Old friend of the show, Gus Willman, stops by to hang with Tim and end the week the right way – nothing too serious. The two first talk about how the Boyscouts are modifiying their structure to include girls. Tim thinks it’s kinda weird, but Gus doesn’t have much of a problem with it.
The two also discuss how the worldwide childhood obesity rate is at all time highs, which could be both good and bad. It shows that more of the world is at least getting enough food. Unfortunately, it also shows that more of the world is eating the WRONG food.
There’s something in our DNA that makes us want to eat as much as possible, because thousands of years ago we didn’t know when we’d be able to eat next. That instinct is still in us, even though the grocery store is just down the block, and McDonald’s is even closer.
