I wonder

if taller women are less into getting gifts from their men?

Rachel is pretty short, so there you go.

What is it with younger siblings labeling their older, and generally superior, siblings "short" when they are at most one inch taller. Oh and Yitzchak Zev, if you should ever read this, I am not at all conceding that you are an inch taller. I would stick a fork in your eye before I would ever say such a thing.

Your article quoted Shmuli stated that, "The researchers theorize that higher testosterone made the women taller while simultaneously causing their brains to develop to have more masculine features." Is this just a PC way of saying that which we already know, namely that men are smarter? (Oh, I'm gonna pay for this later).

Shmuli, have you ever stuck a fork in YZ's eye to date? Not that I would imagine he didn't deserve it...

mr. halevi, please use your superior intellect and philosophical training to reexamine the article and note how the conclusion you draw is not only unnecesasry given the speculations (unsupported) that the article presents, but specifically avoided by their phrasing.
(hint: there are, believe it or not, mental and behavioral "features" other than intelligence. often , in fact, said features are more correlated with gender than intelligence is.)

ps - my previous comment is "the pc way of saying that which we already know, namely that" certain tall women always fall for (react to) the same over the top sort of assertions...

gmar tov, all
