    Well I could explain it but the answer is very complicated and touches on subjects that would give Culinaly jannies a heart attack so you'll have to just use your imagination. If you think about it for a little while and consider the state of the world and the internet after 2010 you'll probably be able to connect the dots yourself.

    I'm an engineer and have been working steadily for the past 14 years and have a BMI of 20.1 at 140 lbs / 5'10. What else you got, friend?

        Actually not even close to underweight BMI. But the obesity epidemic skewed how people see things so that overweight looks normal now.

          That's right in the middle of normal BMI range.

          Most people are just fat.

          BMI is a horrible metric for its purpose and is only used due to laziness.
          Body Fat Percentage is a completely different metric.

        ...Anon, height and weight are literally the only factors in calculating BMI. It literally cannot be higher or lower at that height and weight.

          I think he's saying his imagination for what a normal weight is at 5'10 was more like 180 lbs or something and he's surprised to learn that'd be overweight and actual normal BMI weight at 5'10 (e.g. 140 lbs) is what he thought was underweight.

            Ah, that would make sense. Especially if he doesn't understand how BMI is calculated and has been lead to ignorantly believe it's a good indicator of whether or not someone is obese, overweight, or underweight.

              BMI only really has problems if you're dealing with a bodybuillder who weighs the same as an obese man except it's weight in muscle instead of fat.
              Most people aren't bodybuilders and BMI is accurate for them. Someone weighing 140 lbs at 5'10 is obviously not a bodybuilder. There aren't many different forms a body can have with that height and weight.

    I could have sworn I remember Baja Blast being around in the late 90s, but my parents rarely took us to fast food joints at all, let alone Taco Bell so it might just be a hazy memory.

    I remember being a kid when the KFC Snackers launched. They were only $1 and they had buffalo, cheddar, shredded BBQ and original I believe. I wore those frickers out, especially the buffalo. Plus they were actually a decent size back then. Nowadays that have the chicken little and it is absolute dog shit.

      I'm slightly older than moot. Anyone significantly older or younger than moot is co-opting Culinaly which is an anime website built by and for mid to late 1980s born millennials.

      Fast food is as innovative as it gets. Cooking was in the stone age before McDonald's emerged. Fast food was literally the Industrial Revolution applied to food.
