i believe theres an "r" in dwarves
2001-10-14 05:23:20 PM  
Well, maybe they need dwaves too.
2001-10-14 05:27:33 PM  
Yes, there is an r in dwarves. Sorry for the typo. It really hasn't been my day.
2001-10-14 05:34:35 PM  
crap, I'm 5'4", one inch too tall, oh well
2001-10-14 05:35:44 PM  
What's a dwave?

I think american airliners have been using dwarves for years to design the seats on the planes. They apparently think anyone with legs longer than two feet is a freak who DESERVES to suffer loss of blood circulation.
2001-10-14 05:39:46 PM  
Ok I was trying to figure out what Dwaves was while the article was loading. I won't reveal what passed through my mind.
2001-10-14 05:41:19 PM  
Hey! i'm 5'1".. not a dwarf!
A dwarf is under 4'10".
good to know i could be an airline stewardess in the uk though..

What the heck is that, Happydude?

Anyway, that's pretty cool that they're asking for short people. Welsh Airlines is one of the few airlines looking at least somewhat down the road, instead of simply trying to hire as many stewardesses for as cheap as possible. Cool.

Finally, a job for my kin! We will no longer rely on carnivals to supply jobs for us!

A little off the subject but have you noticed:

Most tall guys go for short girls?


Most tall girls go for short guys?

Any thoughts? (it sure doesn't help the 69'ing)

I've got a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompety dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

What do you get when you guzzle down sweets
Eating as much as an elephant eats
What are you at, getting terribly fat
What do you think will come of that
I don't like the look of it

If you're not greedy, you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

If you are wise you'll listen to me

Gum chewing's fine when it's once in a while
It stops you from smoking and brightens your smile
But it's repulsive, revolting and wrong
Chewing and chewing all day long
The way that a cow does

Given good manners you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

Who do you blame when your kid is a brat
Pampered and spoiled like a siamese cat
Blaming the kids is a lie and a shame
You know exactly who's to blame
The mother and the father

If you're not spoiled then you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

What do you get from a glut of TV
A pain in the neck and an IQ of three
Why don't you try simply reading a book
Or could you just not bear to look
You'll get no
You'll get no
You'll get no
You'll get no
You'll get no commercials

Oompa loompa doompety da
If you like reading you will go far
You will live in happiness too

I'm like 6'2".There goes my dream of being able to dress in a stewardesses outfit and serve warm beer on a Welsh airline...
2001-10-14 08:04:32 PM  
And the stewards on this airline can inflict savage bites upon the kneecaps of terrorists.
2001-10-14 08:18:18 PM  
Rilos: Im 6'4, the wife's 5'4. Not sure what it is, but I like the short girls ;)
2001-10-14 08:31:33 PM  
I'm 6' 5" and would die to have a girlfriend over 6". Please tell me where they are.
2001-10-14 08:38:44 PM  
ScrapYard don't you think a six inch (6") girlfriend would be a bit inconvenient? She'd probably rather be with the guy from the twelve inch pianist joke.
2001-10-14 08:53:48 PM  
I'm 5'10" and have dated short guys, but I like a guy to be at least 6'1" so I can wear a bit of heel if I want.
2001-10-14 08:57:38 PM  
By the way, I was scared shiatless of the Oompa-Loompahs when I was little.

Mtrxhzu: That movie was one big acid trip without taking acid. Seriously.. it was a freaky movie for us young people at the time.
2001-10-14 09:30:56 PM  
Mtrxhzu: I got your height beat by an inch! ;-) You don't have to wear heels around me...although I don't mind them at all.
2001-10-14 09:47:24 PM  
this headline reminded me of the commercial for truck driving school (burlington motors needs drivers etc.).

Welsh airlines needs dwarves.
American Airlines needs dwarves.
Burlington Motors needs dwarves.

Cain: I hear ya, I'm 6'3 and my girl is 5''s not that I don't like tall girls....I've just never had one.

