In terms of rarity, the difference between 6’3 and 6’6 is significant. I’ll see a 6’3 guy just about every day, but can go weeks without seeing a legit 6’6+ guy.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Oct/19
@ Sean - Please don't speak about Bobby like that. Of course he is the height he says he is and just because you're 8" taller doesn't make you a better person. I have been writing to him for some time now and he has intelligence way beyond his years. I have just checked out his blog and subscribed. He has triggered interests in me that to date have been lying dormant.

He must think arguments about height extremely trivial.

He is one of two people who, since I've been coming here, has had me reaching for the dictionary.

Greg said on 25/Oct/19
@Sean198cm It’s sad really you have to resort to disrespect when you know you can’t win a logical argument. That being said Bobby measures 5’10 earlier in the day and 5’10.5 out of bed, please explain to me how on earth he’s not 5’10? So what is he 6’3? Or 5’2 let me know because I must not know how to calculate properly since you’re such a brainiac here. 1 Point to Bobby. Wow he has the height and the brains or perhaps the lack of both... I don’t understand why every other tall person rides their high horse? As if you worked or did something for your height. It’s nothing but genetics. Plus you do realize most guys don’t want to be 6’5+ no offense to Christian or Canson since he’s close plus I have respect for those posters and a few others. But in terms of height preferences 6’2 is desirable and 6’3 is the last height according to dating pool based on height surveys where after 6’2 it slowly falls off so 6’4 is less desirable and yes it is a word maybe if you received an education you’d know 🤯. You have way too many draw backs from being 6’6 like back problems, ducking under doorways, not being able to ride in certain cars, trouble finding clothes and more. Besides you’re going to shrink like crazy when you get old so karma is a bish innit? He is above average and he doesn’t do any of that nonsense better tone it down before you get into Robs special corner. No need to try to bully everyone on this forum.

@Sean198 - Now you're just acting dumb. A guy who wakes up at 5'10.5" and goes down to 5'9.75" at his low is a classic 5'10" man and a 5'10" man in america should feel above average. In Canada where the average is under 5'9" he should even feel tallish like a 5'10"/5'11" guy in the US.

@ Sean 198cm

Blimey, you're a tall one, aren't you? Diserable is, of course, an incorrectly spelt word, but before Samuel Johnson's dictionary was published in the mid 18th Century, there were no hard and fast rules to the spelling of any word, and people spelt away howsoever they chose to! It can't be easy for historians to make sense of those long historical scripts they find, but I suppose they get used to it!

Cheers Sean 😁👍

@Rob Paul

This debacle with Sean is getting out of hand and I am genuinely feeling harassed by him now. Especially over a trivial matter as a round-up from a low. So, if you can perhaps intervene, it'd be greatly appreciated. I'm tired of going back and forth with this guy, and it's clear we've got very different definitions, so we'll never see eye to eye about matters. To avoid this from becoming a shouting match, I think Sean needs a timeout from CelebHeights so he can cool off and think about what he's doing. As you know from monitoring my use of CelebHeights since I began using the site in 2016/2017 or so, I have never once provoked or attempted to lead users into heated debates. I have tried to maintain a decorum of respect with users and all I ask in return is that I will be given the same treatment in return. Instead what I get is users like Sean, and Arthur in the past, giving me beef over claiming a height I actually measure barefoot. Yes, I did have my spat with Canson in the past, but that's water under the bridge now, and I don't hold any ill feelings towards him.

Sean has proven to be disrespectful and even rude. He is passive-aggressive. You will note that he belittles ajax509 over his spelling, a common human error in every one of us. He also has the audacity to passively refer to LittleLee as small by typing, "username checks out", not to mention that he has called me delusional several times now. You will note that I only ever retaliate to similar insults when I have been insulted first. So, you can rest assured that I didn't pull the proverbial trigger. It was Sean who did that. I am just standing up for myself and am the victim here. I am certain that Sean will have his own defences but he needs to realize that he isn't the site master, you are. If you have not called attention to my height claim then he shouldn't either.

I hope my words have persuaded you in this matter Rob, and I trust you will make the right judgement in the end.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 You're pathetic, you know that? "You're not even 5'10." Boo boo for you. I am 5'10. I'm almost 5'11 in the morning, how could I not be a 5'10 guy? You're a pedantic idiot. That's what you are. A plague on all of CelebHeights. It looks like that stature is cutting off the oxygen to your brain because your theories are far reaching.

Fact: You don't live in Toronto, I do.

Fact: I am a 1/4 under 5'10 at a low. But in your La La Land that's a big difference.

Fact: You are an idiot.

Now piss off and leave me alone. You're harassing me.

@Canson
Yeah and now c-mo says that 177.2-177.5 is more 178 than it is 177, lél.
They are using the pedantic excuse just to boost a little their ego by disguising a desperate lie and willful inaccuracy as the truth. If the truth doesn't conform to their subjective distorted view of "rounding", they just can't accept it, as it would automatically force them to realize how far they've traveled from the truth, just to seemingly make real their wish of actually being the next, more desirable mark.
But i understand that sometimes it can be hard to accept the truth, so let's hope that in their case wisdom has time on it's side for that.

I wouldn't class 5'10" as being above average either, thats more 5'11" even in the US and UK.

5'9" is lower average and 5'10" upper average with 5'9.5" being the overall, thats the way I see it going by the stats.

5'8" is under average and 5'11" over average. 5'7" starts short and 6'0 starts tall.

No, simply no, Bobby's 1.24cm shorter than you (180.34 - 179.1), so just under half an inch. 5ft 9.75 Bobby, 5ft 10.5 Greg would throw of things (stretch the truth).

@Bobby @Greg Remember, I'm on your side guys - no problem with 5'10 respectively 5'10.5!

@Canson . everybody has the right to claim what they want but a guy who is lets say 5'11.1 in the morning and 5'10.2 in the evening if he claims 5'10 instead of 5'10.5 that is his own decision and he can do it ...I will just tell such a guy that he should claim 5'10.5 in MY opinion .....if he doesnt want to that will be ok with me . BUT what would be actually idiotic is if that guy would force others do round down as he does

the whole discussion about bobby and some people here almost harrassing him only because he has 178cm in his nickname is just utterly ridiculous to say the least .

and bobby doesnt even claim a height that he isnt . he is 179.1cm in the morning (thanks for correcting me ajax) and 177.2cm in the evening . so a 5'10 guy . 178cm is actually the most reasonable claim for him regarding his range . and he is 177.5cm even in the afternoon after being awake several hours .

in real life so many men claim heights taller than they are but bobby gets called out for claiming a height that he actualky measures ? . thats weird af . a guy whose range is 179.1 - 177.2 getting s**t for claiming 178 is another level of being pedantic and annoying .

on top of it bobby even says that he falls to 177.2 and we all know . it is not as if he would have hidden it or anything

it's just silly and also unnecessary . "omg he is 177.5 in the afternoon and 177.2 in the evening but has 178cm in his nickname . call the height police " .....seriously ....just lol

Ok understood. And I respect your opinion But why do you only point this out for people claiming higher than their low and you get on those who round down is my whole point? I remember someone once being 5’10.67 or something and you made a big deal because they chose to claim 5’10.5. You also said people who round down are autistic? Again not starting anything here but it’s clear that you do that. At least if that’s the case if you’re going to be demonstrative with Bobby’s case then be consistent with someone else who is opposite. And Myself and Sean198 are just stating facts which is that Rob bases his heights on afternoon. I don’t see them picking on Bobby. They’re stating facts. Would you still be defending Bobby the way that you are if he were 5’9.75 claiming 5’9.5? Probably not. And Rob is 5’8 1/8 at a normal low and that’s what he considers his height. So Bobby can claim what he wants (as can you or I etc) but that’s what the site is based on. The premise is because Rob said if you claim a height in your nickname you should be able to measure it.

@Bobby 178cm:

Sean 198cm is being a total dick, and I'm not trying to defend him by any means, but 6'6 or at least 6'5.5-6'6 is really not a bad height. Yes it's not exactly ideal, but there really aren't many downsides apart from clothing or legroom in certain vehicles. From personal experience, heights in the 6'3-6'6 range are really not that different from each other. 6'7+ and especially 6'8+ is a different ballgame, as Canson said below, but up until that point, it's really not bad. If you magically became 6'5 3/4 one night, I'm sure you'd learn to enjoy it. And if I shrunk down to your height, I'd learn to like it as well. My point is that there are upsides and downsides to every height, and unless you're talking extreme outliers like

@ajax509: diserable? Is that even a word?

@Littlelee5ft6: username checks out

@Bobby: You're not even 5'10. Don't give me that percentile BS. It's just coping and you know it. You are not above average. You're 0.1 standard deviations away from average. What do you mean you're approaching 70th percentile in shoes? Shoes aren't a part of your body lmao.

You're probably one of those guys who walks around on his tippy toes with his eye level tilted way up to feel taller. I'm betting that a lot of the people you think you are taller than are actually your height or up to an inch taller than you. If you truly think you're above average at your size, and you don't live in dwarf land, you're overestimating yourself and/or underestimating the people around you. It's all just a coping mechanism.

