Gotta envey them sometimes. Granted they can't do soldier like things such as pass a BPFA or BCFT but who needs fitness in this modern army anyway??? Lets think about this for a second. The fat bloke (or bird) can be put into two categories: 1) Downgraded and Fat - not nessecarly entirley their own fault but it still happens 2) Generally Fat - Usually their own fault In both cases the fat person (so as to be gender inspesific ) has got this way due to lack of exercise burning off those lovely meals from the cookhouse. Now it is, in my opinion, impossible (or rather hard at best) to get fat eating 3 square meals a day and just going about your normal work which leads me to conclude that the fat person is infact spending their own money on more food to consume at a time that suits them best. Now for the point I'm getting to . . . fat persons (mainly catagory 2) can save the army money "How is this?" I hear you cry. Well firstly a catagory 2 fat person does not take any more money out of the system than your standard 'I can pass a BPFA/BCFT' soldier. Therefore we are spending the same amount of money at the moment. Here are a list of things that a fat person does not require that the army can get rid of to save money: 1) PTI's/Gym's - lets face it the fat person is fat and isn't interested in PT 2) Warm Kit - a fat person can provide all of this on or about their person 3) Bergens - a fat person can get so many pouches around their webbing that a bergen is no longer required 4) Spare/Emergancy Rations - a fat person can provided their own emergancy rations in the form of body fat . . . failing that they always seem to be able to find a mars bar somewhere . . . 5) Matresses/Blankets - who needs one when you've got all that nice warm fat to bounce around on and keep you warm Another benefit is that fat people are jolly people, they only get put down by skinny people telling them how fat they are. Therefore if the entire Army is fat this problem is eliminated thus reducing bullying and sucides across the Army as a whole. I'm sure there are many more things that the army could save money on through making all it's soldiers fat. Also with the way technology is going it's all going to be robots and bombs before too long so a fat 'playstation generation' soldier will be ideal I rest my case . . .
