    I think 5,10 is definitely taller than average for men....5,8-5,9 sounds right.

    For Britain, it's either 5'10" or 5'9" (that's why I put I think). Probably the former though. Average female height is somewhere between 5'3" and 5'4".

    It's all relative....they're taller than me...they're 'more average height'....the difference when i'm looking up at a 5,8 tall and a 5,9 tall person is almost non-existent for me

    not necessarily i guess ... it should be nutritious i guess ... i think asians suffer coz of so much of the carbs we ppl eat .... at least south asians eat a lot of nans and rotis and stuff with every meal ... thts the only huge difference i can see in the eastern and western diet

    so where are u originally from ?
