I missed this article a few months back. Very interesting. Some quick takeaways:
– Napoleon was actually tall compared to the average Frenchman of the time!
– People who are at a “height disadvantage” have many health challenges, but so do tallies.
– I have referred to “heightism” before in reference to being overlooked for movie roles because of being too tall, but clearly, this happens a lot to those on the other end of the spectrum.
– I am shocked about the salary information!
– Like the young ladies featured in the “Tall Girls” movie, people who are shorter also take drastic measures to change their appearance. Surgery for two and a half inches of height? Ouch.
