    Fat Nation

    Stardate 7778.05

    Ambulance for obese patients to debut in Calgary

    special paramedic trainingApparently our western society is becoming so fat that we are developing new ways to deal with the repurcussions as opposed to dealing with the problems of being fat. We are introducing a new ambulance for really fat people that comes with specially trained paramedics to lift and transport them (ie bodybuilders no doubt).

    Since 1985, the number of morbidly (nice choice of words) obese people in Canada has quadrupled, according to the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
    Nearly a quarter of Canadians qualify as obese, reports Statistics Canada.
    Pretty damned scary stats if you ask me.
