    I do not have sympathy for people who harm themselves and then pretend like they're victims of someone else.

    The airlines' "penalty" should be a settlement of $600 payable to a grief and loss therapist for Janos. 4-6 sessions. BFD.
    What exactly did she do to herself? I would love to hear your insights as to how twinkies are the only possible reason someone wheelchair-bound with impaired kidneys could weigh 407 pounds.

    I'm a big sonofabitch. I'm large framed, I've got dense bones, I'm muscular and I'm fat. I weigh 260.

    407 pounds is 180+ kg. Holy ****. I weight less than half of that.

    I have a rule. If you are over 120kg, or 280 pounds, you are encouraging death to come sooner. This does not include people who are very tall or are athletes. I am talking strictly about normal people who have other things to do except being at the gym all day, who have to work and are 1.80m or shorter.

    Only possible reason? I mean you don't assume you have ebola everytime you get a cough do you?

    It is very rare for someone to be overweight because of some out of control weight-gain disease.
    Kidneys sound like Diabetes, which are indeed caused by those twinkies.

    This poses an interesting question, what constitutes a disability? And in what cases should we legally obligate a private company or organization to accommodate them.

    I think it's fairly obvious that we believe that some, but not all disabilities should be accommodated in all circumstances. For example, we expect most large businesses and organizations accommodate blind individuals with braille, but we wouldn't expect NASCAR to allow blind drivers.

    So where does being morbidly obese fall on the disability scale? Sure some people might have a propensity for gaining that much weight, but it's certainly a personal choice. No one force fed her. No one strapped her to a chair and prevented her from exercising.

    That leaves the question, should an airline accommodate a person who made choices which prevented them from sitting in even a first class seat?
