This must be investigated!


hat would we do without official inquiries? We’d never know a thing! It seems that the obvious can no longer simply be accepted. Sans an official investigation, it seems we can’t figure anything out—even when the facts seem quite obvious.

Let’s imagine a bizarre situation with extreme and obvious facts that should give us an indication of why the tragedy occurred.


Twenty overweight people gather in one room. They group together in a small area of the room. A rumbling sound comes from the floor and then the floor begins to separate from the walls. Part of the floor collapses. The hefty survivors later tell people that they at first thought it was an earthquake when the floor under them collapsed.

What would be the obvious conclusion as to why the floor collapsed? Could it possibly be that the 20 overweight people were too heavy for the floor to support their weight? Yeah, it seems kind of obvious, doesn’t it?

Apparently not in Sweden where this bizarre situation actually happened to a group of Weight Watcher participants who were gathered for their weekly “weigh-in.” According to London’s daily Telegraph:

The cause of the floor's collapse remains under investigation.

Here’s the story: Weight Watchers clinic floor collapses under dieters I think the folks may want to consider going on a diet. Oh, oops, they already were.