I honestly do feel bad for you Bobby. I've never had to be self conscious about my height, as I was lucky to be blessed with a very tall stature. I truly hope that you grow another cm or two just so you feel better about yourself and don't have to trick yourself into believing that you're in any way special or above average.
Greg said on 24/Oct/19
@ajax509, Wouldn’t call it beef because I heard Arthur’s a vegan. He’s so full of himself Greek Pride and all he doesn’t even know his own measurements. Either he has a heavy spine or he isn’t as tall as he claims he mentioned dropping to a flat 5’10 before whether it’s how extreme low or not so that would mean we would be the same height regardless but I think he isn’t as tall as he says everytime I ask him for proof he never once showed anything except a sketchy photo where he’s standing poorly but I calculated that if he was to straighten out he wouldn’t really be taller than myself he actually looked low average in that photo. Poor Arthur he lost his crown to his 5’9.5 stature. I think Bobby would agree with me as he is a big not so little boy.

Canson said on 23/Oct/19
@Bobby: that’s the height I do consider tho is late morning early afternoon which is about 5 hours out of bed. That’s about where you would measure 5’9 7/8. I think at your height 5’10” is fine to claim for sure because you’d be 1/4” under the mark at a low. Or even about 5’10” would still get the gist to people that you’re either slightly under over or that you are that mark. I say about 6’4” but that’s being over the mark in my case by about 1/4”. I use the afternoon which is 1/8” below the midday

@Sean: Bobby is still above average. Even C-Mo is probably still somewhere around the mark but slightly above average since average for a male is probably 5’8-5’9 range and he’s 5’9.2 afternoon height. Greg is above average more so than they are. As for me, I would keep my height as opposed to being that height or being sub 6’0”. The only height I would take over mine that is shorter is to be a solid 6’4” at a low or maybe Myself’s height where I fall just a hair under. But That’s only talking 1/4 maybe 3/8 where he is. But if it came to being taller say 6’5” or 6’6” the question becomes tougher to answer. I’d take 6’2 or 6’3 over being any taller than I am now. 6’1” maybe. After that probably 6’5” but that’s as high as I’d go unless it’s something like 6’7” vs 5’7”. If we are talking a height like Bobby or Greg I would take 5’10” over being 6’7”. 6’7” is way too tall imo as I’d hit my head on doorways. I used to think 6’6” was too much but At least at your height you won’t always hit doorways if you wear 1” shoes even 1.25” unless very early in the day.

@Sean 198cm

Haha, nice try bunky Bronko but no dice. I am not towered by half the guys I come across LOL. My height, even at a normal low, places me in the strong 60s percentile, like 65. Regularly, I maintain a percentile closer to 67 though, so approaching 70, and in shoes, I am at least in the 70 percentile or a fraction higher.

And nice try by resorting to your physicality but if you expect me to feel jealous by a guy who's only got his height going for him, then you've got another thing coming. I certainly don't feel short at 5'10 and have never been called short at all even by guys who are 6'4, so you need to revaluate your definitions haha.

You clearly don't know what the average height in Toronto is either because I regularly feel above average here and no, that's not all in my head. That's an observation. Even on campus, I feel above average, so you need to try really hard if you think you're gonna make me feel bad. I don't care how tall you are personally because you're way past the height ideal which in my opinion is 191cm/6'3.25 at the cutoff.

Now you're gonna go back to thinking I'm delusional, but remember, you're a clown and people laugh at clowns. And I don't care if Greg edges me out, half an inch isn't a big difference.

Have a miserable, pedantic life. It's a good way to have anxiety. I'll stick to my 178cm claim, it's a valid measurement after all. You can go back to therapy though, you have an addiction to height that borders on fractions.

@Myself: well said and I agree! I don’t think Bobby is necessarily being that way. But some of the others here making comments like “idiotic” etc. it’s funny that they get upset when the rules don’t favor them or that someone is “autistic” for rounding down. These are some of the same people who berated someone who was 5’10.67 for not saying 5’11” before and that person preferred claiming 5’10.5”. I didn’t see any problem saying that person’s claim was an issue even tho he was a weak 5’11” by site standards but because he rounds down it was? That’s my issue. We need consistency

"Personally, you're way too tall and I'd hate to be your height."

Yeah, it's absolutely horrible man. What's even worse is that I'm muscular and have a broad frame. Yeah it sucks being an imposing presence. I wish I was 177cm instead, it must be so fun to be towered by half the guys you come across. In all seriousness, I can't imagine what it's like to be your height. I see guys taller than me every now and then and it's weird, but in your case they'd make you look like a 10 year old. I guess I would too haha. I just realized that I was your exact height when I turned 13.

I wonder if Canson/Christian/Junior/Sotiris/Myself/Ellis/Jdubbz and all the other 6'4+ guys here would rather be their current height or yours. Now that I think about it, I can see why you're so defensive. At least if you were a strong 5'10/weak 5'11 like Greg you'd be above average and at a pretty respectable height. But you came just short of the mark lmao. Typing "Bobby 178cm/Bobby 1.78m" over and over again doesn't make it true. I guess in your delusional mind it does, though.
Bobby 1.78m said on 22/Oct/19
@Canson

I don't think ignoring or not consideratng morning height makes it invalid. It doesn't change what a person measures out of bed. It should still be taken into account and most people probably claim a late morning measurement or early afternoon measurement.

Sean 198cm said on 22/Oct/19
@Greg:

I just think that for a site like this, it's better to be honest and go with an afternoon or evening height for the sake of comparison. So if you have a couple of posters with the same claim, you know they're the same height and you don't have to worry about whether it's a morning height, out of bed, extreme low, or whatever. I couldn't care less what he claims irl. That's all I was trying to say, but yeah in hindsight I can see that this exchange was a bit unnecessary. As for my size, I'm 198cm or a mm under at my low. So like 6'5.9-6'6; basically 6'6 flat. I know it may seem like I'm being insensitive since I'm really tall and I'm contesting the claim of an average height guy like Bobby, but like I said before it's just because I think claims should be consistent on this site. And as far as I know, most people claim afternoon or night heights rather than morning or late morning Myself probably has the same idea. I had no idea that Arthur was a known troll; this is the first time I've seen him.

Even claiming to be a LEGIT 6'4 with that low and with his same confidence, would be kinda laughable.

he wakes at 179cm or so and is 177.2cm in the evening . thats a 5'10 guy

Greg said on 19/Oct/19
Hey Rob how tall do you think a legit/strong 5’10 guy wakes up at on average? I think some people lose more and others less?

@Greg: to me I’d say the cutoff for legit is maybe 5’9 7/8 so 5’10” flat after 5 hours perhaps.most don’t consider 1/8” less but i would consider it. Meaning on average 5’10 5/8 or .75 out of bed. For a strong 5’10” probably a bit less than where you wake up. Maybe 5’10 7/8 would be the lowest out of bed to 5’11 1/8 maybe.
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
@Bobby: 5’10” flat sounds pretty accurate for 2 hours out of bed for you. I’m half inch lower after 2 hours too.
Greg said on 21/Oct/19
185cmJeff Ah fair mate, glad to hear you’re doing good. I been alright ya know I can relate to needing a break. Pretty much still talk to everybody in the group apart from Connor. He’s basically fine with everyone but myself 😂 for some odd reason oh well. Yeah nice chatting with you anytime you want to come back feel free.
Greg said on 21/Oct/19
@c-mo Well afterall we are taking about the same guy who goes to the dinner table and immediately locks eyes with you, after some intense eye contact he proceeds to make a statement “oh and by the way did you know I’m 1/8th of an inch taller than you” he raises one eye brow and makes sure to give the most intense look possible after all his hair folicules depend on it. Then afterwards he proceeds to realize is actually an inch and a half shorter than his claimed height. After that awkward bout he sits back down and finishes his height enhancing mashed potatoes that have a special serum. Legend says he’s still trying to complete his Bobby Shrine, soon you will have Sean and Myself phoning him asking for the rare relics of Greek Antiques.
Greg said on 21/Oct/19
@Myself Yeah I know how metric system works in Russia is they use the same thing cm instead of inches so I get it just don’t see the need to beat somebody up over slight rounding it’s not a big issue 👍.
Tarinator 6'1.5" or 187 cm said on 21/Oct/19
I am around 6'1.5" (I grew a little; maybe one inch). I remember meeting some 178 cm range folks some time this year and they seem to be a little shorter than me. Maybe by 2 or 3 inches. I seem to be growing a bit from when I last saw them. I remember showing you a picture of me with my dad and I seemed to be 4-5 inches taller (in late 2017). But now I am 5.5-6.25" taller than my dad (who is 5'7.25" now and 57.75-8" peak). I was much bulkier last year but now that I took more proper care of my diet I am losing weight and am decompressing my spine to look one inch taller and maybe grow a little in height.I would guess you at 5'8 5/8" but I doubt you are any taller than 5'9" (even in the morning). I am probably maybe 5" taller than you but that is about it. Maybe 4" minimum (6'0.25"). Like I said, depending on the moon cycles my height tends to fluctuate by 1 inch. For some reason I seem shorter than 6'0" guys by 1 or 2 inches but when I measure myself I am over 6'0" tall. Strange yet interesting phenomenon, isn't it?
ajax509 said on 21/Oct/19
IMO Bobby should continue to claim 5ft 10. In an NFL Draft, he could potentially measure 5ft 10⅛ late morning.

@Bobby @Editor
What about 'Bobby 5ft 10' instead of 'Bobby 5ft 10 (178cm)' ?

