The World's Tallest Man is 8'5" tall.

     Leonid Stadnik is from Ukraine. He's had to quit his job as a veterinarian because his feet were frostbitten from walking in socks to work in the ice and snow, as he couldn't afford shoes that fit his feet. He can't fit in a car or bus. He had a brain operation at 14 that apparently caused an overproduction of growth hormone, and this was the result. 
     Happily, his recent notoriety has resulted in many acts of kindness from strangers, including shoes and clothing. 
     Leonid is an optimist, and he is looking for love. He says his dream is to find his soul mate, saying, "I think the future holds that for me."
     8' 5" tall. Makes whatever might be bugging you today seem kinda...small, huh?
