Well so much for the image of little Asian guy. (http://english.sina.com/life/1/2006/1109/94265.html)

We know well about 7'5" Yao Ming. But who does Yao look up to? I mean really look up to.

Bao Xishun is the reigning world's tallest man at 236 cm (7'8.95").

Bao is currently on a tour of Brazil to take part in the 2007 Guinness Day celebrations.The hotel where he is staying supplied him with a touble king-size bedAND a single bed for his feet.

His growth spurt happened between 15-23 years of age.

So, why hasn't he been recruited by the NBA? Well...he is 55 years old.

But, hey, Yao still has a couple of years of growing left. Maybe he will catch up.

What do you think?

The tallest guy according to the Guinness book was Robert Wadlow who reached 8'11" (271.8cm).

They have a scale statue of this guy at the Ripley's Museum in OC, MD. Unreal standing next to him how anyone could ever be that big.

Is it true that Wadlow (8'11" guy) died from a splinter in his foot?? I recall hearing that a long time ago... I'm assuming if it's true, it must have gotten infected but still... never heard of anybody dying like that.

Splinter to him = 2 ft long stick

(I dunno, never heard that)
