I feel 6 ft is no longer the badge of honour it once was.
and people often comment on my height.
(probably about 187cm)
that's like speaking Gaelic
in feet and inches please!
(Probably about 1877mm or 9 hands)
a baby's hand?
a lady's hand?
one of those foam hands from the movies?
the women who work here are tiny. i'm just above average height for a girl and anything above 6" is quite tall in my eyes. hmmm
Lilliput inc. doing ok?
i'm apparently about average height for men. gr8.
it's alright. kinda wish i was shorter though. i feel MASSIVE in comparison with a lot of women.
just build. i am big boned (that doesn't mean i think i'm fat fyi)
i'm 5'11" and i've always thought that 5'9"ish seems like the PERFECT height
i obviously hang around with too many short people.
I'm 6' 1.5" and I don't feel particularly tall. Everyone seems to be about my height.
Or maybe my back is permanently stooped from talking to you short arses.
^ doesn't work.
I'm way too short to comment.
as per my declaration.
...so to speak. might be different for guys, i dont know, my brother and dad are both about 6'4" and i don't think of them as super tall but anyone who's taller than that i do see as super tall. and i'll comment on it, which is probably annoying, but it's most likely to be just admiration, i mean before i find out they have a girlfriend of 5'4". no respect for those types of couples, it's so wrong
6ft just doesn't seem tall. but anything less than 6ft, even 5ft 11 1/2, well that is just short and unmanly
we are smarter than you because our brains get all the extra oxygen that is just wasted in the long legs and arms of tall people.
but 6'4'' is TALL
everyone is tall to me tho.
Objectively speaking, I think over 6'2" is officially tall. But really, I am such a munchkin that I have to gaze up in awe at anyone who's over 5'4".
I'm officially one inch off being tall, then.
What the hell am I? AVERAGE?
If you were any taller, I'd need to get stilts.
C_C_B BEHAVE! ;)
I'm 6'4" and feel that people who are 6'2" are still pretty tall.
That seems pretty average to me.
I swear I used to be tall compared to other people but I found myself walking behind two pitiuitary cases yesterday and felt so small. The fact there was two of them, obviously friends, made it worse. They were literally Avatar height.
so 6'3"/6'4" ish upwards.
That'd be quite tall.
6'2 or GTFO
...probably in the top 15-20% for men in this country.*
*a made up figure
The average in the UK is 5'10 for a man, 5'4 and half for a woman. But there's another entry too so I don't know which to believe. Neither probably.
I'm guess it's to do with different ethnicities in different regions and that.
The NBA is doin it wrong
I'm 5'11" and a bit. Stupid bit.
Also, don't believe Whiterussian's lies about her height. She is taller than me, so clearly a 6 footer.
come on, guys, you can do better than this.
I wish I was 5'10" though, they're perfectly proportioned, not a lanky streak of piss like me
Professional sumo wrestlers are required to be at least 173 cm (5' 8") tall. Some aspiring sumo athletes have silicone implants added to the tops of their heads to reach the necessary height. The average height for a sumo wrestler is 180 cm, far above the national average in Japan.
how thick IS wall?
Tall Paul is actually 5'5"!!!!
This is either stone cold fact, or I've been hoodwinked for years now
but a friend of mine is six five is he is medically a giant. you can get money off clothes i think.
Doesn't really look like a fair contest either.
Makes things pretty simple in terms of 'height angst': it's difficult to have any, seeing as pretty much every other guy around is taller than me and I've just gotten used to it.
I fear I'd be a mentalist if I towered over people and let a feeling of superiority get to me.
