World's Tallest Man Ties Knot

I can't help it... besides the fact that she's half his age, the height difference is baffling to me. I've often written about my own pickiness in terms of not wanting someone too short or too tall. Frankly, anyone over 6 feet just seems so inconvenient.

People don't always agree with me. Love is love. However, it would be nice to have someone who I can kiss without straining my neck and hug without hurting his back or mine. I want to be able to slow dance together comfortably.

And the biggest thing, well honestly, isn't sex going to be rather awkward?

If you look at the picture of the two of them, she's staring at his belly button. Now, if you line up their private parts, she's looking at his chest and her feet would be touching his knees. She'd be smothered in missionary position. I guess it's all about the girl on top in this case.

To each their own. Personally, (if I can remember the day when I was having sex) it's nice to kiss and be able to look into each other's eye time to time.

The dolphin story sounds interesting.

World's tallest man ties knot
Story Highlights• Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9-inch herdsman from Inner Mongolia, marries, report says

BEIJING, China (AP) -- After searching high and low, the world's tallest man has married a woman two-thirds his height, a Chinese newspaper reported Wednesday.

Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9-inch (2.36-meter) herdsman from Inner Mongolia, married saleswoman Xia Shujian, who was 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 meters) tall, several days ago, the Beijing New reported.

Bao's 28-year-old bride is half his age and hailed from his hometown of Chifeng, even though marriage advertisements were sent around the world, it said.

"After a long and careful selection, the effort has been finally paid off," the newspaper said.

Bao was confirmed last year by the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest person.

Bao was in the news in December after he used his long arms to save two dolphins by pulling out plastic from their stomachs.

The dolphins got sick after nibbling on plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province.

Attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because the dolphins' stomachs contracted in response to the instruments, Chinese media reported.
