Not Afraid Yet? Me Neither.

It seems the appetite for fear is as strong as ever. Obesity is high fashion fear right now.

Does anyone really believe that "more than half of New Zealand adults are overweight or obese"? Words like 'crisis', 'epidemic' and 'danger' are spread like five types of cheese on a triple deep pizza in these reports. In Britain they're expecting 12 million obese adults by 2010. I have a hunch that the worry itself will usher a few off this mortal coil.

What strikes me is how well the human body functions even when carrying a few extra pounds.

Psalm 139:14 (kjv)
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

I reckon we're not that bad.
