    I really hope the dollar collapses and becomes useless and we can finally get back to the way things should be. Hope you guys are stocking up on silver, guns, and liquor.

      I have lots of liquor.

        Right on, it'll be worth a lot when the dollar collapses. Especially really good aged stuff.

          I'll be using my guns to restock my silver and liquor supply.

No wonder they hit the drive thru and vegetate on the sofa. The problem is that if they decide they want to spend less time commuting and working, all the sudden they don't have enough income.
            It actually has a name, coined in Japan: karoshi. It means "death from overwork."

            Here's an article about it -- and I think it's also linked to obesity (cortisol et al).

              Silver. Heh. That works only as well as the demand for it.

                May very well be Jammies. To be honest, this had been my first time to spend anytime in Germany outside of the airport. And I don't know how anyone in Germany remains slim, as good as the German beer is, I know I blew it last week and enjoyed every ounce of it!

                  I also have lived outside of the US for the past six years, mostly in a prosperous coastal Chinese city. The food here isn't all that healthy to begin with, and then it is all drenched in PUFAs. I see bigger and bigger people every day - especially teenage boys and children of both sexes. But what is truly shocking is the lack of muscle tone on ANYONE except very poor migrant workers. Skinnyfat definitely reigns here, and so many people my age (late 20s) are constantly sick, bags under eyes, tired and moody all the time, etc. They work for 10-12 hours a day, staring at a computer, and then start right back up again the minute they get home (usually in their own car - no more bicycling here!)

                  Now, on the other hand, I'm from an area in southern California where it is rare to see anyone who is morbidly obese. Pretty much everyone I know is paleo or vegan or raw or at the very least gluten-free, something that takes them out of the SAD pattern. People spend a lot of their free time outdoors: hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, etc.

                  So, for me, I would rate the people in my community in the US as far healthier than the people in my community in China. There wasn't much of an "AHHHHH, Americans are so unhealthy!" moment for me. But, I know the numbers say otherwise... for now.

                    You are right about it being different from region to region. I recently made a short trip to Durango Colorado and overall the people there looked healthier than the people down in Texas do.

                    But again, like Germany, more exercise (walking, biking) and less fast food

                      Sounds like either Hong Kong or Macau.

                        Not surprising since Colorado is usually ranked as the healthiest US state year after year. Come to the heartland where I live if you want to see some large people. Here in Iowa it’s not only the norm to be obese, but being healthy is actually frowned upon.
