    Have both your legs broken... :eek:

    Then have them (the Doctors) put those weird aluminum cage things around your legs (they have adjusters on them) and crank out the length of them (oh yeah, and they are attached to the bones in your legs:) ) every couple of days. By the time you heal all up you've probably grown about four (4) inches... OUCH! :p :cool:

    Hmm, I do about 100 a day, and it helps, a lot. If you get a pullup bar , you can buy one from a sports store, and installation is really easy if you've got a not so wide hallway, or a door frame without a door.

    It's good to grab hold of it, and just hang, and see for how long, helps too.

    well m8 they say that by the time your 18 your only at 90% of your height and you start to fill out and finish growing until around 21- 22 all i can say is eat like a b!tch, if you smoke quit now, as that is proven to stunt growth. your very athletic which makes bones stronger and improves your posture which will make you appear taller as you are standing up straight

    but eat like a pig as your body needs the building blocks from food to grow (Healthy food and high protein)

    if your parents are tall then theres a good chance you are going to be taller than them

    see people on here can answer anything to do with computers but dont know **** bout anything else :blink:

    good luck:blink:

    I know your going to think this isn't serious but make lots of birthday wishes when your blowing out the candles on your cake... You have three to four years longer to grow, so stop worrying... Second drink lots of milk that helps!!!:D

    17 replies (not counting mine) and 120 views - - if one could draw that much attention to a "real question about XP/computers" the author would be happy.

    <I think of some of the more serious questions that I have seen bumped in an attempt to get a response - geeezzz!>:D
