Being tall can get you a lot of attention and envy as almost everyone wishes to be tall. While being tall is a blessing it can surely turn into a curse from time to time as they go to settings arranged for average standard height. With great height comes great discomfort as a side effect of being more attractive than short people. While there are situations that short people can relate to whine all the time, tall people do have to face such tricky situations where they are the odd one out, embarrassed or uncomfortable. Born Realist has arranged a set of images for you tall guys out there so that you could share your pain with the world.

20. They Always Seem Taller Than Before:

Every time you meet someone after a few days, you can’t get through the day without hearing the phrase ‘you are taller than before’. How is that even possible, no one can grow after a specific age and yet people annoy you with the same question everywhere you go.

19. Sitting In Small Cars:

Riding in small cars is always claustrophobic for you, suffocating and uncomfortable with no leg space and head touching the roof on every bump that the car goes through. Basically sitting in small cars is nothing but a nightmare for you.

18. Overhead Showers Are Supposed To Go Overhead:

You have no idea what an overhead shower is supposed to do when your head is over the shower height. No one really considers tall people while designing things.

17. Standing At The Back:

Being tall you have to stand at the back of every group photo and sometimes it’s so far back that even you are unable to recognize yourself in a group of people.

16. You Can Relate Yourself To Shaq:

Who can understand the pain of being tall more than Shaquille O’Neal himself? Surely you guys can give each other a shoulder to cry and share the negative side of being tall.

15. The Claustrophobic Rain:

Rain can block your views with all those umbrellas in front of you. That is a view no one really wants to see.

14. Parties Are A Tiring Place For Them:

Going to a party you constantly have to get to the level of the person you are having a conversation with just so you could hear them. This constant slight bend can make that party a real pain.

13. Ceiling Are Their Biggest Enemy:

Every time you go in a place with those fancy low ceiling, getting your head bumped is a must. Ceilings are truly the greatest enemy of tall people.

12. Where To Keep Their Legs?

Handling your legs and stopping them from getting in other people’s way is always a problem on public transport. The biggest nightmare would be a fully packed public transport.

11. They Can Become Free Ride For Others:

Image credit: reddit.com

People think it’s okay to jump on your back to have a view from the top just because you are tall. Being tall doesn’t mean being able to carry the weight of a fully grown person.

10. They Are Always On Call:

Image credit: funnyjunk.com

From time to time someone keeps on calling you just to grab something that is somewhere on the higher shelves. You become a free servant boy/girl just because of being tall.

9. Sport Are Not A Necessary For Tall People:

Each and every time you meet a new person they surely do ask you if you play basketball or any other sports. What they don’t understand is that being tall doesn’t mean that you have to play sports.

8. Being A Goalie Is Your Life:

Image credit: gettyimages

Every time you play sports, you are chosen to be a goalie because of your bigger legs and arms.

7. What Do They Look Like:

Image credit: Flickr: anidiotabroad

A mirror and a tall person never really come face to face. They are always hanged lower than a tall person’s height making it difficult for them to see their face.

6. You Constantly Hear ‘Move Aside’:

Being at a concert, you hear the words ‘move aside’ more than the voice of singer singing in the concert. This could be very annoying and even make you feel like being tall is a curse for you.

5. Hugging Someone:

Image credit: imgur.com

Hugging is really awkward, do you stay straight or do you bend down to hug someone.

4. Bed Is Not Really A Bed:

Image credit: charlesprogers.com

No bed is long enough to get your legs some rest. Your legs are always bigger than the bed.

3. You Can Work Part Time As A Landmark:

Image credit: Flickr: holimac

Being tall you can never really hide in the crowd, instead, people use you to point out some reference.

2. Who Relaxes in a Bathtub:

Image credit: travelblog.org

Bathtubs are supposed to relax you but being tall you cannot even stretch your legs in there. Every time you try to take a bath it ends in discomfort.

1. Airplane Rides Are A Trip To Hell:

Riding an airplane you have to forget the concept of leg space. They are nothing less than torture.

