short and proud... lol 5 feet and 11 inches.. i count the inches.

do you mean four eleven?

i'm five foot six, err, with heels five eight, i'm average i guess.

Cuz I know that some asian (ethnic) groups are shorter than other Asian (ethnic) groups. For example, I found that Chinese, Japanese, and Korean are taller than other Asian groups, and Lao & Thai are about average height using American standard height measurement.

Thus, most Lao(tian) and Thai that I had encountered and/or observed are around 5'5" to 5'9" on average; however, I know that specific Asian ethnic groups that are really really really short!

One million dollar question: Which country or people is the tallest in the world and why?

You will be surprise!

If your 178cm your not 5'10". Your actually average height (your 5'8"). To be 5'10" you have to be at least 182.88cm haha^the dutch? something in their food, i can't remember.

i'm 178cm so.. 5'10 i think

Well, you get partial credit haha.

^i just did a height converter and it came out 5'10

so i was right about the dutch?

hmm...that's weird because as we all know:

1 Inch = 2.54 cm

1 Feet = 30.48 cm

1 Feet = 12 Inch

Thus, 1 centimeter is approximately 0.0328 foot, so 178cm X .0328 = about 5'8".

Maybe I did something wrong, which can very well be, but I'll double check my work later, but it would be nice if someone else can double check my work?

Regarding Dutch you are partially correct! But you have to be more specific...haha

hey, i know this is an old post but, i just had to do the calculations...

according to your info, 5'10 would be the correct height.

1 foot = 30.48 cm >>> 30.48cmx5ft= 152.4cm

178cm-152.4cm= 25.6cm (to get inches)

(leftover cm converted to in)

25.6cm/2.54cm= 10.08in

Therefore, he is 5'10!

i'm also 4'11 so don't cry lol! i'm short but dammit it's alright ...so i'm telling myself it is.

Don't worry about that. I'm shorter than you. I'm 4'10 1/2" and weighs 90 lbs. Dream guy height, has to be taller than me of course. I would say at 5'7''. I don't really want that tall of a man since I'm so short.

Noi got the calculations correctly and you did too Champ. You just interpreted it wrong. When you multiply 178 cm x .0328 ft/cm, you end up with 5.84 ft. That is probably why you thought it was 5'8''. However, the 0.8 is just the fraction of the feet. So you take that and multiply it by 12 in and you end up with 10.08 in. Thus, he is 5'10''. I know Noi already pointed that out, but I just wanted to see where you went wrong with your calcs. Didn't mean to be facetious. You got everything pretty much right.

Wait, is this height thingy only for Laotian people or is it for ALL ASIANS?

Cuz I know that some asian (ethnic) groups are shorter than other Asian (ethnic)

groups. For example, I found that Chinese, Japanese, and Korean are taller than

other Asian groups, and Lao & Thai are about average height using American standard

height measurement.

Thus, most Lao(tian) and Thai that I had encountered and/or observed are around

5'5" to 5'9" on average; however, I know that specific Asian ethnic groups that are really

really really short!Hmmm....interesting.....mostly chinese, japanese, or korean that I have known pretty

much they are short. But interesting. I'm Lao and I'm 5'7. I guess you can say I came

from a tall family. So, my ideal guy has to be at least around 5'10-6'0 in heights cuz

when I wear heals I don't want to tower over them

haha silly me! It was late at night when I was doing the math and I didn't even finish the entire process haha Thanks for checking the calculations and point out the missing step. I didn't even have time to return to re-check the work, just now. Good catch to all!Noi got the calculations correctly and you did too Champ. You just interpreted it wrong.
