    Any correlation between wingspan and height?

    I heard that you should be about as tall as your wingspan. I'm 6'2" and my wingspan is 6'7", so maybe I still have a growth spurt left in me?

    No, that's actually the correct term. Not armspan.

    Yes there is a correlation in the taller you are the longer your wingspan, but your height is not exactly your wingspan some people just have long arms.

    my wingspan is 6'5. thats 7 inches taller than my height. i was actually googling this the other day out of curiosity. apparently it could indicate some disease that makes you die early. however, abnormally long limb length is only one symptom.

    abe lincoln supposedly had it

    I've been told my boxing skill is due to "lucky genetics" which has bestowed upon me a wingspan of 6'5 at a height of 5'10''-5'11''. Then again, maybe I'm just a badass. I really hope I grow more. My arms are ridiculously long compared to my body. Arms that should probably be around 17'' are around 16.5''... <insert sad pathetic face here>

    Oh yeah, I got completely off topic, yes there is a correlation, but it is not exact. a difference of 3-4 inches is fairly normal.
    Hate is a powerful word; I, in turn, am a powerful man, borne from it. Your fear is my strength, your insecurity, my pride. All i have ever known is loathing... You toss aside my teachings to preach of love, which you know nothing of?! I know love... Let me show you the way. Hate... Hate was my first love.

    The demons are sleepless and immaterial, death is at hand, and I am weak. Lord, help me; do not let Thy creature perish, for Thou carest for me in my misery.

    Oh my god, that Marfan **** is scaring me. I consider my chest to be one of my best features, but it just naturally sticks out a ton and the muscle on top of it makes it just look large, but I am pretty sure I have pectus carinatum. That on top of the retinal stuff and the long limbs is really scaring the **** out of me.
