> aren't inches the same all over the world?
No. Miles aren't either. Or lbs. (Danish ones are larger!)

Macguru - I wasn't sure if you were joking but as far as I know Aussie feet are standard ones ;). We use metric over here anyway but '190 centimetres' just doesn't sound quite right for quoting your height.
toadhall - you might not be able to stuff us in the back of a crewcab but it doesn't worry me... my midget companions always offer the front seat anyway for the extra legroom :).

I'm 6'4", 230 Lbs. Desk are always too low, chairs too high. How come tall people are always asked to get things on the top shelf and no one asks short people to grab things on the bottom shelf? Why do shirtmakers insist on makng shirts for tall people, with short arms? :)

I am only 5"11, but you guys are all shorties compared to my friends. I used to play basketball for the south of england and lots of other regional teams... tallest I ever met was 7"1 couldnt jump couldnt play just stood there and got in the way most of the time :)

6'5" and 13 stone.. er.. 13x14.. 182 lbs

yokelrobin, welcome to the board.
DUDE, are you sure you did that conversion right? (6"5'/185!?). Wow, I'm 6'/180 and feel I'm underweight 10-20lbs.
| 12:31 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I know I'm 13 stone :)
14lbs in a stone right? 13 14s are 182.
I wouldn't say I was underweight, but I probably am a bit.
To be honest.. I'm only a bit bigger than a bottle of champagne (excuse the stupid smile):

In a school boy, "my dads bigger than yaan" tussle a friend of mine stated that:
"yeah well my Dads 5ft 12inches"
He got some stick
| 12:35 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
That could be a normal size bottle of Moet which would make you about 4 foot?

6'3/160 here. And I feel overweight...
| 12:40 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
It's actually a half bottle....

Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com], yokelrobin!
SlyGuy defenitly has some competion here!
yokelrobin, where do you buy shoes?
| 12:52 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I'm size 13... most places in the UK just about cater for me.
Got a friend who is size 17, and he's only just 6'. Think he has them custom made.
| 12:56 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Am I on the right planet?
im 5 '10 and about 160lbs.....a midget by all accounts!

I'm 6'4" and for mexican standards I am a freak.
Its so unusual that I would feel out of place if I were to hang with you guys.
Pants are always too short, shirts with long sleeves are always too short, xx-large t-shirts are for fat people, not tall people and most of the time I feel like the ceiling is too close to my head.
But buying shoes is not a problem.
| 4:40 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
There are shops for tall people and overweight people (and for both together), but I always feel like I'm some kind of freak when I go in them - it's like you've been set aside from everyone else. Very strange feeling.

Isn't Drastic a giant?
| 4:56 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
He could be one, we haven't heard of him and toolman yet. For the time beeing we have SlyGuy and yokelrobin on top of the podium.

What a way to make an entrance ;)

Surely they are tall enough already, can't we stand them in a ditch or something. And no, I'm not bitter at 5'9, really I'm not :(
| 5:11 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
6' 1", 340.
| 5:16 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I'm 6/230, but I think those Southern Boys are beating me ;)
rc, got room for one more Seafood Sucker in Jan? I really really wanna go..
>Isn't Drastic a giant?
400 lbs, 15 ft arms, 1 cubic afro and the teeth to go with it. Terrifying!
| 5:34 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Wow, I just noticed this interesting thread!
Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Yokelrobin, it's good to see another giant amongst us. Now it would be extra great if you happened to be Canadian too! ;)
For the record, I'm 6'5" and a little over 240 lbs and as far as my shoe size is concerned, I'm about 1 size away from custom made sneakers.
on being big..
- Ability to reach things on top shelf.
- Always get picked first in a game of basketball/football.
- I can see the whole screen at a movie theatre, regardless of who's sitting in front of me.
- I only use the phone book to look up phone numbers ;)
- Sitting anywhere on a roller coaster and getting that "front row feeling".
- Constantly hearing sales people say "Gee, I'll have to see if we have that size in the backroom".
- XL shirts having sleeves that come down to my elbows! (ala DigitalGhost msg #:33)
- People asking "How's the weather up there?" and "Do you play basketball?" and still thinking that is somehow funny.
- Sitting in the backseat of ANY automobile.
(PS - on a Canadian side note, does anyone remember "The Friendly Giant"?)
| 5:43 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
and here's one for those who like to rock and a big armchair for 2 to curl up in.
or something close to that.
watched it all the time when I was a kid and numbered among the wee folk and clothes always were too big.
| 7:43 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
And I'll call Rusty.
Oh. Hi Friendly. Where's that idiot Jerome?
Now Rusty, hehe.
Just kidding Friendly. But who needs height (or shoes for that matter) when you've got attitude [poppyware.com]?
| 10:41 pm on Dec 19, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Ah, yes, the friendly giant. I loved that show until he sold out and went all commercial. Didn't he start flogging corn in a can or something? :)
| 2:33 pm on Dec 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Sorry to bring up an old thread - but I felt I had to gloat. 6"5 and still about 5 months shy of 18 - though I dont think I'm growing much anymore.. May make it to 6"6 or at the most 6"7.
Yes, I am freakishly tall, but the truth is, I love it - and most girls seem to as well (and, of course, my legendary charm and charisma :)).
Of course being tall does have its dis-advantages - i.e flying... Im still getting therapy for that 22 hour flight to Rome.
| 3:35 pm on Dec 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I am a 5'4 Al Pacino (in Scarceface) look-alike guy, just tall enough to kick any giant on his guts :)
| 4:20 pm on Dec 27, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Robertito, if I were 5'4" I wouldn't be aiming that high. ;)
i.e flying... Im still getting therapy for that 22 hour flight to Rome
Next time take an airplane. It's easier on the nerves.
