    Interesting, but it sounds like the need for the 7ft coffin is because his legs are locked open, not really because of his weight.

    Umm cut them off or break them?

    Seriously though, a dead frozen 900 lb man with his legs wide open has got to be a f'ed up thing to see.

    Very few people can, and it's nearly all genetic.

    Blaming the super obese for their problems is ignorance. They have a serious genetic abnormality.

    If you think it's all sloth, I challenge you to get that big. Bet you couldn't no matter how hard you tried.

    With those genes, I'm sure he could be anorexic and still weigh 900lbs!

    They're just lazy. You don't eat crap you don't get fat. Period. You only gain weight if you consume more calories than you burn in any given day. Genetics do play a role, but not enough to make you obese.

    That is insane. At that point, they just need to wrap the guy up in one of those blue tarps and dump him into a deep grave ... with foundation piers to bedrock.

    Just plain ignorance. Genetics play a HUGE role. Again, I challange ANY normal sized person to become super obese (500 lbs or heavier).

    You can't. You know why? Genetics.

    It's not laziness alone that causes this. Many super obese people do not eat much more, if any more than normal sized people.

    You've got to eat a certain amount just to maintain nutritional needs.. for these people, just eating the bare minimum to survive still means they're going to gain weight. Imagine being on a 1000 calorie diet for 20 years and gaining significant weight.

    Yeah... I'm sure you become 900 lbs from genetics :roll:
    300-350 lbs I can believe... but 900 lbs?? Just no. No.

    You've got that completely backwards. Just about any normal person can become mildly to severely obese by simply eating too much.

    Some cannot become obese no matter what they eat.

    And then, only a few have the genetics that cause them to become super obese. Genetics that thankfully, most of us do not have.
