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.

That’s great, thank you. So it would be likely that a 5’6 person would be slightly taller than barefoot 180 in one of those higher pairs like these? Amazing how much height these shoes can give!

yeah the black shoe has a 2.75 inch platform...and the angle is high enough to get somebody close to 3 inch tip-toe, possibly depending on shoe size slightly less or slightly more...hence 5.75 inch is possible.

@Linke I met “6’3 Julian” he’s like barely over 6’0, gotta be topping 250lbs, don’t know why he’d lie on a site like this and claim 6’3, if that’s his height I’m 6’5 at least
Editor Rob
I'm pretty sure if you looked in a mirror you'd see 6'3 Julian and Julian Cross 188.5cm staring back 😄

@Christian yeah every account with a J in the name is definitely my alt
RJT said on 21/Jan/21
@Christian

In general, Japanese people don't inflate their height. Maybe 1 or 2cm is possible due to not realizing difference between morning and afternoon height, but apart from that I personally never heard one inflating theirs.

Beside the culture of NEVER wearing shoes inside house hence their measurement will be exclusively barefoot, in Japan there's this saying that "The nail that stick up will be hammered" (due to their conformity culture) so if anything, they might deflate theirs.

I at weak 6'3 (189.5-190cm) rarely see guys my height during my frequent trips there even in Tokyo (Most populated metropolitan in the World). They usually guess me to be "must be over 190cm".

It might be different in China or S. Korea though.

@Modern
I don't think it has anything to do with being "proud". In fact, if Rob was so proud, he would've actually already upgraded his listing to as tall as possible.

@Canson
It's possible that Dillon made a typo. Either that, or the 6'6.25" measurement could've been in his shoes in the morning.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Jan/21
@MrFish
How much do you think the Japanese inflate their height, on average? You mentioned that they're honest, but I'm sure at least some inflate by a degree.

@Kevoz
For all we know, he could be, but it doesn't look suspicious enough to the point where I'd accuse him of wearing lifts, by looking at the pic.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 20/Jan/21
@Canson
Julian and J2Frenzy (AKA ChaosControl) are the same person, I believe. Though I've never seen J2 admitting he's the former Julian, both are 6'2"-6'3", British, play rugby, and type and word the exact same way. "J" in J2Frenzy stands for "Julian" more than likely. As for Slim, he's admitted before that he has mental/depression issues (his admission, not mine), so some of the stuff he says may seem paranoid and strange. But it's harmless and overall he's a good guy though.

@Rob
Ok, I get it now. I don't often keep up with the Youtube videos or the channel so I didn't get the joke.

During pandemic Youtube helped top up some of the lost revenue for this site 😎

In 2021 my plan was to use the time I had spent in 2020 doing youtube and take on some occasional jobs, but that is on hold as I have increasingly needed time to look after my parents, but I am grateful to be able to help them more 🥰

@Rob

Have you given any thought to considering adding a man named Adam Rainer? According to Wikipedia, he's the only man in recorded history to have been classified as a dwarf, and later a giant. His height, at the time of his death, was somewhere around 7'8 to 7'10. He was born in 1899 and died in 1950.

I did at one point, but he's not really searched for much to be fair.
Sam83 said on 20/Jan/21
Thanks for info rob. Do you think someone of 5’6 in those pairs, would also be taller than me then, if I was barefoot? I didn’t realise they could gain so much extra height!

Also, do you think my partner would be taller than me in a pair like these, if I was barefoot? Click Here
Thanks
Editor Rob
they should give over 4.5, but maybe not quite 5, so a 5ft 6 person would be pretty close to a 180cm barefoot guy. Eye to eye

Hey, Rob. I've been following your homepage since 2004. You answered all my questions about height. But please... finally upgrade your size to 1,73.5.
For years, you've been too proud to admit that you're 1,73.5m. Do it on the day Trump left the White House. Do it for your Fans. We love you.

Rob, have you ever been noticed in public?
Editor Rob
yes, that still happens now and again, though still infrequently.

MrFish said on 19/Jan/21
Rob, just a few things I've noticed since I moved to Japan.
1. Japanese stadiometers seem to under-measure me. About 0.3 to 0.5 cm less than when I'm measured against the wall with a tape measure.
2. I lost a lot of weight (going from 79-82 kg to 56-59 kg) and my morning height and daily height loss haven't changed at all.
3. Japanese people don't seem to inflate their height. Maybe because they never get measured in shoes (a culture of no wearing shoes inside). People here guess me at my height, 175 cm, whereas people in the US tend to think I'm at least 5ft 10.
Any thoughts?
Editor Rob
you would expect some accuracy in Japan with stadiometers...although, if Seca (the global leader) can misalign imperial/metric by 1mm, anything is possible!
Sam83 said on 19/Jan/21
Hi rob. I have 180cm. My partner is 5’7, how tall would she be in these please? Would she be be taller than me, assuming I am barefoot?

Editor Rob
yes in the ones described as 6" she would get nearly 5 inches from them so look taller than yourself. The other shoe could get 5.75 inches or thereabouts, so even if you wore a shoe, she'd still be taller.

@Avatar
I've hit extreme lows more times than I can count. It usually only happens when I'm either very physically busy or after lifting heavy weights.

@Olympian
Tall In The Saddle and Tall Sam are another pair that can be confused with each other at times. Both are around 6'5" and have "Tall" as the first part of their usernames, not to mention type similarly as well. At least Canson and I word and type noticeably different.

I don't think they look too suspicious, but spotting 1cm lifts would be very hard. A 1 inch range lift starts to push the foot forward enough to make the laces area bulge a bit more....

@Dillon
When you're 6'4 3/8" and getting 6'6.25" measurements, then something's up. That stadiometer must definitely be either miscalibrated or intentionally altered.

@Blanc
But almost all of my measurements have been the same, whether it's from a can or a stadiometer. And the very few times there were a difference, it was the stadiometer that showed me as taller, not the can. But we're talking a very small amount, like only a couple mm's.

Willes188-189-190/Checkmate/Pucko got himself banned after posting hateful and threatening comments

He also admitted to posting under the influence and he claimed his father “hacked” his username. The guy is very much full of sh1t. Not to mention the fabricated stories about his education and about me and my “friends” and that someone was scared (Battery) to come back because of me Edward, Christian and Julian etc. in reality, Battery had been banned already by Rob for his behavior and Willes was next. He’s been banned more than just these two times (the one Slim is mentioning and this time). He was banned back in 2018 or 19 and had been before. The site is better without he and Battery

@Slim: I don’t get why you’re scared of him. And How would he track you down? Does he have your address? And you don’t even live in the same country I doubt. He probably doesn’t know your real name so I don’t see how that’s a topic right now. You don’t have to suck up to him in fear. That’s a weak sign in a man. As for him being smarter, I won’t touch on that. You can see how bad his estimates were and how he had to make it a point to brag about his IQ. Then he made comments about science or some topic on Rock’s page and was way out in left field. I remember Christian and Julian both called him out (along with me) and Chaos Control (J2Frenzy) may have also called him on it. So obviously the bragging is because he needs credentials whether fake or not, to make himself more reputable so that he can be taken seriously

Yeah, like Rob said, it is just celebrity height. I have definitely got more stirred up than I should at a couple posters, and perhaps many of us have. I understand why Willes and Battery are gone, but do you know what happened to Yao is 7-8? He was probably the most harmless of that bunch. Almost laughable some of the stuff he would say.
Editor Rob
Yao ballot stuffed a lot, to the point I think managed to raise or lower a fraction a couple of the big (literally) names on here.

