Reply Bugingforbug on January 27, 2011 at 11:42 am Lol tht should be on tht worst ways to die Reply Willhelm on April 17, 2011 at 12:05 pm 6'4" and horribly afraid of disneyland because of possibly decapitation. Reply ranndino on July 25, 2010 at 7:03 pm Finally, some advantages. Now back to my Napoleon complex. Reply Silence on February 24, 2011 at 9:46 am Napoleon's height was in the men's average for the period. Reply Response? on August 20, 2012 at 7:39 pm Nobody cares. Reply Ohjustme on July 25, 2010 at 7:49 pm yepperdo! Thanks bug for justifying my vertical advantages. All those tall people can duck! Reply Jazz on July 25, 2010 at 8:13 pm I anxiously await the cons. Not that I don't already know them, but every now and then I have to shoot myself down to avoid getting cocky. Reply KittyCasey on July 25, 2010 at 9:17 pm Short girl, but the pros are still awesome. There should be a cons list though, lol, just so we can get knocked back down a peg. Reply Darzen on July 25, 2010 at 11:40 pm thats the first 15 years of my life! Reply Anansi on July 26, 2010 at 12:42 am As someone who is 16 years old and only 5'1'', I approve of this comic. Reply Marrock on July 26, 2010 at 2:12 am I've found you can also throw them pretty good distances too when they become annoying. Reply Carl on July 26, 2010 at 3:03 am 6'5" and people dont believe me when I say I wouldn't mind losing an inch or 5. Thanks for putting my reasons in a compact and easily understandable format Reply wit on July 26, 2010 at 3:07 am And you can pretty much wear shorts all year round. Not a bad deal. Reply Stranger on July 26, 2010 at 3:38 am Being 18 and a good bit shorter than 6 feet, I don't know if I'm "short" or in the distasteful "midrange" where you have neither advantage XD Reply Kiba on February 7, 2011 at 5:05 pm 5' 9" right here, I feel your pain Reply Fizzledrix on July 26, 2010 at 5:33 am Midgets: The Eternal Champions of Limbo. Reply Klaue on July 26, 2010 at 5:34 am Being 200 cm, I can get you some more advantages of being short: Sitting in public transport without having to take up two seats because you have to sit sideways. being more stable when you stand in public transport because your center of mass is lower. Sitting in airplanes without getting horrible knee pains. Being able to but your legs under a table. having no problems buying clothes (I usually have to go to 5 stores to find pants and can only get shoes my size off the internet). Getting less spider webs in your face because all the other people allready cleared them. not having back pains after a day at work because the damn chair just won't go any higher. not having to think of that they will have to cut your feet off to stuff you in a coffin. not only seeing your neck in all the damn mirrors. sorry, got a bitcarried away Reply Mimizu on July 26, 2010 at 6:18 am As a 5'2" 18-year-old, this is quite true. Reply CLX on July 26, 2010 at 8:15 am i predict some Short guys (cons) Reply Schmuck13 on July 26, 2010 at 11:49 am I'm only 5'2" & trust me. it's no fun being short. especially when most of the cupboards in your house are at LEAST 6' and up…..good comic though ^^ last panel: Perfect Reply Goeber on July 28, 2010 at 9:06 am eat it! lol Reply Dolfyn on July 29, 2010 at 1:28 pm Well, if you're short, make sure you find a short mate. I certainly hated it when an ex of mine would hug me and put his chin on the top of my head. Reply Amilea on August 12, 2010 at 3:56 pm Being 4' 11", I like to be reminded of the pros occasionally. The cons seem so prevalent. Reply wayne on September 4, 2010 at 2:22 am Right on, Klaue! So many people say that they wish they had my height – The fools! Okay, sure, it's convenient not to have to haul out a ladder to change light bulbs or reach the top shelf, but I have to search long and hard to find clothes that fit, ducking under doorways is a reflex gained from painful experience, and worst of all, for some mysterious reason, everybody feels compelled to ask me if I play basketball. As an aircraft mechanic, I often find myself wishing I were much smaller, just to fit into all the tight spaces. One of the worst things, though, is that mattresses are almost always too short, so my feet always stick out over the end of the bed. If you have a cat, you know why this is not ideal. Unfortunately, I have a cat. Reply Kurt Sasso on November 8, 2010 at 5:30 pm Woohoo! I can add to this; I'm 5'3" tall. 1) Dancing with women. Perfect excuse to innocently rest your head on their two shoulders… wait, those aren't shoulders. 2) You can play football AND hit below the belt of taller people and claim that you are "protecting yourself" (true story against the 6'6" line in high school… Ref nearly gave me a 15 yard penalty.) 3) Can help install speakers into the trunks of cars. Make sure they don't close the truck on you though… Reply carriana on November 19, 2010 at 12:45 pm Haha, I'm a short girl. Know the feeling Reply JayKayHaze on December 27, 2010 at 8:52 pm I would have rofled, if in the fourth panel There were two birds instead And I'm a short person but at least I'm Italian Reply Surturs Bane on January 27, 2011 at 4:15 pm At 5'7" and 26 I can attest that this is all very true. Also, less chance of being struck by lightning. Reply Silrog on February 9, 2011 at 2:31 am 192cm here, that is about 6’3.5″ … and I'm just happy. Reply Elkian on February 17, 2011 at 2:28 am And in fighting, too. Better access to delicate areas like the feet, shins, groin, and gut, while your opponent has to deal with hard bits like the skull, shoulders, and rib cage. Reply stuffsticks on February 26, 2011 at 7:20 am You forgetting never having to look directly at a showerhead while showering of sleeping with your feet hanging off the end of a bed… the world is geared for the shorter people, go to Mexico if you want proof Reply Bonabon on February 27, 2011 at 2:23 pm I'm 6'1 and I've beaten short people at limbo competitions plenty of times. I do love short women, though. :3 Reply Eber on March 4, 2011 at 7:48 pm REPRESENT!!!! Love it! Reply JerksWithWhips on April 21, 2011 at 11:01 am Being short has no shortage of advantages. Reply clothes airer reviews on August 4, 2011 at 10:34 pm Hiya! I read your website every night, just after I water my garden Reply enchantedbrick on July 18, 2014 at 3:57 pm Well height is a big one. I am 5 foot 4 and 3/8th but everyone give me the extra inch. Seriously, for a woman I do have a bit of height complex. All of my siblings are taller than me so even though I am an adult I still feel like the baby of the family. Only karmic balancing is that dad is shrinking and is more at my eye level. Oh, and to make things more comedic the man I love is 6 foot 1 inch. I round up but he rounds down and just states 6ft. Reply Camolot the Creator on April 1, 2016 at 1:17 am Also, short people can survive higher falls than tall people! Look it up!
