I'm sorry, I'm so sorry, I've got to be the asshole again.
I'm an American from the South. I'm caucasion, no matter what stupid white people who make Taco Bell references at me think, and as such I'm not as prone to being nearly as short as some of you by default.
Why am I saying this is going to be extremely inconsiderate? ----- I'm 5' 7'' and I'm one of the shortest men in the 20-30 year old range I know. Yeah, that's not nearly as bad as a many of you, but that still gets annoying when you're trying to be taken seriously by a classmate, or teacher, who is forty, when they're looking down at you and you're surrounded by people pushing 6 feet. So, in some small way, I understand.
