Tallest Living Man
Tunisia's Radhouane Charbib measured 2 m 35.9 cm (7 ft 8.9 in) as a result of seven measurements taken on April 2223, 1999 in Tunis. Radhouane is one of 11 tall brothers and sisters. He enjoys playing basketball and not surprisingly his local team are top of the league. His striking frame can often be seen walking around the whitewashed streets of his hometown, Tunis, Tunisia, where he is now regarded as a superstar. Of his world record Radhouane said, "It is a big pleasure and I can't believe the position from which I see the world."

Tallest Tribe
The tallest major tribe in the world is the Tutsi (also known as the Watussi) tribe of Rwanda and Burundi, Central Africa, whose young adult males average 1.83 m (6 ft). The Tutsi are found mainly in Rwanda and Burundi.

Shortest Tribe
The smallest pygmies are the Mbutsi from Zaire, with an average height of 137 cm (4 ft 6 in) for men and 135 cm (4 ft 5 in) for women.

Largest Chest Measurement
Big boy Robert Earl Hughes, who was born in 1926 in Illinois, started bursting his shirts as a toddler. His parents worked hard to keep him clothed and fed. They watched their son double his weight more than four times from the age of six to the age of 25 from 92 kg to 406 kg (203896 lb). At his death in 1958 he topped the scales at an amazing 484 kg (1,067 lb) and was buried in a coffin the size of a piano case.

It's a mistake to think it's greed that is the ticket to the outsized life. While big bingeing can pile on the pounds, more often than not excessive weight gain is down to how efficiently the body digests its food. Robert had too little of a hormone called thyroxin running through his blood. Thyroxin helps the body burn off digested food as energy. Without enough of this natural combustor a person can put on more weight.

During an average lifetime a human will eat 27,215 kg (60,000 lb) of food that's the same weight as six elephants!

1. The nosey man Thomas Wedder, toured in England during the 1770s with a nose measuring 19 cm (7.5 in) long.
2. The two-headed boy conjoined twins Giacomo and Giovanni Battista Tocci, born in 1877, shared an abdomen, pelvis, and legs.
3. Hungarian-born dwarf Susanna Bokonyi of New Jersey, USA, was born April 6, 1879, and was just 101.5 cm (3 ft 4 in) tall.
4. The woman with the head of a mule Grace McDaniels, toured in the 1950s with facial skin folds hanging 10.2 cm (4 in) below her chin.
5. Bearded lady Vivian Wheeler of Illinois, USA, currently still touring, grew a 27-cm (10.6-in) long beard after the death of her mother in 1990.

Most Tattooed Women
The world's most tattooed women are Canadian Krystyne Kolorful and American Julia Gnuse (pictured). Krystyne's iridescent bodysuit cost her $15,000 and took her 10 years to complete. Julia covered her body with tattoos to hide the effects of the skin disease porphyria, which causes blistering and scarring.
