I don’t know why they’d be so sensitive to that Dukey, but they are. I detach myself from all other Saffers that comment on this site, they cannot see the humour.
I can relate to that ‘zebra’ chic. I didn’t know coyotes and road runners were real until I visited Arizona, thought the good ole people of Warner Bros invented them. Wile E Coyote was my childhood hero
#1 I had a guy that loved me (I didn’t return the same feelings) that carved my name into his arm… *finds fetal position*
#2 see below rant
#3 haha…the overused penis and cum joke. grow up, LB.
As an overweight American,it saddens me to see all the people that have a weight problem and still think they can wear the same bathing outfits as ones with a healthy BMI. Hell, I’ve seen morbidly obese manatee “omg wtf is that” women that wear short shorts and too-small shirts that shows the midriff. Some take a step further and wear that, with words like “Cutie” “Sexy” No…we’re not. We need to raise awareness that weight problems are not hot!! If you want to wear bathing suit garments, get one of those one pieces with a skirt or something to cover as much as possible.(I forgot the actual term/ name for these, but I have one) Not sure if that’s available for men though.He should have worn a shirt.
@Comments, don’t you mean cumbination* and cumbo* ?
@Saffer I know what you mean about Wile E. My heart went out to him so much every episode, he tried SO hard to get some fast food. I suppose that’s why his character looked as if he had an eating disorder, had memory loss, and always fell victim to his own trickery and ACME purchased products.
I think my state/ friend must be silly then, for not calling them muumuus. When I asked a store clerk if they had tankinis, she didn’t correct me. She just pointed out where they were located.
@Soup, I’m afraid I couldn’t oblige you, as I am currently booked up with current appointments to smuggle Ho Hos and Twinkies out of factories. I’ll contact you via a cream signal beam into the sky when I’m freed up some.
Hmm…I already said quite a bit ^ there.. Mind you, only speaking for the US, as that’s all I /can/ really speak about without getting facts wrong about another country.
I’ll give it a shot.
Some schools have taken out vending machines with junk food and sodas, and either replaced them with water and healthy ones, or just taken out period. I believe all schools should practice this to help lessen the chance for children and teens to become obese. Some fast food places here, have taken away the option of any size but junior/ small sized desserts. Perfect example, Mcdonald’s now only has the junior sized McFlurry as an option. I am happy to see these gradual changes be made, because it shows that the government is listening to /some/ of the peoples worries. They are also considering requiring more Phys Ed time.
That’s all for now. =3 I don’t mean to sound prudish ^ but, after hitting puberty, my hormones caused weight gain and depression. Coming from an old fashioned Southern family who wants to stuff faces as one of the ways to show love, I’ve developed a lot of desire to advocate against that sort of thing. Not because of looks, because of health and happiness.
While I do believe it is good that awareness has been raised, and that the schools and fast food places who have started doing that stuff have good intentions, I don’t believe we should completely take away a person’s right to choose. In this day and age, people don’t really want to be healthy, and if they did, they would make healthier choices, and there would be no need to remove the unhealthy foods from the picture.
At my old high school, they did exactly what you said. They took out the vending machines, replacing them with healthier ones, changed most of the cafeteria food, and it is now forbidden to even enter the building with a soda that isn’t of the diet variety. I just don’t think that’s fair to take away peoples’ freedoms to decide what they eat. It is /their/ bodies, after all.
But like I said, I’m sure they have good intentions, they’re just going about it all wrong. On cigarettes and alcohol, they put warning labels. They don’t just stop selling the stuff.
I’m just participating in the debate. I have no intention of sounding hostile. I am opening my mind, and would like to have an intelligent and civilized discussion today. I don’t really feel like ranting and raving until everyone on the page hates me.
I am not particularly a fan of cigarettes and alcohol either. They can really destroy people.
I said ‘hi’ to you because I know your position on this issue from a thread a few months ago… it’s just ironic to me that I am on the exact opposite end. I don’t overly like over weight people but I respected your thoughts.
