Just thought I'd post this news cos I found it interesting.

Yes it's official, America is no longer the world's most obese country. While US figures have gotten no better, a certain country has gotten just that little bit more portly. It is - wait for it - Australia.

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/ET_Cet...how/3149142.cms

Rather surprisingly, Australia has knocked America off the topspot. With a rate of 26% of its population classed as obese as opposed to 25% for the US, it's now number one.

Any thoughts on this? Anyone surprised at it being Australia?

It just means Australia is richer than us and is able to spend more time eating and less time being a worthwhile citizen.

Gotta agree. Take the time out to look at everyone the next time you go to a Wal Mart or do-it-all shop. A majority of the people are overweight. Also, for the most part, you see less fuel efficent cars compared to SUVs. We, as Americans in general, love to waste and gorge ourselves. It's a problem that sadly will be nearly impossible to fix.

I have too much ammo and too much hatred to pass this wonderful oppurtunity up.
