Strange Maps: The South Shall Snack Again

Fat city from Strange Maps. Anyone watch the Wall•E movie? And Americans continue to get fatter.

As I watched the Wall•E movie I thought it would become propaganda as the too fat to move humans were showcased. It was a part of the movie that was tough for me to watch. Robots were doing everything for the humans who suffered as the result of inactivity. Fortunately it didn’t do more than observe and end on a positive note. When we had to forage for our livelihood, we used our bodies in a healthier manner. Now it is just too easy to live at a keyboard rather than interface with the human race and get our exercise. I think I’ll go walk the dog.

    This is the reason I  workout 5 times a week and mow my own lawn.  I could sit around and do nothing.  I did too much sitting around when my husband was in the hospital so much. 
    I have never seen the Wall.E movie.  Sounds very interesting though.

    I noticed that the fattest were int the south.  Ah that sourthern cooking.  I was raised on that and have had to relearn how to eat.  I miss that from my Arkansas and Kentucky relatives and transplanted ones.  Mom aka Bertie

    Eating out too much has led to obesity I think, as has the buying of convenience foods.  If you make your own food, the temptation to over eat is largely gone.