Paul’s size has hardly rated a mention. If that was a Paula instead of a Paul, the Lamebookers would be all over it. As a general rule, obese men in society don’t experience the same level of ridicule as obese women. It’s unfair, and makes no sense to me…
I know e x a c t l y why you said “hi” to me. It makes me sad that you don’t like overweight people. They can be such kind, good-hearted people, and are undeserving of the discrimination they are constantly faced with. But I am glad that you respected my opinion.
You are absolutely right. Have you ever seen Star Trek? Those shows had a great deal of relatively overweight people, but were any of them women? I’m pretty sure Starfleet has a great big sign on the front door that says “No fat chicks” or something. My point is, they barely even let overweight women in the media. Fat guys can at least get on TV.
mass, I deal with the morbidly obese on a daily basis. We had to turn away a patient the other day as he was clearly too heavy for our table. The weight limit is 220kg (485lb). He would have literally broken it. It’s a brand new machine. Putting a fat bastard on the table is not covered in the warranty.
I value all my clothing, and I kind of need it. Sorry, I can’t give it to you.
Yes. It’s sad, but that’s just the way life has become now. Society has dictated that “overweight is not attractive,” and try as I might, there’s not a damn thing I can do about it.
thequeen, no, we do not have a super-sized fat bastard table to put him on. He needs to lose weight. A lot of weight. Then he can come back and be scanned. Maybe some other practice can cater for his size, but we can’t. I think 220kg is a pretty generous limit.
For once, I agree. He really does need to lose weight, if he wants to have a long life. Being a little overweight can be harmless, and the only consequences are cosmetic, but being that large puts a huge strain on your heart and other systems. I hope he sees that. By your own hand is a terrible way to die. And yes, 220kg is an extremely generous limit. I just didn’t realize tables had limits.
I zoned out for awhile as I’m sleep deprived…this debate has turned rather funny and talker-esque. I like.
I agree with you queen, they shouldn’t completely take away someone’s choices. Although when you mentioned the warning labels on alcohol and cigarettes, I envisioned them being put on fast food as well. But I also saw that it would not be taken nearly as seriously, and laughed at.
“Surgeon generals warning: High consumption of fast food can cause heart attack, diabetes, stroke, high cholesterol, death”
Besides, fast food is addicting. I want to know what the hell they put in it to make it that way… I stopped eating it for months and was so proud. Now I’m eating a few times a week and before that, almost every day. Gradual cut backs.
Subway..I want to know how to quit you again.
o.O Well, @thequeen we did talk of food..and health and such. As for Soup, he comes and goes as he pleases. I’ve seen some posts where he posted quite a few times, and others just once or twice. We might have to make a rain check.
@Dukey Smoothy Buns I’m only slightly familiar with his hidden humor and innuendos, although for a split second I thought he was making fun of “fatties” in bikinis. Then I realized I missing a deeper picture. You /just/ now cleared it up for me.
If it’s a silk one, then it most definitely could be his.
Love you, alord.
The weather here is superb, by the way. Summer is on its way, thank Christ. I’m currently planning a trip to Europe in May next year. I’m thinking I could extend my trip and my love of the warmer weather by making a stop in Canada on the way home…
For the south-eastern US, in a few weeks the weather should be perfect. “steamy south” really applies to a T here in summer, high 90s-100s and so much humidity, at times my glasses fog up within seconds of stepping outside. Jinkies.
I am not a shit-stirrer. I am simply a compassionate human being, who has absolutely no hatred for any person of any kind who has not hurt me. Seriously, I am incapable of things like prejudice. I wish that all people had such a gift.
I’ll clear it up for you. I’m not a little girl, I’m 20. I don’t know what you would find naive about me, though. I’m not anorexic anymore. Since I was hospitalized, I have started eating fruit. I defend overweight people because if I don’t, who will? Everyone deserves respect, and I will fight to see that they get it, or die trying.
