    Quite abnormal, wouldn't you say? But isn't that when he's wearing his star wars boots?
    whats more abnormal was that his ex (kate) was 6'3" or thereabouts

    One disadvantage of being tall is being in the passenger seat of the car; I try to drive whenever I can. Except if mum's driving............loads of leg room!!!

    Im guessing we must, becuase a lot of the guys I know are all at the 5'11' -6'3'' mark... there are some below but they are a minority.

    ollie's tall, isnt he? 6'5" or something?

    no way!!

    i dont even think he's 6 foot...i would have said hes just approaching 6 foot...but then maybee its an optical illusion!!

    saying that, i managed to hug him quite well...spontaneously...ie without him bending down...so he cant be that tall!

    is that a polite way of saying he's a dwarf? A midget? A tiny person?

    I'll second that! The view is nice but.....
    I'm 6'3'' - try getting a seat on the bus, as a passenger in the car, at the cinema (watching Lord of the Rings almost killed me) or plane journeys in comfort - impossible.
    I'm not the world's tallest person but its a pain in the arse.
    However, I guess I should not complain too much, my younger brother is 6'8'' - and apparently he is medically considered a giant!!!

    What about getting on a bus. I have to practically walk on my knees to get to a seat.

    Is there a way to fill out when being tall and lanky... or does that just come with age?

    My boyfriend is 6'7" and not lanky. He would be if he didn't go to the gym though. He loves being a big man, but folding him up to get into the car is no fun.

    By the way, I also have a nice arse. Can I join the nice arse society?

    Eat more food

    Im 6ft 3 and I dont look lanky..

    And I agree with plane journeys/cinema/cars being so uncomfortable. I mean, as the general height of the population increases surely they should be thinking about making things bigger? Seats on a plane is just pathetic though, I have to sit on an aisle seat, otherwise I cant actually fit in the seats of the plane.

    I hate the buses, theres like one seat on the whole but that I can only sit comfortably. I'm beginning to fill out and I'm 18. But if your around that age you might want to go to a gym to help bulk up a bit
