Are there a large percentage of ethnic minorities in your area? That could be the reason why the average feels more 5'8". I know where I live, there's a pretty big Asian and Latino population, so the average feels around 5'8".

I got quite a few, Brendan Fraser, Blake Harrison, Carrie Anne Moss, Chaco guerrero, Jason isaacs, joe Thomas, Kelly Kelly, Matthew lillard, Melina, Rey mysterio, Robert glenister, Robert Picardo, ted dibiase, tom Felton, Vickie guerrero and Zachary quinto.

I imagine rob will upload the photos he’s already got a page and pics for in the next few weeks and then the usual adding of new pages/pics over the years as normal :)

@Christian 6'5 3/8" yeah thats idiotic for him to say that, that makes no sense whatsoever...
AndrewV said on 4/Aug/19
I’m a strong 6ft (185.5cm in the morning to 183.5cm-184cm at a low) and I feel legit tall in the general population and young guys of all races in America, the average for the 20-39 age group is about 5’9.5”. However, around non-Hispanic white guys in the same age group the average is a solid 5’10” and I’m really more tallish (slightly over 75th percentile) at my majority white university. I’m often among the tallest if not the tallest guy around but there are many instances where a big portion of guys in the hallway or at a party are 6’0”+ and thus feel just above average. 6’1” is probably where legit tall would start around young white guys while 6’0” is really the start of tall/tallish.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Aug/19
@ Connor - Always look on the brighter side! You are are true 6ft, which is many a guy's dream height - and you are young, so years away from suffering from any height-loss.

I can understand that an inch or two would be welcome, but the reason for this is to act as 'height to fall back on' in the future, when height-loss sets in. However, just think positively, Connor: you have around three decades to look forward to as a 6-footer; now that IS something to celebrate!

🍾πŸ₯‚ Cheers, Connor, and enjoy your weekend too! Sandy πŸ˜πŸ‘ xxx
Nik Ashton said on 4/Aug/19
@ Prog King - I think that 5’11.5” is tall too!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Aug/19
While I agree with Nik that 6'0" is tall, it's on the lower spectrum of tall. Anything under it isn't though, not even 5'11.5". My defintion of "tall" is anything 3"+ than the average.
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
@ cmillzz - 5'6" is on the high end of the short range!
Lazar99 said on 3/Aug/19
Cmilliz ,however It's tallish at worst ,and still better than being below 5'10".
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
@ khaled taban - I agree that 6'0" is tall!
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
@ Rob - I bet you have had plenty of dreams about celebrities and celebheights visitors!
cmillzz said on 3/Aug/19
When I think of just a standard tall guy, I’m picturing someone who’s 6’1-6’2. Even 6’3 too, but 6’3 is starting to get near that very tall range. Not quite there yet though.
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
@ Sandy Cowell - I bet your Dad was cross and it is sometimes difficult when someone (whoever that someone might be.) is angry at something you find amusing, in fact some people laugh more than ever when other people are angry about some of the things that they already find funny (as long as those things are not too serious.)! Once Jasmin opened her bladder all over Mark's settee because she was excited that we had all come back from a trip out somewhere, he shouted at her and she rushed in to the toilet where I was ....!
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
@ cmillzz - I agree that 5'8" is definitely more common than 6'0" in the US/UK!

For me it is a no brainer (autocorrect tried to change it to brainier!) that 6'0" is tall but it is not a "very tall" height!
Importer said on 3/Aug/19
@cmillzz I've heard from a guy above 190cm say "180cm and over is fairly tall."
Csimpson6ft said on 3/Aug/19
@cmillzz yeah 6'0 is just quite tall and 5'6 is quite short, in my experience as a six footer i definitely dont feel massively tall at all because i dont particularly stand out in crowds and tower over people. I feel like i still blend in with everyone else, theres even times when i dont feel tall and i only feel above average or tallish if theres a few young 5'10 guys walking about in public, but yeah overall i would say 6'0 is only quite tall or moderately tall, it's not a big height.
Csimpson6ft said on 3/Aug/19
@cmillzz I live in the UK and i can safely say that 5'8 is definitely pretty common in our country, you see a few 5'7 and 5'6 guys too. Infact im inclined to say that the average height for guys here is more like 5'8 than 5'9, there isnt that many 5'9 range guys walking about where i live and theres also not many 6 foot or taller guys here either, it makes me feel pretty tall in my area. There is some guys taller than me in Doncaster but they aren't very common at all, on average i see like maybe 3 of them now and then same with 5'9 and 5'10 guys, i dont know this is just a rough estimate it's various but most of the time as i said theres not that many average and tall people in Doncaster.
Tunman said on 3/Aug/19
Didn't you say that your height is exactly 5'11 7/8"?If so your eyelevel is likely slightly lower.As far as I have seen your head doesn't seem too small probably a little over 9"(but it's just my opinion).A 4"eyelevel is very small for a 6'man even 4 1/8" is.I guess it must be 4.4 or so which is still a little under average.Maybe a slight tilt of your head upwards reduced the actual eyelevel measurement?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Aug/19
I've seen one guy who said that 6'0" isn't tall but 5'9" is short. That's ridiculous
Nik said on 3/Aug/19
@ Rob - We all interact with you every day too!
Editor Rob
It's interesting that folk like yourself, are in the small minority who I know what you look like. 99% of people I communicate with online I don't know beyond a name/avatar or whatever.
Ben said on 2/Aug/19
You've crept into my dreams too Rob! One time it turned out I was barely 5ft 9 and another it turned out I was 6ft 1.75 or it might've been the full 6ft 2 I'm not quite sure!
Editor Rob
I've mentioned before that any height related dream I have is more about missing getting photoshoots.
Csimpson6ft said on 2/Aug/19
@Miss Sandy Cowell Yeah i feel pretty tall at 6'0 it's a nice height but not quite tall enough for me, even though i am taller than most people im not really that much taller than guys at my age since the average height for us young guys is 5'10 so i can kind of understand why some posters say that 6'0 is'nt quite tall but yeah im not too much taller than the average for my generation, to be honest with you im not 100% satisfied with my height.

If i were 6'1 or 6'2 that would be preferable for me and id feel more solidly tall in that range, 6'0.5 would even do for me and if i was either of those heights i would never go below the 6'0 mark at my low even on a very bad day, i hate dipping under it but it is what it is, overall 6'0 is a moderately tall height nothing gigantic but anyway I hope you have a great weekend Sandy bye for now.
Prog King said on 2/Aug/19
@Nik, i dont think 6'0 is tall, borderline tall maybe, but true tall is 6'1+
Myself said on 2/Aug/19
@josh b
Hey) With whom did you get photos? So I can check those pages when they're out.
cmillzz said on 2/Aug/19
5’8 is definitely more common than 6’0, at least in the US/UK.
cmillzz said on 2/Aug/19
It really isn’t that tall dude. Just like 5’6 isn’t THAT short.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Aug/19
@ Rob - It was a very nice dream, with kids from your videos in it as well!
khaled taban said on 2/Aug/19
@Nik, they must be kidding!
Unless you are +6'4", you have no right to say 6'0" isn't tall πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Actually 6'0" is above average for men in almost every single country in the world.
Only Netherlands and Danric Alps have average height above 6'0"
Nik said on 1/Aug/19
@ Rob - You will have crept into many a celeb's dreams too!
Editor Rob
That is probably true...maybe the odd nightmare 😡
Csimpson6ft said on 1/Aug/19
Rob Glenn probably has nightmares of you measuring him again under 5'8, but this time the shrinkage is much much greater and he has shrunk to 1 feet tall from when he drank his glass of water after you tampered it at night by putting EnerGy booster in it and mixed it in, maybe you should do it for real for revenge after he made you shrink to 4'3.
Editor Rob
To be fair, he probably did have height nightmares after his experiences on this site, so the longer he's been away hopefully the less he will think about it!
Nik said on 1/Aug/19
@ Rob - Yeah, I've dreamt of you too! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!
Editor Rob
Yeah my face is on this site quite a lot, so it probably will pop up in a few visitor's dreams...
Nik said on 1/Aug/19
If 5'6" is small then 6'0" is tall!

