    Oh yeah. I just find it funny. Totally not accurate in ANY way. At least they disclaim a little at the top.

    According to the Air force I'm 22% body fat, but I can see the top row of abs and intercostals. They measure your neck and your gut at the bellybutton and subtract neck from gut. If the difference is more than a certain amount you're fat.

    I'm not too worried about it. If they want to kick me out, fine. I could make way more money doing the same thing on the outside. The funny part is, I always had a tiny waist before doing squats and deads. I guess powerlifting makes you fat.

    I think any BBer out there is one fat bastard according to the BMI. Didn't Arnold S. measure a 35-36 on his BMI? Man, he's REALLY fat

    OMG!

    Maybe this explains the report that says 60% of the US is obese, maybe the U.S. is really just 60% weight lifters!!

    ....


    Edit:
    Nevermind, just went to the mall.... the U.S. general populace is still fat as ****.

    Can you imagine, according to this a healthy 6'8" range is 170 to 220. 220 is better but I still consider that very light for someone 6'8". I don't think 170 is healthy weight for someone 6'8" tall. I mean anyone running around my town like that is usually running around with a glass d*ck in their pocket bumming for some money (for those who don't understand, a crackhead, and no offense to anyone on this board who is actually 6'8" and 170).

    Crackhead: You got a dollar so I can get some food.
    Me: No, get the hell out of here.
    Crackhead: Come on man, hook me up.
    Me: No. What the hell happened to your teeth.
    Crackhead: Oh, I smoked them too!!!

    I think 70% of NBA players are overweight too. The BMI is the biggest load of crap and anyone that takes it seriously for any application needs to be beaten with a giant stick.
