Bao Xishun is the world's tallest man, measuring up to a mighty 2.36 metres (or 7 feet 8.95 inches if that's the way you prefer your measurements). In his native Mongolia, he's a herdsman, but since January 2005, when Guiness World Records announced that he's a whopping 2mm taller than the previous world record holder, he's been a busy man: last December, he saved the lives of two dolphins by pulling plastic from their gut; and now, he's married!
Now I may not be 2.36 metres tall, I may not be a herdsman and I may never have stuck my hand down a dolphins' throat, but I'm pleased to announce that I will be getting married.
This Thursday in fact
So as you can imagine, I won't be around to post in this blog for the next few weeks. That said, I'm sure Sam can pull out the occasional humorous YouTube video to entertain you.
As for me, I'm off and away!
