[quote]Isn't obese[/quote]
Although technically true....

[quote]From 1999–2000 through 2017–2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.[/quote]

...still feel you should add "*YET" in the end 😉

Checklist
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@9520,vetguy1991] Lol, yup. 🙂
Yulianna · 22-25, F
[@9520,vetguy1991] better than chekist!
JoeyFoxx · 51-55, M
No way! So.., I’m normal?

Who knew?
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@802348,JoeyFoxx] I suspected as much.
Ksmile14 · F
Exactly. Thank you. ❤️
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@1073303,Ksmile14] You're very welcome my non-obese, non-racist, non-McDonald's customer! 🤣🤣🤣
KiwiBird · 31-35, F
Define a 'normal guy'....You have just excluded half the population. Add the Confederacy supporters and the Racists doesn't leave much room for the Fast Food brigade....

[@521524,KiwiBird] What does the 1% refer to?
KiwiBird · 31-35, F
[@1360,sarabee1995] [quote]Some outlaw motorcycle clubs can be distinguished by a "1%" patch worn on the colors. This is said to refer to a comment by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, implying the last one percent were outlaws[/quote]
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@521524,KiwiBird] And proudly so, I guess. 🙄

Thanks.
MartinTheFirst · 22-25, M
americans suffer from reversed racism (aka racism directed towards white people)
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@521524,KiwiBird] Thank you. So true. Another topic for another time.
MartinTheFirst · 22-25, M
[@1360,sarabee1995] WHAT?! you guys are nuts
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@336516,MartinTheFirst] Lol. This was a light-hearted post about a meme that simply pointed out that not all Americans fit certain stereotypes.

The issues of Racism, Reverse Racism and White Privilege are important and legitimate things to discuss, but probably a bit more thoughtfully.

🇺🇦🌻🇺🇸 i am sure this is true... most people, most places, are not extremists, not even mildly so.

but i think your sample, elite university and elite Service, may not be truly representative. 🤗❤
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@156315,Yulianna] Yeah, okay, good point. 🤔

And my peers are all well educated, driven, fit, patriotic people. Again, not a complete cross section. 🤷‍♀️
Yulianna · 22-25, F
[@1360,sarabee1995] 🤗 your original point still has validity.
ozgirl512 · 26-30, F
Funny how poverty, lack of education and extremism tend to live under the one roof... Could it possibly be related to the system🤔
Yulianna · 22-25, F
[@516864,ozgirl512] [@521524,KiwiBird] the leaders of extremist cells tend to be well educated but disaffected middle classers, who are working out failed parental relationships.

the canon fodder are generally poor, poorly educated, and highly impressionable. also, easily replaceable...
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@156315,Yulianna] The "canon fodder" in nearly any conflict could be described this way. Right?

[@516864,ozgirl512] [@521524,KiwiBird] [@156315,Yulianna] There is also money behind all these extremist movements (left & right). Could be "second generations", I'm not sure. But not all are poor.
Yulianna · 22-25, F
[@1360,sarabee1995] 🇺🇦🌻🇺🇸 yes, of course, historically.
PinkPunk · F
how about this ?

sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
[@397571,PinkPunk] Thank goodness this is not how America is.
