Do people still use BMI? In an age where most men lift weights, its practically useless.

Most, men? Hmmm

My generation does at least. Though i've been seeing a lot of fat kids lately.

I'm big boned (I swear)...  My weight doesn't correspond to other people's weight.  I have broad shoulders and thicker bones than most.  So someone that is near my height or a few inches shorter can weigh 20-30 lbs less than me even though they have a huge belly...  I still have 20-30 lbs to drop though but I am working hard at it (work out every day and my job requires you to stand/move around pretty much the entire 8-12 hour shift).  I gain a lot of weight when I get laid off (drinking too much alcohol and not doing any exercise) but then drop it after a few months of work.

Normal weight for me would be around 210-220 lbs (6'2" pretty much 3").  If I go under 200 lbs then I start looking like I am starving.

At that height and weight, if you lifted a bit, you could make for a good forward.



for a second i thought this was about ps3 numbers

Forward for soccer (football) or basketball?  Basketball I wouldn't be that great considering I'm white and white people can't jump... Well at least I can't (I can shoot pretty decent though).  I played soccer for about 12+ years when I was a kid.  My favorite position was sweeper/stopper since I am a pretty good defender.  I would even push up the field and go on offense (had to run back quick if we lost the ball) if I got frustrated with team not doing anything on offense (this was in rec league, year I played travel team (more competitive) I had to stay in my position.  I played forward a lot too.  Sadly my soccer skills have probably gone down hill but with some practice I'm sure I could return to form or near there.

40+ countries counting Poland, Ukraine, Micronesia and such ?

Beside, their average is under 25, so it can't be called fat by definition. Not even overweight. 

40+ countries in Europe.

What does the bolded mean? Doesn't make any sense to me at the moment.


25 = the BMI

You are considered overweight over 25. Obese over 30.

Underweight is under 18.

I meant for Rugby Union or League, but I keep forgetting that it isn't too big in America.

Ah I always wanted to try rugby out.  Looks like a very grueling sport.  I wouldn't mind bulldozing over people.  However, there are some huge guys in the sport which would probably flatten me out.  I don't think there are any rec rugby leagues in USA (or at least Austin, Texas) probably due to the concern of injury (or lack of interest).  It would be cool to form a league though.  I don't have the greatest knowledge on all the rules in rugby.  I find it funny when they all line up in the circle and start pushing each other.  I'm pretty clueless when it comes to rugby and wondered why the start is like that.

I fell for it too.  I was like what system are they talking about (has to be Sony since mainland Europe)...  So there is less population in Germany and PS3 is now overtracked.  VGC must use attachment rates for each German.  VGC - 35% of Germans own a PS3 so population being 1.5m overtracked = less PS3 actually sold.