@Vincent: yea the ballot stuffing was obvious with Yao. I mean look at Yao Ming’s page and Andre’s and Hulk Hogan’s? He had Andre at 6’10 peak and while not a stretch (that’s one of his better estimates) he forced his beliefs on people. Then he swore Hogan was 6’3, Lebron 6’9 and Yao 7-8. He used terrible pics and admonished people who used good pics. He wasn’t as bad as the other two and I agree he was laughable at times
Canson said on 19/Jan/21

In fairness, the "ballot stuffing" by Greg was uncalled for. Abusing the voting system just to change the outcome is immature. Rob has a mind of his own and is entitled to think what he wants. Obviously, Greg and I didn't see eye to eye on that, but that has always been my stance on the matter.

@Bobby: yea he was wrong and he owned up to it. He mentioned he wasn’t aware of the rules too. But either way, that wasn’t that poster’s place to say anything to Greg about it. He did it to be rude to him and this is a poster who’s behavior is not up to par yet he’s throwing mud at Greg. Not only that, he wasn’t involved in the conversation at all

Blanc (1.69 m) said on 18/Jan/21
Should I go with the seca measurement or the wall measurement?
Editor Rob
it's hard to say because there might be a slight variation with floor or wall which causes a difference.

a small angle could result in a few mm difference, especially if the stadiometer bar isn't perpendicular to the bottom plate.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Jan/21

I would've said he might've undermeasured, but the chances of undermeasuring yourself by nearly an inch is very slim. The average person overmeasures more often of the two.

@ Christian - I thought it sounded incredibly tall when I asked my Dad how tall his eldest grandson is, who has just turned 2, and he said "About half your height."

Last time I saw him, he was a baby! That's why I checked out this average height chart for kids and sent it to Nik, who I knew would be fascinated, and he was! Now there's another cherubic little grandson, and nephew for me, and I met him, at a respectable social distance, of course.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/21
@ Christian - I've tried to do a bit of research on the Scottish Wildcat, but I didn't find out any reasonable proof as to whether why these cats attack is in their actual genes - which is what I wanted.

The Scottish Wildcat used to roam the whole of Britain. It's been hunted almost to extinction and now there are fewer Scottish Wildcats, also known as Highland Tigers, than there are actual big tigers. In 1988, they became a protected species.

The rumours that they attack us without warning are an exaggeration. That hails from beliefs dating back to the mid 1800s. Now that there's a British Wildcat Association, and pure specimens of the Scottish cat have been tracked, far more is known. They won't attack without warning! 🐯

They are similar in size to the Domestic House Cat (DHC) and have been breeding with them so much that purebreds are badly in danger of dying out. They look similar to the large domesticated tabby, but you can see there's a difference because the black line on a Wildcat stops at the end of the body and the tail is ringed, whereas with a DHC, the line continues right down the tail. (I've looked at mine!)

Finally, behaviour over many centuries is learned and passed down, and if the Scots cats are afraid of humans, who can blame them? There used to be three varieties of wildcat prevalent in Britain, including the lynx and the mountain lion, (I'm not 100% on that) but only the Scottish ones remain, and have moved to the Scottish Highlands for safety and solace. I was surprised and amused to see 'Scottish Wildcats For Sale' some time ago in a cat magazine and again on Google. These will, of course, be those that have bred with DHCs. There are thought to be between 3,000 and 4,000 purebreds remaining, and programmes are underway to boost the population. 🐈❣️🐈

So that's it, Christian! Wishing you and everyone a great week ahead! XX 🤗

@stefkat tip of nose height varies between people it can be anywhere 6-7 inches, but with a 174-174.5 eye level i would say 6'1.25-6'1.5 range. No less than 6'1

Blanc (1.69 m) said on 17/Jan/21
From all measurements I've taken, the seca 213 gives me 0.3-1 cm lower than wall-can-spirit-level measurements and it is calibrated currently.

I was at my low of 5'6 3/8" according to the can and then 5'6" flat / 167.7 by seca 213 and also 5'6 1/4" while staying the same on the wall the other time. Which one do I consider my "real measurement"? I'm consistently around 5'6 1/2" to 5'6 5/8" 5 hours out of bed by the can.

This makes me conclude that my posture maybe isn't as good as I think it is and when holding the can I "stretch" out a bit and don't stand up perfectly straight and get my stance slouchy at the end of the day/low height.
Torrinator said on 17/Jan/21
Rob, I know someone who is 50 and claims to be 5ft 6.5 and has lost 1.5 inches and used to be 5ft 8. And no this person is NOT Big G ;)

However from my perspective he looks 5ft 7-7.5 range, so it’s more likely he’s lost maybe a fraction and wasn’t 5ft 8 in the first place! How can someone go from claiming to be taller to claiming shorter than they are ?

BTW this is my new username

under-measured is a possibility. Maybe interesting if you mentioned to him he looks taller and he might remeasure!

I have 2 relatives that has the same condition as your cousin, and one of them is a grown adult in his 20's, yet his mind is like a 2 year old's who never developed, which would be the best way to put it. It's a pretty sad sight to see. But then again, people like him are naive and ignorant to pretty much everything, as they have very low IQ's, so they might not feel any depression.

@Canson
After all, we're both very tall and our names start with C and ends with N, lol. I've confused Sandy and Nik on a few occasions, and their names are nowhere near similar. It's more due to the fact that they're close friends and spell and type similarly.

So you cried over a guy getting banned? If so, that's a bit too extreme.

I heard that the height of a male child that just turned 2 years old, and multiply by 2, and you get a good indicator of their final adult height. It's supposedly 2'10.2" according to that chart, so 5'8.4", but that seems a bit too low.
Dillon Rice said on 16/Jan/21
@Christian 6’5’ 3/8” It’s weird cause I got 4 6’5” and change measurements at various different times and days at the doctors, but at home I’m about 6’5’ 1/4” out of bed using a tape measure in my bathroom. After 9 games of basketball yesterday, I dropped to 6’4’ 3/8” at 11:15 pm. I generally claim 6’4’ 1/2” cause I don’t usually fall below this, and I don’t seem to be as tall as 6’5” either according to my home measurements. I’ve even measured 6’6.25 on a stadiometer at the chiropractor’s office one time and 6’4 3/8” at another doctors office a few months before that. Can’t rely on all those doctors office measurements, it’s just all over the place.
Canson said on 16/Jan/21
@Christian: yea I’ve only measured near my morning once in recent memory and that was because I had been reclined before I went around lunchtime. I think they measured me at 6’4.5 or a bit higher a few years ago. I also reclined a bit on the bed in the office waiting on them to start the physical. This was maybe months after starting here on the site so I didn’t know any better. Now when I go in it’s always 6’4 3/8 or 6’4.25”

But yeah I forget the whole drama with Willes. It was over a height estimate I think over like the average in Sweden or something.

@Christian Yeah Philly has its ups and downs and most likely NY would be more diverse/ shorter average.

