Yahoo! News - Want a Raise? Standing Tall May Help

"MIAMI (Reuters) - Tall people earn considerably more money throughout their lives than their shorter co-workers, with each inch adding about $789 a year in pay, according to a new study."

If this is true, its offset by the cost of clothing, stuff at Big and Tall aint cheap, size 14 EEEE shoes don't come for $40 at wall mart either. And at 6'4'' finding a car to fit is always a challenge.

As seen on /.

Update: after posting this I realized it was the perfect intro to 1 Samuel 16:1-13 the anointment of David.

When [Jesse and his sons] arrived, Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, "Here he is! GOD's anointed!"
But GOD told Samuel, "Looks aren't everything. Don't be impressed with his looks and stature. I've already eliminated him. GOD judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; GOD looks into the heart."

3500 years later and we're still impressed by tall people.
