    Question How Tall Are You?

    I had a weird dream last night involving a cherry, black 1958 Chevy Impala Super Sport, a missing book and two Indians whose height I correctly guessed at 6' 5" (195.58 cm) and 6' 8" (203.2 cm) and for the first time in a long time, I fealt short.

    When I woke up, I found myself wondering if average height is still on the rise.

    At 6' (182.88 cm) I'm not overly tall, but I was always one of the taller kids in school. Wayne Twitchell was a lot taller and ended up playing baseball for the Canadians instead of basketball. And Gloria Gardner was taller than everyone.

    My best friend Jim was one of the shortest kids until he was about 18 and bested me by an inch. One of my step-fathers didn't begin to get his height until he was over 20!

    Height has its' advantages. You usually have a clear view of parades. And disadvantages. It's difficult to look inconspicuous when volunteers are called for.

    My grandmother was 4' 11" (149.86 cm) and my grandfather was 6' 2" (187.96 cm). I never saw them dance.

    I thought it would be interesting to see how tall SitePointers are and what stories you have to share about height.

    I know some of you are still growing, so the results aren't final.

    Convert cm --> inch and inch --> cm

    I'm about 6' 1" although I haven't been measured for a while. Pretty sure I've stopped growing now

    I am 6' 6" give or take a little. I am almost the tallest wherever I tend to go, so I am used to having people look up to me .

    I refuse to participate in this poll because there is no 5' 11 3/5" option. No Sir, you won't get my vote.

    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.
