    Imagine you fall off of a cruise ship deep out in the Atlantic ocean. You are rescued by the Coast Guard and the national media reports your name and that you were saved because of your "300-pound girth"! That has got to be insulting though, I suppose, it is technically true. Poor guy!

    If he jumped off the ship as it says, doesn't that mean he was attempting to commit suicide? However, instead of sinking he was kept afloat by his great size. I thought fat was heavy. Wouldn't it have made him sink faster?:laugh:

    That's muscle that sinks. When I used to bodybuild in my 20's, I couldn't swim a lick. It took every ounce of energy I had to stay afloat.

    You would think that the ship would have at least made a cursory search for this man.

    Which is why it's so unwise to be very muscular. What if you fall off a cruise ship?

    Yeah!

    I'm not fat, I'm just preparing for the coming ice age, during which all of you skinny people will die off from lack of food, and after which will bring massive flooding due to melting snow and ice, thereby allowing me to stay afloat and survive while all you lucky skinny people, who somehow survived the ice and snow and lack of food, now drown in the water.

    Then, I'll be KING OF THE WORLD!!! MWOOHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
