Alternate solution,

Start eating yeast (which is used to mix with bread and ice cream) you will become like balloon in a month

Note: after become balloon shape, its very hard to reduce your weight and get back the shape.

When others started kidding/teasing about their irregular shape, they would started to think about loosing/gaining weight.

Note: You also included in this lucky list.

I thought round WAS a regular shape. I think I am a misinformed lot.

++1

I'd give anything to be considered too thin. Being too big is 100 times worse.

You wanna get fat fast? Eat lots of processed HIGH carbohydrate-laden foods and sit in front of your computer all the time. You'll be a candidate for The Biggest LOSER in no time at all.

I envy people with fast metabolism. They can eat almost anything and not gain a pound.

If I eat a candy bar, I feel as if I gained 5 pounds after eating it.

Meh; doesn't matter how fast someone's metabolism is, since it slows with age.

That's why some elderly people exercise to compensate for things that slows down with age.

I don't want to start a new thread or blog about it, so I'll just say it here:

Gran Turismo 5 sucks huge. It's by far the worst version yet. For sure I will no longer be investing in future versions, no matter what. I'm not sure if it's even worth buying any games anymore with the kind of quality put out these days.

Depends on what you actually do want to play. There are many high quality games out there, that are worth buying.
