    Do you know if you're banned on old (good) MUThead that you're not banned on the new one? Wonder if a lot of the perma bans will come out of the woodworks Laughing

    You shrink throughout the day. The daily grind of walking, standing etc compresses the cartilage between joints, predominantly the vertebrae. You're always tallest in the morning. 

     ^^^^^

    But 2" seems extreme. Going to guess a combination of this, slouching at your family doctor (because who cares how tall you are), and trying to be taller for your basketball measurement (when you did care) all played a roll.

     It is extreme, you're right. I personally have a big difference because I have vertebral wedging between the middle 3rd of my back. Slouching shouldn't play a role though, because height measurement using a stadiometer has a protocol you're supposed to use...but in saying that, a lot of doctors will just do it whatever way as it's not really seen as vital I guess lol

     Yeah, but you're not losing 2 inches.  You're losing a tiny fraction of that.  It's really kinda simple.  Just a simple error. Especially if one if for sports. 

     

    I was 6'4 225 when I played football.  Problem is...I've never been much over 6'1 in my entire life and I wrestled 171 that season.  So....teams like to list your height a bit higher and the Doctor sees so many people, they're not exactly trying to get perfect measurements every time. 

     

     

    Sports wise, especially competitively you are right. Hadn't quite thought of that having not played competitive sport since I was 16...My sports science brain though immediately caused me to jump to the physiological reason your height is less in the night.

    The epiphyseal plate (bone growth) can keep expanding for a male untill like age 20 from memory so technically you could keep growing till then.

     so the "you grow until 16" is false right

     Well obviously everyone is different but scientifically speaking yes, it's entirely possible for a young male such as yourself to continue growing for a couple more years.

     I found the science behind it

     So which one is more accurate?

     Okay I thought I answered it sorry. To state it more explicitly, the first one is more accurate of your true height.  I'm generally about 189 in the morning and then 185ish at night. 

     Does that mean that 181 is the tallest I’ll grow to? (When I measure at night) 

    Accurate of your true height right now. You're only 17 so its a safe bet you'll still grow a bit

    How is a discussion about 2 celebrities political? Laughing 

     Because it involves metoo and feminism. Not that the discussion has Smile People just generally hate this broad.

    Hey guys, just stopping by to join this convo...very late I know.
    I was never really a fan of the MCU or anything like that before Infinity War. I had seen Iron Man and Dr Strange. I watched IW and my mate was bugging me to watch Endgame and I did-Loved it!! So I decided to go back and watch all of the MCU moves. I found a good list of what order to watch which started with the original Captain America. I just finished Civil War and Black Panther is next. Absolutely loving the entire MCU so far and I can't wait till I watch IW and EG again as I'm sure it'll hold even more weight.
    Cheers lads.

     Outside of NFL, MCU is my favorite thing. Always great to have someone new to talk to it about!

     Colton what would be favourite movie in the MCU and who would your favourite character be?

    I never knew what the hype was about but watching them all together in a proper order is just amazing. Endgame is up there for me as favourite movie ever and that was before I even had any emotional interest in the story.
