mets300 tells us more.
Hey guys op here again. I was so overtired that I couldn't quite put it together that one should in fact unfold a folding chair to properly use it. I should have made this clear, I suppose, based on the colossal backlash I've received. Thanks, all.

9- according to this (http://www.globalpost.com/photo-galleries/5682400/top-10-most-obese-countries-the-world-photos#8) we are not even in the top 5 most obese countries, so I don't know if that is true. Then again I don't know how accurate that website is. It claims it gets it's numbers from the World Health Organization. Edit - I didn't see the world "major", in which case we are.
#20, out of the 10 countries listed there, how many other than the US have you even heard of before? For me, only the Dominican, which came in at number 10, have I heard of before looking through that. I'm fairly certain I wouldn't consider the Dominican to be a major country either.
If you're looking at sheer laziness and not obesity (the two have different contributing factors, generally speaking), US has some of the hardest-working people of the industrialized, western world as far as a typical work week and work year go. Your employer can make you work year round with minimal rest in the US, whereas most other industrialized western countries get a government mandated minimum amount of vacation time (3-5 weeks worth, from what I've seen).
69 - The US doesn't have any mandated government holidays. We have ten federal holidays that all government organizations observe, but private industry can choose not to: New Year's Day, MLK Day, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. If you're referring to "holiday" as in vacation; private sectors don't have to have any vacation days for their employees if they choose not to.
If you opened it normally, then you would have had to expend effort. And who would want to do that.
7- *Raises sunglasses* It's pathetic. You only live once....so do it right the first time! That level of laziness doesn't deserve to be excused with some stupid quip, it deserves to be hit with a bucket of ice water and given a motivational kick in the ass. ;p Just my limited opinion. ;)
Don't ever take Perdix seriously. If you think he actually means 'YOLO' to this FML, then you haven't been around FML long enough to know that 99% of the time, Perdix is sarcastic and/or satirical. He's a satirical person.. He's not actually stupid enough to give into the YOLO or think this is a legit 'YOLO' occasion.
105- Lol, it may surprise you to know but I actually am a fan of Perdix's commentary and charm. :) Having been reading what he comes up with for a year and a half now, I learned early on how he's here for the humourous contribution alone. In this particular fml however, my deep annoyance with the Op leaked through everything I said, but I wasn't attacking Perdix personally. :) Perdix, sorry if came out like that buddy! (hugs!) ;)