Rob I measured my bf and 170 cm came between his upper lip and under his nose. His eye level is in the 174 cm range (174-174.5) barefoot. Is he the same height as Karlie Kloss ?
Canson said on 16/Jan/21
@Vincent: I’m of the belief that he made that stuff up. He even lied about how long he had been on celebheights. After I proved he hadn’t been here since 2014 like he claimed, he quickly changed it and tried to say he had been here earlier in 2015 than I did. This is after I posted proof so he couldn’t lie anymore. People like that (narcissists and liars) try to sound convincing in their lies to get the other person the shut up and to try to make the other person look bad in an attempt to deflect the attention off themselves. He and I started right around the same time here and as a matter of fact he may have been after me by a bit (not that it matters). But then he made the lie up about “a poster is scared to come back here because of me and my friends”. Battery said that on The Rock’s page and Battery and him took a liking to each other because both are height inflators and dislike Christian, me, Julian, Edward etc. you can see that Battery was actually banned by seeing his posts on Undertaker’s page. Notice how the other poster hasn’t posted since for the same reason as Battery. Unfortunately, just like Slim mentioned below he talked in the third person and turns the attention to others with his lies (much like his idol the current president). As for the Greg situation, he admonished him about his “alleged ballot stuffing”. He wasn’t even involved in the conversation and he has nothing to do with it. He just went off on a tangent after Rob scolded him. That’s what people like that do. They “highlight” other people’s indiscretions and flaws to try to mask theirs.

@Slim: I remember very well! But the civility Rob mentions will never be a part of his life. He needs to “brag about” and make up “lies” about his achievements and about others in order to make himself more credible and to tarnish someone else’s reputation. If Rob allows him back, he will be the same. I guarantee he is banned again. And as you know over all these years, I surely won’t back down from him and barring a major change in him will treat him the same way I have since he began posting here (right around the same as or shortly after I did). I stand up for what is right. It’s just a matter of time, if he is allowed back at all, that he is banned again. Most posters here don’t like him. I mean look at what he did with Greg (G Suave). He had nothing to do with that situation. He goes in and admonished him for something that had nothing to do with him. It’s not his place or even his site and he wasn’t even in the conversation. What Greg was alleged of doing is no worse than berating people like he’s done, making up lies about himself or others, or posting under multiple names. Yet the excuse always was that he “did that in the past” and that it was always being brought up. Yet clearly he never changed. Then he bashed BLM and ANTIFA etc and came across as a bigot (as I proved). He mentioned to me that I was like talking to a BLM member on his campus? Hmmm. Because I don’t agree with him, right. I stand by what I said. He is a disease

@ Rob - You've crept into my dreams on a couple of occasions, and the one I remember most vividly was one which included Jenny and your niece Big Rose, plus a couple of others, who appear in your videos.

I was chatting with you and Jenny about height and the pros and cons of being short, medium and tall, while the kids were sitting on a wall, bored, waiting for a game of ball! Jenny was very witty and went over to reassure the kids that their Uncle Rob would soon be ready to play.

👩🧔👱‍♀️ "Yap yap yap yap yap (inches!) yap yap yap yap (feet and inches!) yap yap yap yap yap (centimetres!)..."

Unfortunately, I woke up before the game got underway. 🛌💤....👋😄

Mostly yes, but it depends. Having thicker shoulders can give the illusion of being taller in some cases.

@Canson
Pretty rare to see a person from a developed country (especially US) not owning a FB page these days. Almost everyone I know has at least one page, some even multiple. Do you have any social networking accounts besides e-mail?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Jan/21
@Dillon
I don't know how you manage to measure that tall at the doctor's after 5 hours out of bed, especially considering that you have to travel there, meaning you'd be losing more height than if you were sitting around at home. I never measure more than 6'5 5/8" or max 6'5.75" when I visit the doctor's, even if the measurement takes place quite early in the morning like only a couple hours out of bed. I definitely lose some height from leaving my home to getting to the doctor's office, whether it be by car or by bike.

@DrewPip
While most people do lie about their height to a degree (some more than others obviously), 5'9" do seem to be the actual average for a guy. If you take the average claim, then it would maybe be more like 5'10"-5'10.5"
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Jan/21
@RJT
The average is only 5'9", but like Rob said, the bell curve must be put into consideration. The West has a wider distribution than Asia. That's probably one of the reasons why you almost never see a guy your height (190cm) or taller in the Asian country you live.

@G Suave
I've never been to Philly, but would like to visit there someday if I get the chance. The closest I've been to is maybe New York and Boston. I wonder how those 3 cities compare in height to one another. I'm betting the shortest would be NY, because it's the most ethnically diverse.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jan/21
@ Christian - The celebrity I dream most about is Stephen Fry, followed by Hugh Laurie. I've also dreamt of Liv and Steve Tyler, Patricia Arquette, other rock singers and a multitude of film stars. Even Soap stars creep in sometimes. I've dreamt of Andrew Scarborough a few times because I'm very fond of him and went out of my way to buy his DVDs when he was written out of Emmerdale.

I'll be back to talk about the Scottish Wildcat later....

Dillon Rice said on 15/Jan/21
@Rob What height would you consider official? 5 hours out of bed? 8 hours out of bed? I noticed if I play lots of basketball my height goes down quite a bit too. Certain days I hold 6’4 3/4” for the whole day when I’m sitting around on the couch all day and others where I’m more active I can drop to 6’4 3/8” or even a bit lower. I generally claim 6’4 1/2” cause I don’t fall below that height too often, but then again I don’t have a super active lifestyle. I also noticed I measured 6’5 1/8-1/4” approximately 5 hours out of bed at the doctors, but at home I don’t measure that tall unless it’s right out of bed.
Editor Rob
I feel 5 hours is a fair time to get measured and state that height
DrewPip said on 14/Jan/21
I think that most people lie about their height or they are just wrong.What do you think Rob,is the average height really 5'9 or it's based on people's wrong claims?

it really is measured around 5ft 9 in the UK and I would say from a 5ft 8 perspective that it seems right.

Asperger's is a milder and more common type of autism, so maybe that can be completely genetic in 100% of cases. But I was talking more about the severe low-functioning ones. I know and have met several people with Asperger's, but only 3 people with the latter.

@RJT
5'8" and it's not even close. Even in the Netherlands, it may be around 50/50, as the average there's around 5'11"-5'11.5"

There was a poster many years back named Arthur who would troll the forums and try to say garbage about everything. He even thought he was 1/8th of an inch taller than me which he wasn’t but he tried bragging about that poor little Arthur boi

@Slim: you recently did that on Reynolds’ page? Meaning back in November? I don’t remember that. I think he got banned for his body of work. He went in on Greg too when he had nothing to do with the situation. Again narcissistic behavior. People like that have to feel important and active as if they are doing something productive or helpful. They do that to divert the attention from the things they do
Canson said on 14/Jan/21
@Vincent Caleb: yea I remember all of that. I said that too in my post to Christian that he’s a narcissist. That’s how narcissists behave. They have to highlight their achievements etc to gain any credibility which he did in order to get people to believe them (not to mention he lied about it along with lying about this person who is scared to come back to CH because of me and my friends). He was talking about Battery (he used the phrase Canson and his friends first and latched onto W190 because he and I have always hated each other) who you can see started a fight with everyone on Undertaker’s page. Rob banned him too. So that was a lie

Those are 2cm bigger than the heels Jenny wore in the old videos.

