Taller Than You Think

Man-in-a-pub facts are always worth writing down and checking. Sometimes I get great questions that way.

For example, someone told me recently that TV presenter Jonathan Ross is unusually short.

“Really?” I said, “I always thought he was quite tall?”

“Naaaah,” says the man-in-the-pub: “He’s only like five foot or something. He’s a dwarf

A quick bit of checking reveals that Woss is indeed not as tall as Russell Brand but he’s still 186 cm (6′ 1″) which makes him taller than most men in Britain.
