It certainly seems that we have a preponderance of tall female aquarists here, but I am comforted by the knowledge that LMW80 has my back.

How's that possible TankGirl? I mean, I know that LMW80 probably doesn't even reach your shoulder...

You don't know from tall....beteween the two aquarium societies in my province, something like 6 of our members have the following criteria...under 25 years, female, over 6'3"....one is 6'7"...makes me feel like a garden gnone.

At age 16 I wasn't 5'8. By age 18 I was 5'11. I think it's very common for boys to have a growth spurt in their latter teens. Now that I'm approaching 50, I think I have the usual back probs that come with compression of the spinal disks. Nothing to look forward to, and I often wonder if a growth spurt in the teens contributes to the condition in later life.

I dunno... my daughter looks like she will be taller than both her parents, and I know lots of people between the ages of 14-22 that are easily 2"-5" taller than their tallest parent.

My shrinking uncle unfortunetly has been through lots of radiation and chemo for a tumor near his optic nerve. I think that might have something to do with it cause he has shrunk at least 2 inches if not more. He was always taller than me and now he is at least an inch shorter.
