58 stone or 812 lbs Keith Martin is the fattest man in the world. He isnt a professional anything, DAMN! that is one fat human! He would eat a Snorlax. When was the last time this thing masterbated? does the government pay for that to be done for him?
HIS TYPICAL DAILY MENU
Breakfast: Keith Martin typically starts the day with eight hot dogs and four slices of bread, or a pile of ham sandwiches followed by coffee with sugar.
Lunch: A selection of chocolate bars, cakes, a packet of biscuits plus more coffees with sugar.
Dinner: Two whole roast dinners with all the trimmings, or 16 sausages plus a family-sized bag of oven chips washed down with coffee.
So how fat is he? Well it takes 8 guys to move him into a reinforced vehicle (dumptruck?) for his hospital visits.
While it pisses me off that the rest of us normal folk have to pay for it, he probably has it hard enough already, even if it is self-inflicted. You see the same lack of sympathy for addicts for the same reason, when really it's a health concern we should be trying to treat, not something we should point and sneer at. At least he wants to finally start trying (though I won't believe it until I see it) because I can see how tempting it would be once you got to that kind of weight to say, "fuck it, I don't care anymore" and let everything go to hell.
I think a lot of this is a failure of the medical system. We're not aggressive enough in dealing with obesity. We still have this naive idea that people can be trusted to take care of themselves and eat and exercise right. Because that strategy is clearly working. It's not like we're surrounded by fucking whales or anything.
why would you start a thread like this? so we can dog pile a fat guy? I just saw another thread where you made a joke about someone's dead friend. This thread is in the appropriate section. It's something you should consider doing.
LOL sounds like such a nice idea, if only they could enforce it.
In Canada, we have a public health care system. There are some good things about it, and some not so good. There is definitely a lot of abuse of the system resulting in incredible amounts of wasted money. What I'm saying is in such a system, the health care system should have the right to refuse treatment to people who don't even give a fuck about their health and don't try in the slightest to do something about it. Unless they're willing to pay for it.
TBH, I used to consider myself somewhat of a liberal, but the more I see of public health care, the more disillusioned I get.
