They're showing the programme on television tonight about the fattest man in the UK: he can pack away 29,000 calories a day.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

That'll be this chap then. Nine curries and 40 pints? I never understand how they can afford that sort of lifestyle, apart from anything else. You couldn't do it on disability benefit, surely?

Great Britain's largest person is 700lbs? You have it good. A couple times a year, we'll have a story here in the states about some 1,000lb person who needs to needs to get to a hospital, but can't get through the door, so emergency services has to knock down a wall of their house and hoist them out using a crane. Welcome to the United States of McDonald's.

I think the dangers of obesity would be best displayed by airing this person's autopsy on television. I want to see that 8lb, black, fatty liver.

There is a (relatively) new section in von Hagens' Bodyworlds exhibit showing body slices of super-obese bodies vs. non-super-obese bodies. If I remember correctly, they're lateral (?... head-to-toe is what I mean) slices so that you can see the effects of the fat on the internal organs. No doubt seperately plastinated organs will follow along shortly.

Except that John Candy was losing weight, wasn't unhappy and his career hadn't stalled... but yes, otherwise exactly like John Candy.

Indeed he did, I hear the crematorium are down to the bottom half of his one remaining leg and his relatives are working double shifts to pay off the gas bill for the man's funeral.

Some of you may have wondered such things as "How can a person on food stamps afford that much food?" or, "Who are the 'enablers' bringing them food?"

While I can't speak for all fat people, in my sister's case, there were dozens, if not hundreds of enablers. Carol Yager (Fat Carol, to everyone who knew her), was very popular in our small-ish community (~25,000 people). She had more friends than anyone else I've ever met, and her life was one big non-stop party. Each day would see many visitors, who would usually come equipped with a bottle of wine, a couple of joints, a bucket of chicken, a pizza, or whatever, to share. Up until her last, she always managed to have one or more boyfriends. Whatever she may have lacked in physical appearance, she more than made up for in personality. To know her was to love her. She was very intelligent and witty, and could make anyone laugh at any time. People just wanted to be around her, and now that she's gone, she is truly missed. You can mock her all you want, but Carol packed more life into her 33 years than most of you will see in 80.

To tell you the truth I'd never heard of this woman until now.
She may have laughed in public, but I'm quite sure she was deeply depressed inside. Thus she got very fat.

The thing that disturbs me most is your denial. You claim that everyone loved her, shared food with her etc. Well congratulations, you should hold yourself responsible for her death. Being a extremely big boned person I will asume that, as many overweight people do, she craved acceptance. Here comes another sad fact, her friends were only there for the whole 'fat Carol' hypeand fame. She probably felt that if she lost the weight she would lose her friends to become just your average fat blokette. People clung to Carol for what little fame she had and in the end, it was that fame that killed her.

You call yourself friends and family? You may as well have stabbed her in the heart!

Agreed Windsor. I also note Terry's name was absent from those who looked after her while she was at her most ill. So much for being a loving brother. It's all very well claiming how heart broken you were at her death but what did you do for her when she was alive? Were you one of those embarrassed by her?

Don't believe everything you read on daWeb. Reporters, etc put whatever spin they want to on thier articles. Carol spent her last days surrounded by those who loved her the most, and as for trying to keep her away from what she loved, might as well try and stop a train wreck. In the end, Carol was a full-grown adult, and no one could stop her from doing what she wanted to do. It was only the last couple of years when she went rapidly downhill, and, at the same time, began to be exploited by people with thier own agendas. Meanwhile, Carol loved all the attention. and did whatever she could to further that end. She was never ashamed of herself, so how can I be ashamed of her? I just thought you all should know that she was loved in spite of her 'flaws'.
