    I have a friend who is a doctor. He said that invariably the one thing all men lie about is their height. According to him, men usually add two inches.

    As for my height, on a good day with low atmospheric pressure, I can just scrape out 5'8"..

    Between 6'0 and 6'1, somehow I look taller. Most people think I'm taller.

    I thought women lied about their height. Are you sure he didn't say WOmen?

    Men lie about a different dimension.

    The Netherlands are inhabited by giants. I felt like a midget there. I used to dance (Argentine) Tango, and one partner I had was a Dutch woman, 5'11", who was so strong sometime I felt like she was leading. She said that in the region she was from, she was considered short. Didn't believe her until I met her 6'5" fiance. And not just tall and skinny either.

    montecristo, I'm positive it's men, in fact he said he gets a kick out of asking men for their vitals first and then asking them to get on the scale to show them that they lied. I think women would be more apt to lie about their weight, I'll have to ask him about that... linux_pro, I thought I read somewhere you were a math major, according to him, you would really be 5'7" For those of us on the less 'vertically endowed' side, I have just discovered the AE MacNeil which has a thicker sole than most shoes. They're somewhat height-enhancing for those of us that can use it [​IMG]

    I guess what I mean was, I could start telling you guys I'm actually 5'11".

    I'm actually 6'2" and on a dry day my hair makes me 6'3".


    Makes for an unobstructed view of Tokyo.

    Looks like our Bell curve is starting to take shape.

    Even if there are a lot of abnormally short people. Although I bet if we added more choices under 5'7" or whatever, it would be distributed a bit more thinly at that end.

    Yeah, the Dutch are freaking tall.... I am 5'9, which is about average for the US, but after living in Amsterdam for the past 3 years I feel like a midget.

    Guess its all the dairy... or maybe it's the Heineken.



    Hope it's the Heineken...

    I just want to bump this up and hope to get a glimpse on the height demographic here.
