Psychonaut's heights?
    #3696976 - 01/29/05 06:39 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I'm curious, do you ever find there to be a connection between someone's height and the likelihood they are a psychonaut? Seems like most of the people I know who are down with tripping and drugs are at least average height. I myself am above average by a decent amount (6'2") and I would call myself a fairly dedicated psychonaut. This is not to say I have not met short people who use drugs, but that there seems to be some correlation between height and the likelihood of an individual using drugs. How many inches above or below average are you, based on an average (in America; Sorry, I tried to find a worldwide average but no luck) in Men of 5'9" and 5'4"?

EDIT Dammit! I voted for 2 above because im so stoned... could one person whos 2 above pm me and then vote five. Man that was a dumb move lol.

K,
Peace

this is simple math. if the average person is 69 inches then the average tripper will be 69 inches. its the numbers.

I don't know if this relates much with the topic, but scientists except that human's physical evolution will involve gain in average height, and o-ther things i forgot about.

Ya that's what i thought. Maybe the future evolved form of the actual man will be more of a spiritual being than today, and you can't say that the shroom experience doesn't have a huge spiritual side to it.

This is all useles guessing though

I am only 5'4" and think that this poll is totally retarded. It's based on a person's mentallity not hieght. Maybe it would be based more on a persons background exp. if a person comes from a broken home or not?

Hah, are you guys serious? For a bunch of shroomers you guys sure can't think outside the box very well. God, open up your eyes and try and understand what the point of the test was.

Here's to the geniuses saying the average height of a shroomer will be the average height of people in general:

Is the average height of a horse jockey the average height of people in general?

Why is that a higher percentage of professional musicians are gay than the national average?

How come R&B has been more popular among blacks than other racial groups?

There are effects from the outside world that weigh on us and affect what we can and can't do in life, or choose to do or not do. Perhaps a short person or someone not interested in working out would find that they can't compete in sports, and are driven to music or art. Perhaps due to height or appearance certain groups of people are ostracized and are driven to experiment more with drugs.

THAT was the whole point of this poll: to see if for some reason the typical shroomer is NOT in fact a typical person. Would the typical sized person doing typical things be as likely to search for an atypical experience like those found with drugs?

And did any of you notice the disproportionately high number of really tall people in this survey?

Nevermind that, the results are not extensive enough to even warrant a conclusion, so I'm not going to draw them, and you guys shouldn't be either.

On a side note, Lun4e you really should've just made the poll out to be people's exact heights, not some arbitrary relative height based around what is supposedly the average height of the country.

Plus we wouldn't have people messing up the math trying to figure out what "2 above" means.

I'm 5'8" and there is no way I am only 1" below the average at my college. Whoever said we are getting taller in general is probably right. Nutrition is better today than it was even 30-40 years ago, and I don't doubt at all that today's generation is growing up bigger than their parents' and grandparents'.

Nevermind I realized why you did that now, since you have men and women voting on the same poll.

Still, it would've been nice to split it up into two polls and make it a more straightforward set of data.