If 5'7" is small then 5'11" is tall!

Lazar99 said on 1/Aug/19
Hi @Rob, If my normal height is 172 cm, 2 days ago I've stood pulling my head back, afterwards I've measured my height as 172.6cm.
Idk If this is my real height or not, I feel as if It's not my real height or some kind of cheating,because If I don't pull my head towards back, I would measure 172cm again.
What would you say Rob?
Editor Rob
'Busting a gut' like standing tall and breathing in gives your maximum height, sometimes it's only 2-3mm different than what you measure if you just stand tall, but others could get 5-7mm difference.

It's not a huge difference really when you think about it.
Ndomingu said on 1/Aug/19
Hi, Rob. I have a question on how accurate height can be measured at public places with stadiometers/general height charts/hand ruler like things vs measuring tapes. I’ve noticed my height gets a lot of diverse results.

At some public places the lowest I can be measured at is 5’7 1/2” and other times it can be 5’8” or 5’8 1/2” (even randomly somewhere between 5’8” and 5’9”).

When my father who is over 6 ft by an inch or two measured me with a measuring tape he said I was almost 5’9” (not sure how close fraction wise, I just was told it wasn’t far from it) from 3-4pm and I think 5’8 1/2” in the very evening hours before.

So, my question is which method do you think is more successful for accuracy? Is one way always right or wrong? I do find that pretty odd to get some way different results like that, but I usually overall claim a weak 5’9” flat since that’s the most I have found myself measured at and because it was with a standard measuring tape in afternoon hours. Have you ever encountered many situations like that for yourself or known for anyone else before? Just curious.
Editor Rob
A tape measure that isn't bent or doesn't have damage to the end is the first thing.

The second is the wall/floor can have an effect - it might seem a floor is flat, but sometimes it slopes and could knock a cm from your height.

Some devices that are used a lot, may have issues too, like cheap stadiometers or 'beam' measuring devices.
Nik said on 1/Aug/19
The average guess is 5'8.37" after 485 votes!
Csimpson6ft said on 1/Aug/19
Rob my eyelevel is at between 5'7 3/4 and 5'7 7/8ths, i guess i too can look taller at my height right?
Editor Rob
Yes, it means the vast majority of folk will think of you as six foot range rather than if you had an eyelevel near 5ft 7, then a fair amount might think of you as shorter.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Aug/19
@ Connor - Over 6ft - easily. It goes to show how tall 6ft really is. I have had SO many fellas pretend to me to be that height, but aren't even 5ft11!

Cheers Connor! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
Goel175cm said on 1/Aug/19
@ Rob,
Here is the average height of 17 year old males in Israel
Click Here
It's about 173.5cm for 17 year old males.
So can we safely consider the average height of fully grown young Israeli to be 5'9 or 175cm.
Editor Rob
174-5 might be the 21 year old height
MrFish said on 31/Jul/19
Rob, for a 20s something man, is 174 cm still in the average range for the US/UK? Is it solidly out of the "short" range?
Editor Rob
I think he will feel short at times, other times average. Overall i would say probably more average feeling.
Nik Ashton said on 31/Jul/19
It’s great to see 2020 comments on this page!

πŸ—£ "6'0" isn't tall!"! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!
Andrea said on 31/Jul/19
I see, Rob, and you're perfectly right to do so, but you really are uploading photos in dribs and drabs in the last year!
Editor Rob
yeah the last year or so, particularly since May 2018 when GDPR (EU) privacy regulations kicked in, means the site has taken a hit in terms of ad rates.

In traffic terms, the site has been at a pretty consistent level for the last few years.

But with lower ad rates for longer periods, throwing up new content during these those times isn't going to help as much as it might during periods when rates are better and extra views are worth more.

I wish I didn't need to consider such things and if the site was a side-venture, hobby or comfortable earner, it would be a lot more immediate!

Hi Rob!

This afternoon I dreamt of you and Jenny! Jenny had lots of blonde hair and looked very tall and graceful - in high heels. You looked just like you always do! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘
Editor Rob
I am sure I've crept into many a visitor's dream over the years...I hope it wasn't a nightmare though 😊
josh b said on 31/Jul/19
Hey rob, hope you and Jenny are well recovered from the manic weekend :) I’ve sent you my photographs from the event, hope everybody on the site enjoys the new additions.
Editor Rob
I'm recovered, but Jenny caught some sort of tummy bug for a few days and only today is feeling better.

It is good you and Em seemed to enjoy yourselves and meet some cool celebs!
khaled taban said on 30/Jul/19
Rob, If my height is 5'8.8-5'9", and my eye level is 5'4.75", Does that mean I have small/average/big head size?
Editor Rob
I'd say a bit high, so your head size may be smaller than average...which from other people's perspective can mean you might be guessed taller than you actually are.
FiveEightJake said on 30/Jul/19
Rob as someone who only discovered celebheights earlier this year can you give a brief summary of the Big G inside joke, I often see it and feel left out.
Editor Rob
Big G is an autograph dealer from The Bronx, who was a contributor from 2005-2009. He met a lot of celebs on the streets and claimed to be 5ft 8. It turned out his evening height was around 5ft 6 5/8ths when I eventually measured him, a fact he has erased from memory since he still tells people he's 5ft 8.
Arthas said on 30/Jul/19
Hi Rob if on a lazy day (only sitting at computer, sedentary) I am 185,2 cm at morning on a lazy day 20 minutes after sleep, 184.6 cm 3 hours after bed, 184.2 cm 7-8 hours out of bed, then at the end of the day at night I'm 183.6 cm... but that's on the lazy day.

In a working day (walking, play soccer) I'm 184.4 cm 3 hours after bed, 184 cm exactly 6 hours after wake up (before lunch at 2 pm), and 183.3 cm at night at 9-10 pm... my extreme low in an active day it's 182.9 cm

So overall what height should I claim? 183 or 184?
Editor Rob
If you never want to be questioned or thought of as being shorter than your claim, then 183 would mean most people would think 'this guy is bloody honest'...even saying 184 seems reasonable enough, given you can be 185 range in the morning.

The key thing is if you give a height you measure barefoot, then ultimately it's not wrong and is better than half the population who add 1-5cm to their heights.
Ashutosh said on 30/Jul/19
Hi rob just a quick question if someone night height has 159.2 what height he claim??
Editor Rob
159 or 160...but they may be 161 in the morning.

Personally I wouldn't claim a height first thing out of bed, but some folk do.
Sakz said on 30/Jul/19
@LikeA6'1 You say that but sometimes it gets to the point where you'll always want to be just that little bit taller. In footwear you'll appear 6'2 anyway so it won't make much of a difference, and both heights are in the tall range.
Sakz said on 30/Jul/19
@cmillz I think 'too short' would be somewhere under 5'5. At 5'6 you won't look short to the point where you stand out, like how at 6'0 you don't look tall to the point where you stand out.
Andrea said on 30/Jul/19
Nice! Just don't make it a too far future content though (seeing your recent problems such as Aphantasia and sh*t)... πŸ˜…
Editor Rob
If the site was based on subscription, I would absolutely follow a Drop schedule ...but since it's entirely funded through advertising and ad rates have an influence on content addition, then it's more suited to a Drip release.

I wish I didn't even have to consider such things as ad rates 😫, but it's necessary to be able to continue running the site.

I had one guy the other day say to me at a con, "I keep seeing you online"...well, that's the idea 😺. I actually want myself out there as much as possible...well apart from facebook, keep me off that 😾
Nik Ashton said on 30/Jul/19
@ cmillzz - I know but I said β€œonly” because for 6’0” not to be tall there would have to be more than one sixth of men this height or taller.
Nik Ashton said on 29/Jul/19
@ Sandy Cowell - I know that your Dad has got a good sense of humour, maybe he doesn’t laugh at almost everything though!

