    This I do not dispute.
    I just claim that the error of the taller observer is the SUM
    of the error of the shorter one PLUS an additional error.
    And that it is unlikely that these two summands will
    have opposite signs.
    
    But I agree that there should be experiments in the literature,
    and that it would be very interesting to find this literature.
    
    Alex.