I hadn't measured jenny for many months, but I checked her just now and she managed 5ft 7.75. So in those heels could get near 6ft 0.5 and eyelevel would be 5ft 8.25 range

@Editor Rob

Which is more common height in the West, 5'8 or 6'2?
Editor Rob
5ft 8 is a more common height
RJT said on 14/Jan/21
@Editor Rob

Do "Average height" in the Western Countries represent that most people are actually that height, or it's just like it says, average? Meaning if you group say, 10 persons and there's 2 190cm guys, 2 177cm guys, 4 173cm guys, 2 170cm guys and adding it up and divide by 10, you get 176.6 which is close to the average height according to statistic in UK/US?

Just curious because I find it hard to believe the average is only 5'9 range when there's supposedly many over 6'3 guys over there?
Editor Rob
height distribution should follow a bell curve. Roughly 2/3rds of men will fall within plus or minus 3 inches of the average (5ft 9ish).

Maybe taller people mention their height more often and it simply seems there are a greater amount of 6ft plus?

I have met contributors in person who have mentioned their height on here. Whilst a few have inflated, the majority I'd say were pretty reasonable with their claims.

Maybe one day I should introduce a 'Verified Height' checkmark for those contributors who make a video measuring their height 🤔

It's sometimes a combination of genetic and enviromental, like other conditions similar to autism. And no one's saying that there's anything wrong with having autism, as people who have it obviously didn't get to choose to not have it.

What makes Scottish wild cats' temperament different from the other wild felines? Visually though, they look tamer than bobcats or lynxes. In fact, looking at pics, you can't even differentiate some SWC's from domestic cats. (not me at least, but you may because you're knowledgeable on cats)

I think if you spend the majority of those years as a live-in nanny with lots of different families you might have different feelings.

Hey Rob!

I've just woken up from an amazing dream. In attendance were friends of mine, past and present, and they brought with them stars - all of whom are no longer with us - who included Lemmy (a real hoot!) Peter Green and Vincent Price.

Back in October 1992, I met a guy called Chris, who lived in the district of Shirley in Croydon, easy to walk to from my local High Street. He approached me when he heard me playing 'The Green Manalishi', by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. We were in a psychiatric hospital, which was the same year I'd seen my boyfriend, Pip, die a very horrible death, so I admitted myself some months later and could come and go as I pleased. We all could in that ward. Chris had also heard The Small Faces blasting out of my earphone-free walkman, and he'd known their front man Stevie Marriott too.

My chats with him were fascinating. He explained the meaning of 'The Green Manalishi (with the two pronged crown)', or rather, he filled in the blanks because I think the two pronged crown gave it away somewhat, and told me how he'd played with Fleetwood Mac on Top of the Pops in the late sixties. I heard him play his guitar and he was a knockout! 🤭

He also talked about Stevie, who had passed on the year before in a house fire 😢, and that he went out with a girl with my name in the 1960s. Unfortunately, he was not in my dream, but he's always in my heart, having given pleasure to even my Mum, who liked it when I played The Small Faces.

Chris was by no means a boaster, and only opened up to me because we were kindred spirits.

Anyway, back to the dream! When Vincent Price turned up, I shouted, "Isn't he tall...?" and he looked his full 6ft4, even though he wasn't a young man. I asked him to repeat one of the lines from a film of his that had my friend Bert and myself in stitches - so he did! It was, 'I wish to exercise my husbandry prerogative', said in his usual spine-chilling way! Incidentally, my boyfriend Jim met him when he was in the Army and Vincent apologized if he was a bit on the tetchy side, bemoaning, "I have a terrible tooth ache, my dear, so please excuse me if I'm not my normal self!"

Jim found it amusing that he called him 'my dear', being as he was a grizzled soldier, but he found him utterly charming and impeccably mannered, speaking like a typical old school star; I believe they all spoke like that.

I wish I could pick and choose what I dream about, but it's the luck of the draw. Dreaming of celebrities for me has escalated since I've been commenting on Celebheights, and it's a remarkably enjoyable side effect, I must say!

🛌💤

Have a great day everyone!

Jenny spent 20 years as a Nanny, that may have been part of it.
Rapha said on 12/Jan/21
@ Christian

Indeed, you are right, usually taller people have a bigger frame to support their size and weight than shorter people. Nonetheless, there might be differences between individuals. Let's take the example of a well built muscular 190 cm tall men and a very skinny 190 cm tall men who is weighting 70 kg. The 190 cm skinny men might have on the long run more complications with his pain than the strongly built guy as he has less muscles to support his back. That would be my guess.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Jan/21
@ Christian - I very much doubt whether anyone could even attempt to keep a Scottish Wildcat! 😂🤣😂 I'd be interested to know whether the product of a Scottish cat crossed with a house moggie would make a good pet; I somehow think it would. It's a subject well worth investigating. 😸

The wolf cub 🐺 is born friendly and cuddly, in the same way as the vast majority of big cats. The only reason a big cat or dog, aside from the Scottish Wildcat, becomes what we'd consider savage is in order to eat and, quite understandably, for self-preservation. A mother animal will do anything to protect her young, as I found out to my detriment when I was 22 and lived within spitting distance of a park - the same one I talked about in my comment about squirrels. 🐿️ Almost every day, I'd go to the park to feed the ducks,🦆🦆 the geese and the swans, and one Spring morning, I tried to feed a goose, stepping over the safety barrier in order to do so. The bird was furious, and when she got up to bite my ankle, I noticed she was sitting on some eggs, 🥚🥚🥚 which looked quite big and very likely on the verge of hatching.

I never attempted to get too friendly with a big bird again! 😕 My Mum and Dad had a similar experience with a swan in London's Hyde Park, dropping the entire loaf of bread as they were running away. 🍞 When I was a child, my Mum told me that a swan is strong enough to break a human arm, and I assume the same is true with a goose. How I miss her stories.... 😢💖

If you were a large, furry animal and all your needs were catered for, wouldn't you pack up hunting and take full advantage of the free food and love on offer just for looking pleasing and cute to your owners? I know I would!

Cheers to you, Christian!

Take care and keep safe,

@Olympian
Not sure if the COVAX will or won't have any complications (autism included) or botches, since it's too early to determine, because it's not available to most of the general population yet. But I agree with you completely about natural immunitization. But on the other hand, viruses can mutate itself into other strains (just like we saw with the recent UK COVID variant), rendering prior immunitizations useless, so now people will have to figure out how to be immune from the newly mutated ones.

@Sandy
Are there any people who keep SWC's as pets? If some wolfdogs are kept as pets, then I don't see why SWC's can't be either.

The Scottish Wild Cat is the only known cat to be born wild and hissing. All other cats, regardless of size, are tameable. I've seen a picture of a tigon standing up with his owner so that comparison pictures could be taken. He was a real pussycat, and cuddly with it!

I think Ellis was talking about the hours slept, not the hours passed since out of bed. When you sleep for a less amount of time, chances are that you won't regain the lost height as much, if you slept longer.

Interesting story! Sorry that I'm not an expert when it comes to cats, but I wonder if cross bred offsprings of domesticated house cats and wild cats (such as bobcats, lynxes or even lions or tigers) exist. I wonder what that looks like.

@ Christian - Who knows? It probably would be a ligon and yes, the male tiger being the bigger cat will carry the dominant gene.

Funny things happen when animals cross breed, and we don't have to look as far as big cats. The tortoiseshell domestic cat is predominantly female, and if a male happens to be born, he is considered a freak of nature and is infertile.

