You're right--I'm a bad man.

If I remember correctly, someone on the RBR boards knows this fellow. He's evidently quite the cross animal, despite his weight. Yay for him!

Yup...he's doing something. Saw this TLC show on this 1000+ man that had gastric bypass surgery. Now I can't understand how anyone can get that big. He couldn't roll over or lay on his back because the weight was so great he couldn't breathe.

I didn't think a person that big could survive surgery. Imagine the job of the surgeon, trying to locate an organ the size of a handbag in an 850 pound pile of human fat. They would need a winch with a meathook just to flap open his torso.

Ugh.

this guy is awesome. I would much rather see him cycling than sitting in front of a computer typing replies in some forum...

You have to check the show on TLC out called Half TOn Man--they had to get the guy out of his house by knocking out the wall to his bedroom.

Ah, Jeez, just when I was going to blow off the ride and go eat tacos....
