Well, are we talking real inches, that start at "1" and move through consecutively ascending numbers, or are we talking man inches that start at "4" and skip every 2 or 3 numbers on their way up to "horse"?

I'm only 4'2" because I start measuring at my taint.

Me and my 22* inches don't know that the hell you're talking about.

Where do you think the term looking down at someone came from?
 
2009-09-10 01:03:10 PM
Something tells me the OLS used here wasn't quadratic in height. An extra inch for a 5' guy is probably much more valuable than one for a guy at 6'.

I wonder why a lot of famous dictators/despots/generals are short. Is unhappiness the key to success? :/

Yes, but shorter people live longer. ;-)

2009-09-10 01:05:13 PM
BS. Only thing that rang somewhat true in the article was that I have more stress/anger than the normal person. Problem is, I can trace that right back to my environment and it has little, if anything, to do with my height.

What defines tall? I say I am average at 6' and my wife is short at 5'

Msol: Something tells me the OLS used here wasn't quadratic in height. An extra inch for a 5' guy is probably much more valuable than one for a guy at 6'.

Agreed. At six flat, I'll take money over another inch. Also, going from five flat to five-one seems pretty pointless to me, you are still really damn short.

However, I think guys at 5'5" would kill to get to 5'7" or 8".

Unless you measure the vertical while you are horizontal... then Viagra IS happiness.

Of course I misconstrued the headline.

That is where my mind is today!!!

I can't back this up with Science, but the biggest whiners, complainers, and biatchers always seem to be short. I have run into millions of those people in my days, and not a single one ever seems to be over 5'6".

My secret hypothesis is that tall people don't complain because they can get over it.
 
2009-09-10 01:09:31 PM
6'8" and I'm a very happy guy that is for damn sure.

tortilla burger: I dunno about that; this guy seems pretty happy to me.

he is feeding off his wife's Tall.....

But really, the Big K(i call him that as a reference to his keebler esqe height) is happy because he was right. Poor dude was treated like Carter for not selling out the public utilities of Cleveland, he was painted as the devil, and essentially chased out of politics. it took almost 10 years for the city of Cleveland to understand this little elf saved their backsides.

He deserved any look of smug, hot wife or not.

Hey you're 6'9''? I'm 6'9"! We must know each other. Everyone is always telling me about you when they hear how tall I am...
