Did you know that Ben Affleck is 6'4 (193cm)? And that Margaux Hemingway was as tall as her grandfather Ernest at 6'0 (183cm)? It would've probably taken the majority of us to stand 2 minutes behind them at a concert to start to envy them, thinking they must have the world at their feet. But that might not be the case.

Tall people have problems. In fact, they even created a subreddit to prove that they don't have it as easy as short people think. From having to almost kneel to use the ATM to folding themselves in order to fit in an airplane seat, you gotta admit, some of the photo evidence they provide make the case pretty compelling. Continue scrolling and check out the images.

If we were to get serious for a bit (this will only take a moment, I promise), we would see that poor nutrition and illness in childhood limit human growth. Which means, the average height of a population strongly correlates to its living standards. Thus, the study of human height becomes relevant even for historians who want to understand the history of living conditions.

Even though human height is used as an indirect measure for living standards, experts emphasize that it is not used as a direct measure of well-being.

Human height has been steadily increasing over the past 2 centuries across the world. It is in line with improvements in our health and nutrition during this period. Generally, the data for these studies comes from soldiers (conscripts), convicted criminals, slaves and servants. It is, in fact, the reason why so many talks on human height focus on men.

During a 100-year period between 1896 and 1996, the largest gains in height were recorded for European and Central Asian men; their mean height increased by 11 cm (4.3 inches), overtaking North American men in the process. The smallest absolute gains were seen for South Asian men; mean height increased by only 5 cm (2 inches).

There are only 2.5K members in the r/TallPeopleProblems subreddit, but I guess the bigger it gets — the more people experience these issues — the better?
