Ok, not me, personally. I asked this question back in 2010 when the article was first put out. I wonder if women have changed their opinion as a whole. What about you?
Would you rather be let's say.... 300lbs or would you rather be hit by a truck? (For argument's sake, a small Uhaul.)

ETA: I want you to really think about this. Are either something you'd do after you won the super bowl? No. But let's say you HAVE to choose one or the other.
Secondly, I want you to examine your motive on why you chose one or the other.
How important is our vanity? How important is being acceptable and desired?

Here's the article, can't make it clicky:

I am overweight but not extremely. I would never allow myself to become 300 pounds therefore to answer your question, neither.

If I were 300 lbs I could lose at least 120 in a year, and 180 in a total of 2 years.  And then be skinny again. Whereas if I were hit by a trick, I'd probably ended up being fat since I was paralyzed in adult diapers. So being fat makes the most sense.

I would rather be 300 pounds when a truck hit me...more cushioning.

Suspend your disbelief momentarily. An evil genie appears and demands you choose one- fat or truck. If you don't, tiny puppies will be slaughtered in front of your children.
If you won't answer accordingly, don't answer at all.

I was up to 240 at my heaviest, and I have been hit by a truck.  Neither is pleasant, but id say you need a serious readjustment of your priorities.

Is there a third choice? Because, I honestly wouldn't want to be 300lbs. or hit by a truck.

Not all who are paralyzed become overweight. Nor is there any promise of you surviving the collision.

Sometimes being overweight makes you feel like you've been hit by a truck.
