  • Humans have gotten bigger in general. Ever look at dresses and clothes of people in museums from 200-300 yrs ago? Man they were short and small lol.

  • Well, if real life was like the movies we'd be getting shorter and shorter (because the kids are always shorter than the parents!). I'd say it's slowly creeping upwards on average, but not by 2-3 inches a generation but maybe .5-1" in 100 years.

  • yeah with all the growth hormone we shove down kids throats of course kids are growing differently
