I just posted this in the short ppl thread, but I used to jokingly give short people really stretched out Hi-5's, but 99.9% of the time they would punch me in the gut, which would result in my hand being close enough to hi-5.


On the bright side, I can touch most street signs.

That's a plus.

Being tall has its advantages, like being able to see no matter where you stand at a gig

It's good and all up til you start hitting your head on door casings and having to duck constantly. Don't get me started about public transportation and planes. But it is nice. Pros and cons like anything else I suppose.

Meh, I kind of find it annoying that desks and stuff don't quite fit because my chair by default rides higher.

All the time. Cramped on planes, and I have to remember things i previously hit my head on or found to be a "tall people hazard"
Pro: able to reach further
Con: people nag you to reach stuff for them

Yep, always have to keep my posture in mind even though I hate sitting like this.
My chair is garbage, got it at Staples for like $30 on sale. Looks nice, but man does it feel like ass. Its mesh
Fortunately, I have a wedge pillow I put between me and the back of the chair, makes it all that much better - but man does adding a pillow make it look ghetto.
Desk is a little irritating,you can see the bar that goes between the legs for stability but that literally cuts the leg room down by like 40%. I find myself putting my leg up on it all the time, which is a horrible position to be in for posture. Whatevs, at this point im just complaining. You don't know what you have until it's gone.

At 6'1" I'm the tallest in my family, as well as the youngest. Its kinda fun to hide stuff on top of cabinets just to mess with people. Then again it's not so fun to hit my head on the top part of a metal gate hard enough to black out and fall...

What a coincidence, at 6'1 I'm the tallest in my family, but i'm the second youngest.

Being 6'5" tall mean never having to say "Hey, this car/bus/airplane seat is pretty comfy!' Overseas airplane flights are a nightmare for me. Especially for my knees.

And @Kira0309? Don't worry; we will.
