Some Of Us Don't Need A Soapbox To Stand On

"Don't believe everything you read." We've all heard that.

OK, so don't believe everything... but maybe you can believe this, from a few weeks ago:

Taller people are smarter: study

Aug 25, 2006 — NEW YORK (Reuters) - While researchers have long shown that tall people earn more than their shorter counterparts, it's not only social discrimination that accounts for this inequality — tall people are just smarter than their height-challenged peers, a new study finds.

I think it absolutely imperative that people pay attention to these researchers.

That I say so has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that I'm 6'8" tall. Nothing at all.

And how tall are the researchers?

They are both 5 feet 8 inches tall, well above the average height of 5 feet 4 inches for American women.

No, nothing at all.

Update: Not at all related. Not a bit.

Of course this has nothing to do with the recent study showing the Dutch are on average the tallest folks. Russ - you're only half Dutch - what happened?

Oh no I'm only 5'3''. I guess all my studying doesn't matter because I'm just not tall enough to be smart.

You had better hold your tongue or i'll jump up on a bar stool and kick your knee caps off. Want to bet that this idiot study was made by a tall idiot.