Mtrxhzu: All of the tall girls I know say the exact same thing as you....and end up with short 'buff dudes' instead!
2001-10-14 10:47:06 PM  
Scrapyard: You can have my ex-wife, she's 6'1".
We are both the same height and now we're divorced. What does that mean? Maybe I should consider a shorter one next time. Any women out there that are between 5'5 or so and 6' want to volunteer?
2001-10-14 10:52:00 PM  
Too Bad Hank the Dwarf is dead....this would have been the perfect gig for long as they let him wear his pink bunny suit.
2001-10-14 11:02:28 PM  
Eponymous: That REM CD has been in heavy rotation in my car for a week.

Rilos: Short and buff? no thanks, I like tall and sorta lanky. And I am listening to your music right now. Trancendance is very nice :)

Wolfanoz: I totally agree about WWATCF being an acid trip!
And we can negotiate on the heels thing....hahaha

Unfortuately I am old enough to be all you guys' big sister at least....such is life.
2001-10-14 11:17:07 PM  
Heh, if the Canadians can add a "u" to color, then what's the deal about a missing "r"? Actually, my mind must've filled it in, because I didn't catch it.

I think Norm Abram has the missing "r". He's always telling us about the "measured drawRings."

(why won't my password stay in memory?)
2001-10-14 11:20:40 PM  
Mrtxhzu: ahhh so what... age aint nothing but a numbah! ;-)
Most of us younger guys have our head on our shoulders anyway.
2001-10-14 11:22:46 PM  
Mrtxhzu: Did I mention I look like Keanu and have a hole in the crotch of my jeans? :-D

UNDERPANTS GNOMES! Bwahahahaaahahaha...never mind.
2001-10-15 12:16:56 AM  
i'm 5'3" and i always seem to end up with guys at least 6' tall, cept for my current who is prolly just barely under 6'.

i loovveee tall guys
2001-10-15 12:17:02 AM  
Huhmmm, just read the above posts about tall men and short women. I hadn't thought of it that way before reading the posts. I'm 6'2" and my wife is 5'2" and a natural redhead. I always thought we were together because my friend punched me in the ribs and said, "Dude, green eyes over there is totally giving you the check out. You definately gotta find out if the curtains match the drapes!" Yeah, he spoke in that manner. I did eventually find out the answer, and shortly thereafter had to part ways with my friend. She thought he was a jerk. Damn, I miss that guy.
2001-10-15 12:18:27 AM  
Wolfanoz: I think I love you ;)
2001-10-15 12:27:03 AM  
Mtrxhzu: ;-)
2001-10-15 02:18:57 AM  
well i'm 6'5" and 250lbs... and this chick says she'd go out with me if only she was physically attracted to me... and she's like 5'8"... does that mean I should chop off her legs?
and also, how are people in wheel chairs counted? is it the height of the person standing up (lying down) or sitting in the chair?
it boggles the mind...
2001-10-15 09:53:48 AM  

You mean you are 6'5" sitting in your wheel chair?

How tall are you when *you* stand up.

Verily, I does boggle.

Do you like chopped steak
2001-10-15 10:39:00 AM  
I'm relatively tall for a girl... 5'8"..the average height of a man! Its kinda funny to be as tall as all my guy friends. I dated one guy that was 6'4" and lanky...was never physically attracted to him. My current special someone is a shorter buff guy...mmm....
He just won't let me wear my heels that make me 6' tall ^_^
2001-10-15 10:46:13 AM  
Hmm...I'm 5'3" and my shortest boyfriend was 5'6". (And that relationship was doomed on so many levels.) Everyone else has been 6', 6'1", 6'4"....And yes, it definitely wreaks havoc with the 69ing, especially since I'm mostly legs.
2001-10-15 11:20:16 AM  
Mtrxhzu: Thanks for checking out my music! Let me know your faves!

Anyone looking for Doctoral Dissertations; I think we just came upon a good one.

Don't we all?!
