    I bet $5 you get (roughly) a Gaussian around the 5'7"-5'11" marker.

    All doorways should be 6 feet tall. You should have to dribble through 6 foot doorways to get to the basket on a basketball court.

    If I have seen less than others, it's because some 6-foot-plus guy was standing in front of me.

    Why does the 6-ft, broad-shouldered guy always feel the need to stand up in front of everyone? (At Disney, it was worse...they'd stand in front of you, then toss a kid up on their shoulders...if they just stood in the back and let the kids stand up front, everyone would be able to see.)

    But then you'd have a lot of big guys walking around grumpy because they keep hitting their heads on door frames. And I'd Be One Of Them!!:grumpy::tongue:

    To an inertial observer traveling from my feet to my head with a speed of 0.9c in flat spacetime, I am about 2'9".


    That means I'm 6'3" in my rest frame. :D

    How come so many of the guys here are so tall! :bugeye: I'm forever doomed to the front row of all group photos. :shy: At Disney, they have interesting ways of giving safety instructions, like, "The smallest person should sit on the inside of this ride." That's meant to keep the children sitting away from the doors, but I was the smallest person in our group, so had to keep sitting on the inside. :grumpy: (Okay, I volunteered since I thought the instructions were so funny.) I'm only 5' 2" (and a quarter o:))

    What happened to the values between 5'11 and 6'? That's where I am.

    Nothing wrong with short ladies. So much the easier to sweep you off of your feet.:wink: Really(when they don't freak out from being selfconscious) the reaction of a woman to being picked up and carried is priceless.

    Aww...there's nothing more fun than being swept off one's feet by a handsome man. :!!) I'm not self-conscious about my height at all...I get a good laugh when the taller folks bump their heads on stuff I don't even notice when I walk under it. :biggrin:
