Advantages That Can Be Disadvantagious

So I'm tall. 6'4"ish. It's not as great as you might think. Today for example I went to the local IMAX and caught a double feature. You'd think they'd have large amounts of leg-space so you could recline comfortably whilst watching fuck-huge movies swirl across a screen the size of an aircraft carrier, but it turns out they don't. I walked out of the theater with a wicked bad cramp in my legs on account of being shoved into a space that was essentially no larger than a can of packed sardines.

Talk to me about your disadvantageous advantages, SE++. Are you tall like me and have to suffer in a world designed to fit the needs of shorter--nay, lesser beings? Perhaps you have a large amount of melanin in your skin that naturally shields you from the harmful rays of the sun, but simultaneously lessens your worth as a person in the eyes of people in possession of a paler, more skin cancer-y prone complexion. Tell me your woes, bros.

    there's nothing really special about me, advantage-wise

    i am a white male born to middle-class parents

    none of that carries any real disadvantages as far as i know

    How many airplanes do you fly in? I've never had a comfortable flight at my height. Sitting in coach is like being shoved into a cattle wagon, but with better service.

    I don't think anyone, regardless of size, is particularly comfortable in an airplane.

    The only time I've ever flown first-class was when I got upgraded for free when I mentioned to the ticket counter lady that I was on my way to my dad's funeral.

    She didn't even mention she'd upgraded me, and I didn't realize it until I actually got on the plane. So that was pretty cool I guess!

    It's so much more comfortable to fly business class. To me it's worth the money.

  • bsjezzbsjezz Registered User regular
    edited January 2011
    i don't think first class is even worth it

    as a free perk? fuck yeah, hook me up

    but thousands and thousands of extra dollars of my own money i'd rather hang on to, thanks, i can deal with a stiff neck and plastic cutlery

    Maybe for an international flight but most domestic flights I can get business class for only $100-250 more. For flights over 2 hours I like it. On AirTran I just upgrade at check-in for $49 each way.

    I fly a few times a year, and yeah it's uncomfortable but hardly torture. The only that's been hindered by being tall is maybe buying pants that fit correctly.

    My time in first class wasn't really any better; I got a Row 1 seat with about maybe six additional inches of leg-space. That was a shitty flight.

    oh, I have the ability to fall asleep anywhere, and usually within a few seconds of closing my eyes

    wood floor? yep

    metal chair? yep

    in a jacuzzi? yep

    child's bed? yep

    standing up? yep (well, leaned against a corner)

    it becomes problematic because I'll actually fall asleep ANYWHERE if I'm tired, and it becomes a regular thing for me to sleep in bushes or on a bench or in an abandoned building or next to an active railway, even when only slightly drunk

    there are no places i cannot sleep

    as far as being tall on airplanes, if you can't get in the exit row try for an aisle. That way you can at least stretch out one of your legs.

    I feel like a major advantage I have is my rational mind. I feel like i am smarter than 90% of people I meet in terms of just raw intelligence (lol bragging whatever).

    However this causes me a lot of problems with emotional and social issues. I just... don't really understand emotions. They cause me problems.

    So essentially I feel like my intelligence is both an advantage and a disadvantage.

    I'm somewhere between 6'3" and 6'4"

    My knees are usually up against the back of the seat in front of me on a plane

    If I sit up perfectly straight and the person in front of me doesn't recline at all then it's fine but that's not exactly a comfortable position for multiple hours either!

    why the fuck can airplane seats recline anyway

    there is not enough space for that at all

    I don't stress out about much, or very often. Which can be good, cause in panicky situations I tend to be a calm and controlled voice of reason. However, at the same time, I can't really work up the ability to be stressed about important things I need to get done.
