I walked at Greenlake today. I was at Greenlake from about 2 to a little after 3 or so. I don’t know if my time took me to 4 or so. Maybe it did; I had a conversation with a fellow and a gal for 15 minutes at one point!
There was a gal in what some might consider a thong and she is of some nice photos. She was also topless face down.
There was a fellow looking at a tree. It turns out he was watching a squirrel which had laid hold of a bag of potato chips and the squirrel was taking the bag with it up the tree. The squirrel then left the bag at a spot where a branch of the tree veers off from the trunk, ten or fifteen above the ground!
When I was on the south side of the lake and heading east, there was a man and woman on a pier. They waved me over and said they would hug and we each hugged. The man then asked me a question about what was love. I gave him what I understood to be love, based on two near-death experience accounts.
Somehow in the conversation it also came up that I get caned and/or that people had thought I had a cute butt, although I also think now, that my butt needs some work to improve it :). These things made the woman laugh!
The gal and I did a photo together.
After Greenlake I was downtown doing some signature gathering. At the King County administration building I encountered one of several news reporters I have previously met. We chatted some and he said he wished to do a story on my walking. He asked what I wore, if I had been arrested, what the law was and how I would respond to people who are concerned about bad actors, sexual predators or similar evil-doers.
Later that day, I sent him an email . . . and then I realized that there is a large and unexplored topic, which is teenage girls engaging in unhealthy eating practices or anorexia.
Of course, I can’t possibly think that teenage girls should be taught and allowed to participate in bikini competitions . . . and I can’t possible think they should taught and know that the way that the winners win at these competitions is by working out and lifting weights. Not! Not, NOT!
There would NOT be less anorexia if the girls knew that they can be really cute and even beautiful and maybe even win some contests, not by being overly skinny, but by having nice curves from lifting. Going to the gym doesn’t help people!
Oh, well what does David know?! He is just an idiot!
Crow and colleagues found that crude mortality rates were 4.0% for anorexia nervosa, 3.9% for bulimia nervosa, and 5.2% for eating disorder not otherwise specified. They also found a high suicide rate in bulimia nervosa.
I can’t imagine that any–not one!–of society’s problems with teenage girls killing themselves with anorexia has anything to do with what we teach them . . . I can’t imagine that learning about bikini competitions or lifting would help anyone look better or be healthy! Of course not! Bikini competitions are really just unhealthy–the competitors all just die! . . . Would any girl in her right mind wish to look or walk like Diana Whitt? Why, oh Lord why, would some think it good?
- Anorexia is the most common cause of death (up to 12 times higher than any other condition) among young women ages 15 to 24.
David is, of course, just a real idiot!
Here are today’s photos. They include some of gals downtown!
