Important Notice

It is not my intention to denigrate Saudi Arabia or its people. It’s like everywhere else, there is good and there is bad. I would rather focus on the unusual and the humourous. Offence is not intended.

“The country is not perfect. The media cannot be trusted, mistreatment of religious minorities is common and there are some that live in fear.” You can decide for yourself whether that statement is about Saudi Arabia, the UK, or any country for that matter.

To quote the Joker, “Why can’t we all just get along?”

That is all I will say about either subject.

Fat Brits, Fat Saudis

Dear Saudis, be ashamed. Be very ashamed. You're almost as fat as the British and we're one of the fattest groups of fat fatties you've ever seen.
This is one of the downsides of thobes and abayas, with no discomfort coming from your ever tighter trousers you can hide beneath your flowing clothes in blissful ignorance. Its only when you can't see your feet that you realise you may be over eating a bit...

"we're one of the fattest groups of fat fatties"

Goodness me!!! There is someone in the world who doesn't think that we (Americans) hold the honor of being elephants in human skins. Some ignorances sure are bliss ... well at least for some.

the way we look at it is that among our neighbors (bahrain, kuwait, UAE) we're not the fattests :)

but this list is strange. i mean beside USA and kuwait, i can't recognize any of the top 10 countries!

They're all pacific island nations, where to be large is considered a sign of wealth.

When I came back to the states after living in England for years I had forgotten just how fat Americans are. This after living in England, who are probably in the top three fatest in the EU.

As Arabs go Palis are the fitest.

After recently holidaying in Denmark & Norway, I was quite amazed at how fit they are.... There was almost a complete lack of beer bellies/obesity, and those I did encounter spoke with a "more Western" accent unfortunately. Mind you, they seem to cycle everywhere, and their largest pasttimes are apparently hiking/walking and actually doing things outdoors, rather than sitting on their butts watching TV and blankly staring at a screen (which I do now of course :P).

Hi FK24, I appreciate it is not always easy reading something in a second language.
What the post said was that the Saudis are almost as fat as the British. This would make us fatter than you and therefore you closer to perfection in this case than us :-)

Staying fit for Saudi residents is hard, hard work. There are hardly any opportunities. Can't walk a good distance without suffering the effects of hot climate. Food is so available and cheap. Even 'Diet world' seems to sell unhealthy calorific food. Gyms on the other hand are expensive. I think its also in our Arab culture to be generous to guests, so that when you are invited for dinner etc., you are presented with enough food to feed an army. I find myself stuffing my face partly to seem grateful (parting for my love of food).

According to a scientific theory our bodies are made to survive conditions of minimal food availibilty, so that any extra food eaten is stored as fat. But never has food been so available as it is today and hence the epidemic of overwieghtness.

The solutoin is tough

I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Olalude Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him as He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
