Here is a video report on a New Jersey woman whose goal in life is to get to 1,000 pounds! She already weighs over 600 pounds, and currently appears on an internet website to do her eating. There are apparently extremely sick people who pay to watch her eat "in skimpy clothes." In fact, she says people send her food and gift certificates for food to help her reach her 12,000 calories per day goal.
What a story, especially in light of the health care battle going on right now.
