Eat well and grow taller?

I just came across a really interesting article that talks about some very strong correlations that are being found between proper nutrition and height, specifically in the fact that as Americans' diets get worse, we've stopped getting taller, while much of Europe, with less of a reliance on McD's *is* still getting taller.

It makes you realize how important nutrition is, not just for immediate health, but for growth potential, too. Perhaps Mom was right when she said that eating your veggies will make you grow up tall and stron. . .

You yourself are well over 6'3", right?

Almost. . .

Very close. . . I'm right about 6'2". ;-)

Apparently I didn't go hungry as a child. <g>

Re: Almost. . .

See, the problem is that I am so stumpy that all tall people look the same height to me. :-)

You could have told me you were 6'8" and I would have believed it.
We wouldn't know, cause despite knowing him over 5 years, he has never seen fit to share with us a picture! The bastard!
Yeah, for all we know, he's 4'5".
When I last saw him, he was working a Johnny Depp look. So imagine this (very poor) approximation of his face suspended about 6'2" off the ground :-)

Cool!

Hey, that's very cool. ;-)

Did you do that by hand, or was that generated/created/etc programatically?

Either way, that's slick. I think I'll make that one of my user pics. ;-)

Re: Cool!

I used this tool to make it!

But you really should consider posting real pics for your adoring fans!

Re: Cool!

Yeah, I know. One of these days I will.

But until then, this is one nifty tool. Thanks muchly for sharing it with me. ;-)
