    “a candle of our lard” – is this a typo or a new liposuction-based energy recovery technique?

    Oh my. If your BMI is high enough that you can easily create candles fom your own fatty tissue, it may be a good time to consider consulting a dietician. Perhaps you guys should start posting more articles on exercise equipment, bicycles, sports, etc…

    Just funnin’ ya. Please don’t banninate me. Thanks. :)
