Well, well, well... It looks like being 5'7" (170 cm) is finally paying off.

Taller people face a higher risk of catching COVID-19

Who can we really believe anymore? ?

Okinawa (and Japan) should be relatively safe compared to the US. The average height in the US is 5'9" (175 cm) while the average height in Japan is 5'2"(160 cm). That explains our relatively low numbers compared to the US, and not the fact that we're not testing, doesn't it? ?

This is from the New York Post, mind you. I think they're just reaching for clicks at this point...

Well, I was the shortest in bootcamp, that's for sure.
I wasn't the shortest, but I definitely was the lightest. By third-phase recruit training (USMC), I weighed in at 119 lbs/53-54 kg (the lightest of the 80~ recruits at any height) which scared my senior DI enough to put me on double rations (plus plus), ensuring a DI watched and made me eat all I could before quarter decking me to death afterward. ?

I think I left at about 120-125 (max), which was still quite below weight.
plus i'm O Positive in blood type so my blood is saving me i guess
And another coronavirus guess. ?

I think I saw this one earlier and was like... :rolleyes:

Can we all just get COVID-19 and get it over with already?