I too would have been amused by Sophie’s antics that day and I may not have been able to contain myself!
Andrea said on 29/Jul/19
Did you get home safe and sound from the CC, Rob? How was it? Did you manage to take some good pics? πŸ˜€
Editor Rob
Yes, and every year afterwards I say 'enough, I'm done with Comic Cons'. Then I look at photos and think, "Maybe I'll give it one more year" πŸ˜†

Regrettably this year I had to pass on meeting a few people due to a tighter budget.

Nevertheless, a fair few interesting encounters with actors and future content for the site. CelebHeights turned into a long-term endeavour. I remember in 2007 thinking I might manage 5 years before moving on, but here almost 15 years into the site, I'm still attending events.
Csimpson6ft said on 29/Jul/19
@LikeA6'1 it's possible but it's very rare, you would be a late bloomer if you gained height in your twenties.
Csimpson6ft said on 29/Jul/19
@Importer yeah i do get guessed at 6'2 quite a few times, 6'3 not as much but some people thought i look that height too, 6'1-6'2 guesses are more common for me.
c-mo said on 29/Jul/19
Rob 2 questions

1. is it normal to lose more height on some days than on others ? today after 1 hour being awake I am 177.1cm but usually I am 177.3cm

or did I lose height ? my back is f***ed up a bit

2. I reach my low after 5.5 or 6 hours . is that normal ?
Editor Rob
Yes, some days you might undertake more activites that cause greater strain on the spine, resulting in a few mm worse off than other days. Also, hydration levels may have a tiny effect on height as well.
LikeA6'1 said on 27/Jul/19
Hey Rob. Is it possible to get taller at 22? Lol, I'm happy with my height I just wouldn't mind being 6'2 :) i'm 185cm, 6'1, but I want to be 6'2 haha, just for the satisfaction. Could I gain an inch in my early twenties? Thanks!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jul/19
@ cmillzz - You're too right about MPB being hereditary. My brother didn't stand much of a chance with it being on both sides of the family! πŸ˜πŸ–•
cmillz said on 26/Jul/19
I’m not saying heights under 5’11 are too short or heights over 6’3 are too tall either. Really I think once you have issues with doorways, that might be getting too tall.
cmillz said on 26/Jul/19
Even Rob’s height isn’t too short imo as he’s still in the average range for sure. β€œtoo short” would be maybe 5’6 (and especially under 5’6), but then again, it is subjective. Nobody has control over their height anyway, so it feels a bit s****y to say that certain heights are too short.
Nik Ashton said on 26/Jul/19

Nik Ashton said on 26/Jul/19

@Canson said on 25/Jul/19

That range is a bit too tall
6'5 is way too tall. I saw someone today must have been strong 6'4 it looked massive.

I just can't see how that would ever be an ideal height. Even 6'4 isn't ideal for most people.
I agree with cmillzz: "if I had an ideal range, it might be 5’11-6’3."
I'd actually say 5'10 to 6'2 for a narrower range.

I do agree that at least being 6'4-6'5 you won't have issues with the normal doorframes. 6'6+ is where real concern about aesthetics and health etc come into play.

5'9 though not a bad height is just a bit too low nowadays.
If you ask 20 guys what height they would like to be or what they feel is ideal, I bet most will say 5'11-6'3
With 6'1 and 6'2 most popular.
Don't think anyone would day 5'9 or even 5'10...
But everyone has their opinion!

@cmillzz said on 25/Jul/19
MPB is very nearly 100% genetic

Yes but the process that causes it can occur for some medical reasons or even environmental such as someone taking steroids and causing more conversion to DHT.

Also the process can be exacerbated and those genetically susceptible will get hardest.

It's almost like cancer or heart disease.
These are also largely genetic but you can have some influence on how severe it will be.

We are in a different era now where all these fortified foods , genetically modified foods, pollution in the air can really hit our bodies hard
Tunman said on 26/Jul/19
I guess there are some habits that contribute to some of the loss.I would say we aren't even conscious of some practices that may favor loss.Science is still at its beginning in that field.Once we will know the whole process hair goes by through life we may find a way to prevent the loss even before it starts.Obviously I imagine that there won't be as much money invested on that as we would get on health research which is understandable.
To look 17 at 38 is surprising to say the least.I mean there are signs that just betray the difference between adolescencts and people who crossed that period since 20 years.Maybe you're among the guys who still manage to keep a boyish face despite ageing but that's something really exceptional.Once in a french social show they brought a guy aged 39 who spoke about how he was often asked to bring his parents as people thought he wasn't yet 18.However he had no beard at all and most importantly a frame that didn't develop(no pectoral muscles),this besides the fact that he seemed quite short(not sure probably somewhere around 5'5-6).These physical features that occur generally through puberty will distinguish children from adolsecents then adolescents from fully grown adults(although beard is still misleading at times).Other facial features are probably what give the approxiamate idea of someone's age.One is lucky to look younger than his/her age by a few years but over 20 years?That's extremely rare
Bobby 178cm said on 26/Jul/19
Connor's a tall lad. I'd say he looks 6'1 there in his picture.
Csimpson6ft said on 26/Jul/19
@Canson i respectfully disagree, guys who are legitimately 6'5 can be 6'7 in some footwear but usually 6'6ish in most shoes and they can have problems with doorframes and having to duck underneath them quite a lot but i guess it depends on the height of the doorframe if its taller than yourself then you wont have to duck, but anyway i would say it actually is the start of too tall imo because 6'5 guys can even also struggle to fit in cars sometimes, i bet even 6'4 guys like yourself experience these problems sometimes, im not saying 6'4 and 6'5 are particularly bad heights they have advantages but being that tall can be problematic at times.
Importer said on 26/Jul/19
6ft is the line between above average and tall. But one would feel more tall than just above average at 6ft. @Csimpson6ft I wouldn't be surprised if someone guessed you at 6'2-6'3..:)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/19
I agree. If we're talking narrower, 5'11"-6'3" would be ideal for most guys.

Nik Ashton said on 24/Jul/19
If 6’0” isn’t a tall height then 5’6” isn’t small.


6'0 = above average but not all that tall ...just like how 5'8 is below average but not all that short

5'6 = short
ajax509 said on 26/Jul/19
He stands two feet behind the door frame, it's impossible to pin down his exact height. Anyway Connor looks a solid 6ft 1 in shoes.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jul/19
Oh dear, Connor! I've just refreshed my memory with another look at your picture, and I guess 6ft2 would be a bit impossible as the door frame is 6ft6! Sorry about that! πŸ˜‰
viper said on 26/Jul/19
I have thicker hair at 38 than 18.

Ive had the same person cut my hair since then and mentions it frequently.

I have had people just remark out of the blue how thick it looks.

@Miss Sandy Cowell it's ok so how tall do you think i look now then?

If 6’0 is in a tall range, it’s at the very very start of tall.

β€œOnly”? That’s quite a lot if you think about it.

Well he's standing a bit behind the door frame.
It looks 5 inches or so. Those shoes don't give more than .75-.8 inches I'd guess.

This is off topic but how many hours u spend infront of computer Rob and did u ever had dry eyes?
When i sad i have conjuctive i went to eye dr and it turned out to be dry eyes from computer i have to take some artificial tears that the dr told me to take and stay less on computer,i was told that more then 4 hours daily is considered alot.
Editor Rob
I try to take regular breaks, but I may get issues the longer I spend...long days in front of a computer (or doing gaming) isn't great on our eyes.

Best taking the Doctor's advice - actually most folk can reduce time spent online. Easier said than done though, even I still find lapses in time-wasting.

