    Not sure tbh...but there is that old saying about people being "big boned". The guy I work with is kinda stocky looking... but you wouldn't look at him and think he's fat at all.

    Maori vs aboriginal vs south African Tribal vs Inuit Eskimo vs Japanese vs pacific islander vs South American Pigmy. Huge difference. Brow ridges, bone density, femur legnth and hip width can all be used archaeologically for differentiation

    They use these techniques every day to differentiate an aboriginal burial ground site for example

    I'm just going to flat out admit I understand about 25% of what you write so I'll not reply to this.

    What the heck has bone density got to do with the distribution of body fat. Regardless of ethnic background, if you're a 6 you're obese, not question about it.

    Default Spin off : what does obese look like?

    Exactly this. Maxwell's Silver Hammer you're talking about BMI which hasn't been mentioned in the OP. The image shows distinct body types based on how much FAT is on the body. Clearly. If you look at the pictures you can see different levels of fat, not muscle or bone density or any other physical attribute. Your argument is irrelevant to this discussion.
