The Wages of Short

A thoroughly unproductive Sunday spent reading newspapers and magazines*, lolling in the back yard, and munching on the leftsover of some great parties nonetheless led to the revelation of a valuable, memorable, and hopefully true factoid:

New York Times excerpt:  
		Women would relax their standards of how tall they want their mate to be if the man earned enough money.  
		How Much?  A man who is 5-foot-6 would need to make $175,000 mre a year to be considered as desirable 
		as a man who is 6 feet tall.


*OK, perhaps not totally completely unproductive.  Physics Today had an article on the unexpected observation of a "pair-production" supernova!