I saw some one claiming 6 feet is not tall but personally according to myself,it is tall and great height.not saying because i my self is 6 feet.i can feel taller lot of the times than just above may not be that tall but it is pobably may not be tall for dudes who are 6’3 ,6’4 or over but taller if you look population as a whole but ofcource it depends on countries,i feel like i am taller than 85/90 of the people and thats my personal opinion

Hi rob just curious about the fact that my morning height is 180.3 and minimum is 178.6-178.8 but in recent days i noticed that my morning height has shrunk to 179.9-180.1 these days.Did it mean i shrank at age 19? Is it even possible to shrank at this age??
Editor Rob
I doubt you've lost height. Some variation in morning height could be based on sleeping habits, hydration levels.
Jonathon174.6cm said on 25/Jul/19
Hiii Rob,
I am 18 years old. After coming to this site, I came to know that there is difference between morning and evening height. So I have measured exactly 174.6cm after being awake for 5-6hrs. What can I claim?
Is that height considered short among my age group in England or UK?
Editor Rob
It is likely you are 175-6 zone within 1 minute of wakening....

I think you fall into 'almost' 5ft 9 range. Many guys with your height would just round up to 175cm or 5ft 9, but it's up to you really.

Some might even round down to 174cm or 5ft 8.5...though, comparatively few would do that.

@ Nik - Any 'dawg' would make a good name, especially when sung by Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones' album 'Some Girls' has a grand example. It came out in 1978 and had some really DIFFERENT tracks on it, even Country-ish-type songs, complete with swearing!

Hey Rob!

My bruv just came in while the Beatles song 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da' was playing. I said to him, "1967?"

Being two years older than me, he knew better! He replied, "No! End of 1968, at the same time of the lift-off of Apollo 8!"

How's that for a memory? He puts mine to shame! πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

@ Nik - Actually, my Dad told me he'd have kicked her up the @rse! Cats being cheeky doesn't really entertain him. His 3 Burmese, (well, his wife's really), were usually impeccably behaved, save for the time when I picked up the pure brown one, Sophie, and she made a trickling of wee from the hallway all the way through the living room to outside! He wasn't amused, but I was!

I wiped it up - of course!

@Viper: I look relatively young in the face too especially when I cut my hair certain ways. I got carded for alcohol just in the last couple weeks and for a cigar when I bought it last week
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Jul/19
The difference from your head to the door frame looks bigger than a 5" difference (since you're around 6'1" in those shoes I'm assuming), but that could be due to the angle of the pic.

I'm not a trichologist, but having thicker hair probably means that it's less likely that you're going bald. I've always been told that I have relatively thick hair ever since I was a child, so I'm likely not going bald anytime soon. One of the early symptoms of balding is the thinning of hair.

Yeah it depends. Male pattern Hair loss like height is not all genetic.
Environment and lifestyle play a role
I think stress can exacerbate it in some people.
Other hair loss like thyroid or vitamin deficiency or alopecia areata are different than the testosterone hair loss.

40s is pretty common for men to lose a severe amount of hair. Your dad is like mine. Started at 40ish and by 50s leveled off

Some men start then stop then start again.
I'm almost 30 and had a bout of loss throughout mid 20s. It's stopped now that I'm on treatment and it's a bit thicker now. Goes to show it come on all of a sudden and go easily unnoticed if you dont pay attention.
Most presidents do not age well throughout their tenure in office as the nature of the job is very stressful.


16 is very young to get gray hair. Though I knew an Asian guy in my high school who had a few. I do not know if it was due to vitamin deficiency issues.
But yeah at least you can color it!

Hair loss is not just from mother's side though it may be less likely to follow the male relatives on mother's side than father's. Like height, genetic hairloss is complex and to a certain degree manipulated by environment.

All men lose hair it's just a matter of when and how much.

ajax509 said on 24/Jul/19

Back in the day you claimed 180.9cm peak out bed and 178.4cm bare minimum, later on you downgraded yourself to 180.3cm and 177.7cm respectively. Now my question: Was there sth odd with the first measurement?
Anyway going with 'just over 5ft 10' is good for you IMO!
ajax509 said on 24/Jul/19
I'm like 178.9cm first thing in the morning and 176.9cm at my normal low. Reach is about 176.4cm IMO still ok. But if you look at the NBA you will find athletes with 10" reach advantage over their own towering height. I assume in taller men there's probably a wider range.
Do I remember correctly Greg claimed 181cm out of bed with 178.4cm at low and a reach of just over 187cm?

Would guess my shoulder width is pretty normal with slightly shorter arms and smaller hands.
c-mo said on 21/Jul/19
Rob I am 178.3cm or so out of bed and 175.9cm in the evening

my reach is roughly 174.6 cm (from fingertip to fingertip) . is that normal ?
Editor Rob
It's slightly shorter than your height.

Remember wingspan can be influenced by your shoulder width. You could have the same type of arm length from shoulder to tip of fingers as somebody who has narrower shoulder width but longer arms.

And my hair has actually gotten thicker with age. The person who cuts my hair just can't get over how crazy thick my hair is.

Lol Canson is gonna freak out when he sees that first grey. At least I've gotten that out of the way. My dad had grey hair real young.

You usually get male pattern baldness from your mother's father. Luckily my mom's dad had a thick head of hair. But it doesn't explain how my cousins have lost some hair, though their dad "My Uncle" is bald. I guess you can still get the make pattern bald Gene from your dad as well
viper said on 23/Jul/19
Lol Canson has no grey hair yet I have some and I bet I look 20 years younger than him in the face.

I still get carded for alcohol eating with my parents at 38, and some people peg me as young as 17. Yet I got my first grey hair at 16.

I lucked out because it's easy to color your hair some. A little hard to make the face younger.

@ Christian - Hi! The only time I ever felt tempted to try another height site was the first time Celebheights was down. It was so boring that I rather watched TV.

I found CH late September of 2016, and, impulsive that I am, I left two short comments that very day. A few days later, I was interested in the height of another Celeb, but this time he wasn't there, but he is now! I wasn't unduly concerned and started rooting around for all sorts of actors and musicians. Then I came across the comments I had left on my last visit, and I was very excited! The only website I had properly visited had been a Liv Tyler fansite, and our comments went up immediately. I can't see any of Liv's fans possibly leaving horrid messages, but I did once come across someone who'd written something untoward about Salma Hayek, and, boy, did I have something to say about that! She is a very clever lady - and mighty beautiful, not unlike Liv, but standing together, there's a huge height difference, as you can imagine. There was no need to put her down for it though....

Initially, I was very worried about my sudden height loss, and I had reason to be, as I needed a hip replacement operation. What I'd like to do one day is to go to the very same Tesco weighing scales, late in the evening, and see how much height I have regained; I fear my Dad might have been overly nice to me when he said I am 5ft1.75, morning height. I still can't reach things I could before, at 5ft2.5!

Cheers Christian! xxx πŸ˜πŸ‘
Tunman said on 23/Jul/19
yeah,most important is definitely health.I hope I'll make it to my 60's as healthy as my father.
Interestingly,my mother told me he managed to keep all his hair until he was 45 (but possibly loss started by 42-43),what's sure is that by early 50's it was already very advanced,probably 60%+loss.Yet today at nearly 67 he still has some hair though probably no more than 10% of the initial quantity.So surprisingly the most important loss was in a quite short period,roughly 8 years and mainly in the mid late 40's.
Also I'm not sure if I could give credit to this but many spoke about how stress (mental of course) could cause hair to turn grey.Many spoke of Obama as an example actually Click Here

Hi rob, if a guy stays straight with back shoulders and legs and keeps his eyes looking forward the sky (so up) and the guy wears a pair of classic converse all stars and the top of his ears measure perfectly 1.73/5’8 then barefeet how tall he might be? Perhaps a weak 6’ like 1,82?
What will be your listing?
Editor Rob
Very close to 6ft would be my estimate...unless the person had a small skull like 8.5-8.75 inches...but if over 9 inches then 182 zone at least
macps said on 23/Jul/19

Sakz said on 22/Jul/19
@A-dawg You don't have to stand out to be considered tall. 6'0 is usually considered tall because it's comfortably taller than the average person (assuming they're around 5'9). However that's obviously excluding the countries where the average is higher.

