How tall is Rob Paul

Rob Paul's Height

5ft 8 ⅛ (173 cm)

I created CelebHeights.com in 2004 as an entertainment site about Celebrity Height. I measure 5ft 8 ⅛in at night, which is usually about the height I am in most photos with celebrities. In 2019, first thing in the morning, I measure around 5ft 8 ⅞in. For some height-related videos check out my Youtube channel. As of February 2019 I measure close to 5ft 8.25 at lunchtime and in this Video you can see my current weight.

@JamesB 172: I ask the same question almost every day.

Rob, at almost 5ft 9, I’ve dropped to about 160 lbs from over 180 this spring. As a 22-year-old male, am I near my ideal weight? Should I aim for a bit thinner?
Editor Rob
160 for your frame seems pretty ideal. I wouldn't go to 150 or anything.

@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.
Greg said on 14/Oct/19
@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.

"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.

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.

@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.
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
@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
Bobby 1.78m said on 14/Oct/19
@Sean 198cm

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.

Hey Rob!

My brother has just returned from the shops with chocolate bars. I told him that cats aren't meant to be fed with chocolate, but he still gave Ottica "The Greed" Cowell a square, which she didn't eat! Oh no! She prefers the classier stuff! In the time it took for me to take a trip for a Jimmy Riddle, she polished off my M&S strawberry chocolate bar with white chocolate coating.

I could have cried!

@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.

@ Rob,
After 9 hours out of bed and also walked for 5kms do you think we will get down to our regular low?
Editor Rob
I'd expect you to be near your low. If you slacked on water intake, always a chance of 1-2mm shy of typical low.

@Myself

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.
Sean 198cm said on 13/Oct/19
@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.
Myself said on 13/Oct/19
@Bobby
*Greg Is either slightly closer to 5'10, or right in between 5'10 and 5'11, but it doesn't really matter, as long as he doesn't put 5'11 in his nickname on this site...And to repeat myself one last time: I don't say it's not fair for you to claim 5'10 here, it's 178 that is not totally accurate by the site's standards.
Anyway, I'm done talking to you about this, not that it's something so important to me either way.
Myself said on 13/Oct/19
@Bobby
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.
Take care

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.
Canson said on 13/Oct/19
@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

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.

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.

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?

Yeah it can be closer to 5ft 10 7/8th

@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.

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: usually for me if I wake to 195.7 then I’d be 194.8 after an hour last time I measured then 194.4-.5 after two hours.i lose exactly half inch after two hours. Then after 5 I lose about 5/8”. Meaning if it were in your case it would put you around 5’9 7/8 (177.48 = 177.5). Lol it’s under half 😂 but rounds up to half. 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
*=5/8"

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. I’ve heard some say midday is halfway when it’s not. You’re right. It’s about 1/8” higher as what Rob has is the same
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
@Christian: for site purposes I guess I would use that 4 3/8.

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.
Canson said on 10/Oct/19

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.

@Canson
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
Greg said on 8/Oct/19

Greg said on 8/Oct/19
@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?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Oct/19

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.

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).

@ajax509, I said I am 176.5cm out of bed (morning) but 175.2 before bed (night), but If I could hold a good posture I measure as high as 175.7cm , btw I have short torso and I don't shrink much during the day.
Where is the problem ?
Canson said on 7/Oct/19
@Ajax509: imho it should be whatever your lunchtime (maybe 1/8” above the afternoon low which is Rob’s standard) or your afternoon low come out to in cm or inches. 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

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.

too much rounding on my part Canson ?

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.

In Height Request, I asked you about Canadian politician Jagmeet Singh and included a link. I was less curious about you adding him, though, and just wanted your honest opinion on wehther you think the 5'10" description might have been a bit too much?

No, that was Arthur and even Matt99 has said the same thing. Which is annoying, if we're gonna be going by extreme lows, the differences in stature between one another would stay the same.

I’m not sure why Arthur said it but Matt99 was a reputable and fair poster. He claimed his normal low and may have confused your normal with your extreme

too much rounding on my part Canson ?

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
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.
Canson said on 5/Oct/19

@ Canson

the 1-2mm over 5'9 is just an extreme low which I almost never measure

@ Bobby ...you are about 1.4cm or so taller than me ...if you are 5'10 (and I think you are 5'10 and should claim 5'10) then I can not be "just 5'9" . it doesnt make sense . 5'9 is 175.3cm ...I wake at 178.3cm and I am 177cm even after 1-2 horus out of bed and in the evening I am around 176cm or a bit under . I am a weak 5'9.5 guy if you want but I am not "just 5'9" ...5'9 would be a guy who is like 174.7cm at night or something

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

Isn't C-mo the same person who told Bobby that he should claim 5'9.5", yet gets upset when he's suggested to claim 176? (despite himself admitting to being 176 at his low, while Bobby's 5'9.75" at his low). If he did, then that's hypocritical of him.

@C-Mo

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.

I will never claim 176cm in metrics . never ever . "176-177" I would say but not only 176cm . I claim 177cm

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.

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”.

@Canson My intention was never to convince Greg to claim 'almost 5ft 10', I just wanted to show how moronic it is to advice c-mo to go with 5ft 9 flat. Thus, with same standards (taking into account their out of bed measurements (5ft 11 - 178.3cm)) 5ft 9.8 would be the logical claim for Greg!

