I dont know maybe its just me But does it seem to you that people are getting shorter? No I mean really I dont have anything better to do sometimes than observe people cause well people are hillarious not to say Im not a person but if you watch other people they are funny...Anywho I just noticed that all the freshmen at my high skool are unusually short. Shorter than Most people in my grade when we were their age and they keep on shrinking! I think were breeding elves! :grin:

Away with the faeries :-)
Remember reading a theory that went the opposite way - people are actually getting taller. This particular author calculated that the vikings would have been appr. 30 cm tall... :grin:

isnt that less that 15 inches? Historicly, people were shorter. I think I heard that it was mostly due to diferent diets. Take a look at your average asian and compare to the average american. Rice makes smaller people, hamburgers make bigger people(no offense to people who like rice, asians, or anybody else. Besides, that was the example given on TV). But 30cm is pushing the rediculous in the shortness scale.

In anthropology, the tendency of a population to become taller on average as their diets improve (Id say "change") with industrialization and incorporation into the so-called "first world" (another term I cringe at using) is called the Secular Trend. Americans went through this at the beginning of the 20th century. We are already as tall (and in many cases as fat) as our population deme is going to get. Japan is at the tail end of the phenomenon currently and it is just beginning in parts of rural China as they are becoming what the Frito-Lay corporation would call "economically active" (read: ready to be fleeced).

High school freshman arent getting shorter... you have gotten taller. I am, I was, I will be

the same size Ive always been,

must have been a painfull birth. Unless, that is, you are only 30cm tall. But that would make you a viking, and those pointy helmets and swords would also make for a painfull birth.
:eek:

Youre right mono...I stopped growing in seventh grade...right at an amazing and towering height of 52"!! and by the time I was a junior in highschool all I could think was "man, whyre they all so little?"
When more than half of them in reality were taller than me. I think its perspective, and even when I see a senior in highschool anymore Im like "man, whyre they all so little?"
Im a friggin midget, Im used to it. Pants in my size will be eternally WAY too long, shelves will never be low enough for me to reach without climbing on counters, and there will never be a seat adjustment close enough to the peddles in my car.
You will only ever see the top of a head over the steeringwheel when I drive up.
I just hope I dont get any smaller...gonna hafta stop falling asleep in the dryer.

I hit my full adult height at the ripe old age of twelve. Being 59" was impressive in the sixth grade... but eventually everyone else caught up and passed me by.

And, Xoas...
Yeah, I would call it a painful birth. I burst, fully formed, from the forehead of Zeus Pater. I figured that if I were going to go through any sort of birth trauma, I was going to make it as unpleasant as possible for everyone around me as well. :evil:

No one knows pain like my mother.... i was born 11lbs and 6oz. 24 long...natural birth, no drugs. So thats why when i got hurt and cryed when i was younger, my mom would throw peroxide all over slap a bandade a put me back outside....sympothy, i think not.

I knew one girl whose mother was having such a pain giving birth they gave her a spinal... unfortunately they didnt seal the gouge and all her spinal fluid drained on to the bed, and they didnt realize it was fluid instead of sweat... she had splitting headaches whenever she moved for about 6 weeks after finally giving birth.

As a side note, the girl whose mother I previously mentioned is something like 5 foot nothing.

ooooohh...you want reasons not to have kids. I used to walk around for about a year with a pen and a small not pad and write down reasons not to have kids as i saw it in real life. If anyone is interested it is about 300+ reasons long..heh..i have it backed up on disc some where.

Yeah, Mortes just strange, I guess...
But anyway, *high five for being heavy babies* I was ten or eleven pounds myself.

And now Im skinny... whats the deal with that?

But back to the topic, I do agree that were getting shorter... All these little freshman running around, I wonder if I havent been demoted back to elementary school. :roll:

Nah, people arent getting smaller...were bigger than ever before. Plus it also depends on the race, and what part of the world youre in. Genetic throwbacks from migrating and needing to adapt to new weather. Caucasians are usually pretty short to medium height, as the weather in europe at the time we arrived was cold, brutal, and nasty. Being tall and dark skinned was death, so those that survived became paler and stockier, the pale skin not needing the amount of sunlight as dark skin (that it didnt get in cold northern climes) and being long and lanky and tall released too much body heat..so we evolved shorter and stockier and more compact to keep our body heat within.
Those that remained and migrated throughout africa from the basin got taller or stayed the same height and color...dark skin being resistant to harsh sunlight and the tall lanky height released more body heat and kept them cool.
Im speaking as a whole, as Ive seen short africans and tall europeans, but collectively the rules apply.
Size is also relative to the "fishbowl" theory...you know, the bigger the aquarium the bigger the goldfish gets. You have island peoples that are relatively small, as if they were to grow big theyd need more resources to live and would outgrow their enviroment. Or you have peoples such as samoans, certain native amercan tribes, and inuits (eskimos to the politically incorrect) that are stocky, because their bodies are genetically engineered to reserve as much energy (fat) for the harder months when food is not as readily available.

Okay, thats enough historical garbage for now.
They arent getting smaller, your perspective is getting skewed as the years progress. It happens.

As for BABIES...my sisters were 8 and 9 lbs each, and I shot out last (literally) at a nice and tiny 6lbs.
Pnemonia through the last three months of pregnancy makes for nice miniature babies Im still the smallest of my sisters. As for my personality, I blame it on the antibiotics
