Re: Short People Unite

I hit my growth spurt. I'm done growing. I'm doomed to be shorter than 5'6.

Re: Short People Unite

Im 5'3" and ive come to realize this. Were shorter because our brains our so important! Think if we fall down our heads have less distance to fall so in a way our shortness is to protect our vast intelegence!

Re: Short People Unite

i'm 5' 3"... like a lot of people! ^_^ i was so excited because last year (Triple Play) i was exactly the height of the goals (with the exception of the center one)... my height actually came in handy at various times during build season... it just invoved me standing very still and praying i'd still have hair by they time whoever was done with whatever they were doing.

Re: Short People Unite

I'm representing the 5'0" girls here..i'm a junior an i still dont think i've had my grow spurt..haha kinda sad, but as i'm always told "great things come in small packages!" I'm not really sad about being short because we have our advantages..an besides when i'm able to reach the tetras of Triple Play i'm satisfied. I'm used to really tall people, an i get called so many names, but it doesnt phase me anymore. I'm proud of who i am. I love getting underestimated by people an having them surprised when i do sumthing they think i cant. Power to them all!

Re: Short People Unite

Freshman in college and 5' even
and i was told in 8th grade i was pretty much done growing...

although there is hope for some, my brother was short in high school, around junior and senior year he grew a LOT and is now taller than my dad.....he's now 21 and 5' 8" maybe?
My brother's Ogre, and i'm actually his sister, maybe when I go home we'll take a height comparison picture, just for CD

I enjoy being short, it makes me who I am, as being in FIRST did and as my new conquest, Eckerd College Search and Rescue will......

Re: Short People Unite

Man, I'm disappointed. All the negativity the VC ( I don't know Steve, that makes me think of Viet Cong. I guess they were short too...) has put up with, and they aren't even politically correct. I'm only a few (9) inches too big, and the rest of of "talls" feel left out! Where's your "tall clause" in the club??? The minority shall unite!

Re: Short People Unite

Our family is generally short. All the women on my mother's side are 5'5 and shorter. I guess it's the French in us? oO? Napoleon complex.

I don't know. I guess I like being "short". o_o It's bad when I need to pull the chain on lights, or reach stuff high up. However, when I need to assemble/disassemble boxs or various components I can fit into small places.. And my hands are smaller to. ^_^ That helps a lot, especially with electrical stuff.
