What’s the weather like up there? Do you play basketball? Were you always this tall? That’s just a bite-sized collection of the types of questions that tall people have to deal with on a daily basis. However, most of them smile, chuckle, and get on with their day without worrying too much.

It becomes very obvious that a person is the tallest person around when there’s a short person right next to them for comparison. And this often creates comical tall vs short situations where tall people look like giants from fairy tales (or Hagrid from Harry Potter) and short people start to resemble the tenacious hobbits from The Lord of the Rings. To brighten up your week with some humor, Bored Panda spent lots of time cultivating, growing and perfecting this list of the most eyebrow-raising times tall and short people stood next to one another for a perfect height comparison. Scroll down, enjoy, and leave us a comment with your thoughts.

When you’re done with this list, check out Bored Panda’s previous posts about tall people people problems and the times that people traveled to Japan and realized they’re too tall for it.

There are advantages to being short and advantages to being tall. BBC Future writes that taller human beings, when running for political office, tend to get more votes; they also tend to earn more money.

Being tall can be a real boon in sports because long legs help you run faster and farther than your opponents. However, being small has its bonuses as well: nerve impulses travel from limbs to brains faster, which means reaction times are faster and the individual in question is more nimble. That can be a huge plus for martial artists just like Jackie Chan. Furthermore, shorter and smaller people are better at snowboarding, gymnastics, skating, diving, and skiing than their taller counterparts.

Being a 6-foot tall guy myself, I often find that I’m rarely (if ever) the tallest or shortest around. I’m pretty much average. And, unfortunately, nobody asks me if I’m a professional basketball player or Samwise Gamgee, so sometimes I’m a bit jealous of the attention others get. But then I realize being middle-of-the-road in terms of height isn’t all that bad. What about you, dear Pandas, how tall are you? What’s it like? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
