Superfly Gains An Extra Inch!

Sun Apr 13, 2003 9:05 pm

Two days ago, I had a physical with my doctor. I measured an extra inch. I was happy and especially my girlfriend.
How common is this for a 29 year old?
I'll be 30 next month.
I've been 5'10" for 10 years now and then I jumped to 5' 11"?
That is really unusual.

Now I know why Superfly was working in that afro. Somehow he managed to onvice the doctor to measeure to the top of the fro! My hair is pretty afro-like for a white boy (not like Clovis though), maybe I should try that, and finally break the 5' 8" barrier, lol

did you go for the physical in the early morning??

your height can vary by an inch from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep.

congrats.

You can gain an inch also if you measured from the underside instead of the topside...

My meds had me confused for a bit, I thought that SuperFly had grown to 5.11" and not 5'11", I was about to order some Enzyte
for myself but then my mind cleared and I figured out that Superfly was talking about height not lenght.

KROC, all that grief and you're not even 5'8"?!?!?! If I'd only known this a year ago...

I met my college buddies for a little reunion last weekend, and I was surprisingly at least an inch taller since the last time I saw them 5 years ago when I was 22. I'm actually now eye level or taller than some of the guys, which is very wierd since I've always heard that men reach their maximum height by age 21 or so. I find it odd that I've grown yet another inch (I'm now 5'11") in 5 years.

How does that song go?



Short People got no reason to live

They got little hands
Little eyes
They walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

Well, I don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
`Round here




Hehehe...

Sabena:

2.54cm = 1 inch
12 inches = 1 foot

therefore:

1.93m = 193 cm
193 cm / 2.54 = 76 inches (75.98 exactly)
76 inches = 6 feet 3 inches

conclusion:

You are a freak of nature.

Actually, Hepkat, I'm 187cm and I'm 6'2", so if Sabena is 193cm he is more like 6'4". 6'3" is more like 190cm.

Conclusion: Sabena is f*cking tall!

Incorrect. 187cm equates to 73.6 inches, which works out to 6 feet, 3.6 inches.

AA61hvy:
Some guys really have issues with there height. I was never like that because I am an average height. I am not short or tall, just in the middle.
"Some" (not all) shorter guys can be very difficult to work with because they may feel intimidated. I think that's really sad. I judge people for who they are and not there height. Being short dosen't make one less of a man.

Superfly- I know some people tend to be sensitive with their height, because sometimes it makes them feel less of a man, as with making fun of the size of their tool. I was just busting KROC's chops because he gives me crap about everything else.

Apathoid. Little guy, come on now...I boarder right there on average height damn it, lol. I would ride a Harley if i had one, and my ex-wife used to get drunk and hit me of all things, hence her being my ex. Sorry about throwing a wrench into your hypothisis.

The reason we're short is because most of our volume is locate elsewhere on our bodies  Big grin

You guys think KROC is short? I'm only 5'6"

I'm half irish, 1/4 Italian, and 1/4 Native too.

My apologies LH423 and Sabena 690. 193cm divided by 2.54 equals 76 inches, which equates to 6 feet 6 inches and NOT 6 feet 3 inches like I said before.

1 foot = 12 inch
76 inch = 6 foot + 4 inch

So... 6'4'' instead of 6'6''?

Sorry, KROC. I couldn't resist. Hell, at 6' 1", I used to be a tall guy by comparison to most. Not so anymore. They make them high school kids a lot taller than they used to.

But I still see no need to ride a Harley...
