Meet the tallest man in the world, this is 37 year old Ukraninan Leonid Stadnyk! he was measured at 2.57m (8ft 5in). to think I am only 5ft 6in :oS
This man had to stop using the bus because it became too small and instead had to use a horse drawn cart.
Many year ago, Nashnoosh of Libya used to be the 10th tallest man in the world according to the Guinness book of records but he was dropped from the list as more and more taller people were discovered.
I used to see Nashnoosh a lot in Tripoli when I was young, he was a celebrity in a way, I even once saw his car which did not have a drivers seat, instead a small round seat was fitted just in front of the back seat and that's were he sat when driving, another thing, some of his head used to stick out of the sunroof, strange sight!
Nashnoosh was actually approached by western film makers many years ago, he was asked to take part in a James Bond film but for some reason he declined, of course I can not confirm this but it was something told to me years ago.
Meet Leonid's shoe, can you believe this!! his shoe size is 64, mine is 7, I think I wont be bothered anymore about being short, :o) Alhamdulellah.
