Short People Are Dumber Than Tall People?
This feels SO UNFAIR to short people, who already get so much grief on a daily basis. So eff you, Edinburgh University in Scotland, for running this study and giving us no choice but to talk about it.
Their new study of more than 6,800 people found a, quote, "significant correlation" between being SHORT . . . and being DUMB.
They found that the average short person is less intelligent than the average tall person.
For the study, short was defined as any woman below 5-foot-3 and any man below 5-foot-9.
The study was based on genetics . . . so, basically, they're saying whatever genes you got from your short parents are also making you short on intelligence. Ouch. (Daily Mail)
