Want to lose weight?
 
I bought a digital scale and was surprised to learn that I lose ~2 lbs overnight, through transpiration, respiration & micturation.

Usually I starve myself but then binge eat once/week so I now have a new strategy: trying to keep the slope of this line (as calculated by Excel) at about -0.3 lbs/day.

Notes:
Wt with a half pound of underwear on so as not to get any women who may be present unduly excited.
Evening measurement except as noted

date| # of days| wt| Notes
17 0 170.6
18 1 170.2
19 2 170.4
20| 3| 169.2| morn
21 4
22 5

-0.40 =calc'd slope in lbs/day

So you are telling me I just need to sleep more. I think I’ll try your diet out.

That's one conclusion.

Speaking of logical (or not) conclusions, here's a word puzzle for you, Mr. 16415:
In country A, hospitals kill 90,000 per year and guns kill 60,000 per year. Are hospitals more dangerous than guns in this country?

guns and hospitals don't kill people per say

Well then, does a stripper pole make girls take their cloths off then?

I certainly hope so!
