That is still not how math works. A ratio is a ratio. You cant make something "significant" because you want to use absolute numbers without context.

But he won't go there either. The guy's a career whiner. Read his back posts and see where he can't stand living in Arizona, either.
You don't need to read my backpost to know I don't care for Arizona. I already said that on this thread.

You have been added to my ignore list, have a good day.

Colorado Fatsos = 1,122,162 (21.3%)
3. Mississippi Pop. = 2,991,207
Mississippi Fatsos =1,049,913 (35.1%)

Yes, I know its all percentages. However, If my assignment was to fix the biggest problem(Drain on resources, medical costs, etc), I probably wouldn't start with Mississippi.
Good point. Are these obesity numbers or overweight?
