We live in a country filled with stupid people. Once you're able to come to terms with that, a lot of other things begin to click into place. For instance, once you realize that (around) 70% of the people you know are hilariously, consistently stupid, then you'll no longer be surprised when you hear one of them talking about how all they plan to "eat" for the next few days is paprika, lemon juice, maple syrup, and water because while they're reading this list of almost-condiments, you'll be thinking, "Oh. This person is an idiot. I almost forgot. Continue speaking, idiot. I get it now."
We also live in a country with some incredibly fat and lazy people, so you put two and two together and you have fat people coming up with stupid ideas on how to lose weight, some of which include drinking the urine of a pregnant lady and attaching themselves to a feeding tube that makes them look like they have a terminal disease. I wish the list ended there, but lucky for you, it doesn't.
