WORLD'S TALLEST MAN SAVES DOLPHINS

(F.Y.I. -This is not bullshit)
The world's tallest man has saved two dolphins by using his long arms to reach into their stomachs and pull out dangerous plastic shards.Mongolian herdsman Bao Xishun was called in after the dolphins swallowed plastic used around their pool at an aquarium in Fushun, north-east China. Attempts to use instruments failed as the dolphins contracted their stomachs. Guinness World Records list Mr Bao, 54, as the world's tallest living man at 2.36m (7ft 8.95in). Veterinarians turned to Mr Bao after attempts to extract the plastic shards at the aquarium in Fushun, Liaoning Province, had failed. The mammals had lost their appetite and were suffering depression, aquarium officials said. The heads of the dolphins were held back and towels wrapped around their teeth so Mr Bao could not be bitten. He then extended his 1.06m-long arm into the mammals' stomachs. Chen Lujun, manager of Royal Jidi Ocean World, said Mr Bao was successful and the dolphins were "in very good condition now". Local doctor Zhu Xiaoling told the state media agency Xinhua: "Some very small plastic pieces are still left in the dolphins' stomachs. "However the dolphins will be able to digest these and are expected to recover soon." Mr Bao was confirmed as the world's tallest living man by Guinness World Records last year. He overtook the previous holder, Radhouane Charbib of Tunisia, by just 2mm. Guinness World Records say Mr Bao was of normal height until 16 but then put on a spurt that doctors were unable to explain, reaching his full height in seven years.

This is old news. You should stay up to date on current affairs.

I think he's gotta have a big shlong...why else would a woman 1/2 his height and age marry him? He's got to be pleasing her in some way shape or form.

Did you ever stop and think that maybe he's got a charming personality? Jeez, I mean the motherfucker saves dolphins... Is having a proportionately super-sized shlong necessary for a woman half his size to love him? Talk about shallow....

C-Rocka said...

Shallow? Ok I guess I could give you that for my statement. However, charming personality? Most women half the age of an older man aren't thinking about that. They're thinking money, which I doubt he has bunch of $$$ as a hurder.

Then again I could be totally wrong. I've never been involved with someone significantly older than me.

He might be paid from his dolphin saving business.

..or from his pringles can-sized schlong perhaps. Mine has made me a very wealthy man.

Snickerdoodles McPoppycock said...

Talk about a diversified portfolio... saving dolphins, having a major shlong... This cat's got multiple revenue streams. Some guys have all the luck.

My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
