Everything is relative. For example, Shaq might not look tall when he’s on camera next to other basketball players and Simone Biles might not seem short when you see her competing against other gymnasts but put them near each other and you’ll instantly get an idea of their size.

So to broaden your understanding of the world, we at Readingaro put together a new list of interesting comparison pictures from all sorts of different areas, including nature, technology, and social issues. It’s a series we’ve been working on for a while too; if you like scrolling through these images, fire up our earlier publications here, here, and here. Maybe you missed some!
