Why do tall people make more money?


Unfortunately, this article also lends some legitmacy to the importance of high school athletics....

"The economists report that "after controlling for age, height, region and family background, participation in athletics is associated with an 11.4 percent increase in adult wages, and participation in every club other than athletics is associated with a 5.1 percent increase in wages.""

Spike posted a link to the best place to live test. It's personalized and it tells you the best cities in the country for you to live in based on your responses to the questions. I'm apparently living pretty close to my ideal spot. My number one city was in upstate New York, my number two was in Northern NJ, number three was New London, CT and number four was Middlesex, NJ (which is only about a half hour from where I live now).

And, just for Becca, my number ten city is State College, PA. :)
