Young & Old, Short & Tall

World's tallest man sweeps bride off her feet at traditional Mongolian wedding
Standing at 7 foot 9 inches and towering over his new wife the world's tallest man married a woman two-thirds his size and almost half his age in a traditional Mongolian ceremony sponsored by at least 15 companies hoping to cash in on his fame.
Hundreds of people, some traveling for hours, turned up to see Bao, 59, wed saleswoman Xia Shujuan, a mere 5 foot 6 inches tall and just 29 years old.
"If we can have children, we'll have children", Bao said before the wedding. "If not, then not. If we have a child, I hope he or she can be about 2 meters tall.
Then he or she can play basketball."
