Tall. Really Tall.

I saw this man on the Today Show this morning and it just amazes me. When I was a kid, I wondered what it would be like to be tall, like 6'6" or something like that. My main interest was from a basketball perspective. Alas, I am stuck in my 5'11" frame. After seeing this guy, I am pretty pleased to be my size. This gentleman is from Turkey and he stands 8 feet, 1 inches tall. This man will never know what it is like to drive a Toyota Corolla (he would never fit), nor will he ever be able to pass under a regular sized door. He would barely even fit in my basement.

As I mentioned before, I am totally fine with my height.

That is totally crazy. I hated how the today show was ogling him like an animal at the zoo. "Look at the size of his hands. Everything looks so tiny compared to them. Here, hold this ipod. Can you believe how tiny it looks? And look at the feet?"