Lol no, thequeen are you sure you have ever seen a history book before? There is a huge difference between being made fun of on Lamebook and being fucken assassinated through your jaw and spinal chord. I don’t hate you. In fact, like I told you a while ago, I just kind of feel bad for you.
@mass, if you like the south, then “my dang net died” should really steam your gears.
@alord *huggles* Hell, *huggles the whole damn thread*
I’m drunk enough off sleep deprivation to do it.
@thequeen I have to agree with Dukey. I too laughed out loud when I read that. I’m not much older than you, 21. Let me give you advice that I learned a few years back. The world will do what it will do no matter what. However, what we advocates can do reasonably, is add one to the list of supporters of whatever it is we support, and do our part. One doesn’t sound like much, but if many people join, and do their part, then the impact becomes great. I was in the same mindset for deforestation and endangered animals and the whole hippie deal. I haven’t given up. But I realize that one person has their limits. Do what you can. Don’t expect to change the whole world. We can be on the side that destroys, and mocks, or do what we can. Just do that. At the end of our lives, we can rest easy that we did the best we could. For fat advocates..idk what you can really do. People will do as they please.
What about the kids that get horribly beaten up for being overweight? What about that kid back at my old junior high school who was tossed through a window for being obese? I’m sure there are people in the world who are actually killed for being overweight. No, it’s not nearly the same as MLK, but it’s still an unnecessary hatred for some people who are not hurting anyone.
Dukey, I’m touched by your.. concern, or something.. but you’re wasting your energy. I was doomed the moment my boyfriend decided he wanted a girl with a little less meat on her bones, all those years ago.
You’re right. I can never change someone’s mind. This isn’t like a movie, where an entire society can be switched over with one motivational speech. But, I feel very strongly about this issue. I feel strongly about a lot of things, but this especially, because of the deep, personal ties I have with it. Every time I see someone being ridiculed or physically beaten for being overweight, it’s like I’m receiving the same punishment. I wish it was as easy as deciding “Whatever, you people do what you want, I’ll be over here doing my thing.” But if everyone had that attitude about unnecessary hatred, then the hatred would never stop. I wish I could articulate this more clearly, but I can’t think straight. My emotions are a bit out of control at the moment.
Crap…I posted that speech after word and Dukey said their things. Ok..they explained it better. >_< I just sounded like a hippie. I was trying to be "nice" about it, but yeah. In short, stop worrying so damn much about things out of your control. Life IS definitely too short.
I resent that statement. I’m young, I’m ill, and I’m afraid. I don’t even know how to make a difference. I’m not a hippie, and I’m not lazy. I can’t believe you would accuse me of such a thing, and I won’t stand for it. As for the victim complex, well, probably. It certainly wouldn’t be the first emotional impairment I suffer from.
I only know whether or not I was satisfied with what I had. I was not.
My real question was, why the sexual overtures at all? You clearly are disgusted by me, and I can sense the hostility and lack of respect behind your words. I don’t see the point in pretending to pursue me.
I think I may die laughing..
I love LB and Soup, Dukey, BritishHobo the most. <333
thequeen Just take dick, period. It eases your mind..
Especially Soup. His fills your every non flabby orifice. All at once. You'll find out where he got the nickname "Soup" soon enough. I'll grab my bf and we can have some mass orgy.
People, as much as something like this would raise my self-esteem, I can’t help but be suspicious of some kind of ruse. Like you’re all in on some big joke against me. Then again, that may be the “victim complex” again. Or acute paranoia. Or insanity.
Am I reading that right? You love BritishHobo more than me? That limey bastard is always stealing my thunder. I guess I’ll just have to rail you extra good at the orgy to improve my standing.
Not only do I have the right, I have an obligation to treat you like the child you portray. Perhaps if you were a little more honest, we could dispense with the verbal foreplay and get to sexing it up in the gravy trough at the all-you-can-eat buffet.
I thought you were crying in the bathroom? I had a great visual of you weeping on the toilet while straining to let loose a deuce. I was so close to finishing, but you had to go and ruin it for me. You just can’t do anything right, can you?
