Just saw a thing on TV called "Extreme Makeover". I mean, for goodness sakes, that was the body and face that you were given, why change it?. I blame the mass media for this, thin pretty women, that have never done a days work in their lives!. I may not be a picture-perfect specimen myself, but I would not change my looks to suit everyone else. Surgery?, Nah, Get real!.
Hey, better watch it Mike. Joe is sending his favorite electrical inspector down under after you......
Way off-topic still, but one thing that really bugs me is the idiotic way that young girls are pressured into diets and slimming these days, when most of them look just fine as they are. When we see newspaper stories of perfectly adorable and slim 9-year-olds complaining about being fat, you know the media has gone too far.
That's not to say there aren't extreme cases of obesity though. A few days ago the news here reported the case of a 3-year-old girl who died from heart failure. She weighed over 80 lb.
