World's Tallest Man Gets Hitched
Bao Xishun, a 7 ft. 9 in. tall herdsman from Mongolia, was officially listed as the tallest man in the world last year by The Guiness Book. Last week Bao married a 28 year old woman (about half his age) that stands 5 ft. 6 in. The woman in the picture is approximately the same height as Bao's new wife. It's hard to believe that at 7 ft. 9 in. tall, Bao Xishun is more than a foot shorter than the tallest person that ever lived, Robert Padlow, who stood 8 ft. 11 3/4 in.
