Feed me, feed me

Growing up without cable TV and then living in a dorm for three years has left me with an incredibly low tolerance for televised news— it takes up to 20 minutes of exposure before I start vomiting, and I can only handle 45 minutes without blacking out. So it’s just not good for me when I hear Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America this morning warning about the latest medical study which warns “by 2048, all American adults would become overweight or obese.”

I look with some trepidation towards 2047, a dark year in the country’s history, when the last few healthy people are dragged out of their mountain hideouts and pumped full of liposuctioned fat in order to meet expectations.
