    Almost every male I see in my year is at least 6 foot if not over. I feel short at 5'11 yet supposedly the average height in the UK is 5 foot 9. Anyone else think this statistic is wrong or kept down by old aged pensioners? I barely see any male who is below 6 foot and those who are are usually like 5 foot 5, never see any 5 foot 9 males.

    There are so many 6'4-6-7 master racers about these days. Then again Dundee's quite a studenty town, so lots of those will be decently gened and well nourished student imports. When I've been to poorer towns like Newport in Wales, the people were noticeably shorter and also suspicious of electronics and written script.

    No there aren't.

    That height range makes up a very small proportion of the male population.

    EDIT: realised you were joking. I'm tired.
