Now THAT sucks

One of the big questions I've had for the past four years was:

If Ariel Sharon has been in a coma since his stroke four years ago... is he still fat?

I mean, he's on an IV drip, no? Don't you lose weight on those things? He's certainly not eating like he used to. I figured that the one good thing for Sharon would be waking up from his coma and discovering himself a hundred pounds lighter. I mean, would that make up for the coma? No. But it would be the one really awesome fringe benefit.

Well, it turns out, he's still fat.

"He looks about the same," says his doctor, Shlomo Segev in this article in the Daily Beast. "You would recognize him."

Man, that sucks.
