A little boy died in Brazil after eating MENTOS and drinking Coca-Cola / PEPSI together. One year before the same accident happened with another boy in Brazil. Please check the experiment that has been done by mixing Coka-Cola (or Coka-Cola Light) with MENTOS. So be careful with your self eating MENTOS (POLO's) and drinking COCA-COLA or PEPSI together. PLZ PASS THIS INFORMATION TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE SPECIALLY TO THE CHILDREN'S. BECAUSE IN OUR COUNTRY MENTOS AND COCA-COLA BOTH ARE VERY POPULAR TO THE CHILDREN.

While Mr Xishun, 56, towers above everyone at an astonishing 7.9ft, 19-year-old Mr Pingping is a mere 2.4ft high Bao Xishun, a herdsman from Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, was recently married in a traditional ceremony to a 28-year-old saleswoman from his hometown. At 5ft 6" Xia Shujian only comes up to his elbow and is half his age. He claims he was of normal height until he was 16 when he experienced a growth spurt and reached his present height seven years later. Mr Xishun was confirmed as the tallest person by the Guinness Book of Records last year. Mr Pingping was born nearby in Wulanchabu city, Inner Mongolia. His father claims he was only the size of an adult's palm at birth. He is now seeking to be registered as the world's shortest man by the Guinness Book of Recrods. He could be in for a disappointment though. While Mr Pingping is 73cms tall, the current holder of the title Lin Yih-Chih was measured as 67.5cm.

Scott Durga writes: "The picture on the left was taken by Ludovic Aubert, Imapress/Globe Photo. It was published in Life magazine. The location where the picture was taken is Simpson Bay, St. Martin a Dutch and French island. The island is so tiny that its Juliana International Airport abuts one of the famed Caribbean beaches." The hotel in the background at St. Martin is the Maho Beach Hotel. I have stayed there for some extended layovers. The first Air France approach that you show may well have been one of two separate approaches by the same pilot in which the rear main trucks took out a four foot high chainlink fence (there is no blast fence) at the approach end. This is a fence that locals and tourists like to hang on to when jumbos rev-up for takeoff (I imagine that it gets a little warm). Fortunately nobody was standing there or at least managed to getout of the way for the two Air France approaches. The runway is somewhat small for the jumbos. Rumor has it that the Air France captain was fired after the second fence killing. The last time that I was there the (1992?) you could easily see the new section of chainlink fence that was replaced
