Why Heavy Metal is called heavy — 9 Comments

  1. Betty Windsor lives under the final approach to Heathrow when she is out at her castle and she's not fat. If those scientists are right, she must starve herself when she is in her flat on the Mall

    • She would have a load of staff to listen to the planes for her.  They get fat and she remains slim.  Where would we be without staff?

  2. A classic case of the post hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacy. Or in other words, correlation is not causation.

    • Surely these so called "learned" people could spot that?  Or do they think we're all idiots?

  3. I wouldn't call Keith Richards obese. I'm surprised he's still alive, right enough, but I wouldn't call him obese.

    • Can you name any overweight ageing rock performer?  I can only think of Meat Loaf.

  4. It some ways noise does cause obesity. Maybe not directly but indirectly you might say. Perhaps those who cannot control their own eating habits are haunted by the sounds they may hear every single day.

    To wit:

    The sound of hamburger frying.

    The sound of the fryer timer in a fats…er…fast food joint beeping raucously indicating a fresh batch of fries (chips) is ready.

    The sound of a cash register as it rings out 6 multi-packs of Mars Bars, 6 family size bags of Cheez Puffs and 24 pack of diet(?) soda (name your brand) in preparation for an evening movie marathon–again.

    The sound of the pizza delivery guy knocking on their door with a lovely large "The works and the kitchen sink thrown in" pizza just for them.

    The hiss/snap sound as they open their first of many beers for the weekend (can't wait for the pizza dude to get here and where the hell are my Cheez Puffs?).


    Not too sure where this comment is going so I'm going to stop now. (living is the main cause of death but don't tell the media)
