    I always thought I was around 5'10" or maybe 5'11"

    I just found out I am only 5'9.5"...no wonder BranndonC seemed so tall :crysmilie:

    That's still 0.5" taller than me. I don't mind being short... I fit into smaller places and don't bump my head as often.

    Short guys make better fighter pilots under hard G. There are advantages where you least expect them.

    depends on how tall you are I guess. :haha:

    just playin', most every kid I knew growing up wanted to be freaky tall. Not just 6'4 or something but like 6'10 or 7'. Guess this is what the popularization of the NBA has done to america's youth. lol! I think when I get old I'll be glad Im not super tall... seems like really tall people have medical issues and bad joints at a younger age than us "short" guys do.

    I wish I was couple inches shorter so asian broads would quit asking me to get stuff off the top shelf for them at the grocery store.

    I wish i could grow taller. I dont think i have grown at all in about a year. My little brother who is 15, is taller then me now. I wish i could get up to 6 foot but i doubt that will happen.. for the record i'm just barely over 5-10
