    Some people are just dumb

    So, im searching on Youtube and come across a video of waves in Lake Michigan. This video just shows waves. The waves are an easy 3-4 feet. This guy comments saying they are only 1 to 1 1/2 feet. I post back saying hes dumb and that they are bigger then that. This is the response I got:

    Dude I've been bodyboarding for like 3 years now, I think I can judge a wave.

    They are no where near 5 foot, do you have any idea how big a 5 foot wave is?

    Like, nearly 4 metres.

    yea...and im the retarded one

    Also it matters on WHERE you measure them. Some folks strictly go off the size of the wave on the frontside, while some measure off the top of the wave off the back of the swell... I kid you not!!!

    The proper way I heard was the top to the middle of the wave? It's still not a 1 footer...more like 2 1/2 ft
