Can’t See Passed Your Fat Ass
Approximately 64% of Americans are either overweight or obese. Doctor’s have found that this presents a problem when x-rays or scans are needed to determine the presence of tumors, broken bones, etc. Dr. Raul Uppot, Radiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital says the problem is more widespread than previously thought. Fat-person x-rays are being written-up as “These images are limited due to body habitus.” Translation: I can’t see a thing through fat boy’s rolls. Uppot says fat-folk x-rays look like a snow storm; an illegible blur. Different new machines are being explored to help get adequate readings when treating the “growing” American population.

The Birds; Revenge Not So Sweet
Donia Monique Brooks, 25, of Fredericksburg, Virginia, took her pet Cockatoo to the movies with her on Saturday. Unfortunately, Brooks decided to leave her feathered-friend in the back seat while she went in to catch a flick. While she left a window cracked for tweety, the bird, who authorities say was acting distressed when witnesses called them in for help, died of heat exhaustion in his cage before they could free it from the sweltering vehicle. Now, Brooks is charged with animal cruelty, a misdemeanor in Virginia, and can serve up to one year in jail.
A man was recently sentenced to twenty five years in prison for infecting his sex partners with HIV. We’ll skip the details, since they are not the basis for today’s question. The law is apparently absolving adults of their responsibility for participating in unprotected sex and is choosing to punish only one partner. That said, should individuals who infect folks with other sexually transmitted diseases – such as the herpes, etc., be given some sort of criminal punishment for transmitting diseases to unsuspecting sexual partners? Is the legal system intervening in the private lives of adults?
