    If this study reviewed bmi it is shit, according to the bmi I am overweight with 26.1.

    I am 6 foot tall, weighing 192.5. I have a 32 in waist and can run two miles in 12 min 40 sec. According to bmi I am not doing enough.

    Overweight people are immune to many types of risky health conditions, such as STDs (cause they aren't fucking, get it?), getting hit by a truck while jogging, starvation, people killing them out of envy/jealousy, skin disease (they never take their shirt off at the beach), and so on.

    I'll admit I am not a scientist, but hasn't the risk of dying been running right at 100% for quite a while now?

    Ever notice how cancer and Aids tend to get you real skinny just before you die? Maybe it has to do with that, huh?

    You don't because they die before they get old.
