Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

For sure, ugly bob.

Lyon82,

True or false?:
Periodically, new studies are published in scientific journals that either modify or totally disprove the results of older studies that were also published in scientific journals.

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Lyon82, Those are well documented, well researched books that cite academic studies, maybe some of the ones you've read for fun. I googled "honey boo boo" and checked out the images that come up. While her mother is very fat, the little girl doesn't seem extremely fat to me. Maybe all the ...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Sorry, forgot. Books: Health at Every Size , by Linda Bacon. The Obesity Myth , by Paul Campos. Rethinking Thin: The New Science of Weight Loss--And the Myths and Realities of Dieting , by Gina Kolata. The End of Overeating , by David Kessler, has some good information. Health at Every Size has the ...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Lyon82, Thanks for taking the time to respond to my posts. I asked if you read books because, if you did, I wanted to recommend some, since this seems to be a topic you're interested in. I don't look down on people who don't read, but if it wasn't your thing, I wasn't going to bother. It's always in...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

No, sorry but the vast majority of Westerners with obesity problems (ie their glands still work) is because they make crap for choices in terms of what they put in their bodies. Constant consumption of convenience foods that has been processed to the point that it resembles a chem lab rather than s...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

glad to discuss underlying themes in episodes like these... Glad to be friends. We can be friends-- why temporary?? Temporary because I hardly ever post on forums, and I figured our convo would be a one-night thing. (Why do I feel dirty all of a sudden?) I watched the rest of that episode. I hate t...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

I understand that a lot of weird things happen in South Park just because. It's not all random, though, and it's not even mostly random. If it were, it would be called Family Guy. To quote Parker and Stone via Cartman in that one episode, "When I make jokes, they are inherent to a story! Deep, ...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Okay, thanks. One more question: the scene I keep reading about... the scene that features Michelle Obama kicking "fatass"'s ass... do you suppose that scene is meant to be an ironic statement about the Obamas' stance against bullying while heading a war against obese people? Or does it co...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Thanks for responding, ugly bob. I know what "raising the bar" means, but thanks for explaining that too. I've never seen the show they're making fun of. What makes that show degrading? The fact that fat people are featured on it, or the fact that the fat people who are featured on it beha...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

(...) Thank you for this post. There sure is a lot of whiners on this forum. On Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, IGN and other sites, people are raving about the episode. Whereas here, on the official South Park forum, almost everyone just complains. Some fans, huh? No one forces you to watch South Park,...

Re: *1605: Butterballs* Post-Air Discussion

I live in San Diego, and they got it perfect. I haven't laughed that hard at an episode of SP in a while. The air port? Perfect. The Gas Lamp--perfect. And now when I tell people I live in San Diego, they're going to think about jacking it, which is the best thing of all. On a totally unrelated note...
