fzumrk: How is it the tallest nation?  I thought most of it was below sea level.


It's so they can keep their heads above water.

She is tall enough.


This makes me want to visit some regions of the Netherlands, some Nether-regions, if you will.

Supposedly the Dutch became so tall because they were the first country to discovery calcium many centuries ago and they ate a lot of it -- or something like that. Or maybe I just heard a false legend.

Whenever I'm in Holland, Germany, or Scandinavia, I do feel like a midget* in the land of tall, blond giants.

Isn't the country sinking? Maybe the people are the same height but they are measuring from the old spot.

Cafe Threads: Midgets in the woodpile?

*clicks article*

Oh, I see. Environmental changes caused by industry.

*sighs*

We.do not deserve this planet. I hope humans never get the chance to take over any others, our heads for the most part are NOT screwed on straight.


Not what this means, based on TFA.

The difference is only 1 cm, and mostly due to the population of immigrants from other places.

Also, it seems that no one is able to take errors into account, for any study, due to the need to report some kind of result - nobody is interested in reading about a statistically insignificant result, so every study reports a 'significant' result.

You know, there was a time when even the slightest "Airplane!" reference would have ended up being a huge thread of everyone bringing in quotes and pics. Plus maybe even some boobies.

///guess it's the wrong week to expect lots of "Airplane!" quotes.

I have a Dutch coworker, he's ridiculously tall. I tease him about it now and then, but I feel sorry for the guy. Clothes and gear shopping is hell on him.

Where there is Faith, there is a diet of lies.

Assume, skeptically, that anything some hawker is trying to ban is a vital necessity of human life, but be moderate in your skepticism and don't over do it in the opposite, contrarian direction.

No milk? A touch of what you fancy does you good.

No meat? They're just Bogarting the good stuff.

Tiny houses? Don't get me started on how this serves only the rich and the near-rich in their supersized mansions.

If it's Bourgeois, it is theft and fraud. They cheapen all they buy, and adulterate all they sell.