One year in the 90s, 96 if I remember rightly, just before Christmas, I was walking about with my mate, Bert, and I saw a garden choc-a-block with tiny pregnant cats and others. I was concerned, and I knocked at the door at midnight. A friendly lady answered and invited us in. While Bert was getting drunk on whiskey with her, I explored the houseful of cats. If I came across a wardrobe style cupboard, I only had to open the door to find a lactating cat with plenty of kittens. Some of the Mums were looking after two litters, as some lactating Queens are lazy. The lady's ginger cats were pale BLOND, and they were excellent, responsible fathers, often having kittens sleeping on them, and washing them enthusiastically.

I asked the lady, named Annie, who was a school nurse, why the pregnant cats were so young and small. She replied, "They aren't kittens at all - just small cats."

I have some very small cats in my collection myself, the smallest of which is Manelia. Porkipine and the late Peelio, were thought to be kittens by the neighbours. I'm very pleased that Manelia doesn't go in the front garden because she's so small. I don't like any of my precious cats to go in the front garden as people drive like idiots, it being such a long road.

Anyway, back to Annie. I asked her how many cats she owned and she didn't know! None were neutered, and they kept multiplying, but she kept them all, having a huge house and big back garden. She'd notice if one of her cats was missing, so I guess that the reason she couldn't give an exact answer was because there were so many young - yes, kittens of varying sizes and colours. All her tortoiseshell cats were blue tortoiseshells, and she had completely blue cats and blue and white cats. The outcome of a blue mixed with a pale ginger, blond coloured Tom was quite stunning! She didn't own any orangey gingers or black-based, 'dark' tortoiseshells, so I'm assuming she started out with a blue female and blond male and maybe a few more. She had a talented musician daughter of 16, who used to jam with members of Genesis.

I kept in touch with this lovely family, but never got to know Annie's husband. He worked for the Ministry of Defence, and spent most of his time away. He had no idea how many cats his wife had accrued over the years, and if he asked, Annie would always say, "Ten!"

😂👏🙊

Have a great Sunday Christian and everybody, and a fabulous coming week!

Rob my sister came over and I gave her to wear this pair cause I was so curious how would she compare to my bf.
Click Here
She stood next to my bf while he was in socks and they looked the same height or very close .I was surprised I thought she would be taller than him.
I opened the measuring tape and it looked that they were both at almost 187 cm . Which surprised me cause my bf claims only 185 cm
It was so hard to tell who was taller with the measuring tape .. it would be easier if we had your stadiometer! 😝
My question is how tall do you think my sister is barefoot ?she claims she is 177 cm, I’m 172 and she is taller than me .
Thank you
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have thought that heel would have given more than 10cm, the platform doesn't look much more than 1 inch really...but still maybe do a proper measurement of BF and see how tall he really gets!
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 10/Jan/21
@stefkat
They'd give around 5/8", if I had to guess. You don't get as much height as it would seem visibly, like Rob said. Most of the slides I own give me no more than 3/4", though they look like they'd give easily 1"+

@Rob
I don't visit the countryside all that often either, though I do notice that it actually feels taller than the suburb where I live.
Editor Rob
I'm always aiming to get out and about more as Scotland is an interesting country to explore and far less populated than England, but still like 2/3rd the geographical size.

these kind of flip flops always look thicker than they are, I would think more half inch range
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 10/Jan/21
@Rob
Which feels taller, the city or the countryside in your area in Scotland? The city may give the illusion of being taller, just because the chances of seeing a tall person is more likely because you encounter more people.
Editor Rob
that is something I haven't been able to tell much, because my trips to country settings have been more limited the last few years.

I wonder why tigons are physically larger than ligers. Maybe the male parent carries most of the dominant genes over to the offspring, and that the male tigers tend to be bigger than females? Btw, I wonder what the offspring of a tigon and a liger would be called. Maybe "ligon", lol.

Hi Rob

Do you think that tall people do have more problems with their back than short people (back pain, slipped disc etc.. )? Many people assume that a longer spine is equal to more problems with the discs. What is your take on that ?
Editor Rob
maybe there is a bit of correlation with that, though without reading any study I don't know how strong it might be.

@Ellis
Do you currently sleep on a hard of soft mattress? Maybe the hardness might have something to do with it. For me, soft ones don't do me any favors, so I've sticked with hard ones, as well as hard pillows.

@Canson
Didn't Slim admit to having ADHD or some similar disorder? That could have something to do with it as well. (I hope this doesn't come across as judging or blaming Slim, as he's a cool guy) As for Willes, I don't wanna go too much into it. I think it's best to let bygones be bygones at this point. Same goes for other posters you/me had issues in the past.

@slim
You mean Willes? I think it's rather odd to consider someone you only know through a forum site as a brother, but whatever floats your boat I guess.

Funniest part is (I like Slim a lot but it’s the truth) Slim has had the same issues with Willes over the years anyone else here has. He has behaved toward Slim in the past the same way as he does others here and now when he challenges him, Slim simply backs down from him or doesn’t respond and is very deferential to him. In reality, it almost comes across that he is afraid of him. Even funnier that when you go back at Willes the way that I do, when it gets bad enough to where it begins to affect him (just as any other narcissist does) he runs in the Corner and runs to Rob about my “behavior” as a poster because I go “below the belt” with people” or he plays the guilt trip which he did with Slim which is why Slim is so deferential toward him. That’s (again) how narcissists behave. They have to project their insecurities on others bragging about things (such as their achievements, IQ, knowledge about a certain or multiple subjects, etc). Then when they get a taste of their own Medicine they play the victim card. In reality because they can’t handle getting back what they dish out. In my case, I don’t back down from people and will stand up for what’s right even if I take a chance on getting banned (as you’ve seen before) but There is a reason why Rob banned him (once again).

Could depend on your overall shrinkage, but 4mm difference is something I found myself from 5-5.5 hours compared to near 8

@ Chaos Control - That's what was thought at one time, but they've done a bloody good job at it in the UK, or it wouldn't have made the newspapers, complete with pictures!
😂😂😂

How about tigers and lions? They've been at it too, and one result is a mammoth-size cat, a tigon, bigger than any other that walks the planet. It's the result of a male tiger and female lion and is perfectly capable of breeding! Female tigers and male lions will produce ligers. They are equally capable of reproducing but aren't as huge as the tigon.

Hi Rob

Editor Rob
for a man, you could have lost a good 3, maybe 3-4 range, women can lose a bit more...some lose less or more than others of course.

are you talking about cm or inches ?
Editor Rob
inches.

you would be doing remarkably well at 100 if you lose 4cm only...


That is true. I believe that the shrinking process becomes faster from the age of 80 onwards and possibly even faster from 90 onwards.

Do you share that opinion?
Editor Rob
in that 80-90 range, the vast majority of people will be losing height...at a greater rate than between 70-80 I believe.
Canson said on 8/Jan/21
@Christian: I think I’ll take it. it’s not great here in VA although not as bad as Cali since it’s smaller. My county, Fairfax County, is the highest in the state. My city McLean isn’t great either. We’re also the largest most populous county and not far from both the city and the Maryland border. The mortality rate is going to be higher being an affluent county so more elderly here than in some others. Although in Virginia, we are still considered a suburb of the District of Columbia but we don’t border it. Arlington and City of Alexandria do. Ironically those had curfews issued this week by Governor Northam during the fiasco at the Capitol since they border the city. My county borders them and we three are considered part of the DC area.
Rapha said on 8/Jan/21
@Tunman

Yes, you might be right. 1 cm is certainly not easy to notice and possibly Rob can notice it as he is a specialist in evaluating peoples height. For us "untrained" people we could more likely spot a 2 cm height difference, I believe that a 3 cm height difference starts to be visible even for the most untrained person.

