New BMI calculation

Post by catweasel » Tue Jan 29, 2013 9:31 am

The fat according to Catweasel.

180 years ago, in a land far far away, well, Belgium, a git named Adolphe Quetelet decided to make persons fat with his BMI..but lo! and the sun did rise some 47,000 times and then did Nick Trefethen (Professor of Numerical Analysis at Oxford University) say unto ye "That's a load of bollocks that is"....." forget dividing weight by height..1.3 weight divided by the height to the power of 2.5 is far better"

and lo did I try and was found to be less fatter. Happy was I and so I came...to share the glad tidings.


Ich schaue stattlich, ich schaue intelligent, ich bin ein gehendes Kunstwerk!
