    This is exactly my attitude towards this. If they have kids, I stick my legs out for them trip over in the aisle and start crying, little shits.
    Ok that's a bit far. I push them over. Just joking.

    Don't like crying children on flights though. It's hard enough to try to go to sleep in a chair, never mind when they're crying.

    On my last flight, my in flight "entertainment" just didn't work at all. I had f#ck all to do for 8 hours and couldn't go to sleep

    LOL

    Totally agree about children and flights. They really ought to put kids in the hold for long-haul (actually, **** that - short-haul as well). Like cargo.

    Why not ship them in containers?

    Probably fit around 300-600 children in a box. They do it with zoo animals. 😂😂

    All in all though, I would rather be tall rather than a short person

    Don't know. The hold has got oxygen in it, so I don't really see the problem. Chuck in a few Nintendo Switch and some fizzy pop and they'll be fine for a few hours. At the arrivals, just unload the crates of kids onto the carousel and the parents can wait for them to go round and pick them off with their luggage.

    Job done.

    Yep, agreed

    I'm currently 6'1, and although it's pretty much the ideal height for a guy atm, I hate it. I'm too conspicuous.

    6'5". I'm only half an inch off 5'8" as is. I doubt that extra 1.75 cm would have gotten me laid by now. 9.5 inches however I think might have been another story.

    6'5 it's only a few more inches and I'd have a bit bigger **** I guess
    LOL! No. It'd just look smaller relative to your height. No correlation.

    I would think there would be a number of issues with being 6'5 which outweigh it's "benefits". Such as finding clothing that fits, low ceilings and door frames, leg room on flights, health issues. I've got a friend who's significantly taller than 6'5. He has a custom bed too.

    I'm not tall, I'm pretty average but have issues in other respects. Height is nothing to really be jealous of. I'm sure it can be nice but as Reality Check has also said, it has its disadvantages. Average male height is about 5'10. 2" is really not that much, if it were more I might have to think a bit harder. 5'8

    I honestly hate standing out, but if I was completely ignored, then I probably wouldn't enjoy that either. Ugh, life.

    5ft 8 that way I can be attractive just by being the cute little guy taller girls love to hug. Being tall means you stand out too much and you have to get buff to avoid looking super lanky and awkward.

    There is zero scientific proof of height being directly proportional to **** size. The two things are not related. In actual fact the taller the guy the more his **** will look twiddly.
