Is that considered tall where you are? I'm also 180, and in college I was described by my roommate as "that short guy with glasses".

When I went back to visit my old high school teachers, I was a head taller than all the students (at that time only a few years younger than me) :o

Then like me, you wind up a big creepy tool...


this reminds me of my relationship with young children. Due to my size (180 cm) and clothing (solid black), I tend to appear somewhat creepy for children under 10 years of age or so. But once they get over that, I'm almost instantaneously figured for a pack mule they can ride on.


Pack mule...that's a good one. I always termed that "playground equipment".

actually, in Lubbock, 180cm seems to be about average for males. But I was referring to the way I'm 2 to 3 times taller than children which can be frightening for them until they realize I'm a ridable tree.

Although people have moved away from Itadakimasu's comment, i still demand an explanation to the 'greater numbers' theory.

If you're trying to pick up girls anyone will tell you that it's better to have more of them than there are of you, if you're the only guy it's even better. (Both because there's less competition, and they feel less intimidated)

Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

I read his comment to mean: "If you are of Race X don't sit down with girls of Race Y if there are more members of Race Y around than of Race X, because the Race Y males will lay a beating on you."

I am open to being disabused of that interpretation.
