Does size matter? - attraction


Bigger is better. Isn't that the American dream?

Why buy a road-hogging, critter-squishing, bumper-defying, wall-of-metal SUV when you have the delicious opportunity of import a Better road-hogging, critter-squishing, bumper-defying, wall-of-metal SUV?

Why calm down for a puny three-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage of our parents' age group nestled comfortably on a green plot of land with a few nice shade trees? In new "developments" these days, you can desire a two-storey home stuffed clear of the chattels line of today's incredible lessening lots, absolute with a bedroom that can sleep 34 PLUS a walk-in closet that sleeps an added 20 AND an ensuite bathroom big a sufficient amount to store your SUV when your 300-cubit-long garage is full of toys or tools. (That's one arc-full, in case you didn't know. )

I commit to memory early in central drill how the teachers made us line up according to height beforehand we could go into the school. I consider it was a appraise of our universally consummate conduct that I had a load of time to be inattentive in line while some of the more energetic family were rounded up by the sheep dogs.

My line-up belief often crooked to dissecting discipline rules in hopes of conclusion clever life in them. Even though my futile quest never succeeded, all was not lost. As one of the shorter kids in my class, I urban a theoretic framework for the "lining up by height" rule. That framework took the form of three questions:

  • If size does not matter, why were we being sorted by height?

  • If size does matter, what do the teachers have aligned with us shorter kids, assembly a daily ceremony of the height we lacked?

  • If big is better, why were the shorter kids given the front seats with the advance view?

    Although the answers to those questions hang about a mystery to this day, I am committed that size does not affair (except when a big name offers me a slice of cheesecake - yum!).

    My wife and I witnessed an breathtaking ceremony of aviation the other day. Two hawks were airborne about crosswise the street, swooping right over us at times. They were annoying to begin a new nest.

    Usually, hawks fly anywhere "up there", detached silhouettes aligned with the blinding brightness of the sky. But on this occasion, they were airborne low an adequate amount of for us to make out the insignia beneath their wings: the deep, dark brown and the sandy tan feathers.

    And low adequate to see the ensign of the diminutive birds (sparrows, perhaps?) charitable chase. It was an even match, or so it seemed. Two sparrows versus two hawks. OK, maybe not from tip to toe even. Each hawk looked big an adequate amount to gulp down a sparrow in a lone chomp, like a character might swallow a grape. Come to think of it, this match did not look any more even than if I had been sited in a ring with a well-fed sumo wrestler.

    Yet there they were, two big hawks, agile and majestic, the bane of field mice everywhere, organization difficult exercises to evade the slightest touch of the tiny sparrows.

    Why? For the reason that sparrows are more agile than hawks, and can more by a long shot attitude themselves for attack. As sparrows are less fragile than hawks, and do not fear plume destruction to the same degree. As sparrows are faster than hawks, so they can more certainly back away if they have to.

    Sadly for the hawks, their size was of a small amount comfort adjacent to the aloof skills of the sparrows. And sadly for us, it appears we will NOT be study the comings and goings of hawks nesting crosswise the street.

    Does size matter? No. But if you want to make that slice of cheesecake just a bit bigger, I would be much obliged.
