Just wondering: Why is it unacceptably rude to go up to someone and ask “Why are you so fat?” but considered acceptable to ask somebody “Why are you so thin?” I am terribly embarrassed about my thinness, yet countless people ask me about it. My quest to gain weight has met with some success, I have gained 2kgs in a fortnight; simply by eating 2 slices of white bread in the morning, adding 2 teaspoons of sugar to my twice-daily coffee and drinking 2 glasses of fruit juice a day. Nobody has noticed the extra weight, and I press on to gain the additional 3kgs my doctor has ordered.
Apropos of the subject, on this day in 1912 David Packard was born. Founder with William Hewlett of the Hewlett Packard Company.
