Taller than the Great Pyramid of Giza even in its Tura limestone-encased heyday, but still considerably than shorter than, say, Thriller-era Michael Jackson's Empire State Building, if you mean in terms of sheer presence... 8)

I had Von right next to me having 4 cigarrettes in a row without noticing it was him (the worst mistake of my life) I was only slightly taller than him, my height is 1.81cm. so I assume he is between 1.79-1.80cm (:

yeah, Ben & Chris are dwarfs and Andrew is maybe even shorter then them, so it must be some NBA Von's incarnation you saw :lol: :wink:

Later that day I found out it was him, he was unrecognizable, he was wearing no shades, a beanie and a very big sweatshirt, I also wasnt aware that he had a beard, he went to a store infront of the hotel and buyed 2 vodka bottles and cranberry juice, minutes later Ben and Chris came out and when I asked them about him they told me that he just went out to have a cigarrette :S

platform shoes (like Putin, Kim or Sarko), there's no other explanation of this.

In that photo I think they're actually half-sitting on the table behind them, not properly standing up.

I will confirm that..

Chris is about 6 inches taller than me and Ben slightly shorter than Chris.

Andrew was lurking about somewhere that night, so I did not meet him; but from the photos I am guessing he must stand about 5'11'
They are not very atll I can confirm that and Von is shorter than Ben

I'm 6.2. I've stood by him several times and I assure you he's approx. 5.6. I'm sure Quiff will testify to this. :innocent:
