    I read this in the news and thought I'd share. I got a chuckle out of it, just thought it was interesting:

    isnt bmi based on muscle ratio rather than fatness? so i wouldnt say that fat people are dumber than thin ones but rather those who are more muscular are in fact smarter than those who arent.

    no, it's the other way around, stupid people become fat

    EDIT: to r1cky,[​IMG]

    it dosen't really factor in muscle or fat

    This is funny, but it's junk science. correlation doesn't equate to causation. It's like the flying spaghetti monster says:

    the drop in number of pirates has been inversly proportional to global warming! this means that the cause of global warming is the lack of pirates. more pirates!

    I heard the same thing, but instead of "pirates", it was "ninjas".

    I could have told them that without any experiments, just from my own narrow minded predigest ways [​IMG]

    Um, how does lazy come into the whole thing? What about fat hard-working people? Or lazy skinny people (that would be me)?

    I thought it was funny because it was a French science study linking fat people being stupid, then further going to say that 30% of America is fat, but not drawing in the final blank.

    Haha, French and Americans are so much like each other, its hilarious. I found it funny because an American news source published this, but I'm not quite sure whoever published it got the point of the article.

    Scientists have linked that anyone who believes everything they read on the Internet are 90% more likely to have their entire heads swallowed by a cobra.

    ^^^ [​IMG] That's beautiful!

    Anyway.. I come from (and live in) the state that brought you "Freedom Fries". I'm also of French ancestry, with the surname to prove it. It's not as crazy on the frog-hatin' front as it used to be around here, probably because the war ain't going so well, and turns out the French just might've been smart to stay out of the mess... not that any of us self-respecting patriots would admit it. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure there's no shortage of stupid people in either country... any country for that matter.

    well there might be some truth in it if they did the study on a larger scale of people...

    Tho, I can't come up with many really fat nobel price award winners [​IMG]

    Seriously! WHY GET FAT?! [​IMG] if i were about to get fat i would DO something about it. go out jogging, go to a gym etc. come on, it's much easier to get girls if you're at least... normal ;D

    and of course fat people get stupid. many of them do stupid things all day long like watch tv like 10 hours a day. and the tv is proven to kill intelligence (my spelling sucks but anyway) they could read a book, to get smarter. and go out met people or whatever...
