>>45681 I see no reason that historical giants might have been myths, especially when you consider Angus MacAskill. Who is the largest man in recorded history who suffered no ill effects from his size.
People that big are just rare as fuck, and historically they probably would have just died of starvation, or had their growth stunted by lack of food. With just the sheer amount of people that have been born or died, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest that some would be bigger than what we would consider to be average.
Not that big of a deal, to be honest. Shit happens.
>>45681 many things at the smithsonian and metropolitan are confirmed fake but they wont get rid of them. for the met its something like 1/3 of items can be confirmed as fake.
one off the top of my head is the folder arms idols from the cycladic islands. the met says they have thousands but only about 12 are real. sorry cant sauce anything or look up the actual numbers I'm riding a train and not on my laptop but it should be easy to find
There isn't really any evidence for them. I'm sure lots of tall people lived in the past and their bones have been found, but the kind of stuff you see on /x/ mostly seems to be the result of tall tale-telling. When bodies decompose, they disarticulate in a way that makes them look bigger, which probably accounts for a lot of stories. Some of the other ones just seem made up. And the pictures that aren't fake usually involve some obvious prospective manipulation.
>>45681 Well, if you're posting that picture you probably know this theory; but the reason the Native American mummies/skeletons were hidden and their graves destroyed was to suppress interest in their history and discredit any sort of "advanced" practice they may have had.
