That's amazing, it seems almost like they're different species. That small guy looks like a baby.

That's a very interesting story and pic. But, forgive me for being the skeptic I am, it's Fox News, and the pic almost looks photoshopped.


I mean, wouldn't the little guy be looking up at the big guy when they shake hands? And who is holding him up, and why? As an adult you'd think he'd have sense enough not to step off whatever he's standing on and wouldn't need support.

I am suspicious. Story of my life.

That tall guy is nothing.

This is the real world's tallest man. His name is Robert Pershing Wadlow.


Robert Pershing Wadlow (February 22, 1918 – July 15, 1940), according to the Guinness World Records, is the tallest person in medical history for whom there is irrefutable evidence. He is often known as the Alton Giant. Wadlow reached an unprecedented 8 feet 11.1 inches (2.72 m) in height and weighed 440 pounds (199 kg) at his death. His great size and his continued growth in adulthood were due to a tumor within his pituitary gland. He showed no indication of an end to his growth even at the time of his death.
