btw, what's up with the thick healed right shoe Ajaz is wearing? And why do we see so many pics of him sitting in a mall or public on a high chair and posing with random people for pics? Don't tell me he is a beggar making money of his height :roll:

People can have their picture taken with him for a small amount of money. A way of making a living I suppose. In most pictures he looks very bored.

une soixantaine de chaînes de télévision des divers continents. De condition sociale très modeste, le lauréat n’a pas pu contenir sa joie à l’annonce de la nouvelle dans l’espoir de voir ce titre lui ouvrir “une nouvelle vie” avec des contrats publicitaires alléchants en perspective. Radhouane Charbib qui sera le premier Tunisien à figurer dans le “Guinness 2000”, est Scorpion de signe zodiaque. Il est le quatrième d’une famille de neuf enfants, trois filles et six garçons. Il aurait un mélange chromosomique probable. Vivant dans les champs et au grand air, Radhouane mesurait 1,71m à 15 ans; puis, 2m à 17 ans. A 18 ans, il voit ses champs de Ras Jebel de très haut: 2,30m. Mais voilà que la santé commence à poser certains problèmes. Il sent soudain une certaine fatigue qui ne le quitte plus. Pris en charge par de généreux médecins, le jeune géant révèle une hypersécrétion hypophysaire qui induit le diabète. Après plusieurs opérations contre cette acromégalie ou gigantisme, Radhouane, qui pèse 166 kg et chausse du 55, vit avec une glycémie réduite et stabilisée, raconte Rached Trimèche, pharmacien de son état.

Just scroll down the page for the article. It says that Radhouane Charbib was only 1.71 m at 15 but he started to grow abnormal ever since. He reached 2 meters by 17, and not suprisingly such abnormal growth was caused by acromegalic gigantism.

I've found a whole bunch of Chinese vids on Zhang Juncai (that aren't available at this site). The above vid shows Zhang Juncai along side with Bao Xishun and he clearly dwarfds Bao and he was measured in it at 242 cm (but he has bad spinal curvature going on so if if he standing straight he might beat Sultan Kosen!)

Here's another vid of a giant not featured on this site. Of Michael Ri (the giant North Korean basketball player).

Here's a good site where you can find vids on giants. Type in 'tallest man' or 'tall man'
There are several never-before-seen clips of Wadlow, too, if you search up 'Wadlow'!

Some nice videos on that site. Just saw one of Jim Tarver which I haven't seen before.
Now, if only I knew how to download those videos. I don't think that website supports downloads.

The Tallest Man

btw. I have split this topic from the original topic in the Site information and announcements and moved it to this forum to keep the forum clean and tidy and all the discussions together in one forum. I also wanted to test if I knew how to do that, and the answer to that is yes, I do!

I have now added all these videos of Zhang Jun Cai to his video page:

Unfortunately I can't read the website or understand the spoken word.

I understand what they are talking about. They were talking about the love life of Zhang and his wife, how they got to know each other, and Zhang had surgery done on his pituitary in 2000 btw. That was done to stop his uncontrollable growth (at the time he was already 30 and still growing). He's a pituitary giant I suppose and not eunchondial.
