    I have the solution for you Drew! In the movie Gattaca, the main character Vincent needs to get taller so he can be an astronaut, so he breaks his legs and braces the bones a couple inches apart so that they healing bones grow towards each other and meet in the middle. This actually works, taking advantage of body's natural healing functions. Can't wait for the video where you do it!

      @Yass BA no experience in this extremely complex and dangerous field of surgery, they tried their best but its ridiculously complex and the treatment after surgery is equally if not more important, which sadly most hospitals are simply not able to handle. there are only a handful of hospitals globally which actually do it well, even if they do their best

    • AR M
      AR M Month ago +2

      @Matt Cottrell No, I think so. Waiting until the end of the month when they're contractually obligated makes it REALLY feel like they're only uploading videos out of obligation, not because they want to, but because they're being forced to if they want money. And after all of them are like "yeah I quit my regular job to be a full-time youtuber" seeing them all go on to be like "it's my contractually obligated one video a month :D" is really annoying.
      On top of them all doing no research into their sponsors so they all end up promoting some scummy company that scams people.
      I do appreciate that in Drew's case his required monthly video at least seems to be something that took a while to prepare. These guys who have their one monthly video that's just them making mildly funny comments in response to a 20 minute episode of Next or whatever... like at least put effort into your required video a month that is apparently your only source of income while you're living in a 3 bedroom house inhabited solely by you and your wife.

      Well that one youtuber actually explained it - that sleeping right and eating healthy is important, but genetics play the biggest factor. If you never slept and only ever ate junk food, you might've ended up shorter but if genetics gave you a potential height of 5'9" then you were never going to end up 3 feet tall.

  • Harland Spinks

    • Fadzai Simango
      Fadzai Simango 29 days ago +6

      ​@ThEsEwInGgEeK miri It actually does work. But like you said, all the hassle that goes with it is really not worth going from 175 cm to 176.5 cm.
      Also, even if the growth _was_ significant, you'd then run into the problem of having arms that look weirdly out of place next to your disproportionately lengthier legs.

      well, like he said, his standards were raised after the YT shorts vid, and he didn't have all week
      jokesd aside, I'm actually wondering if this would work...I mean, the pain, physical therapy, and waiitng probably wouldn't make the few milimeters difference of height worth it, but still, I wonder if the science would check out (UNDER SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES).

  • Richie Ashton
    Richie Ashton Month ago +187

    Everything you said around 9:43 is a lot like chronic pain. We don't have the option sometimes to not oversleep or sit and do nothing. And we feel those exact same things you said. Even mental illness. I have physical and mental disability. I sleep lots because I can't work, or do constant tasks. But in that I get overwhelmed, I get irritable, and I get depressed.
    I like how you worded it. Very relatable

    fun fact, height is actually not just determined by genetics and it’s still being studied a lot, but another major factor is the nutrition of the mother during pregnancy and the child’s environment, diet and lifestyle for about the first 2 years of life :) love your videos so much and BTW the blonde hair really suits you, Ninja!!

      @molly i actually very much disagree, i was a big fan of hers and most of her content didn’t revolve around makeup, much less makeup trends. i mean unless you count making a bald cap out of eyelashes a makeup trend. off the top of my head i can remember some of her videos like “turning my hair into a race track”, or “seeing how many balloons it takes to hold my dog” which i honestly think is significantly more creative than a good majority of the things drew does. like you said though, it doesn’t really matter who is more creative, just my thought on it

    In defense of Dr Mike, what he says is completely true. Because it’s a TikTok, it’s likely that much of his audience consists of kids or young people. What he said was “this will make you grow as tall as possible.” He didn’t claim that you could rewrite your genetic identity. He just gave you health advice about eating well and exercising. Malnutrition and an unhealthy lifestyle can stunt your growth. Therefore: eat well, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly to avoid stunted growth.

