This Just In: Tall People Are Smarter!

This sounds completely plausible to me

Childhood scores on intelligence tests show a correlation between height and cognitive ability, and this remains true throughout life, they report.

Yet more evidence that Edmund Burke was right: Prejudices can be useful–if short people are being discriminated against in the job market, it’s only because (statistically speaking) they’re dumb as a box of rocks.

Yep… Being tall has its advantages. Except on airplanes. That sucks. But being as smart and successful as I am, I am getting more and more upgrades to first class these days, so that’s not as big of a problem any more…
