My sense of scale has been destroyed in recent years and I hold my nerdiness culprit. Studying Physics and having a social life primarily online will do that to people. There is just no way you can be indoors most of the time, reading mainly about subatomic particles or vast stars and hold normal ideas of how big things are.
