Most residents of the Mushroom Kingdom agree, Mario should be held in little Marquis de Sade style cell and only trotted out twice a day at noon and six o clock to be brutally tortured. They only harm him superficially so his body is never destroyed. The Mushroom Kingdom is suffused with this lust for a pain, an entire empire of madness inflicting its animus for agony towards Mario. I would say I feel sorry for him, but hell is not bad enough for him.

Well, most people have a waist somewhere in the 30s, but those guys on my 600 pound life with the 110" waists skew the average to the upside.

Ok, Iím looking at these numbers from the CDC and something isnít adding up

Averages for dude in the US of A:
-Height in inches: 69.0
-Weight in pounds: 199.8
-Waist circumference in inches: 40.5

Iím 74Ē tall. The heaviest Iíve ever been, during the saddest and fattest period in my life, was 220lbs. I did not feel healthy. I didnít look great. Got over the depression eventually. Went overboard getting fit again and kept a lot of measurements to track my progress and the worst that tape hit was ~35Ē. Does a 5Ē height difference equal a 5Ē waist difference?

Whatís going on here? Do I have an extra heavy skeleton or am I just bad at math?

I think this is one of those situations where the median would be more useful or extreme results skew the average more in inches than pounds maybe? Not sure if that would work.

No one has a really heavy skeleton.

Is that measured with a tape or your pants size? Pants size tends to be inaccurate.


Not that it matters. At all. Unless youíre fatshamer like Mario I guess.

Edit: I guess that might actually count for the context of this thread. A guy with a 40Ē waist is probably wearing size 36 to 38 jeans. Thatís husky for sure but not really a size youíd associate with the mechanical limits of things in America :911:. Thatís only two thirds of a Chris Christie! This a terribly designed ride.

Well yeah the kart will slow down, it just takes longer to get to top speed however the weight will send light racers like Toad flying off the track, thatís the trade-off. I mean thatís how it worked in Mario Kart if you picked Wario, Bowser, or DK.

PS these have been requirements on multiple Universal rides for years, lol mining Twitter for ďnews.Ē Iím more interested to know why a 40Ē waist is the average in terms of ride construction and how it relates to cost because we know it comes down to money somewhere along the line.
