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_information/health-e-tools/calculator/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).

Freak!

I'm 5'11"

This poll discriminates against hermaphrodites.

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 :(

its a proven medical fact that the average male grows until he is 21 years old, so how the $$$$ is that thing accurate.

RoD, it is also a proven fact (I have no room to back the fact part up, though...) that male height growth typically stops around the ages of 16-18. You may be growing, but that doesn't mean you're getting taller. I've grown a lot over the past year, but I have still only got about a 1/2 inch taller. There are more ways to grow than by just your height. :)

For those arguing over the age at which you stop growing (I skimmed the posts), my brother continued growing whilst into his mid 20s. He's in the riot police and every year he takes a physical examination of some sort so it was all recorded for him. He wasn't growing much, only about half an inch every couple of years.
