First time I've heard of this before, this morning on WABC-NY. One can pay $75000 (usually not covered under insurance) to grow about 3 inches in height by having doctors literally break your legs and arms and do some magic to get the bones to regrow after slowly being stretched. The kicker is that you spend 6 months in a wheelchair and the final result is not complete til about a year. They interviewed somebody who was 5'6" and is now 5'9". The guy was older, I'd guess in the low 50s. Now, I have seen it all, that is insane, to spend $75k to sit in a damm wheelchair for 3" of vanity. Complete hogwash and I am befuddled as any sane human being would care that much to be taller. The program goes on to state that for every inch that you grow, you can make $800 more per year (doing what- changing light bulbs???) so lets say this guy is average and now makes $2400 per year more than before... I wonder if he calculated the $75k that he just layed down to do this????? HELLO??? A person who is so vain as to think, I want to be 3 inches taller is only blinding himself to reality. I am 5'4" and have absolutely no desire to be 5'7", 6'0", 10'+! Just look at all the stuff I can get at closeouts because it doesn't fit everything else... I can buy small sleeping bags that weight 19ozs, I can find cycling shoes on closeout. Why would I want to be like "average"? Jay H Brought to you by the letter "Silica"
