This was by Lior, right? (BTW, is it coincidence that it's a homonym
of "liar?" <smirk, scrape in profuse abasement for bad humor recently

Think about the idea of body types as related to personality
characteristics (LaVey's version of this in _The Satanic Witch_ works well
when applied...):
height = agression factor.
agression factor = resistance to control.
control = function of religious doctrine [ref. _The Prince_ by
Niccolo Machiavelli].
agression factor = resistance to religious doctrine.
height = resistance to religious doctrine.
height = tendency toward atheism or agnosticism.

This assumes, of course, that body-type classifications for
personality characteristics are valid.

If when we part, we become particles -- does that mean that physicists will
never be unemployed?
