Americans Are Lazy, Fat AND Stupid!

According to a new study conducted by researchers at Michigan State University, only three percent of the 150,000 adults surveyed follow the four basic rules of healthy living.

Here are the "four rules;" don't smoke, eat properly, exercise regularly and maintain a healthy weight.

After all of the money and effort spent in an attempt to educate the American public with regards to this subject, only three percent of the people in this study have "gotten it." How depressing.

The results of this study are the best indication to this date that our country is in real trouble. Forget test scores and all of that crap that educators use to measure the education and intelligence level of the populace. The fact is that despite the constant drum-beat that has been laid down in the media by both the well-intentioned public health authorities and "fast-buck" fitness hucksters, Americans are too stupid, lazy and self-absorbed to "get it."

Here's what one of the researchers posits.

"(The researcher) explained that there are probably a number of reasons why the vast majority of Americans don't follow their doctors' orders. People are busy, live in environments more conducive to driving everywhere than walking or biking, and may lack information about the dangers of unhealthy habits."

Nice try…Here's the reason; Too many of our people are STUPID!

"Live in environments more conducive to driving everywhere?!?" Did I miss something here, do we live like the Jetsons? Are we up in space without solid ground to walk on or water to wade in?

The researcher should have said, "Americans are just plain lazy. We have gotten fat, both figuratively and literally, and it's time to move on and spend our time and efforts on something worthwhile."

What do people need to hear and see? Cigarette companies, liquor companies and fast food chains have been telling us for years that their products are potentially unhealthy – even DEADLY – and should be consumed in moderation. McDonalds has stopped frying everything, grilled chicken is everywhere and exercise equipment is advertised on every channel on cable and satellite television systems.

There have been warnings of grim death on every cigarette package sold for about the last 40 years and yet the vast majority of the population just keeps on keepin' on.

I would have hoped that more people would have been conned into doing the right thing. For as much as I hate the aforementioned fitness hucksters, I would have prefered that as they took people to the bank, the people would have at least exercised as a result.

Out of the 150,000-plus people, less than 25% exercised regularly. Do something, you fat morons. Walk around the block, or around the mall.

Americans are turning into the buffalo. I remember the stories that I read in history class, where buffaloes were shot at by hunters and the herd never moved as their buddies where mowed down by gun fire. It's just like that today, but with dumb, fat Americans.

Fat, inactive, smoking and unhealthy American herd members are watching their buddies pack on the pounds and get sick – with some dropping dead – and they just continue to stand around, gnawing on their french fries and donuts. "Gee look at that, Fred just died. Mmmm, this burger is good…."

Well as an expert – a strength and conditioning professional – I say to hell with all of you, at least the 97% of you who just don't give a shit and are too stupid to get it.

And more people need to do the same. Let's forget about those who are too weak to keep up. Hey, I'm fine. My family is fine.

Don't tell me this is a public health issue. Obesity is on the rise? Well apparently so is stupidity. Worry about that.

So for us 3% let's move on and enjoy the fact that, if this trend keeps up, our we'll have a lot less competition in everyday life. The "new buffaloes" will continue to disappear and our ranks will become stronger and more successful as time goes on.

    With regards to the “Live in environments more conducive to driving everywhere” statement, I’m with the researcher. Compared to for instance Europe walking around is a real hazard in many places in the US, and impractical.

    Compact city cores vs. sprawling cities with stores concentrated in malls mainly accessible by car, is one example.

    Limited public transport is another – with public transport easily accessible people are likely to walk the last bit to and from a stop/station.

    As someone without a drivers license (never bothered/needed one – always lived in cities with good public transport) there are many places in the US where I end up resorting to cabs all the time because it is simply extremely impractical to travel around by foot, and in some cases unsafe (lack of sidewalks and pedestrian crossings) – I’ve yet to be in a similar position anywhere else in the world I’ve visited.

  • http://wisdomandmurder.blogspot.com Lisa McKay

    So, according to the study you cite, only 3% of the respondents followed all four rules for healthy living. The study also points out, however, that 76% of the respondents don’t smoke, and 40% maintained a healthy weight. So in general, we seem to fall down on regular exercise and following a healthy diet, which they define as eating at least five fruits and vegetables every day. I know people who don’t eat that many fruits and vegetables every day and still have a somewhat healthful diet. I think you’re over-reacting just a wee bit.

  • http://www.templestark.com Temple Stark

    Pretty much a disgusting piece here.

    You start off with a false premise that After all of the money and effort spent in an attempt to educate the American public with regards to this subject, only three percent of the people in this study have “gotten it.”

    So wrong you say it twice.

    You don’t mention the fact that sometimes following all those rules isn’t fun – and there are people whose lives don’t center around being super healthy.

    You also say people don’t make the time. One wonders if you weren’t “an expert – a strength and conditioning professional” whether you would have the time or the inclination.

    I’d bet my life savings that if people were paid to exercise many more would. It’s why actors do. It’s why anyone who is paid to look good, does.

    I don’t admire them for it but there are many smart people who smoke.

    There are many smart, fat people, though I don’t understand how someone can choose to live grossly obese.

    So clearly it’s not a question of being “stupid” or “a moron.”

    Now, my having to pay for those decisions in respect to higher healthcare costs – yes, that has become my business and I’m upset about that.

    And your headline, I thought, would be a joke. Didn’t realize it would be the writing underneath. What is the purpose of your piece, anyway. To call people names. to say you’re better than everyone else? Those are both really really great goals. Really.

  • Eric Olsen

    I’m with Sal and encourage this expression of self-righteous indignation. Rant on brother!! His purpose is to light a fire under the bloated lethargic asses of the fast food nation. Kick ass, take names, stand tall!!!

  • http://wisdomandmurder.blogspot.com Lisa McKay

    Oh, I’m all for kicking the asses of the lazy, guys. I’m just against the blatant misuse of research data, which has something to do with what I do for a living. To take those statistics and use them as the basis for calling 97% of us stupid, fat and lazy is just, well, a little over the top.

    But maybe we can discuss this over a hamburger and a beer?

  • Eric Olsen

    okay, but I am truly astonished that less than 25% exercise regularly. EVERYONE can and should exercise and no one should smoke – I am willing to be a little more lenient on the dietary issues

  • http://wisdomandmurder.blogspot.com Lisa McKay

    Well, I have no argument with that. I am particularly wary of dietary guidelines since the FDA can’t seem to make up their mind from one month to the next what’s good and what’s bad – I think most people know what constitutes a reasonable diet, and I’m a firm believer in the notion that there are very few things that are bad for you in moderation. Defining moderation is obviously a key here.

  • sydney

    Well, I’m all for Sal’s forceful call to arms!

    I mean, the rest of the world says it about Americans anyway. Might as well face up and see where the problem lies. We need to get smart about food issue in our country. I remember my Ukrainian ex-girlfriend used to laugh all the time at public gatherings because she found it funny how fat everyone was. It was hilarious to her.

    Another anecdote: When I moved here from Canada I Was amazed at how fast food, and restaurant, portions were so much larger than in Canada. This is truer of the southern states, but is generally true across the board.

    Secondly, There just seems to be way more people here eating fast food. Actually this is really just a subjective observation. Fast food joints though, and restaurants, seem to be a regular part of family dinners here in America. I often see whole families in fast food joints eating dinner. It strikes me as strange, being it’s so unhealthy and so expensive.

    Another thing, the schools here often have a lot of canteen contracts with junk food companies. There is no reason to serve students fries and gravy, and cokes every day for lunch. For one, it makes them fat. Secondly, they haven’t the slightest bit of concentration for schoolwork after having eaten it. Parents have to raise a stink about this and get those damn companies out of our schools. There shouldn’t be soft drink machines or candy machines in our schools. Sandwiches, fruit , salads, and soups are fine (as some schools have served)

    In any case, I can’t say I eat overly healthy myself, but I suppose do better than the average American/Canadian.

  • http://www.templestark.com Temple Stark

    I support his overall point, as well. But I’m very tired of having to wade through name-calling, sensationalistic headlines, snark or supposed humor to get a point, which often seems like the last reason for the post.

  • sal m

    No I’m not overreacting…Only 40% of the people maintain a healthy weight! Almost a quarter of the people surveyed still smoke despite knowing that it can kill you and certainly will adversely affect their lifestyle.

    And the excuse that it’s too dangerous to “walk around” in American because of urban sprawl falls into the same category as the “I don’t have the time to eat right or exercise” baloney.

  • sal m

    Goodness me, perhaps I touched a very sensitive nerve in some people.

    The tone I took in this piece is not the tone that I use every day – and have used every day – for the past 15-plus years in this business. I took this approach because it’s counter to the coddling, touchy-feeley and ineffective approach used these days when dealing with this nation’s laziness and lack of personal responsibility.

    In particular Temple Stark totally doesn’t get it…I make mention of what I do for a living so that the reader knows “from where I come,” not because I think I’m better than those who are too lazy to take care of themself. And to say I workout because I’m paid to do so? What does that mean?

    Stupid has many definitions; slow to learn or understand, tending to make poor decisions or careless mistakes, marked by a lack of intelligence or care.

    Do smokers fit in here? How about those who eat poorly or who are overweight? What about the folks who can’t walk around the block for 20 minutes, three times a week?