I've known this site since 2013, and what partially drew me to this site is because I realized that most listings of celebrities' heights on Google and other sites were inaccurate. The other reason is that I got a lot of remarks about my height so started to become interested in height. I didn't start commenting on here until 2016 though.

@ A-dawg - 6'0" is still jolly tall in the UK! 🐩!
Bobby 178cm said on 21/Jul/19

I'm 5'10 and I'd definitely feel the difference if I were 2 inches taller. I still think the threshold of tall begins at 6'0, but you're so used to being 5'11.25 (If you were measured 181, that's 5'11.25, unless you meant 181.5 or something), so you're 1cm and change smaller than 6'0 or really are 2cm under 6'0. For you, you'd probably not see much difference being that much taller, but if you were suddenly 6'1, you'd feel the difference right away.
avi said on 21/Jul/19
@Tunman said on 19/Jul/19

Yes that's true it's mostly genetic but it's genes that causes the hair to be sensitive to the strong form of testosterone called DHT.
Things can exacerbate this process prematurely (perhaps turning on the switch earlier than it would be).
There are other things that make

As for gray I'm not sure if if something similar can happen where it can be premature due to environmental factors.
It's normal to start losing hair in 20s though some guys have it in teens but that's not too common. I thought gray was 30s though some of my peers had it in late teens maybe vitamin deficiency or something.

And I agree wrinkles aren't fun either. For men gray or hair loss is a very acceptable thing and at 50-60+ most don't care anymore.
Wrinkles are really a pain.

But as you say health is most important.

Rob is 6 foot even regarded tall nowadays? I'm 23 from the UK and for the first time I got measured since in my life and I am 181cm (5'11.5). Finding out I'm 2 cm under 6 foot I was shocked. Because all my life I've seen myself as average and no one has ever described me as anything but, yet people say 6 foot is tall. If I was 2cm taller I don't think my perspective would change much. 6 foot guys don't really stand out much from you're average 5'9/5'10 guy so I don't get it. In my opinion tall starts at 6'2/6'3 plus.
Editor Rob
Going from 181 to 183 would mean you are now taller than all the guys 181, plus another couple cm taller than every other person...I'm sure some people would notice a difference, although I don't think many people actually pay attention.

I think, Rob, that a big reason why your Celebheights has become such a success is the warmth in the way it is presented. When you reply to us, we now get what I call 'A Rob', that picture of you that appears whenever you give somebody a reply, and this adds to the friendliness of the site. It's part of human nature to want to know how people look and sound, and you do the both of these things with your enjoyable videos, and if anyone hasn't seen any yet, I cannot recommend them highly enough!

One of the most exciting things this site has to offer is your Comparison Pictures. So many of us are movie-mad and, in my case, rock star mad, and we pay good money to see these bands, and though they do lack the personal treatment, the memory of a good concert stays with us for ever.

Cheers Rob and carry on the excellent work with this very individual, warm and unique website. Wishing you and Jenny and all the visitors a great weekend!

Myself said on 20/Jul/19
That's pretty nice, I wish I could reach that age without having white hair, but I doubt it will happen!
I don't see anymore those 3-4 white eyebrows that I had, weird...but anyway, since men are more likely to get white/grey hair than women, and my mother got it so early, it probably means that I'm very likely to get it soon either way.
I wonder if there is a correlation between blonde/dark hair and either grey or white hair; maybe if you are blonde you tend more to the white, and vice versa?
Javier said on 19/Jul/19
Hey Rob. If the top of my 172 cm brother's head is up to my eyebrow and my 162 cm mom is up to my lip how tall am I? Also Rob is it possible for height to look different in a mirror than when you see someone? Sometimes people who I think are the same height as me are often 5 centimeters shorter than me in a mirror. Thanks!
Editor Rob
You would expect to be around 180-1cm range based on what you said, but that depends on just how big your head is in person!
Tunman said on 19/Jul/19
Actually it's true that testosterone plays a major role for hair loss,but genetics also do,I guess it's like for heart problems,when a gene is running in the family although of course the two things can't have a further comparison since the first doesn't involve complications.
Another unlucky dude about hair loss was one whose hair receding was extremely advanced as early as 23 although still not bald and looking roughly 25-27.The luckiest dude on this matter was a 62 year old who despite having a pony tail since over 40 years (I brought the hair subject with him) has still all his hair and the ponytail itself and not that much grey hair.
The worst aging indicator remains wrinkles if you ask me,that's probably what's noticed first on a face along with hair.I once saw a 13 year old boy who had already 2 visible lines on his forehead (expression wrinkles though) while there was a woman who managed to have no visible wrinkle by 43.Obviously there are natural changes on the face as we age that we can hardly change like skin losing elasticity,having hairy ears and so on.Still I would say that the best thing is to age well on the health level
Jdubbz said on 19/Jul/19

I had a similar growth pattern to you (6’2.5 at 18, 6’3-6’3.25 at 19, 6’3.75-6’4 at 20), but I somehow gained 2 inches after 21. Late growth definitely seems to be more common in taller people.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Jul/19
Prescription medications can definitely stunt growth unfortunately. I have a cousin who's around 11 who has taken Ritalin for years due to ADHD, and he's very small for his age, even though both of his parents are around average height. (5'4" mom and 5'8" dad)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Jul/19
I find it insane that some men start to go gray in their 20's. I know one guy who was 28 at the time and partially had gray hair, but that's the only 20's guy that I've seen with gray hair as far as I can remember.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Jul/19
@ Rob - Software and technology is still fairly new to me, but I can't help but notice that practically every site I poke my nose into suggests that you update now, or perhaps put it off for a bit, which is usually the option I take! Running your own website leaves the responsibility all down to you. I remember it happening just once before, and as it was when I was bed ridden, I was chronically bored that day! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
Editor Rob
Sometimes I like the idea of being more anonymous online, and pre 2005 I am not sure there are any photos of myself online. On a site like this, people are generally anonymous, unless they willingly reveal information. I still don't know much about some long-term visitors, beyond a name and location and maybe self-declared height.

But with this website, becoming the face of it means giving up anonymity. I don't mind it now, I actively get my face out there ;)

I do recommend being cautious about information you reveal to websites. People divulge far too much, sometimes unintentionally.

Because of the foods. More hormones in it and fortification in terms of vitamins and nutrients.
The age of menarche for girls declined tremendously which means they mature faster in height as well.

I call some of this "unnatural" growth or genetically engineered growth.

Fourteen months flies by the older you get. Manelia is still very kittenish in her appearance and mannerisms. It's Erramius's 12th Birthday today, and at six weeks three days, she is the youngest kitten we've ever had. She grew into a duplicate of her white Mum. Her Dad and her two siblings were jet black.

Thank you very much for your good wishes Rob! I still feel hot and cold and my headache is horrific. 😝 I imagine that I need a course of antibiotics. This is the fifth day of the blasted illness! What fun - AND no telly! 😒

Tree and Nik - There was a boy in my class who went by the name of Tree. His real name was Simon, and he shot up in height in the last couple of our school years to be really rather tall. He shared my taste in music. I knew because he decorated his books with the names and logos of his favourite bands. He had blond curly hair and lived near to our Geography/English teacher. This teacher, Mr Vaughan, was about the best teacher any kid could have wished for. He drove all the kids who lived in his locality to school AND he took PE - not bad for a man well into his fifties. He had so much to talk about. He even saw the volcano Krakatoa blazing away, though technically it was dormant.

In the fifth year, he brought me right of my shell with English. He had 5 children of his own and classes full of them at the school where he taught. He talked about The Two Ronnies in his lessons and much more besides. I recall how much admiration he had for both the Ronnies. Mr Vaughan told us that Ronnie Barker wrote under the pseudonym of Gerald Wiley, and he had much admiration for little Ronnie as he sat in his huge chair digressing from subject to subject. Apparently, it was done pretty much off the cuff.

