9/19    In a British television first, Body Hell takes viewers inside the bathro\
oms of female celebrities and everyday women as they pluck, squeeze and shave th\
eir bodies to within an inch of their lives. The series also asks why 98 per cen\
t of women hate their bodies when they are perfectly normal and attractive. Uniq\
ue in its genre, Body Hell does not attempt to make women over, but rather encou\
rages them to love and accept their bodies

The focus of s opening edition is breasts, and there are plenty of women eager t\
o get some real issues off their chests. Kate Lawler, Big  winner and presenter\
RI:, finds out what it is like to have larger breasts; viewers get a insight int\
o the life of the woman with s biggest breasts; and one brave soul takes us into\
 the taboo world of chest and nipple hair, explaining why she is prepared to reveal all.

Glamour model Jordan is reputed to boast a 34FF chest, but even hers is dwarfed\
by the breasts belonging to 42-year-old professional singer Jenessa. Bra-makers\
to the Queen, Rigby and Peller, have measured Jenessa at an incredible 36L, but\
she still squeezes herself into a 36-38JJ bra! She has to wear custom-made bras\
50 a pop, gym and aerobics sessions are fraught with danger and she worries abou\
t embarrassing her son when she goes swimming.

TV presenter Big  winner Kate Lawler has the opposite problem to Jenessa. Her tw\
in, Karen, has a DD cup, but s chest is much smaller. In s programme she talks a\
bout the advantages and disadvantages of her size, has her breasts digitally enl\
arged, experiments chicken  in her bra and goes corset-shopping with Karen. Kate\
 has been considering a breast augmentation for the past five years filletswith\

Having a baby is not the only thing that can make women unhappy with their breas\
ts. The still-taboo subject of female chest hair is something that make-up artis\

they suffer from the condition. s problem is so bad that it has ruined past rela\
tionships Nicolatupid healthcare ideas as a major part of her platform then I
        will certainly not vote for her. Requiring all Americans to
        present proof of health insurance is beyond ridiculous and, to me,
        very un-American.

9/19    How many of your moms act weird? My mom has been calling/harrasing
        me lately. A typical call would go something like this:
        -I'm sick, I need to go to the hospital (she can't drive, can't
         speak English)
        -I will probably feel better after I nap
        -You kids take care of yourselves
        -I don't want to go to the hospital, I'm perfectly ok!
        -I just want to take a nap call, it's ok I'm fine.
        -But if I don't feel well I'll go to the hospital soon
        -You kids need to learn to care take of yourselves (hello, I've
         been living alone and supporting and taking care of myself
         for over 10 years, if anything I'm the one providing)
        -I can't read my letters (old age). No I don't need glasses I'm
         perfectly healthy! I was the only person in college who didn't
         need glasses, I still have 20/20 (bullshit!)
        -Why do you sound so impatient, gosh I wish I never called you
         (I'm at work and she calls me at the most inopportune moments)
        She's nearing 70 and it's been 20 years since her menopause
        and she acts crazier and crazier every year. Her tone and
        demeaner... it's like she wants me to suffer mentally with her
        or something.
        \_ just TASE her
        \_ You haven't met my mom.
        \_ My mom got drunk and tried to shoot my dad with a shotgun.
           No joke. But it wasn't loaded. She also once came around my
           house and banged on my door shouting that I was a pedophile,
           for the benefit of my neighbors.
           \_ THANK YOU. You made me laugh and made me feel a LOT
              better and less bitter about my mom.              -op
           \_ SHOTGUN??? Are you from Tennessee or Alabama by any chance?
              \_ Are you an idiot?  A shotgun is arguably *the* best home
                 defense weapon, especially when loaded with shot that won't
                 penetrate 2 layers of sheet rock.
        \_ This is why I think all the futurists that claim "People born today
           will live forever!" are idiots.  Even if we could figure out how to fix
           everything else, the brain deteriorates past about 60.  What's the
           will live forever!" are idiots.  Even if we could figure out how
           to fix
           everything else, the brain deteriorates past about 20.  What's the
           point in being a 200 year old vegetable?
           \_ If you assume what futurists assume about the promise of stem
              cells, you may be able to constantly regenerate your brain.
              \_ Like I said, idiots.
           \_ That's ok, it might take that long to recover my SS taxes.
        \_ My Dad is doing some of the same kind of whacked out stuff:
           - Calls 911 and reports that he is having a heart attack, then
             attacks the paramedics when they arrive.
           - He is a retired peace officer, so instead of arresting him they
             5150, then 5250 him and lock him up in the psych ward for two weeks\
           - Immediately on getting out, he sells his house and moves waaay out
             in the desert, living like the Unabomber.
           - Now he calls me all the time and complains how lonely he is and
             how he is thinking about shooting himself.
           And he is only 64!
           \_ Ha ha ha that is pretty hilarious and actually not that
              uncommon! Welcome to the new age, where we have advanced
              medical technology that'll extend lives of old people so
              that they can live miserably longer, and spread their
              misery to people around them.     -guy in similar situation
        \_ My parents are really normal in the 70s and 80s.  Good luck.
           \_ Different people age differently. We didn't have all these
              age problems till people started living longer.
              People from my dad's side age normally, but almost everyone
              on my mom's side become crazy after they're in their late
              30s. I guess I'll find out if I'll be normal or not very
              soon. In the worst case, I'm a "carrier" of crazy genes.
        \_ What culture or ethnicity are these parents in question?
           \_ Chinese.                                  -op
              \_ I guessed as much. Mercury, selenium, and other heavy
                 metals poisoning?
                 \_ Uh, how the hell would I know? And I don't think it's
                    environmental because there are just as many crazy
                    assed Asian Americans (born in the US) as FOBs.
            \_ 5th or 6th generation white American. Mostly German.
                    \_ It's the fish. Those heavy metals accumulate in
                       all the fish they eat.
                       \_ No you FUCKING DUMB ASS. As I said before crazy
                          assed Asian Americans (who have the same diet as
                          everyone else, you know, KFC, McD, Burger King,
                          Olive Gardens, Soup Plantation, etc) are
                          just as crazy as FOBs.
                          \_ Asian Americans still eat a lot of fish as
                             compared to the populace at large.
            \_ 5th or 6th generation white American. Mostly German. -pp
               \_ These are the rednecks with the guns?
               \_ Does this explain the massive accounts of crazy Heil
                  German behaviors reported on Yahoo Odd News every day?
                  \_ On Loveline they used to play a game where they read
                     some crazy ass (but true) story and ask: "Florida
                     or Germany?"
