The U.S. is the most obese nation in the world, just ahead of Mexico

Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fattest country in the world? Ouch.

The obesity rate for American adults (aged 15 and over) came in at a whopping 38.2%, which puts the birthplace of the hamburger and the Cronut at the top of the heftiest-nations-in-the-world rankings, according to an updated survey from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Running at a not-too-close second is border pal Mexico, with 32.4% of population considered obese, followed by New Zealand, Hungary and Australia (the U.K. comes in at No. 6). The skinniest nations are Japan, with a tiny 3.7% of the population tipping the scales, followed by India, Korea, Indonesia and China. And across much of Europe, less than 20% of the population can be considered obese, according to the survey that was released Thursday.

11-year-old girl 'forced to marry her rapist' from church in Florida

Sherry Johnson says she was raped four times by age 10

Emily Shugermln, New York

A woman from Florida has claimed she was forced to marry her rapist at age 11.

Sherry Johnson says she was raped four times by members of her family’s church congregation as a child. As a result, she became pregnant at age 10.

When investigators began looking into her case, she claims her family tried to protect her rapist by forcing her to marry him.

“My mom asked me if I wanted to get married, and I said, ‘I don’t know, what is marriage, how do I act like a wife?’” Ms Johnson told The New York Times. “She said, ‘Well, I guess you’re just going to get married.’”

Florida is one of 27 US states that permits children of any age to be married with their parents’ permission.


The USA is not a first world country.


Bar Uses Brilliant Sign to Shut Down Creepy Dudes

To cut down on creepy interactions from male patrons, the employees at the Beer Cellar in Exeter, England put this sign on the bar:

Beer Cellar Exeter‏
This is definitely our favourite sign in the bar. Also if dudes could stop trying to kiss our female bartender's hands that would be great.

One of the bartenders, Lauren Dew, tells Munchies: “We put it up a few months ago after a pretty rough weekend... We had to toss out a guy who was harassing myself and another female bartender." Most customers love the new sign, although Drew says that they’ve received a few complaints “from the guys who need the sign most of all.”

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly went on “Meet the Press” Sunday to condemn the leaking of information about the Manchester bombing by fellow officials in the regime of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп. The leaks have forced English counterterrorism forces to stop sharing information with their U.S. counterparts.

Kelly said that intelligence leaks from his fellow Трамп regime officials related to the recent Manchester attack are, “darn close to treason.

I guess this in contrast to the activities of Paul Manafort, Carter Page, Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner and a whole host of other people in the regime which are definitely Treason.

United sorry for falsely accusing gay father of fondling his child

(CNN)United Airlines is apologizing again for their treatment of a passenger.

Henry Amador-Batten, a gay father flying to his North Carolina home last Saturday, was accused by United flight attendants of inappropriately touching his son on the flight, setting off a police investigation and angering the boy's fathers.

"This is not how anyone deserves to be treated," Amador-Batten's husband, Joel, wrote in a Facebook post for their gay parenting blog DADsquared.

"This is not something that should have happened in front of my son. This is not something that anyone should have to worry about happening to them on a flight just because someone might not like the looks of them."
