Shorter than I Thought

After reading a thread on the Straight Dope Message Boards, I decided to look up the height chart for someone who's 26. I'm very well-aware of the fact that I'm below the average height for this country. I just didn't know how bad it was.

From this chart, I found that the average American male is almost 5'10", compared to my 5'7". Due to (what I'm assuming is) the bell-curve-like distribution of heights, I'm not even up to the 25th percentile. If I had to guess, I'd say I'm somewhere around the 10th or 15th. If I knew any statistics I could probably say with some confidence just how short I am.

In the meantime, I'm going to try to find some Asians to hang out with -- they almost universally make me feel tall.

Stupid charts
