In Hamburg, everyone is tall, and all the children are blond.
In Die Welt I read an article about a doctor in the Black Forest who specializes in making people taller by breaking their bones, inserting nails, and letting the bone grow back. There was a photo of a young Turkish woman before and after she "grew" 25 cm, almost 10 inches (her legs looked better afterwards). It seems extreme, but according to the doctor, some people find being short even more painful.
One man in the article, who is my height, explained his desire to be taller by saying, "Have you ever been to Hamburg?"
