Out of the Blue

This morning on Howard Stern they measured one of their staff who claimed to be 5'10" tall, and found him to be under 5'9". A woman called in an said men always exaggerate their heights, and guys who are 5'10" round up to six feet. This echoes something a friend recently told me, which is somehow the first I've heard of this, and it explains why almost every time I tell someone I am 5'10" they tell me they think I am taller. Okay, it's official, I declare myself to be six feet tall, claiming the intentional inaccuracy is for accuracy's sake.

I always tell people I am 5'10.5 without shoes on, because that is what I am damn it.

A lot of the variation might not be from lying, but different shoes at different times.
