Talking heads really are anons
What an era
@Sam Southern - TN haha yeah, that's great. There really is a pipeline that pushes messages up.
Psycho killer, fa fa far far far, better, run run run ruuunnn awaaaaayyyy! Oh oh
You see a lot of fat whites in Florida. In fact I saw an entire fat family today. Fat mom, fat son and fat daughter
It’s definitely a thing with the poor
Obesity has really robbed the working classes of a lot of dignity
Make fat shaming great again
Yeah, in West Virginia almost everybody is obese. But to be fair when you're poor and unhealthy food is easily available and affordable, it can be a tough temptation to fight.
Especially if both parents have to work.
Which is generally the case for most families; lower and middle class.
I also blame the vapid consumer culture. Fiscal responsibility is possible on a single family income if you can plan ahead and not be suckered into buying every shiny new thing you see
I feel like a lot of poor people, even ones who aren’t inherently low IQ can fall into this trap
Lord knows I’ve been there
Vices like drugs and alcohol play into that as well
@Grossly Incandescent Many of those new shiny things are necessary to function in a technologically advanced society. For example, you literally cannot function or be productive today without a smart phone
We have more expenses than ever before and wages are stagnant or decreasing.
I remember going to Golden Corral in Tennessee as a child and being traumatized by the absolute size of the people
@Virgil good point, but in response to that I’ve had the same smart phone for about three years and have it paid off. Many in my situation would upgrade and lease the new more expensive model
Golden Corral is ground zero in my area
Dude everytime I think of that restaurant I immediately think of poverty
It deeply saddens me
Just like Dollar Stores
@Virgil think more along the lines of a new flatscreen, leasing the latest model car, a new xbox. Shiny things that can’t be used to help you get out of poverty
for me it’s gross obesity
Things like phones are seen as status symbols as well.
Like new Nikes or expensive handbags
Even just leasing in general, my senior I took a personal finance class and that's turned me off of leasing/renting forever.
nothing like a trashbag full of popcorn shrimp
Saw someone on twitter say “women want free abortions and birth control but have iPhones”
