Obese People Have Severe Brain Degeneration

My father sent me an e-mail today with a link to this article:

Obese People Have 'Severe Brain Degeneration' - Yahoo! News: "A new study finds obese people have 8 percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals. Their brains look 16 years older than the brains of lean individuals,
researchers said today."

I'm sure he means well and hopes that this will give me incentive to re-lose my weight. But somehow it comes across as being a bit insulting.

A Riddle

There is a clerk at the butcher shop. He is five feet ten inches tall, wears size 13 sneakers, and his waist is 48 inches. He has a wife and 2 kids. What does he weigh?
