I blame the attitude of English people for this obesity crisis, until I finished high school, my mum and dad made me walk a mile to school, recently I met somebody at college whose mum had to drive him there even though he lives a few yards from home. thats what I call lazyness of the English people

This is not a modern or new phenomenon at all. I have watched old films driver parents delivering students at school gates. The phenomenon was born just a few years after the invention and popularization of cars. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:52, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
