Blimey - I was out 0.25 on the girl and 0.1 on the guy and I don't hit the top 5?

Yeah I was .05 cm high on the man (less than .02 inches) and .3 cm low on the woman (less than .12 inches) and I still barley made the list.
In that case I think Cruise is 5'7.9423333 hahaha
Stiffelio said on 30/Oct/11
Rob, this was a great chalenge and it seems we as a group were pretty good guessers. I was off by just 3mm on average and still didn't make it into the two five. The curious things is I was consistently off in both cases by underestimating their heights vis a vis yours.
[Editor Rob: the 5th place people were 0.35mm out combined, so it was needing to be really close on both to get into the top 5.]
Shaun said on 30/Oct/11
Physics you take these challenges too seriously!! Its meant to be a bit of fun.
Physics Enemy said on 29/Oct/11
Rob, the next height challenge should be Halloween themed. I'm hoping to see you and the challenger dressed up and/or with some facepaint, lol. :-)
[Editor Rob: my face is scary enough, no need to make it even more scarier!]

Damn! Out by 3 mm in girls case n out by light years in boy's
micyficy said on 28/Oct/11
hey, Rob. Do you have two stadiometers? One is blue and the other has black.
[Editor Rob: one side is blue the other black]
John said on 28/Oct/11
Wow Im really bad at this lol. This is embarrassing....disregard my opinion on celebs haha

Shaun says on 28/Oct/11

I wouldn't say she had the "exact same face" as #1 but there is certainly an obvious similarity, but she's darker haired than her sister.

I dont know What the F*ck your talking about because to me their faces are very similar the only thing noticably different between them is their hair and height!
Legend said on 28/Oct/11
How am I not in the top 5? I guessed very close.
[Editor Rob: 4.5 or so mm out in total didn't get a top 5 in this one]
Alex said on 28/Oct/11
Physics, this was a very close one. We're talking a few MMs is all.
Physics Enemy said on 28/Oct/11
Alex - These scores are for the combined man and woman measurements, it wasn't done individually. Individually, I came first with the girl's height. :-) But I was 1.5 mm out with the guy's height.

It's funny, but when Rob rounded to the nearest mm in the other challenges, it detrimentally affected my placing. But in this challenge, he didn't round up for the guy; which stopped me getting 1st place.

I think Rob hates me. :-(

Ka said on 28/Oct/11
Hey Rob I guess 174 cm, how come I wasn't on the top 5. I was off by .05 cm lol
[Editor Rob: oh it's the combined result for both the top 5 that is shown]
Taiwan said on 28/Oct/11
this chellenge is exciting
Alex said on 28/Oct/11
The girl's height was tougher to pin down. In the few pics she looked a smidge shorter or taller
Alex said on 28/Oct/11
Rob, very close challenge but whats the top 5 ranking for the girl height? I see you only have the top 5 for the guy or was it overall for both? Because I was only a MM off with the guy
[Editor Rob: the result is for both together. I can't check as i'm away from computer but a few got her spot on and a few 1mm out.]
Wow said on 28/Oct/11
Challenge 2 guy looks taller than 186,4 cm, more like 189 cm.
Physics Enemy said on 28/Oct/11
It's a shame I missed Challenges 1 & 2, I could have been in 1st place by now if I bothered with them. :-( 20 points from 5 challenges is good going though.
Physics Enemy said on 28/Oct/11
How good was I with the girl, I was absolutely spot on, and explained to a tee why she was EXACTLY the same height as Rob, and how the 2mm discrepancies occurred in the other pics. I was a little generous with the guy though. Thanks Sean, it's good to rack up some points for a change. Sick of 5th!
Josh B said on 28/Oct/11
Hey Rob how come you used 2 different height measuring devises?
[Editor Rob: it.s the same, just one side has blue, the other black markings. ]
LAN Jiao said on 28/Oct/11
thought the guy was shorter than rob and were measure out under 173.. rob's cunning tricks.. lol
Shaun said on 28/Oct/11
Damn I used the first two photographs for assessing in that landscape link Rob, as you can see you look a whisker taller. There is certainly a tiny gap there at the top hence my 172.9cm guess.
Shaun said on 28/Oct/11
So I was 0.4 of a cm out on the girl and 0.15 out on the guy and still didn't get into the top 5. Jeez! I am a little surprised though she was the EXACT same height as you Rob. At the end though I was thinking 173.1 cm range. Well done Tim and to you Physics congrats on your second place!
J.J. said on 28/Oct/11
Rob my first guess was 5'8.45" for the man so where will I have been on the score board?
[Editor Rob: you put the 2 comments very close together but had the 'or' in the first one, 2nd or 3rd was what you were.]
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 28/Oct/11
I was a bit off also this time...lol
Editor Rob said on 28/Oct/11
I posted the result of Click Here #7.