@Sean

That's literally legit means LOL. If you take care to read any of Rob's comments about height measurements then he certifies that any measurement of the day is an objective representation of your height at that moment. So, I'm really not making anything up or being in denial by proclaiming I am a legit 178cm. And that's fine with what you're saying. Personally, you're way too tall and I'd hate to be your height. I'd be fine being a solid 6'0 at a low. Greg also happens to fall 3/4s short of the mark at his low, but I guarantee you if he measured 5'10.75 at a low, he'd consider himself a legit 5'11 because let's face the music. No one outside of CelebHeights cares if you're a 1/4 under your height claim. Also, whether he considers himself legit or not is irrelevant, he knows how tall he is and I know how tall I am. It's not a pure delusion or whatever else you may be thinking. You're just finding petty to be pedantic over. There's no standard of this website that says your nickname has to represent your evening height or whatever else. I doubt Rob even cares that I claim 178cm lol. I'm not Big G and claiming fake inches. As I said, I think anything you measure throughout the day is a fair game to claim. Arthur and Myself are only subjectively correct, not objectively correct. You can whine and moan how much you want, but it doesn't change that I do measure 178cm barefoot and can freely say I am a valid 178cm guy. So, in the words of Biff Tannen, why don't you make like a tree and leave?
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
@Myself: I don’t think Bobby is necessarily being pedantic. He’s looking at if the way someone would outside of the site. But for site purposes yes he’s weak 5’10”. But I think the same way as you outside of here. I never even consider what I or someone else can measure out of bed. I always look at the end result. I don’t even bring it up outside of here. The morning etc is an excuse to make someone taller if you ask me. If I measure someone who claims 6’0” and they’re 5’11.5 or 5’11.25 then they aren’t 6’0” because if the measurement reflects it then that’s what they are. Sure 5’11.5 can round up half is right in the middle and 1/4” is closer to 5’11”. But Outside of this site he’s probably not going to get denied a 5’10” claim. I know from first hand experience that when I used to claim 6’4.5 because I was measured around that mark likely 6’4 3/8 or 1/3” I used to get called 6’5” often. People have a harder time with telling someone that they’re shorter than they are for some reason. They think making them taller is better which is sad. I stopped rounding because I only measure 6’4.25” at a low and I’ve always considered myself 6’4” over 6’5”. I never have claimed 6’5” except when I played basketball and rounded up. Not to mention Bobby at 5’9.75 he would round up to 5’10” naturally. As far as the CM claim that’s a different story
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
@Sean198: I agree with your classifications for what you listed and it’s the exact same way I view it.

.5-.75 range at a low = weak
.25-.5 range at a low = strong

Lol, because that's literally what you are. Pedantic. Especially over trifle details. A person can claim whatever they measure throughout the day, it's all fair game. If I want to put 178cm in my nickname and claim it with all proudness, you can't stop me. I've got personal agency. You do know what that is, right? It means I am capable of thinking for myself and making my own choices. So bugger off. Go bother Flinstone or something.

Greg has admitted to falling to a flat 5'10 at his extreme low yet he consantly claims he is about 5'11 lol. I edge him out by at least a quarter, since I wake up at 5'11.25 nowadays with a good night's sleep, and hover around 5'10 3/8 at my low. He also admitted to overmeasuring a bit in the past, so it's safe to say our tiny shouldered body builder is shorter than me. I bet I'd look like his dad next to him, since I edge him out xD
Greg said on 20/Oct/19
@Sean 198cm Well the thing is of course I’m not a legit 5’11, I would probably not even be considered a weak 5’11 by the sites standards, so I say weakish 5’11/ strong 5’10 border line which is 5’10.5. But in reality nobody is really going around asking “ are you a legit this ?” Unless they are taking about someone who is inflating their height. I think Bobby isn’t desperate to add a cm to be fair. He knows he isn’t a legit 5’10. I just don’t think there’s a need to start commotion over 1/4th of an inch. Sure it would be cool if he put “178 early afternoon” or after but does he need to? Not really man. Of course you don’t want to add a cm you’re like a weak 6’6 or strong 6’5 whatever for Christ’s sake. Theoretically speaking how much taller would a guy your size want to be? You’re already a tower. Unless you want to dwarf everyone possible then pull an AndrewV and make custom elevator lifts that bring you up to nearly 6ft 10, you could audition for the role of Goliath! I think this argument is redundant and needs to be dropped. And don’t even mention Arthur he’s a troll and isn’t even an active poster his opinion isn’t taken as seriously..
Myself said on 20/Oct/19
@Sean
It's useless, dude, don't waste time on him; he's just gonna use the "pedantic" excuse, since he's not able to acknowledge the fact that 177.2, his objectively real height, is mathematically farther from 178 than it is from 177.

@Greg
We don't use imperial system in Europe, so if we are talking in metric:
192.0-192.4 ≠ 193; 177.0-177.4 ≠ 178
If you are 5 to 3 mm below the mark at your low, you would be classified as weak (Me for example, at 192.7), but still entitled to claim it, while if you are more than 5 mm away from the mark, then you aren't really entitled to claim it, if we are talking about objectively valid and mathematically accurate claims, which is the basis for this site, as seen by Rob's own example.
The context matters.

Sean 198cm said on 20/Oct/19
@Bobby

You're either ignorant or just willfully ignoring the height standards of this website. Legit does not just mean that you are capable of measuring it. I'm not a legit 2 meter tall guy just because I measure around that mark out of bed. Weak 5'10 = 5'9.5-5'9.75 at a low (This is you). Legit 5'10 = 5'10 at low. Strong 5'10 = 5'10.25-5'10.5 at low (someone like Greg). A legit 178cm would be around 5'10 1/8 at a low, let alone below 5'10. It's really not complicated. No one is giving you $hit because you claim 5'10, but because you're so adamant about being a legit 178cm for some reason. If you measure 5'9.75 or 5'9.6 or whatever at any point in the day, extreme low or otherwise, you are NOT a legit 178cm. I may be a "clown", but at least I'm not desperately trying to add a cm to my height. At least a guy like Greg who is a strong 5'10 by this site's standards acknowledges that he's not a legit 5'11 or whatever. In your case it's just pure delusion. Arthur and Myself are absolutely correct.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Oct/19
@ Rob - We kept Guinea pigs, hamsters and rabbits in our infants' school, but rarely have I seen any gerbils. I think they are of a blackish brown colour and bigger than mice, but smaller than the average rat. One thing's for sure, my chances of correctly picking one out in a rodent parade would be 50/50 at best.

I have kept show mice though. They were vicious little buggers and picked on the red one. It's a fact that red/ginger animals are natural targets in the animal kingdom, and are even stung more often by bees and wasps because they stand out. I read once that ginger cats could be extinct in 100 years from the time of reading that, but come on now! There are far too many cat fanciers among the human population for that to risk happening. Besides, cats live rent-free and get full board gratis with us humans, and in rehoming centres, the least popular are black and black-and-white cats. Gingers, followed closely by tabbies and tortoiseshells, get snapped up quickly, and are arguably the most popular moggie colour when a preference is expressed by potential cat 'guardians'.

My pet rat, named Rat, was tame and friendly and never bit me once. He was fawn and white, and I trusted him implicitly to run around on the bed and sleep with me - when I was on my own. Maybe it's because he was a single pet, who knows, but when kitten Geranium the First came along, Rat had to be rehomed for his own safety.

IN LOVING MEMORY:-

Today is a very sad day in the Cowell household, Two years ago today, Manelia the Second, my faithful and devoted friend, was run over and killed. 💔 I will never forget her. I thought of her when, 4 months later, I had my hip surgery. I felt she was holding my hand with her little white paw as I was wheeled in, visibly shaking. Her sister, Livielia, and Auntie Cordercelia are still alive and thriving, thankfully.

RIP Manelia The Second

Unless rodents are unusually large, or of the jumping variety, they don't freak me out, but once when I was down Old Street underground station, I saw what can only be described as a whirlwind of many mice, and I was half in awe and half scared witless! It was a mini tornado of mice and they were whirring round and lifted clean off the ground!

