If I could choose my height, I would gladly be 6 foot flat, and give you those two inches. Being tall has its perks, but sometimes it's a hassle to duck and squat and hunch over when you're just walking around the ship.

5'8", I think. I haven't had my height measured in years and I don't really remember.

A couple of inches taller would be great, especially at concerts when some bastard stands directly in front of me.

5' 11" just tall enough to be considered tall but not tall enough to have difficulty finding clothing or shoes.

I'm 6'1 too, surprised how many people are that sort of size here actually, don't come across that many in RL who are taller than me except for my best buddy who is 6'4

I feel really weird when someone is obviously taller than me and I need to look up at them.

I don't think there have been enough penis jokes in this thread.

Seriously though, I am also six foot one. Taller if I lie on my back.

Eddie, are you saying you're effectively a sphere - too much pie eating?

Taking the opposite tack - EoJ, would it be wrong to edit your post to remove the 'family' and replace 'ft' with '"' ?

A fairly dull 6ft for me - I've generally considered that it's average (whilst usually being amongst the tallest in any group). Good to see a sensibly sized set of people on here

Six flat for me as well. That's 183 for you metric types. (Hint hint, AE)

I used to be a giant among men standing 6 feet four in my bare feet, but over the centuries my legs and spine have shrunk while the lengths used as measurements grew. So I go by what is currently in fashion, and that is sadly but six of your feet.
