Well, I am in the 99 percentile for height in my age group, and 96 percentile for my weight.😉

Since this is no longer something the doctors chart at my age I had to rely on google, which says I'm in the 99th percentile for height for an adult woman (and would be even if I were two inches shorter) and 61st percentile for weight, although again at my age we generally want that one to be lower and it's not related to height LOL!

I'm also more than four times your age. So I'm not sure exactly what we're doing here, but I am sure I win LOL!

I can still remember a few years ago the first time since I was a kid that I was ever was face to face with someone I had to look UP to. It was rather unnerving and I realized that is what most of the world sees every time they talk to me.🤔   Especially in some areas of Latin America where I've traveled and met plenty of adults who's eyes barely reach my belly button.

  I know a number of people who can more or less look me in the eye but almost none more than 1/2" taller.

Well, I have to look up whenever I'm with my family; I'm tall but I'm shrimpy compared to the rest of my family! Three of my brothers and three of my sisters are taller than I am, and my dad was too, as well as two aunts and one uncle. But I never have to look up at anyone here except for the occasional very tall visiting foreigner.

@Kevin, @Aveschapines, I am getting a "404-Not Found" error when I try to access the forum's home page. I first thought it was just a problem with my phone but I am getting the same message on my computer too. I am only able to navigate from one forum to another by using my browser's history. 

Ditto, and it started since 11:00 US Eastern Time

EDIT I can navigate to other pages in a discussion, and to other subforums within a forum, by using the 'breadcrumb' menues.  It appears to be just the forum home itself that's down.

Problem seems to be solved.

This seems to happen every once in a while.  I just wait it out.

Out of curiosity, are any of you using a VPN?  I've been finding recently that there are sites (not this one, that I remember) that I have occasional trouble getting into, but the problem disappears when I turn off the VPN

Nope, no VPN.  I don't change anything and the Whatbird error goes away on its own after a day or a few hours.

Not a problem but just wanted to report that I found a way to break the frame on the width of the posts on my mobile browser (Chrome / android 12)

Interesting.  It does the same thing on my desktop browser (Vivaldi).  Is the effect permanent, or does it stop when you close and re-open the browser?

I also see the wider frame on my Windows 10 laptop/Chrome.
