All I've got to say to this... No Shit. How much money did these guys get in grant money to figure out that one?

As a former "fat kid", I'll have to echo that, Jason: no shit. My weight made middle school the worst three years of my life, though not primarily because I got winded on the field. Sartre got it wrong; hell is other kids.

I wasn't terribly fat, but though I was "only" pretty roly-poly, what I lacked in true obesity I also lacked in stamina. I was strong, but I had no endurance whatsoever, and was winded almost immediately, which made it so humiliating to do anything to try to get in shape that I eventually just gave up trying. Unfortunately, I also had gynecomastia. If you think other kids are hard on you for being fat, just try being fat and having breasts.
And I have to second that "no shit."

In my case (despite topping out at 300 pounds a few months ago) I'm fairly tall and come from big-headed, wide-shouldered German/Austrian stock, so I like lighter than I am. I was picked on some, but I've always been bigger than everyone else.
I third "no shit" and I also wonder if they got paid to figure that out. Watch following weeks for reports on kids who wore glasses and kids who had braces.

Hey, these are not breasts! They're big, hairy man-titties and you'll get nothing out of them no matter how damned long you suck!
