LOL! Almost totally true! ESPECIALLY the bit about cars, and stupid parents who double park in bloody big landrover things outside schools. At risk of sounding like that monty python sketch; when I was a kid we never had a car, we used to have to catch a bus, walk 300 miles, complete an army training course and swim the entire length of the leeds-liverpool canal to get to school. Well... we didn't have a car anyway.
The only bit i'd disagree with is that I don't think it's the chilren's faults. If noones providing an alternative to all the junk and inactivity there's not much they can do, really.

I agree. And I HATE THAT FUCKING CLOWN!
Sorry 'bout that. Had to get that off my chest, you know...
In any case, here's some solid dietary advice fat people (me included) would do well to heed:
Don't eat too much. And move once in a while.
Well, anyway, it was great.

Good essay. Yeah, I have to agree with you. Seems like common sense has gone missing in the USA, hasn't it? Anyhow, good work.

Exactly. At my school they sell twice a week, what else? Mcdonalds. But thats not the real issue. They give us gym for HALF the school year and ONLY going every other day. My school is so poor that there aren't any afterschool late buses to drop us all home, therefore less people participate in sports. \ Parents like mine are also very protective and never let me go outside for some fresh air.
P.S. My birthday is the same as yours. )

This is good for what it is. Obviously, you could have done some research, quoted a few sources and provided an oposing arguement (which you could then shoot down), and I am assuming that if you had intended this to be a serious formal essay then you would have done. That was a compliment, I promise. Something I would like to say in defence of McDs (even though I hate them too) is that at least they don't have the 7 second rule. At Burger King, if something is on the floor for less than 7 seconds then you can still serve it. At least McDs through away anything that lands on the floor. (By the way, I was told this by someone who used to work at Burger King.)

Looking past your obvious 'love affair' with McDonalds, you make some good points; although I don't agree with your "the kids need to shoulder some of the blame too" statement. That really depends on the age of the 'kid'.
And, according to you, a little water could hurt somebody. Inadvertently, anyway - according to your "I Hate Umbrellas" essay.
The quote at the end really summed it all up.
Take care, D.