In the shoes of c-mo I'd go with 5ft 9.5 imperial and 176cm metrics, as for Greg 5ft 10.25 and 178cm respectively.

If I rounded up the 1/8th, I'd be saying I am 5'9 7/8s, by that point may as well say I am 5'10. I think rounding up the 1/4 if you fall a 1/4 under is okay. A 1/4 is hard to see in person.

@Goel 175cm
I'm living in north eastern Tunisia (in fact greater Tunis region as we call it here).
Btw if I had to advice you about some interesting places to visit it would be
The old town (or Arab town)in Tunis and Hammamet in Nabeul governorate(north east)
Dougga in the north west if you like archeology and stuff like that
The coast or Sahel (mainly Sousse the city where I was born but also Monastir),the temperature is still a solid 30 degrees and some still go swimming
Djerba island in the south,is also very touristic.
Finally you also have the desert tourism in south west(although I've never been in that part of the country)
places you'd better avoid are:
poor suburbs of greater Tunis (quite insecure in terms of criminality)and Al Chaambi mountains which is the most dangerous region of the country,btw neither places are visited by tourists.
Hope you'll enjoy your trip

@Bisho
You're slightly above average globally though, although not by much. The average is anywhere between 5'6"-5'7".

@Tunman
Basketball players' heights (just like any other athletes) are boosted so they have a better chance of being scouted or drafted, because generally taller is seen as more athletic.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 29/Sep/19
@Bisho

The average at my university is maybe 5'9 for guys, so you might feel below average here. The only thing I can suggest is to wear elevator shoes or big boots. I hate to admit it, but a taller stature usually makes you feel more confident about yourself.
Canson said on 29/Sep/19
@Ajax509 and Greg: I think the proper rule of thumb here (if you don’t want to use your afternoon height) is to take your normal afternoon low and maybe add 1/8” to it to arrive at what Rob uses for his lunchtime measurement. While most of us tend to use our normal low, 5 hours by Rob’s method, would be about 1/8” above a normal low if the person doesn’t want to claim a normal low. So In this case, I’m guessing C-Mo would in fact be around 5’9 1/3 most likely or 5’9 3/8”. That’s prob enough to claim 5’9.5 and at least C-Mo admits he’s a very weak half like he said to me. But C-Mo is an odd case because he loses .9” which is more than Christian and I lose and we’re 8 and 7” taller respectively. But C-Mo said that he is heavy. Carrying lots of weight makes you lose height faster and you may lose more. I’m not exactly sure where Greg would fall but if it’s 5’10.25 to 3/8” then he likely would fall 5’10 3/8-1/2 at an “appropriate” 5 hour measurement. That’s definitely enough for 5’10 1/2” but at a low I agree both are closer to 5’9 and 5’10” respectively. Greg would be a stronger half than C-Mo would but not a full half. I think a weak half would be something like 1/4” and above maybe starts to look more of it. But Greg not as much as he would fall near where Christian or I would. Greg has said before he’s closer to 3/8 some days so he’s even closer to 1/2” than I am these days (although with me I don’t round to half anymore. I round down since I’m right in the middle most of the time). However I’m of the belief since I use my normal low like Christian said before, well 1/4” and up to 5/8” or 2/3” maybe, claim 1/2”. I think even at about 5/8 or 2/3” over you’d still look a bit weak to look 6’0” if you were 5’11 5/8 or 2/3” although claiming it is ok. In my case I fall maybe 1.5mm over the 1/4” mark some days but on a gym day I’m right at 1/4” and even on the more relaxed day it doesn’t take much to get down to 1/4” so 6’4.299 normal low absent the gym I claim 6’4” still. I mention these under normal activity. For someone who wakes up at 5am daily and goes through normal routine I feel that this is appropriate as most others here lose height at a similar pace (1/4” or 3/8” after first hour) and 3/8” or 1/2” after 2. If someone is losing less than that it means that they aren’t very active or are laying around or reclined which really doesn’t count because it’s “altered”. Just because a customary routine may be laying around part of the day the loss pattern wouldn’t be consistent. But Rob’s terminology and method get lost in transition. Rob is on his feet almost the entire time and comes down to his normal low or within 1/8” of it if he is. I tested it once myself and while I’m usually about 194 or 194.1 after 5 hours I was more 193.8/193.9 when I stood the almost entire time. I also tried what Christian did and jogged a couple miles on a Saturday not long after waking and I was at my low after 2+ Maybe 3 hours so someone saying they don’t lose as much in a period of time because they aren’t active or their lifestyle is different day to day or they lay around all day in a dorm room need to take what they are on a normal active day as opposed to a relaxed day which in my book doesn’t count since it’s not an accurate reflection of that person’s height. I classify all four of us as strong 5’9 (C-Mo) strong 5’10 (Greg) strong 6’4 (me) strong 6’5 (Christian). I would classify Jdubbz as “weak” as he’s around 197cm so he would be weak 6’6 (6’5.5-.75 range at a low) or Bobby since he’s around 5’9 3/4. Rob defines weak 2/3-3/4 at a low and I define it as 1/2-3/4”. Even Bobby is right on the line. If you go above 3/4” it’s a bit outside. I used to claim the 1/2 but because I was an athlete and a lot of athletes claim half I’ve noticed if they measure it barefoot. Now that I stopped, I find tracking by the half inch very odd so I round down. I wonder if C-Mo would lose less under different circumstances tho and maybe be more 5’9.3-.4 at a low as opposed to .2
Editor Rob
I go with 5ft 8 1/8th because I can get to that by lunchtime on active days. On less active days sure I might be nearer 5ft 8.25, but when it comes to meeting actors I'm going with what I know I'll be closer to...

