Calculate your pounds per vertical foot and then share that information with your friends and family.
Footville, Wisconsin – Experts have come up with a new and easy way to determine one’s general overall health.
Pounds per vertical foot is the new way to measure and judge how near or far a person is from the ideal bodily proportions.
To calculate it, simply take your total weight in pounds and divide that by how many feet tall you are.
For example, for a person weighing 200 pounds and standing 5 feet 10 inches tall, you would divide 200 by 5.83 = 34.3 pounds per vertical foot.
It turns out that 34.3 is just about ideal when it comes to pounds per vertical foot.
Ironically, as I write this, that happens to be exactly my pounds per vertical foot, which makes me feel like I am on track toward being on board the train of healthy living.
What is your pounds per vertical foot? Ask others what theirs is. Share yours with others in the break room. Post yours proudly in your cubicle at work. Help others calculate theirs after gathering their height and weight. It is fun and easy, and the new healthy thing to do!
West Fargo, ND – Concerned West Fargo citizens held a town hall meeting last week that created enough concern, the West Fargo Police Department will implement a new bike lane law EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.
Tim (The Toxic Ninja) Thompson, the neighborhood superhero, was riding his mountain bike early last week when he spotted an overweight child or “fat kid” riding a small motorized scooter on the bike path. See picture below.
No Longer Allowed
What he just witnessed made Tim (The Toxic Ninja) Thompson immediately reminisce about his childhood days where he actually had to physically push his scooter with his legs and feet such as the one below. This involved an almost full body workout which, back in the day, believe it or not, was considered good for you.
A Real Scooter
Angry and concerned, Tim had to fulfill his superhero duties and call in a town hall meeting. Here, the citizens heard Tim’s plea and all agreed. No longer are fatkids allowed to ride motorized scooters on all West Fargo City bike paths effective immediately.
The police department would like to advise parents to have their overweight children use any transportation that actually involves physically moving your body to move it. Like the scooter pictured above. It also includes the overweight children themselves. Meaning, have them walk. No longer should you wheelbarrow them around, roll them from point a to b, or have them ride motorized scooters.
