I feel BMI would be the more interesting statistic here really.

Same here Helio! For my height and weight my BMI says I am obese as well, and I'm pretty sure that's not the case. I do have an 11lb head though.

My physics weight is higher than my normal weight... Can't wait to be done with classes and TAing so that I have a more flexible schedule.

Pounds? Pffft. This poll should be in electron volts.

It's because I'm *** awesome. My irrelevant one-liners and numerous non-sequiturs.... blah blah... I'm not sure where I was going with that.
