Are the Southerners gonna die?

What's going on down there? Why are they all sickly?

Apparently it's always been the case.

Southerners have always stunted.

Except in the old days, they were apparently too small and underfed, due to relative poverty to the north.

Now they're overfed with junk food and morbidly obeseand and diabetic allegedly due to poverty.

Why are they so poor?

What the hell is wrong with them? I understand that people everywhere fall on a bell curve for intelligence, so they're not dumb.

But why are they so unhealthy?

Is covid19 going to take them all out?

Is this just poverty or some kind of weird cultural thing?

A few reasons
(1) they loooove fried food - not healthy
(2) the area has high humidity. Have you ever lived in high humidity? It saps your energy. I came alive when I moved to CA...lack of movement promotes obesity
(3) I haven't figured out the poverty aspect...perhaps its tied to (2) and the lack of movement. Shrug.

So true on fried food. I like fried food too, but you need impulse control. If you only eat 2 chicken wings, they’re a lot more delicious than a whole basket.

Singapore is just about the most humid place on earth, so much so that the country’s founder said that the best human invention is air-conditioning.

But people there are very smart and hard driving. They are laser focused on OCED ratings and always want to be a the top. They are like smart students who always stress about not always being at the top of the class. Singaporeans need to be “fit for military service” until age 49. They are fined if they become too fat.

My friends and I have a “conspiracy” theory about the Anglo food supply. US, Canada, UK, Australia all have fatter people than other places.

Mexico is really fat too. It’s the processed food supply.

For the USA, i agree that humidity makes you lethargic. I say that back East, the sky is lower from all the moisture. It’s funny when I return to San Diego from Vegas it takes me about a day to get used to the higher humidity

San Diego humidity is nothing like the southeast, from the Carolinas all the way through TX and OK. I don't want to even move when humidity and temperatures are high at the same time.

I remember humidity in nyc, but I dont rwcall being laid low by it.

I mean, when it rains, its 100 % humidity, and it's always fun to ride or run in the rain.

Heat, I like, with enough water to drink, I'd run in 90 degrees.

Maybe its the combo? Heat plus humidity. But dont they have seasons?

Or people just feel gross sweating?

I enjoy being soaking wet with sweat, but the humidity affects the sweats cooling ability apparently

Honestly, I'm completely ignorant about the south, though very prejudiced against them.

Would never choose to live down there, dont think they're more stupid, just somehow fucked up and twisted, and not ok with minorities, which may not be true but I wouldnt risk it, as a place to live in.

but I'd really like to know why they weigh so much more.

It's just fried food? Cant they knock it off? How can you eat fried food in the heat? Seems like that would be grosser than exercising.

A big plate of fried crap in 90 perc humidity? If the conditions are ok for fried food, seems like its ok for a walk.

The constant condescension from the coastal elites made them eat and get fatter, just to spite all of us.

When Michele Obama said to eat more fruit and veggies, they stuffed themselves with fried chicken and apple pie instead. That’s what real Americans do. Ain’t nobody tellin’ ‘em what to eat.

Maybe obesity is the price of freedom.

Today’s weather in San Diego is just the best. Not too humid, hot or cold. I’m feeling energetic! Sitting on the terrace enjoying the breeze.

Wait you're feeling energetic, but sitting on the terrace? This does not compute.

After I went for a walk at the park. Not a run, just a nice walk. In San Diego, it feels like the outside is air conditioned.
