should instead be:

a) 1-2
b) 3-4
c) 5-6
d) 7 or more
Two reasons really. The first being that I had to include metric and imperial, so an increase of one centimetre does not exactly equal an increment of 0'1". That aside, i should have just put it down as that anyway. But the main reason was because I was still heavily drunk from the night before and was in a rush to go out, so was not really concentrating on what I was doing. For this I apologise.

Despite this, enough people have managed to cast a vote as it is only an indicative poll - not actual science. Besides, even with increments of 1cm or 1" you could still find yourself in two groups if you first measured yourself after getting out of bed, then again later in the day after you have been standing for hours, since your body compresses a little over the period of the day. Maybe I should have been more specific and asked people to measure themselves as soon as they got out of bed.

Honestly though, I do apologise for this oversight. I was the first to see it as the moment I posted it and went to cast my own vote I realised I was in two groups. What a fool I thought, but then decided to be generous and drop myself in the higher of the two groups. But dont worry, the results of this poll are not going to be published.

Wow that distribution looks heavily skewed upwards! It's funny that the most common height choice is not in the middle. Hm...smells like some people are inflating their height!
