I'm pretty sure I've been to that elephant preserve. There was an adorable baby elephant there at that time, too. My wife and I got put in charge of it for the day. It was fantastic. I bet the little guy is all grown up now. :cry:

I'm not saying that a van can't be a time machine but, can that thing even reach 88 mph?

Bigelow Aerospace's inflatable space habitat to be on next supplies launch (on April 8th) to ISS:

.

The above is an artist's recreation of how it might look when attached and inflated.

No astronaut will be using it. It is being tested to see how such structures might fare in a real space, in-orbit environment. The 2-year-long test will be monitored by devices within the habitat, and if it survives this test then it will be detached and inserted into a lower orbit where it will get destroyed by re-entry.

It isn't very large:

Ok, now this is something I would like to go see some time.
Chart showing how the percentage of each country's men that qualify as obese changes with time.

I was appalled until I saw this:

The estimates are based on a person’s body-mass index.


BMI is such a load of human waste, as Geesie has noted before.
For individuals, certainly. Averaged across the entire population its not a bad measure. The upward trend is troubling regardless.

Yeah, I don't think America actually got more athletic over that time frame.

I should also clarify my views on BMI.
It's blatherskite the way some insurance companies or others use it as a diagnostic tool. It's a starting point. If you've got a BMI in the "overweight" category it's a reason to examine your overall health or for a doctor to ask questions.
On the other hand, if your BMI is in the "obese" categories, you almost certainly have issues that will affect your health. Remember - Arnold's competition weight put him at 30.2 BMI, barely into "obese." And he sure wasn't natural.

I'm in the best shape of my life right now. Up until three years ago, I never ran more than the mile they make you run in PE class and hadn't done that for over 20 years. I now run 800 miles a year. I just got my first "overweight" BMI result ever last week.

BMI is blatherskite.

At his peak, Arnold was 30.2..... overweight according to BMI
Right, and how extreme muscle mass needs to get to cause BMI to be significantly wrong. In other words, its not perfect but not all that inaccurate for most people.

It really depends. I would have to either emaciate myself or start removing limbs to get below a BMI of 25.
