Sign You're Getting Too Big

From an AP story entitled 'Heavy patients put strain on hospitals':
"At Barnes-Jewish, lift machines help some patients get in and out of bed. Chairs have been made stronger and wider. Lights have been added at floor level because the bodies of extremely obese people can cast a shadow that makes it hard to see the floor.

I'm not a fan of playing "Laugh at the Fatties", but when you get big enough that you block the light from reaching the floor, something is seriously, seriously wrong.

If you mistakenly believe there's an eclipse, but just a fat person, you owe them a duty to tell them to lose weight.
