I just had to comment on one news story I just read. Apparently New York subway stoppages are frequently caused by people fainting from lack of food through excessive dieting. Having now lived in New York for two years, I can attest to the obsession many New York residents have for appearances. By comparison Australia is far more relaxed, and far more forgiving of individual dress styles. It seems this dieting fad could be inconveniencing a lot of people.
