15 Times Humans Became a Perfect Scale to Measure the World

Figuring out the real size of things can be hard without a reference. Well, it seems that people are the ideal comparison model. Whether it’s an everyday object you’ve never seen up close or an unusually large plant, there’s no doubt that having someone next to it puts things into perspective.

Bright Side rounded up a few fascinating pics of things that had others feeling like they were giants or dwarves in their respective worlds.
