Do you consider adding a half inch to be rounding or lying?
#1
My question is,,do you consider rounding up to the nearest inch if you're at the .5 mark lying? It's obvious that adding 3/4-1 inch on to you're height is lying, but what about half an inch? I want to know since a half an inch is slightly significant and moderately noticeable if you're comparing your height to someone at the full inch.

Rounding, especially if you're slightly above the .5 mark

I don't see anything wrong when when someone does it in casual conversation no but only if he's .5 not .25

Well technically it is lying. Sure it's only half an inch but it's not your real height either. Why not tell the truth?