@ Rob - Re: General Knowledge.

I take quizzes quite seriously when I think about it - stupidly so, even! Yes, I can imagine that your knowledge of height trivia is expanding every day, as is mine, but to a lesser degree.

I have some ridiculously daft things stuck in my head, including the order of the names in our class register from when I was 4 and-a-half. I learnt it without even trying, but after age 5, I don't recall them at all. This bears out the theory that under fives pick things up at an unbeatable rate, their brains able to grasp things almost subconsciously. Ergo, that could account for many a deep-seated phobia which has stayed with us, and all too often, we can barely remember how it got there.

There was a funny question on The Chase just now, or should I say, the reply was funny. This time, the contestant was asked, "Which item of household furniture was used to make the von Trapp children's clothes?" (...from 'The Sound of Music, of course.)

The player reckoned their clothes were made out of CHAIRS! It goes without saying that today's Chaser, Paul Sinha, had something to say about that! 😂😂😂 Somehow, the bloke got through to the final; he goes by the name of 'Force'. Judging from some of the replies he's been giving yet again, he's definitely NOT a Force to be reckoned with!

Have a great weekend, Rob, Jenny and all of you,

Sandy XXXXX 😉👍

@ Christian - The squirrels who lived in that park in Beckenham, Kent, (near to where Birthday Boy David Bowie lived) where particularly friendly because they were so well fed. No squirrel with his head screwed on would leave that park as it has everything a squirrel could ever want: huge trees, a constant supply of food and, of course, plenty of other squirrels to play with and do their bit to ensure that the grey squirrel population doesn't fizzle out! 🐿️🐿️

Although red squirrels live in the UK, I've never seen any. I saw only red ones in Germany, and they seemed a little smaller than the grey ones. I've read in the papers that grey and red squirrels have been mating, and seen pictures of the results. I'd love to see a British red squirrel and the result of the mating between red and grey ones! 😁👌🐿️

Rob, my dad was probably a 173-4 range in his prime and has held onto 173ish throughout his 50s until now at age 61. Do you think he'll lose more height over the next few years and be no more than say 5ft 7.5 at age 70?

For a guy in early 60s he is quite fit with good posture and looks about 10 years younger.
Editor Rob
a key area is 65-70. Retirement (sedentary nature) and the ageing cells can mean it's hard to avoid some loss in that zone...

if your Father keeps active and a good diet, maybe he will hold up better than his peers...

it's never to late to get fitter or more supple and retain more height as we age.

1cm could be spotted if you have the ideal conditions to judge height,but sometimes you won't be able especially if the persons you're comparing have a particularly high vs low eyelevel which could often lead to over/underestimate,also posture,build even clothes can mislead judgement,so not an easy task except if you have the skills of someone like Rob.

@ Olympian - Hi Bobby! Firstly, I'd like to share with you that the set of DVDs which costs in access of £600 is about the three great Greek philosophers Sokrates, Plato and Aristotle. I'm going to check out the opportunities on offer to buy them on eBay. Even if I bought the second hand copies for £125 and they weren't faultless, I'd be very hacked off indeed! You can put your name down on eBay for news of any product you're interested in, so that is what I am going to do with this DVD collection.

My sister-in-law phoned me early this afternoon. She's going to pick me up next week to take me to see my Dad, who is very poorly. I'm having difficulty concentrating on anything much at the moment, but this has kind of put my mind at rest. What with this horrid Covid virus forever hanging over us, it's risky to travel. Even if you try your hardest to put it at the back of your mind, it can still come out in your dreams, as happened to me last night. I dreamt I was out and about buying a few odds and ends when suddenly there were people all over the place suffering from mass hysteria, and freaking out if they'd seen someone who hadn't come up to their standards of cleanliness, or people who weren't wearing masks. Some were even committing suicide rather than risk catching the virus and fighting it. What a horrible dream, and one which I was relieved to wake up from.

Shortly after I woke up, there was a slot on a morning magazine programme offering help to its viewers about how to bolster the immune system to fight off the coronavirus. The things to eat are: a minimum of two yogurts a day, plenty of beans, in whichever form you fancy, including the tinned ones in tomato sauce, which I consider a really underrated food. Often passed off as junk food, they are anything but. They contain protein, iron and vitamins, and although plenty of vegetables do contain iron, in many cases, as with spinach, for example, the majority of it passes through the body. The iron in beans, however, is easily absorbed. Another good food mentioned on the programme which boosts the immune system is the good old banana.

Now I'd like to tell you about a film I watched last night. Starring Stellan Skarsgard, it was 'Exorcist: The Beginning', and I thoroughly recommend it. It has some stomach churning scenes, but the plot was the most outstanding thing about it. My own copy is lousy, so bad that I didn't catch the reason behind the accursed area being so evil because my own disc jumps, leaving entire chunks out. Well, the area (in Africa) was cursed and full of demonic activity because it was where Lucifer landed when he was thrown out of Heaven by God, along with a bunch of others, as one can read in the Bible. I'd never given it a second thought as to where he could have landed, but it obviously occurred to whoever wrote this - what a revolting thought! This film is the forerunner to 'The Exorcist', and from an historical point of view, albeit a fictitious one, it is more interesting, and a must for anyone who rates the infamous 1973 movie, 'The Exorcist'. Stellan plays a priest who had lost his faith after what he's seen in the War, but he regains it, saving the life of a possessed little boy. The ending does have a feel-good factor, whereas the ending to its more famous sister movie is sad and rather inconclusive, inasmuch as you're left thinking, "If she can become possessed so easily, what's to say it's not going to happen again, either to her or to somebody else?"

One of the ladies from whom we get our cats texted me just before I watched this, explaining how depressed she's feeling as a result of this cruel virus and not feeling in control of her own life anymore. She is a religious lady, but with an interest in esoterica. I phoned her and told her about someone close to me who was the same, and to give it up. Whatever I've learnt about the subject is for 'forewarned is forearmed' reasons. I've seen what it can do to people. It's far healthier to pass one's time reading to advance our knowledge, watching interesting DVDs and, like you, playing video games. Since you get so much out of these games, inventing your own with a view to marketing them would be a very fulfilling career for you. Have you thought of incorporating them with questions about interesting subjects? Games like that would even interest me! I don't know whether anything like that has actually taken off yet. Maybe it would be too slow to achieve the adrenaline rush that players of such games seek....?

I wish you a fantastic year ahead, Bobby!

All the very best,

Sandy XXX 😁👍

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jan/21
@ Christian - I certainly did LOL when I read that somebody wanted to stick a hat on a squirrel, but in a fairly local park to me, the squirrels, all grey ones, are so bold that they climb up people! I used to cross that park every weekday on the way home from work, and I swear the big-eyed, curious furry creatures used to wait for me, so I used to have some monkey nuts handy for them to seize with their little hands.

When it first happened, I was a bit scared, they being only a beautiful swishy tail removed from a rat, but I still found it highly amusing and sweet. All the animals in that park are extremely well fed. The ducks and swans which live on the pond are fed every day, and there's a notice which says, "Please only feed us brown, wholemeal bread, as white is bad for us!"

Pigeons, sparrows and other common garden birds would assemble for food as well and fish would excitedly bounce about in the water and swim off with edible trophies. 🐟😄👌

Always happy to oblige, the time I used to spend in that park on my way home resulted in turning up home some 2-2 and-a-half hours after I left the office on many occasions. The journey itself took one hour of swift walking, but it kept me fit.