As jenny and big alex will attest, on the old blue stadiometer at 1pm (after me/jenny were sightseeing from 8-12) he measured me 5ft 8.25 (so nearer 1/8th) then we were out whole afternoon and after 6pm again I got the same. I feel that's more representative of my height when I'm meeting actors at conventions.

Even moreso over the last 4 years when we have done a dealer table at events - we are arriving at the show nearly an hour before any event opens.

@Ajax you have the brain capacity of a rock, never mind that a rock is smarter than you. Where did you get me being under 5’10? 😂😂🥴 jeez man just because you’re not even 5’10 doesn’t mean I have to be. I’m almost 5’11, get your facts straight. C-mo is a legit 5’9 guy I’m willing to bet that he’d Edge you out. You’re probably not even a full 5’9, you are getting you’re facts confused it’s okay educated yourself with Big G’s Handbook of proper measurements it even comes with a special golden tape measure that uses double inches so you can freely claim 5’11 as a weak 5’9 guy 👍 and it counts because the tape measure said you are little buddy.

@Greg: while I agree with part of what you said, you’d be closer to 5’10” than 5’11” too. You’re close to what Christian and I both are in the range. Now you fall higher than C-Mo so 5’10.5 is probably more adequate for you being you’re 1/4-3/8”range. As for C-Mo he’d be closer to 5’9” than 5’9.5 afternoon height but it’s a very negligible difference and that may be as he alluded to because he carried extra weight on him. I don’t agree with Ajax in that you’re under 5’10 because you’re a strong 5’10”. C-Mo sorta is too but you’re closer to 1/2” than he is

To be honest, some of the data that comes out may turn out to be questionable.

It's like letting Big G or SaveUsY2J measure themselves 😁

Whilst I think it should be done independently, it's still a lot better not having any shoe measurements.

Hey Rob!

How many inches difference do there have to be before someone looks up or down to another person? This is of great interest to me! Thanks! 😁👍

Up close you should notice if there's like an inch difference in eyelevels, though when it gets to 2 inches it is much more obvious.

At university it may be viewed as short by a majority of other students and in some countries will fall into that category in general. However, there are many in which it would be viewed as average.

Tarinator said on 28/Sep/19
I commented on Tome Hiddleston’s page and said I was near 6’2” (6’1.75”) when in reality I am 6’0.25”. Must have been my psychosis. I can measure 6’0.75” in the morning and 5’11.75” in the evening so my height drops about one inch depending on the time of day (of course). Sometimes, my height fluctuates with the arrangement of the moon cycles. Sometimes I measure myself at 5’11.5” in the afternoons and a 6’0” in the morning. In the evening, I measure myself at 5’11”. I lose about one once throughout the day. Depending on the moon cycles I can lose or gain an inch which is a fascinating phenomenon to observe.

@ Rob - Funny that, because Jenny's not the only one! I've never been fond of cakes either, but I'd still muller them, pulling off the chocolate, the nuts and the cream and leaving the rest.

Of course, I'd get smacked for wasting food, so I would throw it down by the side of my chair (especially potatoes) and dispose of it later!

Hey Rob,

It's been a while. Hope you've been keeping well.

Anyways, I've noticed that frosted tips were quite popular in North America and possibly Europe from 1998-2003. It was the hairstyle in which the tips of the wearer's hair were dyed a certain color (blonde was a popular one) in contrast to their natural hair color. Many (though not all) frosted tips wearers also spiked their hair. Have you ever sported this hairstyle?
Editor Rob
I see more hair coloring in recent years than I remember 15-20 years ago...I can remember some of the frosted tips, though I don't think it was that prevalent in Scotland anyway.

⭐ I've just read my comment from earlier about being 'well over 5ft!' That will sound hilarious to most, but to me, that inch gives me a bit of leeway, a safety net, that it'll be some years before I'll be below 5ft again, which felt unbelievable to me because I was taller than that as a flat-chested 14-year-old!

Tunman said on 27/Sep/19
Quite nice to have BB players listed with shoes off.Btw I always wondered why the hell there was a need to boost these people heights when virtually they're among the biggest human beings.
Next goal would be to have that measurement say after at least 3 hours which would hardly leave 1cm to argue over.
But the real question is why ever measuring someone with shoes?It ain't a part of the body.On the same way it doesn't make sense to weigh someone with clothes on.I recently weighed myself at 132Lbs(with very light clothes) but rather 135-6 with normal ones and shoes on.I claim the former(60kg as we use that unit in my country)
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/19

ajax509 said on 25/Sep/19
If Greg classifies c-mo as 5'9, he should claim. No more than 'almost 5ft 10' for himself.

