  1. Those grumpy travel stories always crack me up.

    The career earnings w/ obesity was SUPER interesting. I wonder how much of that is causation vs correlation? Like, super successful people don’t take the time to take care of themselves vs moderately successful people do? Would be an interesting study to see the ‘why’.

    • That kind of goes to what we were talking about yesterday with that Reddit thread. Do you have to be attractive to work for a consulting firm? No, but chances are that if you work for a consulting firm, you make enough money for above-average grooming/clothes/etc. However, I also think the causation could come from the “obese people are lazy” stereotype, which then causes discrimination in hiring/promotions etc.
