The average height definitely seems to be on average appears to be going up though I don't know for how much longer
The thing I find quite amusing, is if in a line at a supermarket or any store for that matter, when 2 young guys are ahead of you and another behind, and they are having a conversation over the top of your head. Also, been jostled and they have said "sorry...didn't see you down there!"
How did he lift you?
One hand under each arm pit, and straight up so I was eye level with him, then as high as his arms would reach for about 10 seconds, then he put me down.

That's neat. He just did because he could?

Honestly when I'm in those situations it's usually tall folk who use to be either HS or College American Football/Basketball players

I think so, yes. I was actually trembling, so he would have felt that as he lifted me. It was great fun, for me at least. But, the other 'side of the coin' so to speak, is scary. He could have easily broken me in half if he wanted,

I am usually fairly secure about my height, but it does the situation does matter. When I was doing my residency, there was this huge kid that would come to visit a family member. I don't know his height, but he had to duck down to go through doors that were taller than the standard 6-8 doors. He would do stuff like coming up to me like he wanted to shake my hand and at the last moment hold out his finger like I was a baby. Doing that in my work setting was frustrating. Elsewhere I would have probably laughed and gone along with the joke.
