I see a physics problem here.


Former sumo wrestler Konishiki appears with Chie Iijima, for a press conference to announce their marriage at a Tokyo hotel Monday, Jan. 12, 2004 after Konishiki registered his marriage to the 28-year-old former medical worker Jan. 7. Konishiki, a native of Hawaii, who was the first foreign-born sumo wrestler to attain the second-highest rank of ozeki, has taken up a career as a TV celebrity in Japan since retiring from sumo in 1997.

The situation is perfect for her - she gets to marry a celebrity without having to worry about marital relations which are physically impossible. Watch for her debut album soon.

Hmmm, if he rolls over in bed I think she might get crushed.

OT: Did anybody see how many kittens were killed on the Simpsons last night?

If he is lying on his back, he won't be able to roll over.

Wow. They look like the number "10" walking next to each other.

All you physics fans - does "G = 6.67259 × 10^-11 m^3 s^-2 kg^-1" mean anything here?

So who else here wonders what will happen if these two lovebirds have a falling out? Will they get a divorce or will he just eat her?

No, he'll kill her and hide the body in a fold of fat.

Yep... She isn't "walking" per se, she's orbiting him.

maybe...

Wow

Here is what I am thinking… she had to have married him for his fame… so if HE can get a girl that looks like that “Note: she is not all that or much of anything close… BUT” I have to wonder if on a comparative scale, if that is what he can get, maybe I should move… I wonder how hot of a woman I could end up with?

According to my 6' - 2" friend that taught english in Japan, you can get some pretty hot women. They are crazy for the American men. He had to beat them away with a stick.
