Lose now pay later – OUMERE

Wendy Ouriel

In 1999, I learn a brief story that eternally modified my method of decoding the world. It was a narrative referred to as Lose Now Pay Later.


Within the not too distant future, two women stroll across the mall and discover a new dessert store, referred to as The Well being Brigade, which is open. There isn’t any one inside, simply smooth, shiny machines that dispense these frozen yogurts like treats referred to as Swoodies. The shop is totally automated and all of the desserts inside are free. They fight the Swoodies and discover them to be the very best and most mouthwatering they’ve ever tasted. And addicting.

They return the subsequent day to discover a queue across the nook to get these desserts as a result of the rumor has unfold round city that they’re so good. And free. Increasingly of those automated Well being Brigade shops are opening throughout their metropolis to fulfill demand. Nonetheless, we nonetheless do not see anybody who really works there and the desserts are all the time free. Nobody appears to care.

After leaving the Well being Brigade dessert retailer for his or her every day go to, the women each discover that they’re beginning to placed on weight, and everybody on the town is beginning to bloat too. One of many women lamented that she wished there was a straightforward option to eat all of the Swoodies she wished and never achieve weight.

As they cross the car parking zone, they see a big impartial cabin, like an upright tanning mattress, and a skinny, small and bizarre girl standing subsequent to it. When requested what the system was, she mentioned in an uncommon voice that it was a “thinner” you stroll in and lose undesirable fats. $ 1 / lb.

The woman’s skeptical aspect spoke to her and felt that there was no simple option to drop pounds. Capsules, wraps, fad diets, and so on. don’t work. So neither of them might match right into a machine. The attendant did not care if she frequented her sales space, apparently she did not want their cash and typically that claims the product is so good. It was apparently the Hermes of the parking kiosks.

However finally the woman paid $ 5.00 and located that after coming into and exiting the machine a minute later, she was 5 kilos lighter. Then her buddy gave it a strive they usually suppose they discovered a method out: eat all of the free shit you need, go to that stall, lose the fats, and pay the load loss charge.

After they return to the sales space the day after their every day Swoodie frenzy, the attendant pricks their wrists and makes a everlasting little blue dot. The attendant says that for security causes they need to make a mark on the wrist for each 10 kilos misplaced from the machine. And after a short time, the women discover that the general public round city are beginning to have a “bracelet” of those dots tattooed round their wrists as increasingly of those bizarre cubicles with even weirder attendants begin. to open.

Nonetheless nobody wonders why desserts are free, why nobody runs these well being meals shops, or how these weight reduction machines work.

The story ends with the narrator’s brother worrying about what he sees taking place of their city. He thinks that what is going on is unusual, and that perhaps these Swoodies shops and the Slimmer stands are related. He mentioned they’re run by aliens who harvest human fats from Swoodies, scavenge it of their slimming machines, after which ship it to their residence planet to be used as gasoline. And people little dots are markers to let aliens know which fats turns into much less viable, as a result of the extra fats is taken in, the much less environment friendly it’s for gasoline and finally these folks with distinguished “bracelets” will likely be rounded up and thrown away as trash.

The sister dismissed her brothers’ issues as silly. Why would not the Well being Brigade inform them to cease consuming Swoodies in the event that they weren’t good for them? And if there have been aliens, certainly they might know {that a} human would by no means sacrifice dignity and freedom simply to have the ability to eat dessert whereas nonetheless being enticing. And she will be able to cease consuming Swoodies and going to that machine at any time when she needs.

After which she admired the fragile little bracelet tattooed on her skinny wrist and possibly went again to get extra dessert.


The story above modified the best way I take a look at a variety of issues, however one factor that has modified for me is the best way I take a look at the price of self-importance. There isn’t any free lunch, because the saying goes, and which means right here that beauty procedures value greater than their sticker value. They’ll value you your youth.

The largest beauty process to come back is oral fats removing or cheek discount surgical procedure. In case you have ever questioned how celebrities immediately bought sculpted faces, it’s due to this process. The process merely removes the fats pads within the decrease elements of the cheeks, giving a scooped look that’s related to prime fashions and heroin addicts.

