    Why do tall blokes always talk rubbish about short blokes? Do you think they are compensating for something?

    They all just go on message boards and rant about some imaginary short guys and their even more fabricated characteristics and stuff.

    Napoleon Syndrome - aka Short Man Syndrome. They're short and feel inadequate, something that matters a lot to guys. That's why you always see short guys that are very muscular, they're trying to make up their lost masculinity with muscle.

    So do you think the really tall are naturally more chilled out? Or is it the lack of oxygen up there making them all giddy?
