(Newser) – The world's new tallest man, Sultan Kosen, is in it for the chicks. "I want a car that I can fit in, but more than that I want to get married," says the 27-year-old Turk. The 8-foot-1-inch Kosen, who has pituitary gigantism, also nabbed the 2010 Guinness World Records for biggest hands and feet, the BBC reports. "Hopefully now that I'm famous I'll be able to meet lots of girls," he said.
