5'2"

Oh EF you beat me by an inch! Remember that Randy Newman song-short people got no reason to live, etc.....
I always despised that song :D

I thought it was rude too, imagine if he did a song about fat people though, a global uprising. Or how about tall people song.
He was nothing to look at either as I remember. :D

Due to the effects of aging and gravity, I am no longer 6' 0" and have shrunk to 5' 11' 3/8ths.  I am traumatised by this fact   :P

I've also lost my title as the tallest in the family, as 15 year old son is now 6' 1" or about 185cm.

At the rate he eats, I'm not sure how tall he'll end up being considering boys grow until about 18

5' 9'' (176 cm)

  :(    it's not a good thing when the man of your dreams is only 5' 7''

Star, for YEARS I was told that I was 5'8" any time my height was measured....Well,  about two or three years ago, after it being YEARS since I had been measured I was told several times that I was NOW 5' 7"  ???  Sooooo what I'm trying to figure out is DID I shrink and inch?? OR was it that my 80's BIG HAIR was just always calculated into my actual height way back then???  :D :D :D

It's gravity and aging as Mike said, lol. We start growing down. I swear my mom is shorter every time I see her.

For some reason it affects taller people more.  ;D The pull of gravity is stronger perhaps.  ;)

It gets worse - I was speaking to my mum tonight and she thought I used to be 6' 2''. I'm going to buy another tape measure and get a second opinion.

I knew smoking stunts your growth but boy, if coffee does it, I should be thankful my son drinks so much of it. If not, he'd be nearing 7 foot by now.
