In BMHS, one of the most asked questions regards the height difference between David Hughes and me. This article will bring the much-sought truth to light.

David is not known for being particularly tall, but he is still considered somewhat ‘tall’. This is amplified by the fact that David hangs around with a bunch of even taller kids who make him seem tall by association.

A sixteen-person census was polled with the following question, “Do you think David Hughes is taller than me? If so, how much?” Discounting the people who did not know who David was, 100% of those asked reported him to be taller than I am by an average of 1-2 inches.

Of those polled, a few said that they were unsure of who is taller, in which case they were presented with an alternate question, “If David is 5’11, how tall would you say that I am?” Nearly all of the responses report me to be around 5’9-5’10 in height.

Professional tall person, Nevan Barar, says, “David’s about 6-foot you’re maybe 5’9-ish.”

Nevan Barar reports me to be “Maybe 5’9-ish”.

After taking measurements of both of our heights David measures at 5′ 11″ while I am 5′ 9″. David is indeed taller than I am.