I'd like to know that today's children have an equally enthusiastic teacher, because what they teach us comes back throughout our lifetimes. My brother and myself still have conversations about Mr Vaughan. Not bad for all those years ago.

If any of his children should read this, I'd like them to know that their Dad is remembered with great affection.

Hi Rob!

Since Sunday night, I haven't been very well. I have a nasty headache which I can't shake off, and I was trembling that night and have a temperature. Then the following day my TV packed up, 😭 so now when I am actually up, it's either music or nothing. I don't like sitting around without a background noise! I shall try my best to squeeze out some comments, and I'm determined to get back to Bobby today.

Manelia is 14 months old today and she still looks like a kitten, but she's a bolshy little cat, and starts on the others. Mind you, she is scared of Ulercy because he's so huge!

Our little Iberow died last Wednesday, a week ago. My brother told me when I got up. I'd have preferred to have been able to have comforted her in her final moments.

All the very best to you and Jenny,

Sandy XX
Editor Rob
That's a shame to hear you have been having a tough time, I hope you feel better soon, and 14 months seems to have went by quickly, I remember you mentioning manelia and it wasn't that long ago when I heard the name, at least it doesn't feel that long!

Actually it looks like that white hair somehow disappeared in the last days...maybe it was stress related or it just fell off.
My mother had her first white hair at 18 and my grandmother had tons of white hair by 30, so yeah, I won't be very lucky in this aspect anyway (also considering my hair is blondish, so more prone to this type of issue, I guess?).
But yeah, I do claim 193 cm now...a week ago I've been guessed at over 2 meters (again), and generally everybody inflates by like 3-6 cm, like this guy that was about 1 inch shorter than me that claimed 196 cm, so yeah...

I also noticed this in some cases.

Mostly in men starting at 6'1-6'2. My friend who claims 6'3 but probably 6'2ish has some gray hairs and aged a bit faster.

The hair loss is caused by higher testosterone (specifically DHT type of it) which accounts for body hair as well. possibly this is linked to the height increase as well from teenage years. Too much testosterone will fuse growth plates though.
Another common observation I noticed is these individuals are already close to adult height at 13-14.
My friend for instance was at least 6'0 when in 8th to 9th grade.

Obviously this depends on genes and specific environmental circumstances.

Buts it's always interesting to note.

Hey Rob,

Did you know the maximum height restriction for US military is 6'8?

I guess it makes sense not only as custom uniforms would be needed but for health and practicality reasons.

For the Marines it's 6'6. I think average height or a bit under in the military is a plus compared to too short or too tall.

Though I think even people 6'8+ (though not many anyway) should still have chance to be a guard or do desk work maybe not combat.

I never knew that...some jobs need to require height ranges or minimum/maximums, like air hostess.

What's interesting is the UK abandoned height for Police - I see quite a few police officers (male) shorter than myself.

Technically you can call yourself 193cm if you're 192,5-6 at your low.Btw even that height is very tall.To have aging signs that early is probably more detestable though.I knew a guy back in 2008 who was few days shy of 22 and already bald,except for some white and grey hair on both sides,funnily he was also in that 6'4 range give or take few mms.Easily looking 35+at that age I swear I almost looked like his child despite being only 2 years younger(I had only thin facial hair back then).

@ Rob - It's one taste I don't want to repeat, but it was infinitely better than using Deep Heat!

We have loads of foxes round our way too, and if it wasn't for the cats, I'd conduct a few experiments with plastic toys to find just how alluring they find them. I have plenty of spare dolls which I don't display anymore, because now I only like the collector variety - for adults. Having said that, I would love to find a children's home which accepts them, but I'm sure I could spare one for the foxes, if I could be sure that they wouldn't attack or frighten the cats, but I can't, so that's simply not going to happen, unless I'm round my Dad's. (He no longer has any cats). The naughty little canines used to enjoy tearing our shoes to smithereens, so we had to stop keeping them in the porch, and then they'd leave smelly souvenirs behind to boot! Yes, the pun was intentional. Boots were their favourites - my boots to be precise! 😣


Cheers Rob and all! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Hey Rob!

I knew this would happen sooner or later and then finally last night....

Well, it was tooth-cleaning time and I grabbed hold of my tube of toothpaste and started cleaning away. Then I realised that I was using my antiseptic cream. It tasted revolting! Now I have taken it OUT of the bathroom - for good!

Wishing you, Jenny and everybody on Celebheights a very happy weekend.

That's not the kind of taste you want in your mouth 😁

Jenny is terribly upset about the Foxes around our bit - they stole 'Sammy the snake', who has been lying in wait for visitors outside our house for years.

Fractured vertebrae can make you lose height.

Rob,not a height question but out of curiosity what's the hottest weather you ever witnessed in Scotland?I saw it was 19Β°C in Edinburgh Yesterday which is something that would never happen in Tunisia in July.I remember an exceptionally hot summer in 2009 where temperature reached 48Β°C(although the record is allegedly 55Β°C in southern Tunisia back to 1931).Also don't you find it annoying that it rains too often?You know I've nothing against rain but sometimes you would like to enjoy some evenings outside,right?
Editor Rob
For us 26-27 would be a very warm summer day. It would be very rare to hit 30 here. It does rain a fair bit, but you get periods of great weather too...just not often!
cmillzz said on 11/Jul/19
come on, you’re only a few mm off 193cm at your lowest. I’d consider you pretty much a legit 193.
Tunman said on 11/Jul/19
although it's not the most professional measurements,probably most are within few mms if not correct.As long as you have a reliable device for measuring it's always fine,anyways much better than those electronic stadios which bring totally fake heights.I still wonder how they tested them if ever they did.
The problem is that once someone gets a machine measurement it's practically impossible to reasonably argue over the truth.Someone like G could have easily been 172-3 under one of them.
72Kg is very thin for a 193cm but sometimes (rarely though)I see some dudes in that 6'3-4range who won't exceed 70-75kg.They just have naturally a thin built,probably like yours

I've grown like 1.3 cm from 20 to 21, but now it seems like i haven't grown at all in 1 entire year...I may have had a 1 mm bonus about 4-5 months ago, but I'm not sure.
Now I'm 194.7-8 cm out of bed and about 192.7-8 at a low (while a resting sitting low is like 193.4-6), although I can go as low as 192.5-6 sometimes. I wish I just had another one of those little 3 mm bonuses...but I'm 22 too now, since yesterday! Getting older, white eyebrows appearing already and not gaining any height anymore! I'm doomed and I'll never be a legit 193 cm :(

I'd say 5ft 7.5 if I had those stats, but also you could go with 'about/almost 5ft 8' if you wish.
Andrea said on 9/Jul/19
Here's an interesting clip where people get measured under a stadiometer: Click Here
It's funny that even before getting measured, some of them still "lie" about their height by a noticeable amount... I mean, from what I could understand, the first girl claims 181 (and she gets measured just under 178), the second girl 173 (and she gets measured 165-6!!!), the bald guy 166 (quite reasonable), the following guy 180 (and he actually gets measured almost 182!), the other guy 183 (and he gets measured a bit under 182 too), and the two presenters 177 and 170 (she gets measured 168).
Of course there's always room for error (seeing how sometimes the bar was pushed down), but still... The girl claiming 173 is laughable! I couldn't tell whether she was purposefully exaggerating and joking about that or not, but if she was being serious... LOL!
Editor Rob
I think the measurements were ok apart from bending the stadiometer for the 166 girl.

