Height means nothing, except for those that watch too much TV, where a midget like Tom Cruise can appear to be 190cm.

In reality, it's surely all about proportion.
"Turne ye to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope,
even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee:"

~~~ZECHARIAH 9:12

"Or fill high hawkfell of my hand,
with skalds reward for skilled word?"

I'm only about 160cm or so (yea im short due to a few factors) but I've never had anyone ever mention my height or lack there of. My girlfriend is just a bit taller than me and from the start she said she didn't care at all. She said if she towered me she might feel a little weird but for her it's fine to be a bit taller.

Here is the heartwarming story of a man--not so different from many on this board--who learned to embrace the little people:

http://www.tuckermax.com/stories/the-midget-story/
“If a bodhisattva resides as a householder and there appears a woman who is clearly unbound to anyone, habituated to sexual indulgence, attracted to the bodhisattva and seeking sexual activities, the bodhisattva having seen this thinks, 'Do not make her mind upset, producing much misfortune. If she pursues her desire, she will obtain freedom. As expedient means [upaya] I will take her in and have her plant the roots for virtue, also having her abandon unwholesome karma. I will engage in impure activities [abrahma-carya] with a compassionate mind.' Even practising such defiled activities like this, there is nothing that is violated [precepts], and much merit will be produced." -- from the Yogācārabhūmi Śāstra

For even more saucy Buddhist scripture, see http://sdhammika.blogspot.tw/2010/08/st ... m-all.html

I'm the same as this guy, I'm around 196cms and ALWAYS get comments about my height and apparently my "big" nose which is seen as a very good thing in Taiwan...apparently lol also I keep getting told I look like Jason Stratham which is a great bonus.

Are you really the same guy but with a new handle?

Cuz Funk looks exactly like Jason Statham. What are the odds that two foreigners in Taiwan are 194cms and look like Jason Statham? :ponder:

Have you ever had a polar bear sit on your chest?

Height

Postby headhonchoII » 07 Jun 2012, 08:25

I'm 210cm and weigh 250 pounds, the locals always mention that I look like the Rock. Even though I look like a gorilla but no matter. I may be a little bit dumb to believe what the locals say but hey I am not the first foreigner to post this boring shit about themselves. They also say I have a big mole on my face which is a great bonus apparently.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
