Except it makes complete sense, 99% of men over 6'1 are beanpoles who take 5 years to put on muscle.

I'm about the same height as Downey. It used to bother me but not so much now unless I'm around a bunch of taller guys.
The guy is insanely successfully and has a bajillion dollars. He could bed almost any woman he wants. He gets to be god damned Iron Man. You'd think he'd learn to accept his height by now. Genetics prevails, baby.
>mfw he is just some 16 year old kid who is nice to everyone around him and he wakes up in a lower middle class home where he lives with his mother who he rarely sees because she's working 2 jobs to keep them afloat and he lives life completely oblivious to the effect that his height has on his life and at school he's tried bringing roses for like 3 girls and they all reject him and he has no idea why so just to feel the sweet touch of a woman he goes to that Laker event and for the first time in his life it hits him just how short he is when those two women flank and tower over him and he feels like soul shatter knowing that htere is nothing he can do to fight genetics so he smiles and looks at the camera when the cameraman says cheese and he feels his soul drain out onto the floor and he goes home and there's nobody there and he flings himself on the bed and cries why oh why me and after much googling he decides to order himself some shoe lifts but because he's poor he doesn't have the cash so he sneaks into his mom's room and shedding a tear he steals from her personal stash of money and she never knows and once the shoe lifts arrive he puts them on and grows to a height of 5'5 and spikes his hair up for the illusion of more inches but it doesn't help him at all because the stress and guilt of having stolen from his mom is all he can think about so he goes home to apologize and she isn't there and she doesn't ever show up again because the police arrive late that night and tell him that his mom died in a car crash and he is forced to move in with his abuela in sacramento and he lives his life with the regret of never being able to say sorry, all because of those damnable shoe lifts
You should hear the stuff women spew about him too. They love him yet he still wears those godamn ridiculous boots.
It must be some personal complex or something. At 5'9" you aren't *that* short at all. Maybe he had a late growth spurt and was an uber manlet in school, that could explain it.
Manlet could be spelled as manlette, similar to cigarette in that they are a man, but smaller (hence the -ette suffix).
Compare that to lanklet. Just from a word construction perspective, it would be read to mean a smaller lanky person.
I understand that it doesn't have that meaning, but from that grammatical perspective it just seems really stupid to me.
/fit/ occasionally cranks out some funny content
>mfw you'll be a buff as fuck manlet who sleeps alone every night