    I haven’t engaged in “name calling” since all of these definitions apply to the 97% who have decided to ignore all of the info that has been thrown at them by not following the “four rules.” Would it be better if I just used the word “obtuse?”

    We recently returned to the US after a bad accident. The level of obesity is astounding! And, worse yet, at the U. of Miami School of Medicine, Jackson Memorial Hospital, Cedars and VA Hospitals, etc. there is a McDonalds, a Dunking Donuts and a Subway on the campus area! Something is wrong here. One physical therapist spoke of working with an 850 pound man and special equipment to lift all the big ones off the floor. A healthy life style is needed.
    I smoked (the world’s worst addiction) for many years and had a massive heart attack.
    Of course I also had the poor taste to pick grandparents who all had heart attacks. So who knows what does what.
    Picasso smoked heavily until he was 93.
    The secret is to live well, exercise, eat well, have lots of love and sex and pick your ancestors with care.

  • DaKman

    I agree…Europeans are far more superior to the short, fat, small pecker carrying americans…no wonder we steal their women easily, but who would want them? they are fat and disgusting as well…their intellectual ability is equal with an onion….poor Americans….they are stuck in their cultural wasteland and have no way of getting out…i guess a few have…

  • Nancy

    For starters, no one “chooses to live grossly obese”, or very few, anyway. Most of those unfortunates who are grossly obese have biochemical conditions not well understood that skew the way their bodies process or burn calories. And no, it’s not called ‘overeating’. That viewpoint belongs back in the middle ages, along with the myth that smoking is not addictive.

    On to another aspect of all this. Some time ago, I house-sat for friends up in NYC. Being from an area where housing is set far from shopping, which is clustered around commercial centers usually miles from the housing, which therefore entail driving, I was astounded & pleasantly surprised at how the shops & housing were so interspersed. Very few in NYC own cars. Why should they? NYC has a terrific (IMO) public transport system of subways & buses – & taxis, if needed – and everything is within a reasonable distance of a public transport stop to enable walking. I spent 6 weeks trotting around town, taking buses & subways, seeing great sights & meeting the most wonderful people (for all their vaunted surliness, New Yorkers are actually pussycats, incredibly nice to visitors, in my experience). If I wanted bread, I walked down to the local bakery & back. Not a burden, it was only 3/4 mile away. A nice walk. Ditto the little grocery, a pharmacy, and a 5 & dime store. The only time I used my car was when I went to load up on major groceries, & replaced heavy staples for my friends’ homecoming. Some parts of Baltimore are the same: neighborhoods that are actually livable in terms of little shops in and among the housing, & decent public transit.

    Where I live, the nearest grocery is a big-box chain store about 6 miles away, the nearest “5 & dime” a Walmart which, needless to say, is out in the middle of it’s own county, just about, and everything else is … out at the mall, also out in the middle of nowhere. Public transport? A couple of buses that wander here & there and stop far from any convenient letoff. The opposite of the NYC situation. Unfortunately, I think a good deal of the fattening & lazying of America can be laid at the door of developers & county “planners”, who frankly did a piss-poor job of it. But that doesn’t help most of us any now. Question is, what can be done about it? I doubt anyone is going to start going out & walking 6+ miles to Walmart from the housing areas, and certainly not if they intend to buy anything & have to haul it home.

    As for stupidity, that’s for another thread. But I do wonder how much of US health problems are due, not only to TV, but also to the endless additives & preservatives in most food that we eat? By that, I mean not only increasing weight problems, but also attention deficit disorders, etc.? Manufacturers were putting these chemicals in foods ‘way before they knew more than that the stuff didn’t poison people outright. They never did bother to check what it does 2 or 3 generations down the road….

    According the writter the “smart” Buffalo would break from the herd and tramp out on his own. Of course would only make him a conspicous target out on the dakota prairie. Unlike many supposedly “smart” animals that were exterminated the Buffalo managed to survive and today are not even endangered simply because they followed the herd mentality that we as Americans pride ourselves in.

    I say let the writer break from the herd with the other “smart” 3%. That’ll be a few less rounds for the hunters to fire on the herd.

  • thomas riccardo

    Yes, many Americans are overweight and many are ignorant but If you lived under constant pressure everyday of your lives you too would have troubles.
    The Overweight problem is partially a psychological addiction too eating so as too make up for the lack of something else in their lives, it is used as a drug.
    American wages are plummeting, inflation is rising at 8 to 10 percent a year.
    50 million without healthinsurance, over 100 million with partial coverage.
    The most expensive university system in the world which many cannot afford. The most expensive healthcare system in the world. The most expensive prescription drugs in the world.
    Houses going up in my area 20 to 25 percent a year while wages are flat and healthcare costs soaring along with everything else. An 800 billion dollar current account deficit, a sign of our collasping manufacturing, mining and farming. a Governmental debt around 600 billion when counting the raids on Social Sercurity.
    30 percent of the world’s prisoners, 8 percent of the population has spent time in prison and on probation sometimes for minor offences or innocent of the crime. The only modern industrializd country that still uses the dealth penalty. The patriot act basically destroyed our constitution and now the Government can do what ever it wants to it’s people.
    Degrading road, water, electrical and school systems.
    I could go on all day but all you need to know is America was an Empire with very high standards in all fields but over the past 25 years it is imploding because of corruption and I would not be surprised within the next 5 years we will not go through an economic collaspe like the Soviets went through.

    I enjoyed the article about the fat, stupid, and lazy Americans.
    Where I live, we have river floating on rafts in the summer, it’s most enjoying to see how the populous here have stretched their waistbands and have continued to pursue larger figures.
    As far as people that have commented and used excuses to NOT exersize, that is a form of your own laziness and stupidity as Americans, so thanks for representing my country and driving up costs for medical insurance.
    Please don’t sit next to me next time I fly…

  • Ruvy in Jerusalem

    I was thoroughly amused at this piece – though it is not only Americans who need line up at the “fat, stupid and lazy” queue.

    There is a great deal to American culture that is poisonous. It pushes infantile values of immediate self-gratification, using sex and addictive substances (weed, nicotine, alcohol, meth, sugar, etc.) to keep people hooked and involved. It encourages time-wasting activities (hanging out at the mall, watching TV) to keep people from being productive WHEN NOT SERVING CORPORATE MASTERS.

    The worst part of all this is not watching you Americans indulge in your self indulgence. It is watching fellow Israelis abandon our native culture for yours.

    Feh.

  • Anthony Grande

    “Americans are lazy, fat AND stupid!”

    Hey paisan, if we are lazy, fat and stupid then why are WE the ones who dominate over the world.

  • Ruvy in Jerusalem

    Anthony,

    Romans, your ancestors, dominated the Mediterranean 2,000 years ago, littering the whole place with all sorts of things – buildings, Romance languages, ruins of roads, aqueducts and temples – even an arch in Rome on which is inscribed IVDAEA CAPTA to celebrate the destruction and looting of our Temple.
    But they don’t run the show anymore in Europe, or anywhere else.

    It took a long time before the Roman giant was brought down to the dust – but brought down it was. The same will happen to America.

    It may not happen because of its culture of self indulgence. But I’m willing to bet that when some fellow does write the definitive history of the fall of the American Empire, the culture of self indulgence will figure in it.

    Don’t look at “world dominance” as something important. It’s a great boost for the ego, and it’s addictive, but it doesn’t last.

    Hey, don’t beleive me. Ask Alienboy.

  • http://alienboysworld.blogspot.com alienboy

    Anthony: to be the strongest country in the world in terms of military power is not the same aas dominating the world.

    Think of the USA as some sports jock in some town somewhere. They might be popular, they might be powerful and influential but that’s it. It’s pretty much the same with the USA.

    The funny thing about power and success is this: all pre-eminence is temporary so it is a good idea to be good to people or countries on the way up, simply because they’re going to remember how you behaved and deal with you the same way when the ineviatable decline sets in. This is human nature so it works for people or countries…

    Oh, big hi to Ruvy

  • Anthony Grande

    Ruvy, the United States in different. We really are ONE NATION UNDER GOD. I believe that the bullets of weak American militiamen were guided to the right targets. I believe the George Washington was possesed by the Holy Spirit. That is why he was unkillable during the war. God created us to be the country to stand above and guide the rest of the world. God created us to be the country to bring Democracy back and spread it around the world.

    Sure, Rome dominated but they made many mistakes that we can learn from.

    Like allowing the Barbarians to grow and get strong. Like allowing Atilla (Saddam was a would be Atilla) to get away with the shit he did. Like dividing the empire in two. Like enslaving and cruelty to conquered people. Many other things.

    “to be the strongest country in the world in terms of military power is not the same aas dominating the world.”

    Alienboy, what country is the cause for freedom in ALL of Europe (who saved your ass in WWI and WWII?).

    What country is the cause for the near and continuing fall of Communism?

    Why is the English language the main language of the civilized world? Why is learning English a must in Non-English speaking countries?

    What country is the one leading the fight for Democracy in the Mid East?

    What country is envied by France, England, Germany, Russia and the rest of the major powers?

    What country controls the World Wide Web (Internet)?

    Who caused the fall of the oppresive and dangerous major nuclear superpower, the Soviet Union?

    What country is the role model to the entire world?

    What country is the country that everyone wants to emigrate to?

    Whose your daddy?

    The list can go on and on.

    You say that the U.S. will someday fall? How?

    Not if we continue to have leaders like Bush who take out potential threats before they can do any damage.

    What a shame… Americans are not only Obese, Stupid and Lazy… they also are big Liars, Do Not Keep Promises and Unfriendly inside. Living in USA I felt very empty. They all told me one thing every day: “Unhappy? Go Back to your country!” That’s exactly whAt I did! I had a choice: to stay or to leave! Most Americans have no choice – all they can do is TO STAY! I spent 10 miserable (no date, no friends) years in USA and am now very happy back where I came from. Lots ofd dates, friends and fun! What a sorry ass place USA is and was for me!

    What you say is absolutly true and you dont even need research to prove it. All you need is some common sense and a pair of open eyes.

    I am an American,a republican, and a God-fearing man.I love what America was once and I hate what it has become. I also do my own family history.I am moving to Europe(close to extended family) to get away from the fat,lazy,stupid,self-indulgence that is now the U.S. I lovingly admire my ancestors for the choice they made to move to this country back then to escape turmoil and hardships. Oh! if they could only see the cherished traditions that have been slowly,over time, plucked out and pushed aside in the name of “freedom” All I see is freedom without responsibility. It’s nice to see that SOME people can handle this culture without choking an the second-hand smoke or hacking up french fries.Oh but before I leave will you do me a favor America? Lift a dumbell or something before you turn into one.

    “if we are lazy, fat and stupid then why are WE the ones who dominate over the world.”

    Let me answer this question. I don’t know why…. but visiting Europe I can’t find any fat or obese people for weeks! Americans (as well as their businesses) often make very unintelligent decisions. America imports their scientists. America is very simple and convenient country to live and to do business. America is 300 million big market. Most American small businesses don’t know how to conduct a respectable, quality, trustworthy business. They abuse their customers to much. Make simple mistakes and Americans HATE to apologise and to admit their mistakes. Americans are loud, arrogant and poorly dressed. 45 to 75% of Americans are either fat or obese.

    Hid bio even states “he has no free time”. Maybe that’s fine for him but a lot of people don’t want to spend what little free time they have at a gym or searching for sidewalks to wander around on. Does he have children? I’m guessing either he doesn’t or he’s one of those fathers who pushes his kids into sports and then uses it as an axcuse fro bonding. Yes people should be more aware of their health, but life is a series of choices and to call someone stupid because they prioritise their family over working out, or their bills over health food, is just as short-sighted and stupid. A fully healthy diet meeting all daily requirements every day, for a family of 4, costs a bit more than some can afford. Yes, fast food is terrible for you for the most part, but it’s not burgers that are fattening up a lot of us, it’s processed foods and meal kits. And it’s real easy for this guy to criticise in the one area he’s an expert in. Let’s see him do a post about how self-indulgent jerks are choosing compulsive body-building over their own families. See how he rants against that.

  • Mike

    Greetings to all, the young American today needs to check up on the history of this fine country, why did America become so great and wonderful? The American of today has changed with his or her country, my feeling is to read about great people that have made this country great and follow what they have done.
    A lot of Americans are into them selves only and what they can do or get for just them selves, think about other people and care about them. Yes, Americans are eating the wrong foods and spend to much time infront of a computer or TV.

    Anthony Grande asked: “Why is the English language the main language of the civilized world? Why is learning English a must in Non-English speaking countries?” …

    “What country is the one leading the fight for Democracy in the Mid East?”

    I’ve just stumbled on this rubbish; Anthony … this is not a personal attack, but I believe you are talking absolute, pure unadulterated horse sh.t.

    English is the most widespread language on the planet today because it was spread by the people who invented it to the four corners of the Earth starting some 400 years before America became a superpower. At least 100 years before America became a superpower, virtually every country in the world needed to trade with the British, whose empire literally spanned the globe, and therefore needed to speak the lingo.

    It has been the most widespread language, in terms of geography (yes, there is a world beyond America, and it’s full of democracies where people have as many and sometimes more rights than you), for over 200 years. Spanish did then, and still, runs a close second.

    I’m not British (although I was born there and went to school in England), but I can tell you with all certainty that people in Britain, France, Germany, et al, do not envy America. They like America and Americans for the most part, but the word I would use would be very far from the envy. The opposite, more likely.

    There is an awful lot of good in America, but an awful lot of faults as well, like anywhere.

    And I’ll agree you might have “saved my ass” (fu.k this one always gives me the sh.ts) in WWII, or at least shortened a war in which much of my family spilled their blood, but America had virtually no role to play in WWI, militarily particularly – a fact acknowledged by many eminent US historians better qualified than you to judge. Do your homework on this.

    Get your bloody facts straight before you post this Amero-centric gibberish. It just plugs in to the stereotype of the ulgly American that dogs America, even in its foreign-policy decisions.

    And the fight for democracy in the middle-east??

    Please mate, what rock have you been hiding under?

    STM: Anthony always talks bullshit so don’t be surprised about that. He’s had his childish views ripped apart by almost everybody on the site before now which is probably why he hasn’t been around for some time now. For example, English isn’t the most widespread language in the world – or on the internet for that matter, Mandarin Chinese is.

  • S.T.M

    Christopher: I’m having to go under a slightly different name as I’m now at home wasting my own time rather than the company’s, and must fill in an hour having given up trying to fit a new set of $100 fins to my new board, which now has a hole in the glass and a fetching, arty, almost spray-like red-blob design courtesy of the screwdriver accident.

    Anyway, I digress … I’ve been confronted with all that stuff before, once in a bar in Memphis by a guy with tatts and no teeth. My, how we enjoyed ourselves.

    I know, too, that Mandarin is spoken by more people than anyone else on the planet, but in terms of geographical spread, English is still number one.

    Not for long though, possibly, given the increasing number of Chinese heading out of China.

    Will that last statement bring anyone out of the woodwork?

    Sal
    You make some pretty scathing comments on American life and the people who are living it.
    What about your own addictions? That coffee you drink every morning, the rush of adrenial you get from weight lifting?
    Do you really have any idea at all what fighting an addiction is all about?What about that muscle (something makes me want to say ‘head’ here…but i won’t)bound body of yours.What happens to Sal’s body when he gets too old to lift, or heaven forbid, gets a dibelitating illness(you haven’t been breathing any asbestos or mercury in the post 911 air have you?)? All that muscle degenerates into flab at an amazing rate, the skin sags, the body falls apart. I would be a little more circumspect about pointing the finger at people you may soon resemble, sooner than you might think.
    Are Americans fat and lazy? Yes. Is pointing at them and calling them names helpful? No. It just makes you less of a person.How about you spend a little more time exercising your compasion and helpful nature and a little less time belittleing those around you?

    Despite my bone picking with you, your basic posit is correct. Do you wish to return to that life style from yesteryear? Where people worked so hard during their lives that they were pretty much hungry all the time and die young?Or maybe you are suggesting that we go a little further back, when the people of this continent hunted and subsistence farmed? Remember before the white man came, there were no fat Americans?
    We Indians(the people)had an excellent exercise program, far superior to the one your students practice…are you really suggesting we go back to that? There won’t be any 350 pound lineman then though.
    Between the governmental,corporate,religious and advertising excesses it is hard to see the American people anymore. The bombardment any American recives in his/her daily life of fear,distraction and greed is enough to make anyone sick and the time we have away from our stress adding sedintary jobs and lives, leaves very little left over for nice healthy long walks in the park.
    It seems most Americans don’t even have the time to really look into their politcal choices anymore. Gosh i am far more concerned about not picking a Fascist administration than how freaking fat the people are….
    Actually the American people are a pretty amazing lot. Sturdy, dependable and amazingly friendly…when you have a chance to get to know them on a personal level. They just want the same things everyone all over the world wants. To be safe and secure, to have a better life to offer to their children and that some good may have been left behind them when they are gone.
    To be happy. What really makes people happy seems to me to be your question. That’s where the problem is. I am guessing that very few of us will find this answer in the weight room, the mirror is a much better place to look.

    Gee, Sal, business down? Do you need to insult people to get them to take your training or something?

    I’m not sure who this piece is directed at but the only purpose it’s serving is cathartic for yourself. It’s not like overweight people don’t know they have a problem and insulting them will help.

    While you may feel smugly superior if you call them stupid, it doesn’t make it any truer. There’s a difference between knowing what is good for you and doing it or knowing what is bad for you and not doing it.

    The main problem with your sort of writing (and this is at least the second time you’ve essentially written about the same thing in the same way – don’t you have any other topics you can write about?) is that it provides no insight into the problem to assist in dealing with it effectively nor does it motivate. In fact, attempting to push people with insults generally sends them right to the refrigerator.

    Do you think calling people “stupid” will make them think they need to prove to you how “smart” they are by losing weight? If anything, given your antagonistic attitude, the most likely reaction is to completely dismiss you and everything you have to say.

  • GirlInAmerica

    I am sorry to see that so many people have such a negative view of the United States. Though my country has more than its fair share of the unintelligent and the overweight, that does not necessarily make it a bad place, or Americans bad people due to the flaws of their homeland. Tell me, what magical country do you inhabit that does not have fat and stupid people? In what paradise do you live where the citizens are all healthy and friendly and smart, welcoming to all foreigners and completely peaceloving?

