    I like the pairing of the first and last posts. Dieting successfully allows you to live longer, but people won’t do it even if you pay them.

    Speaking of monkeys, did anyone see this nonprofit ploy for raising money: A zoo threatens to kill the monkeys if they don’t get more money: http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2009/07/13/patrick_accuses_zoo_officials_of_using_scare_tactics/?s_campaign=8315

    Bruce, it works for monkeys because they are kept in a cage. They diet because they have no choice.

    Sixty dollars wouldn’t induce me to do much either.

    Larry, the zoo should try opening a specialty bush meat restaurant. Maybe they could turn it into a sustainable enterprise.
