Very nice, me neither, but still from experience i mean it should be a reasonable deduction that such is the case.

Stalin and Napoleon were shorties as well. Was Hitler tall? He never came across as being tall in the footage I've seen him in... but perhaps he had big guys arround him.

I have always thougth it was the short guys that had to compensate for their obvious short comings by inflating their ego. :biggrin:

Oh, yeah, I am 6'3" have never been particually popular with the women (I seem to be more the brother type!) nor am I a screaming financial tycoon or a politican, so much for stereotypes.

Short people are smarter because they get more oxygen to their brains than the tall people in their thinning atmosphere.

It is an unreasonable statement to say that tall people are generally smarter. I don't think Alber Einstein was extremely tall?

Converting units....thats about 5'9, 110 lbs? So how big are the idiots? Height isn't correlated to intellgence but personal confidence, force of presence, and ability to influence people often are correlated to height, generally speaking, taller people are more confident, hold people's attention better, and thus are more listened to making them more success, its entirely psyhcological.

The reason why there were so many great short leaders is because short people are so good at manipulating big people.

Tall people feel superior because they can go out and hunt bears or something. But that's fine. You hunt bears and I'll run the country.

Mwa ha ha! :devil:

But we all know it's not the politicians who run the country, but the civil service (which is full of short people). Didn't you ever watch 'yes minister'?