    You would do us all a favor if you kept the ignorant generalizations to yourself — a country should not be defined by the worst of its citizens, and I honestly resent that people seem intent on doing so. Americans are (to put it simply) human, no fundamentally different than any other human on this planet, and have not done anything as a whole to deserve the ire heaped on us for the crime of simply living in the United States. I am not my government.

  • PrimordialSoup Please

    Lovely thread, with some insights on both sides. I’m a rather well known cyclist, 46 years old today. Have traveled the world. I eat organic, avoid any big pharma, big chemical, big oil products, wherever possible. My diet is fantastic, and i climb my local San Diego mountain (Mt. Palomar) twice as fast as almost anyone half my age. Why? Why have I only been in the hospital the past thirty years for bike accidents (ouch!) and the birth of my child? Why does my Thai family love me? Why is my resting pulse about 42, and can i sustain 175 bpm to run a 3:00 marathon?

    It is not genetics, it is discipline. it is not where I live, but what I can dream in my mind I can make my body deliver. It is the geniuses who build my bikes of carbon, aluminum, magnesium and hybrids of the the above. it is avoiding TV, appreciating the freedoms of Capitalism, and disdaining the so called “protections” of socialism and communism.

    My fellow HUMANS who are sedentary get my pity, my disdain, and if solicited my advice. I have helped hundreds of people turn their lives around.

    About Americans. I have lived abroad. People, are people. Americans are imbued with a sense of destiny, dreams undiminished, and a hatred of failure. Second best is not victory to us. Some, have abrogated the American Dream because frankly, it is pretty freakin hard. They smoke cigarettes, take drugs, eat fast food, don’t question pesticides, pollutants, attacks on foreign soil that enrich the virulent politicians they were too lazy to vote for. Still, for all its warts, America The Ideal lives on.

    The Chinese are building quite a society, much of it funded by Nixon, Kissinger, Carter, Clinton/Gore and all of us. Yet, I would take the patriot Act any day, over the oppressions the masses in China still face. In my wife’s country, the friendly people of Thailand hide some sinister thoughts behind their omnipresent smiles. Trust me, they do. I spent many years working for a japanese company, and the prejudice they manifest towards Koreans, Chinese and Americans is palpable. The Cubans, Bulgarians, Germans, Russians, chinese, French, Spanish, Mozambiquians, and hundreds more countries have had massacres of their own in recent history. The Germans spent many a moon trying to take over the world, the British did and then bored them all to death with tea and crumpets. Perhaps only the Swiss, Dutch and Canadians deserve some praise, until you realize how little you can afford when they are done swiping all your income as taxes.

    So, rest of the world, some Americans are weak. Some are strong. Some are healthy. Some are good. Some are evil (Clintons and Bushs). My wife has lived here for almost two years, and as she bows in Buddhist reverence to her favorite Monk, she thanks him for America. We may not be the only superpower, or even A superpower in fifty years, but if that means less stress, fewer taxes, lower debt (a few billion less to Isreal, Egypt, Brazil and others might help) than I am happy for my daughter.

    Money only buys you two things my friends:

    The ability to spend time with those you like, or who enrich you.
    And, TIME to pursue what you enjoy, and what you need.

    As for me? Four trips up Montezuma Valley Road in Borrego Springs, sun beating down on me, bees stinging me, bike rocking at 9 mph for eight hours. THAT, is life to me. TRY to take that from me, and we will see how weak Americans truly are.

    I’m sorry, I’m confused by your post…. as we all know Americans (Bush family & amigos, Larry Silverstein and US Govt.) bombed their own country, their own WTC, their own Pentagon. World Trade Center’s 3 buildings were taken down by hidden explosives as we all know! Pentagon was “attacked”by a military rocket with no wings and not a civilian plane! What kind of moron would not know those obvious facts? So how come Americans are not fascinated with their own? Unless you mean that Americans are not fascinated by Bush and Larry Silverstein? I mean in what kind of “democracy” both President and one very rich man (Silverstein) still walks free after kiling 3000 (actually 6000 including soldiers kiled in Iraq) innocent Americans?

  • Bushman

    The Military Machine (in any country) needs to breathe, so instead of a military coup, they tell to the Govt. “Give Us War” and Govt. finds them a WAR to go to. So the Shrub had to give his military some WAR to play at. And for WAR there must’ve been a REASON. So they MADE a reason by hiring some “terrorists” and some EMPTY planes to hit the WTC. Even if the planes were really hijacked (how terrible for the Govt. is to do that!!) (or perhaps Larry Silverstein hired the hijackers), the WTC was ARTIFICIALLY “attacked” be it Govt. or Silverstein. The Pentagon attack was definitely the job of the Govt. (military wingless rocket) for a reason to go to war. WTC was BOTH – SILVERSTEIN, MAFIA and GOVT. Silverstein, and MAFIA wanted the WTC gone in order to PROFIT from insurance scam and to build new “WTC” there with better offices etc. GOVT. wanted out of this WTC “attack” a REASON for going to WAR.

  • Stinkey

    Excellent thread Sal. Yes sir, Americans are stupid. Most are Democraps. Yesterday I sat down on a bench in front of my local super market. I call this whale watching. Why pay good money to hire a boat when I can see the whales for free in the parking lot. Ever see those commercials on TV for powered carts for the disabled. Im rideing on my GO GO. Now go into your local super market and who do you see. Women with butts tree time the size of Rosie O Donald rideing on their GO GO. Fat is gross and these people smell because they have so many folds in their blubber they cant find the leftover food and dirt. BERNIE said it best. HAVE IT YOUR WAY. FUCKING PIGS.

    inner beauty isn’t going to save you from a heart stroke.

  • Stinkey

    Meghan, inner beauty. This reminds me of blind date’s when someone tried to fix me up on a date. I would ask what does she look like. Answer would be she as a big heart and inner beauty. In other words she’s a whale right. No thanks friend. I cant afford her dinner. How many fat people do you see in 3rd world countries who are starving to death. None. Why. They have no food. I use to think fat people had some kind of gland promblem. No more. They have a to much to eat promblem. America is a country of fat people and fat aint beautiful. We see them every day. Fat men and women. Some of these fat women dress to show every blubber fold on their bodies. They look like blue whales inside a plastic bag. Fucking gross and they smell. I would rather fuck my cat then get it on with one of these pig’s. If I see a beautiful women I will talk to her. Should she have inner beauty fine. If I see one of those female whales I will walk away never knowing her so called inner beauty. Fat folk’s are just gross and they stink. FUCK FAT

  • A.M.

    Call me late to the game on commenting, but Sal, this is right on.

    And I’m getting sick of people complaining that they can’t lose weight because they’re broke. I actually SAVED money in the process of losing 20 pounds, and here’s how:

    Pair of running shoes= $75
    Entry fees to two 5k races = $35
    Couple of shirts my wife bought for me to run in= $40
    Trail running for race training= $0 + effort and sweat
    TOTAL SPENT= $150

    Not buying beer every weekend for six months= approximately -$200
    Buying most of my food from grocery stores instead of restaurants and fast food joints= at least -$100
    TOTAL SAVED= About $300

    Net gained by losing weight= $150
    Better self-image and less weight to carry= Priceless

    Suck on that.

  • Nicole

    I agree completely with your concepts. As for any one who disagrees, I say they’re just some of the americans who like to complain. Many americans don’t like to admit it but all of what has been said is true. Many people are just too dumb to see what is right in front of their face, killing them. I just hope some day americans will realize that their habits are killing them.

  • http://Lewis Lewis

    OK, fat people are starting to piss me off. Last month about this time i didn’t give two shits about what fat people did or thought. As of lately i’m starting to get annoyed. you fat retards need to get a life. sitting at home stuffing your fucking fat pie holes bitching about how stores need to market to your needs because you can’t find drapes big enough to cover your fat fucking ass disgust me. You fat fucks, why did you have to go and whine, most of us didn’t care enough to pick on you, but if you’re going to whine people better give you something to whine about. if you asked me last week do i stare at fat people in disgust to make them feel ashamed i would have said i never gave them a second glance. now that i know they hate going out in public because you feel disgusting and people need to understand your feelings. well now i’m so tired of hearing it and now when i see a fat person i going to make it clear to the big lard i’m looking at him or her. if my kids are with me i will say “boys, now we don’t ever want to worship food”. “eat to live! not live to eat”. Maybe when i say this to my kids in front of this blob which once was in the form of man, the blob might lose it’s urge to eat. look fat people stop crying and people will sooner or later stop picking on you. we all learned this growing up. except your mistakes and change for the better. fat people don’t ever think skinny people will conform to a fat society and change for themselves. if you’re waiting for that you’ll die fat and depressed (no joke). besides if you don’t really wanna change yourself what gives a fat person the gull to think it’s on skinny people to change. remember you’re the one dying young not thinner people. fat people aren’t hurting me. i’m just tired of all the crying. on the news, blogs, etc. so bottom line, SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY!!!

It’s such a Rush to have you Body get Hard and the Blood flowing through your Body. It make my Professional life and personal life that more exciting and worth while.

