    Possibly. But if there was, it's been extremely well hidden, otherwise every shop would stock it and it would be renowned globally. Are your parents short? I was very short for ages so I know how you feel. Up until I was about 16/17 I always looked younger than everyone else my own age in every way possible, despite being almost a year older. Always used to be the short one and was subject to the miracle gro joke quite alot haha. But now look at me, I'm over 6 foot, **** yea. Still just as skinny though, so it's not all great. If you aren't a skinny ****, at least be thankful for that. As for growing taller, try constantly jumping for a year. Your legs at least should grow thanks to gravity.

    Ermm......gravity pulls you down, and besides when you land from your jump, surely your body would the pushed down and hence any gain from the stretching motion of jumping up would be balanced out.

    I hadn't thought about that. Now my idea seems stupid and infeasible.

    Your leg muscles would stretch but your bones wouldn't so it wouldn't work, not because of what was previously said about gravity.

    Woah, some of the short people have been great sports stars

    Manny Paquiao - 5,6
    Prince Naseem Hamed - 5,4
    Sachin Tendulkar - 5.5
    Diego Maradona - 5,5

    Just to name a few, so being short isn't bad at all.
