On getting fat

This post explains why I have started putting on the ol' weight recently.

Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with custard coated apple pies, pizza, sugar, lack of exercise, etc.


It is all about gravity (and a bit of Newtonian calculation).

I'll let the BBC and some scientists explain why, here (it is a fascinating article). The key point to notice is that the UK experiences some of the earths most intense gravitational forces, more than in the East coast of the USA, for example.

Gravity, picking on us poor slim folk in the UK, has made us heavier.

Right, time for a Chinese takeaway.

apparently there is a disturbingly large gravitational field, especially on the Saturday after payday, at all Walmarts in the midwestern states of the USA. . . .