Tim was outright winner at half a mm out on both, which is really bang on.
Quite a few got one right, and the other a few mm out.

The man was just about 174, I called the result as 173.95.
The girl was exactly the same height on the stadiometer as me, 5ft 8.25/173.3.

Thanks to the volunteers and those who guessed.

Overall the average guess for the man was 1mm out and the girl 2.5mm out.

In person the man wasn't sure what he was measured at, he does have a higher eyelevel (about 4.25 inches from what I could see on the stadiometer), I thought he would be near 5ft 8.75.

The girl wasn't sure of her height. In a couple of the photos taken she lowered her eyelevel a fraction, my guess in person was she might measure nearly 5ft 8.5, she had hair braids in the stripe shots.
The shot I used for the challenge was bottom left: From the 4 landscape ones ...I think the bottom one was as perfect as possible for the challenge, although the range guessed for her was from under 171 to as high as 176.

Jenny thought the girl was a bit taller than herself aswell and was surprised she was 5ft 8.25...from the times I've seen the girl her posture is very good and she carries herself well.

The Girl - Pic1: She's standing just infront of Rob, arguably slightly slack posture. Rob appears 2mm taller. Pic2: Rob's dropping a bit of posture. She appears 2mm taller. Pic3: They're side by side, standing tall, equal height.

I was toying with 173.2 or 173.3 for the girl, I took a punt on 173.3.

Shaun said on 27/Oct/11
I think Rob tried to find volunteers as close to his height as possible for this challenge as a tester. And it worked, it certainly is testing us. When they are so close it can give an illusion that one is slightly taller than the other when it could be the other way round. Much more difficult to gauge than a 5'3" or 6'2" standing next to a 5'8".
[Editor Rob: I had thought the closer in height the easier the challenge although this one you might need to be only 4mm out in total for both to get in the top 5, depends how many more add a guess :)]
rob89 said on 27/Oct/11
The guy i'd say is 5'8.7 and the girl exactly on the 5'8 mark.
LAN Jiao said on 27/Oct/11
mr R must be kidding.. the girl could be taller than the guy compare rob yet he leave 170.6 girl and 174.5 guy. lol.. this told us not to trust him of saw 6'4 jared padalecki at at least 6'5 in real he mention, mr R could be often slouch and have lower eye level and weak shoes walking out to look up everybody tallish as he think.lol..

MD said on 26/Oct/11
I don't have a guess for this one, but for the picture with the guy I think this is a PERFECT example of how someone can look average to tallish from the waist up, but a full-body shot reveals them to be a bit under average. The guy is probably only a couple of cm taller than Rob, but if both were pictured alone I'd have put the other guy as being considerably taller because of his build.
Mathew said on 26/Oct/11
Man 174 Woman 173. I have to admit, the posture of each is throwing me a bit.
[Editor Rob: I tell volunteers to stand tall, even holding a cat I'm still standing tall ;)]

Dural said on 26/Oct/11
Her eyelevel is about the same as Rob's but she has a small head so I'd say 173.0cm. He seems slightly taller so 174.4cm although maybe it's his millitary posture.

