    Post Classify Dirk Nowitzki

    Ok, I must admit my reputation as a sub-racial expert has taken a bit of battering with my classification of that East Baltid woman as a Cord. However, I blame the photos for the debacle. Anyway, time to get over that and have another shot.

    What do you guys think of Dirk Nowitzki, the German basketballer of Slavic (Polish?) descent?

    I have to say I'm not quite sure what he is. He may be a Corded Nordic, but then again, he has features that could pass for an overgrown Falish. I'm particularly interested in his classification because he looks a lot like me (though I am certainly much better looking).

    He is a Franconian giraffe.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    I don't see Falish. He looks Polish but I don't know what type.

    He misses indeed that rock-steady bulky body constitution associated with Faelids, the face might be called large but certainly not coarse and the face height isn't outranked by the breadth, so considering the great size of his face, it's more Nordid than UP; however his macroscelia, whereby the length of the arms and legs are longer than usual seen among many European races, connects its possitively to Cro Magnon or Combe Capelle with their "equatorial" growth of the members.
