Weight

The morning news informed me that, according to the BMI index, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are slightly overweight.

This was in the context of offering an even more one-size-fits-all measure of weight: all men with waists of over 40 inches and all women with waists of over 35 inches are overweight. They're right that there's a problem with the system - but I wouldn't say this is an overly constructive replacement.
