6 feet is not average height | American Census Data 2010 | ShortGuyCentral

This is from 2008, so it's not up to date current, but the point still stands. I don't know how people conflate 6' with average. On just about every website, people swear being under 6' isn't normal and makes you some kind of pariah. 60% of men are under 5'10 which means that average height is beneath that - 5'9
