I think it is important to clarify in Kosen page on this website, its real height and projected height of 8 '3 "because GWR did not. Since most people think when posed with the giant that he is stopped to 2.51M. and not true. the same would be important to clarify for Brahim, and Jun Cai. From Chinese giant know it was measured at 7 '11 "(measured 1 time in the day with socks) and has severe problems position, we know his real height but certainly not its projected height (I personally think it could reach 8 '1 "or a little more but to be conservative say an 8' 0.5"). The case opposite to Jun Cai is Brahim, which we know its projected height but not his real height, which possibly is 7 '11 "barefoot, as the Chinese giant, seeing the photo next to Sultan Brahim is lower than Kosen and also has spinal problems, but no legs. Both Brahim as Jun Cai when using shoes are in the 8 'or overcome by very little. Remember that if the giant used shoes 2 cm thick reach 8'.
What I propose is not a change of position in the list, Jun Cai may be on the list of 7 '11 "but it would be important to clarify in the text of your page that's his real height, standing barefoot, but if did not have back problems and the legs could be between 8 '0.5 "and a little over 8' 1".
Brahim has to be where on the list of the 8 '1 ", but it is also important to clarify in the text he is not achieved for 8' 1" but is at least 1" lowest in its real height, standing and barefooted.
course is a proposal TTM has the power to run or not changes to your page. As in the page Morteza was clarified in the text he was measured at 8' accurate, but postural problems and a correction could be 8' 1 "or more.
At least clarify the giants who are alive, for those who are no longer alive is very difficult to know the difference between its real and projected height, at least the giant alive more than 7 '7 ".

A suggestion I've made before to clarify the issue is to list those giants with spinal problems at their tallest projected height but put an asterisk by their names.

anyone know if there filming the entire process of measuring Sultan Kosen made ​​by doctors (in 2009 and 2011). Anyone know which doctor (name) or medical team will officially measured for GWR?
It would be interesting to interview the doctors or medical team measured Sultan, Brahim, Igor, Paul "Tyny" Neil, Soomro, George Bell, etc.. We would be very helpful!

according to mathematics, Brahim is standing at 2.44m with shoes if Kosen is 2.48m with her shoes (which to me does not exceed 2.48m). This is how you see a 7 '11 "with an 8' 0.5" in real life. And Mr O'Hearn is less than 6' 2" :?:
