Size matters

A fun little article about how we got so damn tall, and you didn't:

"The average male American men's height is 177 cm, which is 69.7 inches, which is approximately 5 foot - 10 inches tall. (for white males*).

The average female American women's height is 163 to 164 cm,
which is approximately 64.2 to 64.6 inches, which is approximately 5 foot - 5 inches tall. (for white females*)."

Cool, I'm taller than your little American girlies. And the fun thing is that by the time we have grandkids, we'll both have shrunk to around 1.68 cm...

Look, height does not matter. I'm 5'4 have a 300 thousand dollar education, a trust fund worth over 60 million dollars which is more than most tall and short people, and don't really care how tall a person is. Height does not matter, short people just let themselves get trampled on.
