    Why are Americans (the wealthiest country in the whole world) so overweight

    Add in all the Southern comedians. :lol:

    Also let me add that although my post, as I reread it, seems awfully belittling of the South but trust me it was tongue and cheek. There are lots of good people here and the scenery of Tennessee is beautiful but its simply the culture and a lot of the ideas that I disagree with that make me feel like an outsider (I'm not a real religious person, I'm liberal minded in a lot of ways, and as GA can tell you over in the History forum I'm not a "The South will rise again" sort of fellow either). So although I disagree with a lot of the cultural aspects of the South I know that not everyone are bumbling idiots like some want to make it seem (Beverly Hillbillies anyone) and that's why comedians like Larry the Cable Guy I don't understand. There is a lot of good in the South but still overall I feel a bit out of place. I just wanted to address that real quick before anyone got the wrong idea about my thoughts about the South. :wink2:

    In addition to what Sick said, we are largely based around long route transportation. Most people live miles away from work, school, etc. and they are forced to drive. Also add in the fact that most people have jobs that are low physical activity jobs and you have another reason, but I think you hit it right on the head Sick its because we have money because of our cushier jobs and can afford cars, more food, etc.

    You know when people are eating deep fried ice cream there is a major problem.:lol:

    However I don't think its because we're all lazy though, I think its more of a lifestyle thing.

    Not intended to offend anyone so PLEASE take it with a grain of salt if you disagree:

    Things I dont get:

    - why a majority of people think all cubans are off the bannana boat

    - rap music (except Ice-T of all people)

    - why people designate certain religions as cults when all religions are basically the samething...So if its your 'religion' its not a cult, but if its someone elses, or its something you dont believe in at all, it is?...I dont get that.

    - how people can fire employee's during tough economic times just because profits have dipped some so they can still go home and enjoy their 8th expensive sports car and fly in their private jet.

    - why certain people feel the need to wake up in the morning and just ruin other peoples day....just because it makes them feel superior to be able to do that.

    - why people can't understand that 'pay it forward' is real and not just a movie....and if the world would really follow that it'd be a better place for everyone.

    - (last one I promise) Jimmy Fallon... I have seen some of his stuff and I just dont get what the appeal is and why people think he's funny.

    Things I don't get:

    - root beer

    - people's fascination with extra spicy food, not just ordinary spicy food... food so spicy that it makes your crap burn.

    - why it takes the pitcher in baseball 3 minutes to throw the ball for each pitch

    - rap

    - death metal... especially the deep growling vocals.

    - healthy pizza

    - At the supermarket, standing in line for a longer amount of time in the express lane than a regular lane

    - male cheerleaders

    Here's one I just don't get

    Super Mario 2

    Seriously who thought that game was a good idea? It's not even a real Mario game, it's just a copy of another game called Toki Doki Panic but with Mario graphics. Worst idea ever.

    Actually, as a former blogger who couldn't maintain the discipline necessary to keep it up, I welcome Twitter because it's a lot easier to keep that current because of the 140-character limit.

    The "windows" key on my keyboard.

    The size of the pit in an avocado.

    People who won't use a bluetooth headset while driving and using their phones.

    People who buy cheap can openers.

    People with dull knives in their kitchens.

    12/13-episode seasons. When the **** did that become acceptable?

    People who don't get why my grey cat is named "Earl."

    People who don't get why my orange cat is named "Crush."

    Passive-aggressive drivers. In an ideal world they'd be the ones with dull knives in their kitchens, and they'd all cut their ****ing jugular veins chopping an onion.

    thought of some more...

    people that drive with their parking lights on...serisously, you took the effort to turn them on, just make one more click and get the headlights on.

    people that park with their headlights on at night. If you're parked on the side of the road at night, turn your freaking headlights off and turn on your PARKING LIGHTS.
