The worst part is when they stop making pants in the right length and start skipping inches. Oh, we're sorry, anything over 30 inches is only available in 2 inch increments, so either your ankle is showing or your pants are on the floor.

I have a friend who's super tall as in way ridiculously abnormally tall. His family had to get the shower redesigned to fit his height as he was having issues not fitting in the space. seems like a hard life

I'm only 6'2" and I feel like the world is too short for me sometimes. I complain about it sometimes to people, but they say that I'm not tall enough to complain. But I see it as if I (someone who is barely tall enough to be considered "tall") feel the need to complain, then people who are even taller must have it absolutely terrible sometimes.

There is a certain quantity of comedy to be gained when a large group of tall people stands around a small person

It was awesome being tall when i was younger. Girls liked it, it gave you an advantage in certain sports, i guess it made you look or feel stronger or possibly more intimidating(not that i acted like that).
I seemed to attract alot of girls for a period there but i guess that wasn't just my height.
I loved how i could mark (catch) the footy (football) over all my mates when we kicked the footy at the park.

But yeah, as others have said, it aint all good. You take up alot of room in the back seat of cars, clothes shopping can be difficuilt (tops can be too short or the sleeves are too short, sometimes your shoe size is hard to get, etc), People always used to ask if i played basket ball or tell me that i should, people always comment on how tall you are or ask "are you getting(or have you gotten taller"? i guess that aint so bad..), sometimes people ask you to get things for them that they cant reach(again not really a bad thing), but yeah, the sore back issues...
Iam 35 and my back is quite sore. Alot of the jobs at my work are bad for my back. They are not designed for tall people. I get sore doing certian jobs, and if i sit in one spot for too long i get sore (computer chair, couch, driving long distance). I've had to go to physio, do stretches and exercises, use heat pads, etc..

Oh and sometimes you're not quite as big as what a girl might expect when your so tall. lol

I bet, I find it annoying sometimes just being 6'1 in the shower sometimes... everything is literally designed around the average human height that it might even make the simplest of tasks quite the hassle. Having to duck under doorways, driving etc...

That's because everything is designed for midgets and don't fit right with us!

Tall people should join together and enslave all the shorties to do our bidding and increase the height of everything! NO MORE SHALL WE HIT OUR HEADS ON DOOR FRAMES!!! NO MORE WILL WE HAVE CHAIRS TOO SHORT FOR US!!!

i am tall for a lady at 6' and shoes.... finding pretty shoes for large feet is not nice. And pants that are long enough! And shirts that are long enough, with enough boob room! Mens t-shirts are long enough, but the poor girls get squishy.

edit- right, nice stuff.

Um...

I guess I look scary as I don't get creeped on as much as my friends. Either that or I just look like a guy if my top is baggy enough.

Being a tall quiet Native American guy is pretty fun.
