It would depend if it is really fat or muscle. If it is fat, then it is actually oil, and oil is less dense than water and floats. (Just try pooring olive oil in a glass). However, muscle, bone, and other tissues are either denser than water or not less dense enough to have much boyancy. Since it's really density, not weight, that matters, it also makes a difference how much air is in the floater's lungs. Lastly, it depends on the water. In the salt-rich Dead Sea, for example, basically everyone can float. But in some areas with desolved gas, such as the Bermuda Triangle, sudden changes in density had been known to even sink ships. In a nutshell: You float if you are less dense (density=weight/volume) than water, or another fluid. Fat will make you less dense, muscle is hevier then fat and will either not help or make you sink more.

Usually, because the larger amounts of body fat and/or muscle help maintain body heat.
The U.S. population has approximately 63% overweight people, about half of which are classified as obese.
skinny girls can go to the beach and show there bodies fat girls cant i shouldn't know though i thick
both we love them bout the same
Hey This Is Will.I.Am And Look At The New Blackeyed peas album its tight dog
yes its harder to stay above water and to sink
People lose excess body heat mainly through their lungs and perspiration. Obese people have more mass that must be cooled. Their lungs are no larger than those of thin people,… so all the extra burden of cooling must move through perspiration. In addition, very obese people use more energy to do a similar task compared to thin people. This adds to the overall amount of cooling required. These are not the only reasons; there are more.
sib sob jankety job bang bang wana wana bing bang!
some probably do, but i don't see the point really. in slavic culture being skinny means you're weak, which is kind of bad. But being skinny is unhealthy, you have trouble gai…ning weight and muscle. While fat people have more muscle than skinny people and can gain it easier than mesomorphs. based on this, i would say no, because the only thing that skinny people can brag about are their six packs, which onyl shows because they're skinny.
some wear them because if you find the right shape and size then it looks good on them
Hmm, well in my opinion out of the whole world, I think skinny, but alot of people are big, but i see alot of skinny people.
Whether a person can run fast depends on more than just their weight. A person who is large, healthy and fit could probably run faster than a skinny person who is not healthy… or physically fit.
The reverse, generally.
No. If anything, the opposite. The size of the cells are the same, so a big person has to have more of them.
Fat is less dense than water, while muscle and bone are more dense. A person with a higher fat percentage will displace his weight with less of his volume submerged, so he wil…l float higher.
To young people, yes- to most older people, no because they tend to see the person as a whole and don't base attractiveness on appearance only
