Sam putting the Samulet on Dean and watching his eyes turn green again.
I’m reblogging this great post from acolumbineblog and adding to it:
In general, people think of Dylan as just the tall, skinny guy - period. Just one of those teen boys that eats a ton of food but never gains because of a super high metabolism. However, if you look closely there is more to it than meets the eye. I’ve included a sort of “Before” and “After” photo set of Dylan. Showing his physique a year prior and then also the months leading up to 4/20 when he rapidly drops weight likely due to his depression. The year or so before, his hair is shorter, and you can see his arms are more filled out; his pants fit the line of his legs. In the spring of 1999, when his hair has grown the longest it’s ever been in the Radioactive Clothing vid, it is pretty noticable that Dylan has lost a fair amount of weight - a whopping 37 lbs - to be exact. His arms resemble thin, bony sticks and his pants are just hanging on him - literally swimming in his jeans. I wonder whether his parents had noticed the abrupt changes in weight since they did mention that he ”seemed more sad” weeks before the attack. :(
Dylan had lost 37lbs leading up to the Columbine massacre
The BMI put out by the Mayo Clinic and the NHI state:
- Underweight = <18.5
- Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
- Overweight = 25–29.9
- Obesity = 30 or greater
This suggests that Dylan, who’s BMI would have been about 22-23 in 1997 and viewed as “normal” by a doctor, would have been listed as quite underweight by the time he died. His BMI was about 17.5.
It should be noted that drastic/dramatic weight loss or weight gain are key signs of depression.
