What Do You Weigh?

Today at the lovely Grand View Hotel in Shenzhen, China I noticed the standard weight limit sign in an elevator that said the following —

13 Person Max.
1,000 Kgs.

Let’s step back and take a closer look at these numbers –

– 1,000 kgs. equals 2,204lbs
– Divide the total weight (2,204lbs) by the maximum number of people allowed (13) and you get 168lbs per person.

My question is this – if you took 13 average Americans do you think they would average 168lbs? Just a question.