Have a happy Thursday, Christian!

It always helps a bit to appreciate that humanity has been through far worse at different points in our history and still managed to come out through the haze.

COVID has tragically impacted many lives in many ways. I simply can't cop to people who, in self pity, bemoan the situation when it HAS NOT impacted them at all, not the least being celebrities whose wealth has provided them with a protective cushion. Thankfully, it hasn't impacted me. I wear the mask, I do the QR thing for tracing, I accept the supply shortages, the restrictions, etc. Big Deal. It's not an heroic proclamation. I am thankful that I haven't got it, I haven't lost someone to it, nor do I have the potential concern of knowing or being related to anyone in the high risk categories, etc.

I think people disposed to "Self Entitlement" struggle most with this. They often sprout their "Rights" but ignore the fact that a lot of what is ordinarily available to them is "Privilege", provided by many people whose own "Rights" are forgone in the delivery of those very privileges. Clearly, these people don't worry about anyone else's rights but their own. The line between the rights of one person and another person are often blurred, with the rights of one vs another often overlapping.

The best to be is positive and realistic at the same time with due concern and action in deference to the health of our fellow beings. Any other mindset is impractical and self defeating.

@Editor Rob: yea and that’s made its way into the US now in a few states (probably all of them but just not yet confirmed). I wonder what the difference in contagiousness is. They mention 70% increase in places but never mention enhanced steps (such as increasing the distance between people from 6 feet or 10 ft to 12 feet and beyond)
Editor Rob
yeah I've seen them say up to 70%, I mean 50% more contagious is bad enough really and it's why the UK is in more stricter lockdown just now again.

@Canson
6 feet is bad enough, but now 12+ feet? That's sad. It seems as if people are getting more and more socially disconnected and disengaged as the years go by. And there's an argument that interaction has increased due to the use of Internet, social media and skype, but nothing can fully substitute actual in-person human interaction. It's just more direct and intimate.

I don't think those inserts give that much height, the sneakers themselves look close to 1 inch, so at most maybe 1.3-1.4 inches in total, unless the heel insert is thicker than it looked.

so he might be near 6ft 2.5 or 189cm, to match him you are needing a heel that gives a lot...one of those stripper type heels with 3-3.5 inch platform...that might get you close in height to him.

just don't topple over in them 😺

I obviously don't know your situation, so it might not be best to tell you how to feel, but merely being scratched over bullying isn't that serious, unless if it escalates and leads to things worse. But the best thing to do if you or your friend can't defend yourselves, is to first seek help from authorities (whether it be teachers, principals, parents etc.)

@Rapha
It's around 196.5cm (77 3/8in x 2.54cm if you do the conversion)

Hi Rob

Can you notice the difference between people who are 1 cm in height apart ( given they have more or less the same hairstyle and are barefoot) ?
Rapha said on 6/Jan/21
Hi Rob

Editor Rob
for a man, you could have lost a good 3, maybe 3-4 range, women can lose a bit more...some lose less or more than others of course.

are you talking about cm or inches ?
Editor Rob
inches.

you would be doing remarkably well at 100 if you lose 4cm only...
Tosin566788 said on 6/Jan/21
Hi Rob, would you describe 6ft 0.75in just under 6'1 as tall in the UK. Or just above average?

yeah, that is a tall guy in the UK...

Rob, what do you think about Don Toliver's trapper height? he is listed as 5'7- 5'8 in most places.
I think he is closer to my range so like 5'6.5" around that. I don't think he fully push
Editor Rob
yeah he might be similar to yourself. Couldn't see him 5ft 7-8

I’ve done the round of mattresses in my time.

I once had a futon bed and mattress. Looked great. However, I found it a bit too firm for my liking leading me to rename it my futile bed in so far as hoping for a good nights sleep. I’m a princess and the pea guy. Within minutes, a small inconsistency, say a micro gather in the sheet, will quickly feel like a boulder. LOL. Too precious, eh?
Rapha said on 5/Jan/21
@ Christian 6'5 3/8

Thanks for your input Christian. Yep, it could be that your bodyweight does not affect the amount you shrink on a daily base. Btw, is your height at 6‘5 3/8 equal to 197 cm ?
Rapha said on 5/Jan/21
Hi Rob

Which height would you start to call someone very tall ? men and women ?

My definition would be starting at 190 cm in the western world for men and 180 cm for women .
Editor Rob
6ft 3-4 is where you'll find a lot more people viewing you, and describing you as very tall, and 5ft 11 for a women is very tall.
Rapha said on 5/Jan/21
Hi Rob

How many cm would a person in average shrink in case this person has the luck to reach the age of 100 ?

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jan/21
@ Christian - It didn't take at all long to feel the difference between a soft mattress and a harder orthopaedic one when my Mum bought me one when I was 17. I was far too young to be suffering from back problems, but I did feel more refreshed in the morning and yes, I'd say I walked taller. My Mum told me off from an early age when I slouched.

I think that, yes, it does effect your posture if you have a decent, hard, orthopaedic bed, most definitely.
😄👍
Canson said on 5/Jan/21
@Christian: I tried measuring on extra sleep recently and was right at 6’5 1/8ish (195.9 or 196). This is on about 10 or 11 hours if we include laying down for a few hours watching TV before I actually went to bed and the same when I woke up for about an hour. I recall measuring around 196 years ago out of bed when I was here so chances are that that was on extra sleep and not a regular out of bed. Somehow I managed near 6’5.25 once or just under it about 4 years ago but since I only got it once I’m not sure if it was accurate and it was quick and dirty measuring. Then when I get 4-5 hours of sleep I’ve been a hair under 6’5 out of bed a few times (195.3-195.4)
Canson said on 5/Jan/21
@Editor Rob: yea and that’s made its way into the US now in a few states (probably all of them but just not yet confirmed). I wonder what the difference in contagiousness is. They mention 70% increase in places but never mention enhanced steps (such as increasing the distance between people from 6 feet or 10 ft to 12 feet and beyond)
Editor Rob
yeah I've seen them say up to 70%, I mean 50% more contagious is bad enough really and it's why the UK is in more stricter lockdown just now again.

How's the situation currently in VA and DC? I don't live there, but I imagine it's not that well.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Jan/21
@Sandy
I can't speak for everyone, since everyone has different tastes and preferences for mattress hardness, but I personally find that it's less taxing on my back sleeping with a hard one than a soft one. But not sure if sleeping on hard mattresses over time prevents or decreases height loss, than if you sleep with softer ones. I wish there were studies on that. I think however, that there's a greater chance of reaching your max morning height by using hard ones, but again, I'm not so sure about age-related height loss.

@Rob
I don't really care for spring beds TBH. I've tried it before for a while, and felt no improvement in sleep quality or back/neck pain. I just found it to be a waste of money, so I returned them.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jan/21
I've was just browsing through the toy department of Amazon to see if they had anything suitable for my eldest nephew, who's 2 in a couple of days' time, when
I came across a very small plastic play hat. Someone had bought one in the hope of being able to stick it on the head of her friendly neighborhood squirrel. I'd give good money to see a sight like that, indeed I would!

