    And if they did LIE, then sure that's bad, and he deserved (and got) compensation.

    But your argument that being overweight or obese is almost always genetic is an absolute joke. Perhaps some people have some genetic favorability toward being smaller than others, but it can almost always be manipulated, and it's really offensive that you immediately talk about anorexia and starvation when dealing with weight maniuplation methods.

    "People should be treated equally" when they're equal..before the law. Weight does not make a person a person.  If one person is huge and impedes on another's paid-for space, than those people aren't equal, are they?

      in both the video and his blog and compare it to their comments in their blog (which I've provided) - his story makes sense, there's doesn't.

      And, no it's not a joke - my wife was 12lbs when she was born.  What was she over straining her umbilical cord?  My grandson is headed the same way.  Can it be manipulated with ridiculous amounts of over-exercising and/or overeating?  In some case, but not all.  

      The real question for me, and I've seen this automatic asumption that she just HAS to be diabetic at her size - she's not, she's actually hypoglycemic which is the opposite effect and requires she eat regularly to keep her blood sugar from crashing - is just how much stress being constantly told "SHAPE UP FATTY" by every commercial and tv, and treated like a lazy slob by most people she meets does to damage her mood.

      How about paying for the embarrasment, or his flight on a airline of his choice because he sure as fuck aint flying with those fail motherfuckers ever again is his fucking life!
