    Imagine someone you know who is about 5 foot tall.

    Now imagine someone you know who is about 6 foot tall.

    Now imagine them standing next to each other, and what is the imagined height difference?

    It's weird, isn't it?

    It's about 12" usually. Not sure where you're going with this but will be interested to see where you end up.

    I provide the ideas longers, I've got the notion. Just wait till someone turns up with the potion.

    I see that as well, and that is what I am getting at. I'm in the middle so I can judge this sort of stuff as well.

    I know a girl from the supermarket who is 5 foot tall, and lots of people who are about 6 foot.

    But it looks like a metre in difference.

    One of the weirdest ****ing things I've ever thought of, I can tell you

    Initially I visualised giant and dwarf, then brain kicks in with the gap is not that big!!

    I once got my knob out at the chiropodists and he said, "that's not a foot"

    And I said, "no, but it's a good 8 inches"

    B-boom:wacko:
