Can you trust a man?

When he lies about his height? Joe Rogan claims to be 5'8" tall. The evidence strongly suggests otherwise.

Short people trying to claim those extra few inches are like the gamma midwits who don't think anyone else can notice they're not as smart as they claim.

Honesty is always the best policy on such things that can be independently measured and verified.

He's not that much off 5'8". Maybe an inch, an inch and a half or so.

Blogger DJ | AMDG January 09, 2019 4:00 PM  

I ran into him a couple times outside CapCityComedy Club in Austin back in 1999 or there abouts. I’m 5’11’’ and he was a little guy for sure. No jack’d arms or chest back then. And he was ALWAYS high as a kite. Im not great at guessing height but I don’t know about 5’5”. That seems too short. I could believe 5’6” barefoot.

I was liked him except the bizarre cockiness. All the comedians I knew back then were actually far different in person than they were on stage. Introverts, depressed, cynical, with self-confidence issues big time. Joe was the opposite. Much funnier in person than on stage. Way too confident physically than he should have been. Big chip on his shoulder. He was unusual for a comedian in my opinion.

The only other guy I thought that came close was an Asian guy named Mark Britton. Funny as hell. Whereas Joe seemed to always be “on” Mark just had a natural confidence and demeanor about him on and off stage.

Blogger DBSFF January 09, 2019 4:25 PM  

Rogan looks to be at least a foot or two back on the stage (you can see he's partly looking forward at the fighters), which will make him look a bit smaller than he actually is. Because Tate and Rogan are different distances from the camera you can't just draw a line between them and conclude he's the same height as her. Peter Jackson used forced perspective a lot in the LOTR movies https://bit.ly/2RjH5DJ.

Interesting.

When you think of the leftists who you know of, and divide them between those who committed to leftism for purposes of revenge, and those who, thought they may speak in terms of revenge, their main motivation for being leftists is because they see it as an easy racket(*)...

The revenge-motivated male leftist is invariably fat, short, or scrawny in his late teens and early 20's, or he's Jewish.

The racket-motivated male leftist realizes that he can gain power and wealth by making up utter bullshit that the revenge-seekers will eagerly lap up, so as to ease their consciences of the burden of seeking revenge upon people who did nothing to deserve it.

In the words of USMC General Smedley Butler: "A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

He's got LGS.

Men with Little Guy Syndrome do start spending a lot of time at boxing gyms at an early age.

And credit where it's due, they can take a punch or two. Honestly, not everyone can do that and it's nothing to sneeze at.

The problem is they have a sharp cutoff. Past a certain point in a match, they will break out their never fail 'step back and a make a T gesture with their hands technique.'

Complain about their asthma acting up before touching gloves with you and exiting the ring.

Yeah, he's that kind of fighter.

He's terrified of offending his masters, the showbiz left. He will stab friends in the back to protect the narrative, and will do his part to unperson/deplatform people for wrongthink. Just look into what happened with Rogan and Alex Jones, and Alex Jones isn't the only one he did this to. He's a coward.

C'mon Vox, this is silly. Rogan is a slightly above average douchebag, but he has never claimed to be a brawler or street fighter. I've followed MMA from the word go, and as annoying as Rogan can be, he has never claimed to be anything other than an average guy who happened to be in the right place at the right time on several occasions.
He has repeatedly admitted this, up to and including how he got his gig doing color commentary for the UFC. He made a smart move at a critical juncture in the UFC's development, and volunteered to do commentary for free until they expanded.
He now makes bank doing something any serious fight fan would love.
Yes, he's thrown some friends under the bus in various ways, in order to protect his position as a "D" list celebrity, and used this to build what is apparently the most popular podcast in North America.
I don't know if you're trying to generate controversy to generate some extra cash flow, but Rogan is a ridiculously easy target and you know that.

Blogger mike January 09, 2019 7:25 PM  

Les b anes and analyze it:

From this picture my analysis gives me Rogan's height between 5'8"-5'9", therefore as of right now it's an unproven allegation he is lying.

1) Camera at the chest level
2) Dana White is 5'11" wears shoes (+1"), tilted head (-1") approximate height on the picture: 5'11"
3) Holmes 5'8"
4) Tate 5'6"
5) Due to perspective skew White looks an inch higher than Holmes, 3" (diff) looks like 1", assumed perspective skew: 2"
6) Rogan stands a bit further than White, effective perspective skew 2.5"
7) Tate's 5'6" + 2.5" perspective skew gives 5'8 1/2" for Rogan
8) Rogan wears shoes, Tate has hair lets deduct 1" for shoes and add 0.5" for hair
9) Rogan's estimated height around 5'8"

A Joe Rogan anecdote:

Back in the days of MySpace (yes, children, MySpace), Joe was semi-famous. His role as the janitor on News Radio got his name out there, and then he got Fear Factor and then became the replacement for Jimmy Kimmel on The Man Show. Of course, Fear Factor was an awful show and got savaged, and The Man Show got cancelled the first season Joe got shoved in there, so he took some heat.

Anyway, Joe had a MySpace page, and some kid (he was like 19-21) commented/emailed there that Joe wasn't funny.

