Photo: World's Tallest Man Robert Wadlow Ripley's Odditorium (Gatlinburg)

While I have outlived Robert Wadlow by almost a decade now (he died when he was 22) this dude was no-joke, the tallest man ever alive. It's ridiculous how tall he was, a giant really. He makes me look short and I'm a hair under six foot tall.

Adam, Robert is taller but you are way cuter. LOL. Wouldn't you hate to buy clothes for that tall a person. Yikes. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I know about this man and it is such a sad case that he just kept growing which made him die so young. I wonder how big he was when he was born?

Christine said...

Wow. Sad to die so young.

He lived near some of my family in Alton, IL. They said he was so a gentle man. The heaviest man lived in Barry/Baylis, IL. He sat outside in the yard and people stopped to talk with him. Also a gentle man.

I doubt he bought his clothes off the rack.

Is that real or was he standing on stilts? I know that a lot of his acts were fake.

I always thought it would be painful to be that tall. Seems like his bones would hurt.

My imagination is not as vivid as yours.
What a thing to write - you could get the newly vacated/sacked position as the Clown of 1600 Penn Avenue 4th National Security Advisor.

I'm with Lisa there. I imagine he suffered through many growing pains through his short life :(
