(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.

He's so tall! How tall is he? He's so tall that when he stood in Trafalgar Square, people around him kept saying "Good Lord, I think it might be a trick of the light, but Nelson's Column is moving today!"

Any girl he hooks up with should certainly wear her high heels.
