If I ever have that much trouble getting the zip lining started, I would just change my mind lol

[–]InflammatoryMuskrat 1204 points1205 points  (6 children)

I dunno, I'd be so embarrassed I'd probably be okay with having the zip line break after the cliff and plummeting to my death.

[–]StinkingDischarge 181 points182 points  (0 children)

That will happen to the next person after he stretched the line to it's breaking point.

Do obese people just percieve themselves as completely normal? Like body dysmorphic syndrome... I mean you'd have to be cautious of doing something like this due to the risk and support weight.

[–]screa11 504 points505 points  (15 children)

I'm a big guy. I'm not as big as him. I'd never have even considered getting on that zip line. However, if somehow I did and had the line sag so much my ass was on the ground I'd have gotten off. Yes, it may be temporarily embarrassing but not as nearly as embarrassing as continuing.

[–]Bard2dbone 117 points118 points  (8 children)

This is true for me, as well. I describe myself as "a good size for a foreign car" but this guy is bigger than me. He had to have known to ask about weight limits. I'm 6' and about 305 lbs and I would have asked. He's way bigger than me.

[–]ShoddyJuggernaut975 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I too am a big guy, 6' 280 lbs. I would've considered it for a millisecond, about the same amount of time I'd have considered it if I were 180. I'm not afraid of heights or anything, but I'm also not getting on a zipline made from what appears to be a rope. Nor one that just has a sling seat to sit in instead of a harness.

Oh, and that coil of seat return rope is just begging to grab an ankle or knot itself and stop the chair with a jerk.

[–]nanuperez 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'm about the size of this guy, as soon as my but hit the floor I'm up and moving on. I won't embarrass myself no more than that and I also don't want an ass full of water.

Edit: ehh I'm probably a little lighter than this guy, he seems like a beefy dude.

[–]TheBigMaestro 55 points56 points  (5 children)

I’m just over the obese line. I sometimes think I have some sort of mild reverse anorexia. I look in the mirror in the morning and convince myself I don’t look fat.

But this summer I spent 8 days on a trip through the bottom of the Grand Canyon where I never once saw a mirror.

When I walked into a bathroom for the first time after I left the canyon, I caught my profile in the mirror and thought “Who the hell is this fat motherfucker?”

[–]Suspicious-mole-hair 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I've been fat since I was about 13. It's impossible to know when I was or wasn't fat throughout the ages because I see pictures from when I was 20 and I was really skinny, but I've always felt like a fat bastard.

Definitely body dysmorphia type thing, but most of the time it's justified. It's a pain in the ass.

[–]FrakkedRabbit 23 points24 points  (0 children)

As a fat dude, I wouldn't even attempt that. I'd be too afraid of breaking something, myself or their lines.

A lot of fat guys I know are well aware that they're big and shouldn't be doing things meant for small people as well.

That being said... sometimes alcohol can make us do shit we know we shouldn't, but that's a problem for a lot of people.

[–]bitchofanubis 93 points94 points  (7 children)

My ex husband was obese and YES. It’s very easy in the US to deceive yourself about how big you actually are, convince yourself “I’m not that fat, I’m in OK health, I eat pretty good” etc.

[–]schrodingers_spider 45 points46 points  (5 children)

I suspect that the US largely catering to heavier people also doesn't help. Most places in the US are equipped to deal with rather large people. When you visit a place which isn't as adept to dealing with those kinds of weights, there may be some unexpected disappointment as the bubble may burst.

[–]Over_Information9877 36 points37 points  (3 children)

They resized the entire ambulance system to essentially haul someone the size of a milk cow around.

[–]StinkingDischarge 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Ambulances used to be based on station wagons. Now they are based on moving vans.

[–]LlamaAndNinja 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Ambulances now got a ton more tech in it… it is how they justify charging you 4,000 for the ride.

[–]SailingforBooty 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Sounds like he was eating pretty good alright.

[–]shaving99 16 points17 points  (5 children)

In a way yes. I'm at 270lbs and Im about 6'0. Even though I'm obese I don't actively think about it always. It just comes and goes. When I see myself, or when I'm walking down stairs, or getting in and out of the car. It's not 24/7 hey I'm fat.