@c-mo Also, why do you state your out of bed height as 5ft 10 when you measure 178.3cm? First thing you're 5mm over the mark so closer to 70.25in.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

@ ajax

my out of bed height of roughly 178.3cm doesnt last long at all . even after 2-3 minutes I go down to 178.1cm or something and after about half an hour I am already down to 177.5cm . I consider my morning height to be 177.7cm or something instead of 178.3cm or even 178cm for that reason

I measured yesterday after a somewhat hard day being on my feet a long time and having gone to 2 grocery stores and back home by walking a long distance carrying a heavy bag with food and being awake for 12 hours or so . I was 175.8 cm roughly . I think my strong low is about 175.7cm on very heavy days and my low at more easy days where I mostly relax is 175.9 or maybe even 176 . but my general low is around 175.8 at the end of the day on rather active days

so I consider my range to be 175.8 - 177.8 or something like that . I dont count out of bed height and extreme low height much

the problem is that it is very hard to measure 1-mm exact . I have a metal bar which I use to measure on the wall (instead of a can) but when you measure that way I think you are losing 1-2mm because you raise your arm/arms and cant stand fully straight . and on the stadiometer I knock off 2mm but the problem is that I am heavy and I think it is possible that the ground of the stadiometer where I stand on might compress a little bit . and it also depends how hard to press the thing of the stadiometer on your head etc

but yeah 175.8 - 177.8 is roughly my range and out of bed about 178.3

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/19
Hey Rob! Early this morning before it was light, I got dressed and made my way over to the swimming baths to find out my height. I had been up all night watching films (well since 12.30!) nipping in and out of the kitchen for tea, so I don't think that I was a typical morning height. The time was 6.32, so I had been up for 6 hours. I am 5ft1/(155cm), which goes to show that Tuesday's shoulder-to-shoulder measurement, or indeed any, are not reliable.

I must say, I'm quite pleased. It could have been much worse, after what I was told on Tuesday.

Cheers Rob!

@Rob,

Check this out:

Report: NBA teams must provide player's exact height, age this season

Exaggerating your height is something basketball players have been doing for decades across all levels of the sport.

The NBA, though, has apparently had enough.

According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, the league told teams that they must submit exact player heights and ages during the first week of training camp this fall. Height will be measured with players’ shoes off. Weight will not be included, per Stein, because it fluctuates too often during the season.

This is going to be a big help in figuring out basketball player heights, here.

Hey Rob! I just woke up from a really beautiful dream. I was in a cinema watching a horror film and a group of Down's Syndrome children were in there and getting scared, so I guess it must have been a 12 or 15. There was one boy in particular calling the name of the person in jeopardy, so I got out of my seat to give him a cuddle. Out of nowhere, my boyfriend appeared, having had the same idea. He volunteers for the mentally disadvantaged - and had had the same idea to comfort the kids! 🤗

@ajax509: How exactly do I round up? I've typically claimed my 12 hour low on this site, but these days I downplay a bit.

He’s that height barefoot tho. If that were me I would probably claim 6’5 1/2” although halves are poorly used or just say 6’5” and a bit or 6’5 and change. “6’5” is prob as low as I would claim and if someone challenged then say about 6’5 1/2”. I can understand Jdubbz if he said 6’5 1/2, they would automatically try to make him 6’6” which I used to get when I claimed 6’4 1/2” before I was aware that I was lower than that. I was frequently rounded up on my behalf

@ Jdubbz

sorry bro I didnt try to say that you are autistic . I dont think that you are autistic and I also dont disrespect autists . autists dont need to feel bad about themselves they are not any less valuable people than anybody else . I just meant that the rounding down is really weird to me . but to each their own

I just claim 177cm and thats good

@ khaled taban

I am not 5'9.5 after 2 hours out of bed . I am 177cm or close to it like 176.8cm or so 2 hours out of bed depending on activity level . that is 5'9.6 - 5'9.7

I am about 5'9.5 after 4 hours or so

after 5-6 hours I am 176.1 or 176.2 something around there . it depends also on the activity . if I just sit around mostly then I think I am even a bit above like 176.3cm after being awake 5-6 hours but I would need to check again . but something around there . I claim 177cm to people in metric . that is very fair . if everybody in real life would claim their evening height more or less then I would also do it but people dont do that ...in fact as I said many people even lie about their height or dont know their real height and claim a height that is a lot taller than what they actually are . so me claiming 177cm is very ok . I am 178.3cm or so out of bed and 177.6cm after being awake for 20-30 minutes or so and around 177cm after 2 hours . I am not lying with claiming 177cm because that IS my height I do measure it for more than a few minutes etc.

--

@Canson

it doesnt matter if I fall to 5'9 at an extreme low (I am actually a hair above 5'9 even at my extreme low btw lol) . extreme low doesnt matter ....by that logic out of bed height matters too if extreme low matters and I am 5'10.1 out of bed so if you are using my extreme low (which is a hair above 5'9 even as I said) to say I am 5'9 then I can also use my out of bed height and say I am 5'10 ....you cant have it both ways

but of course I know what you mean with the whole numbers . I also dont say that it is a crime what you are doing . you are also a cool poster and I like you but what I am trying to say is that I dont agree with me being "just a 5'9 guy" even though I am 5'10 in the morning and about 5'9.25 at night so on any time of the day I am above 5'9 . I am rather a 5'9.5 guy ...an arguably weak one though

to me rounding down and claiming that is "height robbing yourself" in a way . to you it doesnt matter ....to me it does . well it is nothing that important of course but I dont like to round my height down . if you want to you can ...I dont

