Worlds Tallest Man Saves Dolphins...

Mongolian herdsman Bao Xishun, who happens to be the worlds tallest man at 7ft 8.95inches (or 2.36 m) was called in by vets to help save two dolphins who had swollowed dangerous plastic shards. The shards couldn't be retrieved by artifical means so Bao was called in as his arms measure 1.06meters and were long enough to manually reach the dolphins stomachs.

You know that is just heart warming stuff in a world that's generally quite pissy. Thank you.

See... Who said that the mutants were all in the Brotherhood of Evil working for Magneto... Some become superhero's and use their powers for good.

I bet his hands stink of fish though! ;)

Judging by his cheek bones he suffers from a fairly bad case of acromegaly(?sp), a disease that causes uncontrolled bone growth. Unfortunately it's often combined with reduced life expectancy.

Yep that's true, I read about this sad fact - like I said 'in a world that's generally quite pissy'!

I think you're own the money with this one - it is a China PR stunt.
