Outraged

Today I met my wife for lunch. She told me that there was a new gym just opened near our house and she wanted to go and have a look. So, we went.
The gym was nice and new, though perhaps wasn't quite ready for opening. Some key features, like doors on the changing rooms, were missing. Whilst we were getting our tour we were offered a free body composition report. Never one to turn down something free - I immediately accepted. Mistake.
Below is a photo of the output. Pay special attention to section 4 entitled 'Obesity diagnosis', look for the tick.




Yes, that's right. I'm fat. 70.3 kg (fully clothed) for a 173cm tall person is fat.
On querying the output the staff got defensive (and giggly) they insisted it was a new machine and the outputs are correct.
I can only assume, and hope, that the machine is calibrated to 'Skinny Asian' and not 'Big Fat Foreigner' settings.
