The first (and probably last) Fat Guy Olympics is the cornerstone of this episode that focuses on the uncomfortably cozy relationship between the medical establishment and the weight-loss industry.

Neither the subject matter nor the presentation will be to everyone's taste. In fact, some will move to another selection within minutes. But for those who can tolerate this series, they will be rewarded with some downright clever humor, some in-depth and well researched content, and the satisfaction of learning some things you thought you knew, but have now discovered look entirely different when viewed from the Penn & Teller perspective. Try it. You may like it. Really, you might.

Wow, I had no idea that Mount Rushmoore had all that history. I am exceptionally ashamed of it now.

Briefly; my ancestors came over to help establish this nation before the breakaway from England, and served under the direct command of commander in chief, General George Washington during the revolution.

Knowing the mindset of the prejudiced mind who, on top of having a disposition to prejudgment, has a concept and vision of how things are supposed to be ordered, I am not surprised, though highly disappointed, that the Mount Rushmore monument has the history that it does. Yet it seems to be a selling point for what I would characterize as well meaning and good hearted, though plainly ignorant, Americans of what Rushmoore was supposed to symbolize.

At the same time, I do kind of shrug at it. If this is still a locus of sacred Earth for the Native American people of the North American continent, then I think it may be high time to bring a referrendum to the American people to decide the fate of this sculpture.

I will say this; that the Founding Fathers were men. They were no gods nor even demi-gods. They did not all get along with one another. They argued and fought over deep, profound and superficial differences in thoughts and in convictions that they were right. One of the things they all agreed on, however, was to dispose of any facsimile with Great Britain. This included barring the naming of ships, places and other things after people to as ensure that the deification of their personalities, or anyone to come in the future, would not take hold in this country.

How disappointing that we have aircraft carriers named after presidents, and one founding member of congress, Doctor Benjamin Franklin.

I don't really agree with them on everything. However, I love the way they state things. I also truly admire and respect their acceptance of others.
