OK but seriously guys....we joke, but he looks kind of normal. Most normal 40 year olds look about that size. 

 

You guys should kind of know - it's fine if you look like that now.  And if you don't yet, you probably will some day - and it's not so bad.  It's a constant battle and some decades are better than others. but for chicks - fat doesn't really hurt a guy at the end of the day.  There's no such thing as deal-breaker fat.

And that's exactly why this country has an obesity problem.

:doh1:  no, it's not. 

 

Pandemic obesity is not a result of a policy of acceptance.  :rolleyes:  

 

You don't want me to wax tolerant?  I don't want you to wax sanctimonious so let's just drop this now.

 

I will give you that the fact he looks normal is a sign of the pandemic.  but whatever the hell you were trying to say -- you didn't say THAT.  And I'm not being deliberately obtuse here.

he looks like he should be driving around Hunterdon in a pick up.  Or at the hunt club cook out flippin' burgers and acting like a sexist pig.

 

I guess what I'm saying is he just looks like your average run of the mill drunk. :evil:

Excuse me, but I take offense to that statement. I happen to reside in Hunterdon, unfortunately, and in the past, owned a Dodge Dakota, are you trying to say I'm a fat drunk?!?!

Touchy much? I live in Hunterdon as well and I thought PK's reference was funny.  A while back I was sitting at a table next to the bar and some guy sat at the bar and all he wanted to talk about was the back 40.  He found folks to talk with. :lol:

Gotta admit, I thought this Lindros pic was a photochop.  I didn't think that was real.  That pic is almost as shocking as when I saw Shawn Chambers on the ice at the '95 reunion.

 

As for the whole obesity thing...let's face it, lots of reasons behind it.  Terrible portion control, lots of bad food that's easy to get (and cheap...fast food and junk food are very affordable, but so is healthy food), parents who pass their bad eating habits onto their kids (that's the most annoying one, the big fat mom or dad filling up the shopping cart with sweets and other crap for his or her big fat kids...heaven forbid you might look in the mirror and think about setting a better example), lack of education about making good food choices, complete lack of self-respect and discipline...and yes, in some cases, bad genetics that make some people predisposed to being heavier than most.  Those people I feel for. 

 

Don't eat crap, don't eat too much, and get some exercise, and chances are, even if you're not rail-thin or ultra-ripped as result, you'll at least be in decent shape.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

But seriously -- I should have added "with a Flyers logo on the gate."  -- my bad

 

 

 

and my most favorite blog ever:  http://summertomato.com/  I went through the whole farm share thing - HAD to eat vegetables since I shelled out $600+ for them.  Now I'm an addict.  Yes I'm one of those farmers market seasonal sustained eating assh*les :uni: What's worse having the sheep and the chickens and being in Hunterdon - I'm just such a tragic Joel Salatin reading locavore comical arch-type...  THEN i lost my baby weight (yes my daughter IS 10.) and then I discovered Summer Tomato.  Soooo much better than every freaking training diet, clean eating and all that crap.  I just can't think that much about food.  This is totally second nature -- FIRST nature. Truly I do not think about it. I love Summer Tomato because she find all the scientific data that confirms what you know - what your body tells you.  And she loves to rag on Dr Oz the freaking crack pot - I HATE that sell-out with his quackery.

I'm not really upset, I was being sarcastic, but I guess that didn't really come through. I'm not even a fan of the place in which I live.

Imo, Hunterdon is the worst county in the state when you're talking about things to do, aside from nature, trees are nice and so is the ken lockwood gorge, but at the same time, the closest movie theater is 20 miles from my house. I mean, dammit, they even bulldozed the one in Flemington for a new CVS and PNC, bastards. Now there may not even be 2 theaters in the whole damn county. Between that and the fact that everyone who's family moved here from elsewhere at some point in their life has a 95% chance of being a snobby douche, I can't stand hunterdon county.

They can take all that wealthy this, healthiest that, least polluted county bs. Don't care. I would give all that for a decent deli, a non-chain restaurant that isn't awful and a chinese place that delivers. BUT DON'T CALL ME FAT DAMMIT! lol.

I'm in Hunterdon (Annandale).  I rather like it myself, though I agree, wish there were more movie theaters!  For me it's Hackettstown, Bridgewater, or Phillipsburg, and none of those are terribly close.  But that one in Flemington HAD to go.  It was trapped in 1975. 

 

Lots of nice farms and trails.  If you like nature, you could do a hell of a lot worse.

I will always miss the Flemington Racetrack, especially before it was paved.  Man I have so many great memories of going there with my Dad and afterwards the white t-shirts we wore would be a brown-orange color from all the dirt that was thrown in the air during the race.

We're practically neighbors then, though I'm only in Annandale in mailing address, I'm really Clinton Twp. Nature is great here, that you cannot deny. I will say I love the bike trail from HB to Califon. It goes for like 15 miles total. Just hope that gas pipe, that is the reason that trail is maintained, doesn't explode, lol. I also don't understand why Clinton Twp thought now was the time to allow a giant gas pipe to be installed under a bunch of homes. You can see them putting it in by Payne Rd off 31 before you get to Lilac. I feel awful for anyone already underwater in their mortgage in those areas. I, for some reason, can't foresee a gas pipe under or next to their home helping them out any, lol. I could probably go on for days as to why I dislike this area, which has as much to do with the people as it does the lack of things to do around here.


And yeah, all those theaters are about equidistant from Annandale, just about 20 mins drive with no traffic. I just don't understand why I can't have lunch delivered to my home/office, have more than 1 option for post midnight dining or have a bar that isn't terrible. We don't even have a bowling alley. I'm pretty sure it's requirement to have a bowling alley in order to be small town in the US, just not in this one....

 

I will always miss the Flemington Racetrack, especially before it was paved.  Man I have so many great memories of going there with my Dad and afterwards the white t-shirts we wore would be a brown-orange color from all the dirt that was thrown in the air during the race.

Tearing that place down was a travesty and I still hope that whole plaza burns down one night. Did it have to be a Wally World? Ugh.

Edit: Sorry I took this real off topic. At least it was a fairly off topic thread, right?
