    My other thought is wtf are you doing in your gym clothes in a public place other people are eating and drinking you sweaty fat fucks.

    Okay, now I'm a piece of shit.

    In a similar vein, there was a woman in my old building who was about 100 pounds overweight and she had this $2000 racing bike. Every few days I'd witnessed her huffing and puffing to get the bike off the elevator and then she'd ride around the block ( if that ). Over the space of about three years she never seem to lose any weight or get in any better condition. Every time I saw her I thought I had the thought "WTF do you need a $2000 bike to go through this pretense of exercise?". She would have been better served by buying a used hundred dollar bike and spending the other 1900 on crystal meth. Unfortunately she did not seek my console. :)

    If you think living next door to a fat lady is that bad you haven't been around a lot of meth heads

    Much in what you say. I suppose each are undesirable medical conditions. Given the choice though, I'd have to lean towards being a speed freak than being obese. If nothing else I'd have greater mobility. :D

    There is this weird New York culture of women wearing workout clothes seemingly 100% of the time. It is like if you don't have a dog, bike, yoga mat, and a tattoo you should get the fuck with it.

    I really hate seeing women in athletic clothing. I don't know why, maybe it is the weird compression bras, but the idea that they are wearing the stuff to look like they have all of this leisure time to make themselves fit, and have not another care in the world bothers me. Is it a status thing? I mean, only Vox is allowed to do that. In a compression bra.

    Indeed. Where I live there is a certain class of these that must also have a baseball hat, with pony tail sticking out the back, and they seem to prefer mid-size luxury SUVs like the Lexus GX, Volvo XC90, or the X5 BMW. The hat is usually bedazzled.

    Definitely not just a New York thing.

    Though I, for one, am OK with yoga pants.

    I'm okay with the whole outfit as long as she has the body to pull it off. Some women actually look pretty fetching this way. Just because it's a current stereotype does not mean some are not truly chub inducing.

    My neighborhood is UMC to wealthy (I have like one of the 10 cheap houses) and since I work from home a lot of the time, I am often at the grocery store or the like in the 9AM-11AM or 2:00PM-4:00PM range, wherein you will see the highest concentration of yoga pants.

    What's crazy is when you see one of these women from behind and she looks like a banging 24 year old and then you get to the other side and she's a grandmother.

    I was literally in the process of formulating a post along the lines of, "well, it looks like Conne will be relocating" when I reloaded the page and saw the the Conneman himself had beaten me to the punch.

    I don't like any of it. All women should wear burkhas.

    I don't get this.

    How's the food at the Betty Ford clinic anyway?
