I know some very large people who probably eat better and work out more then 90% of the people here. If you honestly think that larger people are simply larger because they eat junk food and are lazy then you are a complete fucking idiot.
Are they large enough that they would require TWO fucking seats on an airplane? You guys keep saying this, but none of you make the claim that these 'friends' would ever need two seats. We all know the difference between someone who is big, but solid and healthy, probably like these people you describe, and someone who is 450 pounds because they eat too much and watch CSI 24 hours a day. The ratio of people who are large enough to require two seats, and actually LIVE a healthy lifestyle, compared to those who require the extra seat because they are lazy is something liiiiiike... 0:~ Because they just don't exist.
I've never, in my entire life, met someone who lives a healthy lifestyle, and is so fat that they would take up TWO seats of ANYTHING. I know plenty of people who are fat and blame their genes, but do absolutely nothing about it, and I do know of ONE case in my personal life that supports most the idea that obesity is primarily a result of a poorly-chosen lifestyle.
One of my good friends through high school has that there 'fat gene' you guys keep calling a disability, through high school, he was an easy 350+ pounds and possibly DID require two seats on a plane (he managed just fine in a movie theatre though). 7 years later, he's working out, still big, at around 250, but there's no way he would ever need a second seat ANYWHERE. His change in lifestyle brought him down to a healthier size, despite his genetics. Genetics are an EXCUSE for lazy people who eat too much.
Get off your fucking ass and lose the weight, or suffer the consequences of your lifestyle decisions. Being fat is NOT a disability.
That all being said, I don't fly enough that I give two shits whether fat people should have to pay for two seats. If you ask me, it should be based on the total weight that you are bringing onto the plane, regardless of how many seats you need. More weight = higher cost to the airline, so it's only fair that we would be charged per pound (or kilogram I suppose here in Canada)
Captain Planet is gey.
Water, Fire, Earth, Wind, Heart???
These forces are supposed to combine to create Captain Planet?
Those forces combine to create a soaking, boiling mudstorm on Valentine's Day.
