Your Height

Unread postby TooMuchBaijiu » Wed Jul 20, 2011 9:30 pm

Let's see who stands out (no pun intended) as the tallest and shortest people on the forum.

I don't think I'll be either, though since I'm half-Filipino, I was pretty much destined to be on the short side, standing at 5'5 (165 cm).

I'd also ask all of you to reveal your weight, but who wants to read a thread full of BS :P ?
I don't write fanfic, but if I did it would involve Zhou Yu and Zheng He fighting to win the heart of Lai Choi San. Then I'd make them join forces to fight Ming the Merciless, who secretly works for Master Li. I'd squeeze Lu Bu in there somehow.

What position did you play in football?

I'm 6'1(185 cm), my dad was about 6'0-6'2 and my paternal uncle is 6'3. Both played football. My paternal grandmother is 5'11 or 6'0 so that pretty much explains it for me.

I know I am at least 5 feet. Probably 5 feet 2 inches. I'm still growing, so this would change quickly.


EDIT: I was wrong. I am 5 foot 8 inches.

I was a defensive tackle, weak side. I had a low center of gravity and was really fast off the snap and pretty agile for a stocky guy. Literally spun around offensive linemen. My only weakness was that I was pretty helpless against a double team.

Last I checked I was about 6' 0.5" (1.84 m). Taller if you add the hair - makes me kind of look like an anime character right now. My dad used to be about the same height as me, but I think his back is slumping (one of the curses of the men in my family), so he's probably now about 5' 11".

I'm about 5'8, my mom being 5'4 and my dad being 6'2. My uncles are all pretty short (my theory is that they smoke too much), except for one whom is 5'11. One of my grandpas height (mothers side) is 6'2, while my grandpa on my fathers side is 6'5. I'm not that much of a sports athlete, more of a cardio kinda guy. I guess sports would enhance my height, but Ironically, I'm lazy.

I'm about 5'5'' as well!! I wear heels a lot too so I appear taller!! But among my friends I'm generally the shortest a lot of the time!!
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!