    I think it’s funny how fat, lazy, stupid people defend themselves so vigorously. Excuses, accusations, and whatever they can think of.
    It’s takes only will power (not a LOT, just simply will power) to not smoke or over eat or excercise. But Americans are mostly spoiled, lazy, short attention span idiots. We have record credit card debt and home forclosures, and record breaking obesity percentages. These are not “inflicted”, these things happen by being stupid…. really stupid.

  • KT

    I am European and have an US colleague. I excersice a lot for the past 5 months simply because body fitness became my passion. When I started she would say that “your body will get to a point where it cannot change”. Disregarding her foolish remark I have since developed muscles, the body is toned, firm and strong. I cope very well with stress, she has migraines and takes two-three painkillers a day.

    I simply don’t understand the mentality (she is a smart girl I must say!) and also her poor knowledge of nutrition. EVERYBODY knows that fizzy drinks are ok when you have a party or celebrating but not on everyday basis. How come a girl with brains can lack on such basic knowledge as is nutrition and fitness – i bet you if she starts just swimming instead of giving me the looks “oh poor you when will you realise that what you do is so pathetic”, the headaches would be gone. I am wondering whether in US you don’t have nutrition classes in school where you can discuss what your body needs (just as you would put garbage into your car as fuel, you shouldn’t put garbage into yourselves).

    The important thing is to have a very realistic picture of yourself being fit (something less on the hips, toned arms, flat tummy, etc.) and you can avoid pushing yourself beyond the healthy line. Some people it seems, live in a world of extreme (fat or skinny and nothing in between) It really does not take extra effort from the little gray cells to understand your body and its needs.

    Also while reading the comments from people here I am astonished that some people really believe that obesity is a malfunction of a body! You underestimate the greatest creation we’ve all been given. just like you cannot suffocate yourself with bare hands your body won’t allow for excess storage of energy (body fat)that can endager important organs. This can be only done by force and self-harm in a way. People who suffer from thyroid malfunction are being treated with medication and can either suffer from being overweight but also underweight. and overall represent less than 1% of “more round” people. so putting illness of the few as an excuse for all the overweight is very low!
    I can however appreciate that people with excess body fat developed illnesses but that is a result of overeating not a cause!

    The funniest thing of this all, is that I buy majority of my gym gear from US!!! There are simply not that many shops with wide selection as they are in US. And i always feel so slim when I can wear a shirt labelled S size (european M size).

    Well, my motto is: be quick, strong and smart. What’s yours?

  • Aaron

  • who cares

    true American media is corrupt and there is a large percentage of obesity but i dont think you need to be over the top rude about it.

  • Eric

    Sounds like everyone needs to grow up and get over themselves. Admit it or not, EVERY country has its ups and downs. Why bitch about other countries if the people in them don’t affect you? Not all of the Americans are fat/lazy/stupid, but if those particular people are happy with their lives, then let them be happy and stop judging them for the decisions they make.

    I’ve lived in America all of my life. This article has some good points, but it is completely biased.

    Being American…
    I’m not fat.
    I don’t smoke.
    I don’t drink often.
    I exercise.
    I’m a musician of multiple instruments and vocals.
    I attend college with decent grades.
    I work my ass off cleaning tables off at a restaurant to make just enough money to afford gas, rent payments and food until I have time for a full-time job after graduation.
    I’m not egotistical.
    I’m not ignorant and I can admit when a huge percentage of my own country is faulty.

    With all of that being said…
    You know DAMN well that you can’t make the claim that everyone here is fat/lazy/stupid.
    Most? Maybe.
    But that does not account for the Americans that live meaningful lives and are worth something.

    Congratulations on posting a rant that points out the ridiculously obvious flaws that my country has.
    You really are something special.

    The fact that you’re ignorant enough to post something that rude without getting to know Americans like me, who defy your claim, just shows how immature you.

    It makes me feel better about myself, knowing that there are people out there who stoop to such a pathetic level.

    There is a common denominator to all successful people! It’s called WORK! Want that hot date, it takes work! Want to make good money, it takes work! Everytime I hear an excuse, that is just one person not wanting to work. I agree with Sal, while he could have used more professional language, I get his point and I agree. I know I have benefited from others laziness, and that’s why I make 6 figures a year at the age of 33. Want to know my secret? Well, its called reading books (NO TV), get an education (OMG, I know that means work for some of you! Ughh), working out (Wow, there is that work thing again), and eating right (Uh Oh, that takes work too). All of these things add up to a powerful and positive attitude towards life, but then again it takes a lot of work! ‘ONLY THE STRONG WILL SURVIVE’ folks, so if you don’t want to keep living your mediocre lives, turn off the TV, get off the couch, pick a book up, or take a class, and stop eating junk food! It’s sooooo simple, it just takes work and effort!

    Four rules?
    “Maintain a healthy weight.”
    How is that rule #4?
    It is the product of eating properly and exercising regularly.
    Therefore, making a redundant filler aimed towards thickening your topic.

    150,000 adults doesn’t account for the whole United States. Sorry to poke a hole in your logic.

  • darwin

    My dear fellow species the average weight of a person for the last 200.000+ years(Homo sapiens) was 76–83kg (167-182)..in the US this has changed the last 20 years to an average of over 191 pounds (86.6 kg)… hmm just 10 pounds difference..no..not really?

    Statistics show that approximately 63% of American adults were considered overweight and that 31% are obese. Of severely obese people, 3.8 million Americans weigh over 300 pounds.

    btw Health Advice: Stay away from the obese, bone damage/crushing possible.. (just kidding..but please people stop eating all the junk that you find around..you are behaving like 5 year olds!) You are adults though! take responsibilty of your lifes! Be ROLE MODELS!

    In Europe we do try as much as possible, it is not a f,cking perfect continent, but hey we are not ignorant..we have been around for 2500 years (Greece at least that is..) Oh,..where is that Anthony guy that was saying stupid things about the US..he must have so fat fingers by now that he can not type possibly..

    The idea that people don’t walk or ride a bike because cities are more conducive to driving is not an excuse. I used to ride my bike to work at five in the morning, year round in Colorado.

    Excuses, excuses. I run or ride my bike everyday (even 6 miles to Walmart). There is no reason, no matter how stressed-out or busy you are (that should give you even MORE reason to want to get on a bicycle) that Americans can’t get some exercise by at least walking somewhere. The real problem is the cycle of stupidity in this country. Stupid parents have many more kids than smart ones and they all end up more stupid only to have even more borderline retarded kids… on and on making things worse and worse. They all worship idiotic video games and tv shows, junk food, and materialistic crap. The trailer park fat moron culture is everywhere now. America has taken this to an extreme – it will continue until it bursts! Actually, I have long maintained that STUPIDITY is really the only problem in this world. All problems stem from it.

    pinches American gringos.

    You Americans are doom, sooner or later your gringo population will decrease. You racist gringos are stupid and fat lazy putos. Chinga USA.

    The only think you Americans are good for is gaining weight. You stupid Americans say you are the true US people:
    You American Gringos are the true wetbacks fat asses.

    HAHAHAHA!

    What I think of Americans is that they are ignorant people. When these Americans visit a foreign nation, what they say is “howdy, I am from North Dakota” or “I am from Tennessee”. Where exactly is North Dakota. Is it a nation or what? I don’t live in America, I have spoken to people who left the USA and what they say was that most American are dreamers, greedy, arrogant, unfriendly, and very patriotic about their nation. An advice that I got was to never visit or even live in the USA. I been around Americans and majority of the advice I’ve been told seems to describe the American people. I must say, how could such a recognize nation be like this. I was going to visit the USA but perhaps it would be a bad idea being surrounded by this ideology that Americans have. One think I have recognized from these Americans is that they seem to hate on everybody. Good think though that I live far away from such a nation full of illness.

  • Yeah

    Richard Lawson:

    1. But not all. I’m not. What’s your point?
    2. If they can afford it, why not let them change the way they want to look or improve themselves? It’s not hurting you.
    3. Not with me. Elaborate on that too: Who?
    4. Most? Do you have sources to back up that claim?
    5. You can be “average” and old at the same time, you know. There are average old folks. But again, what’s your point? What kind of insult is that on Americans?
    6. That’s funny, I don’t believe in god. And I’m an American person.
    7. WOW, this must be the ONLY country with hypocritical people. No, I find that very hard to believe. I find it ironic you would say that, when your #15 says we’re ignorant. But yet you’re making all of these claims about people you don’t know. You don’t know anything about me. And none of your claims applies to me. So quit being so ignorant, you hypocrite.
    8. American people did it, but you can’t blame the whole country for it. I had no say in it. I thought it was a stupid thing to do.
    9. Always? Again with the ignorance. And you’re stretching the truth by making all of these claims. You’re calling out most or all Americans based on a portion of us that you either know or have heard things about. Shame on you.
    10. Another false claim. I don’t know what women you’re referring to, but my woman can cook a healthy meal and believe me, she knows how to satisfy me.
    11. You can eat fast food on occasion and still lead a healthy life. It’s not a black/white subject.
    12. Ignorance. Your viewpoints are outdated. There may be a handful of nuts down south (like there are everywhere in the world), but people in the south aren’t as “slow” as the media makes them out to be.
    13. There you go again with the word “most.” I’ve never heard one person call him a gift from God. Most people I know pretty much think Bush has Down’s Syndrome.
    14. I’m not. And I don’t know anyone who is one. And again, that happens in other countries too. So what’s your point?
    15. You don’t need to repeat **** that you’ve already posted.

