yao ming:

average height of chinese men (urban): 5′ 7″
height of yao ming: 7′ 6″

“At 11 pounds (5.0 kg), Yao weighed more than twice as much as the average Chinese newborn, and grew to be 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 m) by age ten.” [wiki-p]

precocious little … er, big … guy!

  1. @flavia – it’s funny you say that ’cause i had the same reaction, too. or maybe it’s not so funny (unusual) — strong jaws are generally considered attractive by women, aren’t they? (^_^)