I was crying in the bathroom, but I’ll have you know that I was not shitting. That’s disgusting. But anyway, Ex talked me out. She told me not to waste my time on threads like this because arguing with people on the internet is a “lost cause” or something. She doesn’t understand.
No, I suppose I can’t do anything right. I really do want to know what you want from me, what I’ve done to you, what I’m supposed to say.
mass, while you’re here maybe you could ship queenie a carrot or two (if her orifices haven’t rusted up from under-use). hopefully she’ll know what to do with them. leastways she won’t eat them unless you dip them in chocolate first… which i wouldn’t put past you, you rogue!
anyway, her address is:
Buckingham Palace Road,
London SW1W 0SR
Excuse me while I go smuggle some Twinkies and happy pills out for queenie.I’ll stick them in my fatkini and under my rolls. They stay warmed that way. Does anyone request a special snack to be smuggled?
I haven’t looked at this site in like 2 or 3 weeks, and what’s one of the first things I see, an argument that leads to someone crying. Class. I’ve missed all you commenters.
@thequeen If you’re not a troll and pretending to get upset etc. then you shouldn’t get so wrapped up in all this, it’s just jokes upon jokes, often with no boundaries. So don’t feel so victimised or shocked at the sexual innuendo. It’s all folks like Soup have as they sit there crying to themselves and using the tears to get their penis all slippery.
@mass, alord, junebug Yes, of course. Shipping takes four to six weeks, depending on road, weather, and ocean conditions, if I need to go out at sea to meet one of you.
Dukey mentioned earlier that it’s easy to pick out new people. I’m not necessarily new. I’ve been checking this site for months for laughs. It’s more of me being shy. Last night I decided to try and jump in to join the fun.
fuck you guys. i dont know where you get off picking on people who didnt do anything to you, but seriously i cant believe this shit. i had to take queenie to the hospital this morning because she cut herself. for gods sake, leave her alone! shes sick!
I’m gonna be dead honest a minute excruciasm. (I know, it’s frowned upon to open yourself up personally on the net to potential attacks)
I have mental probs. I’ve had a hellish life. I’ve cut a few times in the past. Until I realized it didn’t do a damned thing but hurt myself and others. Just like any sort of self-harm outlet for depression. Drinkers, druggies. It’s all just temporary relief. It creates more emotional scarring and solves nothing.
If she’s that bad off and can’t realize this stuff on her own, she *might* benefit from a stay at a crazy house. No disrespect meant. But she can’t hurt herself there.
Seriousness over. That will be $100. I’ll also include a roundhouse kick to the face. Just hand me a step stool or chair..this thread is making me feel like Dr. Phil.
Keona, shes already been there. twice. the problem is, shes deluded herself into thinking that everybody hates her and that she has no reason to live. seeing this thread, i dont fucking blame her. we all have mental problems, we all have hellish lives, but those lucky few of us have people who love us and care about us and can support us through the troubling times. she doesnt even have that luxury. well, except for me. i care about her.
I respect you for being able to deal with that so much. Sometimes I can’t stand being around myself. I’ve heard some people talk of out of body experiences. Lucky bastards..I bet they’re not even nuts, yet they can get away from themselves and just float around, chillin’
@mass, I would ask what a trawler is, but as we were talking of oceanic traveling, I can only assume it’s some type of ship or boat. I’ll google it though to be sure.
mass, if I were you I wouldn’t bother trying to work with this bullshit. It has zero interest for me. I’ve said my piece, anyway. Off to work soon. Too bad about the weather over there. It’s gonna be a hot one here today. Yay!
alordslums, i cant believe the type of human being you are. youre an insufferable, arrogant prick and you delight in the misfortunes of others. i didnt think people like that actually existed. you laugh at the thought of someone dying. youre disgusting and despicable. a waste of oxygen.
I normally would never make light of mental illness, but I simply can’t take this seriously. Telling us about a cutting scenario and hospital visit on a Lamebook thread (that was the apparent catalyst for said events) is just fucking bullshit.