    It’s funny how you can sit there and trash talk most or all of the Americans when YOU DON’T KNOW MOST OR ALL OF THE AMERICANS. And who says you’re perfect?

    Get a grip.

    @alienboy and @Ruvy
    Would expect to have many long and stimulating conversations with you both.

    @Anthony Grande
    You don’t even realize how common the attitude is that you express in your comments. To say that you’re riding the coat-tails of your predecessors is an understatement. Common and mediocre like sand on a beach and altogether underwhelming. I’ve heard it a thousand times before.

    The insane need to dominate for the sake of dominating is often marked by self-absorption and a complete lack of a grip on reality. Without having any clue as to what the rest of the world needs, establishing a vision for the world is pointless. Without a long-term vision, or even any established interest in anyone else (even your own citizens), the remaining alternative is to turn inward, to indulge oneself, puff oneself up, and to destroy anything that threatens that.

    The United States has nothing to offer me. I am not interested in spending my life fattening myself-up so that I can boast about my accomplishments to the mirror all day long. I’d much rather share what I have with others who don’t have anything. To me this is far more rewarding than self-aggrandizement and far more permanent.

  • zingzing

    yay! i love lists!

    1) Most Americans are either obese, fat or anoxia.

    “anoxia?” that’s a low level of oxygen, but i don’t know what that’s got to do with this. americans are a low level of oxygen… ok.

    2) American women of course have fake breast plants and ass plants.

    not “of course.” i do not know of one woman who has a fern attached to either her chest or rear. nor a vegetable garden. so i’m guessing it’s a relative rarity. now, implants, they’re more common. but still not all that common. i’ve never been with a woman with implants, and i’ve been with my fair share of women.

    3) Nazism is starting to rise up in the USA along with the extreme far right mentality and third Reich.

    that’s going a bit far. and do you really want to be so specific about the third reich? i doubt they want to do it for germany.

    4) Most Americans don’t even complete their four years of high school.

    that’s not true. 80% of americans graduate high school. where are you getting this stuff?

    5) Old American people (Example# Dick Cheney or Jim Gilchrist) from the age of 60 through 100 and older refer themselves as your average Joe American.

    the average age is getting older, but age isn’t really the determining factor in the phrase “average joe.” you can be an average joe at age 30, and you can be an average joe at age 70, as long as you fit other criteria.

    6) American People blame GOD or say GOD was the cause of 9/11 (especially these Republicans)

    nah. most people blame muslims or george bush.

    7) Americans are hypocrites

    fair enough. humans are hypocrites.

    8) American people declared war on a nation (Iraq) that had nothing to do about 9/11.

    well, sorta. there was a pretty big fight about it, so the “american people” didn’t exactly do any declaring. bush did. but i’ll agree that was pretty stupid.

    9) American people always deny the facts and truth.

    i deny that.

    10) The American Women can’t even cook a healthy meal or even satisfy a man.

    heh. that one’s hilarious, but i’ve had both healthy meals and lots of satisfaction from american women. you’re a strange person.

    11) Most lazy Americans spend their time eating McDonalds and lots of other fast food restaurants.

    i for one, have probably eaten at fast food places 5 or 10 times in the past decade. a lot of people do eat there, but unless your “lazy” modifier is specific and not all-encompassing, you’re stretching the truth real far with that one.

    12) The Redneck population in the US still believes that the whole universe (including the sun) rotates around the planet earth.

    you believe that, but it’s not true. i’d find it hard to believe that someone would know the history of ancient greece and ptolemy, but then kinda doze off before the mid-1500s and copernicus come around. either they wouldn’t think about it at all, or they wouldn’t subscribe to ancient ideas all their lives.

    13) Most Americans are so religious people that when George Bush was in office, they said he was a gift from GOD, they also said Siege Heil.

    your english is as bad as your german, as is your logic and knowledge of america.

    14) American people are genociders (especially these Republicans).

    wow. you’re just making up words and shit.

    15) America, land of the ignorant’s, home of the obese, fat or anoxia.

    “ignorant’s” is also not a word. you could say “america, land of the ignorant,” or “america, land of ignorance,” but not that hilarious bit of nonsense up there. and again, you’ve got the wrong word going on at the end. anorexia? maybe?

    you really made yourself look pretty stupid with that one. hope you come back around! lalalala.

  • Richard Lawson

    Zingzing
    1)yay! i love lists!
    OKAY, lets what this retard has to say
    2″anoxia?” that’s a low level of oxygen, but i don’t know what that’s got to do with this. americans are a low level of oxygen… ok.

    Wow, and tell me, do people really give a shit what you think

    3)not “of course.” i do not know of one woman who has a fern attached to either her chest or rear. nor a vegetable garden. so i’m guessing it’s a relative rarity. now, implants, they’re more common. but still not all that common. i’ve never been with a woman with implants, and i’ve been with my fair share of women.

    Again nobody really cares what you think. So are you saying that you love choking on water balloons?

    4)that’s going a bit far. and do you really want to be so specific about the third reich? i doubt they want to do it for germany.

    Will don’t these Americans have a Nazi Party which I believe the person who is the founding father of the American Nazi Party is George Lincoln Rockwell

    5) that’s not true. 80% of americans graduate high school. where are you getting this stuff?

    And according to your data were might you possibly be getting this answer, you must be making this shit up. By far USA is the only nation that really doesn’t give a shit about education because these yanks know that china and Japan will be manufacturing their technology and the people of Mexico will be producing there food. But sooner or later these yanks are going to become a depend people in which without China or Mexico, they die

    6)nah. most people blame muslims or george bush.
    Stop blaming foreigners why your nation is in ruins, blame yourself. Hick you morons were the ones who elected George Bush.

    7)fair enough. humans are hypocrites.

    Don’t blame no one why all you Americans are misantrhopes

    8) well, sorta. there was a pretty big fight about it, so the “american people” didn’t exactly do any declaring. bush did. but i’ll agree that was pretty stupid.

    Again nobody really gives a shit about your opinion.

    9)i deny that.

    Wow, So are you going to deny why Americans always hate hearing the fact. If it wasn’t for those ten thousand French troops who battle in Siege of Yorktown, would America even been able to declare it’s independent. Hear is another fact, Americans were not the first people who invented the first automobile. But again knowing how close mined Americans are, these yanks might say hey screw the fact.

    10)heh. that one’s hilarious, but i’ve had both healthy meals and lots of satisfaction from american women. you’re a strange person.

    You are a very strange person, seriously its difficult to understand what you’re saying. I know that most American woman love gaining who knows how much ton of weight or perhaps go skinny like Nicole Richie. I know this fact because I used to reside in the USA which most of the bitches in there had this attitude of arrogance.

    11)i for one, have probably eaten at fast food places 5 or 10 times in the past decade. a lot of people do eat there, but unless your “lazy” modifier is specific and not all-encompassing, you’re stretching the truth real far with that one.

    And were must you be getting this fact. You must be making this bullshit up.

    12 you believe that, but it’s not true. i’d find it hard to believe that someone would know the history of ancient greece and ptolemy, but then kinda doze off before the mid-1500s and copernicus come around. either they wouldn’t think about it at all, or they wouldn’t subscribe to ancient ideas all their lives.

    Is the USA a nation full of retarded people or what. Seriously, you see it in tv and majority of these Christian in the United States wants religion to run the government. If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ in the USA, they either call you a anti Christ or a devil worshipper. Do these yanks really know how much religious believes exist outside the USA or what. DO these yanks know about Buddhism or what. I wonder if Zingzing is some kind of a branch Davidian like David Koresh.

    13)your english is as bad as your german, as is your logic and knowledge of america.

    You English is retarded as you American accent.

    14)wow. you’re just making up words and shit.
    Wow, this piece of shit must be proud on killing innocent people in Iraq, the Middle East and in Vietnam.
    Will funny though that at lease America lost in Vietnam. These yanks might say something like it was a draw, but in reality, USA lost the Vietnam War and that is a fact.

    15) “ignorant’s” is also not a word. you could say “america, land of the ignorant,” or “america, land of ignorance,” but not that hilarious bit of nonsense up there. and again, you’ve got the wrong word going on at the end. anorexia? maybe? you really made yourself look pretty stupid with that one. hope you come back around! Lalalala.

    Poor fool, will knowing how many stupid people live in the USA and knowing how these Americans try to copy their idol such as Eminem, 50 cent and Wily Nelson. USA is a nation full of dreamers in which these yanks fantasizes on being rich and having all the fame. These Yanks are njot living reality.
    It’s so Hilarious how this moron proved how ignorant he is and the stupidity that the USA possesses.
    This moron really made himself look stupid and retarded. Is this what these Yanks really refer to as the American Dream, Does the American Dream stands for arrogance, Ignorance, fantasizing, Killing people, denying fact, hating, retardation , obesity, and gaining weight. Damn no wonder why people hate America, and just the name America, Isn’t America a continent. The name of the USA should tell you enough fact on the arrogance Americans are. Sooner or later the USA will collapse just like what happen to the Roman Empire. When this does happen, finally this will bring a huge relieve to humanity and to the world. The world will no longer witness greediness or imperialism from a nation that is full of Misanthrope.
    AMERICA SUCKS!
    PS: FU ZINGZING AND FUCK USA!

