Posted:ok, so recently we discovered that my good self, Kiwi Bex and Kit are rather long compared to our peers....so we've started a tall spinners club!!



Rulez are.....you have to be 6 feet+ for men (183cm) and 5'10" (178cm) for women to join..but to make it interesting and a little fairer I've added a few other things in.



Now I want people to be honest, if you have over and above measurements of all or any of the following you may join, or you can be 5'9" tall (177cm) if you're Scottish and female!. (oh and please use both Metric and Imperial measurements so we all know what you're on about! 1 inch = 2.54cm. 1 foot = 12 inches/30.5cm) And yes all measurements are being recorded in a data base to so I can have a look and see if there's anything interesting happenning (yes I'm that bored at work)



Measurement to be taken are (with minimums)



Height = M 6'+ (183cm) F 5'10" (178cm)

Handspan (hand spread flat, tip of pinky finger to tip of thumb) = M 7"+ (17.5cm) F 5.5" (14cm)

Foot length = M 9"+ (23cm) F 8" (20cm)



And add anything else you may think is interesting, (unusually long appendages included....no not that!! eek) that may qualify you to join our club!



*editied to be fairer for slightly smaller Female varieties of tallness* biggrin

Posted:Gotta put the tape measure and calculator away... now here we go:

Height~ 6'3" (190.5cm)
Handspan~ 8.5" (21.5cm)
Foot~ 11.5" (29cm)
Arms Stretched~ 6'4.5" (194.5cm)

I had to make a mark on the wall and hold a pen in the other hand and make a mark when doin' the arm thingy...so yeah, measurements are approximate (~) but they won't be more than an half inch or centimeter off.

Lemme tell ya, being tall sure helps out when it comes to doin' horizontal maneuvers in front of the body with the 5' (152.4cm) staff biggrin

Posted:32" waist! *phew* Thanks garthy, i thought i was the only tall skinny (or should I say 'tall healthy') guy around (32" waist here too). Most other people i know that are as tall as me have like 40 or above inch waists or somethin'. Kinda sucks to buy clothes though..and when i hit my head on low hangin' things. But the few disadvantages of being tall are easily outweighed by the instant respect when i walk in a room and the R E A C H and the view! I oughtta march into the short peoples room and let 'em know how great it is. That was awesome Custom Bug, you tell 'em whats what ubblol

I think we may have to let you in cuz of your abnormally long footsies compared to your height...although technically girlies can get into the club if they're 5'10 but only if they're scottish....do you have scottish heritage by any chance Aimee?

He could join the club and if I'm not mistaken he's Robert Wadlow and he died in 1940 at the young age of 22. I'm not sure if he ever spun either...but not that I'd argue with himif he said he did!!
