Darn, I got only 23 right. Now it's going to bug me, wondering which ones I got wrong. Most of them seemed pretty easy!

What about the average height of American men? I would have thought around 5'11". My father is 5'8" and he was dead average as a young man, but I would have thought it would have gone up more in the last 50-60 years. OTOH, I knew it wasn't 6'2" so I guessed right.

Oh, also could you have just missed filling in a question?

There was an interesting article in The New Yorker a few months ago about how American heights have stagnated. I didn't follow all the science, and didn't agree with all the methods or all the conclusions I did understand, but the take-away message was that a 100%-Euro-ancestry male born in the US will, on average, end up 2 or 3 inches shorter than his distant cousin born in western Europe.

I think I guessed the just-under-six-feet option. I'd thought the answer was 5'10", and that wasn't one of the choices, but I would've guessed the one closest to it.

Possible! I guess I'll never know.

Unsolved mysteries are so sad!
