    No.  It all depends on your heritage. People from Scandnavian countries tend to be taller than those from southern Italy.  Maybe it is the Fish?  7'7" compared to 5'2"

    . All it means is we vary in size. Just like dogs. a Chihuahua compared to a Great Dane.  Both are still dogs.  They know it.

    Yes.

    It depends on context, for example, 5' 8" is as common a height for men in Brazil as 6' 2" is for men in the Netherlands.

    Depends what country you are in. Average heights vary by country. 

    Norway would not be the same as Vietnam.

    Yes. 

    I am 6' 3" and live in LA. Most men are slightly shorter than I am. So that is about right.

    My son is 5' 10".  That is very strange in deed because my wife is Asian and I am his adopted father.

    In Thailand he would be pretty tall. In the Netherlands he would be quite short.

    As you almost certainly know.

    I would imagine that being completely retarded is common in your family

    It depends on context, for example, 5' 8" is as common a height for men in Brazil as 6' 2" is for men in the Netherlands. That's because heights in a population follow a normal distribution and because 5' 8" deviates from the mean height of men in Brazil the same amount that 6' 2" deviates from the mean height men in the Netherlands. In the context of Bolivia and Portugal, however, that can't be said, because 5' 8" is far more common than 6' 2" in comparing those populations.
