Who is the tallest person in JavaRanch?

I am 6'5'' or 6'4'' or 6'3'', I don't know exactly. But, Is there anyone who has beaten these numbers?

And what's your height? Do you like your height? Do you like to be taller? Do you like to be shorter? What is your perfect height?

I don't like my height, I would like to be shorter than what I am and my ideal height would be 5' 9'' or 5' 10'' which is good enough for an Indian.

I'm 5'7", but also way more than any one of you can handle.

The Trailboss is reputed to be 7' 11'' in his bare feet.

I am dutch and I know many people here taller than my 6'4" (I would say 1.90 m).

Edited: I read my post and then an article.

How can Paul be 7' 11'' if the tallest man himself is 7' 9''? (I came to know about the tallest man from John's post).

Are you kidding by any chance?

I want to say that Paul is owning JR, hence logically he is the tallest person in JR.

Robert Pershing Wadlow (1918 - 1940) was and is the tallest human being ever recorded. He reached 8' 11.1" (272 cm) in height and 490 pounds (222.26 kg)
Alas! He never was a member of JavaRanch!

Don't worry John, I will fight for you. I will beat the hell out of him, well, ask him to come face to face with me. But you know? He won't, that's why I am so confident.

I am two meters tall.

I once heard Michael Ernest refer to my height at "six feet kajillion" (did I quote that right?).

Also known as "freaky big"

It would seem that I am the tallest person on JavaRanch!

I rule!

Oh sure, it looks like a lot of fun ... but don't get me started on whining about the downsides.

This is just one manifestation of the Paradox of Omnipotence, which is usually posited as, "Could God create a rock so large and heavy that even He could not lift it?" Whether yes or no, then how could God be omnipotent? This quandary is usually resolved by saying that the omnipotent one isn't bound by human logic, so He can both lift and not lift the rock at the same time. Thus, Paul can be taller than the tallest man, and yet not the tallest man.

You'd understand if you were God, though personally I find that copious amounts of alcohol can help mere mortals to grasp the concept, or at least think they do.

5'9.22"

Which game are you playing ? It this some kind of position on a secret map ?

I'm 1m80 tall (or short). Being taller than that would make life complicated where I'm living.
I have a burning question : do you, huge people, have special keyboards with giant keys ?
Which also brings the following question : Are you using your teeth to dial on small cell phones ?

Being so tall, a lot of people get surprised seeing my mobile phone, my mouse (the computer peripheral), my keyboard and a lot of other things. I like things that fit into my hand easily, and usually they are the smaller ones. But I do like big cars cause small cars fit me but it's a little inconvenient.

I am almost 6 feet.

I feel good of being taller at times especially when you want to deal with the things which are kept at the top! But sometimes it is inconvenient especially when you are travelling in a bus (which cannot really accommodate your height).

I'm 6' tall, but would like to be about 6'3 or so. I would also like to bulk up some too.

I moved from Kansas to Pennsylvania and got about 4" taller. Relative to everybody else at the mall. I can only figure they breed coal miners short.

I am the world's tallest midget and the world's shortest giant. Name the book?
