THERE are virtually no men who are five feet and eleven inches tall, research has discovered.
Analysis of more than 100 million men, based on their dating profiles, discovered that only a handful of men are 5ft 11in while conversely around one-and-half times the expected number are six feet tall.
Nathan Muir, aged 34, said: “I am six feet tall and always have been. Don’t measure me. You’re not allowed to measure me. Fractions round up.
“Why would anyone be five foot eleven when they can be six foot? Not that it’s a choice of course, just a biological fact that I am lucky enough to be the beneficiary of.”
Joseph Turner or Colchester agreed: “It’s not that I have a suspiciously high hairstyle, like Jedward. I actually am six feet tall. If I wasn’t, how would I be the same height as all these other men who also say they are six foot?
“If I were 5ft 11in I’d probably say I was shorter, because women all love short blokes like Tom Cruise and Timothee Chalamet. But I cannot say that. Because I am definitely six foot.”
Dr Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Science, said: “It’s quite the anomaly. But why would these men lie?”
