable in the mornings in those places. When its cold out...there is no comfortably warm time during the day. lazy fucks.

    Dont believe those lists!
    For example how does a city (Fort Worth) go from 16th place to 6th place in one year? Does this mean maybe 50,000 people lost weight? Could be. Doubtful though.
    Also how are they even getting these rankings? Some kind of poll I suppose. They call 1000 random people in various bigger cities and ask for their height and weight, perhaps. That isn't necessarily an accurate indication of the entire population, hence, the radical variation in poll positions. I remember a couple years ago in an exact same poll (maybe by a different source) St. Louis was #1. Where is St. Louis on this poll? Also, I remember Kansas City being #2 in some poll.
    This can only give you a slight indication of obesity. Actual numbers and percentages would interest me, not this.

    hey everyone, stop beliving those scientific studies, 'swiss cheese' says its not true, based on....on......well, it just cant be true! cancell all the 'we're so fucking fat its sickening' (sit down) tele-parades, and go eat some carrots or something.

    you don't have to weigh everyperson in this city to know that yes, fools need phen-phen.
