The photo makes me think you're either 4'11" or 5'7" or 6'3" and only one of those three options, nothing in-between.

Height is a quantum function. Yes, those are the only valid answers. I exist in all three states, depending on my excitation.

He's a Canuck.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

I’m Canadian, but these jeans are from an American store (likely made in Bangladesh).  :)

This is my “work from home” attire, I usually wear tailored suits to the office.

Then the three letters in your name are your three quantum states?

My mind is blown. JNM won waygook.org today.

From a girls perspective:  You are a handsome man but you need to pull those quantum leap American jeans up and wear a belt so they stay put and don't look like hip huggers on your skinny waist! Then put on a crisp white tank top underneath a dark coloured "team shirt" of your choice..and don't wear those cast iron crocs on film! hehe

Thanks. I usually do wear a belt. This was a “pull something on quick, the dog needs out now!”

Dog is not a euphemism....or is it?

So... my 34 BMI, non-Mr.-Olympia self may not have much fashion sense, but no comments so far calling me a fatso.

Where are all the BMI zealots?

Are you an even 100kg (exactly) or is that an estimate?

The stats mean you are 5 foot 6, 220 pounds?

Maybe the mirror has a sliming effect due to the construction and/or angle?

100 +\- 0.5 kg over the past few months of measurements.

Photo is straight on a flat mirror. No camera tricks.

33% fat

Above 25% body fat in males is obese; you are firmly in the obese category. So the BMI is accurate. And BMI usually is an accurate measure. (Almost always, despite the rare exceptions of roided up bodybuilders overweight people like to tout.)

But why do you look thin in the picture?

The camera makes images slimmer due to the lens being slightly bent or something?

Most people underestimate my weight in person too.

I do have a bit of a dad-bod paunch that doesn’t show much on the photo.

I don’t think that fat number is very accurate. It’s from an InBody home unit I got at Costco. (Edit: has I suspect it is biased high, but it is quite variable week to week.)

I bulk up quick when I get more active, so my weight never changes much. (Summer of 2018 notwithstanding - I porked up!)

I have a long torso relative to my legs, so that skews things as well.

In short, I could lose a few kilos of fat, but even “18 year old active me” would never have got to “ideal” BMI of ~160 lbs.

BMI does work to an extent, but it's widely used for logistical convenience (easy to get BMIs of 1000 guys in a day). Best way to judge is to look in the mirror and compare your bodyfat % to pics online (Athlean X one is pretty accurate). Over time, your ability to judge by looking will improve.

BMI was devised in the 1830s by Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet (1796-1874), a Belgian mathematician, sociologist, statistician and astronomer.

It was never meant to used medically like it is today.
