The country with the highest obesity problem in the world is Nauru. It's not the US, contrary to popular belief.

In Nauru almost everything they eat is imported processed junk food and they have a very inactive lifestyle, so it's not that hard to see why their weight is a real problem. They weren't always that way, though.

I've learned that no matter how hard you try, you just cannot be both honest and likable at the same time.

kangaroo flatus does not burn. Research on wombat flatus has been delayed due to severe wombat bites.
The color and shape of burning space wombat flatus remains...unknown.

this strange fact matters because the non combustible gas contains no methane-it is consumed by symbiotic intestinal flora to yield more energy for the animal- and methane is a potent greenhouse gas.
if scientists can adapt this flora to cattle we can all stop worrying about greenhousing cow farts.
We are saved!
