    Post How tall would you like to be?

    Have any of you thought about how tall you would like to be? Would it be something different from your present height?

    Many people want to be taller. It is an advantage in certain sports (basketball and volleyball). It is helpful if you are confronted by an assailant. Some people claim it is an advantage in applying for jobs or getting elected to office. And many claim it is a big advantage in social situations.

    But being shorter has advantages in other sports (gymnasts and jockeys).

    And many claim that smaller people are healthier and less prone to injury.

    Vote in the poll for the height you would like to be and tell us why. Tell us your present height and any other comments.

    I'm 6'3" so I'm happy with my height.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I'm six foot even. It's a good height but I would rather be six foot three or four. That's the perfect athletic height.

    Couldn't help it. As soon as I saw this thread I knew Skee-lo must be mentioned immediately.

    Re: How tall would you like to be?

    I'm 6'1" now and I like the height, but sometimes I wish I were about 5'9". Nothing worse than going to a concert and blocking views of the people behind me. I hate that, but I also don't want to be relegated to the backrow cuz I'm not all that tall anyways, dammit.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I've been short all my life, 5'5".

    It's hard buying pants that fit.
