    at University of Chicago, where he was in my wife's class.  He's only about 5'2", dressed like a little Brooks Brothers mannequin, and bored all the girls by constantly talking about Freidrich Hayek and the Austrian economists. Poor dude couldn't get a date, which is saying something at least at the U of C, where "the odds are good but the goods are odd".

    BTW, I got nothin' against short dudes, but seriously - it helps to have a personality.

      on the Very Serious People, because they're totally buying his act.

      Glad you threw in the bit about having nothing against short guys. My husband is 5'4". :)
