Not many people can claim this but US President Barack Obama (58) has accomplished the almost impossible feat of having grown by half an inch in the last 20 months.

As per the results of the President’s periodical physical exam, his height was given as 6’1″ or 73 inches on June 12, 2014 but this has mysteriously become 73.5 inches on March 8, 2016.

Though medical science has made huge progress in the last few decades, it is still not possible for human height to grow after 25 years of age.

Predictably, several explanations, including differential height during the course of the day and that President might be slouching in the previous examination, are being offered for this increase in Obama’s height.

The truth might be more inane. Some people round up and others round down.
