Everything is relative. For example, Shaq might not look tall when he's on camera next to other basketball players and Simone Biles might not seem short when you see her competing against other gymnasts but put them near each other and you'll instantly get an idea of their size.

So to broaden your understanding of the world, we at Bored Panda put together a new list of interesting comparison pictures from all sorts of different areas, including nature, technology, and social issues. It's a series we've been working on for a while too; if you like scrolling through these images, fire up our earlier publications here, here, and here. Maybe you missed some!

That is really bad care from the shelter. Not only because the dog likely has a lot of tangles in the hair that can be a problem. But also because more people would adopt their dogs if they look cleaner

Looks cool. Good thing is that you don't have to worry about the white parts fading coz white tattoo ink doesn't last long.

For anyone considering this, do a little research before you decide where to donate. Some of the "charities" actually charge really high prices for the people who need them. My family discovered this when my sister developed alopecia universalis that 9 years old.

It's absolutely disgusting that the female handball team were fined for wearing similar to the men's instead of their usual bikini style clothes. The committee in charge of those rules should be ashamed of themselves.

The plant on the right gets substantially more sunlight than the plant on the left with the shadow of the shed but sure. (That being said, research does show that the gentle vibrations of normal, calm voices can stimulate plant growth. Google it.)

Genuine question: seeing as they are a protected species and the feathers have cultural significance, would that person be allowed to keep that feather?

The color changes you see underwater are really startling. Like my good fins are red, and you can see them turn blue and then black as you get further from the surface. Other colors look the same, but red colors are filtered out very quickly.

It is ridiculous and it’s really harmful for your self stem. The other day I saw a L T-shirt that was 1Cm wider than a xxs. Two trousers of the same size, one fit perfectly and the other didn’t pass my tights. I bought in the same store a xxL and a L that were the same size (of a normal L). I felt horrible when I needed a xxL until I measured it with the other shirt I got. It’s horrible for the self steam.

Sure it's a dandelion? I think it might actually be a salsify seed ball. They look like dandelion seed balls but bigger.

So much modern housing is built on ancient flood planes with zero planning during construction for bad weather. England is terrible for it, plus they stopped dredging the rivers on the say so of environmental nut-jobs which really helped flood everywhere
