I know as a society we are...in a word..."fat." Just spend a day at the beach or the pool and you will
Disney is not the only one with problems with wide loads. The new Harry Potter adventure in Orlando, has a ride that will not fit someone who weighs 265 pounds and over. I know, crazy right. The real crazy thing is, that person insists that most HP fans are that size. Really? Let me go look in the mirror. ... Nope. Unless I have a fun house mirror. Let me go weigh myself just to be sure. ...Nope. And I promise, both feet were on the scale and I wasn't holding on to anything! This person says that they should design the rides accordingly. Okay, yes one third of our children and adults are obese, but if they make the ride according their size and proportions that means the other 2/3 of the population will not be able to ride the rides, because they would not be safe. And don't even get me started on airline seats.
Are we getting too fat? Is it right and logical to make those kind of changes? What do yo think?
