Which also got me thinking... I've never taken and never will take financial advice from broke people.
Yes, nutritional advice and financial advice can still be wrong when given by in shape and financial sound individuals. But it's almost guaranteed to be wrong when it's given by a fat broke person.
While it's easier to see if somebody is out of shape, it's much harder to see the financial shape that your financial advisor is in, since he doesn't wear his net worth around his waste. Be cautious!
