Re: the “adult weight” of 87kg

At 1.78m and 68kg I think you're slimmer than average if you're male. You're the same height as me though ... anecdote:

My Doctor: "You are 15 Stone. Do you know your BMI?"

Me: "Of course, it's exactly twice my weight in Stone, 30"

Dr: "That's not how you calculate it"

Me: "It is if you are 5 foot 10"

Dr: *fiddles with calculator, then laughs* "do you spend a lot of time sitting around thinking about maths?"

Me: "Why do you think I'm so fat?"