  • Richard Lawson

    (Yeah)

    You got to be kidding me right, Is America really a nation were freedom of speech doesn’t exist.
    Will after getting a reply from your retarded average American ZingZing, will what do you really expect of the USA. Seriously you Americans should move on to reality.
    To tell you the truth, I really don’t care about American women none what so ever. I get these facts about American women from friends who used to date them. I never have gone out with American women and I never plan to do so.
    You Americans are really good at sabotaging nation (Iraq, Vietnam) and killing people.
    And tell me this, why was it that 9/11 even occurred in the USA. What about the Christmas incident of 2009, this should prove you how much people hate Americans. They are willing to put an explosive device up their own asses just to kill you. Nobody in the world really likes America. You American think that you are all the best that there could possibly be, but in reality you’re not. You yanks are a nation who depends on China and Mexico.
    Sooner or later your nation will break up thanks to politicians like Rick Perry who is asking for secession from the Union. I was in a rally in San Antonio Texas hearing Rick Perry discuss about secession from the Union and as I know of Texas isn’t the only state who is asking for secession, States like Arizona and Alaska too are asking for secession. Hopefully those states will secede and the USA will dissolve.
    The more you Americans continue hating people you don’t even know, the more miserable your standard way of living will be.

  • sergio

    americans are very dumb.; monolinguistic, noncultured, do not know about anything other than, porno, baseball caps, tee-shirts, and bbqs. USA is filled with work-addicted baby boomers who have permanently screwed the country by $$$$ greed. americans are narrow minded, workaholics who talk about $$$ constantly, define themselves by their jobs, and cannot relax. they obsess over porno, tv, emailings, “pop” stars, and watching millionaire imbeciles swing their hands to hit balls; many do not read, symphony, or know how to truly relax. they only get 2 weeks of holiday a year whereby they inudate beaches, yelling/screaming, rude, obnoxious yelps from those americans–truly deranged from workaholism and their paltry 2 week holiday?!?! They cannot carry on a cogent converation unless it involves sports, porno, screaming, drugs, or talking about work/boss etc… Those corporate dumping grounds (work) terry nickell dime their employees hence, the american employee stupidity–especially when they dare leave the confines of their mother land. some are extremely dumb and come from the midwest (mid-worst) .i.e; kentucky, minnesota, west viginia, tennessee, ohio, illinois. Plumb dumb, whiteville, with no depth other than talking work or pick-up trucking.

    richard lawson: “Wow, and tell me, do people really give a shit what you think”

    no. you?

    “Again nobody really cares what you think. So are you saying that you love choking on water balloons?”

    no. you?

    “Will don’t these Americans have a Nazi Party which I believe the person who is the founding father of the American Nazi Party is George Lincoln Rockwell”

    we killed him. also, the word you’re looking for is “well,” not “will.” different words, them.

    “And according to your data were might you possibly be getting this answer, you must be making this shit up.”

    sorry?

    “By far USA is the only nation that really doesn’t give a shit about education because these yanks know that china and Japan will be manufacturing their technology and the people of Mexico will be producing there food. But sooner or later these yanks are going to become a depend people in which without China or Mexico, they die”

    i’m not sure where you learned english, but you’re not doing it right. wherever you are, you’re getting the same technology. i’m currently typing on a computer developed in that asian country of california. you?

    “Stop blaming foreigners why your nation is in ruins, blame yourself. Hick you morons were the ones who elected George Bush.”

    9/11 was perpetrated by a few angry muslims. and i didn’t vote for bush. in fact, more people didn’t vote for bush than those that did. funny, eh?

    “Don’t blame no one why all you Americans are misantrhopes”

    what? also, i hate you. and everyone else.

    “Again nobody really gives a shit about your opinion.”

    espn.

    “Wow, So are you going to deny why Americans always hate hearing the fact. If it wasn’t for those ten thousand French troops who battle in Siege of Yorktown, would America even been able to declare it’s independent. Hear is another fact, Americans were not the first people who invented the first automobile. But again knowing how close mined Americans are, these yanks might say hey screw the fact.”

    my god, you can’t fuck up english like that without trying. are you a comedian? i’m beginning to think it’s a possibility.

    “You are a very strange person, seriously its difficult to understand what you’re saying.”

    that’s because you don’t read or write english terribly well.

    “I know that most American woman love gaining who knows how much ton of weight or perhaps go skinny like Nicole Richie. I know this fact because I used to reside in the USA which most of the bitches in there had this attitude of arrogance.”

    seriously, are you using an internet translator or something? yes, all american women either weigh 2,000 pounds or 90 pounds. all of them. you know this. it’s true. uh huh.

    “And were must you be getting this fact. You must be making this bullshit up.”

    the word is “where.” also, i’m telling you something that i have done (or not, as the case may be). so, therefore, it’s pretty obvious that the source of “this fact” is, in fact, me. hard to understand? maybe. but it’s true. can someone get this guy a translator? the word “i” seems to be too difficult for him.

    “Is the USA a nation full of retarded people or what. Seriously, you see it in tv and majority of these Christian in the United States wants religion to run the government.”

    “you see it in tv?” see what? yes, there are those in the us that are very christian and want a theocracy, but they are few and far between. we’re actually built on the exact opposite idea. what tv are you watching?

    “If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ in the USA, they either call you a anti Christ or a devil worshipper.”

    i don’t believe in jesus. i also don’t think anyone has deemed me important enough to call me the anti-christ, but that day may come. it should be obvious that, by proxy of the fact that i don’t believe in jesus, i also don’t believe in the devil. most people are intelligent enough to figure out that fact. you?

    “Do these yanks really know how much religious believes exist outside the USA or what.”

    i have no idea what you’re trying to say here. your english is really terrible.

    “DO these yanks know about Buddhism or what.”

    i actually like buddhism. out of any religion, that’s the one that works best for me. a nice religion, buddhism. has its head in the right place.

    “I wonder if Zingzing is some kind of a branch Davidian like David Koresh.”

    where you’d get that idea is beyond me. but it’s pretty obvious you’re either nuts or you don’t understand much english.

    “You English is retarded as you American accent.”

    i’m afraid that a) you don’t know what my accent sounds like and b) you english is more retarded then me is.

    “Wow, this piece of shit must be proud on killing innocent people in Iraq, the Middle East and in Vietnam.”

    oh, so totally proud. you’ve obviously figured me out.

    “Will funny though that at lease America lost in Vietnam.”

    do you know what that sentence means? because i don’t. then again, i don’t know much about real estate.

    “These yanks might say something like it was a draw, but in reality, USA lost the Vietnam War and that is a fact.”

    um… yeah? it’s recognized as a loss here. why you think otherwise baffles me. ever heard anyone call it a us victory? i haven’t.

    “Poor fool, will knowing how many stupid people live in the USA and knowing how these Americans try to copy their idol such as Eminem, 50 cent and Wily Nelson.”

    that’s a motley group. again, i think the word you’re looking for is “well,” not “will.”

    “USA is a nation full of dreamers in which these yanks fantasizes on being rich and having all the fame. These Yanks are njot living reality.”

    of course they are living in reality. there’s not another way. but to dream is a good thing.

    “It’s so Hilarious how this moron proved how ignorant he is and the stupidity that the USA possesses.”

    yes, yes it is.

    “This moron really made himself look stupid and retarded. Is this what these Yanks really refer to as the American Dream, Does the American Dream stands for arrogance, Ignorance, fantasizing, Killing people, denying fact, hating, retardation , obesity, and gaining weight.

    3) we killed him. also, the word you’re looking for is “well,” not “will.” different words, them.

    Oh I see that the way youy Americans handle issues is with violence

    4) Sory

    None taken

    5)i’m not sure where you learned english, but you’re not doing it right. wherever you are, you’re getting the same technology. i’m currently typing on a computer developed in that asian country of california. you?

    Will I know that you American Have an accent that goes yall which its difficult to understand. So no are you saying California is a country, I know Texas wants to be a country which if they do secede from the USA, Well good for thewm.

    6) 9/11 was perpetrated by a few angry muslims. and i didn’t vote for bush. in fact, more people didn’t vote for bush than those that did. funny, eh?

    Will doesn’t 9/11 prove you how much people hate America.

    7) what? also, i hate you. and everyone else.

    Okay, It difficult to understand your American Accent. I know you Americans killed more Iraqis than saddam did in his whole entire dictatorship years in Iraq.
    8) espn
    Wow, do you Americans just type BS like for example (KIHSDNAO) or what.
    9)my god, you can’t fuck up english like that without trying. are you a comedian? i’m beginning to think it’s a possibility.

    Wow, you just fucked English up. Hey I think you are a Dixie

    9) that’s because you don’t read or write english terribly well.

    INO no, You Americans can’t speak English will , even a retard writes better than any of you white trash yanks
    10) seriously, are you using an internet translator or something? yes, all american women either weigh 2,000 pounds or 90 pounds. all of them. you know this. it’s true. uh huh.

    Are you using the internet translator in speaking in your American accent or what. Again nobody cares what you think.

