 From wardrobes to plastic surgery, the human being has always sought to be bigger and better. Since our humble beginnings as single cell life forms we have transformed drastically into the dominant creatures we are today. From chopines exaggerating height to bum rolls, we have truly perfected the art of exaggeration. Even with our incredible possession of language, we are at times stretching the limits of truth.

We exaggerate to better our social or emotional standing to others. While we are so intelligent sometimes we can’t help but to revert to behavior common to our animal kingdom brethren.
