In the 19th century, American men were the tallest in the world, averaging 1,71m (5'6"). Today, the average height for American men is 1,75m (5'7"), compared to 1,77m (5'8") for Swedes, and 1,78m (5'8.5") for the Dutch.


All right, gents. Are you above, or below average? ;)

I think I'm about 5'6 1/2"-ish. I'm the tallest one in my family except for my dad. We're all short in my family (and we're Swedish and Dutch, so that doesn't really make sense).

You're still growing, aren't you?

And yeah. *shrug* How long ago did your family come over though? I mean if the heights have changed that much in that many years it's probably more about other things then just genetics. I don't know, seems like it anyway.

That sounds a little short. Hmmmm. So where are all the shorter men that balance out all of the tall men in my life?

Oh I know a bunch of each. I think that it's about right when I average it all together, just from the guys in my life.

It seemed a little short for me too, when I add together what I remember from last time I went around Europe. I saved this from one of my recent facts books. *shrug* Dunno.

I'm 5'9", and here I was thinking I'm on the small side. i guess it's because I always end up around people who are six foot or taller
