Jumping to be banned under new climate change legislation

July 8, 2010 8:08am CST
The G20 leaders recently met in secret to discuss the implications of a new report on the possible causes of rising sea levels around the world. The report suggests that sea levels are not rising, but people are getting so fat that land masses are actually sinking. The situation in America is so bad that, as part of a range of emergency measures, all people over the weight of 100lbs are to be banned from jumping. Citizens will be encouraged, under a soon to be announced amnesty, to turn in all trampolines, space hoppers and pogo sticks, before all jumping devices are prohibited by law. I think this is going a little too far but what about you? you can read the report at: http://healthyamericans.org/reports/obesity2010/ And in case you're concerned about sinking beneath the waves, here's a list of the countries most in danger of sinking: http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/hea_obe-health-obesity

Ha ha....fooled us. Yes Obesity is a serious issue...but how are you going to fix it? You can tell people it is important to eat heathly. YOu can tell people they need to exercise... but they decide to sit around on the couch all day eating junk food...there is really nothing you can do about it.

I think they should expand the law to include little boys...the ones in my neighborhood in particular. And, what about those skate board ramps? My street alone is probably lower than it was this time last year from those.