    My grandma always tell the story of how, when she was a kid (in the 30's or early 40's) she and her sisters wanted to grow taller and decided to buy a contraption in secret, after having seen an ad for it on a newspaper. The way it worked is it would let you hang from the doorframe (kind of like a pull up bar). they did not grow taller.

      For real. I have a daughter now so I have obligations for me to get up, keep the house tidy to a degree etc (she's still small enough to be a danger to herself so I don't have much of a choice there). but back when I was a young adult I would spend my free time literally napping or on the couch all day long except to get up and have a snack. Literally all day. I used marijuana to cope and thought the laziness was due to being stoned all the time but once I found out I was pregnant and stopped smoking I still found myself sinking into the couch all day.
      To this day my husband will come home from work sometimes and ask me how my day was, what did I do etc and thinking back it's like a black hole. I have no idea where my time went, the day flies by and I am frozen. Luckily he is understanding and doesn't get on my case and will take care of the bulk of parenting duties when I'm having a particularly hard day.

    I think the reason Drew got shorter is because he was sleeping so much, and sleep puts pressure on the spine causing compression. What the people who were hanging did was decompress their spine hence increasing their height. This only works if your feet aren’t touching the ground while you’re holding on.

  • Eddie

    Have you tried having a second puberty? Similar to the first one that destroys our childhoods, a second puberty might also make u even more taller-er! My buddy tried it and they're really happy with their results! As an added bonus, he grew this really great knee-length beard over night, and can now speak in sub bass frequencies! A great alternative to second puberty is wearing platform heels and a really tall hat, which is not only fashionable, but demands attention and respect! I know a cool clown that can hook you up with some stilts if that's more your style! Perhaps you have a good friend that shares your "lofty desires", you can work together and reap the benefits! Just sit on their shoulders wearing a fedora, sunglasses, and an extra long trench coat! All of these options are guaranteed to achieve that authentic "second puberty feel" of hitting your head on doorways, ducking in the shower, getting banned from most establishments, and making babies cry at very the sight of you! If you're looking for a bold statement height for a night out on the town, consider combining all these looks to replicate that "ultimate tall guy" physique that the ladies love! Good luck finding a blanket that covers your toes and have fun being a phenomenal basketball player!

    Most of these are definitely geared toward kids, but! If you wanna improve your posture or you have mild scoliosis and don't really wanna pay for therapy, exercising and stretching will help out a ton, particularly if you do core and low back workouts to help keep your back straight. Once you've worked on full body for a bit (assuming you're starting from scratch) some targeting things would be chest opening stretches, reverse flies to strengthen your back (and you'll definitely feel it on the shoulder your spine curves to if you have scoliosis), chest press (really focus on putting your shoulders in the same position and you'll feel them be more symmetric over time if you originally had one that flared out a bit), and stretching and strengthening your traps. If you can get resistance bands, those are also great!

      @Spider i would recommend looking into energy management techniques and plans if you havent already, and doing what you can to make things easier. like pre-made meals if you can afford it, or using a chair in the shower. i know its not the best solution if youre worse than moderate, but hopefully you can find some use out of it if you havent before. other than that, i just try to enjoy the good days as best i can. i wish all the luck to you, i know this shit sucks.

    • Chava
      Chava 2 months ago +1

      I find it hard to go to sleep at night because I just feel like it's a waste of time, if I just stayed awake all day and all night I could do so much more with my life, but sadly, I need to sleep to be able to do anything. So even if I'm awake all day and I should go to bed, I end up just staying awake in bed doing all the things I didn't do during the day, which leads to me being awake until morning, and then falling asleep right around when daylight starts shining, and then when I wake up at 1-4 PM, I feel like I've wasted a day, which makes me stay up the rest of the day and all night, and the cycle continues. It doesn't help that the more this happens, the more I'm awake at nighttime compared to daytime, basically being awake the same amount of time I would be during the day, but just flipped, meaning I'm not saving any time at all, or staying awake more, so nothing has been solved by this bad habit, all that's different is that I'm awake on a completely different schedule from everyone else in my house, making me drift farther and farther away from them.
