"Then again, I have not seen a 'weight challenged' person on Star Trek. Maybe by stardate whatever they have solved that problem...or the automated food systems have insured no one is over weight! Careful what you wish for!" - tele


That's what I'm looking forward to. Every couple of years there is some big announcement about how they've found some magic pill or pharmaceutical that will cure obesity and how if if they just had enough grant money they'd have it all worked out. Tooting their own horn so to speak.

It's like cancer research where they announce "in another 10 years we'll have the cure!" My old boss used to laugh about it and say that it was just some researcher trying to drum up support for their research.

We'll see. At this stage of the game, closing in on 60 years of age, I'm not too worried about it.
