The Smallest BodyBuilder
At 33 inches tall and weighing 9.25kg, Aditya 'Romeo' Dev of Phagwara, India, is considered the world's smallest bodybuilder.
Dev, 19, who is excellent, stands just 33 inches tall - but weighs an impressive 9.25kg (just under 1.5 stone), and has a chest measurement of 20 inches.

'Romeo' trains at the Leo Health Club in Phagwara, India, where his trainer is club owner Ranjit Pal (also known as 'Mr Punjab'). Pal is reputed to be the fastest skipper in India, which is a fairly brilliant claim in itself.

World´s Largest Hands
Only a couple of months ago we looked at the case of Liu Hua, the man with the largest hand in the world and the surgery he was getting to help him return to a normal life. This left a vacancy open and now Duangjai Samaksamarn, from Thailand, has been given the crown (and dubious distinction) of having the world's largest hands, by Ripley's Believe it or Not.
It appears that attempts at medical intervention have so far been botched:
No one realized that her oversized hands and arms were caused by a hormone imbalance. Hoping to right the wrong, she had two operations, one when she was 25 and another 5 years later. The operations proved to be disastrous. Instead of stopping the growth, they activated the cells causing the arms and hands to grow even larger.
She seems to be getting on with her life but her hands now weigh 10 kilograms and I think she'd swap the "fame" for getting the problem fixed. We can only hope someone is able to give her the help she needs and the extra attention Ripley's have drawn to her case will assist in this.
And yes I was restrained, as I could easily have run with the title "Give Her a Big Hand" or "You've Got to Hand it to Her" but I didn't and I wouldn't even mention it, any more.

The Wolf Boys
The Wolf People, as circus fans call them, Victor "Larry" and Gabriel "Danny" Ramos Gomez are two of a family of 19 that span five generations all suffering from the rare condition called Congenital Generalized Hypertrichosis characterized by excessive facial and bodily hair. Although the women are only covered with a light to medium coat of hair, the men of the family have thick hair on approximately 98% of their body except their hands and feet.

The US$4 million monster
Known by the press by the nickname of "The Bride of Wildenstein" --a reference to The Bride of Frankenstein--, Jocelyn Wildenstein has allegedly spent almost US$4,000,000 on cosmetic surgery over the years, ending up as one of the worst and most famous cases of plastic surgery addiction. But who did that happened?
Once upon a time, in the late 70s there was a beautiful women named Jocelyn Wildenstein. Jocelyn really had it made. She was a fresh-faced mother of two and married to an extremely rich art dealer. That is until she caught her husband in bed with a 21 year old Russian model. Now, any normal person would just leave her husband and take all of his money with her, right? Not Jocelyn Wildenstein! Instead she decided to win back her husbands love and make herself more beautiful by going under the knife. Well, her husband left her anyways, but Jocelyn will always have her plastic surgeon.

The No-Arm Licensed Pilot

She a psychology graduate and can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet. She is also a former dancer and double black belt in TaeKwonDo. But above all, Jessica Cox is a motivational speaker and a license pilot. Yes, you read it right, this extraordinary no-arm lady is a pilot. Here's a video of her while flying a plane.
