DS, I hope that your hurt feels better. Although, I am not that tall (5'7") I also occasionally bean myself, too. Usually, like bigdog it is the door jam of the car. It just makes me want to say many words that my mother would not approve of.

Those of us of average height (I'm 6'5") have to put up with a world build for nubbie people. I share your pain, DS.

(I spent a summer vacation in an island cottage as a teenager...I was 6'2" at the time, the ceilings were 6' even and the doors frames 5'10" at best. Wonder why I stoop!)

I'm 6'1" and am FAR happier at this height than I would be as a "nubbie"... You know, I'd have to wear a hat and have an attitude. Not my style. Also, I think I'd feel a little claustrophobic at 'events' such as concerts. My girlfriend is 5'1" and it's so hard to find a decent spot where she can actually SEE.

I'm "only" 5'9" but as a tall woman with severe astigmatism, I have walked around with a perennial bruise on my forehead. Remember, your average kitchen is built for your average-height woman, which I believe is 5'4". Between cooking in kitchens built for someone a half a foot shorter than me and having poor depth perception, I am always hitting my head on cabinet doors. Not to mention taking advil before a cooking marathon because I personally believe all the counters and stove tops are TOO DARNED LOW. If I was wealthy, I'd have a kitchen built where everything was a half a foot higher.

6'5" is average height? on what planet? robotopia?

i think 5'9" is average in the u.s..

i'm 6". an old co-worker who was 6'8" used to call me a n.a.p. (normal average person).
i only have to duck when i have a passenger on my shoulders. occasionally, a pipe in a basement gets me, but that's what the forehead bone is for.

Short people of the world unite! It's a tall person's conspiracy!

DS, hope your head feels better soon. I've tagged myself good on cabinet doors a few times, and it HURTS.
