    First, why can't the British use real measures?

    This is just...I don't know what to say.

    This woman is a true testament to the wonders any individual can accomplish. If only more people had her initiative.

    I hope this doesn't start to pose a health concern.

    What's really bad is that American tax payers are paying her bills, including her food.

    Man! That's just disgusting. I know an in-home care giver who until recently was tending to a morbidly obese woman (500+ lbs). That woman is incapable of tending to her own personal hygiene. I sure wouldn't want that job!!!

    Reminds me of Homer Simpson wanting to gain several hundred pounds so that he could be considered disabled and work from home.

    I think someone should call for a referendum to cut her off. 20,000 calories a day could easily feed ten non-idiotic people who need it more.

    On the plus side, this makes for a great calculus problem.

    Given her starting age, how soon would she have to die in order to consume fewer calories on her current diet of 21,000 cal/day than if she had lived to the median age for women in the U.S. while consuming 2,000 cal/day?

    I performed a quick hand calculation.

    Basically, as long as she dies before shes about 36 and a half years old, this is a net gain for society. She's 32 right now, and eating 21,000 calories each day. I think that's a reasonable goal for her, right?

    BTW, her sister is my age, and damned good looking. How can I get in touch with her...

    EDIT: OMG... ignore those "t" variables that are thrown in there. I'm so embarrassed. Her calorie consumption per year is a constant, not a linear function. The math is fine, I just had a "t dt" where it should only be a "dt."

    The British do use proper weights and measures; unfortunately you quoted the Daily Mail...

    You know...the picture of her on the scooter in the grocery store reminds me of when I went to Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago and saw a morbidly obese man in one of them. He stopped beside me, passed gas :-c~ with the most disgusting sound, looked at me and laughed, and then started rolling away again. I think some people have a problem and need help and some people are just really nasty.

    I just viewed your link and YIKERS; that woman already has a body mass the size of Jaba the Hut! How could she possibly feel sexier?

    The problem won't last long. Obesity kills.

    This is not the first similar case, I recall reading about other woman, her husband was helping her to get more fat.

    I am with Peng on that one.

    Let me get this right she is unemployed and gets social security disability ($2000 per month) because of her weight. I am unemployed and normal weight so I get nothing ($0 per month) from the government.

    Yeah, that sounds right. And she is this weight by choice, not because of some rare uncontrolable medical disorder.