Physics Enemy said on 26/Oct/11
I wonder whether cat's are taller after they wake up. The cat should become an autograph hound and take pics with Stallone. She can then make all of us, especially Rob, look double the fool. Thousands of pics to prove her height. She can ignore Rob's erroneous 1 ft 6.575" measure 4-5 hours after wake-up.
[Editor Rob: cat's are always trying to grow longer, I catch Sookie doing all these yoga moves every day!]
Lucoso said on 26/Oct/11
he is 174.6 and she is 1,72.9
Shaun said on 26/Oct/11
OK, they are both very close in height but the girl is extremely close. I'm guessing 174.1cm for the guy and 172.9 cm for the girl. I think she might be a hair shorter than Rob but its by mere millimetres. Initial glance she looked 5'7.5" but actually she is extremely close to 5'8" mark if not bang on.
Shaun said on 26/Oct/11
This one is actually the hardest so far. Depending on how you look at them they can both look a smidge taller or a smidge shorter! I'll leave my guess Thursday night as I'm still confused!
Ikbob said on 26/Oct/11
174.6cm for the man
172.9cm for the woman

Physics Enemy says on 25/Oct/11
Rob - Are there points available for each the man and woman, or are you going to take combined measurements? Also, are there bonus points on offer for estimating the length of your cat correctly? :-)
[Editor Rob: Sookie refuses to get measured!

I'll just take the combined difference.

Rob's cat perhaps came from South America and claims to be 1 ft 8 and in reality is 1 ft 6.75...

Lol im always guessing first.

I should wait till one of the guys who always ends up first guesses and copy his guess. Never-mind I would prefer to make the top 5 on my own.

In regards to the height claim by challenge 5 contestant, It happens a lot that ppl tend to say height in shoes. Girls I know sometimes describes me as 5'9" - 5'10" range even though im 5'8" barefoot. 6'2.5 still is tall in my book.

I expect one of the challenges sooner or later where Rob will have a very tall guy say in the 6'5 plus range where it will become even harder to guess

More chance of Rob getting a 4'4" kid to do this than a big proud 6'5" guy who claims 6'7!! Rob when's #7 coming?

Shaun says on 21/Oct/11
Rob how tall did Volunteer #5 claim to be originally? Did he claim 6'3"? or "Six two and a half"?
[Editor Rob: Six one, six two but this was more of a downplay I think since his partner told me he'd said a bit under/almost 6ft 4 before.]

[Editor Rob: Six one, six two but this was more of a downplay I think since his partner told me he'd said a bit under/almost 6ft 4 before.]

Probably to be on the safe side. He'd feel embarrassed if he claimed 6'3" and you measured him at 6'1.5"! Well to me if I passed him in the street and he was wearing shoes I'd probably look at him and guess he was legit 6'3" range. In shoes he'd be between 6'3" and 6'4" anyway.
[Editor Rob: the thing is though he's effectively claiming to his partner to be in 6ft 3 range, but he did downplay when we asked his height just as I was going to measure. I don't think he'd been measured for a long time.]

Physics Enemy said on 21/Oct/11
Rob, is the distance from the middle of your eyes to the top of your head bang on 4.5" then?
[Editor Rob: it depends on the tilt of the head, even a small tilt can add a little or take some away.

in some photos taken by short photographers if I look straight ahead in the photo it can look as though my eyelevel is raised, sometimes if I tilted my head down a fraction towards the photographer it then looks like I'm looking 'level', but the eyelevel would be more than 4.5 if that makes sense...]

To be precise Rob she's a quarter mm over 161.7, but fair enough. More importantly, why isn't Legend on the leaderboard? He guessed better than me.
[Editor Rob: He guessed 161cm first.]

So I was 0.75 mm out then Physics.
Physics Enemy said on 21/Oct/11
I'm surprised she didn't make it to 162 cm, I thought she would, and took a punt on the .05 to try and get first place. How wrong I was. 5th again. :-(

Hey Rob did you count my guess when my name was simply 'jake' for Challenge 1 and when I came 5th?
[Editor Rob: ah, I forgot you added 182, so I will add the extra point which moves you up the leaderboard by 1 position ;)]
Alex said on 21/Oct/11
Rob, she looked about dead on the middle of your eye level which was why I put down 5'3.75. 4.5 inch eye level but she was probably at your lower eye making up about 1/8 inch lower
[Editor Rob: normally eyelevel is around 4.5ish, but a slight tilt up/down can add 1/8th, or the camera can add/take away height.

