bao xishun, the world's tallest man

TIME has a pretty awesome photo essay China's Bao Xishun, who at 7-feet-9-inches, holds the distinction of being the world's tallest man: The Tale of Bao Xishun, The World's Tallest Man.

It was interesting to learn that unlike previous holders of the title, Bao doesn't have gigantism, the growth disorder that contributes to extreme height. He's just naturally that tall. That's crazy!
