What can I claim?
#1
I'm currently 19 years of age and still somehow growing by a millimeter or two every month. It should stop anytime though, right? However, I find it interesting to see what others think when it comes down to height. I was quite small when I was in my young teenageyears but then I started growing (obviously). Ever since I reached the 183cm mark (measured right before bedtime) I've called myself a 6ft:er. Now however, I rarely go below 184 in the evening and I'm usually very close to 185 in the morning. Can I claim that I'm a weak 6ft1? 

What would you do? At what time in the day should one even measure oneself? Is rounding off, 184+ to a 6ft1 generally ok? Any celebrities who rightfully round themselves up the same way I would?

If you're closer to 6'1" than 6 feet then I see no problem with claiming to be 6'1". Celebrities usually lie about their height by 1 inch or more, rather than rounding up. If you look at this site and celebheights you'll it clearly. There are a few honest ones like Jamie Foxx, Howard Stern, Terry O'Quinn and Brad Pitt but they're the exception not the rule.

If you're under 185cm in the morning then you will definitely shrink below 184 throughout the day. You're not 6'1" and you shouldn't claim to be.

I agree he's obviously not measuring himself correctly. Everyone loses at least 1cm throughout the day

Have you ever measured yourself immediately (like within 15 seconds) after getting out of bed? If you clear 186cm I think 6'0.5" would be reasonable for you to claim.
