    Hmm. Interesting theory. The problem is that 5'8" guys like myself and you, Sarge, don't exactly support it, lol.

    It could be a reversal of your cause and effect, though. Maybe smaller people feel more need for help (reaching things) and so develop a mindset of letting others do things for them. But those of us of a more diminutive stature who are also tool-enabled didn't have those problems, since we adapted (by standing on a chair or stack of books) and overcame our disadvantage. We then developed a mindset of self-sufficiency and that leads to a position of readiness and ability to help others.

    Or so I'd like to think! :)

    Well, height being proportional to EDC is definitely an interesting comparison. I have to say, I didn't really see that one coming. But I have to say that I think that a lot af human perception is biased by some sort of evolution. For example, we all have a sense of self defense long before we have a need for it. It only goes to show that certain traits are breed into all of us, so why not the tendency to EDC cool gear!
