    In the United States, the average male height is 175.7 cm (5 ft 9 in).

    Consider height with this as a benchmark.

    and remember the story of Procrustes, ok?

    It also depends on where you are in the country. To be fair to skull, native somerset people are normally pretty short apparently (based on my mum complaining about all the short men down south). That said I noticed a hell of a lot of massive beef cases at school who played rugby and that sorta stuff.

    Let's go over the reason why: firstly, you can fit better inside a cockpit. Don't want to be the guy who has a hard time keeping comfortable in the hot seat.

    Second, you handle G-forces a lot better. The reason for this is that your blood will spread out over a shorter distance, compared to a taller pilot's, and so you'll have an easier time maintaining consciousness under G-load as long as you maintain AGSM breathing. G-LOC shall never touch ye.

    It's a sweet gig and you should go for it.

    So...after appropriating a tape measure, apparently I'm completely unreliable with numbers.

    Turns out I'm 160cm, not 170cm like I thought...

    Oddly, when asked, everyone underestimates my weight by a large amount. My wife says it's because I have a statuesque body but, well, she's my wife. Other less kind observers have been known to say I "have a huge ass."

    Pretty sure you didn't do "circumference" (aka all around).... Sounds like you did diameter/width?

    Mine are 14cm; I have tiny, practically child sized wrists.
    Aka about 2" across....

    Idk 14cm is not quite child sized. I know a girl with way smaller hands which I'd call truly child sized. And she plays bass with those hands.

    On the other hand, bracelet of the watch parents bought me when I was in grade school still fits perfectly...

    I was trying to do circumference but whatever, I can't do maths.

    As for width, mine are a bit under 2 inches.

    Would you trust me as a pilot? I wouldn't.

    Oh neat, so let's see.

    I'm about 5'11" (when I'm not slouching) or around 180 cm tall. I'm... bleh, 170 lbs which I guess would be around 77-78 kg. I've gained a bit of weight over the last half year adjusting to teaching and not exercising last semester and this semester I've just been lazy due to the cold (hard to motivate myself to run outside when its freezing out).

    I don't really have a tape measure on hand, but with a ruler my wrists are roughly... 16-17cm around? Some error in that one.

    Well, this thread seems just about wrapped up.

    Remember that if you're 170 cm or above, well, congratulations, you've made it. You're taller than a TM protagonist.
