Does it help to just put on a bunch of weight? That would take up more space.

Not really, but if growing taller is an option for you, that's a power move.

I've heard derisive remarks her on the AO about elevator shoes for the vertically challenged, but how about stilts?

I do not understand the value of being intimidating. I get not being a pushover but going out of your way to intimidate others isn't that a 'bad' quality?

If you had to face a gorilla, you'd want to be intimidating.

We just bought an inflatable pool and an electric inflator for it. This was supposed to be for the kids, but now that I've read this thread, I plan to use those tools to ensure I take up a lot more space at work.

I'm creative, and I have so many ideas already.
