It’s no secret that a lot of people in the country are overweight. In fact, reports suggest that 40% of the U.S. population aged 15 and older is obese. And while there are overweight folks everywhere, there are some cities where more of the population is considered “fat,” and a new report reveals which ones they are.
They looked at the 100 most populated metro areas in the U.S. across 19 key weight-related indicators, Those include share of overweight and obese adults and teens, share of adults with health issues related to weight like diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, as well as access to healthy food, a city’s friendliness towards an active lifestyle and more.
With all that in mind, the report finds that the area of McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, Texas is the fattest in the country, scoring an 84.21 out of 100.
Shreveport-Bossier City, LA
As for the city with the least amount of overweight people, that honor goes to the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, California area, which is dead last for health consequences and in the bottom ten for both food and fitness, and obesity and overweight indicators.
A cruise ship might be the worst place on Earth to be during the coronavirus outbreak. So here’s a question: If someone offered you a FREE, all-expenses-paid cruise right now, would you go? A new survey asked over 1,000 people . . . and TWO-THIRDS of us would turn it down.
65% of Americans wouldn’t go on a cruise right now, even if it was free. That includes 77% of people 65 and older, which is kind of a key demographic for cruises.
Young people were less likely to say they’d skip it. Just 53% of people between 18 and 24 said they wouldn’t go.
More than half of people also said they’d cancel ANY international travel plans right now. That’s even if they wouldn’t get their money back for hotels and plane tickets.
Meanwhile, we may be turning down travel, but we sure are curious about Covid 19 Porn
Apparently, coronavirus-themed PORN is now popping up on all the adult streaming sites. There have been more than 100 videos that have been posted in the past few days.
They’re mostly amateur videos of people getting-it-on in hazmat suits and surgical masks.
And . . . people are actually WATCHING it.
An amateur porn producer and star who goes by Spicy made one of the videos. It’s called “Bodycam Footage Investigates Deserted Wuhan”, and in it, she’s wearing a hospital gown, the guy is in a hazmat suit, and they get-it-on in a deserted street.
She says, quote, “I think people are attracted to [coronavirus]-themed porn the same way people who are scared of their shadow are [into] horror movies. We are all searching for things that make us come alive.”
Dry ice can really deliver an amazing look if utilized the right way. Unfortunately, a Russian Instagram influencer threw a big birthday party over the weekend and didn’t understand the hazards associated with dry ice.
Yekaterina Didenko’s birthday party took a horrible turn when over 50 pounds of dry ice was poured into a pool to create a stunning “visual effect,” leaving three dead and at least four injured.
Didenko’s husband, Valentin Didenko, unloaded the dry ice to impress guests with the smokey vapor but when he jumped in to cool down after a steamy sauna session, he stopped breathing and was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Two other guests were pronounced dead at the scene as well.
The Russian Investigative Committee has reportedly opened a criminal case into the incident and some are questioning if it was really just dry ice in the pool.
