Art: Have you been to Walmart and seen how many fat people there are nowadays? I am obese and even I notice it. There are a LOT of fat people. I think I remember reading that at least 50% of adults are obese? What are the chances that these obese people are going to make it to 84 years of age? The break even point? Diabetes and heart disease are common because of the number of obese people.

I never go to Walmart, but the photos of Walmartians are well circulated.

We have British friends who marvel at how "large" Americans seem to be.
