    Because some of us don't measure fuel efficiency in hogsheads to the rod.

    2.0m for me, unless I screwed up the conversion.

    1 inch = 2.54 cm
    (1 foot = 12 inches)
    I am quite surprised that this metric version of this poll is much less popular than the other version

    6'6" ? Wow.

    Haha, yeah I thought I should probably think about it more. *pulls out calculator* Ok, I am actually 1.83m tall :smile:

    Ah...anonymity seems to be providing a more normal looking distribution. :rofl: 1.575 m for me (yep, I'm that one short person in the poll :rofl:).

    That's because the tallest people replied only in this poll. There was no one taller than 1.95 meters in the other poll.

    (I'm sure that's the reason. The only other alternative would be embarrassing.)

    Something tells me we have a few members who should either be playing on pro-basketball teams, or who have a bit of a problem with the conversion from feet and inches to meters. :rofl:

    Alright, alright, stop harassing my sorry ass :tongue2:

    I screwed up the conversion, I am one of the 2.0m tall pf members :rofl:

    Erase one of the 2.0m and add one to the 1.8m please :smile:

    a "what size is your penis" is next in the logical progression of threads.

    There I would screw up the conversion on purpose :biggrin:

    I'm guessing that was The Professional. If a person can't do the simple conversion from Roman palms to American feet and inches, they probably haven't mastered the metric system either.

    My actual height is 780 potrzebies, so it's hard for me to do the conversions, as well. One potrzebie is equal to the thickness of a Mad magazine.

    While I'm not extremely tall, I do possess 1.38 millihelens of beauty and only possess 3.26 HP (hobo power) of odor about me. I'm also a kilowarhol.
