    And, for the record, I'm 6-4, 195

    OK. I was about to give you shit for the 195, but 6-4 makes it legit. I am only 5-10. But according to IJAG and Jones, my wingspan is 12-4, if you include my fully-extended fingers.

    Well, I was 165 when I got married 15 years ago (wow, I'm getting old) and my job during college was at a treadmill manufacturing company. I worked in quality control and my job, quite literally, was to pull finished treadmills (or stair climbers, or stationary bikes) off the line and test them for 20-30 minutes. Do that for eigh hours a night and I defy you to gain weight.

    Of course, we were too poor at the time to eat much. So combine a bare pantry with a lot of running and I looked Ethiopian at times.

    I hear ya, Idaho. For 2 1/2 years, including the year after I graduated from the alma mater, part of my job involved parking cars. For the year after I got out of school - and couldn't find a professional job of any significance - I'd usually work 60-70 hours a week (I've been told I walk pretty fast, so giving me OT was probably better than training 3-4 people a week who'd quit because they didn't want to do anything).

    I had a friend who was worried I was wasting away. No chance, but I got her point. And yours, Idaho.

    So, JW, I guess the moral is that if you want to loose the lbs, quit your job, go back to college and get a new job running on treadmills while you also cover the women's golf team for the college paper.

    You'll be down to 240 in a hurry.

    A round man can only police the outside corners.
