Not sure what to make of this thread, but it does generally seem to be a fun discussion among a variety of subjects that you have brought up, KJ!
I like responding to both "the variety of subjects," and on "weight loss subjects." I learn a lot of things from other members regarding health, fitness and diet (besides other things), but I can't say that I've been inclined to lose more weight because of the threads.
For me, the threads are fun, they keep me up-to-date on news items, and they give me a chance to think about my own opinion of things.
So, is this for real? I'd say SO!
