World's Shortest Man Announced - as part of the news and politics series by GeoBeats.
Guiness Book of World Records recently announced the new World's Shortest Man.
Hi, I am Sheri, discussing this story about extreme heights.
From traditional to new media around the world, covered this report about 72-year-old Chandra Bahadur Dangi from Nepal who measured 21.5 inches - that's less than 2 feet!
World's Shortest Woman so far has been Pauline Musters from Netherlands who was 23 inches tall. She passed away in 1895 which means we have been intrigued about these records for a long time.
On the other end of the spectrum, as per Guinness book of World Records, Robert Wadlow is the tallest person so far in recorded history at 8 feet, 11 inches!
Even more shocking is the possibility, based on fossil evidence, that an individual over 11 feet tall, lived in France at one time. Perhaps there were others of that height during the neolithic era?
One has to wonder why we are so attracted to such stories about height - is it our innate curiosity about aspects of life that are so different from us or is it something else? Also, it's interesting to ask - are we getting shorter or taller as human race?
