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 22–23, 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."
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.
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. Some groups average only
132 cm (4 ft 4 in) for men and 124 cm (4 ft 1 in) for women. The Mbutsi are
nomadic hunters and gatherers, originating from equatorial Africa. They live in
the Ituri forest.

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 (203–896 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.
WANT TO KNOW MORE?
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 –

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.
