Weight gain means lower gas mileage

- Want to spend less at the pump? Lose some weight. That's the implication of a new study that says Americans are burning nearly 1 billion more gallons of gasoline each year than they did in 1960 because of their expanding waistlines. Simply put, more weight in the car means lower gas mileage.

Wait, you mean my fat ass makes me not just a shitty climber BUTT hurts my gas mileage?

Crap!
 
I saw on this story this morning. My wife came into the room wondering why I was laughing so hard at the commercial that immediately followed the report: it started with a shot of a worn out woman on a treadmill and then said "Why are you working so hard?" -- it was a commercial for a Lipodissolve center...

p.s. Love the Google search thing and will play with it more later. WT
