    Tall people have more cells in their body. This increases their risk of getting cancer.

    For that reason, and others, I would rather be short.

    Who have I to impress by being tall?

    I find this unreasonable if you mean tall as in like 6ft. If you are talking like 7f, fair enough but at like 6ft I would assume the chances of cancer increase so less it's not even worth mentioning. I mean cancer is random, it can happen to anyone so why be afraid it?

    10% increased risk of cancer for every 10cm of height.

    16% increased risk of cancer for every 10cm of height.

    Hardly negligible, is it?

    Depends entirely on the initial level of risk pre-increase. If it was low then a 1000% increase could be negligible.

    Is your 5 inch penis negligible?

    Be overweight and just lose the weight.

    But if you couldn't lose the weight then I'd still go for the 6ft and 17st option. That doesn't sound too overweight tbh.

    Actually, I'm rather well endowed. Best to find something else to try and insult me with because I know one cannot insult that.

    being overweight is worse bc...

    urmm hello Bruno Mars is hot af and he's only 165cm tall
    Spoiler:

    but i guess if you're taller your weight distributes more evenly so you could argue that but still
    165cm is about 5 foot 5 I think. And that for a guy is very short, and we're talking 3 inches shorter than that.

    oh ... that's shorter than me! Well if he's THAT short then i think overweight would be better cos he could exercise and be healthy and tbh some overweight guys are still cute so

    Being short is worse. You CAN change your weight, no ifs or buts.

    And then consider the odds of getting the particular type of cancer associated with increased height, and from that the odds of dying from cancer.

    Society is incredibly shallow. For a 5'2 male, your male peers wouldn't give you any respect, and females wouldn't acknowledge your existence.

    What is worse for a male being overweight or being short?

    Let's assume you can't change your weight and it's static. You are in the obese category 6ft and say 17 stones and for short let's say you're 5ft 2.
    For every girl its different. Personally I would take a short but healthy guy as a bf or husband over a tall and fat one because he's going to have loads of health problems in the long run.

    I'd say short.

    Being overweight is something you can change. You don't have control over your height.

    Thanks this has been productive. What have we learnt?

    Being short is way worse than being over weight. Small people of TSR would rather be short (biased results on their behalf)

    Grow tall and eat like a machine
