Not oral, though. The echoes would be annoying.

The average for men is 175 cm, which is very close to 5'9".

I feel sorry for Sandy Allen. She used to be on display as a freak at the Guinness museum at Niagara Falls. Her height and weight have taken such a toll on her back that she can barely walk now. Every time I have seen her interviewed, she seems like a genuinely nice person.
I'm surprised she is still alive, as people with her condition tend to die early. The tallest-ever man, Robert Wadlow, who was 8'11", died in his 20s.

Is it just me or are those last ones stretched horizontally on the tall woman to maker look even bigger. I compared the sets of photos and something has been manipulated.

The link says she's really only 6'5", but she looks like she'd be quite a bit more than a 5'7" guy.

I'm not surprised they noted she's from Holland, as we're now the country with the tallest people in the world.

When I was in high school, Sandy Allen used to shop at the Kroger where I worked. She was in a giant wheelchair and, because of her size, had quite a bit of difficulty with such an everyday activity as getting groceries. We'd always have someone help her through the store to push her wheelchair, help her get things off the shelves, etc. I helped her through the store at least a handful of times when she came through and always felt bad for her. In addition to making her huge, her condition made her features pretty 'abnormal' looking, for lack of a more sensitive word. Pretty much, everyone in the store would stop and stare as she did her shopping. Still, she was consistently pleasant and friendly and always left a nice tip for whoever helped her with her shopping.

You people really need to read the snopes link. Neither one of those "facts" are true.

But we believe! Snopes is part of a conspiracy to cover up the TRUTH!

Yes, I met her there when I was a kid. She is very nice, indeed.

I agree that some of those photos of Heather are manipulated. Notice how her arms and legs are blurred in the picture with the guy. Then notice her height compared to the door in the two pics with the woman. The heels magically make her about 1 1/2 feet taller.

This is a repost.

Anyway, the Tall chick is part of a whole world of "Tallgirl, Amazon, and Big girl Domination scene".
