You'd be surprised how easy it is to let your weight slide, even that far. About 5 weeks ago I weighed 24st 5lb. I didn't quite need a bariatric ambulance/trolley to get around - I was still quite happy to get on a bicycle or walk long distances - but in the last 18-24 months alone I'd put at least 28lbs onto an already obese frame. Most of that recent weight gain has been undone in the last few weeks, but there's still a very long way for me to go.

There was a guy mentioned in that article who was 31st - it's very easy to see how he could get there from where I was a few weeks ago. Once you get to that point it's a very hard road back and some people just don't or won't face it. "Going on a diet" isn't the answer, you need a massive lifestyle change and that's a very hard thing to do. This is without even getting into mental health issues, "comfort eating", simply not being taught how to cook properly, etc, all of which can undo hard-fought weight loss in a very short space of time - losing the weight is achievable, but keeping it off is the really hard part.

I'm not condoning getting yourself into that state, I'm just saying it's easy to see how it could happen.

Skimming through my junk mail, I see an email from LeanBellyBreakthrough.

"Oh, it must be some spam weight/fat loss type thing, move along", I say to myself. But then I see the subject line - How to train your cat to not poop on the floor. "Why are LeanBellyBreakthrough sending emails about training your cat not to poop on the floor?", I say to myself.

Then it hits me:

There must be a significant proportion of the population out there that are fat because they eat the cat poop every time the cat poops on the floor!

I mean... I don't actually have a cat... but c'mon - there must be ways of coping with poop on the floor other than just eating it!?!?!

The franchise was over long ago allready, since the 2009 Star Trek imho. The last time it felt like Star Trek was in 2002 with Star Trek Nemesis, and that wasn't as good anymore allready unfortunately.

Basically all the series and movies based on the writings of Rodenberry were the only ones that really felt like Star Trek. All the modern ones are blant action movies with uninteresting stories.
Star Trek for me is TNG, DS9 and Voyager. They feel the most coherent and are more about solving problems by other means than fighting, like we would expect from an advanced civilisation.