At least they actually got a stadiometer out for it, I wish some Uk/US shows would do similar ;)
spainmen192cm said on 8/Jul/19
Rob, I measured myself a couple of days ago, I found that Im now 194.8-9 out of bed (after 10 hour sleep) the day before I was 193.2 at 9:30 (in the night) during that day I only had 2 hour sleep but during the afternoon I sleep around 3 hours, from 5pm to 8pm

In Resume, Im around 6ft4 now, which is strange because im already 23 but it seems like during this year (September-July) I have grown a little bit. Considering I was 6ft2.75 at 18, 6ft3.25 at 19 6ft 3.5 at 21-22

There are some cases where guys at 23-25 have some final growth?

Phisically, I look quite slim for my height (72-73 kg) and younger than my real age, I eat what I want and I dont put kg. And my father is 6ft6 (maybe that has something in relation)
Editor Rob
Could have been a final portion of spine becoming is very rare to have any noticeable growth at 23.

What do you think about taking some measurements of her and making her start a new postural routine (exercises + stretches + general posture correction) for some months, to see if she can regain her lost height? It would be an interesting experiment and you could upload it on YouTube to show that it's possible (or not, in case it didn't work).
I understand that maybe she doesn't care and isn't in a position where she can't change her bad habits so easily...but still, in case it's possible, it would be interesting! (And good for her health of course)
Editor Rob
I tried to help her with some basic techniques in the past, but it's getting into and sticking with a habit that can be a struggle for people.

Saying that, we have managed to keep up a daily short exercise and long walk routine, so that is one habit that has stuck...maybe I will try again in the future to see if we can do some basic stretches for her back.

Matt99 said on 5/Jul/19
Rob I found that the seca 213 is tricky whilst freestanding with the bar, yesterday evening I kept getting undermeasured but I also tried the Frankfurt plane method, keeping my eyes as straight as possible instead of unintentionally raising them a little bit and keeping the bar as steady as possible and I get 176cm (wasn’t a straining day) on it and 175.9cm-176cm on my wall. This is why I think a wall measurement is more realiable as I think sometimes it can be a hit or miss at the doctors, it can be quite unlucky because it might not be installed properly at the base or it might not be read out properly because of eyelevel, like if a 5’5 doctor read out a legit 6’1 man he or she wouldn’t probably see the real number if they stood bare feet to read it. I know the stadiometer is supposed to be balanced against a wall but you never know at the doctors. When I measured my brother I said he was 184.5 using a wall and tape measure and he looked from his perspective and corrected me by an 1/8 and he was right in the end.
cmillzz said on 5/Jul/19
Rob, if going by absolute maximum morning height after a long sleep 20 seconds out of bed, and extreme low height, I almost feel as though the difference between the two is more than 2cm on average. Maybe even closer to 3cm possibly? But if just going by regular morning height and regular evening height, it’s probably closer to 2cm.
jayp said on 4/Jul/19
Hello rob and everybody if I’m 5ft9 175cm or some mms over 6-6.5 hours out of bed whilst just being at home not doing that much is it safe to call myself 5ft 9 or not
Editor Rob
6 hours is a fair time of day to go with a height claim, so even though you might fall under 5ft 9 a bit later in the day, for a good chunk you are around it
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 3/Jul/19
@Mr.Heighty. I forgot to tell you earlier in my post that differences between morning out of bed and night before the bed is less than inch (2.54cm) for sure. Mostly (0.75 in through 0.9 in) 1.7 cm to 2 cm,, differences I would say between morning and night depending on the activity and works and jobs you are doing throughout the day...
avi said on 3/Jul/19
@Editor Rob

I saw your reply about Jenny's small loss.

This is similar to me I think. 5'11.8 basically touching 6'0 maybe few yrs ago now 5'11.5 maybe 5'11.6 at low...

I sit most of day and lean forward looking at computer.

Would a .3-.4 of "loss" be possible?
Due to compression?

I started doing some stretches and sitting better when I can and will monitor over the next 6 months or so see if measure taller

Editor Rob
Her loss is more like a half inch in her 40's.

In Jenny's case, the loss is obvious looking at her upper back/neck from 10 years ago compared to last few years...and it really is down to craft work.

You may have lost 0.2 to 0.3 inch yourself, especially since you noted your measurements.

Another question: As I haven't seen your wife Jenny's height lately on your youtube video, wondering whether she has lost mm of height from Jan 2018 when her height was 5ft 7 3/4 172.2cm or still same as from 2018 January. I do know womens do loose more height than men when they become older... been wanting to know if Jenny is still 5ft 7 3/4 or she's now at 5ft 7 half like 171.5cm ish or not... been wanting to know forawhile... I know you are still same from that time frame, hasn't even lost mm as of yet....
Editor Rob
I have not measured Jenny for a while. In fact, the stadiometer is gathering dust...but last time was many months ago and she was still pretty close to 7.75 so I think she's stabilised loss for the moment.

The nature of her craft work - which involves a lot of forward bending of spine/neck - means it is puts strain on the vertebrae.

Ey big Rob! I've already measured myself 175.5 cm being 14 hours on my feet and I also had a heavy training workout at the gym so I think is a low or extra low. So I'm going to bed now at 175.5 cm what height do you think I can get right after bed and what height I can claim when they ask me? I always like to be honest
Editor Rob
It seems fair to go with 176cm as you are likely over 177cm out of bed.

@ Tall In The Saddle - 1985 and 28 and now they're pensioners! It's quite frightening how quickly time flies.

So Tony has driven Dustin Hoffman and Buzz Aldrin in his cab as well? That's amazing! It makes me contemplate getting a job as a London Cabbie, but I'm too much of a chicken to risk driving around in case I run anyone, human or animal, over. I do admire people who drive though because it's something I can't do. Anything I can do, I think of as a piece of you-know-what. It's the way I was made, I suppose. I'm not in awe of people who are head and shoulders taller than me, because nobody can help his or her height. It's how you cope with it that matters, and how you tackle life's challenges. Tony Walker is gutsy to do the job he does as a cab driver. You never know who you're going to pick up! It could be Hannibal Lector even, oh it was, in the considerably more presentable package of Anthony Hopkins! It's good to know he's a thoroughly nice fellow; you need strength of personality to cope well with fame.

I will certainly be having a look at the U-Tube backlog of the series in discussion. It won't be totally new to me, but in order to be able to relate to the characters featured, it would be nice to see them growing up!

Cheers Tall In The Saddle!

Hey Rob, how do I know if I’m 3.5 inches taller than someone? How about if I’m 5.5 inches taller than someone? Where would I look for 3.5 and for 5.5 on the person?
Editor Rob
If the person has flat hair, and you feel your eyes are a bit above their head, then you might be between 5-6 inches taller.

If you were looking at the start of their hairline you could be at least 3 inches taller.

@ Sandy Cowell - That's very interesting, certain words and actions can make dogs bark their heads off and a barking dog can make a real racket! It would be interesting to know why saying "catsssss" in a certain way makes some dogs bark so much!

πŸ—£ "Catsssss!"! 🐩 "Woof woof barkety bark!"!
πŸ—£ "Catz!"! πŸ• "Bark bark wooferty woof!"!
πŸ—£ "Chewsssss!"! 🐩 "Woof bark barkety (autocorrect tried to change it to barkly or barkley!) woof!"!
πŸ—£ "Treatz!"! πŸ• "Woof bark wooferty bark!"!

Rob, you're brilliant in estimate height. My uncle peak use to get 6'3.5" from his doctor in the morning and he aware that he was more a legit 6'3.25" but claim 6'3 all the time and nowaday he develope some hunches he can look to be strong 6'2 plus range but he still manage to keep up posture he is closer to 6'3 when standing straight really not shorter than Chris Hemsworth in person. Last year i heard he had a afternoon physical which get 190.2cm from a back face wall measurement and at age 62 which is lucky he only lost a 3/8th inches.
Editor Rob
With older people, sometimes it can be hard telling if their posture is poor or if they have kyphosis and they are standing well, but their upper back/neck has more curvature.

@ Connor Simpson - it's great to hear from you, I hope you are OK.