@C-Mo: I respect you too. I was just saying that just because someone rounds down doesn’t mean they’re autistic. But you claiming 5’9.5 is fair. We also have different definitions. I consider a 5’9 1/2 or 6’4 1/2” guy to be 5’9 1/3 probably or 6’4.3 onward. A guy who is barely over 5’9” at a low (5’9.2) i guess you can do either but I’m just saying using the whole number logic. I have all but moved away from halves to be honest and that is because it’s not used properly. So if a guy is 5’9 5/8 at a low then just say “about 5’10”. But if he’s 5’9 1/4” then I would consider him 5’9”. And I’m not “having it both ways”. I only brought up the extreme low because you brought up that you are 5’10” in the morning but nothing about the extreme low. If you’re going to mention your morning height then the extreme low needs to be accounted for as well (by that same logic as you just said). But I don’t count morning or extreme low really. I use either Rob’s method which is 5 hours out of bed meaning around 1/8” above the normal low or the normal low itself which is what I go with and why I just go with 6’4.25 and round down to 6’4”. i would probably feel the same way at 6’1.25” and claim 6’1”. So it isn’t just because I’m 6’4”. To be honest, it’s more because I’m on this site so I’m aware as I used to claim 6’4.5 before when I was told I was that when I played basketball. But again I got tired of “why do you even bother claiming that extra half inch” or “dude you’re 6’5” which I’m not as legit 6’5” guys have 2cm (which will give the appearance of a full inch to most people) assuming we have the same posture. But to each its own
Canson said on 26/Sep/19
@Ajax509: to be fair, C-Mo if he’s losing a full inch loses more than I do and I’m 7” taller than he is
Canson said on 26/Sep/19
@Ajax509: Greg doesn’t lose more than C-Mo. Greg said before that he’s 5’11-5’11 1/8 out of bed and 5’10 1/4-3/8 at a normal low. C-Mo says he’s 5’10 out of bed and 5’9.2 at a low so they lose the same. Keep in mind C-Mo is heavier so that can affect him holding his height as well. I thought I saw C-Mo say he’s 5’10.25 out of bed so it’s even possible he loses more which is possible being he’s heavier. If he’s 5’9.2 he’s closer to 5’9 than 5’9.5 or 5’10 which is likely why Greg said that. He can claim what he wants but it’s a fact. In the 1/4-3/8 range some claim 1/2”. I don’t know Greg’s exact afternoon low so I can’t say. Christian does the same where he could go with 6’5 1/2” or 6’5 but he’s guessed taller more often than not. Christian has the mentality I have and would likely claim 6’5” if it weren’t the case. I’m in that boat where I just claim 6’4 but I hit a solid 1/4” most of the time and my extreme is lower. I’m also gonna be 38 soon (3+ months) so I’ve possibly lost 2-3 mm and my out of bed and low reflect it, and I know with my height that I lose it quick and I’m down to that by early afternoon so no need to claim taller. Not to mention i have taller friends who claim appropriately as we do here. One is 6’5.25 and doesn’t claim the change just 6’5” flat

@Artem6758 you have a nice height, i personally think its just tall(like when walking around a mall or big city) but in other situations they are often the tallest in the room!
@avi 6'0 is a weird height, i can be one of, if not the tallest in the room for a bit until the 6'2-6'3 guys walk in and you feel a bit short. I agree with you that it is tallish and 6'1 feels hardly different at first(used to wear lifts), but i have the edge on the many 6'0-6'0.5 guys i see daily. So its very beginning of tall, but 6'2 is solid tall

@cmillz I try to be as objective as possible. In fact, when there's a person trolling it's you or Greg. And if you don't get my/c-mo's point, it's a comprehension problem by your side.
Bobby 1.78m said on 26/Sep/19
@Ajax509

That can't be right. Greg is 5'11 in the morning and C-Mo is 5'10, that's an inch apart right there. Even at their respective lows, the difference is a solid inch even if both of them round up and claim the half inch.

Where are you getting the 0.8 inches from?

@Ajax509: they’re more than that apart. Greg is 5’11” out of bed and 5’10.25- 3/8 at a low. C-Mo is 5’9.2. That’s not a double standard. Greg essentially is right

Hey Rob, I'm 6ft 2.25in/188.6cm, I went out to my local shopping centre and observed 61 men of whom only 2 were about an inch taller than me. I think 6ft 2 is approaching very tall. And confirms selective bias in which taller people stick out in the memory more.
Editor Rob
I do think the bias exists and is one reason some average height men could feel short, or tall guys sometimes not feeling tall.

ajax509 said on 26/Sep/19
Greg operates double standard! Why should c-mo round down when he himself takes it liberal?? In reality they're 0.8 inches (5ft 11 - 178.3cm) apart.

