The Tall And The Short Of It...

Thirty one year old Turkish farmer Sultan Kosen at eight foot three inches is the world's tallest man and Nepal's Chandra Bahadur Dangi, aged seventy four is one foot nine and a half inches tall and the world's shortest.
They met just the other day at the 10th Annual Guinness World Records in London.
Even though he is short and I am tall, our life's struggles have been similar said Mr Kosen.
And that's about the tall and the short of it... 


  1. I have a friend that is over seven feet tall and he said he was the shortest of his brothers. He sure stands out in a crowd. . .

  2. Extraordinary difficulties to overcome in their lives.

  3. Chandra Bahadur Dangi is the cutest human man ever.
    It is such a pity that he has no wife to enjoy his cuteness and cuddliness and admire his handcraft skills. and enjoy his fame.I'm sure that when he was young he would have been popular with the ladies. Maybe not in India-perhaps a caste system thing?
    Or maybe his family just love him so much and want to look after him really really well.
    Anyway we think he looks very cuddly....Bee

  4. This makes it really tough to know how high to hang your paintings.
