Alien Feedlot: Mapping the American Fatland
Wow, it looks like either a lot of people just can't say no to their mouths or something else is turning millions into bipedal pork. If the data that informs the linked map can be trusted, the obesity rate between states is pretty uniform. Only 7 show rates between 10-14%, while the rest of the country is larded up at >20 %.
As a reformed fat person who dropped 90 lbs 3o-something years back by eating less and moving more, it's hard for me to imagine that the problem is caused by anything other than gluttony and sloth. But who knows? Perhaps the nation is being fattened up by aliens prior to being picked up for transport to an ET abbatoir. Actually, I'm sure that is the case.
I recall seeing a show on TV back in the 60's entitled "To Serve Man" that made it clear that aliens have a thing for human flesh.
And as everyone one knows, everything on TV is in toto de facto.
