Leading popular British radio program “Apparition
Audition “dedicated to supernatural phenomena, received
recently a curious question from one of her listeners. He sounded
as follows: why are there no fat ghosts?
Although the question is not too serious and deserves

users of the site “Reddit”. The man was heading in the evening with