🥜🥜🥜 "I'll stick to nuts thanks!" 🐿️
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jan/21
@ Rob and Christian - Do either of you think that a person's choice of bed can have a long-term effect on his or her height and, in the case of a hard mattress, prevent height loss? Soft beds have a reputation of causing bad backs, after all - a fact that reached my understanding when I was a teenager, as my Mum suffered from lumbago. She was told to buy a new bed after she was visited by the doctor, who said her bed was 'much too soft'. When her back was very bad, she DID look shorter as she walked along - I'm 100% sure of that.

This is something that I've never really chewed over in my head before, but it makes a good deal of sense!

🚶‍♂️🚶 📏
Editor Rob
Some mattresses that have got spring/collapse issues may well contribute over time to an increased chance of back problems.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Jan/21
@Rob
I've heard of pillows affecting height as well, but never gave too much thought into it, as I've been using a pillow for sleep all my life. Maybe I'll experiment sleeping without one later.

@Blanc
I thought glucosamine supplements had no smell or taste to them, but then again, I've never tried them myself so I can't say for certain.

But I've always imagined that Taylor rather has a small head for a girl her height, so she should have a small eye level as well.

slim 6'1 said on 4/Jan/21
I’m afraid to say I agree with Christian, I ain’t so sure if this year is gonna be better than last but hopefully I’ll be better in my head after that incident...
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 4/Jan/21
@Rapha
In extreme cases most likely, but even then, I doubt it's that drastic. I was anywhere from 250lbs to 180lbs at my height, and it hasn't affected my shrinkage at all, which is a usually 3/4" loss. If I was 350-400+, then maybe I'd lose a full inch.

@Rob
I wonder if the hardness of the bed affects morning height as well. For me, I prefer extra firm beds, so I don't have a soft one available right now so I can't experiment. My theory though, is that soft mattresses might actually decrease your maximum height, because of the way the spine bends and sinks, whereas the spine's straighter and more aligned on firmer ones.
Editor Rob
I do think the 1 thinner pillow theory is something that I tested and found maybe makes 1-2mm difference in morning height...
Rapha said on 4/Jan/21
Hi Rob

When would be the latest for someone to shrink when aging ? I believe that some people might have only started to shrink a few mm in their late 50s or even early 60s such as Morgan Freeman for example. Would that be the latest or do some people only start to shrink even after that age ?
Editor Rob
there will be people who can make it to 70 with minimal (few mm) losses, but it is rarer and genetics, lifestyle, exercise/diet will all have an impact on how much we might lose.
Blanc (1.69 m) said on 4/Jan/21
I started glucosamine, let's see if I gain anything. The pills smell and taste pretty horrific, a bad version of a grape flavour.
Editor Rob
maybe give it 6 weeks and report back, I would avoid measuring at all in that period.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jan/21
@ Rob - I know! You were a three-month-old foetus and Nik a five-month-old one! I started reading Shakespeare in the September of 1974, with 'The Merchant of Venice', which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I used to wind my Mum up during board and card games by quoting chunks from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' - and every time I got to Bottom's lines, I'd start laughing. My Mum would shout, "It's not funny!" Sometimes she would smack me and I'd giggle even more.

I reckon it was funny, especially as Bottom wore the mask of an ASS!

Rob if a 185-186 cm person barefoot wears Adidas gazelle sneakers and someone like Gal Gadot or Taylor swift wears 6 inch heels with 2 inch platform
Would they be taller ,shorter or the same? What about their eye level?
Editor Rob
Gal and taylor have pretty average range eyelevels, but compared to an average 6ft 1 man, it might be a few mm's higher.

if they wore 2-inch platform and quite high stem then they would be eye to eye, I don't know about looking much taller though.

that would be a peak morning height you've achieved.

I found that for myself 10 hours didn't really make any differnece compare to about 8...however only 6 hours did have a couple of mm difference

@Rob
For me, it peaks after around 9-10. Any longer sleep than that, and I've noticed that my morning height doesn't really get any higher. I think your sleeping posture plays even a bigger role than the duration. Just like most people, I find that sleeping on my back tends to makes taller out of bed compared to on my side or stomach.
Editor Rob

Absolutely, anyone here has the right to express how they feel, as long as it's respectful and not inflammatory (within Rob's discretion of course). My post had nothing to do with my personal views on the subject you were mentioning, or how much I agree/disagree with your views. It came from a place of concern if anything, because posters in the past have had their posts taken down or even been temporarily banned because of touchy subjects like those, so my suggestion was to maybe take the discussion to the Sookie's Den page, where it's more lenient on what topics you're allowed to post, that's all.

Do you think that a very skinny person would shrink less from morning to evening than an average weight person or even obese person ?
Editor Rob
It would make an interesting bit of research to determine total shrinkage amongst different weights at about the same heights, to see if there was a slight increase in shrinkage with significantly heavier weight ranges.

Are you sure all blue models would have a near 1/8th inch error? I remember checking mine and it really only seemed to be 1mm off rather than a good 2mm like yours.

I've checked a couple of them and both had similar error...whether later models had slightly smaller error I'm not sure as those ones are well over a decade old.

@Christian

I wasn't really debating with MD, but he took the time to call me out over absolutely nothing. I am polite and well-written when I say something controversial. Nothing I say is without evidence or some sort of historical lens, but MD chose to find that offensive, for some reason. I have brought up my views before and have not had an issue here. It is my belief that human beings should be allowed to express themselves and what they believe without censorship. I cannot be expected to hold my tongue when others express views that I disagree with. That's not fair, is it? This isn't an attack against you, I'm just trying to explain myself and the situation.

I just think it's all very 1894-ish. I know it's Rob's forum and there are rules to follow, but I was being polite and expressing myself logically. That's more than I can say for a lot of people who turn squabbles and ideological differences into "who can insult who" the best. I am very objective when I write about why I don't believe something, it could be anything, so I don't understand why that's such a problem here. But again, it's Rob's forum, not mine. So, I won't make a total issue out of it. I just think it's a little annoying when my comments get edited or censored to avoid triggering people. I don't go out of my way to belittle or attack people here or anywhere. You've known me for a while, so you'd be a decent character witness about how I conduct myself on here.

a noticeable difference because the 186 person is looking near the mouth of the 193 man...

between 70-80th percentile could be the crossover point from upper average then getting to lower tall.

@Tunman
The opposite happens as well. I was in a situation a few times, where I merely felt above average, and everyone around me was easily 6'0"+, and some were even taller than me. Then there were times where no one seemed above maybe 5'5", and I felt like an absolute giant. It's just the luck of the draw. But both of those situations usually only happen when there's a small number of people, like Rob said.

Rob,did you ever had a day where you felt exceptionally tall for your height?Not feeling like 6'6 of course but simply a day where everyone you know seemed strangely shorter than what they normally look?
Having had a nice day but a very active one with a rather long walk on the beach I decided I will open my shop for few hours.As I'm writing this 5 customers visited(of whom 3 are used to come)and strangely I felt all of them looked easily 2cm shorter than what they used,very strange especially if you think that it's a day where I might very well dip slightly under my normal height.Of course it would have required to meet a larger number to confirm but could it be that sometimes physical activity offers you an impeccable posture(although temporarily)?Anyways it seems a quite good start for 2021,lol!
And obviously I wish everyone here A HAPPY NEW YEAR and of course to KEEP WALKING TALL LIKE ROB PAUL (AND GIANT JENNY)
Editor Rob
there are some situations even at 5ft 8 you will find yourself feeling tall, but the greater the amount of people, the less that can happen.

And happy new year to yourself 👍