@ Rob - How tall is Philip Serrell please?
Editor Rob
I would have thought maybe 5ft 7

@ Nik - When my German Grandmother's dog, Putzi, piddled on the carpet, she got such a telling off that she whimpered. My Mum stood up for her, saying that she was long overdue a walk. I was crying! I think I was eight. Putzi was a white dog with tanned ears, and she looked like she was wearing ponytails. She had a stumpy little tail which wagged like lightning, and when we opened chocolate bars, which my Grandmother would buy for us when she was out shopping, Putzi knew it, and could hear the packets open on the other end of the flat and would come running! And it was a BIG flat!

I would feed her large portions of my dinner, but she didn't like boiled potatoes, which was a shame as neither did I!

I only ever tell my cats off for over-enthusiastic fighting. Other than that, they don't ever get scolded for anything. Manelia, tiny as she is, loves fighting, which can endanger her, so I have to keep her occupied with toys. Jim bought her a toy on a string and she broke the string off. She still plays with it though. I have ordered her a new one.

I'm watching 'The Chase' right now. Someone didn't know that the first man God breathed life into was Adam! She said Moses. Arghhhh NO! Then there has just been a question as to who played Richard the Fourth in 'Blackadder', and the guy said Brian Blessed. It was, of course, Peter Cook. Richard the Fourth indeed! There was no such King! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The last Richard, Richard the Third, was slain at the Battle of Bosworth Field, thereafter being succeeded by Henry the Seventh, the first Tudor King, in 1485. No, Dickie-boy didn't fair very well at all and now if you call someone a Richard, it's a term of abuse! (Richard the Third, which rhymes with ⬆️urd!πŸ’©) A Richard the Lionheart is cockney rhyming slang for fart! He was Richard the First, by the way.

That's all for now! 'Emmerdale' has just started.....

Cheers Nik! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ“Ί xxx Cheers to your Mum as well! πŸ˜˜πŸ’ xxx

Click Here Rob, my cousin in white dress is 5'11.25" (In 0.6" flats) so could you guess how tall is my uncle (tallest) ?
Editor Rob
He seems like he could be easily over 6ft 2 there, but then he has more shoes, a bit nearer, though older age...
Connor Simpson said on 25/Jun/19
Rob I shaved my head completely bald today, you certainly wouldn't over measure yourself if you don't have any hair right?
Editor Rob
Unless you go on your tip toes or don't make the bar touch your head, I think you are safely recording an accurate height!
Nik said on 24/Jun/19
@ Sandy Cowell - You are so right, dogs react to the tone of people's voices too! Maybe cats and dogs don't pick up on words that are hidden within other words and it's not just words that they take notice of when you speak to them, it's the tone of your voice and how you say different words! I can imagine that they would respond differently if you said "Nip!" in a very excited voice to how they would if you said it in an angry voice, you will sound excited when you say "Nip!" and because of that your cats will get excited too! I bet that repeating the word "Nip!" several times will get an even more positive response from them too! I sometimes think with animals that they would get excited about having any treat or a certain treat if you said any word in the right way, particularly if they knew that a treat was in close proximity to them!
Through my experience I can tell you that dogs sulk a lot when they are told off, also they often stop doing the thing they are told off about for a short period of time before going back to doing the same thing again, and again!

Cheers Sandy!

@Sandy - A super sized Hannibal Lecter with an even bigger appetite is a scary thought. Fava beans and chianti anyone? Don't know how to type the creepy sound he made next.
Tony has also driven the likes of Buzz Aldrin and Dustin Hoffman to name another 2 - maybe they go out of their way to book the most famous London Cabbie, Lol. I started watching from 28 up released 1985 - they played all preceding episodes in promotion of the ultimate airing of 28 up - pretty sure you can find all episodes online.

Hey Rob. I wanted to know what is the most perfect/ideal height for a man and a woman in your opinion?and what is the ideal height gap between couples?please answer
Editor Rob
Nature has given men an overall advantage of 4-6 inches over women, which I'm sure many men like...there are still a significant proportion of women who also prefer having a man at least several inches taller than themselves.
Nik123 said on 23/Jun/19
Yo Rob, what are your thoughts on this. Growing up I was always tall/above average for my age. My dad side of the family is kind of tall and I looked like him. Yet I barely grew during puberty. I stopped growing at 14/15 at 5'8. This height I get measured at doctor. I know it could be genes but could it have been all the adderall I took from 14 onwards. The doc even said I'd probably be around 5'11/6.
Editor Rob
There are factors that could inhibit growth, but time spent worrying about it in adulthood is wasted.
Matt99 said on 23/Jun/19
Rob how much can hair add whilst measuring? Thick hair for example. Does it still count for height?
Editor Rob
Hair can vary tremendously from a very short 1/8th to 1/4 style to 4-5 inches worth.

Of course when measuring we should flatten it completely.

Hi Rob,

I'm interested in seeing if its possible I can marginally increase my height without resorting to LL surgery.

I'm just wondering, have you ever come across this site? Click Here

I don't think the site is a scam as he's not selling any products rather claiming by the use of science, mainly dietary changes, supplements, inversion tables, ankle weights and stretching exercises that people can increase their height by 1-2cm.

I've read a study about Glucosamine adding 2-4mm to a persons height over an 8 week period. I'm just wondering if you think its possible for a person to add 1 or 2cm naturally? (even if its only on a temporary basis)

I'm 173cm in the morning, 172cm after 3/4 hours and then a very gradual decrease finishing at 171.5cm before I go to bed.

If I can add even half a cm or more, finishing at say 172cm, I would be delighted. If I can feel I'm not living a lie by claiming nearly 5'8 or 5'8 outright rather than uttering the words 5'7.5 that would be great. We're only talking small amounts here obviously, but when you're on the cusp of what is considered short and the start of average then I guess every cm counts.
Editor Rob
I think there is room for a fraction improvement in discs through exercise, but 1-2 inches if fairytale stuff. I suppose traction and inversion methods are replicating to a lesser extent the effects you have in space, so long-term and 1-2 hours a day inversion might give you a temporary boost more than a small fraction.

@ Tall In The Saddle - What a great picture of a legendary actor with Tony Walker, who was lucky enough to pick him up while working as a cab driver.

Anthony Hopkins looks positively King- Sized in comparison to Tony! I have only watched a couple of editions of the show, but you have definitely attracted my interest to watch more.

I wish I'd watched them since childhood now. Perhaps it'll be possible to catch early programmes from the 60's and 70's on U-Tube. Whoever had this idea must have had a moment of sheer inspiration. It sounds utterly heartwarming!

Cheers Tall In The Saddle!

Tall In The Saddle said on 22/Jun/19
Thanks Rob - yeah, Tony is quite a bit shorter than Hopkins who is no more than 5'8" these days and possibly even less. Understood Tony was small but never realised he was around 4'11"to 5 feet - probably due to his having a transcending 10 foot persona. Lol.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jun/19
@ Nik - I've known some dogs to whom when you say "Catsssss!" in a certain way, they start barking their heads off!

"Catsssss!" πŸ• "Woof woof barkety bark!" 😯😧🀫
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jun/19
@ Nik - I think it's more the way I say it! They wouldn't understand what a turnip is and would ignore the word nippy altogether. Yes, cats react to the tone of voice. They don't like to get told off when they're naughty and attack each other. Then I say, "Stop it!" on the top of my voice. Sometimes they do, but other times they just think "*** you!"

I used to say something rather stronger, but they have kids next door now!

Cheers Nik and enjoy your weekend and the same to your Mum too, of course.

@ Sandy Cowell - That is truly amazing, I wonder how they react when you say the word cat! It's wonderful that you say the shortened word (autocorrect tried to change it to *o*!) "Nip!" as well as catnip! Do they go crazy when you say the word catnip?

πŸ—£ "Nip!"! 😹!
πŸ—£ "It's a bit nippy round 'ere today!"! 😹!
πŸ—£ "I want some turnip with my dinner tomorrow!"! 😹!
