Here in Asia even sub 5 foot men aren't all that uncommon. People on the internet think anything under 6'0 is short for men and 5'7 short for women

@ Chris - That’s very true, he’s tall amongst short women too. It is far from unusual for guys to be 5’2” and it sure is cool.

@Sandy Cowell

You should see what a 9 inch difference looks like. It's a very towering effect.

So that is what 6" looks like!

Hmm... That's quite a lot, and I would have thought it to be a little more from the evidence the picture offers. How very interesting!

Dan can have 5ft1.75.

Height scale is saying 5'2, so this guy is for sure 5'2. Rob's eye level looks to be 5'3.8 or thereabouts.

@Gladstone Screwer - That first sentence will make your head spin.

His eye level is 4'9.5 so therefore he is 5'1.5.

Certainly doesn't look over the 5'2" mark.
