I can see movie opportunities in both areas, so I am torn.
And why do we only get little old ladies ?

If I was a six foot bird, I'd be putting all me money in life insurance, never mind a fckn ISA

Taller people are more likely to get cancer so die earlier.

People shrink as they get older.

Did they torture him a lot on one of those stretching racks?

Also remember average height for someone who is 90 is much smaller than average height of someone who is now 18.

Not just cancer, healthier in other ways according to recent news. However, longevity is also related to foot size. Best size for men is 11. So you need to be 5'5" with size 11 feet.

Don't be silly - they would just be a smaller dwarf as you only shrink a few inches.

Shorter people live longer as they are less likely to get cancer according to that study that was in the media a few weeks ago.

I guess that argument is that cancer is directly proportional to tissue mass.
which makes sense. the more cells you have, the more they can go wrong.

Who would you rather be -

1) a big tall handsome man who bullies his way all the way through his life but dies of cancer in the end (MF scenario)
2) small ugly dwarf who gets bullied all his life and then the bully died from cancer he realises that his life was wasted and commits suicide (suity scenario)
