MIAMI (Reuters) - Tall people earn considerably more money throughout their lives than their shorter co-workers, with each inch adding about $789 a year in pay, according to a new study.

There was a man that lived here that was over 7 foot tall.He was constantly ribbed by short people.He had stored a bunch of put backs up and when a shorty shot off their mouth,he let them have it with both feet.My favorite was when he was asked the classic"how's the weather up there?"he would say"I have a phone booth in my a$$,why don't you call up and ask me!"

Aha, guess that is the short of it eh?

IMHO we shorter in stature, excel in many
other ways, and I disagree with the comment
by the facts of this study.
They certainly did not interview, nor check
out many of we shorter people.... haha

well there might be some truth in that - a gal i knew made more money in high heels - oh that's right, she made her money by taking them off!! never mind :)
taller is better though - tall tales get more press than short stories :)

OK now I know why I am under paid!
However, Clod is not short and
he is underpaid, too!
I guess he is an exception;
I knew he was exceptional. ;-)
