Yeah, I don't get it. 'Bronx Bum' has proved himself to be a malicious troll who is apparently on here to fuck with ppl but he hasn't been permabanned. Though I have to admit this site does get kind of boring sometimes without trolls...

You really don't understand that the persuasiveness of being tall and good-looking is SUBCONSCIOUS...

Nobody thinks "I don't know how much to believe in his argument because I can't tell if he's 5'10" or 6'1". Instead, they think "I don't know why, but (tall/handsome/confident)'s argument makes more sense than (short/overweight/ugly)'s argument."

Average penis size is around 4.5-5 inches. Any info on how much more per inch people with big dicks make?


Yeah, keep telling yourself that....

If you think that being 5'9" is going to fuck up your career, then your inferiority complex probably will set you back a bit. You can't change your height, so who cares what the impact is going to be?

what about women?
I met a woman a couple of years ago. She did not know me that well - yet she talked on and on about her height (about 5 ft) and its negative impacts on her life (love, career ....) I felt really sorry for her and I thought it was merely an inferiority complex.

When you get above 6'6" you begin to feel freaky as well so it can go both ways....
