Just A Thought

You know how you can build up an immunity to things? That’s how vaccines work, you know – they give you a little bit of the disease and your body learns how to fight it so when the real thing comes along, your body can beat it. It seems to be kind of the same way with other things, too. I don’t know first-hand, but I’m told that your body gets used to alcohol after you’ve been drinking for a while, so it takes more of it to affect you.

So what I’m wondering is, why can’t my body build up a tolerance for, say, Oreos? You know, where once it would take me 10 in one sitting to get fatter, maybe now it should take, like, 25 of them. Any scientists out there want to answer that for me?
