    Context. That depends. Say you wanted to go the US, you might just google it, and you might just ask people what the good sites are

    It is as it says. A Pakistani society, where Pakistanis (majority) tend to talk, but then you might get the odd Indian, or white person etc.. that might be interested to know stuff perhaps

    Hmm yh I do see quite a few but then I see even more shorter ones, perhaps it's an area thing so like the most 'type' of Pakistani lives in one area more? Lol like their ancestory 'tribe' might generally be short ....
    I read this back and think it sounds dead stupid ... But hopefully You get the gist ...

    Tbf, Pakistanis "tend" to be a bit shorter than European people Though Im happy being around the average for an English person

    Also shorter people live longer apparently - if it weren't for the fact that we're predisposed to a **** tonne of health issues

    Yeah we're pretty predisposed to that kinda stuff unfortunately Though diabetes type 2 is generally lifestyle choice.Let's say the person who's most likely to have high cholesterol is a 40+ year old, south Asian male, who doesn't really do any exercise and is a couch potato

    At least you have your gender going for you On the plus side, it's harder for us to get skin cancer, and our eyes are better in the sun (unless you're me ) because of the brown iris

    Hmmm interesting stuff right there, ngl tho pretty sure most pakis try stay out of the sun due to this 'lighties are more prestigious' -(which I'm extremely against)
    Guess we gotta stay away from the barfi's guys
