Here's an article from the UK with photos of the tallest and one of the smallest man in the world. The tallest guy is 7 feet 9 inchs and the small guy in the photo is 2 feet 4 inchs tall. Apparently there is another guy that is slightly shorted. The small guy is 19 years old and the tallest guy is 59 years old I. The tallest guy was also recently married.
Here's a video taken from what seems like a cell phone came of the world's tallest living horse. Apparently he eats 18 pounds of grain, 40 pounds of hay, and drinks 20 gallons of water a day. He's 6 feet and 7.5 inchs tall which I assume is at the shoulder and weighs around 2400 pounds.
Over on Yahoo one of the most emailed photos is of the tallest living guy in the world and one of the shortest guys (or at least the shortest stuntman). The tallest living guy is a 53 year old Mongolian and he is 7 feet 8.95 inchs tall. The short guy is 49 years old and was born in Kenya. He is 4 feet 1.7 inchs tall and while he may not be the shortest guy he is the shortest pro stuntman. The photo was taken for Guinness World Records in London according to the caption of the photo. It doesn't say what their shoe sizes are.
Today we have a video of the French spiderman Alain Robert. This guy just walks up to the building and starts climbing up it without any safety equipment (helmet, rope, anything). His most recent feat that I know of was when he climbed Taipai 101 (the worlds tallest building) on December 25th 2004. In the video he just hangs on with his fingers and probably some special climbing shoes. In the video we link to here there is actually some film from someone inside the building the guy is climbing looking out at the guy as he climbs past the window.
