I'm assuming you don't read through all your tweets, so I'm commenting here to make myself (and the others who were also upset) heard. Your life philosophy is "Don't be a dick" and yet yesterday, you tweeted "I'm not entirely sure what's athletic about an "athletic cut" XXXL shirt." It is possible to be athletic while overweight. Fat people DO go exercise, and I'm assuming would prefer to be clothed while they do so. Seeing as for women, the average size in the US is a 12 and most stores don't carry much above a 14, practically half of the women in the country have a difficult time finding clothing and would be grateful the store you were in DOES carry larger sizes (I don't know the equivalent stats for men). Also, weight is not an absolute measure of health as can be seen in the graph on this website: http://danceswithfat.wordpress.com/2011/12/12/fitness-fathletes-and-thirty-minutes/ Besides that, body snarking is definitely dick-y behavior. Unless you consider fat people to be less than human and therefore not deserving protection under your "Don't be a dick" law.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but you receive a radiation dose just from flying. You're at a higher altitude where the air is thinner and therefore being exposed to more radiation from the sun. If you're worried about your radiation exposure, you shouldn't be flying. Honestly though, you get so little radiation from those sources that I don't know why everyone is making a big deal from it. There are plenty of pilots, flight attendants, medical workers who give xrays and administer radioactive treatments that are all receiving a limited amount of radiation exposure in their daily lives, not to mention the astronauts (who don't have the protection of the Earth's atmosphere). People are scared of radiation because they don't understand it, and can't see it. It's the new witchcraft. Sorry to hear about the rest of the experience though. I wouldn't have wanted to be in your place.
