Guess my weight!

Ok, quiz time. With all of the talk about weight on this blog and here and here it got me thinking about how deceptive weight can be. With other blogs with names like Fat Cyclist and Fat Marc, you would think that their authors would be quite portly but quite the contrary. Fat Marc in particular looks to be very fit to me and the Fat Cyclist may not be super trim but he certainly does lots of very epic rides and seems to fare well for the most part so one would assume, at least by societal standards, that he is in reasonably good shape. Most people are very suprised when they find out what I weigh (I won't tell you if they're suprised at how light or how heavy I am, thats your job). So, the question is, based on the picture above, how much would you guess that I weigh? For reference I'm 6'-2 1/2". The person who guesses closest (without making me feel too bad) gets a special prize. Sorry, family members are not allowed to participate.Posted by Picasa

Look at you shootin' "blue steel".. I was going to go with 165, but you've made mention of your large cranium in the past, so I'm guessing that adds a few el-bees so I'll go 6-2.5/169.5.

Then again, you male model types go for the "waif look" so I say 158.

NICE comeback.

I know family members don't count, but since there hasn't exactly been an overwhelming number of entries, I'll say 185. Jason forgot to factor in the nose.
