A macro shot of me holding (gently) a very sluggish and cold housefly between my thumb and forefinger.

Schadenfreude!

So what. You're all thinking it.

 

This is from 344pounds.com, which is a guy who went from disgustingly obese to almost normal and now thinks that his experience is unique and that he's got some divine knowledge he's going to share with the world. I've got two inches and 20 years on him and I still weigh less than he does...though technically both of us are still sadly out of shape...

I mean, if he were some exceptional physical specimen then I could see the reason for all of the self-congratulation, but he isn't even average yet! And since when did being average become an accomplishment?

I use this site to remind me that though I've lost a lot of weight, I shouldn't let it go to my head because all I've done is get back into the physical shape I should have been in all along...

Schadenfreude!
