2 new giants:
this one is billed at 2.45 m or 8'0.5" tall but I think he's not!

this is a picture taken in Nanjing, China in 1933 and this giant is said to be 2.4 m or 7'10.5" tall!

I think they are both good finds, but neither of them is or was the height they claimed.
The young giant tries his best not to be shown closely to other people, apart from the short lady. If he is over 7 feet tall it won't be by much. Interesting though. I am sure more information about him will surface soon.

The first one doesn't even look a pathological case, just a normal tall young man of 19 years old. Comparing him with the woman on the third photo [say she is 5 ft 2 in (1.57 m) tall..] , he would be lucky if he is over 1,95 m. It even seems that he wears an oversized clothing and shoes in order to look bigger. His sneakers and jaquet are clearly baggy and loose-fitting.

The second one is much taller, but comparing him with the men [considering the average height of chinese male as 5 ft 6 in (1.66 m)], he had to be around 6 ft 9.9 in (2.08 m) or so...

That's a funny photo. Makes you wonder if the publisher actually believed nobody would notice that the photo has been rotated to make the giant look taller. :lol:
