Hey! 5'7" is tall!

I'm bang on six foot without shoes on. Ellie's 5'10", which I think is the same as John, Paul and George.

Being tall is not all it's cracked up to be. People ask you to reach for things all the time, and you find yourself stooping to look at things and people, and desks are made for people with shorter arms and legs than you, all of which contribue to poor posture, curvature of the spine, and back pain.

I was the "hey, can you get this for me" guy at every restaurant job I held, and for all three g.f.s, none of whom were taller than 5"2" (including the one I married). One of my co-workers jokingly called me the Height Whore, and it was true.

My wife is 5'2 3/4".

Mine is 5'1"

Wow! That's a foot and four inches difference? You're probably used it now, but was is annoying when you met her?

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I'm 5' 11" and Zag is 4' 11".
I may have posted once before that she only comes up to my chin, but it's amazing how quickly she can get there.a-hard-days-night-george-10
Since the rest of her family is also vertically challenged, photos taken at her family gatherings that include me are quite humorous.

Not at all because I was so used to the height disparity in the girls I dated. My first girlfriend was 4'10", my second girlfriend was 5'2", and of my casual dates, only one was above 5'5", so by the time I got to my wife (5'1"), I was long used to the height differential and just accepted that I had a knack for dating girls a foot + shorter than I was. It made for some funny pictures (kinda like what Zig was talking about), but I can never remember it being a problem with anybody. Plus, what vertical challenges my wife has, she didn't pass it down to my son, who just turned 4 and is already the size of a 5 1/2 year old, so he'll probably dwarf me when he reaches his full height potential.

I know that this thread is about our high heights, but what about our low heights? I am thinking here about John Lennon , during those bleak times when he was hiding his love away. He would feel two foot small, which is a pretty low height. And to make matters worse, people stared… and he could hear them laugh.

People can be clowns sometimes.

This is the high height thread and not the low height thread since whatever height you are, you should hold your head high!

According to a height chart, that I saw in a primary school about a month ago it said I was 5'4. When I told my mam, she laughed and said "you sure?"

We can collect everyone's height so we can be prepared to arrange ourselves for a group picture if we all ever get together to do the "listen to all the Beatles songs" marathon.

Ya I agree. Do you think we should have it in both America and England at the same time and do a big projector Skype thing to connect the two events?

What if you are wearing a full body costume would that work?

Then it would be a negotiable rule and its not.

I'm quite short. I'm 157cm which would be 5'2?

Well, I am only 13... I'm not the tallest nor the shortest girl of my class. My parents are not that tall, so I'll probably not be that tall either, but I'm quite happy with my height, but I still want to grow more than 10cm (sorry feet just doesn't work for me)
