How tall are you?


#41

Same. I topped out at 5’11.5 but it sounds dumb to say 11 and half inches. I just want people to know I almost made six feet!

Somehow I managed to be the runt in my family. I have a brother who is 6’3". My dad was 6’1". I have a son who is 6’4" and two other sons who are 6’1", and my daughter is 5’10.5". Yet I was the one who loved playing basketball! I needed those extra inches!


#42

To be fair, my bad habits (and other non-height-related genetics) are going to have a lot more to do with my ultimate demise than my height.


#43

Heheehehehehehehehehehehehehehe


#44

I’m 6’1’’ standing up and quite a bit shorter if I’m lying down.


#45

6’ more or less. Next doctor’s appt. I’ll ask him to check. See if I shrunk at all.


#46

Kinda the same for me. I have a brother 6’3" and another 6’1". I had a procedure when I was 12 that pretty much slowed my growth down. But it’s cool cause I always have had a thing for short women. :)


#47

6 foot exactly


#48

Just a hair over 5’10".


#49

My height depends on whose foot you are measuring against.


#50

You are 6’0” live a little and round up.


#51

Anecdotally, my GF is tall for a woman at 5’8" and she was previously married to a guy who was also 5’8", so she enjoys telling me I’m tall at 5’11" and I enjoy telling her she’s a tiny thing compared to me at 5’8". Just a fun thing.


#52

185cm.

6 foot something or other? I don’t know.

It would be nice if reaching up to grab high objects for old ladies at the shopping centre will buy us karma points that we can spend to live longer.


#53

193 cm. Which is what, 6,3ft? I’m not sure, seeing upthread that 1.86 is 6.1ft while 197 cm is apparently 5.87ft. Someone must be wrong there…


#54

Absolutely the same. Spinal disc drying is not kidding around, here. Comes bundled with medieval torture levels of pain.
I should have been taller, but I stopped sleeping in middle school, which is why I am guessing I was stuck at that height since my 14 — alongside with disproportionnate 28cm feet.


#55

5’ 10", or at least I used to be. My mom was like 5’ 2" and dad close to 5’ 6".


#56

189 cm - or 6’2" silly imperial (according to Google calculator)


#57

I’m exactly 6’ or 183cm last time I checked.


#58

5’8", which has always been good enough for me, except when playing basketball. (Short soccer players have always been fine, and flag football ends up with a lot of gritty short white slot receiver references, especially here around Boston.)


#59

I performed well in the two high school sports that matched a shorter stature: track and wrestling. It played to my advantages, for sure. In one, it takes a lot of energy to move a bigger body, quickly, in short distances. In the other, you’re literally matched with people your weight, and a smaller body at a given weight usually has a more powerful muscle structure. Leverage comes into play, but there is a lot to be said for sports that cater to smaller people.


#60

I’m 5’7" and a bit, because when I had hair I was easily a bit over 5’8" …

Two of my long term girlfriends independantly called me their ‘little man’, which I don’t think only refers to my height as much as that my build is athletic and therefore very proportional, like I was a perfect specimen, scaled down. I’m not sure I was especially flattered. They were both shorter than me, to add to it.

I’ve always done really well in soccer and hockey, but although I loved volleyball and was generally very good at it technically, boy did I suffer at the net. I could dig and get under the ball more ably than most, though. But basketball, man, screw that sport.