Joe's response was incredibly spazzy. Instead of a one-word reply or ignoring him or just a simple put down, Joe wrote paragraphs to the kid about how this kid (whom Joe didn't know) was a "failure" in life, and how, when Joe was the kid's age, Joe was a "national Taw Kown doe champion", thus proving Joe was a winner and the kid a loser.

It was eye opening, because this was in public----Joe was off his rocker with anger at some nobody disdaining him.

Now, Joe has a reputation for beating comedy club hecklers into the ground verbally, and there are some fun YouTube videos showing that, so part of me wants to believe Joe was just doing the same to the kid, not realizing the environment online is way different. But overall, Joe came off crazed and psychotic in his rant at this random put-downer, like if today some kid Tweeted to him that Joe Sucked and he went on an Eichenwald-esque 10 Tweet rant about the kid's family and friends and sex life. The rant seemed very gamma.I wish I could find it.

Blogger Thomas Howard January 09, 2019 9:20 PM  

From what I've seen, Joe's SOP when challenged is fairly standard:
1. Attempt to discredit the challenger using a dismissive tone.
2. If the challenger refuses to back down and the challenge is credible/not easily refuted resort to a freak out.
3. Block the challenger as quickly as possible.

The telling thing about these tactics is they reveal the lack of confidence required for a true fighting spirit. Reminds me of the time Jordan Peterson ran his mouth and was challenged by Rene. Simply pathetic. Womanly, without honor, the purest form of gamma male behavior.

Why do you care what Vox chooses to care about? Watch tonight's Darkstream. Vox amuses himself by throwing out what, at first glance, look and sound as if they are outlandish theories or statements. Then he sits back and awaits the usual rush to judgement by the idiots and morons. It's a way for him to blow off steam, a stress relief.

Those of us that have been around here for awhile know he also never just throws something out there off the cuff without foreseeing and anticipating the kickback, and even relishing in it.

I've explained my position to you quite clearly, you just choose to get hung up on a strawman of your own choosing (that we don't like Rogan because he is not Alt-Right).

Ben Shapiro is taller than Joe Rogan but his posture is so bad he loses about 2 inches. Figuring out height is easy and you don't need a reference point. It's about proportions. Look at the size of the head compared to the length of the arm measured from the top of the shoulder to the elbow joint. The closer they are in size the shorter the person.

From this image we can see Rogan is 5'6" but closer to 5'7" which means he's about 169cm: https://imgur.com/a/zewDsES
His and Mischa's crotches are at the same level which means their legs and torsos also have similar lengths.

It matters because for years Rogan sung to one tune and suddenly he's singing to another once he was made part of the IDW.

@44 "Coming this summer from Castalia House...
Roganetics: A Journey Into the Ring with Humanity's Greatest Fighter"

I'd buy it. And since Vox Day has sooooooo much free time {snort}, maybe just a novella, rather than a full-length book?

Or not.

@85 "Joe Rogan's dark side is obsessive promotion of hallucinogenics.
Jordan Peterson tells you to direct your energy into cleaning your room and only caring about yourself.
Joe Rogan tells you to get high and get jacked."

Vox Day tells you NOT to use mind-altering drugs and to pray.

I vote for number 3!

In my pointless guessing about Joe Rogan's motivations, I think he succeeded on his own terms for many years, now because of his popularity I assume he's been warned off somehow. Maybe someone threatened to kill his family. Or maybe he's just a cuck.

So Rogan is now the new Peterson, now that you buried that bone deep into the ground..lol.. I guess we can now expect a new book Roganistics soon hey Vox.

I've explained my position to you quite clearly, you just choose to get hung up on a strawman of your own choosing (that we don't like Rogan because he is not Alt-Right).

Let me spell it out for you in a more appropriate language: Joe Rogan is a backstabbing coward.

Clear enough?


No, you've not explained it at all. You say Rogan is a backstabbing coward. So WTF? The world is full of backstabbing cowards. You have not told me of the connection between Rogan and the alt-right, such that he merits discussion in this blog.

I did my own investigating and I figured out what you guys are getting at here. He really was alt-right, then dumped it for the usual cowardly reason of being a celebrity.

I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dRVXEh4GYs

NOW I understand why you guys are talking about this.

You know, I did ask if Rogan had a connection to alt-right ideology and, for whatever reason, none of you gave me a straight answer to this. I guess you thought I knew this already and was just being a smartass. Anyways, my question is answered and, yeah, he is a coward.

If someone threatens to kill your family and you think you're a ninja, you'll probably do something about it.

The reason is far more simple I believe. Once you get that big for so long your spending costs grow, the people dependent on you increase as well, and you get used to a certain lifestyle. Plus Rogan knows for a fact how much of his success was based on luck. Most people will fight tooth and nail to stay in the same spot rather than venture into the unknown.

He saw what happened to Owen. He saw what happened to Alex. Then he decided the sacrifice is not worth it. The guy is not even tough mentally. He strikes me as the kind of guy who's really happy to be there and is nice to everyone because he doesn't want to rock the boat. Based on this he might be a Delta.
