The old English class system ensured that tall meant rich.
Here's an experiment for you to perform; it will teach you to abandon Euclidean prejudices. Measure your length at one end of the bathroom, and then quick (but real quick, you hear? Like, approaching the speed of light or somethin') run to the other end of it, and measure yourself again. You'll notice a sizeable difference in height. No mystery there, to be sure.
On a quite unrelated note, I'll be in Portland, ME at a conference in May. Any cool spots I shouldn't miss in that metropolis? Any Sehenswuerdigkeiten, things like that? And I'm not talking about the L.L. Bean-clad local strippers here.