    11) the word is “where.” also, i’m telling you something that i have done (or not, as the case may be). so, therefore, it’s pretty obvious that the source of “this fact” is, in fact, me. hard to understand? maybe. but it’s true. can someone get this guy a translator? the word “i” seems to be too difficult for him.

    Nobody wants to learn how to speak American, Outside the USA, we don’t use the word yall or howdy.

    12)”you see it in tv?” see what? yes, there are those in the us that are very christian and want a theocracy, but they are few and far between. we’re actually built on the exact opposite idea. what tv are you watching?

    You must be a Christian right, Again what you Americans release in your tv shows are based on American reality.

    13)i don’t believe in jesus. i also don’t think anyone has deemed me important enough to call me the anti-christ, but that day may come. it should be obvious that, by proxy of the fact that i don’t believe in jesus, i also don’t believe in the devil. most people are intelligent enough to figure out that fact. you?

    Will again I am not an American and why is it that you Americans always say “under god” when you say the pledge.
    i have no idea what you’re trying to say here. your english is really terrible.

    14) i have no idea what you’re trying to say here. your english is really terrible.

    Stop speaking in this American Dixie accent, its difficult to understand what you are saying.

    15i actually like buddhism. out of any religion, that’s the one that works best for me. a nice religion, buddhism. has its head in the right place.

    Sooner or later I bet you religion will run the US government and the education.

    16)where you’d get that idea is beyond me. but it’s pretty obvious you’re either nuts or you don’t understand much english.

    [personal attack deleted] and perhaps English isn’t your prime language.

    17) i’m afraid that a) you don’t know what my accent sounds like and b) you english is more retarded then me is.

    Seriously Stop killing the English language, We all know [personal attack deleted] you Americans have a Dixie accent.

    18) oh, so totally proud. you’ve obviously figured me out.

    Good thing though you yanks lost the Vietnam war,

    19) do you know what that sentence means? because i don’t. then again, i don’t know much about real estate.

    [personal attack deleted]

    20) um… yeah? it’s recognized as a loss here. why you think otherwise baffles me. ever heard anyone call it a us victory? i haven’t.

    Again nobody cares what you think; there are some patriotic yanks that say the Vietnam War was a draw.

    21) that’s a motley group. again, i think the word you’re looking for is “well,” not “will.”

    [personal attack deleted] Nobody cares what you think

    22)of course they are living in reality. there’s not another way. but to dream is a good thing.

    You know what; it’s easier to understand A French when they speak English, When Americans speak English they always have to use this accent which makes them look retarded.

    Funny though how these yanks continuing dreaming on how great they are but yet, no nobody likes them, People hate America so much that they would crash a plane into a US tower (9/11) and put explosive devices up their own a*s*s just to kill them (Christmas incident 2009.)

    23)yes, yes it is.

    By the way. Shouldn’t people be discussing how lazy fat and stupid Americans are in this website or what? Will knowing how you Americans understand little English, can’t blame them

    24)misanthropes.” nice rant on hating people there. you do understand irony, right?

    I bet you don’t understand irony or hypocrite. Are Americans really that stupid or what,

    25)oh my god, you’re so big…
    Oh goodness sake, Your words are so retarded.

    What was your comment, zing? You’re pretty good at couching even the most outrageous things with humor.

    Have you really overstepped?

  • zingzing

    no, i think mine was deleted as a consequence of the guy being banned. i was certainly planning on having bits of it censored, but overall, it was just some fun.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    Indeed it was. I was looking forward to more of it.

    zing, sorry, but the guy overstepped the mark and had to go. So, therefore, did anything you subsequently posted in response. In hindsight I probably should have deleted the whole exchange, but oh well.

    Cleanup is often messy. Sorry again.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    I’m certain though, Dreadful, that zing didn’t take it as an affront. It’s unlike him, and I’m sure you know it.

  • K$

    It’s kind of true that people are ignorant…not stupid, though. Everyone has the capability to understand, just many Americans choose not to.
    The fact is that our environment really IS very impractical for walking. I just got back from Japan and let me tell you, everyone walks/rides public transit/rides bikes. But that is because there is a grocery store in every single little town, everything is condensed, companies are very prevalent, everywhere. It is very, very easy to walk to the grocery store, train station, elementary school, etc. within 10 mins. To get to high school, it usually takes longer, but then they can just walk 10 minutes to the train. American public transit sucks, and once the government gets on that and builds trains in more locations, and normal people instead of just creepy bums start riding public transit, I am sure there will be a change in the way people move around here.

  • SKINNY

    Lazy people tend to get obese, so I work and consider myself skinny and my taxes pay for the food the lazy people use to get obese.

  • Francesco Facco de Lagarda

    Yes, americans are fat and stupid, this is a documented known fact. The explanation is very simple: Long before USA was even “invented”, there existed the catholic church. Despite their claims to direct lines with God, etc, the Catholic Church discovered only one Great Truth: if you want to govern a population unquestioned you have to keep they belly’s full and their minds empty. Well fed ignorants will not question government. It’s basic, simple and effective. Luckily we in Italy also have a government (God help us for it’s condition…) which, at least, offers an alternative to the Church’s dominance and dogmas. Unfortunately, in the US, the govermnent IS your church (in this respect). They’re keeping you belly’s full and you minds worst than empty: they are filled with rubbish tv, Kiss the flag, americans do it better bullshit. Sorry guys, you don’t stand a chance! I think the USDollar’s recent performance shows it. You are NO longer n.1, and don’t have the intellectual tools to recover. LONG LIVE THE OLD CONTINENT.. after all you are only colonials with no real nation or backgroud. So just keep eating up your junk food and junk culture and run along ….

  • Francesco Facco de Lagarda

    .. ps If you had ANY doubts left about your weight problem, just read this.

    You are 300.000.000 out of 6,700,000,000 which makes you 4,5% of the population and yet you account for 15% of the world body-weight. The Math is simple: with every 1 american you can make 3 normal human beings!

    I’d bet a billion dollars that all of the people commenting here who are against what the writer is saying…are fat lazy ass people with not much more than a high school education…if that.

    McDonalds eating, non exercising, retards.

    It pisses me off when some fat person says, “if you’re into looks”…etc etc. As if you should date them regardless of the fact that they’re fat. Fuck you. I don’t feel one bit sorry for your fat ass. No one MADE you gobble down all those cakes, chocolates, and McDonalds burgers. YOU did that to your self! AND…you are to lazy to exercise. Fat people sicken me!

  • Kyle

    This blog reeks typical Liberal hate America and try any way to bash it and it’s people while claiming they are *peaceful*.

    Read this site and wake up to the dangers of Big Brother Government.

    In fact a lot of the modern Republicans are really Liberals in disguise and everything is designed on purpose to keep the USA fighting each other in hopes of keeping us divided instead of united standing up for our rights that are almost stripped away.

  • Kyle

    Any socialists state has a huge problem of fat lazy people because they have no spark left to work for a living ina job they like because the government taxes the hell out of them.

    So why go thru all that bother when you can just get free welfare from the government and be forced to live under their nose your whole life being told what to do.

    Having Welfare to deal with hard times is one thing but depending on it is completely wrong and the government has designed society to make you depending on it instead of living within your means.

  • Kyle

    Oh. Did I mention the government has scared most non service jobs away to China that has dangerous working conditions?

    We are now a socialists and service country just like Europe unless Europe still have factories that make their own materials left.

  • http://blogcritics.org/writers/dr-dreadful/ Dr Dreadful

    Care to back your argument up with any evidence demonstrating the wall-to-wall blubber on show in “socialist” European states like Denmark, Spain, the Netherlands and Greece, Kyle?

  • BlogShag

    I agree with this article, and I too am totally disgusted at the way most Americans eat. Then they have the nerve to complain about the way they look. No it’s not easy, but grow the hell up. It also isn’t as difficult as most people say it is to eat healthy and exercise regularly.

    I have met so many people that cannot eat vegetables without them being slathered in fat, butter, cream, etc… It’s gross. And then, they tell me they don’t eat fruit. What? What’s up with that? That’s just stupid.

  • Daniel

    The person that wrote this fails to include people in Manhattan(NYC). They are the thinnest people in the country, they are American, and they walk everywhere. That is pretty much the only difference as their diets are the same as the average Americans. Except they eat more pre-made foods and fast food and are still thin. The only difference being that they walk pretty much confirms that this article is crap.

  • Lincoln Memorial

    Yes, year on year Americans will continue to expand until their collective mass tips the Earth off it’s axis and nudges us into the Sun. Then we will all be buggered. So stop eating huge fried piles of shit and get off your backsides you lazy sods. God bless the USA, land of the free and home of the lard arse.

    That’s great, just one thing; the American atmosphere is conducive to driving. The atmosphere you suggest makes walking IMPOSSIBLE. Whereas in the states, long distances to the stores, heat in the summer and a lack of adequate side-walks make the environment conducive to driving. Plus the sheer volume of cars can make cycling more dangerous. And the fact that one of the criteria is about “maintaining” a healthy weight; a proportion of those studied were probably trying to lose weight, so didn’t meet that criterion.

    Otherwise I agree. Just my two cents on the matter.

  • Zulu

    Fat ass lazy smoking white Americans are worth no shit, all they do is watch tv,smoke the whole day and eat their shitty foods.I
