|If I give you a miter box saw, will you use your sufficient tallness to prune the trees in my yard?
No, you say?
Not a fair trade?
How does one calculate the value of tallness?

|RR can't be ask to prune trees, he carries a little baby in a sling.|

|Never too early for children to learn the value of manual labor!|

|Mandiferous, "How does one calculate the value of tallness?"
Somebody once asked Abraham Lincoln, "How long should a man's legs be?"
Lincoln replied, "Long enough to reach the ground."

|I'm glad it was Lincoln's legs they were asking about.|

|As with all things, the value of tallness is determined by the purchaser's need for tallness. No one will pay premium for a 7 foot tall man when six feet will do the job.|

|Some people might pay more for a 5 foot tall guy with an extraordinary intellectual capacity.
Some people place a higher value on stupid 6 foot tall people with extraordinary productive abilities.

|Can I barter intellectual capacity for tallness?

|I need a saw sharpening. I need my saw sharpened in a bad way.|

|OK NiN, you make a cartoon about me where I look all tall and skinny and have big boobs and long eyelashes and make me out to be a superhero and a rock star. Then you hack into all the local news outlets so the word spreads all across the city and my music performances triple in audience size and people flock to me for autographs and six digit job offers.
In exchange I will write your jingle and get my movie star friend to sing it for you.
We can talk about it over lunch where you'll be all charming and witty and I'll buy us some Jack in the Box 99 cent Tacos.

by L.S.Erhardt on 7/23/2009 @ 11:31am
|How about trading that drill for an AMD K-6/ 500mHz computer with 128 MB PC-100 RAM, nVidia TNT2 graphics with a 20 gig HD, running Xubuntu Linux?|

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
