Default world's tallest woman dies

7'7" woman dies....

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080813/..._tallest_woman

now...
1. do you think she was a virgin when she died?
2. if not, then how big do you estimate the unfortunate man who slept with her was?
3. and how many beers would it take you to hit that (when she was alive of course)?

1. no
2. 6'8" 350 pounds (think robert traylor)
3. a billion

And that's a bummer about Sandy Allen. She was from Shelbyville if I'm not mistaken. Lived in the same assisted living home as the US's oldest living woman (person?). She was on the news off and on and she always seemed like a very nice woman.

of course it looks fake cuz he is so freakishly tall but i saw a video on him. It sucks cuz they didnt know what to do with the over active petuitary(sp?) gland or whatever back then so he just kept growing until he died.

Hey Phar, since I know that you live in the STL area, have you ever been to Alton, IL? That's where the tallest man ever, Robert Wadlow, was from. They have a life size statue and museum dedicated to him. If you have the chance you should go check it out. Actually, you could make a mini-day out of it. Alton is a really cool town.
