what has gaithersburg invented?

I've held this stance for a while. The city is home to all the fatties, the suburbs are where it's at anyway.
not sure, i don't really know anything about the place. why do you ask?
Because in his mind, Philadelphia = Gaithersburg.
I could really go for a Bad Analogy Tax right about now.
Do people really think fat people don't get free refills? Fat people and kids are the populations who hit the fountain the hardest. Those populations will continue to drink 40+ oz of soda with every visit.
Saying that Philadelphians don't eat fast food is kind of ridiculous. My office will go to one of three places for lunch; Reading Terminal Market, primos, or the roach coach. None of those places are providing food any less caloric than McD's. You are kidding yourself if you think the FF restaurants aren't packed all day though. Ill snap a picture of the line at Popeye's and McDonalds when I grab a spicy chicken from CFA at lunch today. The line at the Gallery@ME Popeye's looks like the NYSE after an earnings release.
just like the people who go to buffets and have stacks of food, but a diet coke?

Ever hear of a place called NIST?
I bet Gaithersburg's significant inventions per capita per year are higher than Philadelphia's by an order of magnitude, and quite possibly even higher than that. You could not possibly have picked a worse example, given that nobody on this board seems to be from Los Alamos NM.
(Awaiting the inevitable irony: "Butbut you can't count that because it's just some people inventing tons of stuff in Gaithersburg. So it's not really Gaithersburg.")
as a former fatty, i just want to say, I hate all fat people, most of them are completely useless and lazy, and in denial. My sister is obese, and I take every opportunity to ridicule her. If you allow yourself to become obese you deserve no mercy. I say this as someone who has been to the other side. There is no excuse to ever be more than 10-15 pounds overweight.
Actually this weekend we were at a cotillion and I asked my sister "how much do you weigh?" she responds "why?" I said you dont have to give me a number just say something like "less than your average rhino, or hippo but more than large wild boar."

SLIPPERY SLOPE EVERYONE!!!! SLIPPERY SLOPE!!!!!
dude you realize we're talking about the government banning large sodas, right? this IS the slippery slope.
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.

Tiffles was going COTILLION on them bitches! HARDCORE ETIQUETTE LIKE A BOSS.
Still nobody has answered where it ends.
OMG BAN RHETORICAL SLIPPERY SLOPE QUESTIONS!?!?!?
I have no problem with fat people. They just make in shape people like me look better. More sugary drinks for all.
With a society filled with attractive, in-shape people having free sex and smoking legalized pot?
Good luck smoking anything in New York City on Bloomberg's watch!
Yes and having a lot of sex does open up the risk for STDs
like legalizing pot will even matter when doritos are banned.
Wow, that's like a Twilight Zone episode ending. Pot legalized, but all the doritos and funyuns disappear.
They can't ban all breakfast cereal.
