What are the theoretical limits of the height for humans?  What is the primary 
physiological factors limiting this growth?  Would bones be strong enough to 
support a 15 foot person?  Would the heart muscle be able to pump the blood?  
Would the lining of major veins and arteries be able to support the increased 
pressure?  Just curious...
