    There was this 7 foot tall Indian woman who used to work at Harvard, I would see her all the time walking through Harvard Square when I worked at a newsstand in the area 20 years ago. One day there are these lowlifes hanging around the stand talking shit to people, they see this big lady come by and have some shit to say, she sneers at them. What they didn’t see about 5 steps behind her coming up the street was her 7’4” father, once he came into view these guys literally took off running.

    6’10. Was weird grappling him, although was he was really easy to armbar. Kicking him was really awkward since his body was basically head height and his legs were waist high.

    I have a mutual friend who's 6'11". Nice guy with a horrible drinking problem who hates being that big. My other friend (who's 6'6") and him fought one night and he made him look tiny.

    I recently saw this tall guy in TJ Maxx, then saw an even taller guy at Target. Had to be 7 ft. Looked like a skinny hillbilly.

    The guy I saw at Best Buy was just like that. Maybe he got fired from one job and got hired at another.

    One of my close friend is 6'7". Sparring with him is tough, his jab is pretty good so good luck getting close.

    I would see this guy in the gym at my university sometimes, had to be at least 6'10". Tallest I've seen though was at a rock/metal festival, dude had to be 7 feet tall.

    Oh and when I was 7 I sat ringside at a WWF show, Kane is a huge guy.

    I worked with a guy who was 6'9. He was huge. Using his height as a reference, however, I've seen three people who I think were over 7'. One was some young dude at a community college. I passed him in an empty hall. Kind of surreal. Saw another at a greek place. White dude who looked kind of bummy. 3rd was a black dude at a mall near LA. A ton of people were pointing and staring. Might've been a ball player but if so I didn't recognize him.

    It's funny I had three tall friends growing up and they were all named Scott. We called them Big Scott, Little Scott and the third by his last name. Big Scott is 6'8" and spikes his hair up on top of it. Little Scott is maybe 6'3" and the other one probably 6'1". The rest of us are a standard 5'9".
