Regarding Reaction Range

The studies are getting better. I have an exam on Friday, so I have been barreling through pages and pages of textbook. In fact, I have a funny quote:

In societies in which nutrition has dramatically improved, an entire generation has grown up to tower over the generation before.... Ultimately, height has genetic limits; we do not see people who are only a foot tall or who are 10 feet tall.

I guess it's funny in context. The book works so hard to be factual and specific and scientific. And here's a little bit of silliness in the midst of all the professionalism. Hah.
