Do you know who's the tallest man in the world? Robert Pershing Wadlow was the tallest person in history for whom there is irrefutable evidence. He is sometimes known as the Alton Giant or Giant of Illinois because he was born and grew up in Alton, Illinois. He's 8 ft 11.1 inch in height and weighed 439 lb. I can't imagine myself being that tall.
How tall are you?
