Americans consumed more than twice as much high fructose corn syrup per person as in 1980 and remained the fattest inhabitants of the planet, although Mexicans, Australians, Greeks, New Zealanders and Britons are not too far behind. At the same time, we spent more of our lives than ever â about 8 1/2 hours a day â watching television, using computers, listening to the radio, going to the movies or reading. http://chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4404074.html What will we look like in another 50 years? A big ball with a head, hands and feet? I was somewhat surprised the Germans, Slavs, and Scandinavians didn't make the Fatso list. Guess they send all the Chubistas over here. And speaking of Chubistas, I grew up among Mexican-Americans and I was 30 before I first saw a fat one. I think it would be interesting to see a fat Oriental. I hope I live long enough to see that. I feel sorry for some older toilets. What will the toilets of the future be like? Will toilet paper needs put a strain on our forests?