Here Are 13 False Pregnancy Myths to Help All Mothers-to-Be

There are many myths and misconceptions attached to pregnancy. Here are some of the most commonly believed in myths and reasons why they are not true:

1. Wide Hips Can Make Childbirth Easier:

When people talk about wide hips in the context of childbirth they are usually referring to a wider ilium. However, the distance between the iliac crests and the size of the birth canal are totally unrelated. During childbirth, it is the hole in the middle of the pelvic bone that counts and it can be big or small irrelevant of the size of the hips.

2. The Size And Shape Of The Belly Can Tell Whether It’s A Boy Or A Girl:

Most people try to guess the gender of the baby by looking at the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly. Although it will make things quite easier if it were true but it is not. The size and shape of the belly are affected by the size of the fetus and its position in the womb.

3. Frequent Ultrasounds Are Unsafe For The Baby:

There is no scientific backing to the myth that getting an ultrasound could harm a mother or her unborn child. People often confuse ultrasound with radiation. Ultrasound is just high-frequency sound waves which produce an image on the screen after bouncing off of the fetus and are safe.

4. It’s Bad For The Baby To Lie On Your Stomach:

The baby is well protected inside the muscular uterus and lying on the stomach would not harm it, as long as it feels comfortable.

5. Running While Pregnant Is Bad:Image result for pregnant woman running shutterstock

Becoming pregnant does not mean you should give up running. As long as you have a safe pregnancy and your doctor gives you a go ahead, it is completely fine for you to continue running.

6. Morning Sickness Only Happens In The Morning And During The First Trimester:Image result for morning sickness shutterstock

Majority of the pregnant women suffering from nausea but only a small percentage of it suffer it in the morning. It can be an all day thing and while for most women it does end after the first trimester for some it can go on until the time of delivery.

7. Lifting Your Arms Above Your Head Could Strangle The Baby:Image result

Lifting your arms around your head cannot cause the umbilical cord to wrap around your baby’s neck. In fact, none of your movements can have an effect on the position of the umbilical cord and a lot of babies are born with the umbilical cord wound around their neck and is easily removed by the doctor.

8. You Would Have To Get Rid Of Your Cat:

Cats can be the carrier of a rare birth defect causing disease called toxoplasmosis. However, this does not mean you have to say goodbye to your pet as soon as you get pregnant. It is recommended to avoid cleaning the litter box and if you do not have anyone to do it for you wear gloves while doing it and immediately wash your hands afterwards.

9. Pregnancy Is The Best Time Of The Life For All Women:

The general conception goes round that being pregnant is the happiest time in a woman’s life. In reality, many pregnant can feel stressed, afraid and general feelings of unhappiness. A small percentage of women even suffer from symptoms of depression. This can happen due to the changing hormones in a woman’s body which ultimately affect the brain and mood center. If a woman experiences depressive symptoms it should be treated as it can have adverse effects on the health of the mother and baby.

10. It Is Okay To Drink Once In A While:

When you drink alcohol while pregnant, so does your baby as it can pass freely through the placenta. This can increase the baby being born with some physical or mental birth defect. While it is hard to determine the safe amount of alcohol that can be consumed without harming the baby it is best to stay away from alcohol altogether during the course of pregnancy.

11. You Lose All Your Pregnancy Weight During The Delivery:

The extra pregnancy weight gain is due to the amalgamation of the weight of the baby, placenta, breasts, the increased volumes of blood and body fluid in the body and some extra fat. While the weight of the baby, placenta and amniotic fluid is immediately lost after the delivery, it takes a couple of weeks to lose the weight gained by fluid and also fat depending on how much you gained.

12. A C-section Is The Easy Way Out:Image result

When it comes to delivery there is no easy way out. Many pregnant women believe that a C-section is the less painful and safer way of delivery. However, in reality, a c section could be pretty painful as well the only difference is you feel the pain after the baby had been born, unlike the vaginal birth. It can also pose complications later and is only recommended by doctors when the benefits outweigh the dangers.

13. The Fetus Is Unaffected By The Outside Events:

For a long time, it was believed that babies are born oblivious to their outside environment. In truth, babies can hear sounds and recognize their mother’s voice while inside the womb. They are also able to detect light and taste the food by licking the placental wall.
