Ed Byrne's Height
5ft 9.5in (176.5 cm)
Irish comedian and TV presenter. As a young lad, well, aged 31, he claimed to be "5 feet 10 inches"
. By 2010 however, he seemed to lose a half inch, saying he was now but a mere "5'9" and a half"
. Three years later, though, he seemingly found 3/4 of an inch down the back of his couch, saying
nonchalantly that he was now "a fraction over 5'10" Pretty average."

Well my judgement of heights needs some practice and I am 10 years older than this guy! It doesn't help that people have a false perception of heights caused by all the lying that goes on!
The lying certainly is infectious, and everybody is at it! It makes it so much harder for other people to tell the truth, but I always deal with honest barefoot height like you do. People who have a good honest perception of height can see through the lies anyway!

@ Nik - In actual fact, you have a couple of seriously good points there! This is what I can make of them:
a) Being only 31, he won't be as worldly wise as many, so his judgement of heights needs quite a bit of practice before he can just look at someone and make an accurate guess.
b) He won't have any idea how many guys lie about their height, and if and when he does find out, why should he feel like owning up and making himself seem appreciably smaller than those who lie? Lying is very infectious!

@ Sandy Cowell - Hi there!
Well he is a young lad with him being 31 years of age, he is a full 10 years younger (my autocorrect tried to change it to you gets!) than me! You shouldn't feel rotten at giving him 5'9.25", it's only slightly less than what Rob thinks! I will tell you why he thinks 5'10" is average and that is because of all the 5'8" and 5'9" guys who claim 5'10", people believe their claims and so because they are judged to be average in height to look at then they think that 5'10" is average!

@ Nik - Well, you noticed that he got a far more 'average' 5ft9.25 by claiming that 5ft10 was average! He got his just deserts, though I did feel a bit rotten doing that afterwards! 😉

@ Sandy Cowell - Hi mate!
It's not average, it's darn well above average! I think at 5'9.5" you are a high average so I don't agree with him. I agree that he has a good physique!

5ft10 is a bloody healthy 'average', if indeed, it's average at all! If it is, it's the very tallest average there is!
I think Ed is trying to have us believe that he is a weeny bit bigger than the 5ft9.5 he is, by dismissing 5ft10 as merely average! 5ft10 does sound SO much better, doesn't it?
He gets 5ft9.25! Now that IS more like average in my view! 😛 He has a good physique and maybe on those grounds, a bit more could be believable!
