Height/Weight Matrix: Real People, Real Weights

We all spend a lot of our time looking at the bodies of celebs when they are made up, dressed up or airbrushed. Which is all fine and good, but I think it is important to see what "real" people look like. You know the ones of us who don't have personal trainers making sure we workout and personal chefs creating perfect 200 calorie snacks for us to eat

Over at they are creating a height / weight matrix of "real" people. It is a great way to see that people really do come in all shapes and sizes. It is cool idea and I hope you all decide to participate - all you need to do is send a photo and your stats. You should at least go take a look, it is really refreshing to see the variation on the human form.

Interesting idea but my "double" is a man! how can I compare myself to someone who is not actually built like me?

I like the idea but the people are all wearing baggy clothes, that doesn't help to show you.

Huh, I'm questioning some of the photos. Not necessarily the people in them but the choice of photo. Like, why brandish an ax? But okay, I'm sure that's besides the point...

I accessed the matrix via the link and then I searched the home page for the height / weight matrix - btw it's down towards the very bottom.

I just tried it also and it didnt work for me either. I think i'll try back later. The idea sounds great

Is it just me, or is the link to the height / weight matrix not working?? :/ Anyway, I checked it out on the site and I love this idea. It's really interesting to see. :)
