There is some truth in that.
Listening to Take a Chance on Me right now actually.
Always liked that better than Dancing Queen, but apparently I'm in the minority on that one.
Oh the irony is just simply delightful to behold.
Like how the Brits sort tweed in grams per yard, and the speedo is in KM/H but the road signs mark miles?
I'll take a long cwt of what he's smoking.
Swedish rape laws are not so fun though.
I don't understand why medical professionals tend to be so obese. Maybe it's cuz they're all do busy and stressed they dont have time and energy to eat well and exercise
It depends on where it is, I think. Here in Montreal and most places in Europe, I've rarely seen an actual obese med prof (though I'm sure they exist). A lot of them are simply overweight, smoke a lot, have poor eating habits, etc.
I thought smoking makes you thinner because it reduces hunger
With all of your, "this is happening" photos I can't believe that you are not overweight.
it just reduces stress. food also reduces stress.
I can totally understand why there are fat doctors that smoke.
what I don't understand is how much alcohol abuse goes into the medical profession. I realize that its another an outlet for stress relief, but the old school consultants (guys in their late 40's through 50s-70's) seem to be some world class drinkers.
there are a ton of functioning alcoholic consultants - since there's a serious code not to snitch - everyone covers for each other in case of the older consultants being too drunk to function - no one actually bats an eyelash when a consultant is inebriated.... they just kind of work around him/her and cover.
the weird part is that being a drunk is pretty much tolerated... but the second its another drug like cocaine or prescription pain med abuse - thats when the hammer drops and the higher ups intervene - i guess thats why everyone sticks to good old booze.
I can't remember ever meeting a morbidly obese doctor, and even moderate obesity seems less common than in the general population. It's a pretty safe bet that drug and alcohol abuse are somewhat more common though.
I mean, they are human with the same vices as the rest of us.
