    I think you're living in a bubble. Try having people deliberately cross the street just so they can walk up to you and tell you how much your smoke bothers them, then cross back over & walk down the street. Well, it probably wouldn't have bothered them if they hadn't crossed the street. I made an effort to get away from people when I smoked to avoid bothering people with it. Total strangers thought nothing of chasing me down in my corner of the open space just to yell at me.

    I will grant you, there are smokers that get very in-your-face with their smoke, but I wasn't one of them.

    Yeah, if you're 6'0" tall, you'd have to be 400# to hit a 55 BMI. It's really more of an indictment on smokers -- the fact that researchers are comparing their health to Fat Bastard.

    I haven't weighed that since I was 14. Training for sports in the weight room put on enough muscle where I'll only have an acceptable BMI by amputation or horrible disease
    I could have 0% body fat and I would still ring up as obese. BMI is a terrible measure because it works in idealism instead of real world numbers.

    I'm definitely overweight, but I don't think it's possible for me to lose more than 30 lbs.

    I think the intention was that it should also be considered rude to call out people for smoking when it isn't bothering anyone but the smoker.

    That's what I meant but I reread and it's ambiguous.
