Fixed.

I usually respond with like "oh good for you, you're offended, want a gold star?"

Allow me to play Devil's advocate for a moment.

Obesity is associated with increased risks of cancers of the esophagus, breast (postmenopausal), endometrium (the lining of the uterus), colon and rectum, kidney, pancreas, thyroid, gallbladder, and possibly other cancer types.

Problem is, the way the person Emmers quoted put it, they seemed to think cancer was kind of, like, a guaranteed bi-product of being overweight. Always. No exceptions. Which ranks fairly high on the 'you're-a-dumbshit' scale.

Like, "Oh hey Johnny, how's it going? Have you put on some weight recently? Yeah? Well enjoy your supersized McTumors, whale-kin! Jabba, have you installed the MRI machine in the Rancor pit yet?! My mail order feeding-fetish instructional VHS has just arrived and when feeling for lumps I need to be able to tell the difference between what is a tumor and what is simply an undigested cat leg."

I got a bit sidetracked with that analogy. What I mean to say is that guy sounds like an asshole. An asshole who is confused as to the specifics of both cancer and fatness.

Not everyone who is fat has cancer and not everyone who has cancer is fat.

I'd go into the scientific evidence that being fat does not make you unhealthy but I don't feel like getting into it.

So I'll just leave this: Correlation is not causation.

Like I said, I was gettin' my Devil's advocate on.

And remember, these things aren't black and white. There's a difference between saying "obesity can potentially cause health problems" and "fatties get cancer".

I feel really bad for my girlfriend right about now. At 'that time' of the month, I sometimes (maybe a couple of times a year) get INSANELY depressed and easily offended/angry and quiet; usually if it happens while there's a lot of stress in my life. And now is one of those times.
The poor girl has already told me it's okay, but I'm still worried that I'm worrying her, and it's hard for me to explain it to her. I don't like realizing I'm getting way too snippy a second too late Dx I'm kinda glad she isn't complaining though, she just keeps telling me she loves me and that's that whenever I get worried about it.
Thankfully, she isn't coming over until next week, so I should be alright by then. But hoo boy if it hasn't screwed up our conversations so far.

If during your period you get depressed like that you may consider going on hormonal birth control, which if your doctor agrees with may help you out with the depression. That said, for folks WITH depression it can exaserbate that as it did with me.

I think that's more of a 'people on earth' thing, personally.

My aunt and uncle and half brothers are visiting today and tomorrow respectively. I got up and went to the kitchen to make a blackberry tart and some brioche buns...but my dad was selling some guy archery equipment.

The sooner he gets an actual shop, the better.

Definitely is-- sure, obesity increases risk and all that, but sadly some people subscribe only to the latter thought.

In the mean time, being sick sucks. I've only been awake maybe 2 or 3 hours and I've already gone through half a box of tissues. Ughhhh.

-sigh- been away with a hurt wrist, feeling better though it's going to be awhile before I am in tip top shape.

Currently trying to bait a residents cat so we can get her back home safely. She's an older cat that has spent all 10 years of her life indoors. But for an indoor cat she's quit a crafty Siamese. Or maybe stupid, I don't know. I had outdoor cats that were easier to catch because they knew they had to come when called or how to get in the house when they wanted.

Glad at least we haven't seen coyotes for months now.

AAAAANNNNDDD I just started a giant fire in the new toaster oven. First time I got blue flames though. Really hate black and decker toaster ovens. Never had issues like this with the small one. Well now I know why the instruction manual has a section on what to do encase of a flare up.
