    In college I dated a gal who was from Ashland, so I've been to that town twice.

    Does Lythia Park still have that springwater?

    My former student in Medford, who is also a few grades away from a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, loves Japan, studies Japanese on his own, and hopes to go there one day to study real Japanese Karate.

    How exciting! I wish your former student good luck.
    And as far as I know, Lythia park still has its spring water ^.^
    It's great to walk around there - totemo kireina desu.

    honestly I hate this height for these reasons:

    1.height is important for playing basketball,especially if you wanna get into some leagues,unless you are so good like Earl Boykins,Muggsy Bogues,Spud Webb

    2.can't play the position that I wanted,since when I started playing basketball I wanted to play Power Forward,but now due to my height I play Guards when playing with bigger guys [6 ft +]

    3.common to see white girls taller than me

    well it is genetic..since my parents are short...gotta live with it~

    I'm 171 cm. Perfect height for Japan I think. I love being short according to American standards but I still fit right in...here in Japan.

    And so far, both Shortest and tallest are taken by Canadians, if people voted as they posted, Kikyo at 1.52 and myself at 2.01

    Diversity is all that counts :P

    (Then again a trip to Japan could be virtual suicide for me...)

    Looks like I am in a major minority here. I am just 5'0" tall.

    I'm only 5'6"....and I doubt that I'll get any taller in this lifetime.
    This is the result of one to many hits to the brain cavity with a suicidal brick wall.....

    A couple of things. While I don't doubt that the listed difference in height is accurate, the picture capitalizes on an optical illusion which makes the already significant height difference seem even more dramatic. Here, look again:

    Quote Originally Posted by Dream Time

    Note Ming's feet, which appear to be "lower" than Boykins's. He's clearly standing in the foreground, perhaps several meters from Boykins. To get a better idea of how they would look standing next to each other, visualize twice the vertical difference between the base of Ming's and Boykins's respective feet. Now subtract that from Ming's height.

    (Ming will still be considerably taller than Boykins, of course! But thinking about it like this might help overcome the exaggerated impression we're given from the picture.)

    Also, with regards to the use of the metric system (SI) in US schools, the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) has long recommended that all state and county math curricula place an emphasis on teaching SI alongside the English Standard (ES) system in the early grades (see a very broad overview of the suggested standards here).

    But, given that the US still uses ES for many business applications (e.g. liquid volume of beverages, although SI units are also listed), in much of the media and sports (e.g. "10-yard line"), and in day-to-day practice (e.g. I'm 5' 10" tall), I don't think that much more than the basic structure of IS sticks in kids' minds, at best.

    However SI is used extensively in many high school and college courses (at least in the sciences and mathematics), though we often continue to use ES in those courses, as well. For example, although I mostly used SI, I once had to answer a question in Differential Equations about "mass" using ES. I didn't even know what the units were for measuring mass in ES! I had to look it up (it's "slugs," by the way).

    I agree that it would be much simpler to do away with ES and exclusively use SI. But that seems to be taking us a very long time...

    I agree completely, the metric system is much easier to use and you can use common sense to figure stuff out because its based on tens, like kilometer -- kilo=1000 so 1000 meters which is much easier than memorizing that there are 5280 feet in a mile. Its too bad the change is taking such a logn time...
