One inherent advantage that short people have over tall people.
« on: January 12, 2018, 06:51:49 AM »

In fistfighting, given equal skill, tall people are have advantages due to heavier mass and longer reach.

In gunfighting, it's the other way around. Given equal skill and short people have advantages. Apart the fact of being a smaller target, a short person would be more agile in moving and dodging the bullets. Also, easier to hide and cover oneself.

Now, we found one reason to be short.

Thank you. It's not so much about me thinking positively. I'm just stating what it is. I didn't say that every short guy shall reap this benefit or this advantage outweigh the disadvantages.

And who cares about height when your opponent's dead, right?

Seriously though, this is an extreme example. There are more realistic benefits that shorter people can experience without guns or aggression: more leg room on transportation vehicles, bump into things less (e.g. older architecture), and can sleep comfortably on a couch when crashing at a friend's place.

I'm giving a legit example. What you mention, however, are jokes.

It's not. Advantages in gunfighting give you power, who the fk is worrying about sleeping comfortably at friend's place? You gotta be kidding.

Unless you live in a warzone I wouldn't count this as a benefit.

One of the stupidest and most pathetic copes I've seen this user post in my entire time on this site.

1.) Nobody is impressed by people who pull guns on anyone. Being able to beat someone's ass in a fist fight is a sign of masculinity. Pulling a gun on someone like a scared pussy isn't.

2.) You're not a character in a war movie. You're not a veteran either. You have zero experience being on a battlefield. Being a "smaller target" isn't going to help you not get shot.

3.) Unless you live in the U.S., and in a state where it's legal to own and carry a gun, or in some war-torn country like Syria, it is literally one hundred percent inconsequential whether or not you're a "smaller target" for gunfire or not. Are you expecting a shootout to break out spontaneously? Give me a break.

The real "advantages" of being short are inconsequential bull  like what Android said: more "leg room" on public transportation, slightly longer lifespan, pay less for shoes because your feet are smaller, blah blah blah. No one cares about this crap. If any of these "advantages" were worth a damn this site would be a ghost town. Get real.

Chuckled. Sure thing, this is sentiment I can agree with.

I agree that in general, defeating someone in gunfighting is not as impressive as beating someone in fistfighting. But it also depends on how you shoot. Shooting point blank would be seen as scared pussy, but a few hundreds feet away could be perceived as impressive as it'd show that the shooter is a dedicated shooter who possessed a considerable amount of skills in shooting a gun eventhough it has little to do with masculinity. Secondly, it takes a lot of guts to be in a gunfighting in the first place (I'm not talking about shooting someone from the back). So your opinion of beating someone in gunfighting not being a sign of masculinity might not be entirely true.

Needless to say, soldiers use gun, mafia uses gun, cowboys uses gun, even punk uses gun. Why isn't there anyone saying Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson are scared pussies? Sometimes it's not always about impressing people and attracting the opposite sxx, but getting the job done. Fact is a gun can put your enemy away for eternal in a wink of an eye regardless of how impressive it is.

It might not a benefit everyone would experience. But an advantage is still an advantage. Short people who are not looking to get laid every night might not reap the benefit of LL as much.

You are forgetting the key advantage of being shorter: longer life! In modern times size for physical battle is no longer necessary and it has been shown that the genes for longer life are found more in shorter people. Longest living people in the world are Okinawans, and in Europe in Sardinia

It is not advantage at all, it can be but not for all short people. It is not accurate thing that all short people live longer than tall people. There is possibility that I may live shorter than tall people. It is just like ridiculous consolation for us.

No, there's a strong statistical correlation. Some even say women live longer than men on average because of the height difference. Taller people are also more likely to develop types of cancer.

The longest living people in Europe are the Sardinians, and not the Scandinavians, despite the super high living standards there, for a reason.

The main point one can use to argue against this is that it's better to lead a shorter life living as a taller guy than a long life as a short guy. Which I'd agree with.

But I wouldn't consider it as an advantage. I don't care whether I will live more than 5-8 years compared to tall people.  Only thing that I care is to live confidentially with normal height. I

You do realise that living longer basically means having less chance of developing life threatening diseases like cancer and heart disease. So a short person in his later age is basically healthier ceteris paribus

Whether or not being shorter and living longer is worth it is another issue, but it does not take away from the advantage of longer life for shorter people
