I drove by Hutch's house a couple of weeks ago and the yard looked pretty good.  Our public shaming of him totally worked.
YOU'RE WELCOME!


So you're acknowledging that it was indeed you who sent hutch the porn, thus setting off the chain of events that ended with him inadvertently posting his address here and subjecting himself to public shaming?
uh, no. I just made hay out of what he posted.

I'm 5'9 and weight 175 pounds so I guess I'm fat too.
There are certain folks (such as yourself if that photo is legit) who are clearly swole and BMI doesn't apply to. This applies to 0.0003% of all people with a >25 BMI.

a little knowledge for the fat-hating simpletons: it's actually 12% for men.  that's about 1 in 8... definitely not everyone, but more common than you state. 

here, suck on some science: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/projects/cp/summer-of-science-2015/latest/how-often-is-bmi-misleading (a follow up to http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/projects/cp/summer-of-science-2015/latest/bmi)

"B.M.I. is commonly used to classify people as overweight or obese because its components, height and weight, are much easier to directly measure than body fat percentage. Affordable and convenient methods of measuring body fat are inaccurate, and more precise tools like a DXA scan are expensive and inconvenient.

The consequence is that some perfectly healthy high-B.M.I. people might be unnecessarily worried about their weight or penalized by higher insurance premiums. And some normal-B.M.I. people may be fatter than they realize and facing the same health risks as the obese."

Yes, BMI is an imperfect measure. Body fat percentage is much better. Body fat percentage is also not easily measurable. People delude themselves all the time that "it's muscle" when clearly it is not. When a person's BMI matches up with what they look like, that's a pretty strong 1-2 punch.

We do not have a great epidemic in this country of healthy people unnecessarily worrying about a false high BMI number. We DO have a great epidemic of delusional hambeasts who disregard appropriate obese BMI readings because "it's an imperfect measurement, I am the one and special exception with my big bones and condishuns!"

You'll also notice that among women, the false positive rate* is 3%, which is really quite good. The people shouting down BMI and proclaiming HEALTHY AT ANY SIZE are predominately women.

EDIT: * - I am defining the false positive rate as only those who have "healthy" body fat percentages but overweight/obese BMI readings. If anything, BMI understates people's obesity.

Who else here is starting to think that Julian, at some point in his over-privileged youth, gave his whole soul and being for the love of some plus size ingenue, only to see her callously rip out his heart (and deep fry and eat it)?  It would explain a lot, really.

I've always been firmly "no fatties," thank you very much.

So, I usually pack a lunch but I left it in my fridge this morning and decided to go out to a Mexican restaurant about a half mile from my office. It always looked packed so I figured it was probably pretty good. I order a mushroom quesadilla and rice. When it comes, it looks pretty good, I start eating, quesadilla is pretty OK. Then I go for some rice and I go, "wait, what is this?" There was a chunk of potato in my rice.

I figured it fell in by mistake. No big deal. Then after a bite I realize, "hold on, there's all kinds of potato chunks in this. . . and what's that? PINEAPPLE!?" Probably 8-10 small "chunks" of each. Way too many to be accidental.

At the time, I just decided it was the oddest recipe ever but its stuck with me all afternoon. Its really the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Who puts potato and pineapple in Mexican-style rice? Why would a Mexican restaurant even have pineapple in their kitchen to begin with? Are they buying it just for the rice? Is their pineapple added to all sorts of recipes? I almost want to go back tomorrow and order random things to see what other odd additions they make to standard tex-mex fare.

I have heard of it but never ordered it as a vegetarian. A quick googling at least answers my question as to why they have pineapple to begin with, so thank you for that.

I still don't know what sorcery brought about the idea of potato and pineapple Mexican rice, however.
