I'm a genetics student at the University of Glasgow. I like to think I'm funny, and like to laugh, so here I am

I think I wasen't clear enough.
It's not that your genetics make you fat by default no matter what you do, it just makes you more likely to be fat.
As for the example you gave, I've heard of that before, isn't that caused by nerves not working correctly/not being attached at the two ends and thus nos sending the signal or simple the singal never arriving to the brain making you never full?

So, I've just been reading a paper about this, and I'll try and summarize it here. There is a hormone called Lectin produced by fatty tissues. If you have low fat, you have low lectin and this stimulates your hypothalamus, making you want to eat. But when your body fat increases, so does lectin levels, and this should stop you from eating.It 's an example of negative regulation. Many people who are obese are lectin insensitive; they don't respond to the high levels of lectin, and keep eating. There's a subset of people who don't produce enough, with the same effect.

Now, this has clear analogies to diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is where your body doesn't produce insulin, so you can't regulate blood sugar well. This is genetic. Type 2 diabetes is where you eat so much crap, that your cells ignore the insulin, so they can't regulate blood sugar. This is directly related to the diet. This paper that I've been reading says that high-fat diets cause lectin insensitivity, though we're not sure why. He mentions newly westernised countries (he calls them Coca Colanised countries lol) experience a dramatic rise in obesity.

Here is leptin. Everyone is either stupid or fat, based upon their leptin. I am so fat.

I don't still have the link, and I'm about to head out. But it was on nature. A pubmed search should bring it up

It was. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen often enough. Another purpose of the whole guns thing was to be able to defend yourself if needed, so I guess thats still a thing.

Well, ya see, when they wrote it, there were no drones. And guns vs drones is better than homemade weaponry vs drones

With any luck, he'll die of shock. Nah, but really I've changed my google password, so my tablet's signed out. Not to mention, even if he gets passed the pin, as soon as he connects it to the internet, it gets locked again.

Be careful though. He has the hard drive of your laptop. Power or not, the data is there. If they are a bunch of 1337 d0p3 hakrs they could probably end up stealing tons more data like online banking, etc. Right now, changing passwords is the best thing to do.
I'd also recommend telling the police of any people who you think might've done it, if any. People who you'd be somewhat expecting like that one guy who thinks hes tough shit that I know.
Good luck.

Thanks man. All the passwords we could think of are changed, especially banking. I was even logged into FJ on my tablet, so I changed this password too. We literally have no idea who did it, though
