That BMI at that height would make him 107.6 kg, which means his real BMI is still over 30 making him clinically obese.

I just thought it was funny that a letter got sent to a man, on Government letterhead, telling him his BMI was 28,000 against a scale which is only really defined up to about 39 or 40. The man is Liverpudlian, we can take it as read that he’s a car crash of actual health issues. The BMI system is a clumsy, shitty tool that provides less useful information that just looking at someone. The joke is the admin, not the fatness.

I think it makes sense that they're employing automated systems to do all this. By the end of this there'll have been tens of millions of letters sent and vaccination appointments made. It doesn't make sense for a human to look at every letter.

Also, BMI is a perfectly useful tool for population analysis even if it falters at the extremes, because it's based on two measurements that are easy to take accurately during GP visits. There is consistent findings that high and low BMI correlate with all-cause mortality. Sure, there are better ratios that predict stuff like cardiovascular disease and diabetes, but they rely on measurements that are more difficult to take consistently and keep track of.

When I first read the Wikipedia entry, I thought it said this is a "metaphoric amphibian." Maybe I need stronger reading glasses...

I bet you could find inorganic epsom salt at the Dollar Tree. I’m pretty sure even their bottled water has lead somehow.

I only consume gluten-free, GMO-free, organic, vegan lead made by a black lesbian poet. Sure, it’s a little pricier, but you can’t put a price on being better than everyone else.

You know how Mormons have their magic underwear? Apparently they get to wear it once they've taken part in the endowment ceremony.

Is that a ceremony where they get their dicks measured?

Also, have you come across any Mormon role play porn? It’s kinda hot.
