Study links obesity, XXXL clothing
Could the clothes you buy determine your weight?
A new $3.2 million H-Net/Fritz Media study has revealed
a very significant statistical correlation between the
purchasing of clothing in XXXL sizes and obesity, and
a corresponding correlation between purchasing sizes
M and S with low body weight. Perhaps most surprisingly,
the study found that people used to purchase XXXL clothing,
but have since switched to purchasing smaller clothes
sizes are also very likely to have lost a lot of weight.
So the next time you go shopping, you may want to head
over to the petite section, even if they'll need to
use a forklift to get you over there!

Brick Testament: Jesus's
lord and savior Jesus Christ is best known for getting
by the Romans and thereby somehow granting us eternal
life, but it's a little known fact that he is also considered
a world-renown moral teacher. No less an authority than
US President George W. Bush once named Jesus as his
political philosopher". Today The Brick Testament
launches a new section of the website devoted to illustrating
Jesus's Teachings. It's called, appropriately enough,
Teachings of Jesus.

checks himself before wrecking himself
Following the advice of
a concerned and vaguely threatening peer, Rev. Smith
today decided to take a moment out of his busy schedule
to check himself before wrecking himself. "I was
skeptical at first, not having realized that I was on
a path to self-destruction, but I now feel extremely
fortunate to have taken the time to examine my recent
behaviors and motivations, making changes where necessary
to better myself."