I think the portrait (vertical) shot added a few mm to the girl's height.]
Alex said on 21/Oct/11
Legend, you would have been in the top 5 if you put your 2nd guess first! Rob only takes the first guess which was 161cm in your case
Physics Enemy said on 21/Oct/11
Ohhh I get it Rob, Legend's first guess was 161 cm. Fair enough.

i knew the challenger would turn out shorter.. lol.. donnoe why i still submit over 162cm. rob always put a tricky volunteer here..
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Oct/11
i did the same mistake with the old one! i thought she was shorter than my guess but i upgraded it because on this site you have a lot of women that look that difference and that you put at 5'4! that should clear your ideas about it! you have a lot of women that look max 160 and you list 5'4, with no reason!

I was way off LOL .
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
Nooo a millimetre out!! I was way out LOL!
Editor Rob said on 21/Oct/11
This was a close challenge, she was a good 161.7cm, you had to be within 4mm to get into that top 5. I put Reality/Sarrazin plus zaq as 1st.

Shaun said on 20/Oct/11
She does look a flat 5'4" in the right photo, true. I think she's got to be somewhere around 162cm. But she's more likely to be 162. something than below my estimate of 161.8 cm I think. She's close to 5'4" likely the lower side of it, if she is above a flat 5'4" I would be very surprised. If I got the hair vs head line wrong though she's definitely on the higher side of the 162cm!! I think some of us are going to be very close on this one though.
Physics Enemy said on 20/Oct/11
161.84 is perhaps possible Legend, 161.85 moreso. 161.83 is miles off.
Shaun said on 20/Oct/11
Rob out of curiosity how much do you measure on tip toes? Would be interesting to see how much height difference between flat feet and max tip toe. Or go on tip toes in your Don's and see how tall you could reach!
[Editor Rob: you can get near 3 inches on big tip toes]
Mathew said on 20/Oct/11
162.4 cm
Gaga-183.2cm-185.1cm said on 20/Oct/11
Another quick guess.....
161cm, i might be quite off, she is tilting her head up and makes it more unaccurate, and i think i am the only one here who guessed her that low.
Legend said on 20/Oct/11
She's 161.83cm
Sarrazin said on 20/Oct/11
161.7cm

miko said on 20/Oct/11
Rob, are you trying to tell us that G tried to sneak a tiptoe when measured? Haha ;)
[Editor Rob: I said to the 3 year old 'you pulling a G', she just nodded 'yeah'.

but then I asked her if she won the lottery and she said yeah aswell.]

Vegas said on 20/Oct/11
she looks to be about a cm taller in the righthand photo

will go with 162.35cm based on that shot seeing as its full length
Physics Enemy said on 20/Oct/11
Glenn is 5' 9" barefoot at night with casual posture. He dosn't tiptoe.
Shaun said on 20/Oct/11
[Editor Rob: actually I said 4 but realised she was 3...when the stadiometer comes out she's the one who wants to get measured more than the adults around! ]

Perhaps she has a future on here!
Tim said on 20/Oct/11
#6: 161.5 cm

ROB! my guess for challenge #6 is 162.5 cm

162.6cm
Shaun said on 19/Oct/11
A G manoevre LOL. Now lots of us here are good at estimating normal range folks between 5' and 6'4" below 5' or even 4' would be extremely challenging. Deducing anything over 12 inches is very hard. If you can get photographs with the 4 year old and stop her from tio toeing that would be a hard challenge. I guess we could use it to gauge Verne Troyer's height should you meet him, although she was probably taller than Verne...

Tip of her head cover rob eye level made her 11.2-11.4cm lower rob height Rob 173.3cm , she gota be 161.9-162.1cm

You're going to have to be very precise with this one Rob, lots of very similar guesses. Even the tiniest rounding will throw off the results massively.

Shaun said on 19/Oct/11
Rob you ought to also try to get some kids to do this as a larger height deficit will really be tough. Get an 8 year old cousin on here or something!
[Editor Rob: true story...was measuring a 4 year old, I told her 'stand tall'.

She pulled a G maneouver and went on her tip toes, pushed the bar up another inch!]

Thought he looked a little taller in MK Conquest.
Paolo Montalban is 6'2 and he looks a good inch or two taller.
