She is an awesome puddy tat. There's very little that she doesn't dance in time to. Give it too much thought and it's kind of disturbing.

They're statistics, they mean nothing. Until someone actually asks under oath/measures/views/inspects every single person in the world, any stats are irrelevant. I don't care about the cross section, the age criteria etc, it's all bullshit.

In my highly educated, qualified opinion of course.

One thing that really is bullshit is the supposed childhood obesity epidemic. Where are these kids? I have a 9 year old son and am around children all the time and see very few fat ones. Sure, every class at school will have a fat or chubby kid, but that has always been the case and is no different today.

It's just more nanny state mumbo jumbo, and another excuse for the government/PC wanker brigade to interfere in our lives.

Degree of truth actually. You have to look to the [much] older kids then you might start to see it - in certain demographics, certainly.

Demographics my boy. It's also relative.

If you look at war-torn Africa, parts of Asia and Latin America, and general strandards of health care, then Australia would be up high on the list. It's also true to say that some modern countries with certain Western diets have an embedded issue of obesity which can only get worse.

Go to the smartest suburbs of London, New York and Sydney and you will see, on the face of it, the 'healthiest' people.

a muscleman will have a much higher BMI than a scrawny man.

BMI is a pointless, illogical and incorrect measuring tool.
