As I think I mentioned some time ago, I was once asked for my weight on a

Interesting that it was legal to ask that.
I fidn this obsession with body mass/weight to be curious. a lot of
health-related matters seem to be based on the idea that a correlation
implies causality (it does not, of coruse).
At the risk of going too far off topic, the actual idea is that correlation implies an
opportunity for control (or coercion). The other is merely an excuse.
