The 2,404,193rd sign of the coming American apocalypse...

Here in the United States of America, we have access to the most powerful and advanced medical equipment in the world. Hospitals are well-stocked with fancy life-saving tools which, if used promptly, can detect all manner of disorders before they reach the critical stage. Engineers and inventors are busy refining these wonderful creations to make them even more amazing, and—with any luck—we will one day have a government which will make it a priority to provide universal access to these brilliant, expensive, miracle-working machines.

But by then we may be too fat to fit in them. It’s a strange world we live in.
