    That's men; I think for women to qualify as "little people" or whatever the hell they're called these days, they have to be under 4'7" or something.
    I'm talking about ordinary small folk who do not suffer from obvious dwarfism or some other disability or malformation.
    5'0", for a woman, is not far enough from "average" to be a real problem (the median height for an American white woman being 5'3" or 5'4". For an Asian woman, far shorter. For a black woman, slightly taller).

    My dad, on the other hand, is only 5'5" or thereabouts, and it's just noticable how short he is, especially since he's gotten older. He's way shorter than nearly all other men, and a lot of women, as well.
    But, as a female, I don't feel that this inherited "shortness" is as noticable on me, and certainly not as big a liability.
    My physical smallness misleads people into believing I'm years younger than my actual age, for starters, which is beginning to seem more and more beneficial the older I get.
    Of course, when I'm actually old, I'll probably be one of those brittle, shriveled up little things. Hunch-backed, no substance, no bone mass. Old people shrink, especially old ladies. Tall women will shrink too, but then they'll be average-sized. I'll shrink, and I'll look like a dried-up insect husk. People will patronize me.
    Oh wait, people already patronize me. They've been doing it all my life.
    But in a way, that gives me a psychological advantage as well.

    I am just over 6'2". I wouldn't want to be anything else.

    I'm 6'4" and I'd rather be in the 6' - 6'2" range.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I'm 6' even and I'm content with that. Fedor's size. Tall enough to punch about anyone in the face, but not so tall as to stand out in a shootout.

    Post Re: How tall would you like to be?

    From the earlier posts, it looks like 6' 3" is the most popular height. Also, a disproportionate percentage of the posters say they are at or close to this height.

    Hmmmmm!

    And on another thread, the average IQ is in the 130 -140 range.

    Is there a correlation between height and IQ? Has anybody done any studies of this?

    I think there is a correlation between lies and the internet.

    We should try making a poll about dick size.
    If most male DP members vote for 8-10 inches, I think that'll pretty much categorically prove your theory.

    Me too actually. I was quite tall when I was younger but I'm not too far over average these days.

    I'm 5'5 1/2" and I'd like to be about 5'7", except then I would be taller than my husband in heels.
