"Stone", Philip? Been reading too many of Huw's posts, have you? (That's
161 pounds for those not in the know).
I must be a fatty then. I'm 6' 2" and 174 lbs (just weighed myself to be
C'mon Thomas, what do *you* weigh?
According to the BMI GUIDE ( that is all it is, a guide ) I do not "qualify" as
obese. Yes, you might be able to call me overweight. Guess that all depends.I
fit into a "gray area" in that guide. Is a foot ball player at 230 overweight?
How bout a heavy weight boxer? Body builder? Are you a "qualified" doctor and
know enough about me to make that determination? I'm not clairvoyant, but I'll
be able to make a very safe bet you do not. There is a lot more than a BMI guide

defensive reaction and that made it funny. Same reason Philip® did it too.
Short bus kid? Who's he and where'd he come in to this?
The percentage our American population who qualify as obese has been
increasing over the study period identified in the article. ALSO,
these same persons are MORE obese than ever before.
Perhaps it is also the point you took personal offense. ;-)
On the way to being "grossly" obese, there is an span of overweights

As he does, there's a horrendous ripping fabric sound....
The astonished woman says.. "Oh my God! I didn't know jeans could
