Its not that anyone on this thread particularly complained he just said he sympathized with the people who he had to force off the ride. Don't feel bad, they deserve no pity.
I'm no expert here, but I've heard that genes can contribute to weight, if that's true, then some people are being forced of ride for something they have no control over, like height.
The huge increase in the percentage of obese people in the USA in more attributable to controllable aspects of one's life (diet and exercise) than genes. Yes, a small percentage is attributable to genetics, but the obesity level in the US has steadily increased from around 10% in the early 1960's to over 33% today.
The 10% obesity level was constant for decades and a mutation did not magically enter the US gene pool 50 years ago to cause this trend. The US population eats more and exercises less than ever in its history.
I love to eat, therefore I exercise.
