In Japan – your waist owns YOU!

In Japan – your waist owns YOU!

Wow – can you imagine what various civil liberties groups would have a field day with this here in the states?  After all, it couldn’t possibly be your fault or the results of your decisions that you’re overweight…

Japan measures your waist at work

If you fail, your company receives a healthy fine until you get back to the right size.  My favorite quote:

Those exceeding government limits – 33 1/2 inches for men and 35.4 inches for women and suffering from a weight-related ailment will be given dieting guidance if after three months they do not lose weight. If necessary, those people will be steered toward further re-education after six more months.”

“Re-education” sounds pretty awesome to me. Wonder how that works…
