    Just saw this article and video on yahoo and thought it was interesting
    http://news.yahoo.com/video/us-15749625/28417568

    Do you think its weird?

    I'm short at 5'6 and a half and I never considered myself short at all. I don't feel short, but looking at this video is just weird to me. I know it must be hard for straight guys that are short in the straight world but does that apply the same to the gay world?

    I would never do it personally because I don't really care for it, but would you do it if you knew you could grow a couple of inches to half a feet in like 3 months?

    It does make you cringe to see that. I wonder if they can run and work out normally after the procedure finalizes healing. Well if they're happy then more power to them. My height is one of the few things I am 110% content with, I would never want to add or subtract a single centimeter of how tall I am.

    I think being 6'1 instead of 5'9 would actually make a difference in my life, but I would not want to endure that. Plus my legs are already disproportionately long. I'd want torso lengthening, lol.

    Find a doctor who will crack your spine and stick a tube in there, sounds totally safe to me! icon_biggrin.gif

    I remember the same procedure existing before where they repeatedly had to break the leg and reset it just a fraction apart but without the rod implanted. In that case, I think the leg would be weak, but with the rod, maybe it adds some strength...?

    How about an extra vertebra or two?

    Oh, it's so tough being perfect, isn't it, Ariodante? icon_razz.gif
