5'7" here: I still duck on rollercoasters; I think they're designed to take your head or limbs off.
Lol tht should be on tht worst ways to die
6'4" and horribly afraid of disneyland because of possibly decapitation.
Finally, some advantages. Now back to my Napoleon complex.
Napoleon's height was in the men's average for the period.
yepperdo! Thanks bug for justifying my vertical advantages. All those tall people can duck!
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.
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.
thats the first 15 years of my life!
As someone who is 16 years old and only 5'1'', I approve of this comic.
I've found you can also throw them pretty good distances too when they become annoying.
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
And you can pretty much wear shorts all year round. Not a bad deal.
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
5' 9" right here, I feel your pain
Midgets: The Eternal Champions of Limbo.
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
As a 5'2" 18-year-old, this is quite true.
i predict some Short guys (cons)
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
eat it! lol
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.
Being 4' 11", I like to be reminded of the pros occasionally. The cons seem so prevalent.
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.
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…
Haha, I'm a short girl. Know the feeling
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
At 5'7" and 26 I can attest that this is all very true. Also, less chance of being struck by lightning.
192cm here, that is about 6’3.5″ … and I'm just happy.
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.
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
I'm 6'1 and I've beaten short people at limbo competitions plenty of times.
I do love short women, though. :3
REPRESENT!!!! Love it!
Being short has no shortage of advantages.
Hiya! I read your website every night, just after I water my garden
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.
Also, short people can survive higher falls than tall people!
Look it up!
