    Greetings. How tall is Matt Thornton?

    Greetings.

    Someone on another board said he is 6'9". Can anyone verify/refute this?

    Matt Thornton is seven feet tall, chokes men out by the hundreds. And, if he was here, he'd consume the Bullshidoka with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse.

    when he was on seal team 7, they measured him at 6'11 and he carried a mini gun.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    There was once a life-size statue of Matt Thornton straddling the harbour of Rhodes. It fell down. Sad story. Sad, sad story.

    Matt Thornton

    I had the pleasure of rolling a bit back in old days before SBG got going. He is most definately over 6'5" if not taller... and to my knowledge of him personally, he was not a Seal... But he was an Army Ranger if I am correct in my memory.

    He is one of the best individuals I have crossed paths with... not even including his skill and love of the arts.