I felt quite sorry for them! 🤤

@!Arthur ah I see you crawled out from under your rock at the perfect moment. How’s the formula? You make any cracks in the fountain of youth lately? Bobby is fine with saying he’s 178cm in fact I think he should say it more to rustle propels jimmies 😏. That’s what gets everybody going, also he hasn’t measured that even in a while an extreme low isn’t what you measure all the time. Also why is it that your height changeds? Are you a shape shifter or a lizard person I don’t understand. You where trying to brag about supposedly being 1/8th of an inch taller than me? Which you even aren’t you never provided proof of your height outside of a sketchy photo with an unknown band member which got removed lol I think I would have the edge on you, not that it matters but in Arthur’s Big Bad World it does. By the way nothing wrong with being 5’9 not much of a difference from 5’10. Smh at you. I’ll see you in a few months brother.
Greg said on 17/Oct/19
@Myself to be fair I don’t blame Bobby for standing his ground, I’m backing him up because him and I are good friends. Now I don’t think it’s fair what you are saying about him trying to turn me against you guys. I’m not against anyone lol, twisting his words there brother. You’re right he’s not a legit 5’10, but who cares? He never said he was he says he considers himself more or less 5’10, outside of celeb heights there’s really no Terminator going around scanning your stats in relation to your claim and saying “oh no you’re not 5’10 you’re 5’9.85677777^5 LOL” I think this needs to stop unless you both want to contribute to a new Bible of the Greek Demigods height, the catch is you have to donate a small fee of your choice per page so let’s hope it’s not a lengthy book otherwise you will go broke by the end of the week 😉. Now I’ll tell repeat it again. On here I claim 5’10.5 or almost 5’11 whatever. Outside of celeb heights I’m usually guessed between 5’11-6’0 even by guys who are said heights. So nobody is going to dispute my claim the only time I get called out is for supposedly “downgrading” myself by boosters. So they will say no way you’re taller! Because they like to think of themselves as taller. I get it that here we try to be exact by no need to literally put him under the snipers dot over rounding up 1/4th of an inch. Uh oh you’re charging him for a crime for having 178cm in his nick. Well guess what? Better have a good lawyer because I heard Big G stepped into the Lawyer firm and is handing all cases on celebheights; handpicked and appointed by the Magnificent Rob Paul himself. Now with that being said dude are you forreal? You didn’t want to claim 6’4 when you where 6’3.5-6’3.75” at a low? Oh how dare you?! You would get executed on the spot lmao. There’s guys who are 6’2 range claiming 6’4-6’5 and you’re worried about a small round up. Oh god may the lord have mercy on your souls. I’m going out shopping for holywater this weekend if anybody needs some let me know ASAP! I will have plenty in stock, Sean 198cm and Myself are my first customers followed by Arthur.. perfect timing bro sit down sip some tea as well.
Greg said on 17/Oct/19
@Sean 198cm yeah I understand also forgot to mention but just wanted to add this, at your height you’re already tall you’re basically like 6’5ish going into 6’6 somewhere in between there so at that height you wouldn’t care to round up or down. For guys under 6’0 and even sometimes over in most cases if they are close they will round. I don’t think it matters once you get over 182.8 whether you said 188-190-193 etc..
Greg said on 17/Oct/19
@Sean 198cm Technically it’s only deceiving if I tried to say I’m a legit 5’11 which I’m not, although in person nobody would know wtf you’re talking about if you said weak strong flat 5’11, nobody outside of celebheights literally knows what you’re on about 😂 they’ve not read Rob Paul’s handbook of height claims. I believe anything you measure throughout the day is fair game. Sure some people go by lows or a height a few hours out of bed. In my case a few hours out I can be 179ish depending on how intense my day went. That being said sure on celeb heights you guys would say 5’10.25 or 5’10.5 my noon height. I think around or almost 5’11 in person is fair, I never get called out and am almost always guessed taller (not justifying inflation) however I think if you’re at least a chunk over the height in shoes most people won’t say anything for example 5’10.5 barefeet and about 5’11.5 in inch sneaker claiming 5’11 is fine 👍 even legit 5’11-6’0 guys guess me to be around that.

@Arthur: if we want to be technical I would call someone who is over 177.5 at an afternoon height. But that’s if you use CM. Bobby May just claim an imperial measurement which makes him closer to 5’10” since he’d be 5’9.75.
Bobby 1.78m said on 17/Oct/19
@Arthur

For me, legit means that you can measure the mark barefoot. Considering it's a valid measurement, I can say I'm a legit 178cm at some point in the day. That's all I'm getting at, but that clown doesn't get it.
Bobby 1.78m said on 17/Oct/19
@Myself

How about you just leave me alone? I'm not rounding twice or anything. 😂 How could I be when my afternoon height is 177.5cm? Seriously, why do folks like you have to pick on guys like me? Do I go around starting useless arguments on here? When all is said and done, I'm just defending myself, as is my right. If I were a bad guy, I'd tell you exactly what I think about you but I won't go there. I'm not in denial. I know exactly how tall I am and what I measure. If I want to put 178cm in my nickname, then let me. It's an objective measurement, so how is it not legit?

@Canson

I actually live in Canada, but I get what you're saying. Yeah, 177cm would be a claim here in metric, but I think 177/178 shows my range more specifically because I can be 178cm late morning to early afternoon and more 177.5cm in the middle of the day. Then of course by the evening, I would be 177.2cm. I normally hit 5'10 flat after 2 hours or so. So after that time, I lose half an inch tops.
Nik Ashton said on 16/Oct/19

Greg said on 16/Oct/19
@Sean 198Cm yep in Bobby’s defense I think you are looking into this too deep, he can say he’s 178cm if he wants 5’9.75” at a low is only rounding up by 1/4 of an inch. 5’10 is 177.8 so if he’s 177.2 at the end of the day he’s going to be 5mm off of 5’10 and he’s 5’10 flat in the afternoon so it’s a fair claim. So if I where to sit here and say you can’t claim 198 because you’re 197.2 at a low or something that would just sound crazy listen to yourself talk before you make an assessment.
Greg said on 16/Oct/19
@Canson Exactly Man it seems a lot of guys want to be taller but it could be an ego thing, I don’t understand the point of inflating especially if you’re over 6’0. 6’4 is pretty tall but some people like being that height all depends on your preference.
Arthur! said on 16/Oct/19
Bobby mate, you need to take a giant chill pill. Legit 178 cm means you don't ever measure under that, or at least not under 177.5 cm. You've had extreme occasions were you measured 176.8 cm. That is a legit 177 cm. I'm afraid Sean is right, you've put 178 cm in your username because you are somehow trying to make it official in your mind, but deep down you know it's not the case. 177 cm is an okay height, nothing wrong with it, once you accept it, arguements will stop, trust me.
It could have been a lot worse, you could have been around c-mo's range, and trust me, that's a bad neighbourhood. 175-176 range is a 15 year old's height nowadays.

How about 'Bobby 5ft 10½-9¾' or 'Bobby 179.1-177.2cm', it would cover the entire range?

@Sean
It's funny how much he convinced himself that he's a legit 178 cm to the point of being in such a ridiculous denial, unreal!
I imagine myself 1.5 years ago, if I claimed 193 cm here, when I was really just 192.0-192.3 at a low; that's so dumb and I would've never had the arrogance to do it. I even rarely claimed 193 irl, mostly 192 or "192-193".
He even has the arrogance to bend the laws of mathematics and round twice, too bad that his denialist mind isn't aware of the fact that you can't do successive roundings like that.
Also look at how he tried to bring Greg into the discussion, trying to turn him against me to seek for desperately needed support for his denialistic claim; looks like you are right about the cornering thing.
(Besides, I see absolutely no reason to round on this site, no more than ⅛" at least. I can see how at 3/4 you could round to the full mark even here, if you like it so much, but there's really no point in doing it on a site like this tbh, where we always try to be as accurate as possible...even then, as I said, I can totally tolerate it, but the situation is different when at your low you are actually too far away from the mark you are trying to round to. I'm not referring to Greg though, as I think he can claim 5'11 or "almost 5'11" irl, if he likes it and it helps him to avoid confrontation by people thinking he's taller, although I think I would personally just stick to 5'10.5" in his case.)

I will just ignore c-mo's sarcastic comment on the "General Height" page and hope that he actually read and understood my previous comments, as I even supported him about his claims.
Sakz said on 16/Oct/19
@James B 172cm It still doesn't remove people's desire to want to be tall though, mainly because of how society perceives it. Most people who want to be taller are under 6'0, so they want to transition into tall range. The main drawbacks begin when you are very tall, which many people don't want to be.

It appears that public pages won't be available to view on instagram without you creating an account now, I've noticed. Used to be anyone could browse a public account, but now it looks like they are going to make you sign up even to view public accounts.

I always feel it is unwise to require registration to view pages.

But I understand why some companies do it, because there's a lot of value in the registration and browsing history data.

Hey rob I measured last night my height and although I wasnt really active my neck was kinda hurting.I ended up measuring around 174,5-7mm do you think claiming 5'9 is fair?
Editor Rob
It's not that bad a claim as for a portion of the day you are pretty near it. Saying 5ft 8.5 might be a bit low for you, 'almost 5ft 9' might cover things too.

Hey Rob!

I'm watching 'The Green Inferno' again as it's showing on the Horror channel at this moment in time. I was in desperate need of a pee, but was reluctant to leave my brother until the break - it's the first time he's seen it.

It doesn't matter how many times one sees this film, it always shocks one senseless. When I arrived at the smallest room, I forgot to put the seat down, and didn't realize until I was about a quarter of the way through!

Well, at least it gave me a reason to laugh, which is more than can be said for 'The Green Inferno'!

@Bobby: I think the most important piece based on where you live (US vs internationally) is the end result. So if you’re 5’9.75 at a low then the only number that would matter is the height and inches to which you’re closest to 5’10”. As for metric 177/178 would still assume that you’re near 5’10” as well since saying you’re in that range would still make you closest to that. Even 177 is fine as it’s closest to 5’10”. If going by the site standards you would be 177 range

@James B 172cm Well being tall is nice, when I say tall I mean basically tall enough to reap the benefits and not have it be a disadvantage like 6’6+. Like 5’11-6’2 is the ultimate sweet spot and 6’0 is a good overall height to be. Just because you don’t want to be tall doesn’t mean others don’t want to.

@Greg: you said that very well. Not too tall. But that’s something I say to a lot of people. You get some who are unhappy at 6’2 or 6’0” and they try to stretch it an inch when they aren’t or shoes. That’s called greed. Take that from someone who already is very tall at 6’4” too

Do you even hear yourself right now? I physically measure 178cm during the day. How is that not an objective claim? How would you like it if I said you weren't a legit 198cm because you can fall to 197.5 or whatever? It wouldn't feel so nice, now would it? I frankly don't care what you think of me either at this point. You can call me deluded or crazy or stupid. I don't care. Now stop hassling me and assuming I've cornered myself. I was getting along just fine before you started giving me trouble over a small round-up. It's not even a centimetre. Seriously get a life and stop bothering me over pointless crap. Take a page out of your own book. You're saying I've got no right to be upset but you've got no right to bother me either. Let me do me and you do you.

