Not to make anyone depressed, but...

World痴 shortest man dies in Italy
March 13, 2010

By QMI Agency

He Pingping, the world's shortest walking man, died on the weekend at the age of 21.

Born in Huade County in Wulanchabu, China, with a form of primordial dwarfism, Pingping measured just two feet, five inches.

He was in Rome to appear on a local television show when he was taken to hospital with chest pains. He died a few days later on March 13, according to a Guinness World Records statement.

"I had the pleasure of meeting Pingping back in 2008 in Inner Mongolia," said Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday. Glenday was the first person to confirm Pingping's status as the world's shortest man.

"From the moment I laid on eyes on him I knew he was someone special he had such a cheeky smile and mischievous personality, you couldn't help but be charmed by him. He brightened up the lives of everyone he met, and was an inspiration to anyone considered different or unusual.

Pingping, who was reportedly smaller than his father's palm at birth, was a chain smoker since the age of seven, and considered a ladies' man, according to the Guardian newspaper.

He didn't shy away from fame, often appearing in the media and at Guinness launches around the world.

On his Facebook profile page he joked, "Please Invite Your Friends and share the love, there's plenty of me to go around."

撤ingping showed us that, despite the challenges we face, we can still make the most out of life, and for such a small man, he made a huge impact around the world, Glenday said.

摘veryone at Guinness World Records is very saddened by the loss of such a wonderful, engaging, fascinating character he will be greatly missed and we would like to offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends.



At least he got to be on the race. :(

Thanks Hooky, nice article.

WHat I find most interesting is that our "smallest" man and "tallest " man were from the same general area of Mongolia, and they actually met each other:

We still have quite a few locations to identify more preciisely...

I have been trying to find the spot we see in these promo pictures (thumbnails>>click-click) of what I am presuming is the noodle making, in an outside patio near the water.



We know that the noodle making is supposed to take place in Zhu Jia Jiao, a canal town known as the Tiny "Venice of the East" and one of the four ancient towns technically in the Qingpu District of Shanghai, but really right outside (1 hour drive).



In Zhu Jia Jiao, there is a  a "bell tower" in the Yuanjin Buddhist Temple on No.187 of Chaohe Street, Zhujiajiao. It does appear to be near the water.



Do y'all think this looks like the tower seen in the background of the promo shot??

If so, using that address, can anyone figure out exactly where our noodles are being made?? :lol:

The noodle restaurant looks nearby, if the promo is accurate. Here's a crude map of Zhujiajiao; once magnified, you can spot Yuanjin below the word River.

Thanks Slowhatch!! :hugs:

Okay...I have updated the 2nd post in this thread with what we believe to be the actual order of events for Leg 1 Shanghai. Please look it over and let me know if you spot any errors or omissions??

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,21834.msg517682.html#msg517682

The promos are a bit confusing, because they are mixing the tasks in both episodes, based on firm evidence of the order we believe things occur in.

So I am left with some location screen cap questions...can y'all help sort this all out please?

Is this the Science Museum? Can someone get a matching view?


Any ideas where this is? >> SINGAPORE per Neobie!! :ty3:


Where is this? Is the car incidental ...or significant?


Could this be in Lu Zia Zui Park? Can anyone find a similar image? >>PENANG per Neobie!! :ty3:



Where is this? At the Museum? What's with the license tag? ?? They are supposed to arrive by metro....


Is this the Bund area? In which case it is more Leg 2... or Pudong FROM the bund?? and therefore more leg 1. ???


This confessional seems to come after Leg 2, since it is after the Fashion task:


This one prob comes after this leg:


Teams (or crew?) may have stayed at the Shangri La Hotel...can we match this?

And is this overlooking the bund at Pitstop 2??  >>Leftover SINGAPORE per Neobie!! :ty3:


Thanks guys!! :jumpy:

Here's the main entrance to the science museum. I don't see it myself, but there could be other exits City8 doesn't cover.

Could that view be where Brent is when he is looking up??

Over-analyzing again, Peach? :lol: There's nothing wrong with the license plate. Looks like the airport to me, I've to go check.

You can take these out...

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

This location may include something to do with Cadillac Escalades?? cars?? product placement?? Not clear... possibly originally scheduled for Da Ning Park  instead.
I think we are looking for the Escalade Building - not building Cadillac Escalades.
But of course I can't find the Escalade Building near the park...

I am wondering if they used escalade as in the French for climbing?
escalade - climbing
Dictionary: escalation, climbing, scaling, climb
More climbing or jumping off tall buildings is always fun to watch!


Did find this, but can't find a Pudong escalade building either.

Hmmmm....could there be an Escalade Fashion of some sort?? Perhaps the route marker IS the Fashion task??

I :duno: but we DO see two racers with flour/dough on their hands....

Thumbnails>>click-click:



I had been thinking that since we had a "High Fashion" RB next time that all those scenes come be from Leg 2....but the Dumpling Detour apparently comes AFTER the High Fashion RB in Leg 2, So where would the flour come from? So now I am back to trying to make it all fit into this Leg. Which makes more sense from a preview point of view anyway...

Anybody want to see if all the racers clothes are the same throughout the day?? ???

And what's that lady doing behing Jordan? And is Jordan holding a belt or the amazing race pouch?? :lol:
Maybe they all have to get dressed in an outfit, and Louie is worried about his sense of style? :funny:

I'm not 100% sure due to the lack of photos out there, but I believe High Fashion is located at Source. The photo in the link seems to match the clothes hanging on the racks behind Mike and Jordan.

I think the flour comes from that noodles RB we saw during the original preview. This task was also seen in that preview so I doubt it's from Leg 2. Maybe that's the whole "trendy" thing from the promo.

What time does the wind blow?
By using my extensive knowledge of sun angels   :nuala: and extrapolating the hypotenuse of left handed quasars - I'd say its 12:55.

Weather Underground says there were wind gusts of 26 - 29 mph from around 12:00 to 14:00 on Dec 18th.

So it is clear from the video that the Cowboys were in first, Brent/Caite behind, then Michael and Louie...no sign of Dan and Jordan.

Then the wind began....and this RB turned into the RB from hell!!

Loved Cord stripping down to put his hat.shirt, and more :flirt: down to hold the placards!!

Whew...should be fun to watch but I am sure it was awful to do!!

Thanks to wp for finding the video!! The afternoon Twitter vid is the promo "Traditional" that we already have, so I think that's all folks!!

I am continuing to update post 2 in this thread with info as we get it!

By the insider report Dan and Jordan arrived third at the Pitstop though, and Michael apparently had trouble due to some level of color blindness as well.
