Okay - done . I figure I'll be parking in the north 40 for the rest of my life and it probably will be good for me.
I have to tell you, I have learned a little about that subject and I agree with you if I knew them, if I really knew why they were overweight. But again, there are many very odd and different ailments we humans have. I just learned of one recently that I will have in my head whenever I see someone like this, someone with huge butts and legs. How about a condition that makes the cells in just that part of the body absorb all the fat from their blood and not release any. They literally CAN'T loose the weight and eat anywhere near what they need. And then there was my friend who was very overweight, largely caused by taking the steroids that kept him alive with his lungs completely destroyed waiting for a transplant. He was on oxygen and could barely move, he never lost the weight and died at 52 years old. He was a career cop, a SWAT team member before he caught a disease from the dander off the feathers of doves that his wife would release at weddings in her business. Yep, he was a SWAT team member and he died from something off the feathers of doves. As he said when he told me about this, "who would have thunk."

I don't know, like I say, unless I know, I just can't beat them up too much.

YEOW, that is a whole different story! No, they need their butts kicked!

The parking needed to get the scooter out may be the reason they took the handicapped spot. I don't know, I know that a lot of time it is BS and they could have parked many different places depending on where the scooter was (hanging off the back of the car is often where it is) the need for the wider handicapped spot may be needed.

I say all this because there is a very big gray area in out health, I have heard of such odd conditions, we all have, that do one thing or another, I give them a big break. Not unless I KNOW do I go off. My comment I made on that truck in the photo was a little out of place. I don't believe I am off the mark in that it's BS they have that plate on that rig, but after thinking about it, there is some reasons why it would be fair.

I know that one of my friends who is 3'9" tall with 4 inch long legs uses a wheel chair, but can walk. He would never get that chair out coming to my house for instance, but at a store he uses it. He use to have a high jacked 4X4 Chevy pickup. He had such strong arms when he was young back then. He could lift his body like it was a Big Mac, he grabbed the handles he had put on the cab and would just about "throw" his body up onto the seat like a circus performer.

If you saw this 4x4 in a handicapped parking spot you may very well question it too.

I don't know, all I can say is I am blessed with the ability to leave my wife drive home from a restaurant 4 miles from my house and I take my evening walk.

I spoke out of place earlier. I don't think about this stuff much normally too much believe me. If I knew for sure, oh hell yeah, I want to punch them!

boothboy Did you ever wonder if the guy sitting in that Donk, looks at hotrodders.com and asks himself 'What dummy would put all that money in those old POS?"

Who's right?
