Gigantic

I was thinking about the fossils of megafauna the other night. Giant sloths and massive wombats, sabre tooth tigers. Well, why couldn't a hominoid creature have been giant sized? One day, an archaeologist will dig up a giant and we'll all have to rethink what it is to be human.

For those who prefer fact to what if musings, check out the Smithsonian's Human Evolution site.
