Dominic Wilcox is the inventor of the first periscope glasses specifically designed to see over tall people. He got the idea after watching a short woman scramble between people just trying to get a glance at what was happening on stage. He knew that there had to be a solution, so he got to work and created a pair of glasses that uses two alternative pieces of glass that allows the user to take there vision two feet taller than normal.
What do you think, is this hot or not? Do you see this being the next big thing or will this just be a gag gift for your one short friend? If this trend catches on tall people will start having to use them to just to see past whoever is wearing them in front of you.]]>
So how do we go about meeting tall people? It is pretty simple really, go to events where tall people are usually found. Going to volleyball games, swimming matches, or basketball games will be a prime way to find tall people. Tall people like things that they are naturally better at, so any event that tall people will feel like that is a safe bet.
Believe it or not, there are actually tall conferences all over the united states hosted by different organizations. They hold these for the fact that tall people have a lot in common and usually get along with each other. Go out and spend a dollar or two getting yourself a ticket to one of these conferences. It will be worth your weight in gold.]]>
Grey Hounds: This famous breed is among the tallest and the skinniest. They are engineered for speed. They are fairly lightweight and thin but have long skinny legs that can propel them at very impressive speeds. This type of dog is very famous and is most often the poster-dog for dog shows because of their beauty and obedience.
–Doberman Pinscher: We all probably have a cousin or uncle that has one of these awesome dogs. They are known for their health and friendliness. They are not the tallest breed but still stand taller than most and checks the mark for being skinny.
Great Dane: When talking about tall skinny dogs there is none greater than the Great Dane. They are of the tallest breed of dogs and are absolute giant! These crazy dogs were bred for hunting larger game.
There are many more breeds that are tall and skinny but these are my favorites.]]>
A tall radiator is an internal heating device. A lot of older homes have internal heaters that go along the walls of rooms. Hotels often do as well. They are almost always horizontal and are parallel to the floor. It wasn’t until recently that some creative home designers decided to build some that didn’t look like such a sore thumb. So they decided to design some that go vertically instead of horizontally. This is where the phrase “tall radiator” comes from, but are they any good?
The worry about their efficiency is because hot air rises and cold are sinks. Horizontal radiators are low to the ground and blow the heat down to push the cold air around. The science seems pretty clear, but overall where or how you put your radiator doesn’t make much of a difference. It will heat a room just as good as any radiator. If you are in need of putting a new radiator in your house, choose whichever you feel looks the best.]]>
She was born on July 2, 1989, and has since become an olympic gold medalist and an American Hero for America during every world cup. She graduated from the University of California and made her first professional appearance playing for the New York Flask. She also hold a place as one of two women who scored over 20 goals and had over 20 assists in the same year.
Although she appears to be quite beastly on the field she isn’t as tall as she seems. She stands a little over five-foot-seven, which compared to some of her competitors really isn’t tall at all. However, that hasn’t appeared to stop her yet.
From her success on the field, she has also been ranked by Time Magazine as one of the top paid females athletes in the world. Not only is she an athlete, but has also ended up acting. Her first film was called, Alex and Me, where she played a fictionalized character of herself.
Let’s wish our women’s team the best of luck in the following matches!]]>
We would connect to one line, zip down the mountain, disconnect, and hook to the next. We zipline for over two hours before we had circled back to the start. More than one of the lines was over a mile long and was so long you couldn’t see the end of it from the beginning. After my experience, I was curious if there were any ziplines longer than the one I had just been one. Turns out, there is!
In the United Arab Emirates, they have a zip line that is almost two miles long. Which was built by the same company that has the title for the majority of all the longest zip lines in the world. If you are out looking for a thrilling experience, look no further.]]>
First things first, not all ties are right for all guys. If you happen to be a tall skinny guy, you want a tall skinny tie. Most ties at the stores aren’t properly designed for this not so common body type. The base of the tie is too large and takes up to much of the body. Your necktie needs to complement your body shape. Being tall and skinny requires a tie that is tall and skinny, being short and stout requires a tie that is just that.
Your tie also shouldn’t hit the top of your belt buckle, it is too often then I see guys sitting on their ties because they are too long and other guys with ties that don’t even hit their belly buttons. On a final note, textured ties are the newest trend. Wearing wool ties or other ties that have are textured materials is what will make you the trendiest.]]>
I don’t think it was because I practiced more than they did, I was just two feet taller than them and had a large wingspan to match. The math is pretty simple; the longer the lever the more power can be exerted. The farther away an object is from the source of power the more velocity it will take on. In this case, your core is what creates the power and your arm acts as the lever upon which the power can be distributed to the ball. The further away the ball is from your core the faster the ball will be distributed.
This is why so many world famous pitchers are always at least six-feet tall or taller. If you are short, this doesn’t mean that you can’t play baseball, it just means that you might want to play to your strengths and play another position.]]>
The tower is named after its creator Gustave Eiffel who was the main engineer for the design and construction. It is as tall as an eighty-story building and is the tallest building in all of Paris. Not many people know this but the first two levels have restaurants and other activities for visitors to enjoy while being at the tower. If you ever catch yourself in Paris, I would highly recommend visiting the tower.
It took over two years to complete and had its grand opening in the late 1800s. At first, many artists criticized the design and ridiculed the engineers because they felt that it was unappealing to the eye. However, since then it has become a major icon for all of France. It was constructed as a symbol of the hundredth year or the revolution of France and is now a global destination for millions of people each year.]]>
It seems as though every year someone decides to try to break the record for the tallest building in the world. With every inch higher there accompanies great engineering to keep that inch from falling to the ground.
Every city in the world seems to have tall buildings near the most desired part of the city. Rather than building outward, we build upward to keep everything close together. This comes at a cost, our work and living quarters are multidimensional and shoot high into the skies but our roadways are one dimensional. Which means that at the end of the day we all move from standing on top of each other to standing side by side. This is why we see bumper to bumper traffic and sidewalks packed end to end with people and their bags. It almost doesn’t seem like building tall buildings is even worth it but we can not defeat our natural desire to always “go big”.]]>