Hole cheeks and excessive cheekbones are the hallmarks of the “mannequin look”

Oral fats removing targets people who find themselves dissatisfied with the roundness of their face, these with a “child face” who need a extra mature look, or who need a extra sculpted look.

So, oral fats removing is primarily aimed toward younger folks, normally teenagers of their early 30s who need that mannequin look, however their biology stands in the best way.

The issue with the process is that it removes the very factor that retains you wanting youthful: the fats in your cheeks.

Since the general public who’ve this process are younger, the outcomes can look nice now. However as you become old, you naturally lose quantity in your face. And oral fats pads maintain that youthful look naturally in your mid-years. With out these fats pads, the face will look lean, saggy and aged. After which it leads folks to have filling that distorts and ages the face much more.

Should you take into account older individuals who look youthful than their age, one factor they’ve in frequent is a naturally fuller face. Older folks with slightly (wholesome) weight look so much youthful than these of the identical age who’re skinny, and that is as a result of the fats in a mature face makes you look youthful.

The dual on the correct weighs greater than his twin on the left. The fullness of her face as a result of addition of facial fats is among the many components that contribute to her youthful look.

The dual on the left weighs 38 kilos lower than the dual on the correct and has extra wrinkles and sagging pores and skin. Twin’s additional weight on the correct gives a little bit of padding for her smile traces and gives a fuller, extra topspin look. The research that supplied these photographs decided that in twins over 40, extra weight makes them look youthful.

The removing of oral fats was comparatively unknown a number of years in the past, and it’s now some of the requested procedures in plastic surgeons’ places of work. And that is due to Instagram. Nobody is happier with their look and that is as a result of these “fashions” bombard very impressionable youngsters and unsuspecting adults with their closely edited photographs manipulated to excessive unrealistic proportions and deceive everybody telling us that it’s their pure look.

And nobody appears to care.

If all you noticed had been footage of individuals with inexperienced pores and skin and had been instructed it is pure and exquisite, you’ll most likely begin to surprise why your pores and skin wasn’t inexperienced and search for methods to alter. your shade. Regardless of how harmful it’s.

And the issue is, while you see a picture, you aren’t getting the entire story. Earlier than and after oral fats injections, make it appear to be a fast and straightforward option to develop into “lovely” and at last be pleased with your self. Simply lose face fats now.

However you’ll have to pay later.

And what nobody is saying is that younger persons are ok to misconceive the long run penalties of their actions, and since younger persons are those present process this process, they’re getting ready themselves for a lifetime of dissatisfaction.

We do not see the long run results of oral fats removing in Instagram photographs, but when the dual research photographs above are any indication, you can be getting older your face and with these fats pads eliminated, you’ll now not be capable to get better them. As soon as you might be sad together with your face once more as a result of it now appears to be like too previous, whereas earlier than it seemed too younger, your solely choice is filling. And it’ll distort and age the face much more.

Some imagine that medical doctors would after all inform you if this process is harmful, doesn’t make you happier as an individual, and causes getting older. However why would they do it? Surgeons are enterprise folks and wish to make cash like everybody else, so why would they flip a consumer away? Simply as these folks main the well being squad would not inform people to cease consuming their Swoodies, medical doctors aren’t going to disclaim a supply of cash. And you’re a nice supply of cash as a result of surgeons are effectively conscious of the habit to beauty surgical procedure. And as soon as inside, you will not come out.

Instagram and these different apps are designed to make us really feel dangerous about ourselves. And but, nobody appears to care. One way or the other, earlier than I am going on Instagram, I am okay with what I’ve, the place I dwell and what I seem like. After which after I am going to the app, abruptly my garments aren’t fairly sufficient, my home is not plush sufficient, and my face is not heat sufficient. And I do know I am not the one one. So what’s going on? Looking for garments or for a plastic surgeon. However the issue right here is deeper, it means dissatisfaction with ourselves, our expectation that garments and purses will resolve our issues and {that a} completely different face will lastly make us pleased with our mirror picture. The short and straightforward answer.

However there isn’t any fast and straightforward repair to deep rooted points, identical to there isn’t any stall we are able to stroll in and lose 10 kilos right away. And naturally folks would sacrifice their dignity and freedom simply to seem like a task mannequin.

However on the finish of the day, this Sisyphus effort for consolation makes us all worse for put on.

You do not want this process.
