Also known as the front row. So Much for Subtlety April 18, 2015 at 8:40 am The only reason to categorise people like this is to tailor messages bullying them properly. So we should slap anyone who even mentions it. TomJ April 18, 2015 at 8:53 am Per DocBud’s analysis, they’ll have trouble bullying we “heavy drinking males”… Rob April 18, 2015 at 9:43 am So which category do the legions of fat middle-aged women ‘fit’ into? Apart from “middle-aged women”? Jack C April 18, 2015 at 10:02 am SMFS, Who are these people constantly bullying you, and how exactly have they affected your everyday life? You remain entirely free to be told what to do by the Church of your choice. And to be contradictory. Bloke in North Dorset April 18, 2015 at 10:15 am Another excuse for the public health fascists to get there hands on public money and to tell us all how we should lead our lives, all in the interests of saving the NHS money. Lying bastards. cf Chris Snowden’s many posts on this subject as well as Timmy’s. Ian B April 18, 2015 at 11:46 am Public Health Campaigners fall into three categories; dicks, cunts and assholes. bloke (not) in spain April 18, 2015 at 12:01 pm Looking at the guy replenishing his glass & illustrating ‘the “heavy drinking males” group had above average levels of physical exercise but also had high levels of alcohol consumption’ he’s got the physique I’ve often been inclined to envy. When it comes to “above average levels of physical exercise” in the way of lifting, pulling, pushing, carrying, diggging etc I’m probably stronger than him but his heft gives him an advantage means I’m straining where he’s little more than coasting. Which is your front line of the scrum, isn’t it? Henry Crun April 18, 2015 at 12:28 pm Ian B, I think those categories are not quite correct. The 3 categories are disingenuous cunt, lying cunt and bare – faced lying cunt. Jack C April 18, 2015 at 12:36 pm Not so much these days B(n)IS, over-fit forwards are a menace in the modern game. The last time I played, I was flattened late on by some cast-iron teenager and sustained 3 cracked ribs. Worse, he had to run about 25 yards to make the tackle, which should have given me time for a crafty fag before off-loading. Unacceptable. Ian B April 18, 2015 at 12:43 pm Henry Crun, I stand corrected. dearieme April 18, 2015 at 12:57 pm “obese individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above.” Oh not again. Lots of studies seem to show (“seem” because it’s all just correlation, of course) that the somewhat obese (BMI 30-35) are healthier on average, and longer living, than the skinny. They are not at much of a disadvantage compared to the “normal”. It’s the “overweight” who do best. From which I infer that the definitions are crap, designed – no doubt – to justify all the fun of bullying by the medical Powers That Be. john77 April 18, 2015 at 2:45 pm @ Rob There are two groups – “younger healthy females” some of whom just *look* middle-aged, and “unhappy, anxious middle-aged” which is “mainly women with … or …” (the minority includes women without … as well as fat middle-aged men); obese men are almost all lumped into the heavy-drinking category which covers all ages – but some obese middler-aged women could belong to the sixth category of those in poor health. Interestingly, apart from the heterogeneous group of “poor health” there is one male group, one purely female, one overwhelmingly female group, and two elderly groups where the majority are female TomJ April 20, 2015 at 2:36 pm @Jack C: I played against a buch of military sponsored undergrads whose boss is mad-keen on phys in a recent charity game and, while they were annoyingly nippy around the park, they had no answer for the scrummaging or mauling of our more traditional pack. which is why the nippy buggers kept tha ball as far away from us as possible. Still, better than playing Army teams chock full of Pacific islanders seemingly recruited on the basis of how good they ate at rugby… Jack C April 20, 2015 at 4:53 pm TomJ, As ever, experience is invaluable. The problem comes when both sides are full of these buggers, and they start running into each other, and/or innocent bystanders. “how good they ate at rugby”: is this a typo? Jack C April 20, 2015 at 9:09 pm “a buch of military sponsored undergrads” Is “buch” also a typo? TomJ April 22, 2015 at 10:05 am Typo, wat tpyos?
