Today I am going to add a new category, YouTube to oceanofweb.com, in which I be putting some popular videos from youtube. As a first post for YouTube category, I am sharing the video ‘Tallest Man Meets Smallest Man’.
Bao Xishun, 60 year-old, from Inner Mongolia, 7 feet and 9 inches (236 cms) is the world’s tallest living man. He is a Herdsman and his spouse name is Xia Shujian. His birth year is 1951 and he loves his job. At 45 years of age, his mother died which led a great shock to him. Soon he grabbed local media attention. At measuring his height, he was found as 2 mm older than previous record holder Radhouane Charbib.
Guinness World Records says Bao was of normal height until 16 and he reached his full height in next 7 years.
On 19th July 2007, in Baotou City, China, he went to meet 19 years old ‘He Pingping’, who is officially the world’s smallest man, with 2feet and 5inches (73 cms) in height. The surprising point is that the both men are from Inner Mongolia.
Bao Xishun was officially confirmed as the world’s tallest man in 2006, beating Tunisia’s Radhouane Charbib by 2mm. He Pingping’s record was confirmed in 2007.
You can see in the pic and the video how small he is. Please check the video. Infact he is like a little boy but is acting as a big celebrity and is refusing to meet the others.
He Pingping was born on July 13, 1988 in Ulanqab of China. The bad news is that the smallest man died at the age of 21 in Rome, Italy on March 13, 2010. He was having pain in his chest and due to which he got admitted on 3rd March in Rome, where after around 10 days of treatment, the doctors were unable to save him. Craig Glenday, the editor in chief of Guinness World Records editor-in-chief said in a statement that the small guy was an inspiration to anyone considered unusual or different. We all will miss him.
Bao Xishun was officially confirmed as the world’s tallest man in 2006, beating Tunisia’s Radhouane Charbib by 2mm. He Pinping’s record was confirmed in 2007.
Well Bao Xishun is surely considered in the tallest men of the world.
