    Did we read the same thing? I read that thing somewhere. thought it was funny. I'm 6'8. get the basketball thing all the time.. People need to think of better things to ask than that. They should know everyones first thought when they see a tall thin guy is "does he play basketball?" It gets old after awhile... 6'8 225lbs.. i guess i kinda look like a basketball player.. but i'm not

    i'm 5 feet nothing:D i guess i might look like a dwarf to you tall people...but you know whats funnier, i have friends who are shorter than me:eek:
  11. 6'2", 200 lbs even. I don't get the basketball question, I get the "You should play football" question. Which is weird, cause I thought the steriotypical football player had no neck.:D

    i hope i'm not the shortest one... 5ft 1/4 inch.

    funny, because a few years ago i was 5ft 1/2 inch.

    i think i'm shrinking.

    i'm about 103 lbs (just got weighed the other day). i'm PETITE, not short.

    6ft1in 180lbs. I'm 15. I used to get the "you should play basketball" on occasion a rarity was "you should play football" the lastest i've been asked about 3-4 times is "Do you wrestle?" None of the people that ask me know me, those who know i play bass know i don't have enough time between marching band, jazz band, show band, First Edition Band, and Freshman concert band to do any of those :D BTW my dad is 6'7"
  15. I'm 6'2" and about 205.

    I don't get asked if I play basketball, which I don't.
    I don't get asked if I play football, which I don't, either.

    cubit: noun Any of various ancient units of length based on
    the length of the forearm from the elbow to the tip of the
    middle finger.

    Here's fun -

    yeah, yeah 6'4", football, scarer of children and small animals.

    CRAP! :mad: It's those damn villagers with their torches again.

    I thought I was 5'6", but apparently, I'm a bit taller than that according to somone who was 5'6"(I looked DOWN to her). I'm guessing I'm around 5'9"....which is funny because all my friends tower above me. :(

    I'm 5'10" or 5'11" I think, and somewhere between 160 and 170 lbs. I only get the "You should be a professional fighter or mass murderer" thing! :eek: :confused:
  20. Perhaps there should be metric conversions in the poll options for our continental-European, Asian, and Latin American friends. (Do we have any Africans on TB?)

    FWIW, I'm 6'2", 175. I look pretty ripped from a distance--I have big shoulders--but when one gets up close he/she can see that I have no pecs, skinny arms, and pretty much no gut.
