Subject: Australian politician made herself taller
YelliChink    6/1/2009 5:52:35 PM I don't get it. Shorter people have an advantage of having less stress on their bones and joints, thus will carry less problem when in ages. It's actually shorter and smaller people (but not midgets, or, in politically correct term, small people) who usually live longer and healthier.

Unfortunately people in Australia don't consider any health benefits from being smaller as being as important as the advantages of being taller. There was a recent study done that showed that men on average earn thousands of dollars a year more for ever inch over average height. Its all to do with presence and confidence. Sad but true.

And, taller people will need that extra income to pay health insurance or medical-related tax when they are getting older.
Especially the ones who artificially made themselves taller.
