Last Friday night, I was flipping channels and found 20/20. My only previous experiences with 20/20 was when it used to come on after the last sitcom on ABC's TGIF.
"Good Evening, I'm Hugh Laurie."
"And I'm Barbara Walters."
"And this is 20/20."
A special on the outliers of human height. Tall and small. It was fascinating. The lives of a 3'10" woman and her family (husband is a dwarf, adopted Romanian daughter is a dwarf, 10-year-old biological son is not a dwarf) were juxtaposed with a 7'8" giant who was five feet tall by the time he was 3. (For the record, he is only 1 inch shorter than the world's tallest man.)
To see how they work and live and adapt in American culture was incredible. When 20/20 brought the dwarf mom and the world's tallest woman (7'7"!) together, I may have shed a tear.
I was fascinated by this program. Want to see more photos? Read more about it? This stuff will blow your mind.
