Just how did I get to be tall?

I’m about 6’4"-6’5" and I have what I consider to be a disproportionately long torso.

My question is, compared to the average person, where is the difference in height coming from? I figure that my leg bones are longer, but are my verterbrae slightly larger than average? Are the discs between them longer?
Do I have a longer skull?
Is it just that I am a little bit bigger in several parts and it adds up?

“Is it just that I am a little bit bigger in several parts…?”
We’re not too full of ourselves, are we?

I’m just referring to the parts which can be measured in polite society. :wink:

reminded of Mrs. Campbells’ statement about her husband: “He’s 6’4” . . . and everything to proportion."

Since everyone here seems to be so concerned with my anatomy, I would like to state for the record that I have relatively short stubby fingers for someone my size.

I assume that’s what everyone was concerned about.
