The World's Shortest Man

Move over, Edward Nino Hernandez, there's a new smallest man in town. Junrey Balawing of Zamboanga del Norte, who turns 18 today, measures only 24 inches from head to foot lying down and just over 23 inches standing up.

Balawing, the eldest of four siblings, is not only the shortest living man, but the shortest living man in history, the Guinness World Records said.
No monetary prize will be given for Balawing and all other Guinness world record holders.

Balawing unseated Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal who is 26.4 inches tall.

Municipal administrator Allan Selda earlier said the local government is preparing to celebrate for the record with balloons and a cake for Balawing.

Which should mean absolutely nothing to us, but because we are fanatics that need to dwell on extremes, we think this is neat. And because we are discriminators we have to tell Hernandez to "move over". You don't see it eh?
