Irish Introspections for Friday 1/14

Today since there has yet to be a Dragon Laffs Issue we’ll do a Two-fer-One special on Introspections. First the Part 5 installement of our Weirdest Stories of 2010 10 part feature.

The woman who achieved the record of world’s fattest at 700 pounds

Terri Smith, 49, a 700-pound woman is pinned in her sleeping room, incapable to move, stand or roll across by herself – adjusting the fresh world record as the Fattest woman. She suffers severe headaches and needs an MRI scan to check out for a potential brain tumor, unfortunately she is also too big to fit in a scanner or to pass through the doors of a hospital.

Terry has never been a delicate female child. At the age of 7, she weighed almost 70 kilograms. The woman explains that her family was poor which did not allow for her parents to bargain healthy foods. At the age of twenty, Terry weighed about 120 kilograms. Terri wedded husband Myron, whom she looks up to as her guardian spirit, in 1986. At the age of 32 she built up severe arthritis in her knees and was incapable to walking more than a couple of steps at one time. Smith was lastly given an electric wheelchair to get around in. The lack of physical exercise and not having modified her eating caused her weight balloon to the point wherever she could barely stand. Then about three years ago a change in her medicine caused her to gain 91 pounds in 30 days. Those pounds forced her to the bed ridden state she has been in ever since. (Link)

OK now both Impish and I are not little guys and freely acknowledge we carry more than just a few extra pounds of padding so we really DO NOT have room to throw stones.

However this IS supposed to be a humorous introspection and I AM supposed to have a wry comment after each post so here goes….

DAMN! She’s not sitting ’round the house…the house be barely sitting ’round her!

49 states have snow, with Florida the only holdout

Associated Press Jan. 12, 2011, 12:45PM <(Click for Link)>

HONOLULU — Even Hawaii has snow on the ground, along with every other state except Florida.

The National Weather Service said there was 7 inches of snow on the top of Mauna Kea on Hawaii’s Big Island on Tuesday.

Thank god for Global Warming! No telling HOW MUCH snow Hawaii and the Deep South would have received with out it!

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.

One Response to Irish Introspections for Friday 1/14

    Damn, Terri Smith is a little on the skinny side. We had a 900 pounder here in our little town a few years ago. He was in his twenties when he died at home in his bed. The fire guys used a chain saw to cut a hole in the side of the house and then they used a fork lift to get him out and load him on a flatbed truck.
    Now we have a new contestant in town who looks to be around 500 pounds and he’s still walking and even serving the community. I wonder if they have something in the water here???
