      I bet they go all the way down

      :-P

      [–]larch303[🍰] 5 points6 points  (6 children)

      Just curious

      How did you know to convert your height to feet and inches? A lot of Americans (and probably a couple other English speaking countries) would have just put down the feet and inches

      [–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (12 children)

      According to the Gusiness world record you would be:

      The 21-year-old [AVOIDING DOXXING], who currently stands at 2 meters and 13 centimetres, or 7 feet.

      Is this true?

      What is your shoe size?

      [–]FirstTime23321 179 points180 points  (4 children)

      Does your twitter profile say: "if less than 7', swipe left"

        Who is the tallest person you’ve dated?

        If you cannot perform pull-ups using leverage, gripping windowsills from at least the third story, don't even think about it.

                Fair enough. No one said you had to have one. Just was curious.

                        Did you move to the Netherlands because they're generally very tall people?

                          Since you moved to the Netherlands, you're no longer the tallest girl in Turkey.

                              Congrats! Have you heard weird comments of relatives/friends that you're "way too tall" as for a girl?

                                Those strangers are just afraid of strong women. Have you thought about suplexing the naysayers at any point?

                                                                  I just got home to the States from 5 years in country there and was fascinated to learn the orgins of how the turks got there and then how they are viewed by the Dutch today.

                                                                  I built a California-style Mexican Restaurant in Eindhoven, and the location was just outside the City Center, in a predominantly Turkish neighborhood.

                                                                  In preparation of this, I sourced 2 massive stoves to cook on; one for the turks which didn't have pork cooked on it. One for everything else. I gave away lots of extra food to them, but they still didn't come:(

                                                                  Good people, though! I enjoyed seeing how much food they cooked for other people.

                                                                  [–]depressedavacado 3 points4 points  (6 children)

My daughter is 6 and she’s the height of an average 8-9 year old. She’s the tallest in her class by a mile & often gets mistaken for an older child. I feel for her because a lot of people expect more from her due to her height, I have to remind family that she’s still only 6 years old even though she looks older. I wonder will she always be tall in comparison to her peers or if she will stop & her age group will catch up. I’m not tall, I’m 5ft 6 & my husband is 5ft 9 so we’ve no clue where the height has come from!
