    just saw a comedian on comedy central over the weekend - some english guy - was talking about how a lot of people will blame their obesity on "glandular problems" - he asks what they take for that... Pies? haha

    well ... it was MUCH funnier when he said it - i swear

    Greetings, fellow tarheel!

    I'm guessing the joke loses something without the accent. Imagine trying to do Monty Python's cheese-shop sketch with a southern accent...

    I have good friend that has put on alot of wheight in the last few years. She says its hereditary and she probibly wont loose it. She said she has tried a bunch of difrent diets but none worked. :(
    I asked if she tried "just not eating" for a while? :D

    Maybe if she made potato batteries instead of cooking them that would help.:)

    I love this website. We go from Potato batteries to talking about fat people, funny thing is if you read the whole thread it's a perfectly logical progression =)

    You are going to need some sort of load for the potato battery, right?