@Sean198 @Myself @Johan @Canson
Basically it’s not deceiving for me to claim 5’11 or almost/around 5’11 as I measure it out of bed. I used to have 5’11 in my Nick way back when, as soon as I realized that I overmeasured slightly I changed it. I think it’s worse when guys who are 5’9 claim 5’11 or 6’0. I see it happen all the time or 6’0 guys claiming 6’2, 6’2 claiming 6’4 etc. that’s inflation right there claiming a morning height is fine. On this site I claim the average so 5’10.5 is right in between 5’10 and 11 and that’s almost/around about 5’11 whatever you want to call it.

As for rounding yes that always going to happen, and you’re right because you could have a 5’10 guy claiming 6’0 or a 5’10 guy being honest. There’s no issue between a 5’10.5 rounding to 5’11 and a 5’11.25 rounding down. I mean you might even have someone who’s 5’11.75” rounding down and a 5’10.5 rounds up, does that mean they should worry about one or the other? No it’s personal preference. It’s the same with Brad Pitt I think he’s a weak 5’11 guy more or less or between 5’10 and 11 on occasions he said 5’10 and others 5’11 it’s not a bad claim same with Jason Isaacs he runs intonations a similar situation as well. Ive been guessed at 5’11 and 6’0 constantly I rarely get guessed at 5’10 or less.

"I am still a legit 178cm even if I'm under the mark at night."

@Bobby: I don't think that word means what you think it means. Also, putting 1.78m in your flair doesn't make it true. Understand that you're being "cornered" because you're being irrationally defensive about something you have no right to be defensive about in the first place. Does that make sense? Do you understand that? You can cry about it all you want, but pouting on the internet will not make you grow a cm and become a legit 178cm. Better to accept your true height and move on rather than become a victim of your own delusions.

Johan 185 cm said on 14/Oct/19
The problem people have who round up from say the 1/2 inch mark is that they might meet an honest claimer who rounds down from the 1/4 mark.

For instance a guy who is 5'10.5" and claims 5'11" might meet a guy who is 5'11.25" who also claims 5'11". Now eyelevel/footwear/posture can also play a part and that 0.75 inch difference would look a solid inch to both at times. So thats why I feel rounding from 5'10.75" would be acceptable as you would be 100 percent safe from anyone questioning your claim.

Ofc in the real world especially that mark, guys who are 5'10.5" claim 6' and the 5'11.25" guy claims 6'1". But your never know.

This is what I think happened with Liam Neeson and Conan o brien. Conan has a longer eyelevel than liam but I guessed around 6'3.5" while Liam I believe was indeed a touch over 6'4". So it led to him thinking Liam was 6'5" while it was just a combination of his eyelevel and him rounding up.

@Johan: also the case if a guy measures 5’10.5 a couple hours after waking or 5’10.75 after an hour then they end up at 5’10.25 maybe. Then you get a guy who is 6’0” out of bed 5’11.25 at a low then boom a 1” difference.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 14/Oct/19
@Myself

Greg can do whatever he wants, mate. If he wants to put down 5'11 on his nickname, let him. If I want to put down 179cm on my nickname, then I will but I don't. Policing people and expecting them to remain cordial is a problem you might have. I'm not claiming anything I can't measure, so just drop it.

@Canson

Yeah, that'd be true, but I actually measure a solid 177cm at a low (177.2cm) and if we go with a 1/8th round-up then I would be 177.5cm in the afternoon or like 5 hours out of bed. So, that rounds up to 178cm or can round down to 177cm which is why I have stipulated in the past that I could go with a 177/178 to cover my range, but I just like the sound of 178 over 177, it sounds nicer to my ears. My entire defence has been to say that I measure a whole lot closer to 5'10 than something like saying, 176cm, so I don't get why guys like Myself and Sean 198cm have to start policing what I write in my nickname. It's insignificant to worry about. Surely they've got better things to do than to get pedantic over 5mm round ups.

@Sean 198cm

Yeah, but I don't hit 5'9.5 very often. I'm really 5'9.75 at a low which is very close to a flat 5'10. I don't see what the problem is, and 178cm just sounds better than 177cm. It's not a stretch of anything because I can measure that barefoot. I'm not lying about my height, so what's the problem here exactly?

@Bobby: im not getting what sounds better about 178 than 177 though. They’re both just numbers. As for the rounding up tho, technically 5’9 7/8 would round up to 177.5 since it’s 177.48 but not 178. True that it rounds to 177.5 but a solid 177.5+ would actually round up. Maybe 177/178 since you don’t come all the way down to 177 flat. But the more important result and the more impactful number is that it’s closer to 5’10” anyway you look at it

Hey Rob I have a question for you? I am 17 years old and 3 months, my height is 5’8 and 3 quarters or I think 5’9. Earlier this year my cousin checked me and he said I was right under 5’9. I don’t know but I think I’ve been the same height since last year and I’ve been obsessed with height since last year. My goal is to reach 5’10. My mother is 5’3.5 or 5’3 and a half and my father is between 5’11 to 6 ft. My goal is to have 5’10 be my final height to reach. I want to reach 5’10 by the end of this year to early next year. So do you think I can grow an inch?

Editor Rob

Still a chance to hit 5ft 10, but obsessing over it won't help.

Best get on with enjoying life. If you keep up sport/exercise and eat well and get sleep, you are maximising potential growth. Measure again in 4-5 months, because sometimes you can have no growth for many months and then hit a small spurt.




why does everyone obsess about wanting too be taller? there are many drawbacks too being tall.

How many hours at most do you recommend sitting on a chair to avoid spine decompression ?
Editor Rob
Inactivity can actually be bad for the spine. The spine does need daily movement, but if it is under a lot of strain, the discs could lose height quicker. Car driving is bad for your spine, but a couch is more forgiving compared to an office chair.

I always say the first step in maintaining a better evening height is to make sure you drink enough water.

@Editor Rob: I’ll also add that Glucosamine could help some. Another step in the right direction is do what Draymond Green does!!
Editor Rob
I would always ask a physician about supplements...but there is indeed a study on glucosamine helping the discs very slightly.

@Sean198: that’s good that you like yours. I consider you 6’6” too. I have a solid 6’6” friend a weak 6’6” who claims 6’7” (rolling my eyes) and inflates everyone and a 6’7” barefoot as well as a 6’5.25”. All heights we claim except the one who lies are barefoot afternoon. Now In my case I always round down but because I’m not that far over the mark in the afternoon. The guy that lies if memory serves correctly was a little under 6’6” when we measured when we played ball in college. I was measured 6’4.5 and 6’4.75 once when we played but because the latter was def morning and the former even if close to low was rounded up from 6’4 3/8” more than likely. Judging my former teammate he looks equidistant between my 6’5.25 and 6’6” friends when they stand next to each other. At times he can look similar with the former but ironically he never looks as tall as the other when they’re barefoot. Yet he calls me 6’6” or 6’5/6’6 my 6’5.25 friend 6’6-6’7 and my 6’6” friend 6’7 plus and my 6’7 friend 6’8/6’9.

@Bobby Myself and Sean198: I agree with Myself. In keeping with the standards here on the site, I think in feet Bobby is about 5’10” since about can mean under right at or slightly over. He measures all three. He would get 5’9 7/8 at 5 hours which is all Rob defines although I use my normal afternoon which is 1/8” less. Now in Metric, I believe 177 would be the more appropriate claim being he’s closer to that figure

To paraphrase Luke Skywalker, it's amazing that every word you just wrote, was wrong. Fact: I measure 177cm flat at 10pm after a day's activity. And you're gonna have to work on your definitions because arguing over millimetres is banal.

I'm only defensive about anything because I'm being targeted in the first place. Understand that. Don't corner people and don't think you have a right to judge them either. Understand that.

@Sean198: but in my experience I’ve seen on a normal day that my height 5 hours out of bed and my evening on a day when I don’t hit the gym only varies 3mm usually max some days 2. The site standard is variable. Rob says 5 hours but many will say afternoon. Afternoon for Bobby is 5’9.75. Even at an extreme low 5’9.5 or 5’9.5-.6 is all he would see. About 5’10 is good. I’ve long been an advocate of “about 5’10” for him since about in most people’s eyes means he is pretty much 5’10”. I use about 6’4” since I’m slightly over. I don’t come all the way down to 6’4”. I get 193.1-193.2 usually at an extreme low and 193.7-.8 on a normal day. As for Greg his 5’10 1/2” claim is actually good being he’s only slightly less. 5’11” may be stretching it being he’s closer to 5’10 than 11.

Lol, what's your problem mate? You're acting like 178cm is a magical number I don't ever measure. I am still a legit 178cm even if I'm under the mark at night. Any measurement you have during the day is valid. Do you also understand that Greg claims 179cm when he falls under it at his low? If I measure 177.5 in the afternoon then shouldn't that entitle me to claim 178cm? Or is a 1/4 round-up too much for you? I have plenty of understanding, but you're the one here who is acting ridiculous. You're policing my claims here on CelebHeights. Until Rob himself asks me to put 177cm down on my nickname then I am keeping the 178cm claim. And how am I not 178cm? You do realize that it's a valid measurement, right? I'm a weak 5'11 in the morning haha. I don't get you. I really don't.

@Canson:

Nah I don't hate my height. In fact, I love it. I do want to be as honest as possible though. Obviously I have no reason to round up or inflate myself, unlike some people here. Kinda boggles my mind how invested certain folks are in their height claims. Clinging to every millimeter as if their lives depended on it. But thanks for your advice, I'll just stick to 6'6 (which is what logically makes sense). If I were inclined to though, I'd have no problem rounding down to 6'5. I might do that anyway just to make the inflaters look stupid tbh.
Sean 198cm said on 13/Oct/19
@Myself: It's not exactly uncommon for people to be defensive about their height claims. But yeah, I find it ridiculous too. A 5'10.25-.375 (Greg) claiming 5'11 in no way justifies rounding up. Even irl, that's a very generous claim. It would be like me, a 198cm guy, claiming 2 meters. As far as "hard to swallow pills" go, the hard to swallow pill is that if Bobby were measured at 10pm after a day of activity, he would be nowhere near 5'10. Probably under 177cm in fact. And I'd argue that night height is one's true height rather than afternoon height.

