    Of all the fine posters that grace this wonderful message board, have you ever wondered who is the tallest? The shortest? The oldest? The youngest?

    Well, you may not have wondered these things, but maybe others have.

    So if you are willing to share, and think that you might qualify in one of the categories listed below, post your claim and then we will compare. Since we are all honest people, we can assume that no one will lie.

    Both male and female categories:

    Tallest
    Shortest
    Heaviest
    Lightest
    Oldest
    Youngest

    Combined male/female categories:

    Most children
    Most grandchildren
    Most great-grandchildren
    Most siblings

    And any other categories you can think of that might be fun.

    I may not be the oldest here but probably close to it at 68 this month; I expect I’ll probably be beaten on that.

    I may hold the record with the longest marriage to the same woman without a break? 1965 to present.

    But I suspect that I’ve voted in more elections than anyone else here has: I’ve voted in all 23 general and mid-term elections since and including 1964. Some mayoral elections are held in odd numbered years, so someone here may be in one of those cities, providing a solid potential numerical advantage.

    Up until a month ago, I was probably the male with the longest hair. They cut a 22" pony tail off me, and I donated it to people that make wigs for cancer patients. Took seven years to grow it.

    Probably not the youngest man, at 29.

    Good chance at shortest and heaviest, though. I'm 5'7" and just weighed myself at 268 pounds-- before anyone snickers at that, electrical conductivity says just under 200 of that is lean. I'm only about 40-45 pounds overweight.
