NEWS MAKING THE ROUNDS:
HumanScope ...passage of the tallest in the world & of the oldest cleric in Nigeria ...
Leonid Stadnyk, believed to be the world’s tallest man at 8ft 4 inches died August 24, 2014 aged 44.
Leonid, a peasant farmer from the Ukrainian village died of complications arising from brain hemorrhage.
In his last interview, he talked about how his height was a curse and why he refused to be measured by the Guinness Book of World Records and also why he refused to get married.
“To me, my height is a curse, a punishment from God, not something to celebrate. What sin have I committed?
All my life I have dreamed of being just like everyone else. I don’t want or need the fame that this would bring so I have no desire to be in this Guinness book.
I never got married because I don’t want to inflict my problems on a wife. I think it would not be fair on her".
At one point, his condition, called 'giganticism' left him growing at the rate of roughly a foot every 3 years. His feet measured 18 inches in length while his palms were more than a foot in diameter.
