AmyMar 14, 2021, 7:17 PM

ArthurMar 14, 2021, 7:19 PM

NatashaMar 15, 2021, 9:42 AM

ArthurMar 15, 2021, 12:28 PM

is it inches or feet?
for me, it's easy to count in display size

LinhMar 15, 2021, 2:07 PM

Natasha we actually googled average heights months ago and Dutch men are tallest in the world at like 6โ€™2 or something!

richard-kubinaMar 15, 2021, 2:08 PM

that's interesting! I had no idea the Dutch were giants

NatashaMar 15, 2021, 2:43 PM

richard-kubina can confirm! most prominent theory last I checked is dairy consumption; personally, my favourite theory however is that it's because a lot of the Netherlands is below sea level, so, from an evolutionary perspective, they're preparing for when the water comes. :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:

AmyMar 15, 2021, 4:09 PM

Natasha for some reason I pictured you closer to 5"5'

richard-kubinaMar 15, 2021, 4:15 PM

Amy 171cm is ~5'7.32288" !!!! ๐Ÿค“
googles says 171cm is 5.61024 feet and so .61024 * 12 inches will get Arthur to a lil over 5'7"
and considering he is proud of the extra 1 cm we ought to give report the .32288 extra inch!

richard-kubinaMar 15, 2021, 4:16 PM

Natasha gains the extra 3 inches in demon form (that is, in zoom meetings)

LinhMar 15, 2021, 4:20 PM

so Utsav Jaiswal how tall are you actually though? haha richard-kubina yes i think the rule is in inches you can TOTALLY round up since itโ€™s such an inaccurate system anyway

ArthurMar 15, 2021, 4:21 PM

LinhMar 15, 2021, 4:31 PM

hey - youโ€™re still taller than me =))

Utsav JaiswalMar 15, 2021, 4:31 PM

AmyMar 15, 2021, 4:36 PM

Utsav Jaiswal Okay you can be 11'11" and Iโ€™ll be 11'10" because Iโ€™m not very good at basketball

HangMar 15, 2021, 4:37 PM

Natasha do invite me over for that grocery shopping. i feel like a literal baby everytime i'm in walmart

LinhMar 15, 2021, 4:40 PM

Maybe iโ€™ve been here way too long i stopped noticing things like that. although i remember my first time in the US how embarrassing it was to not see myself in the bathroom mirrors. Although, my unpopular opinion is that itโ€™s not bad to be short. I never have any problems sitting in economy seats on planes or fitting myself in any space to sleep =))

KienMar 15, 2021, 4:47 PM

Amy dang we got a conversation starter over here ๐Ÿ˜‚ anyways im just your average 5'7 asian guy :standing_person::standing_person::standing_person:

HangMar 15, 2021, 4:48 PM

Linh I'm too insecure about it that I can't help noticing lol. however, have to agree on the economy seats or such. ๐Ÿ˜‚

LinhMar 15, 2021, 4:49 PM

Short people unite! Another advantage is I think children and dogs like you more =)))

LinhMar 15, 2021, 4:50 PM

Kien you are taller than chรบ Bรญch aka our tallest family member now =))

HangMar 15, 2021, 4:52 PM

Linh dogs no. children no either. there is this syndrome i often joke around as "Hang syndrome", meaning all things cute turn un-cute when they meet me

LinhMar 15, 2021, 4:54 PM

if you are lower to the ground little beings feel less threatened by you no? =))

HangMar 15, 2021, 4:54 PM

Linh kinda but i just don't smile LMAO
