Fat people should be taxed extra to pay for stuff like this.

actually scientific studies using complex datasets show that fat people are fat not because of overeating or genics.... but because someone called them fat when they were a kid. So people who call people fat should pay the tax.

And a Big Mac everyday isn't stupid? Thats it! Scales at every restaurant and grocery store. If you dont need it... you cant buy it. Prohibition on food since we think other people should pay for our mistakes.

I pay enough in taxes already and these type of ambulances are paid for by my tax dollars.

To me a big Mac often makes my day when I'm feeling a little down.
Not everyone is neurotic over a few extra pounds.
Hey fatso, you are not paying your fair share for using more of everything than normal people do. It would do you good to waddle to the hospital instead of cruising in a custom ambulance made just for you.

I have read about a study that reached similar conclusions about stupid people.

That must have been a miserable childhood for you.

Actually genius you're asking everybody who doesn't need a fat wagon to pay extra. You sound like an alcoholic. Realizing you have a problem is the first step.BTW the chubby chasing ambulances wont be for people with a "few" extra pounds.

When I feel down, I pet my cats. Imagine how down you will feel when you have a massive heart attack because you eat that junk knowing full well that you have a weight problem.

I know a woman who was so obese, that it took SIX firemen and a lift to get her in the ambulance.
Now that's using a lot of man power and tax dollars!

That kind of fuel stinks. At least when you use vegetable oil it smells like a chinese restaurant.

Thanks for the kind words Catman Dave.
I shed a tear in gratitude.
You have a kind and gentle soul.
But I've always been heavy set, even as a child and despite what the culture says its unrealistic to think that everyone can look a certain way or weigh a certain weight.
Its a recipe for vanity and arrogance and looking down on people for things they can't control.

It depends on what you mean by a few pounds?

Without getting personal, if you weigh over 300 pounds you will have serious health issues like diabetes that could really affect your quality of life.

If you weigh over 350 you could be subject to a heart attack or stroke.

Not everyone on this forum is cruel. But it sounds like you could have issues with your weight and you might need to modify your eating habits and how much you eat.
