Interesting Fact # 1069 - Height

According to researchers from the University of Sydney and Canberra's Australian National University (ANU) tall people in Australia earn higher wages than their vertically-challenged colleagues.

(They found a strong link between wages and height, particularly for men, with each additional 10 centimetres (four inches) of height adding three percent to hourly wages. I guess you can just tower over your boss and demand more money.)
