Just a few hundred years ago, being fat was a sign of wealth. However, if you look at homeless people or poor people in our society now, it is easy, and cheap to be fat. For $1 you can either buy a couple carrots, or an entire package of cookies or even a double double cheeseburger. No one really needs to be able to run, fight, or be physically fit to survive anymore, but that doesn’t change our primal urges that find it attractive in the opposite sex. I came across this list today that I thought was interesting. How do you stack up on this, be honest.
