Forget heart problem and diabetes, falling through the floor is the new danger of obesity.

"As a Weight Watchers group gathered for a routine weigh-in, the dieters got an idea of how far they still had to go: The floor underneath them collapsed"

Ouch... you'd think a business called "Weight Watchers" would have reinforced flooring. It seems like common sense.

Hahaha, imagine that. Somebody being so fat they break the floor. xD Well I guess it is entirely possible, considering how big some people get these days.

20 extremely obese people, Swedes no less (Daim is irresistible), all concentrated in a room. Over time it was bound to collapse.

I thought it was funny.

The floor coming through isn't something you'd usually be worried about. I wouldn't see myself wondering why I'd let the floor be so weakened until after it fell in.
