8.5 Feet Of Ukrainian Meat

While a photo of an 8-foot tall dude riding a bike with a normal size dude pushing him is pretty funny, we should really be concerned with why the Ukraine branded him with a scarlet "H", presumably standing for humongous.

Ukrainian veterinarian, Leonid Stadnik, 2.59 meter (8.5 feet) tall, the world's tallest living man according to the Guinness Book of Records, rides a bicycle specially made for him, in the village of Podoliantsy, Ukraine's northwestern Zhytomyr region, 212 kilometers (131.74 miles) west of the capital Kiev, Sunday, March 23, 2008. Stadnik's growth spurt started at age 14 after a brain operation apparently stimulated his pituitary gland. Stadnik, 37, is still growing up. (AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsky)
