this thread made me think of this: i have this faint memory of reading/hearing something about inside heating. according to that source ppl with inside heating will be longer (not in one lifetime but over some generations) than ppl in warm countries with lots of 'outside heating'.
but of course theres always exceptions, could be that all dutchies outside of my province are so much taller than the ppl here that we get a higher average...

I think the Dutch are supposed to be the "biggest," which would mean tallest and largest overall, I guess. Who knows...I didn't see too many massive people when I went to Holland! The Masai are very tall but quite thin, I think.
