What is the most accurate measure to determine if the world is getting fatter? Don’t listen to the so-called medical experts. Don’t even use your intuition.
No, all you have to do is look to Disney.
That’s right, we’re so fat that rides like It’s A Small World are going to be shut down for months of renovation because the boats are hitting the bottom more often than they used to and it’s damaging the boats. There is a direct correlation between the size of our bottoms and the damage on the bottom of the boat’s bottoms.
I recently rode this ride and I am proud to say we didn’t bottom-out. However, for a ride that continually tells us it’s a small world, it sure does seem to take a long time to find out how small it is.
