Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
It’s certainly obvious she doesn’t want to become the world’s fattest sack of goo in secret, this is all about achieving fame. So I’m going to do my best to help her.
The unemployed mother – who cannot work because of her weight – claims she stays active by doing simple exercises and having regular health checks.
‘I go for a waddle and do stretches and exercises every day,’ she said. ‘My muscles need to hold up to my weight, so I have to stay strong.
Despite warnings from her doctor that her bizarre experiment could kill her, Susanne insists she wants to break the record.
Dr Patrick Flite said: ‘She’s really playing Russian roulette with her life with this goal. There are well-documented complications that come with morbid obesity.
‘I would never encourage anyone to be doing what Susanne is doing.’
Dr Flite said Susanne’s medical checks showed no current problems, adding: ‘She’s capable of making her own decisions. I don’t see any psychiatric problems or anything else wrong.’
I do. If you click through to the article, you’ll see she has that smug smirk on every single picture. (Warning: She’s wearing shorts in one.) The woman is a nut, and if current mental health science cannot identify a psychiatric deficiency then that means it hasn’t looked hard enough. I’m not a psychologist and I do not play one on teevee, but I think my initial impression is the right one: In a welfare state in which there is no place for individual exceptionalism, this is where the natural instinct to achieve it is siphoned off. Yes, this is lunacy, and it’s man-made.
The other obvious problem is, if she should ever reach her goal, with the elapse of a little more additional time someone else is going to pass it, and then where will she be? Well, practically speaking, under the ground and that’s another problem. Doesn’t that sum it up? When Al Bundy waxes lyrically about scoring two touchdowns in a single game at Polk High School…that’s as pathetic as Susanne Eman will become if she lives, which isn’t gonna happen. So she’s one notch beneath Al Bundy. One notch and six feet.
Ed Darrell thinks it’s time for Americans to dream, and we realize our biggest dreams through government spending. Jabba The Eman of Arizona, at “52 stone” (that’s over 700 lb.) and still packing it on, proves he has a point.
