Taller people are smarter: study

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.
Full story here.

Your honor, I beg to differ. The evidence simply doesn't support this wild allegation. Case in point, I give you exhibit A:

Oh shoot. Being tall myself, I wanted to believe that. Now I'm right back where I was. LOL

Is Bush really that tall? Looks to be about 5'10" to me. Course...I'm about 0' 3" so all you humans look tall to me.

That would make you exhibit B, Kvatch, further bolstering my case.

No matter how tall Bush thinks he is, he isn't. For me, I am the national average in height, but the distance from the head to the foot really doesn't matter much unless you intend to put foot in mouth frequently. Hope your cold is better.

I don't think GWB is all that tall. He looks positively shrimpish when standing next to his own father, or Jeb, or Clinton. While I don't agree tall people are smarter, they do grab some respect just by forcing others to have to crane their necks up to look 'em in the eyes. That's why I believe all important business should be done while seated ... or prone. D.K.

Okay, so now "our" pResident is being used as an enrollment hook for a Canadian College.

Peace.
