    For these trivia bits, I wanted to point out that a person is more likely to be a quarter of an inch taller in the morning when they first wake up (rather than just at night). This is due to the fact that we lay down while we sleep, which takes pressure off of the spinal column throughout the night, allowing the cartilage between vertebrae to expand slightly, and then get compressed again throughout the day. If you were to measure your height at the beginning of the day and then again before you go to sleep, you’ll find you’re taller in the morning, not at night.
