The Big Apple would just be just another piece of fruit in Brobdingnag but lethal if it fell on the head of a Lilliputians. Julia Child was an exceptionally tall celebrity chef who towered over her husband. Kenneth Galbraith, the economist, towered over his colleagues and Wilt Chamberlain, was 7'1."The Burj Khalifa in Dubai at 2717 feet is the tallest building in the world. The record for eating hotdogs is held by Joey Chestnut--66 hotdogs and buns in 12 minutes. Jeanne Calment of France who died in l997 lived to be 122 years old.
