Cheerful news for those whose Body Mass Index (BMI) falls into the "overweight" range today - you will probably live longer than a person whose BMI is "ideal". Boffins in Canada and America revealed the new findings following a study of over 11,000 Canadians covering the last 12 years. Unsurprisingly, people whose BMI showed …
That isn't why BMI doesn't make sense
If I eat an unhealthy amount of lard pies I'll get wider, and, erm, longer, but no taller, so I'll be expanding in 2 dimensions, not 3, and the square makes sense.
Mass is related to volume which is related to width cubed, but fattiness is related to lardiness which is closer to width squared for a given individual.
BMI doesn't make sense because it doesn't take account of fat vs muscle, or that people of different heights have different proprotions, or the fact that people are different, and what is healthy for one person isn't necessarily healthy for another.
Coren Giles? One should actually feel sorry for him
Being a Kraut myself, I am very much aware what happened in WW II. As a matter of fact my grandfather was a Nazi..... BUT.... only until he realised what happened behind the scenes.
During the actual Holocaust (Reichskristallnacht) he actually helped save many Jews from the SS and the GeStaPo.
I also have polish relatives and one can only marvel, how a renowned publication like The Times can actually have this little uneducated (at least when it comes to WW II and obviously many other things) write as much nonsense as he does.
But specially his completely unqualified and uneducated comment about "Chocky Tax" just shows, what sort of inferiority complex he must have. I suspect, that he actually comes from a sad childhood.
He was always rebellious (and is even proud of it...).
This in itself already shows, that he is nothing but a failure. maybe not in society, but in terms of being an example.
Many of our youth are undisciplined, rebellious (way over board), have a lack of standards (especially moral ones), no self-respect, and just have twisted minds.
It is not really surprising with examples like him!!!
I know I am going to get flamed for some of the comments, but this is what I genuinely believe!
Does that mean we have to suffer Fatty Ballmer longer than is necessary ?

Pity a lot more of you krauts weren't more rebellious when it counted, maybe then we wouldnt have all the "useful" data you obviously like to quote from the death camps.