If he's forcing c-mo to claim 5ft 9, I'll ask him to claim 5ft 9 3/4 - 7/8 'almost 5ft 10'. Pure logic, simple as that!
---
Canson said on 25/Sep/19
@Ajax509: Greg is comfortably over 5’10” tho so he isn’t almost 5’10”. If he said “about 5’10” then that would be ok but if he’s 1/4-3/8” range like he is 5’10 1/2” or about 5’10 1/2” is fine for him. Even C-Mo claiming 5’9.5” is fine but him dipping to 5’9.2” as opposed to 5’9” flat shouldn’t be a reason why he can’t claim 5’9” being he is closer to that than 5’10”. If he’s 5’10.25 out of bed it means he loses a lot. But him saying he’s 5’10 out of bed just means he’s somewhere around it. That includes 5’10.25 as he is likely rounding it down. But That’s poor logic and I think everyone here will agree. If he wants to claim a morning height (5’10”) or 5’9.5 that’s fine but it shouldn’t be projected onto others. I don’t agree with him for calling those who round down autistic. That is really offensive and it’s him saying it because he feels that way about his own height but to each its own. And if we have not read it yet despite the site being here 15 years it says that Rob bases his estimates on afternoon heights which is why we use the standard. I’m sure there are a lot of people who outside of here don’t claim what they claim here. I often claim to the 1/4” here but outside of here it’s just a round down to 6’4” flat or sometimes if I’m in thicker shoes I may push 6’4.5” but only if I’m not in the mood for an argument. Although I used to claim that all the time before I came on here and didn’t know it varied like it did. Jdubbz doesn’t round up his height from what he said. He said he claims 6’5 1/2” which he’s actually a bit over but that’s still a fair claim for him since he’s about 197 flat.

@Jdubbz said on 21/Sep/19
"avi: I'm glad someone else agrees. 6'0 really doesn't strike me as tall these days....."


Yes agreed.
It's a decent height but being almost that height myself it's not really solid tall. I admit I can feel kinda tall at times depending.
If I was a solid 1.25 inch taller to put me at 6'1ish I would not feel much difference. It's like me walking in boots around my house... So my life wouldn't be much different.

I think that 6'2 is where tall really begins.
I've seen 6'2 guys look huge even though in reality the distance from top of my head and there's is only a bit over 2 inches at most. Yet in my eyes I feel they look 3-4 taller than I would. It's about proportions too. 5'10 guys can look taller than I if they have ectomorph body type.

I know you don't like the ideal height point I made few months ago but 6'1-6'2 I think is a nice range give or take half inch because you still fit in and don't get too many issues with your height and are never short. It's even solid tall in Holland.

some say 5'11-6'0 is best, some say 6'3-6'4. It's all relative I guess. Some people don't like being tall (like my dad) some like being normal tall ( like me) and some like to be much taller maybe cause they are more outgoing.

Glad we could agree on something :)

@ Jdubbz

sorry bro I didnt try to say that you are autistic . I dont think that you are autistic and I also dont disrespect autists . autists dont need to feel bad about themselves they are not any less valuable people than anybody else . I just meant that the rounding down is really weird to me . but to each their own

I just claim 177cm and thats good

@ khaled taban

I am not 5'9.5 after 2 hours out of bed . I am 177cm or close to it like 176.8cm or so 2 hours out of bed depending on activity level . that is 5'9.6 - 5'9.7

I am about 5'9.5 after 4 hours or so

after 5-6 hours I am 176.1 or 176.2 something around there . it depends also on the activity . if I just sit around mostly then I think I am even a bit above like 176.3cm after being awake 5-6 hours but I would need to check again . but something around there . I claim 177cm to people in metric . that is very fair . if everybody in real life would claim their evening height more or less then I would also do it but people dont do that ...in fact as I said many people even lie about their height or dont know their real height and claim a height that is a lot taller than what they actually are . so me claiming 177cm is very ok . I am 178.3cm or so out of bed and 177.6cm after being awake for 20-30 minutes or so and around 177cm after 2 hours . I am not lying with claiming 177cm because that IS my height I do measure it for more than a few minutes etc.

--

@Canson

it doesnt matter if I fall to 5'9 at an extreme low (I am actually a hair above 5'9 even at my extreme low btw lol) . extreme low doesnt matter ....by that logic out of bed height matters too if extreme low matters and I am 5'10.1 out of bed so if you are using my extreme low (which is a hair above 5'9 even as I said) to say I am 5'9 then I can also use my out of bed height and say I am 5'10 ....you cant have it both ways

but of course I know what you mean with the whole numbers . I also dont say that it is a crime what you are doing . you are also a cool poster and I like you but what I am trying to say is that I dont agree with me being "just a 5'9 guy" even though I am 5'10 in the morning and about 5'9.25 at night so on any time of the day I am above 5'9 . I am rather a 5'9.5 guy ...an arguably weak one though

to me rounding down and claiming that is "height robbing yourself" in a way . to you it doesnt matter ....to me it does . well it is nothing that important of course but I dont like to round my height down . if you want to you can ...I dont
Canson said on 25/Sep/19
@Jdubbz: lol I didn’t know you still claim 6’4”. Yea That’s undercutting it a bit but you’re honest that you do it. If it were me I may go with 6’5 and change or “about 6’5 1/2” or a bit over 6’5” which is a stretch, but you are still 6’5-6’6” range since you see some guys here that are half round up I don’t see why the half can’t be rounded down too. but you’d get called out big time prob even worse In some areas downplaying it to 6’4” being so many guys that are maybe 2”-2.5” shorter than you claiming 6’4 or 6’5”. And even if you were say my height or just 6’4” flat, Sadly enough, people will tell someone they’re taller than they are even when they aren’t rather than to tell someone else they really aren’t what they claim. It’s unfortunate but reality.

As you know, I measure 178.9 first / 176.9 last thing. The lowest mark I've ever measured is 176.4 centimetres.
In Merics my claim is 1.77m, Imperial 5ft 9 and 3/4.

