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

The tall club lives!!! I never knew or suspected there were so many of us! ubblove As proof that the tall club rocks, did anyone else notice that all the short and average people are taking a big interest? ubblol
I don't know all my measurements but height wise I am 6'3 and shoe size 41 euro (whatever that converts to). One of stupidest height related comments: how did you get to be that tall if you dont eat meat? spank


I said perhaps, and thats FINAL.

Posted:A potent mix of genes, weetabix, marmite and country air tongue My family are all tall and every generation seems to be a bit taller than the next (my mum is 6' and my youngest brother whose almost 15 has hit 6'4!!!!). When I was younger I didn't want to be tall so started smoking cigarettes at 13 in a bid to stunt my growth...... god only knows what would have happened if I hadn't had the foresight to do that! ubblol But I am over that now ubblove

it's sad but true - i can't keep away from tall men and thus looking incredibly stupid whenever trying to walk around with arms involved. We keep going in corcles - it's like having one leg longer than the other!!!!
