Weird News Central: World’s Tallest Man Can Use Airplane Toilet

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When you’re 8-foot-1 and the spray from a typical shower hits you in the navel, using the bathroom is like squeezing into a shoebox.

Such is the life of Sultan Kosen, the world’s tallest man and the first Guinness-certified 8-footer in more than 20 years.

On his first trip ever outside of Turkey, Kosen had breakfast with America Online’s 5-foot-6 weird news correspondent Buck Wolf.

Says Wolf: “I sat at the table, he sat four feet away from the table because he couldn’t get his legs under. It made me realize that everything this guy does is nearly impossible.”

Guinness World Records flew Kosen to America in First Class – to give him ample room – but worried over how he’d use the airline potty.

Kosen tells Buck, “It was a challenge, but I didn’t really have any choice. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to see America.”
