Yeah subby, brazil is rising quickly for fattest nation and BMI is still a horrible metric for obesity in the USA, Im at a 34 BMI and the step kid is at a 33 but I only have 19% body fat and hes at 15%.

I love running circles around them all game; however, this also ends up with an inevitable crushing body blow when they hack you down at least once a game.
