Was she 5'4"? Proly Goldilocks. My hair is 3ft huuge. I didn't make it to a hairdresser for...some time...They never cut as one wants.

Are you Gulliver?

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Well, I'm tall, but my feet are disproportionally large (47 or 48 depending on the brand). Makes shoe shopping a total nightmare, especially for running or biking shoes.

And I have to have a size and a half bigger Nikes for running, you should have your custom made. Czechs, Swedes and Croats are tall - I bet they have more variety in shoe shops. Do you keep your shoes in a garage?

The tallest guys I know are yanks, though. My guitarist holding a guitar looked like with ukulele.

So, Trump or Biden. They have very little time to affect anything, really..before the elections, I mean.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I have 50% Norwegian and 50% Russian blood. So we're tall people in my family. Nobody under 1.80m. And me, holding my bass, ALMOST looks like a guitar. Anyways...back to Biden. Never would have thought he's tall, I always got the impression he was rather small-ish.

I am considered short back home, everybody's into volleyball and beach volley.

The truth is, I never noticed Biden's posture. A future potus has to have a presence. I know it may seem as a detail, but I think people care for details, in general.

By Aristotelian standards, Trump is a great character: he's not "good" (as measured by conventional ethical standards), but he certainly is "appropriate" and "consistent", and his plot/mythos reads just like the pages of a greek tragedy suitably adapted to our times. So I can see that. Probably not all that different from the stories we don't read enough about in contemporary politics from the Phillipines, Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, et al.
No, he's reminding me of a certain character from "The Hanging Stranger" by a Philip K . Dick, in fact the whole political climate not only in the USA but other places too seem depicted in those short stories. That man was a visionary.

We don't react anymore to any form of abuse of power, everything is just entertainment. It's not real. It is for the show. It's not happening....till it's happening.

I thing many people try to intellectualise and sugar coat things that in a normal society, where educated people haven't been seduced by populism and slippages of any kind would never be acceptable.

Fake news!!!! Everybody knows that Trump is 6'3". People say that he is maybe taller, they say he's at least 6'13". Barron wears elevator Nikes, you've all seen the Fake News pictures.

(Joe wears size 12.5 shoes? )
If you see Trump pictured next to 6'1 Obama, there's very little between them. I'd put him about 6'1 on that basis. Biden looks about 5'11 to 6'0 next to Obama.

Maybe Trump was 6'3 at his peak but not now.

His kid Barron is huge though - at 14 must be 6'5 minimum.

That puts him dead on for 6'2, he also has terrible posture which might explain why he's missing an inch so often when next to other people.

Or, could be just wearing flip-flops, that takes about an inch off. (or thongs as they are called here..).

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

There is this article about emails form Hunter Biden's laptop finally reported by a "reputable" news source (WSJ) - after Facebook and Twitter banned any link to this article originally from the New York Post...Hmm...Censorship anyone??

https://www.wsj.com/articles/collusi...b-2447cab785f9

Breaking news: CSPAN has indefinitely suspended the moderator of the cancelled 2nd debate, Steve Scully, for lying to them about his Twitter being hacked when he sought advice from Scaramucci about how to handle Trump in the debate.

Not a great week for Joe!
