World's Tallest Man - 8 Ft, 5 Inches

Ukrainian Leonid Stadnyk stands a neck-cranking 8ft 5inches tall.

At 13, he was one of the smallest students at his school. But during surgery on a brain tumour, his pituary gland was "activated", flooding his body with growth hormones. His hand is one foot in diameter. I'm over six-four, and my hand is about 4 inches in diameter.

The house in the picture above is the house Leonid lives in, with his mother.

Amazing story, and incredible photos of other 'giants'.
