a small survey for a tall person's product

Hey there

This is Jheri and I am helping out a bit on the Colleenified Countertops for tall people. We're not making any money on this, it just seemed like a good idea because cooking can be a pain if you are tall.

There are some other ideas for products for talls and particularly tall women, but the maker needs to be convinced this is a viable product before she goes ahead - it is a small woman-run business in Kentucky that is tall friendly, but they can't afford to make… Continue

exercises for tall people

Cheyenne asked about this as I worry about it.

Some of you are athletes and maybe you can add.

The first thing to note is that I am NOT a doctor and you might want to talk to one who understands this sort of thing. Your normal physician might be a fine person, but you need to talk to someone who specializes in sports medicine. Get assessed by them and they might prescribe a few sessions with physical therapists who specialize in sports physical therapy. This makes a huge… Continue

Tall Office Chair - The Search - UPDATE with Solution

Search for the best tall office chair

So I stop looking like this guy everyday

So I'm looking around at buying a good office chair for my home office, but find that most "tall" designations are for people 6'1 and taller. Nothing against 6'1 people, but I'm a bit taller than that at 6'11".

That extra 10 inches of height and 300+ pounds of support needed means that…

a raised height cutting board for tall cooks

I have a lot of lower back pain when I'm bending over the low counter in the kitchen for more than about ten minutes at a time. My friend Colleen has a longer way to bend.

She and a friend came up with a raised height counter top. It is much cheaper than having custom cabinets and counters put in. They found a manufacturer and a product will be announced in soon on her blog. Feel free to share it with tall or even just tallish cooks.

The length and width can be custom and… Continue

a fantastic way to deal with stares and those questions and comments

Face it, it you are tall you get a lot of stares and questions and comments. I think tall women get it even more because it is more ok to be tall if you are a guy.

I deal with this by being positive. When someone asks a dumb question or makes one of those comments we all hear, I smile and give them a complement. It completely changes what goes on and can leave both of us happy. I've had some very nice conversations that have started this way and have been able to have met some… Continue

Tall Girls: Form an Orderly Queue for Twilight's Edward please.

I think I’m missing something. It seems as if the ENTIRE world has gone crazy for Twilight and the Totty Two-some that is ‘Edward’ and ‘Jacob’. Every day my Facebook updates are full of new converts with friends statuses proclaiming their love for for one, or both, of the hot, young men after seeing New Moon. I’m lost - what is it about the films and these two that have women from 14-40 yrs old behaving as if they’ve got a teenage crush? I’ve… Continue

Dakota Simms - Basketball Boy

Who is Dakota Simms?

Dakota is a 10-year old rising basketball phenom

(Story from 2009/2010.  In 2013, Dakota continues practicing hard and reaching for his dreams with brothers Maximus and Scorsese at the Ravinia Club in Atlanta, GA.)

Dakota practices everyday shooting over 300 shots. He routinely makes 50 3-pointers within 5 minutes. That is a shot "made" every 6 seconds; with just one ball! He is student of the game, a student in school and a quick study…

a height related survey

I've been corresponding with a professor who has been studying sexual dimorphism in humans - lots of traits that are different for women and men. Height and height preferences come under this heading. He has done a lot of work on mostly average sized people and finds that, surprise, guys like shorter gals and gals like taller guys. He has been able to look at this question deeply across cultures and other things.

Reading his papers, it is clear he was focusing on women under 6'0 and… Continue

Disney needs TALL actor on Oct. 14

Hello TALLS,

This is sort of short notice for a TALL acting job on Wed., Oct. 14 in Torrence California (near LA). At $108–$118 per hour for an 8-hour job, it might be worthwhile for someone to travel for it. They need a young man to play a very tall version of Zeke in an episode of the Disney XD show Zeke & Luther. That means 6'10" to 7' tall, 20-ish, thin, Caucasian with a pale complexion (he'll play a redhead). He'll need to become a member of AFTRA (actors' union) for the… Continue

A Melancholy Essay: Towering Lecture after Getting the Diploma

After graduating from college I spent three months thinking where field should I enter. A highly competitive industry of TV commercial production house which I think I will enjoy a lot or other field that there’s money and at the same time you could easily get into; like Paper Writing Service Corporation. It really takes time to patiently wait for a call especially in a company that really requires a reputable and infamous university… Continue

Why Tall Women Should Wear High Heels

So at 6ft2, I’m very tall. If I hadn’t noticed this fact, I would have found out very quickly – from the ten strangers a day who feel the need to let me know.

There are many strange things about being tall but one of the most annoying has to be complete strangers (or fashion professionals incognito??) who feel compelled to tell me that as a tall girl, I should not wear heels.

I didn’t wear heels until my early 20’s because… Continue
