Weights and Whacks.

You can get the details from this Guardian article, but the news is that:
  • Overweight people have a lower risk of early death than those whose weight is regarded as normal

  • the finding has brought an immediate accusation that the serious health consequences of expanding waistlines in developed countries have been overstated.

  • "What is officially deemed overweight these days is actually the optimal weight."

On another positive note, until this entry is referenced by search engines, I have a googlewhack! It is... neuroleptic flump. And yes, I know it breaks one of the mini-mini-mini rules, but wikipedia tells me it's technically called a fubawl. Yes indeed.
