Ah, we went for height, not how cold it is outside.  Speed tests next? ;)

 

Because I like numbers I'll participate.  You're not going to find any significance from this though unfortunately.  I know we did this a few years ago, you might be interested in checking out that thread.  I'll link it if I can find it.

 

 

5'8 (172cm) / White / Person

I find it interesting how so many people here are like 6' and above when that constitutes a minority of the population irl in most countries (inb4 saq starts blabbering about heights in ethiopia or some shit)

Doesn't seem all that surprising proportion wise.

 

Most studies have shown that the trend in recent years is people are more tall people and short people and less people clustered around average.

 

Plus I mean male average height is around 5'10 aka 177cm  (us and europe are all pretty close to this) which places most of the votes on poll marginally above male average at this point - hardly shocking for a gaming community which you would expect to have a higher proportion of male users given the demographics of the gaming market as a whole.

What we're really lacking is some gender diversity to screw down our average.

Not to mention lack of racial diversity.

Ethiopians are short, cause malnutrition.

 

Usually nerdy dudes are taller and skinny. Dunno why. Or, short and fat. But not average. At least around here.

 

My mum is 173 cm's. Real father was something around 190. Might be why I am so tall...

1.88M or 6'2" (these symbols for feet and inches always mess me up because I'm so used to the metric system). 

 

Here in Canada as well, at least in the provinces I lived in, everything is metric except our height.

Well, it's not too surprising. Here in Europe at least we keep getting taller at a rapid rate each generation, and in the Netherlands the average male height is 1m84 (ie, 6'0) - which includes all generations, including the oldies, so that our generation (~20) will almost certainly have an average height of 6'1 or more. Other tall countries like the Scandis have averages of 5'11, again including old people. The USA, because of the huge numbers of immigrants from short Latino countries, has actually declined in average height over the years (I think it's gone from 5'11 to 5'9 or something).But northern Europe in particular is tall and getting taller, so 6' is really unspectacular these days. Bear in mind, too, that people on TIF are generally young, and average heights include older generations who are generally smaller - so when Sy says the average is 1.77m, that includes our grandparents so long as they're still alive.

Copyright means I can't view that link in the UK, but based on what I think it is, I'll let you start that survey.
