    "Suspect stands 6'3"....."

    I was reading another thread earlier and all i could think of was WHY do people always precede stating a persons height by the fact that they are that height while standing?

    Do we really care how tall somebody is if sitting in the kitchen at the table? Does it matter how tall they are when prone? How about how tall they are when they are riding a bike? I just don't get it.

    Can we please stop this inane "churching up" nonsense?

    The clerk at the 7-11 says I'm 5'10". Close enough for government work.

    I'm guessing the OP is vertically challenged. If so, welcome to the club I'm 5'8".

    In professional football, when there is a false start penalty why does the referee always say, "Prior to the snap, False Start..." When else would a false start occur? Doesn't the fact that they started BEFORE the snap actually make it a false start? If it occurred AFTER the snap, it's not a penalty.

    The same reason babies are all referred to in length. You never hear someone say their baby was born 20 inches tall.