@Bobby: There is no problem with what you are doing, but understand that being super defensive about claiming a certain height when you fall well under it will make you a target for criticism. That is all.

Anyway, I'm done talking to you about this, not that it's something so important to me either way.

Are you pretending or what?

Do you understand that Greg claims 5'11 to people outside this site? He objectively is closer to 5'10, and you objectively are closer to 177 than 178, but I'm not saying that you can't claim those marks outside CH. Anyway, talking to you is useless, you don't seem to have any understanding, to put it mildly, or you just want to believe so much that you are a legit 178 that you can't percieve anything that says the opposite, even if it's much closer to the truth.

Hi Rob!
I have a question for you. My father was 188 cm when he was young he is now 59 in a couple of weeks and was measured 187. My mother is soon 65 and i measured her at 174,5 ( she was 175 when she was young). What would you say the average height loss is for a mail and female that age is? To me it seems that my father is pretty normal but have done good and my mother have been very lucky. 8 also my uncle who is 67 is still at peak height but he have extremelly big bones, like john cena hands)
Editor Rob
Your mother did well with only half a cm or so, but 65-70 is an age she might find she loses a bit more. Your dad's 1cm loss also isn't too bad either within average range.

Your Mother is doing better than average loss for sure, I'd say most women by 65 are losing more 3cm range....but as I say that 65-70 zone is when retirement for many kicks in and losses increase too with the body ageing.

@Christian: I think even if he hated his height, that is difficult to round that down to 6’5. I could see 6’5.5 or even maybe 3/4 rounding down which is a stretch. As for your claim I agree with you

Hey rob if someone height is around 180 cm in 12 am what height he should be maybe 5 foot 11.5 inches, what do you think rob?
Vitto said on 12/Oct/19
Rob, it's almost 5'11 (5'10 7/8) considered tall for a woman in the UK where I live? And what about men? Is it still above average for men in the UK?
Editor Rob
A 5ft 11 man is still above average in the UK, but he's close to that zone where you transition from upper average to the start of tall.

A 180cm women is very tall in the UK. She will still see women taller than herself, but not that often.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 12/Oct/19
@Myself

177.48cm is a magic number mate, if I'm 177.2cm at a low and I am 1/8th taller in the afternoon, then how tall would I be? 177.5cm, right? That's 5'9 7/8s. So, what's a practical and sensible claim? 5'10, right? So, what's the problem with you exactly? Why are you policing what I write in my nickname and where I round too? So, therefore, 177.5 is rounded to 178cm.

And what's this about average or below average height people claiming a height they objectively are not? Lol. You're telling me when guys like Greg claim to be around 5'11, and myself claiming 5'10, are lying to you? How far along could you get in life when you don't trust anybody's good word? Fact: rounding up is okay and fair. Hard to swallow pills: I am objectively 5'10 and nothing you say will ever refute that. So, let's just bury the hatchet, okay? I'd rather not get into another debacle that bleeds into the better part of 2020.

How many hours at most do you recommend sitting on a chair to avoid spine decompression ?
Editor Rob
Inactivity can actually be bad for the spine. The spine does need daily movement, but if it is under a lot of strain, the discs could lose height quicker. Car driving is bad for your spine, but a couch is more forgiving compared to an office chair.

I always say the first step in maintaining a better evening height is to make sure you drink enough water.

177.48 is roundable to 177 more than it is to 178, mathematically speaking. You can round it to 177.5 at Max, but it's stupid and doesn't make sense to round twice (177.48 to 177.5 and then 177.5 to 178). You can ask Rob, I'm pretty sure he would say the same.

@Myself How can you make up a fantasy value?!
Vitto said on 12/Oct/19
Rob, If during a certain time of the day I measured exactly 180, how much that would be in inches? It's not 5'11 exactly because it's minus the 3 mm so in inches would it be 5'10 7/8?
Editor Rob
Yeah it can be closer to 5ft 10 7/8th
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Oct/19
@Sean
I'd claim 6'6", or 198cm if I'm using metric. Technically you're closer to 6'5 7/8", but rounding down to 6'5" would be ridiculous IMO, unless if you hated your height and wanted to be as short as possible

@Canson
That's also one of the reasons why I claim 6'5.5" outside of CH. I think claiming a midday/noon height is just as valid as a night height, and in my case especially, I work and go out mostly during the day, so it'd make more sense to go with a midday claim. I don't see why it would make more sense to claim 6'5" over 6'5.5" when I'm much closer to the latter, especially during midday.

I agree with the second part of your comment, but i see no reason for people average/below average to claim a height we all know they objectively are not. I understand doing it to a certain extent in real life (to non height aware people), because there is some discrimination towards people below certain thresholds, but I see no need of doing it here, a place where we are trying to look at things, specifically at height, from an objective point of view.

Yeah, but I don't hit 5'9.5 very often. I'm really 5'9.75 at a low which is very close to a flat 5'10. I don't see what the problem is, and 178cm just sounds better than 177cm. It's not a stretch of anything because I can measure that barefoot. I'm not lying about my height, so what's the problem here exactly?

Your low though would only be 177.2 if losing at the same rate as I do and if I hit the gym and we’re equivalent it would be 177-77.1 flat

@Canson Don't you realise that a taller person is losing more due to a longer torso? It's more like 179.1 - ((179.1 / 195.7) x 1.5875*) = 177.65

IMO Bobby should go with Bobby 177.5cm in his nickname

@Christian: I’ve heard people here say it both ways. That there is a difference and that there is not one. I’ve heard some say that evening is a lot less which is why they justify using the midday.

Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Sean198: the height that you have listed is what I would claim. If using imperial, 6 feet 6 would be it since you fall to around 6’5 7/8” or a tad over. You are essentially a legit 6’6” since you only fall maybe 2mm under. Love the resident tall guy but we’re not the only two. You have Ali Baba who is a more tenured poster but doesn’t post as often once in a while. Then Sotiris who posts just as often (6’7) 200.7cm, Junior Hernandez (197.2cm) who posts just as often, Ellis 6’7 (200.7) who is a regular (a bit less active) and Jdubbz who is 197 who posts often, Berta who is less frequent now, then Rampage and Myself who are also around 192/193
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/19
@Johan
There's a difference between noon and afternoon, despite many people not thinking that there is. I'm 6'5.5" at noon (which would be 12:00 since I typically wake up at 7:00 AM, and it's right around 5 hours out of bed, which Rob bases his estimates of celebs on) but I'm more 6'5 3/8" during afternoon, like 3 PM for example. I usually don't lose any more height after around 4-5 PM. But then again, the definition of "afternoon" is very loose, because technically 12:01 can be considered afternoon.
Canson said on 10/Oct/19

Sean 198cm said on 10/Oct/19
@Myself:

I don't think there is anything "unfair" about someone claiming a morning height here while others claim night height. If it makes them feel better, then more power to them. I agree that it would be nice if everyone stuck to the same standard, but it makes sense that the shorties go with morning or round up, whereas people like you who are already quite tall are more honest. In fact, I don't think I've seen a user here under 5'11 who doesn't round up, whereas all the 6'4+ posters (I include you in that category as well) categorically claim their lows or even round down.

I'm in kind of a similar situation as I fall to 6'6 or sometimes 6'5 7/8 but don't feel the need to inflate myself further. As far as Bobby goes, if he really does hit 5'9.5 at an extreme low (well under 177cm), then claiming 178cm is certainly a bit of a stretch. He'd be noticeably shorter than a strong 5'10 or maybe even a legit 5'10 (who doesn't drop under 177.8cm even under the worst conditions). Claiming 178cm makes it sound like he's saying he's above 5'10 when he actually dips substantially under it. I agree that the 5'10 part of his flair is just fine, but the 178cm is misleading.
Sean 198cm said on 10/Oct/19
@Christian and Canson:

Since you guys seem to be the resident tall fellows here, what height would you claim in my situation? I am 200.3cm out of bed and go down to 197.8-198cm at night. I lose between 2.3 and 2.5cm. I think 198cm or 6'6 makes the most sense, personally.

Afternoon and night is only a difference of a few mm's at most if you have been active that day. Only on lazy sunday's is my noon height around 186 cm range. Usually I go to work and already shrink from 187 range ( out of bed) to 185 range within 3 hours. Extreme lows aren't really something I see outside of heavy weight training days.

If I were you, I'd stick with 6'4 3/8" as part of your username, especially considering the fact that this site is based on noon heights and not night. I could've used 6'5.5" instead of 6'5 3/8" as part of my username since I'm more 6'5.5" at noon, but I don't feel the need to make myself taller. I could use 6'5.25" like I did 3 years ago, but I don't usually measure as low as 6'5.25" anymore unless if I'm at an extreme low or lifting heavy weights.

@Bobby
There is a difference between a claim irl to random people and one written in a site about height like this one, where everyone is precise to the millimeter. Saying that you are 5'10 even to height aware people is an acceptable rounding, but claiming specifically 178 in centimeters I don't think is completely sincere in your case. I don't see why you would want to round like that on this site, because as I said previously, the same necessity for a rounded claim that you would have in real life (where everyone also inflates themselves), is absent here.
But hey, if you like the number 178 that much more than 177, it's fine anyway. At least (as Greg said), you are honest about your height in the comments.

@Greg
Because I think it's kind of unfair towards all the other users (pretty much everyone that has a height in their nick on CH) that claim their lows in their nickname. It's implied that we are referring to our low (or at least "lowish") when adding a height in our nickname without any other specification.

@Canson
I still think it would be right for me to claim 6'3 ⅞" here, buy yeah, it would also be reasonable to round, considering ⅛" is negligible and 192.7 is easily roundable to 193. As I said previously, I think 5'10 would be a fair claim for Bobby here, if he likes to round, but the fact that he adds "178" cm for me is what really becomes a little excessive (in terms of rounding and misleadingness). I wouldn't have said anything if it was "Bobby 5'10" - 177 cm".
Anyway, doesn't matter, I think I got the point across.

Canson said on 9/Oct/19
@Myself: I agree with what you’re saying about all the others. I’ve used a nickname at times with a measurement when I say Canson 194 or Canson 6’4 3/8”. Although by site standards It becomes tougher. Do I use 6’4 3/8 my midday or do I use 6’4.25? When I describe myself here I use 6’4.25 even if I don’t come down to it every day. I’m typically 193.8 at a normal low and 193.6-.7 after hitting the gym 6’4.25 to a T and even can hit that mark on a day I don’t hit the gym if I am on my feet more. But even in my case as you’ve seen before I just consider myself a 6’4” guy and not even 6’4.25. I’ve even claimed 193-194 here before as that’s actually in my opinion very appropriate for me being 6’4.25” is what I often end up at. 194 is only because I’m closer to it but as I told Christian and I think everyone can tell, I really don’t care about claiming taller so I’d be fine just claiming 193 in reality as it is the same as 6’4 Of course I wouldn’t go below that. But if I went to 193 it may be perceived as a downplay and I never use metric outside of Celebheights. Outside of this site I claim 6’4” exclusively these days and if I told I’m taller or challenged I say 6’4.25”. It’s rare that I use 6’4 1/2”. Only when I played ball and was told I was that. Lol it makes it harder for people to lie about their height when I do that as I am firm with it
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 9/Oct/19
@Canson

Usually, in 6 hours, I'm at 177.2cm. Although I've measured exactly 177cm after 8-10 hours at one point in time. I just prefer to go with a mathematical average plus a slight round-up from 177.5cm which is admittedly equal distance from 177 and 178. If I wanted to be more technical, I'd just say I'm 177/178 to cover my range in metric, but in imperial, saying 5'10 just makes a lot of sense.
Litenko said on 9/Oct/19
Rob, how do you know the difference between 5 mm ? I mean how do you know/guess if anyone for example 176 cm or 176.5 cm?
Editor Rob
Always remember estimates are a best guess. Putting someone at say 5ft 9.25 rather than 9 might be because you feel there's a greater chance they might measure 9.25 than 9 or you've felt at times they looked 5ft 9, other times they might seem 5ft 9.5.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 9/Oct/19
@Myself

This isn't some federal offence that I can't put whatever height I want in my nickname. As it stands, 5'9.75 is closer to 5'10 than 5'9. I'm just being practical. I think you're being unnecessarily pedantic. Rob doesn't try to dictate how much we round and he's stated in the past it's practical for anyone who measures a 1/4 under at a low to round up anyway. I should know, I've asked him this question at least three times. You'll even see that Greg rounds to half when he falls to a quarter over at a low, but that's a decision that's up to him. Provided you're not claiming a false measurement, I think it's fine.

@Christian

Yeah, I know that, but it's not like 178cm is a false measurement and I'm closer to that in the afternoon than I would be to 177. And I don't much feel like writing 177.5/5'9 7/8s, that's stupid. You may as well round that up to a whole value. Also, I know what he meant. I just disagree. Being pedantic over fractions is useless. Literally, no one else cares about that really unless they work a job where they have to care about that.
Canson said on 9/Oct/19
@Christian: yea for Bobby 177 would be the closest for a CM claim at a normal low. If he went with Rob’s 5 hour method he may be 177.48. For an imperial claim if he used Rob’s 5 hour he would be 5’9 7/8 perhaps and at a low 5’9 3/4. In my case of being consistent with the site 194, but that’s only to be consistent. You know me and I wouldn’t have a problem just saying 193 even being 193.6-193.8 in the afternoon (excluding my extreme low which is 193.2)

@Myself: if I were 6’3 7/8 at s normal low I would still claim 6’4 just as I do 6’4.25-.3 at a low

@Myself To be fair I don’t see an issue with Bobby having 5’10 or 178cm in his Nick. I get what you are trying to say but most of us know Bobby’s height here like the back of our hand and the breakdown of his daily measurements. I remember at one point somebody said that Bobby should write a whole Book dedicated to his height that’s how often it was discussed on General several years back. People would always try to debate it and downgrade him to 5’9.5 or have him claim 5’9 some ridiculous stuff of that nature. I see some people having “x height in the morning or afternoon in their usernames” but I don’t see the need to be so technical you know?

Myself said on 8/Oct/19
@Bobby
You said 5'10 is not your low and you wake up at 5'10.5. You are a 177 cm guy realistically speaking (you said it multiple times in other comments too) and by the standards of this site, that's why I'm saying that putting 178 in your nick is a little too big of a rounding. You can literally see above, on this page, in Rob's description, "Rob Paul's Height - 5ft 8 ⅛ (173 cm)" - "I measure 5ft 8 ⅛in at night", rather than 173.7 cm, as that's what he measures on 95% of his videos (which he could've rounded to 174 cm, and then to 5'8.5", which is basically what you are doing tbh). As well as the fact that Christian, Jdubbz, Spainman, Johan, K.A, just to name a few, all list themselves at their lows, and that there were/are users that listed themselves at their morning height too, but they specified it in their nick.

It's not an official rule and of course you have the freedom of putting whatever height you want in your nickname, but I'm surprised nobody else pointed out the fact that you are slightly violating the site's customs.
Bobby 1.78m said on 8/Oct/19
@Myself

I don't think it's misleading at all. I'm going with a rounded up height at a low, and in metric, 177.8 rounds to 178 like 182.88 rounds to 182.9 or 183. I don't see how that's misleading at all.
Canson said on 8/Oct/19
@Ajax: knowing Christian from interacting with him since he’s been here, he is not the type to care about rounding up to be fair. He’s just using logic as far as rounding up a low but I’m sure he doesn’t care about whether he claimed 196 or 197

Myself said on 7/Oct/19
@Bobby
Yeah man, but on this site we consider legit a height that you measure 5-7 hours out of bed (provided that you are at least moderately physically active in that period of time), not really only 2.
Like I am probably around 6'4 ⅛"-6'4.25" 2 hours out of bed, so I wouldn't put that in my nickname here, as that's misleading.

Personally, it would be more likely that I put my extremish low (6'3.75"-192.4-5 cm) on this site, next to my nick, rather than my early morning...Of course when claiming a height that is like 5 hours out of bed + rounded up (or a morning height alternatively), is fine when talking to non height aware people, but that's not the type of people that use this site...I am 6'3 ⅞" at my low, so I think that it would be fair for me to list myself here as that, rather than 6'4+ (even though it would be fair for me to claim 6'4 flat too here, as that's what I can measure like 4-5 hours out of bed, depending on activity levels).

So if someone is 175.7 at an afternoon height then 176 would be practical. If 175.8 lunch and still 175.5 then 176 is still practical. 5’9.25 at a normal low could round either way. 5’9 1/8 is 5’9” or anything under .25 should round down imho

@C-mo , I am 175.7cm with perfect posture but I don't round up to 5'9.5" , It's not true in my opinion , and since I have got a bad posture , I claim 5'9" flat.
You can claim 5'9.5" max but honestly If you go more than that , It would be "inflating" and not true.

@Bobby: to both of your replies. You would be in that same category which would obviously mean you would round to 5’10”. As far as what a 5’10.1 or .2 guy would round to its 5’10” since its closer to that than 5’10.5 or 5’11”. And I appreciate you defending me! And that’s exactly what I was saying!

@C-Mo

Bro, a guy who falls to 174.7cm is going to be claiming 175cm in metric and just say he's 5'9 by rounding up, nothing wrong with that, and that's not what Canson was doing. He was being practical. For Canson, it's about rounding to where you're closest to, in my case, I am closer to 5'10, so I round to that. In your case, you're in a buffer zone where you're a 1/4 over, so you can round up to 1/2 which Greg does for his low, or you could round down which other people do. That's all he's saying. No one's telling you to claim anything.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 6/Oct/19
@Myself

To be fair, I am going with a late morning/early afternoon measurement with my nickname. I wake up at 5'10.5 and lose half an inch after 2 hours or so. I don't dip to my low until maybe 5-6 hours after getting out of bed, so I'll be on the threshold of 5'9 7/8s-5'10 until I do. Also, if I recall correctly, Canson once mentioned rounding up 1/8th if you wanted to claim an afternoon height and in my case, that would be 5'9 7/8s, so it's practical to claim 5'10. That's all I'm doing.

@Myself: Christian could claim 196 197 or 198 if he wanted. As for C-Mo he could claim all of that too relative to his own range. Going off the site standards Christian would prob be 196/197 or 197. I tend to go with what you’re closer to at a low so for me that’s 194 since I’m 6’4.25-.3. Meaning I wouldn’t say I’m 195 or 196 because I wake up to it but I wouldn’t have a problem saying 193 either although I’m well enough over the mark.