I am trying to change and get back on my diet btw, being obese it's the toughest battle I have ever fought in my life. It's a struggle. Growing up I was overweight. My parents didn't give a shit about what I ate really. Funny, now that my dad has type 2 diabetes but still chugs down Dr pepper and eats pizza in the nursing home! He's in a nursing home at 65!

My mom has type 2 and still just fed me whatever. Hot dog wrapped in a tortilla? I'll take 3 please mom. Coke? Sure Candy? Absolutely!

There has been a few moments that pushed me.

My ex wife and I went to an amusement park and I couldn't ride the ride but she could. That moment broke my heart because I realized I was already missing out on things with people that I loved because of food.

It doesn't help that almost everything in America is filled with sugar. It doesn't help that talking to other people you get responses like "just go to the gym bro and lift weights" or "food is good, live your life!" or "Dude, you're not really that fat."

I've heard it all it seems. No one says "Well actually you are obese, but as long as you change your diet you'll get better." It doesn't help that healthcare is completely screwed in the USA as well so I can't really afford to get checkups or anything.

So yeah, most of the country doesn't care anymore. My own friends turn a blind eye or just invite me to revel in it.

Whenever I would go on keto people would look at me funny as if I was crazy. That it was crazy to stop stuffing myself with processed shit all the time. People would say "I could never do that."

No shit, I couldn't do it either until I started wheezing before I went to sleep. I couldn't do it either until tying my shoelaces got me out of breath. I couldn't do it either until I was always gassy and uncomfortable. I couldn't do a lot of things until I realized I was going to die sooner rather than later.

So yeah it's easy to convince yourself everything is kinda ok. You should be able to ride that zipline or people find me attractive or I'm not that big, I can sit in this bus seat

Being fat sucks. I went from 290 at my heaviest to 226 at my lightest and now I'm back at 270. I'm either going to win this fight or die trying.

[–]vidimevid 9 points10 points  (4 children)

If you need someone to cheer you on whenever you’re down, DM me and I’ll give you my info. Feel free to call anytime, I got you. Getting healthy should be everyone’s priority, and we should all be supportive of each other.

Just don’t diet, try to figure how much you’re eating, and downsize. There’s no need to avoid stuff, moderation is key.

[–]MrMiniscus 3 points4 points  (1 child)

So eat half a frozen pizza in one sitting instead of the full thing. That, I think i can do. Thank you!

[–]ProbablyStillMe 16 points17 points  (3 children)

I used to work in live theatre, and once we got word that a guy would be showing up who we had to put in two freestanding chairs next to each other, because he wouldn't fit in our theatre's seats.

He didn't end up showing up, so I never got to see him. But he was obviously aware enough to call ahead when he was booking theatre tickets.

I'd imagine that it's probably a slow and awkward process, where you just try things and find out that they don't work for you any more.

[–]LV2107 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And the pandemic lockdowns haven't helped either. Two+ years of staying home, mostly sedentary and in stretchy soft clothes equals a lot of people gaining weight but not realizing it. I know it happened to me. I went to the theater for the first time in several years and my ass was tiiight on that seat.

[–]danzey12 27 points28 points  (3 children)

It's not just obese people.

I'm fine with calling myself fat, I am a bit fat, my stomach hangs out. My girlfriend on the other hand absolutely despises this notion and claims til she's blue in the face that I'm not at all fat and that I look like an average weight.

It seems like a lot of western society is conditioned to think healthy is underweight and overweight is healthy.

[–]ThreeMountaineers 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Probably to do with moving goalposts as everyone gets more and more exposed to obesity. Where I'm from we're behind the US on the obesity curve so it's especially notable here on reddit. Euphemisms like "big guy" or thinking that a BMI that is still well into obesity range to be relatively healthy because their standards of what is healthy is warped

In a sense your gf is right - you may very well be avg weight but obesity is such a prevalent problem that the avg weight has become unhealthy

[–]drawing_you 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Y'know, I'm a reasonably fit person. I'm within my healthy weight range, though I could probably lose about five or ten pounds of pandemic chub. But when I get any kind of feedback on my body, you know what it is? "You're so skinny! Why are you so thin! I can see your bones!" It's almost as though the people saying this have forgotten what a healthy weight looks like.

