Laugh? Cry? Fucked if I know.

My first reaction was to laugh. I had to think again.

WTF? Really? Damn, I’m strong for just driving straight past that McDonalds today, even though I fancied a Big Mac. Yeah.

The logic and ‘science’ in the article is comical in itself. But it was completely eclipsed by the comments that followed it:

Trolling, right?

I wish I could be sure.

  1. Doubt the cunt was trolling, people are fucking mad. It’s like “little Hitler disease” is contagious.

    Brighton. It’s genuine.

    Salt is the New Junkies’ dream too –

    The last paragraph will make you rush out and stock up. We could all be salt pushers outside schools soon. ‘Hey Kid, want something to liven up that bag of chips?’

    Actually it’s simple. You like something, I don’t, therefore you are addicted to the thing I don’t like because if you weren’t you’d be like me and avoid it. I hate marzipan. Detest the stuff. Therefore anyone who likes marzipan is a marzipan addict. It’s an easy game to play.

    BTW, I note you have jumped a few places in the Scottish blog list. Whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it right.

    Probably not. There’s far, far more of these sort of people out there than anyone would ever think…

    Doubt it’s trolling. This is the if-only-Princess-Diana-were-here Mainly Fail we’re talking about.

    Side effects of too little nicotine, alcohol, fat and salt in the diet.

    Something I have not heard for ages, How are the fuckwits doing trying to ban Caffeine drinks over there?

    Last year or so, they were trying to ban the likes of Red bull, but since then nothing. DON’T trust these arseholes when they go quiet, it means they think they are onto something and do not want to rock the boat at this stage of planning.

    I am diabetic, started as type 2 but I am now on 2 types of insulin 3 times daily, am I a fat bastard?, no, it is a hereditary thing as cousins and relations on my late mothers side of the family have suffered with it for many years. It is the usual story, people jump on the band wagon knowing nothing about the condition and think that because people eat lots of “bad” food; ergo diabeties, in some cases maybe, but many normal thinking ( perhaps not in the U.K. ) would be surprised at how many ex athletes become diabetic and it has nothing to do with junk food. It is an enormously complex malaise and as usual ignorant journalists who have no ethics other than to sensationalise a serious condition write crap about something no scientist yet completely understands.

  9. I’m type 2 as well, have been for a long time. I’ve got a bit of “middle aged spread” (so to speak) but I’m not by any stretch of imagination a “fat bastard”. As Johnny says the reasons behind diabetes are not as straightforward as people think. I think the “all diabetes is caused by obesity” rhetoric is just a smoke screen, trying to hide the fact that what we eat is full of additives and preservatives which are bad for us on several levels.

  10. “First they came for the drinkers, and I did not speak out—because I was not a drinker;

    Then they came for the smokers, and I did not speak out—because I was not a smoker;

    Then they came for the motorists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a motorist;

    Then they came for the dog owners, and I did not speak out—because I was not a dog owner;

    Then they came for the fat people, and I did not speak out—because I was not fat;

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
