I got it...Then again, I`m used to the metric system and not the imperial system like many of my fellow Americans. >.> If you look really closely, you can even see "kg" in really tiny white letters.

Since she`s sitting down, she`d weight a lot more than 68... XD Well, there is the bag. Heh.

Umm... BMI? No, 68% would make her super fat. What weight system is this?

This is either really really right or really really wrong... not sure just yet...
Of course, not accurate `cause you`re sitting... but interesting idea anyhow.

@ OP,

Yeah, America should adopt it, but from the looks of it, it only has three number slots. We`d probably have to bump that up to at least four here, in America, if more than one person sits on it. Heck, maybe even if only one person sits on it.

BUT, however, that`s her weight PLUS the weight of her clothes and her huge purse. So she`s maybe 10-15 lbs less.

"and really there aren`t that many fat people in america, its annoying how people say that, granted yes our rates are higher for overweight peopple, but a body mass index (what tells you if your fat or not) isnt that accurate IE a muscular football player type of person who weighs 300 pounds of pure muscle would probably be considered obese on the BMI scale but actually be very healthy, in fact i see more of those kind of cases where i live than just fat people. (alot of sports addicts in my town)"

did you just say there arent that many fat people in America?? where do you get your facts.

130 million people are overweight.. and all those football players. Just because they play football doesnt mean that they are not fat. look at Warren Sapp, or BIg Baby from the celtics or just look at any baseball player (lol) there are many countless examples, that 1000 characters wont let me go into, and all those players, after their career are over, develop multiple kinds of joint p

If they had one of these in the U.S., they`d have to use a scale from a truck weigh station. A bus stop could have 10 300 pounders a day on it.

"Just look at smokers, for an established example, they know it is bad for them and people let them know it, and yet they continue. "
I think the nicotine gum/patch etc. industry says otherwise.

As for Americans=fat, our life expectancy recently went DOWN for the first time in history, and is commonly linked to our rising obesity rates. I don`t have a problem if people want to live that way, I just hate it when they get all offended and deny being fat. The facts say we are definitely a relatively fat country.

GothicQueen, that`s healthy, not weird. There`s a healthy level of fat to be had, especially on women. I like a woman with something to grab onto and who`s clothes look like they fit, and aren`t falling off. It`s good.

And no crap, Canuck. One kilo of anything ways the same as one kilo of anything else. Two people of the same size, one made of fat, one made of muscle.. the muscular person weighs more. It`s more dense. Way to take it out of context. "Muscle weighs more."

I live in California, which is supposed to be pretty low compared to other states in terms of obesity- But there are still so many obese people... Whatever- People can do what they want; If they like cardiovascular disease and getting a full work out every time they go to get a soda pop out of the fridge, they can go on living the way they want.

On the America being fat topic, I`m an 18 year old guy in America and weigh 150 pounds. While in a Wal Mart I counted the people I saw who looked like they would weigh 3 times what i do, I stopped counting after i hit 30 in 10 minutes. America is fat, deal with it.

America is NOT full of fat people. Sure, some places, statistically, might have a higher overweight population than others, but we`re not all obese, my god. The town i live in is full of, generally, healthy weighted people.

Gothicqueen, most guys (speaking for myselfs and ALMOST every dude i know) prefer girls that have SOMETHING there, a flat tummy might seem atractive, but its not as sexy as that extra.

muscle doesnt weight more then fat, one kilo of fat is equal to one kilo of muscle. what you mean is muscle is denser then fat

I am aware of thin Americans - most celebrities, sports people, and I`m sure most of you guys, etc. It`s merely a joke. I apologise if everyone decided I was serious.

[Anyone talking about lb-kg, don`t you think they`d convert it to lbs if they used it in America?]

It`s 2.2 pounds to the kg. I don`t know why us Americans have to be stubborn about it.

And yes, 217 pounds is pretty heavy. Especially if a large portion of that is fat. Muscle weighs more than fat.

"They couldn`t use this in America. The screen only has two numbers."

yes, because we here in America go by pounds, not kilograms, and if you know anything about converting you`d know that there is about 2 pounds per kilogram. so tell me, how many full grown adults do you know that weigh under 50 kg?

@videogamer: it is measuring kilograms. Kilograms are technically mass, not weight (although yes it works on weight so you aren`t wrong).
