Michael Beasley, I feel your pain. I've been going around with the illusion in my head that I was barely 6' tall for quite some time. Come to find out, thats only true if I'm wearing shoes. Here are the results of my completely pointless personal physical test:
Height: (without shoes): 5'11"
Standing Reach: 7'11"
Standing Vertical Leap: 27.5"
On the bright side, only a select few people view this blog and I'm normally wearing shoes. I'm still 6' tall in my mind.
