  2. When I was younger I was quite fit and about 200lbs smaller. I had a very very good memory I think?.

  3. I've been saying this for years lol Yes, it's an actual thing that has been studied for years both in the neuroscience realm and the psychology realm.

    But the question is, does stupidity cause obesity or does obesity cause stupidity? Is it a time-sensitive thing or are these fatasses just a victim to natural selection. You don't get to 400 and 540lbs without having some sort of cognitive disorder.

  14. I was going to comment something but I forgot what this thread was all about. Did someone said something about twinkies?, because I do recall something about twinkies. Also not sure if I already had my 20 daily twinkies for today tho, so I better get starting on that too. I was going to comment something but I forgot what this thread was all about.

    Why not both?, it's easier to ruin things than keeping them on good working shape. Stupid get morbidly obese because they truly can't understand the consequences of their actions and average intelligence people get fat because lazy, which then turn them stupid and then morbidly obese. Don't worry tho, if WALL-E taught me anything, is that all this is part of the plan and everything will be alright in the end.

  15. It's probably a death spiral. You gain weight -> get depressed, don't think about what you're eating -> gain more weight -> get more depressed, don't think about what you're eating -> gain more weight 20 goto 10.

  17. Yeah one of the terrible secrets of life is despite all the childhood fairy tales you were told in school, you really can usually judge a book by its cover. People that take care of themselves are usually better people overall than people that don't.
