Leg Lengthening
Successful entrepreneur dies from Leg Lengthening

This man was a successful entrepreneur who worked for the likes of Google, Space X, received a degree in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon, founded some of his own startups and with all of that still never felt "respected". There was also the "women" thing. He actually died from a Pulmonary Embolism which came from a Blood Clot resulting from the Leg Lengthening procedure.

From the article:

"His last adventure sent him to Italy, from where, in late August 2017, we made a cautious attempt to reconnect through a phone call. He was due back to the United States in a few months. Instead, he came back to Canada, where my parents live, in a body bag."

 

"Though Yush had told me in August that he was going overseas to work remotely on a new start-up company, he had lied. He was there to get limb-lengthening surgery, a lengthy procedure that involves sawing through the bone, drilling a nail and screws into it, and in the months afterward, slowly, painfully pulling the broken bones apart by a few millimeters, every day for months, to add a few inches of height. Yush, who was about 5'7", desperately wanted to be taller."

This is a recommended read. The article was recently published also (September 25, 2019). We all know that Leg Lengthening has been going on for decades. A lot of people think that because of that, there are few risks if any at all. We can see that is far from the truth.

And now he's dead because of it. He should have learned to love himself. Half of the successes he's had in life most people can't compare, short or tall.

Because he's a risk taker, not delusional. You should actually learn from him. No amount of money or financial success can make up for height. If anyone knows better, it's him.

He's dead dude. 

Many of us here are happy and living fulfilling lives. Yes, some of us are happy and (gasp), shorter than you!

The problem is you and your attitude. Not how long your bones are.
