It’s shouldn’t come as news to anyone that the rest of the world sees us as, among other things, being a tad overweight.

Lol, cool photo but I bet they think we don't have holes in our socks either.

Stats state that the rest of the world would be right.

Great BW. May I ask why the holes in the socks? Or just what was on the persons feet at the time?

Cool subject...I like...btw, I dunno if it's just me, but I have to ask...was the person (BF perhaps?) holding something to make it weigh 312lbs? The reason I ask is those legs and feet do not look morbidly obese enough to be +300 pounds....unless the person is waaaaaayyyyyyy over 6 feet tall.
I guess they could also have skinny legs as well.....hmmmmmm..... :rolleyes:

Looks like a big person ... those feet barely fit on the scales! And the hair looks like you'd need a 'whipper snipper' (I think it's called a weed whacker in the US??) to keep them under control :)

Cool photo ... something I'd have never thought of.

Shame socks cost so much in the US though.

Yeah, they actually are my feet and I had to ruin a perfectly good pair of socks to get the holes. I thought they might help the shot.
Now, I don’t have to run around in the shower to get wet mind you, but I’m nowhere near 300lbs either. I just re-calibrated the scales in an upward manner to illustrate the point. Six feet, two-twenty I am.

You know what they say about a man with big feet, MA…....he wears big shoes. :headslap:

You are about the same weight/height ratio as me then ... I'm about 5' 10" and 98 kgs ... I need to lose about 20 kgs I reckon.

Yah! I like that. My weigh scale is pretty unpredictable, but I don't even think it goes up to 320. Yours must be a newer model. LOL