I have the feeling that you are trolling now ....

so a guy who measures 174.7cm at night . what is he in your eyes ? what shall he claim ? 5'8 right ? dont be silly dude ...enough with this nonsense

a guy who is 175.2 - 175.5cm at NIGHT is a very strong 5'9 guy and he will be taller than 5'9 in the earlier hours of the day . he can either claim "a bit over 5'9" or just 5'9 it is up to him

but a guy who is 174.7cm has every "right" to claim 5'9 . in fact such a guy SHOULD just say 5'9


Canson I am done with discussing you because we are just turning in circles . if you want you can see yourself as the "winner" of this discussion I dont care . you claim what you want and I claim what I want and thats that

we dont have to agree

I am not interested in “winning” anything, C-Mo. I’m just pointing out your very peculiar statements and how they sound because they’re one-sided and you make comments about people because they don’t round up. I didn’t say that a 174.7 guy couldn’t claim 5’9”, don’t put words in my mouth. Where did I say that? All I meant was that your statement is silly. You’re saying a 174.7 guy (someone under 5’9” should round up to 5’9” and is the one to classify as 5’9”.) but someone a skosh over 5’9” shouldn’t round down to it. Instead they should round up. Just because someone doesn’t come all the way down to it. If you read my question to you. It is “what do you consider to be 5’9”? That was what I asked. That’s what I mean by too much rounding because everything is being rounded up. In addition, if what you’re saying I’m “trolling now” then the same can be said about you. You’re saying people shouldn’t claim 5’9” if they don’t come all the way down to it? so if what you’re saying about me is the case, then the same goes for you especially when you make statements like bean counter because someone rounds down or autistic because they round down.

@Canson
I think it's fair for Christian to claim 197, to reduce the amount of times he would get told that he's taller, and also considering the average tendency is always to round up, rather than down.
@Canson
I also agree that it's relatively fair for c-mo to claim 177 too, but only to non-height-aware people, taking into consideration the previous points and the fact that you would also generally get discriminated more often (not that it's very common, but sometimes it would be slightly disadvantages when getting judged only by stats, expecially when there's the effect of the first impression) if you are below 180 cm (which is considered like the American 6'0, in Europe).
At the same time I think it's best if everybody claimed the mark they are closest to, and I probably would still do it anyway, even if I was average/below average, just out of principle...
At the same time, tbh, I think Bobby (no that I have anything against him) is a little misleading on this site, just like Ellis (was/is). It's fair for Bobby to claim 5'10 outside this site, but I think that if you are stating a height that is not your normal low in your nickname on this site, you should specify what time of the day it's referred to, or just state only your low. So imo Bobby's nick, by this site's customs, should roughly be either "Bobby 5ft 10in/178cm (Mid/late-morning)" or "Bobby 5ft 9 3/4in (177 cm)".
@Bobby
No offense to you, but just like I said to Ellis...when someone claims a height (in the nick) on this site, it's usually implied that they are referring to their normal low, so in case it's not, I think you should always specify it imho.

Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 5/Oct/19
@C-Mo

I've honestly never heard of such a loss for a guy under 6'0. According to your stats, you lose as much as 2.4cm if we go by 178.3 - 175.9cm or at least 2.3cm if you're exactly 176cm at a low. If we factor in your extreme low of 175.5cm then the loss amounts to a total of 2.8cm. That's very close to 3cm. Why such a large loss? I only lose 2cm, sometimes even 1.8cm.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 5/Oct/19
@Ajax509

Lol, what? The difference is more than 8mm. C-Mo says he measures a low of 175.9/176cm.

I measure a low of 177.2cm. That makes me pretty much half an inch taller. Just because our morning heights are less than a centimetre apart doesn't mean that we are this close apart. That's not how height loss works. I would edge out C-Mo by a 1.2-1.3cm buddy. Or half an inch pretty much.

Christian wasn’t “making anything up about you” C-Mo. he simply made a mistake. And that is silly what you said that 174.7 is 5’9”. What about a person who measures bang on 175.2 or 175.3 or 175.5? They’re 5’9”. That’s too much rounding on your part. I bet if you were 49 years old or 39 years old and 6 months and 1 day if someone called you 40 you would probably say you’re still 39. So why is height an exception to the rule when it comes to rounding if that’s the case?

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Oct/19
@Canson
But it's not that easy for someone like me who falls right around .5 to decide which nearest cm to claim. Whenever I use metric, I often claim 197, but there are times where I've also claimed 196.
Canson said on 4/Oct/19
@Christian: I actually don’t think C-Mo was one of them who told Bobby that. Other guys here did but I don’t think he did. Maybe I’m wrong but I thought he told him to say 5’10”.

But As far as a CM claim I don’t see why 176 is an issue since it is the closest to what he measures in terms of CM. A 176cm guy would be 175.5-176.5 afternoon height. He said 175.9-176 so that’s a solid 176 or borderline 176 if you asked me and it’s on a “relaxed day” not an extreme low. And saying “other guys do this” shouldn’t have any bearing. I don’t go off what others claim. If others in that range claimed 175 would it still be the same? Probably not. And that’s not directed toward C-Mo but toward others as I always see something about morning height or about others being more egregious so it’s ok but we never hear “I’m claiming my extreme low over my morning height” or the “extreme low is my real height” or “well others claim their extreme low so I will too”. It’s only the higher of the two. But That’s like me if my extreme low were my normal low 193.1 or .2 then why would I round that to 194 or why would I claim 6’4.5” at that stage? If it came to CM I would claim 194 As I’m a weak 194 but if i were 194.3 or 194.5 I would prob still say 194. It almost sounds as if someone doesn’t come all the way down that you must round up which doesn’t make sense. It should be whatever you are closest to. So for you for example you say 196/197 that’s fair and 196 or 197 would also be since you’re around 6’5 3/8 at a low. You could claim 6’5 or 5.5. Ditto for Greg. Even at say 5’10.25 or 6’4.25 The person could say either the full number or the half.

@Bobby: I think too much attention to detail is placed for some people “I don’t fall all the way to the mark etc”.

I think if we are going to get that specific then the rule should be 3/4 up. An example is Rob as he just claims 5’8” when his low is 1/8-1/4” some days or others just 1/8” over. Then if we are going to be specific for a CM claim it should be whichever you are closest to at a low. So an example for me is 193.6 or 193.7 or .8 at a low I would round that to 194 not to 195 or 196. I also say because an extreme low I would just round to 193 since I’m not far above it

Bro, you just admitted to being barely over 1/8th at an extreme low, which is basically the same as saying 5'9 flat. I know in my case, I am banging on half an inch over to 5/8s at an extreme low, so still much closer to 5'10 than 5'9.

And yeah same, on relaxed days, I can even be 177.5, but with productivity thrown in, I will be 177.2 and might even measure 177 flat after 8-10 hours.

Regardless, what you claim, at least be sure it remains true to what you measure whether that's in the morning, the afternoon, or the evening.

at 178.3cm out of bed and being over 177cm for at least 1-2 hours daily and regarding the fact that most people exeggerate their height and claim a height that is taller than they actually are ...I will definitely not claim 176cm . I will not play in their favor I am not stupid . and I am not even claiming a height that I am not ...I DO measure 177cm for not only a brief moment ...it is my height

while there are guys coming up to my forehead being 169 and claiming 175 I will definitely not claim 176 . f**k that

I don’t see why it matters and why you get so uptight about what to claim, C-Mo.
Canson said on 2/Oct/19
@Rob: actually being 5’8 7/8” peak out of bed comes out to your afternoon height if you are 5’8 1/8” at a low and near 5’8.25 at 5 hours and 5’8.5 after an hour. That’s the same height loss pattern I have even being 8” taller. Meaning around 1cm after an hour, half inch after 2 hours and about 5/8” after 5. Chances are you have just retained what you had before and the extra bit over the 7/8” is just equivalent to me measuring 1-2mm over the normal morning height on more sleep
Canson said on 2/Oct/19
@C-Mo: you don’t on a normal day which is why you’re around a strong 5’9” but saying 1-2mm over 5’9” I see what you’re saying but it’s still closer to 5’9” than 5’9.5” or 5’10”. If someone is measured a mm or two over a mark a doctor is going to just tell them they’re 5’9”. But I don’t use the extreme low in my case as a true method of measurement. Some do but I use the normal low. I just round my normal low down.

My definitions are: 0-1/8 solid
1/4-1/2: strong
1/2-3/4 weak

The 3/4-7/8 and the 1/8 to quarter are borderline solid and borderline strong.

@ajax509

That makes literally no sense. Greg doesn't even physically measure under 5'10, why would he downgrade himself? The fact is, C-Mo is regularly 5'9.25 at a low but can dip to 5'9. Greg is just being practical, and most guys who measure a quarter over would probably not even bother rounding up. C-Mo has really got two options for where he's at, round down or round up to 5'9.5. Just like Greg rounds up to 5'10.5 from his low. Same . I don't know why you're complicating this.

@Bobby: Even In C-Mo’s case he dips to 5’9.2 which is under the 1/4. But he loses more than the average person at that size so going from 5’10.1. .9”. I don’t even lose that much being 7” taller than him. Could be a number of factors such as torso size or body weight. But Greg is being practical as a guy In the 5’10 1/4-3/8” range would be closer to half than to 5’10”. I am one of the ones where you said some don’t bother with the rounding up but because I’m pretty much a solid 1/4” over and don’t see added benefit (at any height really) in rounding up
