Can I eat corn to gain some weight?

I am a 19 year old teenager, I weight about 63 kg (138 lbs) and my height is about 176 cm. I want to gain weight because I look a bit skinny. Though according to my BMI, I'm average. I was wondering whether eating corn alone everyday would increase my weight and benefit me at the same time. I surely don't want to gain weight going to McDonald's.

Finding the one (BMI calculator that is)

A while ago, I saw this great BMI calculator that had accompanying picture of simulating body which, through a slider (?) could change from "fat" to "muscular". I found that I could reproduce fairly accurately the shape of my body (including the dreaded fat bulges...) with it and found it much more useful to see what I should target for. Unfortunately I can't find it again amongst the morass ... Surely AskMeFi sleuths can find it!

Is BMI Bogus?

Is BMI Bogus? My employer is providing an incentive for the employees to be healthy. Assessment of health is based upon cholesterol, blood pressure, no nicotine usage, and BMI. I feel that blood pressure and cholesterol have a large genetic component and that BMI doesn’t reflect who is and who is not healthy. I need help making a thoughtful, respectful argument.
