    Some will remember

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...st-man-us-dies

    Looks like Igor only made it to 38. Not surprising with his health problems I suppose. I know he left the forum on bad terms, but this Ohta bring back a memory or two.

    "In 2012, Vovkovinskiy issued a plea for help to cover the estimated $16,000 cost for specially made shoes that wouldn’t cause him crippling pain.

    At the time, he said he hadn’t owned a pair for years that fit his feet, which were size 26 10E. Thousands donated more than double what he needed. Reebok provided the custom shoes for free."

    chaching!

    The worlds tallest man, and tallest of all time was Robert Wadlow of Alton Illinois.
    He was 8' 11.1".
    He lived from 1918 to 1940.

    In my home town was a big shoe factory and they made his custom order size 37 AA shoes. For years a local shoe store had a pair of his shoes on display.

    I remember the discussion regarding Igor many years ago. Some of us are still around from those days.

    Watching the local noon news, was very surprised to see that they did an article on Igor.

    Vovkovinskiy appeared on the Dr Oz Show and was called out by Barack Obama during a campaign rally in 2009, when the president noticed him near the stage wearing a T-shirt that read “World’s Biggest Obama Supporter”.

    Igor rooked some guys here who donated money for his special shoes out of the goodness of their hearts and he shat upon them with something like all you guys care about is your guns and jacking off and America is fallen and so on and so forth, then he went on to even greater heists.

    Hmmm...not sure about Hondo, but I know Gibby (Gibsonite) passed away, maybe about 10 years ago...

    I sincerely miss TOP.

    I remember when he disappeared...suddenly...no word of or about him ever again. I kept hoping he would reappear out of the blue, as suddenly as he vanished...