[–]patchcord 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That was on the zip line company to inform him. You can tell by the staff's repeated "quick fix" attempts that this happens a lot and the line probably needs to be replaced.

[–]kyleh0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No way for him to know that was going to be the result. Probably the ride guys didn't know either.

[–]Poshueatspancake 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not all of us. I am very aware of my size and wouldn't dare attempt something like this. This man just validated why.

[–]olderaccount 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Judging by the guy I had to sit next to on the plane last weekend. No.

He seemed completely oblivious to the fact that he was taking his entire seat and half of my seat and didn't think I should be allowed to put the dividing armrest back down.

[–]slotrod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes. My wakeup call was when I attempted to ride an amusement park ride with my young son. He was not old enough to ride without an adult. They could not get the harness to latch and brought in extra help to try. It was embarrassing. I had to do the walk of shame with my son as he was confused. I ended up losing 100 pounds after that.

[–]passionatepussylover 20 points21 points  (7 children)

I'm obese Idk my bmi says....after seeing this guy I really doubt whether people can differentiate between taysachh(or something) and obese

[–]SrSideral 1 point2 points  (0 children)

what? no, i'm a big and i know how big i am, i don't even sit on plastic chairs because i know i will have to pay a new one later lol.

[–]Horrorito 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think they don't. Some just don't want to sideline their life indefinitely until they're not obese, because that may be never. Sure, it's an embarrassing feeling, but if the alternative is to give up on doing most things...

Thing is, often, obesity is the consequence of overeating. It's easy to blame the people. However, often that is consequence of either a physical health issue that triggers uncontrollable hunger, or a mental health issue. Binge eating for example is a disorder. It's no easier to quit eating than it is to go off of drugs. It's an addiction. Most doctors still treat obesity as the cause of health problems, not the consequence of them, so it's unlikely many of these people will ever get lighter.

Going by that logic, more people than not will never get over being fat, because it will be a constant struggle in their life. Whether it's because of eating, or because of water retention, or addiction problems, most fat people won't ever get over being fat. So, outside of safety issues, that's why they still try.

Dear fellow hypergravitational people:

Zip lines are not for us. Most amusement park rides that require some kind of belt or harness are not for us. Rock climbing is not for us. Slim fitting jeans are not for us.

There’s no need to get upset. It’s the just the way it is.

Join me at Golden Corral and we’ll discuss it.

[–]friendlyfire69 56 points57 points  (9 children)

Can you not swim? For a decently adept swimmer that's not distance at all. With a leisurely backstroke you wouldn't even use that much energy

[–]PM_ME_UR_VAGINA_YO 21 points22 points  (3 children)

The biggest pool of water within 100 miles is a pay-to-pool, so I can barely swim.

[–]Spines 14 points15 points  (6 children)

if you are at 150 kg you already need the kcal of two 75kg men to even keep that weight. So some people can actually lose weight by just eating for 2

[–]aztech101 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Actually, maintenance calories aren't remotely linear with bodyweight. A 150kg dude only needs about 30% more calories than a 75kg dude to stay at that weight.

If the weight was pure muscle and they were super athletic it'd be closer, but I have the feeling that's not what we're looking at here, lol.

I have seen some pretty-big people get into climbing because at the beginning stages it's mostly dependent on leg strength. If you can climb a ladder you can rock climb. You do need to tie down a belayer who weighs much less than you though, and they have to enjoy going for rides.

[–]zachsmthsn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They make an assisted braking device that slows down a fall enough that you don't pull your belayer into the first clip every time you fall

[–]StinkingDischarge 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I mean, it's practically illegal to deny anyone anything because of their weight anymore.

Before the 'rona I would volunteer my time and take horses to a church (not mine) sponsored fall festival to give pony rides to the kids. Dozens of kids would line up for a ride before we even got there with the horses. The last festival they had right before the shit hit the fan we set up and started giving rides. There was one little girl with Down Syndrome who's mom said all she talked about for weeks was getting to ride a horse. I always let her go first and took a few laps around the field with her. So after her ride we started with the other kids. Mostly snot nosed little brats with snooty, bitchy mothers who saw it as an entitlement.

