I know I have commented before on obesity being an issue here in NZ, much like in any other developed country of the world…but what I have not perhaps mentioned is just how big some people are.
The Pacific Islander community reveals some enormous folk…not just the rugby players but generally. It occurred to me that even some of the women dwarf me…in fact never mind that…some of the school children dwarf me as well! Quite staggering. The Dutch are a tall people but they are much less intimidating because they are not broad as well.
On those occasions when I go out to bars, you often see bouncers and they can often be from this community as well. They were particularly scary to see on Hallowe’en!
I guess the moral of all of this wisdom here imparted is this…if you are going to pick a fight or just have words with someone, you need to look at them first and assess if there is any value in such a confrontation at all.
