I see a lot of obese people in tiny cars like Geo Metros, Hyundai Accents, etc. When they sit in it, it looks like the shocks and tires are about to burst.

I asked an obese guy why he has a subcompact that he can barely fit in, and he said it was because of its fuel economy. SMH ... Really?? Wouldn't it be better to just lose 150 lbs than sit in a sardine can with 4 tires? That spare tire he's carrying is probably why he was getting bad fuel economy in the first place

Do you really NOT know that 150 lbs actually has almost zero affect on MPG for an auto or is your issue really with "obese people" in general??

It's quite obviously the latter.

Another I need to feel good about myself thread.

I want to know what's up with all the fat people driving SUVs.

I guess between that family size bag of Ruffles and getting home to watch crap television aka Duck Dynasty they could be living an active lifestyle.

I am not light and getting into my old '82 Corolla always felt like I was putting it on like a jacket.
