No Photoshop Necessary: World's tallest and shortest men meet


Some may find these photos, er, entertaining, but, of course, we here at the _floss see the trivia value in them.

They're shots of the world's tallest man, Bao Xishun, taking a mini-me-eting with He Pingping, who many believe to be the world's shortest human. So what's so interesting about that, I hear you asking? Well, dig this: both men come from the exact same region of Inner Mongolia!

The stats: Mr Xishun: 56 years old, 7.9 ft (was normal height until age 16 when experienced an unusual growth-spurt) Mr. Pingping: 19 years old, 2.4 ft (was the size of a grown-up's open palm at birth )

And that's the long and short of it...