My question: Do you think it's a reasonable claim, and what could be my CH listing?
Editor Rob
177cm is a comfortable claim - if you went for a medical you'd measure that kind of range.

It would of course depend on how tall you looked with others or in person...
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 25/Sep/19
@C-Mo

To be fair to you, you have two options at 5'9.25.

You round down, which most people see as practical I guess.

Or you round up and claim 5'9.5, but that is the extent of what you claim if you want to be honest.

For me, rounding down makes no sense since I'm far closer to 5'10 at the end of the day than 5'9.

There's no need to feel attacked unless people are saying you're under 5'9 or something.
ajax509 said on 25/Sep/19
If Greg classifies c-mo as 5'9, he should claim. No more than 'almost 5ft 10' for himself.

@c-mo Also, why do you state your out of bed height as 5ft 10 when you measure 178.3cm? First thing you're 5mm over the mark so closer to 70.25in.
khaled taban said on 25/Sep/19
@Nik Ashton, I respect your opinion but I don't think 5'9.25" is a good height , maybe 5'10" is the bare minimum for "good",even still 5'10" can be really short in some specific countries!
You know what ?!
I visited Netherlands 5 months ago and my feeling there was terrifying , hell ! every single person is taller than me (whether is male or female) .
It was the first time when I felt so tiny , as If I am 5 foot tall!
It's hard to live in Netherlands as a short guy , It's like you are dying or going through the death throes, I can't explain more.
Thank god for living in the US , It's better to be short there !

khaled taban said on 24/Sep/19
@c-mo , you could claim 5'9.5" If you are that height 2 hours after being wake up , but don't round up to 5'10" , It's not reasonable.
You could also call yourself a 176cm guy If you would go with Centimeters.

I think a CM claim would be 176 if the person is 175.8-.9 at a low. It’s like me claiming 194 being 6’4.25 at a low.

Yea Jdubbz he is closer to 5’9” at a low. He can claim what he wants but saying others should not round down (for his reason he provided) is sorta projecting some insecurity on others imho, no disrespect. If Bobby “can” round up to 5’10” and he’s such an advocate of that type of thing, then there should be no issue with someone rounding down. I’ve never heard of such a reason as to why someone shouldn’t. Like I said in my reply to him, Here in the US we use whole numbers and what you’re closest to so me rounding up to 6’5” from 6’4.25” wouldn’t add up with another person who is 6’5” flat as they would appear close to an inch taller (2cm). I was a bit turned off by the “autistic” thing he mentioned just because others don’t agree with what he does. That’s ridiculous

Canson said on 24/Sep/19
@C-Mo: but I’m 6’4.25 at a low not 6’4.5. if I were 6’4.5” or 6’4.4” at a normal low and didn’t go below it I would likely not round down. I would simply claim 6’4 1/2”. But I fall to around 6’4.25 at a normal low and 6’4” flat or maybe just a tick over the mark (between 1-2 mm) at an extreme low. That’s the reason I round down being a legit 6’5” is going to have a noticeable difference with me and if I actually did measure, chances are I’d be closer to 6’4” than 6’5” being im already under 1/2” after 2-3 hours out of a 16 hour day. Other reason is because the 1/2” is not used properly. Most see it as another reason to round up rather than distinguishing it from 6’4”. Or (on the opposite end) see it as an excuse on my part to add height So I stopped claiming it.

PS: I don’t understand what you mean by “taking away from yourself”. That makes no sense. We use whole numbers here in the US so 5’9.2 or 6’4.25 are nearest 5’9” or 6’4”. You likely fall to 5’9” at an extreme low so I don’t get the logic. If it is an issue with rounding down as taking away from yourself, I’m not sure why rounding up is any better. Saying “everyone else does this doesn’t justify it as being right”. It’s like saying everyone else on the forum drinks rat poison to intentionally harm themselves so it is right for you to drink it and deliberately try to harm yourself? If anything claiming the 1/4” would be the happy medium if you don’t want to round down but nobody does that and it sounds a bit pedantic and pressed or silly. They always claim a full number (for the most part) up or down. Just like with Bobby, 5’9.75 so he says he’s 5’10”. I think in that case “about 5’10” would be adequate whereas “about 5’9” is fine. That doesn’t mean you’re 5’9” flat it means you’re around it. But it sounds as if you’re saying that a person who rounds down is committing a sin or that people who don’t claim every single fraction are when this is not a competition and some guys don’t care while obviously others do. As far as insecure, I’m not sure what else that would be. I actually agree with JDubbz as he’s 6’5.5-.75 (197cm range) and he also claims 6’5.5” he could easily say he’s 6’6” which is fine too but don’t see an issue with either. But Greg classifying you as 5’9” that’s what you are closest to but you’re entitled to claim how you feel. I just don’t get your logic of because you don’t fall all the way to it. I’m sure a lot of guys don’t fall all the way to the mark and still claim it just as a lot will round up
Jdubbz said on 24/Sep/19
@c-mo:

Lol that's taking it a bit too far. Telling someone who is 5'9.2 at night that they can round down to 5'9 isn't autistic. Again I'm not saying you have to claim it or round down, that's just what makes the most sense to me. Then again, I don't remotely care about rounding up since it doesn't matter if I claim 6'5.5 or 6'6 or 6'5.75 or whatever. These days I claim 6'5 or even 6'4 if I feel like it. Literally 2-4cm under my actual low. End result is that I'm still very tall so it doesn't affect me at all. I can see why that half cm is more important when you're bang on average, but others can't tell the difference even if you can.

