How tall are you? (figures inc.)

Just thought it might be useful in Pasi's studies

... and no cheating, ie no high heels or boots or any footwear whatsoever

So how tall are you

Someone should teach you how to use the Metric System.

Damn it man, how dare you throw us strapping 6 footers in with the miserable little 5 foot eleveners?
Everyone knows 6 foot and up should be a category.

Re: How tall are you? (figures inc.)

@Hugo: the strange thing is that we resist the metric system here and everyone still much talks in feet and miles etc

@Bazza: You have a point It didn't look right when I posted it But you know what people are like, if they are 5 foot 11 inches they are bound to say they are 6ft, especially their mothers

@Selepeed & Hugo: Are you guys shy about your height I have a right to abstain from my poll for a while

Kurzon observation 1 : Maybe I should have made it a private poll for the shy people

Kurzon observation 2 : I thought the average height for a male (at least in the UK) was 5 foot 8/9 inches but the poll shows different for Alfisti. Have I got the average wrong Mind you though, youngsters do seem taller to me nowadays

I am not shy about my height, but I can't tell you how long I am in miles, yards, feet, inches or whatever you use to express length with.

I like compact sizes. It's like fruit, they're more sweet.

Re: How tall are you? (figures inc.)

Trust you to find the gap Debs

... and did you read the bit about no boots

Okay if it's .4 or less then round down, and if it's .5 or above then round up

I think we should, as I thought about that long time ago
BUT will the women say in a public Poll

I doubt it ... and perhaps that should be a private poll.

Pasi, if you like, - I leave that one to you. BUT we in the UK, as silly as we are sometimes , may need a stones and pounds conversion chart or good conversion linky

Re: How tall are you? (figures inc.)

I understand that about the women, even if I don't see how relevant it might show to be. It shouldn't be a problem to anyone.
