he either has that bonestructure disease (can't think of the name right now), or he's wearing a pair of extra legs.

I dunno. I can say "thank you for dinner" in Norwegian, though. I forgot the rest of the phrases I'd learned.:(

yeah, except the photos are real. it's all on wikipedia too.

Wikipedia is far from Gospel truth, anyone can edit it. I've seen many many a joke on that site. As I'm sure you have too. I mean, yeah, maybe I'm wrong, but look at his arm leaning on the tree branch, looks fake to me.

Grabbal
01-27-2007, 01:32 PM
It is a pic of him and his mom so I doubt it's fake.. Dunno why I doubt it's fake for that reason..

I wasn't saying people can't be that tall. Or even that the guy in the thread isn't that tall.
Just that the one with the tree looks fake, the rest of them look legit.

JoY

ah, he had a pituitary gland tumor, causing acromegalic gigantism. that explains. acromegaly, that was the word I was looking for.

JoY
01-27-2007, 03:26 PM
seriously? how much longer would you expect a human being can get? there's no way any knees can handle the weight as it is at 2m72, or that a heart could last long, having to pump blood through such a massive body. no bodypart/organ we have is made for such a size for a human being.

JoY
01-27-2007, 03:39 PM
ah, okay. I was like; "would you expect to find even taller individuals running around?" for a moment there.

Isn't validated by science.

no.. that obviously wasn't the word I was looking for. I already said what was the word I was looking for; acromegaly.

JoY

if he wasn't, then I really don't see any point in his reply. if it was an attempt at humour, then he's got no funnies in his entire skeleton.

I have noticed, most people of northern europe tend to be really tall, you could even compare people from the north of france and the south of france, in the north people are taller (and blonder), I dont know why.

But like Maria, I thought 2m80 was about the tallest, but then, I'm sure people used to be really TALL in the old days, like centuries ago, but that people have started getting smaller for some reason, where do you think all those legends about giants come from?

01-28-2007, 08:48 AM
from the type's of people you've seen in the pictures. People in the past have always been scared of enything unknown, And they probebly threw people who exeptionaly tall out of there town. Because they think its some kind of punisment from god or something.

01-28-2007, 08:52 AM

Dude trust me this entire'' trying to insult people'' thing you got going on it isn't working for you.

Oh...OH!!!!!!! Touche'...you're such a worthy flaming opponent!!!! Dude, I post funny things. I make it seem like I'm drunk when I post. That doesn't mean I talk the way I post. The point is, just because I POST a certain way, doesn't mean I ACT that way.

Well, you POST like an idiot, and since none of us know you in real life, we're just going to have to assume you're an idiot.

And no, you're not funny.

That_Guy91
01-28-2007, 09:57 AM
Well, you assume wrong.

Everything we've seen of you has been you acting like an idiot. Your behavior outside of this forum is irrelevant to us, and on here, you're an idiot. And you can't just say "I'm not an idiot" and have people believe you.




Again, you assume wrong.

Show me a single person who finds you funny.

It's totally wrong, I'm from north of France, I'm really short and brown-haired. And there aren't a lot of blond here. I think the tallers are from south of FRance

Whiplash
01-28-2007, 10:02 AM
I think its true that people in northern europe are taller then people from the south. Look at us dutch people we are known for beeing some of the tallest people on the planet, and there are more blonde people in scandinavia the in the southern parts of europe.

Moderators should have the right to kick people from the forum!!

And btw Zagmeno, it's embarrassing to watch you trying to prove people wrong all the time..
Stop thinking you're the best thing ever and leave you worthless excuse for a human being!!

That_Guy91
01-28-2007, 10:21 AM
You don't have to believe me. But that doesn't make it untrue.

I just have 2 questions, then.

1. Why do you post differently than you act?
2. If you don't care if people believe you, why did you bring it up in the first place?



Hmmmm...where to start...

I would seriously like to know the answer to that question.

Grabbal
01-28-2007, 10:24 AM
1 Question Zagmeno

Do you understand why we dislike you??

That_Guy91
01-28-2007, 10:25 AM
I disagree. Much of the mods here tend to abuse the amount of power they have. They judge people based on how much they choose to hate them. Not by whether or not that person's trying to stir up trouble. Ironically, some of the mods actually provoke the flame wars when their job is to prevent them. So, if mods were able to ban people, this bbs would go downhill faster than it's going right now!

Their job isn't to prevent "flame wars", it's to delete spam. And even if they do judge people unfairly (which I don't believe), they have never used their powers in those situations.

You seem to forget that they're also bbs members, not paid moderators.

01-28-2007, 10:34 AM
Ok guys why dont we stop? we all know this shit never gets anywhere, the only thing it does is proving something we already know, that being zagmeno's retardness.

We should get back on topic now.

That_Guy91
01-28-2007, 10:34 AM
Their job is to make sure the bbs doesn't go to hell. Which I must say they're doing a terrible job!

You only think the bbs is going to hell because nobody likes you.



You dislike me because of my unique and colorful personality.

No, it's because you act like an idiot.

i was serious, that's honestley a name for when people grow to be over a certain hieght.

Original prankstA
01-28-2007, 11:27 AM
maybe not, I saw something on tv about the worlds tallest people and they refferd to a disease called gigantism, they didn't clarify anything about bone structure. I just assumed that was it.

JoY
01-28-2007, 12:40 PM
don't think gigantism is related to bone structure. to height, certainly. but not to the actual skeleton I assume.

well, it's mostly hormonal, seeing there's a tumor that makes a massive amount of growth hormone, if I'm not mistaking.. but the rapid growth does make your - goddammit, I have no idea how you say that in English, either way, it does make your bonestructure pretty funky. & not in a good way.

Original prankstA; I know you were serious, or else your post would've been completely ridiculous. it was an honest suggestion & I appreciate it. =) but "gigantism".. is not exactly a word I'd have difficulties with to think of. "acromegaly", on the other hand, took me some thinking.

JoY
01-28-2007, 02:43 PM
yes, indeed it is.