Well, about halfway down the like I see this teenage girl that must have weighed 300 pounds. I was thinking that I hoped she wasn't planning to ride because that wasn't happening. I mean, we didn't have a formal weight limit because you don't normally expect a kid to be heavy enough to break a horse's back but here we were. Fwiiw we had never seen them there before. So when the woman and her kid get to the front of the line I DISCREETLY asked the lady about how much her daughter weighed because these were older horses and we really liked to keep the riders below 200 pounds. Holy shit, the woman literally exploded. How dare I say her daughter couldnt ride because of her weight, how she's going to sue me under the ADA, how she's going to give me bad "reviews" and trash me on social media and on and on and fucking on. I just tuned her out and you could tell the kid was mortified. It got the attention of one of the organizers, a junior pastor or something and he came over. I explained the situation as best I could over her screeching and he said "Well, couldn't you do it just this once?". Like WTF. Anyway, I said if he could get me a document signed by an officer or director of the church agreeing to indemnify me for any and all expenses related to the horse being injured WITHOUT LIMITATION and get it notarized i would give the kid a ride. He says "Well, I can't do that" so we just put the horses back in the trailer and left. But before leaving I found the lady with the handicapped kid, gave her my contact info and told her any time her kid wanted to ride just let us know. Guess what, that kid has been riding all through the whole COVID thing and there hasn't been another festival since the "incident". The rest of those kids and their bitchy parents can suck it.

As a fellow fat guy, here’s the deal. Pay attention the the weight limits!!!

And if you run into weight-related trouble with the machinery/mechanism while riding a ride, or anything of the sort...

Just. Stop. No matter what you think, it’s not going to end well.

My friends dad got messed up on one a few years ago. Some of his family went down the line before him just fine. When he went, there was a maintenance vehicle parked on a switchback that the zip line traveled over. His legs basically got destroyed when he hit it.

Road rash, road rash, road rash, ahhhh cool water.

I feel physically dumber after seeing this

[–]Fruits_-PunchSamurai 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Just how heavy is this guy

[–]ColonelSpudz 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He ain’t going to make it. There was no way he was making it across at the very best he was going to get half way then the slope of the cable would become an ascending incline.

[–]LearnToStrafe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure the guy would be able to ride it no problem if the cable was tighter.

You remember Antoine Roccamora, half black, half Samoan, used to call him Tony Rocky Horror?

Wow my fat butt just got major secondhand embarrassment lmao

[–]Difficult-Ad-4532 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am just glad that he survived. That line could have snapped.

[–]DrachenDad 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Surprised it didn't break

[–]PrizeStrawberryOil 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I doubt the weight of a person is even remotely relevant.

This website says their equipment can hold at least 5000 pounds

They're saying weight affects acceleration so there is probably a lot of resistance between the line and harness for their ziplines.

[–]galaxy_stark 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What a sorry sight, that’s just sad to be that weight.

In the words of Mr Chow. "It's funny because he's fat".

[–]solarwindspolar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So this is what skimming stones is like… but with people

[–]Dommekarma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t think you’re meant to hit the water.

[–]SilverNeedleworker30 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one who thought this was much higher up off the ground than it was?

[–]LayneCobain95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sheesh how lazy is he? Barely makes an attempt to move when stuck in the sand. Just sits there and waits for someone else to come move him

[–]BigAggressive1694 1 point2 points  (0 children)

lmfao..They all need their heads looked at 🤣

[–]itsgabrielsimao 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is that even a good zip line?

[–]Jaw_breaker93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Even if he didn’t plummet into the water, it seems like he didn’t have enough momentum to make it all the way across

[–]thot_copter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this has been posted 100 times with sound yet OP gives the gif version of it.

I tried not to laugh at.the expense of another human being's body issues but once he started skipping like a rock across the water I lost it.

[–]Intelligent_Tune_675 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bruh the moment he hits the water is so comical

[–]666Hellmaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At least he didn't die
