California, the "hippy" state, has a plan to get rid of obesity via... (brace yourself)... STERILIZATION of overweight men!
The idea is that if you deem clinically, obese men to be "inferior" (almost has a hint of "nazi" in it, right?), through sterilization (via a free state-sponsored vasectomy) you can eliminate their genetic influence on the "normal" human race.
Read it here.
What? You have a problem with that? Maybe they'll sterilize anyone who catches a cold? Think of all the money will be saved from unused sick days, healthcare, and orange juice.
Next, people who snort when they laugh. SNIP!!
Update: (2:33 PM)
Although I earlier gave it a quick "once over", to see if it was real, I now think the story is bogus. I'm still investigating.
