    Do some yoga and you might get there. My dad's 60 something, and he started doing yoga and grew an inch.
    Did he measure his height in the morning? We're all 1cm - 2.5cm taller when we get out of bed after a night of sleep.

    I don't think I'd want to try yoga. Thanks for the suggestion though!

    6ft last time I measured.

    Can't imagine I'd be any taller but who knows.

    6'2. So, biggish, not really giant but definitely not friendly.

    5 ft 7 here, so definitely not a giant. But that's fine by me, I wouldn't want to be really tall - I've seen people struggle with legroom / headroom etc.

    I've not been properly measured by someone taller than me recently so results range from 6'2" to 6'4", I sometimes still feel short though. I'd like to get to 6'6" before I turn 20. ( 4 inches in 4 years sounds do-able... with an extreme growth spurt)

    The title was my attempt to be creative, please just humour me as I am feeling rather ill today

    So after the release of the BFG film, I was wondering how tall the population of TSR truly is. Do you have any problems being extremely tall? Or do you get teased for being small? Have you had a massive growth spurt recently?

    State your height in the comments!

    I am 5'11 I think
    :facepalm:

    You could be going for a walk rather than perpetuating TSR's fascination with height.

    But I see you've been here a month, and you're staff; clearly you don't need to know the site to get a job here.

    Ontopic: from what I've seen of it, the film deviates further from the book than I'm happy with. Think I'll stick to the cartoon from when I was a sprog.

    Apologies, I was not aware there was a fascination with height

    I am actually an intern I've only seen snippets of the film but the CGI looked a bit... meh sometimes!

    As for going for a walk, I shall grant your wish and go on my lunch break

    I think I'm around 5 ft 7 and tbh I'm shorter than all my friends and I think 5" 7 is pretty average. I'm not tall but I'm not short either
