    but the pros:
    no need to carry step ladder at events
    no problem shooting a giraffe. (it'll think it's one of it's own)

    also, i realized that shorter people are more creative and have more ideas than tall people.

    Standing at 1.89m..I'm proud of being tall, but being tall does have its disadvantages too.
    Below i list some pros and cons of being tall.

    Pros:
    1.)Can slam dunk easily when playing basketball
    2.)Can pick out items easily from the top shelfs at supermarket
    3.)Cleaner air up there (the fart goes to the shorties)
    4.)High chance getting a good view in most events
    5.)Change light bulbs not needing the ladder
    6.)Score more header shots in soccer
    7.)Better angle of view (see more clevage then most ppl does )

    Cons:
    1.)Alway kena top price (hit the head ) [by the way S'pore public transport is just not tall-man friendly.. ]
    2.)Hard to find a girlfriend
    3.)Hard time finding bed alive or dead
    4.)Pay more for tripod
    5.)Difficult to buy pants/jeans (lengths are usually not long enough)
    6.)Takes longer time to dig a deeper trench or longer self-scrape
    7.)Higher C.G. makes us feel unbalance easily

    Cool Re: How tall are you?

    I'm 1.88 meters do I get a cash award for that? Height is great for tennis, hard to get a shot over my head but i can run for ground balls also. Good combo. I also hit my head a lot but it is now steel. LOL Zemotion, I think 1.71 is good for a woman. fits better
