Telegraph - A 24-year-old Colombian has taken the title of the world’s shortest man, measuring just 27 ins high (70cm) – slightly taller than the height restrictions for a piece of carry-on aeroplane luggage. Edward Nino Hernandez weighs just 22lbs and has just been officially certified as the world’s shortest living man by Guinness World Records. “He hasn’t grown since he was two years old,” his mother, Noemi Hernandez, said of the oldest of her five living children. The previous title-holder was He Pingping of China, who was 1.5 ins (4cm) taller and died March 13. The Guinness people discovered Nino afterward. They say Mr Hernandez’s reign is not likely to last long, however. Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal is expected to take over after he turns 18 on Oct. 14. He measures about 22 ins (56cm) and is currently recognised by Guinness as the shortest living teenager. Doctors never could explain why Mr Hernandez is so small, his parents say. Mrs. Hernandez said doctors at the National University studied him until he was three, then lost interest. Mr. Hernandez says he already has a girlfriend. She’s 18, is named Fanny and measures just under 5ft (1.5m), he says.

Former New York Giants punter Jeff Feagles(notes) told Sports Illustrated that Plaxico never paid for the No. 17 jersey the receiver purchased from him after joining the team in 2005. Feagles had negotiated the deal with Plaxico’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and the two reached an agreement: Plaxico got No. 17 in exchange for paying for some of Feagles’ housework. It worked out perfectly, except for one little detail:
“I never got paid for it. I asked [Burress] for it. Every time I went to Drew he said, ‘That’s between you and Plax.’ Bottom line, I never got paid. He basically stole my number.”
