Taller people have more surface area, thus need more creatine. In turn, they become stronger.

Take two people:

5'5" 130

6'2" 175

(keep in mind these are estimates on average skinny-fat people)
both 15% bodyfat

never lifted a weight in their life.

Who's going to lift more? It's obvious the tall person will out lift the short one due to more overall mass.

I think shorter people since they dont have to move the weight as far.

If both specimens weigh the same then yes the shorter will probably move more.

However, who is more likely to weigh more? Taller People

Joe is 175, 5'4" and looks like he is about to burst at the seams (no bromo), and this is pretty evident through all his stretch marks.

Will the heavier person be more likely to move more weight? Yes

If you don't believe that part about heavier people moving more weight, then I would be glad to recite the record board from my gym or the WNPF.

Go.
Depends on what lift. Bench press I doubt it, but I've heard that deadlifts are easier with people with longer legs/arms.

Mm if I remember correctly from physiology the shorter person is going to have an easier time lifting weight. I forgot the exact physics involved, but I think it has to do with how levers and that stuff work.

This analogy may explain it for you - its like your using a shovel. You have the handle on one end, the force is applied to the other and your other arm is somewhere in between. The closer your other arm is to the load - the easier it will be lift it.

Now translate this to doing curls. The force is applied at your hand, the handle is at your elbow, and "your other hand" is where your brachialis/biceps inserts onto your forearm. Common sense tells me that the longer your arm is, the further away "your other hand" (insertion of muscles) is going to be from the load. i.e. - harder to lift.

This is about as factual - no bull**** speculation I can get.

could you be slurpin on his dick any harder?? come on bro. dudes in good shape but bursting at the seams? maybe if he was 230 and 5'4.. stretch marks affect everyone differently. i know dudes that have horrible stretch marks and arent big at all. difference in skin i suppose.

at the top levels smaller dudes lift more weight lb for lb. obviously more of their lbs are muscle and they dont have to move the weight as far. but yes you are right smaller dudes are smaller to start.

Like you were slurpin your bf's d1 football dick the other day? or how about anytime you goto the gym and you tell us how afterwards you and your BEAST *** lifting partner circle jerked with eachother's sweat?

Sorry, but if you are going to stoop to this weak *** level of trying to insult my sexual orientation I will do so aswell.

I'm going to use Joe because has one of the better physiques of all the regulars, him and JackH, but I have met Joe, so I just use him as an example.

Ok. So we somewhat dismissed builds of average male height's...but what about serious lifters?

How about this:

5'6 at 180
6'5 at 260
Both at very nice body fat levels ~6-8%

Now what? See, in this case, I feel like tall people have more potential to be stronger overall. Filling out the frame is harder, but IF it does indeed get filled out, wouldn't the taller guy lift way more weight due to overall more surface area of muscle? Granted there is still a lot of bone mass, but shouldn't the length of the muscles compensate for this?

lol brah i said we lifted hard. i listed his height and weight and said he had suprisingly strong biceps. you are talking about joes stretch marks and how he looks like hes gonna burst at the seams.. not even close. and i wasnt questioning your sexual orientation just saying you sound pathetic the way you look up to him and talk about him in every post..
