According to this study the average young man (2005) in the Dinaric alps was 185.6 cm (over 6'1"):

If it's true then they should be the tallest people in the world.

The peoples of the Dinaric Alps (a mountainous region that includes parts of Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, and Albania) are considered to be the tallest in the world, with 17 year olds having an average height of 185.6 cm/6'1.1" for men and 171.8 cm/5'7.6" for women. The countries that comprise this region have national averages in the 179 cm/5'10.5" to 183 cm/6'0" range for young men and the 165.6 cm/5'5.2" to 168.4 cm/5'6.3" range for young women.

Note: The authors of the study added one centimeter to the averages of the Dinaric Alps to compensate for unfinished growth.

I disagree that white Americans in the Midwest are any taller than the rest of the country. At 6'0"/184 cm I was still noticeably taller than average when I was in Colorado and southern Illinois; the average seemed to be around 178 cm/5'10.1" for young men, which is pretty consistent with the national average for young white men in their 20s and 30s.

They say the Frisians are very tall too, but I don't know if they're taller than the Dinaric people.

They say the Dinka of Sudan are very tall too. If you look at their pictures you'll see that they're very tall with long limbs. Probably an adaptation to the hot climate.

Definitely Dinaric Alps, but I may propose looking at the Herzegovina region which is inside the Dinaric Alps area. The average height of Bosnia and Herzegovina is 6' or 183cm, but the Herzegovina region has a lot taller people than in the Bosnia part of the country. Maybe even taller than the Dinaric Alps area at 6'2 average, everyone OI know personally trom Herzegovina is well over 6', true giants on rocky planes.

That's what everyone says about those guys and it appears to be true considering how tall the famous people from those areas are. I wonder what their secret is...

I know they're tall but I highly doubt they have a 6'2" average. You admitted that you use your morning height in another thread so naturally you inflate everyone else's height as well.

How can it be your true height when you lose most of it in the first 2 hours? And where did you get the idea that people get measured in the morning? Stop lying to yourself dude. You're 5'7".

I wrote it in the other reply so go read it. Won't repeat it twice. Are you not from Europe or something ? We get measured at PE in the morning ? I measured 5'8 and I'll keep telling that to everybody and you won't do shit about it.

Good day.

First, by other reply I meant in the other thread. Resorted to name calling already I see ?

I used to be insecure over being 5'8. But I don't really care anymore as you're the living proof that height doesn't make a great person. Also I'm not gonna reply to you anymore.