“two birds, one stone etc.” I’ll be laughing about that one all day…
ex, not to jump in on your rant but shouldn’t you be at a hospital right now, caring about your distraught queenie? I’m sure alord would assist you with some coordinates if you’re lost. Oh and if you want to be REALLY helpful, you could carry some rat poison for her too. That’s what my uncle used, so I can vouch for it’s effectiveness.
it makes me sad that i know what ‘jerk’ and ‘lousy’ and ‘leastways’ and ‘happenstance’ and ‘faucet’ means, but almost no-one outside of england knows what ‘wank’ means! or if they do, they don’t know that it can be an adjective too! wank is just about the best word ever! ‘i’ve been wanking like crazy for three days straight!’ ‘tito, that t-shirt is wank!’
before anyone jumps on me – this doesn’t make me angry, it makes me sad. like i want to cry a little bit… which usually makes me want to have a wank…
what was i talking about again? i lost my train of thought… i think i was having that daydream again where i assassinated mother theresa..
Marrow is a type of cake I first heard about it when I was living in UK. I think Alord wants Keona to give him piece of that, and then he can share a piece of marrow cake with her afterward (sorry I couldn’t resist). I seem to have become the resident slang/slur/ definition guy here.
Thequeen and ex are a two headed- one bodied- schizo troll. Pity, I liked the idea of a sickly naive 20 year old obese- anorexic Soup wanker.
Keona. You’re actually one of my new favourites so with all do respect I really wish you’d talk about your imperfect genes a tad bit less. I think you’re awesome but I gag easily. Now I imagine you as a mental American bulging out of her bikini, nothing like your pic! Wait a sec… this isn’t Match.com is it?
@Imamofo, I can see why you’d have to explain that last one…considering you must’ve gotten the initials SSF2 THD. I’d have thought it was a license plate number, possibly the one that flattened you.
That being said, now that I’ve walked into this hellish prison and smacked the baddest mofo in the joint in the nose, does this mean I can serve my sentence in peace? I’ve watched jailhouse movies, that’s how you do it, right?
We may have been watching different prison movies to be honest, in all the ones i’ve seen you’d have casually walked in, bopped me on the nose, been bent over the nearest bench and back door battered for a good 1-2 hours.
You’d spend the rest of your sentence calling yourself ‘Daisy’, and extolling how much you love the taste of SSF2 THD.
@Dukey, that made me laugh.
@Saffer, I apologize. I meant no disgust to anyone.
To prove that, yes, my pic isn’t bulging out of anywhere. That’s a picture of me when I was skinnier. I thought if was going to talk about that on LB, why add to the fappability for chubby chasers and add a not-so-flattering up to date pic?
It makes me lose some IQ points every time I hear or see an online dating commercial. I rarely watch TV now, partially because of that trash.
mofo – just wanted to tell you that the streetfighter tat comment had me laughing like zangief after a ground and pound (i’m not gay).
one of my finest moments was streetfighter themed, and it really is a true story.
i, along with 200 or so other english undergraduates, was in a mind-numbingly boring lecture about an english renaissance poet called philip sidney. the dour, menopausal lecturer was talking about his popularisation of certain poetic forms, then went on to describe his untimely death, finally intimating that the two facts taken together led to a boom in sonnet writing in england in the months and years after his passing. whereupon i stood up in the middle of the lecture, and mimicking the action as best i could, let out an almighty
one person laughed, everyone else looked at me with a mixture of abject horror and disgust.
i may have no people skills, but i sure as hell got guile.
@Saffer, I forgot to add this, I’m not sure if you got my jokes, but that’s just what they were, jokes. If you gagged over those G rated pussy topics, would you prefer to re-read the suicidal trollings of the insane queenie and her anorexia?
I digress, to each their own.
Just for you though, I’ll go vomit some while cutting myself so the blood and fat can mix together and pour out of every orifice. Perhaps that will be my new picture.
