Why do you stand on your toes on the scale? Seems pointless unless you want to fool yourself into believing you weigh less. A simple and less dangerous method is to turn the dial back so that it underweighs when flatfooted. Does anyone on this site have a life?????

a mechanical type scale only gives true weight when that weight is centered on the scale - shifting weight towards one of the edges gives false readings.

You may call it a pair of scales in the U.K., but in the U.S. we've gotten past that. We step on the scale. THIS is why it is called a pair of scales. It's all in how they used to work. (Now you can use that old set of scales as the bra you don't wear. . .)

However, I should stop trying to be a wiseass and get serious for a few secs. I too have noticed that when I weigh myself I am heavier than when I don't weigh myself, or after I eat Chinese food. Ya know how people always say, "Hey, I ate twelve pounds of Chinese food at the buffet and three hours later I was hungry?" Well, if you eat fourteen pounds or more, you actually drop in weight. It's a fact.

For instance, just last Friday while I was wearing the bra (it was a very strange party and I won't go into details here), I weighed myself. The scale, or balance beam if that's what ya wanna call it, showed my weight with the bra to be 168 pounds. When I took the bra off, I weighed 170 pounds. On tiptoes with the bra (no, I was on tiptoes--the bra HAS no toes although it does have tips) I was a mere 98 pounds. NOW, here's the strange part. When I weighed the bra all by itself, it was 197 pounds, and it (or they, if yer gonna get all pedantic about it) tried to eat the toilet bowl! I am never wearing THAT bra again. Anyway, the Chinese food I ate weighed 17 pounds. I was 170 pounds without any clothes on in the restaurant, not even the bra, and after I ate I weighed--are you ready for this?-- 63 pounds.

If I had been on the moon, I would have weighed in at less than eleven pounds. If an eleven-pound guy ate his weight in Chinese food, he'd just plain disappear, and all that would be left is a bra with a toilet bowl in its mouth. This almost happened to me, folks. Take a word of advice: unless you're fish, stay away from scales.

i want to weigh in on this discussion, and give my three ounces worth. it is a myth that Chinese food makes you fat, it is not Chinese food but the oil they cook it in that makes you fat, bruce, and so there is no need to tiptoe through the chewlips after eating Chinese food, or any other heavy item. i accept that if you were on the moon, or was that over the moon, you would weigh less, but only with the bra off.

Is it because, when you're fully naked you don't have your specs on and therefore can't read the scales properly - or is it that bits of you tend to get in the way of the dial ? Never mind - help is at hand, I'll be quite happy to read the scales for you while you're standing on them naked.

Of course it could be something to do with all those helium balloons in your pockets . . . . . .

How can you have pockets when you're naked? I suppose it could be depressions left by the liposuction. Teach you not to DIY with the hoover!

I would have thought that keeping the bra on would be better as it would be a suspended weight rather than a dead one.

How to Lie to the Bathroom Scale

* Weigh yourself with clothes on, after dinner...as well as in the morning, without clothes, before breakfast, because it's nice to see how much weight you've lost overnight.

* Never weigh yourself with wet hair.

* When weighing, remove everything, including glasses. In this case, blurred vision is an asset. Don't forget the earrings, these things can weigh at least a pound.

* Use cheap scales only, never the medical kind, because they are always five pounds off...to your advantage, of course.

* Always go to the bathroom first.

* Stand with arms raised, making pressure on the scale lighter. (Waving them is optional but occasionally helps!)

* Don't eat or drink in the morning until AFTER you've weighed in, completely naked, of course.

* Weigh yourself after a haircut, this is good for at least half a pound of hair (hopefully).

* Exhale with all your might BEFORE stepping onto the scale (air has to weigh something, right?)

* Start out with just one foot on the scale, then holding onto the towel rack in front of you, slowly edge your other foot on and slowly let off of the rack. Admittedly, this takes time, but it's worth it. You will weigh at least two pounds less than if you'd stepped on normally.

.....

A husband stepped on one of those penny scales that tell you your fortune and weight and dropped in a coin. "Listen to this," he said to his wife, showing her a small, white card. "It says I'm energetic, bright, resourceful and a great lover."

"Yeah," his wife nodded, "and it has your weight wrong, too."

Are your scales on a hard floor! if you have them on carpet they will not read correct, usually under. Go way of boosting your ego, use the scales on a nice pile carpet.

Are your scales corrected for local gravity? Gravity varies in different places, even within the same country. Call up the weights and measures people tell them you need a local gravity figure to correct the scales whilst you stand on tiptoes with no clothes. I am sure they will be helpfull.

The reading is very accurate, and afterwards you can go out for Chinese Food with your Psychiatrist , and he/she/they will pay.

Try scales with kilos rather than stones. It'll give you a smaller number and I like the plush carpet idea especially in the bathroom although then I'd be wanting to stand on the carpet rather than cold metal scales. In fact I'd probably pick up the scales and throw them out the window.

Rafiq described the interrogation room. It had several thick metal hooks and wires hanging from the ceiling, and tables with batteries, electrical prods, metal clamps and other devices. The walls were splattered with streaks of blood, and there were stains of fresh blood beneath the hooks. This room was where he and the other inmates were regularly subjected to a range of excruciating, relentless, disgusting and debilitating tortures. At the end of each session he was hung from the ceiling and beaten and punched. The soles of his feet were whipped with a cane until they bled. When taken back to his cell, they would become infected from the filth on the cell's disgusting floor. Rafiq learnt to lick his feet, to keep them from becoming gangrenous.

To the ladies,

Whereas I feel I have no right in deciding whether a lady should wear a bra or not, I feel it my duty to suggest that while cooking over an open flame a lady should wear one.

Otherwise she might find herself discomboobulated!

I used to do the toe trick to the yeoman chief all the time. shifting your weight forward onto your toes can be accomplished without lifting your heel. This will usually cause a loss of ten to fifteen pounds. They think they've got you overweight and are so disappointed when you end up fifteen pounds under.

What's all of this standing on toes, anyway? I just lean on the edge of the sink with one hand--it's easy to weigh in much lighter. :) The trick is to stand still enough that the readout doesn't vary wildly as you balance like that.
