No, I was. You're being completely intellectually disingenuous (again) on this point about BMI. Jesus, do I have to spell it out for you? Here's the point:
Person 1 weighs 60kg, is 170cm, and has a body fat percentage of 40%. Person 2 weighs 70kg, is 169cm, and has a body fat percentage of 10%.
Thus, in absolute terms, Person 1 has 24kg of fat. Person 2 has 7kg of fat. In relative terms, it's 40% versus 10%. By either measure, Person 1 is clearly "fatter". Yet by BMI, Person 2 is the worse one. That's why BMI is not taken that seriously without reference to other things.
There's the point.
Again you're really not talking about anything.
