We had such problems with the "nonsense" in the original thread that it had to be locked, but we have no problem posting these threads?

Re: Illegitimate Offspring of the Obesity Thread

The problem wasn't "nonsense" in the original thread. The problem was a circular thread with a discussion that was rapidly degenerating into nastiness and snide comments.

I thought that as long as I was re-washing plastic baggies and didn't have a huge TV, I was set for life. Didn't know there was a whole other side to things...

Uhh, I mean I steal them from the park and the neighbor's yard. In fact, we used to live ina tiny old house, work down at the mill for 18 hours a day, and drink tea without sugar, or milk, or tea! Cue the Monty Python musc...

Emmanuel Kant was a real piss-ant who was very rarely stable...
