It is a mixed up world. The two most popular Australians are the lovely Olivia who is from England and ol' Mel Gibson who is American


We're a confused people.

Our head of state was born and lives in England.

Our Prime Minister thinks he's the Governor of the 51st state.

Julian McMahon from Nip and Tuck is the son of an ex Prime Minister.

When Julians dad was PM, Helen Reddy was singing I Am Woman and wanted to be the first female US President.

Now it seems you're going to replace the son of an old president with either the wife of an old president, a Kenyan or a cross dressing New York Mayor.

Of course Rupert Murdoch runs everything anyway and he was Australian once.

As for football - Australians used to play all codes bar Gridiron.

Now as nannystatedom descends across the Western world, destroying our civilisation before either the commies or moslem jihadists get even close, our footballers are busy making public service announcements on all that's good and wholesome and rehearsing their role model roles.

They are far too busy being model citizens to play sport.

Wait Mandrake, I think the song you reference was sung by a lovely lesbian from the US, I forget her name.

That's the point, isn't it. People who have the information post it or modify it and it becomes more current, or accurate. If you posted that she was raised by wolves someone wold change it to be correct. Yes you can change accurate information for lies, but it won't last too long. I have seen people blast others for linking to any site. It's not much harder than modifying a Wiki.

Actually, the point was that I was joking.

What if someone was fat but got their stomach stapled and looked skinny but was really a fatty in a skinny body, would they still be able to spread the obesity? I can picture the old woman in a chair on a pateo in Alabama drinkin' shine "gotta drink this to avoid that Ooobesity".

Two years ago, I was overweight, working with a woman who was obese.

She had her stomach stapled and put on more weight.

I decided my shows would sell better if I lost weight so I did the diet and exercise thing - it worked.

But I still feel fat!

See, I'm the opposite, I am new to the fat world and I don't realize how much of a wreck I am until I see photos and them I'm shocked. The good news is I got a new doctor who put me on some medication that seems to be helping with the pain so I may get to start walking some.

What exactly is your (I don't want to say problem, injury? affliction? infirmity? )? How long has this been going on and how much have you gained. I know some/most Doctors just want to keep you doped up. And I also know meds can make you gain weight.

I like to take a natural approach. Not into drugs (unless of course, you can inhale em...lol) and I don't like doctors in general (they killed Both of my parents, but that's another story) and most of them are UNHEALTHY. (Long hours, lot of pressure, stress at home because the wife never gets to spend time, etc. A lot of them SMOKE and even more HAVE BAD DIETS and pay no attention to their own health!) The only time I would rely on a doctor is if I needed a surgery or some serious medical attention. But I would NEVER rely on a doctor for health advice!!! Are you on a rehab program? Has your doctor noticed/commented on your weight gain? Did you say, gee doc, since I have had this I’ve gained X amount of weight, what’s up with that?

Let me ask you this, Since you have had this and you obviously have a lot less mobility now, have you been eating more (junk? fast, processed food?) The more I know the more I can figure out how to help you. You (and anybody else!) can PM me if you ever need any health tips.

So, you thinking what makes you so smart Justin? Who are you?

Truth is I’m nobody. I am not a doctor or medical professional. I am just a healthy person, that’s all. I am going to be 48 years old in a few days and yet I am still active and have NEVER been sick. Sure I caught a cold here and there but I have never needed bed rest or been admitted to a hospital. (Easy now! I can hear you say, yeah what about a mental hospital…lol) I am 6’3” and weigh between 185 and 195, sometimes less depending how much bicycle riding I do. I can still ride 100 miles in under 5 hours. I can still do a forward two and one half somersault off a one-meter diving board. I regularly ride through the streets of NYC on my bike and I ride 18 miles one way to the D’Lite office. And when I work at the U S Open, I ride there (18 miles, next to Shea stadium) then work 12 –13 hours, on my feet in the blazing sun, and get on my bike and ride back home. Point is, I am able to do these things because I eat right, stay in shape and take care of my self. Besides all of that I do other things as well. And I only tell you this so you can understand where I am coming from. And so you will feel comfortable talking to me if you need help. I’m all natural, and have never had any “work” done. (Don’t get me started on that one.)

I have nothing against Fat people. I have a crush on four of the hottest chicks on TV, right now. The GLAMAZONS! Are they FAT? YES! Are they slobs? NO! Being fat is one thing, being a slob is another!

Here’s the difference.

Glamazons: fat, true. But they are real and are happy with whom they are and thus beauty and confidence shine through! Love them!

Kirsty Alley: Slob! Tries to pitch poison and the lie and hide behind creative photography in her commercial for Jenny Craig! All LIES, All BS and she didn’t lose that much weight! Um, see I can eat chocolate cake!!! Have you called Jenny yet? Yeah, I called her…a Con artist!

If you ever want any help or just want someone to talk to about getting back into shape, you can call me anytime!

Justin, you wrote

"I call them SLOBS.
Not the ones with REAL medical conditions, but the everyday slob who will not do anything to help themselves. Eat S. and yet wonder why they are "gaining" a few pounds"

Now in the above post you suggest that if the woman is cute and fat then she is not a slob. but if she promotes a product for dieting that in your oppinion does not work, then she is a slob.

and you also intend to help all of us poor fat slobs to be more like you.
wow that is so generous of you, as long as we don't cramp your style with the ausie "chicks"

what do you propose? do we call you when we have an urge to eat a twinkie?

I don't know you personally but if I had to make an oppinion based on just these few post's I have read from you I would say you are a narcissistic and stuck in the 70's (yeah woman still love being called chicks) ego-maniac, but I would not think it wise to so quickly jump to conclusions.
but you seem to be able to conclude simply on ones weight the value of a person. Slob or one of you...

this thread started out on why the word fat was now considered a four letter word. it is not the word itself it is the narrow minded people who use it to describe more than weight.

So, now what you are doing is attacking me personally!? I NEVER called YOU any names. But yet, I'll still be glad to help even you

Some of my posts were tongue and cheek. But, I guess I hit a nerve, hmmm.

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!


Btw: Calamari (deep fired) is fattening.

I certainly don't hate you because you are beautiful,

you did hit a nerve, but not because of my weight, hmmm...

and as far as helping me is concerned you already have (I use the d'lights in almost every show) so thanks for what ever it is you did to make them available to me.

oh and fried Calamari is also delicious

Oh the name calling part was added to your post after I wrote my response, please re-read my post at no time do I call you a name I mearly suggested that one could jump to the conclusion from your post's. I was making the point that it is wrong to judge others based solely on first impressions weather they be written or simply by one looks.

Ok, I'm not offended. Besides, you're kinda halh right, anyway...lol

Yes I am a N. word. I'm a LEO - sorry, it's in my DNA. And I am stuck in the seventies, class of '78!

Especially these days. There is a lot of retrospect about the summer of '77 here in NYC. Yankees, black out and Son of Sam.

Still a little bit of hippie in me...lol

Hippies are slobs.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.
