O well if you are German, I can see your point. I rarely met any German guys less than 6 feet.
老外 is mandarin, I lived in Hong Kong and we use 鬼佬 for the same thing. just for your $0.02
睾 is different from 高, BTW do you read traditional chinese? that's cool my german friend is still poor after 2 years in practice.
i'm even tall by German standards though haha. my mandarin is coming along slowly. my cantonese suffices only for cab driver smalltalk up to 800 metres. i know pinyin and a little simple chinese but my writing looks 'like that of a three year old'. i wish i had more time to learn it, though. my girlfriend in china is Italian so now there's another language I wish I had paid more attention to in school...:S
@ citan: light cyan/white gingham PS?