Since you live in Germany (I think, correct me if I'm wrong), I'm sure you just go with 176cm or 177cm which is fair and more accurate. Claiming 5'10 would not make more sense, even if it's your out of bed height and you measure it for a few minutes each day. At night you are far closer to 5'9 than 5'10, and you maintain your night height for a lot longer than your morning height. Note that I'm not saying you have to claim 5'9, do whatever makes you happy friend.

Hey Rob!

It would seem that my Dad was more than likely 'being nice' by saying I was 5ft1.75! The girl who did my breast exam confessed to being 5ft, and admitting to 5ft2, but telling me that I was shorter. 😕

Then I took my sneakers off and she took her flat shoes off, and yes, my shoulders were below hers. I did, of course, tell her I wrote on Celebheights and she went straight in for the kill, telling me her height, and the height she goes by! Needless to say, there was a great deal of laughter and I added, "You'd be surprised how many people do add a couple of inches, even when they don't need to!"

So I have an urgent desire to pop over to Tesco's, where I can get my correct height by weighing myself. I suppose it would be ideal to go when I have been up for most of the day. My Dad DID measure me fresh out of bed, but I was still suspecting he was trying to 'make my day' - and it SO WORKED! 😁

The driver on the way home, to whom I also mentioned Celebheights (leading to his telling me the celebrities he's been lucky enough to meet), told me his wife, at 5ft2, was vertically challenged and his sister-in-law, (I think it was her), was only 5ft. When I got out of the ambulance, he likened my height to that of his sister-in-law. Now I feel an urgent need to measure myself and accept myself as I am. I so enjoyed going out today and meeting people that I thought, "That's what life is all about!"

When I asked the transport people if I had enough time to go outside and have a fag, a lovely old chap with long, grey dreadlocks, joked, "Yeah! You go and have a fag!" I patted him on the shoulder after making a remark, which I forget now, but it DID make him laugh!

Not one person judged me on my height and a routine visit to the hospital turned into a memorable adventure, meeting only the nicest of people!

Love to all!

Sandy XXX 😉👍

@ Jdubbz

yes more or less . but I have trouble measuring 2mm exact . I also think the stadiometer might compress a bit on the ground where I stand on ...doesnt help that I am heavy either . but yes lets say on a normal day I am around 175.9cm at the very end of the day

it is not 5'9 it is still 5'9.2 or 5'9.25 . 5'9 is 5'9 and 5'9.2 is 5'9.2 and that is my NIGHT height as I said . and I am 5'10 in the morning . I will never understand the "logic" in rounding down your height . I would have to cut a little of my head at the top to be "just 5'9" . most people round their height up or even lie and here on this site people are taking height away from themselves aka "I am 6'0.25 in the morning and 5'11.3 at night ..I am a 5'11 guy" .... seems autistic to me tbh

you could argue that I care too much about the small fractions . but so what ...I am not tall or anything . people like Canson who are 6'4.5 or whatever can round down because they are already very tall but when you are in the average range or shorter every millimeter "counts" so to speak . and no this has nothing to do with insecurity ....lets not pretend that height doesnt bother us and as if height is not important in aeshtetics , sports , and other things in life . I like my height but I would like to be a little taller so I will not round my height down to 5'9 . I will not sell myself shorter

it would even make more senste to claim 5'10 for me instead of 5'9 because I actually do measure 5'10 (even if not for a long period of time in a day) but I dont measure 5'9 flat

think about this what you want :D love you all hehehe

@c-mo , you could claim 5'9.5" If you are that height 2 hours after being wake up , but don't round up to 5'10" , It's not reasonable.
You could also call yourself a 176cm guy If you would go with Centimeters.

In the above site you can find the average height for young men in UK
Averages are given from 1992-2017. The average height varied very little by year.
I calculated the average height from 2010-2017 for 16-34 year olds(younger generations) and it was 177.6cm for 25-34 year old and 177cm for 16-24 year old guys. So those are mid-day heights so the average might be 177.2-3cm at night for 25-34 year old guys. So At night it is actually close to 177cm than 178cm.
What are your thoughts about this Big Rob?

Yeah table 13 is the one people should save and refer too as the sample size is decent enough to get an idea of the English figures. Interestingly the average is pretty similar over last decade, right around 5ft 9 give or take a few mm.

It is strange though the 2016 figure got 178.4 mean for the 25-34 then in 2017 it was back down to 177.

That seems a big jump...maybe with a different sample it might not have been so drastic a change.

@Jdubbz every millimetre counts until you’re solid tall height :))

@ Nik - If someone threw a pig at me, I doubt very much that I'd be capable at this moment in time of throwing it back! 😝🐖

@6'1guy:

I honestly doubt he'll even reach 6'4.5, but then again it's impossible to predict these things and he could end up a giant or something.

I think a 13 y/o 5'5 girl will probably max out at 5'6 or 5'7. Girls usually stop growing by 15 or 16 IIRC.

@C-mo:

You said you were like 175.8cm at a low, right? So 5'9.2 night height. That's pretty much 5'9 if you're going by evening height imo. Just like how Canson claims 6'4 despite being 6'4.25 at his low.
