I've never heard of these guys...very odd. "Allergic" is probably the wrong word though, I don't think you can be allergic to something intangible like a WiFi signal...there needs to be a physical allergan to trigger a reaction, I think. That's what I learned back in college, anyway, but that was a million years ago I suppose...

Bah to that. Obesity is not a disease, it's from eating too much food. Yes yes, there are some people with pituitary problems, or whatever...but we all know that that's not what makes 99.9% of Americans burst out of their pants. No, it's double bacon cheeseburgers; plates of lasagna big enough for a family of four; ice cream that isn't sweet enough, so we mix in a candy bar; pizza with cheese injected into the crust; etc.
I'm overweight, right on the borderline of being technically obese. You won't hear me bithing and moaning about my "disease". I'm too big because I east too much food (because it's good, gosh darn it!); and I like to follow up my food by sitting on my ass and playing video games for a few hours. I own my problem, and I wish more overweight people would do the same.
Anyone remember the movie Crazy People
with Dudley Moore writing painfully true ads? The one for the diet clinic is appropriate: "Face it...if you look like this, then you're a big fat pig."
