A sexist experiment

For whatever reason chicks don't seem to like to fess up to how much they weigh, so I thought it would be fun to do a thread where we see how many males compared to females will admit to what they tip the scale at.

I now weigh 180 pounds. How about you?

Edit: I'm 5 feet 11.5" tall if anybody wondered.

I'm guessing that this sexist experiment will also have (intentionally) sexist results.

If you're actually serious, then I think you'd need to know the percent of female and male readers of this thread vs. the percentage of female and male respondents to this thread in order for the results to be of any significance. I agree that "chicks don't seem to like to fess up to how much they weigh", but you know that there'll be more guys responding w/ actual weights and it can then be argued that this is because there are more guys in this forum.

Sidenote --- since we can't SEE each other, I'm going to argue that it's much easier for women to be less self conscious and/ or fudge their numbers, so let's add 25% to all of the female responses .

But, oh heck, it's just a poll in "Foo", so wtf am I rambling on about? I weigh 180 (male...obviously : ) ) .

All right, since everyone else is telling... 57 kilos or 126 pounds. Only slightly more than Christian Bale in The Machinist. Except I don't look scary.

I fluctuate between 225-235, although I have been closer to 225 for a while. I'm a chubby guy.
