Do you have an aversion to fighting and winning wars? Or tend to surrender at the slightest danger? If so, it's probably the french in you coming out. :P

According to the link I posted earlier it would seem the average height of the French is some 5.5 cm shorter (5 ft 7.3in) than their UK or US counterparts (Male heights) which is about 5ft 10in for both, so apparently there is a bearing on it.

Yes apparently the tables in the white flag factory's were too low and most French stoop a tad :-)
