Can REM Sleep Make You Tall?

Mr. Tall spent last night in the hospital doing a sleep study. You know – where they hook dozens of probes up to you and then expect you to sleep deeply so they can monitor you. Right!
Anyway, he had a conversation with the tech guy about kids and how some of our kids sleep deeply, but others are light sleepers.
The sleep tech said that you need to get into a deep REM sleep stage in order to grow as that is when your body does all of its’ growing. I found this interesting as I sleep so well that an earthquake couldn’t wake me at times.
I must have done a ton of REM sleeping as a kid and during puberity. So I told Mr. Tall that from now on, he needs to wake me every hour so I don’t have a chance to enter into REM sleep as I don’t want to grow any taller at this point.

Men’s Long Surfer Style Shorts

I just came across some cool looking, longer surfer style shorts for men. These are not “tall sized”, so I’m not sure if the rise will be long enough. However, they are some of the longest shorts I have found.
