3 inches of pain
This procedure seems reasonable for midgets, or other deformities but for people 5'6" you'd think that this surgery is pure vanity. But that may not be true, a survey of CEO's of fortune 500 companies shows that they are on average ~6' tall. Another research study that followed thousands of people from birth to adulthood shows that an inch of height above the average of 5' 9" is approximately equal to a salary increase of $789 a year.
What do you think? Is this vain, or a good way to get around prejudice against average/short people.
