As part of my "QUEST FOR THE CLUBE", I'll be asking some innocuous questions, and one came to mind. Who are the tallest male and female members of Cyburbia?

Let's see how everyone measures up. I'm positive I'm not the tallest guy, but I'll throw my height in -- I'm an even 6 feet tall.

6' 1" and change


An interesting corollary: Who is the heaviest? (Which doesn't necessarily mean 'fattest'.) - I'm about 220lbs which includes my stockpile paunch.

I'll add mine, though I know I won't be the tallest, I might challenge for the "heaviest."

6-1, 255

I'm only 5'10" (178cm), weighing in at 185lbs/84kg (I'm big boned, okay?).

Donk is pretty tall - gotta be at least 6'4". He's a skinny b*****d too ;)

That seems a little heavy... I figured all that rock you smoke would have kept your weight down a bit more. ;-)

5' 10" / 178 cm), 170 pounds / 77 kilograms / 12.1 bloody stone.

I'm struggling to lose about 10 to 15 pounds. I'd like to have it off before the Laefest, but I doubt it.

On a related note:

Actually 6'0''
You need to get a hold of the Weekly World News. Your photo could grace the front page at supermarket stands across the world! Every other week they seem to have an article like "world's fattest couple gives birth to Batboy....". And the name 'Rumpy' has headline written all over it.....

Uh oh....Maister has finally tipped his hand on his source where he gets most of his statistical data.....

Nice, I liked the one where the Giant Crayfish saved the drowning boy.

I thought about asking for weight, too, but I didn't know how well it would be received. Especially by the women.

I'm at 235 lbs. myself -- down 20 since my wedding in September.

So far, it looks like Biscuit and Suburb Repairman hold the height crown, at 6-3 each.

Did you know that only 2% of all men are 6-3 or taller?

BTW, my 6-0 and 235 translates into 183 cm and 107 kilograms, for everyone else in the world.

2% of American men. I think.

I believe that some European countries are generally taller.

my weight is: 183 lbs. this morning.

I seem to remember somebody here admitting to be about 6-9 (206 cm), but I don't recall who...

I win. I'm the tallest at 5' 8". Thanks for playing everybody. All of you who think you are taller than 5' 8" are just cheating. :)

I want to know why tall men date short women. It took me forever to find a man that made me look short and that I could wear heels around and not tower over. Tall me that date someone 5'2" or under make no sense, that's just asking for a back ache!

All I can say is that it has nothing to do with the fact that many short or, as I like to say petite women like to date taller men. ;-)

I rather date tall women like you. My dating history has included 5'10", 5'11, 5'9" and one shorty at 5'3". Married a 5'8" woman and find the hieght compatibilty good, but not as good as the 5'11". I'd love it if my wife were just 2" taller. I still love her all the same though.

I'm about 1.80 m tall and, even though I haven't been on a scale in years, between 70 and 75 kg.

A very average guy. :-\

As a friend of mine once said (she was nearly as big around as tall) 'I wish we'd make the jump to metric - my weight actually sounds normal in kilograms' ;-)

As for myself, I'm about 1.9 meters and 84 Kg :-0
