    Abbott would have no Costello.

    Laurel would have no Hardy.

    Nikkerz would have no Animal God.

    Sure but I don't want to watch them while they eat.

    Nah, I equate it to watching a heroin addict shoot up. For some, excessive eating is habitual and an addiction. I have a tough time witnessing it.
    We attended a funeral recently and one of the church members was grossly obese and luck would have her sitting across the table from me. I lost count at full plate number 4. She was so obese, she couldn't even get her own food at the buffet and would ask others to bring her more. It was really a sad and disgusting sight.

    Listen. I'm husky and there are many times during the day that I'm not eating. Maybe a milk shake but definitely not eating.

    RM, you're right. Food is an addiction a lot of people have, and a hard one to break. During my time in the food service biz, one of my customers was Hometown Buffet- the people that came in there and the amount of food was staggering. The ones I can never forget were the ones who'd eat until they'd vomit, then go get more food- ugh!!!

    Milkshakes have something like 24,000 calories in them

    Interesting.

    Not too long ago my company had an off-site lunch/training thing. I showed up late. Most of the people were finishing up their plates. I walked up to the buffet line behind this fat guy coworker who was just ahead of me. "You've been through the line already I'm sure", I said, "anything good?"

    He looked at me all offended and maybe even a bit hurt saying, "I just got here. Right before you did. This is my first time through".

    I assumed he was doing his 2nd or maybe even 3rd lap around the track.

    But I was wrong to profile him.
