*sences some flash back from a cartoon show called Invader Zim*

Non of the less! I have been talking to Grasper and during the conversation this question popped into mind. Are all furs tall? Just about all the furs I know are Tall, the smallest being 5'5". So I ask you know. How tall are you? Are Most furs really actually tall?

*starts to sing, in the same tune as the limbo singsong type thing 'how low can you go'* How tall can you go, How tall can you go

Ahem, Anyways. Go on, Do yer pollin. Please go to your voting halls now ^_^ '<img'> Okay I had better stop now before I try anything weider...

Great.  Here I am, the midget at 5'8. ':p'

I think the fursuits add at least six inches from the neck to the ears though; maybe that's why furs are said to be tall.  '<img'>

My dad is 6' 1".  I'm taller than him, so that would put me at about 6' 3".

I'm about 6' tall, myself.
The only reason for a correlation between height and being furry would be that the air is thinner at higher altitudes. '<img'>

I'm 5'9'' so I voted 5'6''. Although when wearing my shoes I grow about a 1/2 inch taller. It's quite odd that I'm taller than most people I know yet I still feel dwarfed by others.

Well it all depends on what we are measuring are we measuring actual height or presence?

Like I voted 6' as I'm about that, but people just seem larger then life to me and I tend to feel short.

I'm stuck at 5' 7", so I voted 5' 6".  I got the short end of the stick in my gene pool (no pun intended), not to mention, I've spent all of my years looking up at my girlfriends.  My neck hurts.

To be totally honest, I don't feel bad about my height accept when it gets in the way.  Such as:

Sitting at a concert, movie or show with a tall person ahead of you blocking your view (grrrrr)

Not being able to flatfoot any motorcycle I want to ride. I like sportier bikes and with their seats starting at least 32 inches off the ground, you are on your tip toes when your inseam is only 29 inches.  It never stops me from riding them, but it kills the idea of taking a passenger.

And when playing sports like volleyball or basketball, where a couple of inches would come in handy. '<img'>

I'm sorry, but in basketball, havig a small height CAN be good. How?
Try to get micheal jordan to steal the ball from a 5'7" person, he'll have lots of trouble... I remember in high school, in the early years, I had my growing phase later than most kids, and although I couldn't score points as much as the rest of the players, I could get on the other side much more easily with less fears to get the ball stolen... *grins*

Just your position that changes. ^^;
