I'm a 24 year old white male from California who moved up here to Spokane, Washington a few years ago. I stand at 5'9" which is average height in the U.S. In California I was pretty much the same height as everyone else and sometimes taller. Now that I live here in Washington EVERYONE towers over me, it's crazy, the men are like 6'2" average height and the women are like 5'9" are you people giants? what are you being fed? is it because Washington state is homogenous and European? I don't get it. From the boring WA lifestyle, racism, and drunken rednecks, to the horrible weather, this state continues to amuse me in many ways.
