    Height

    I was rather chocked when I was reading statistics of average height of Swedish conscripts between the years of 1962 and 2000. Year 2000, their average height only measured 179.9 cm/5'10.2")!

    I myself am also Swedish, I'm 15 years old and 193 cm/6'4" tall, and due to a height predictor which can be found here; http://my.webmd.com/medical_informat.../heightpredict , my grown up height will be 201 cm/6'7". My father is also 193 cm tall, and my mother is 180 cm tall. Most of my friends of the same age as me are above 180 cm tall.

    I figure I have a hard time believing that these statistics are correct; even my mother would be as tall as the average 18 years old Swedish male!

    So I'm wondering, where are all the short people? How tall are you and the people around you? (If you are not fully grown, you could use that height predictor too).

    > I'm 15 years old and 193 cm/6"4 tall

    Freak!

    I'm 5'11"

    This poll discriminates against hermaphrodites.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    If my mother and father were both 8 feet tall and I was 4 years old, 8 feet tall and 50 pounds, i'd reach a height of 12 feet 9 inches.

    But i'm ~5'8", and it says i'm done growing
