Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

If you haven't heard of him before, Yao Ming is a famous basketball player, originally from China. This player, born in Shanghai, is so famous because of his absolutely ridiculous height. He is 7 ft 6 in tall. (That means he makes even other basketball players look short.) By the time he was a teenager, he was already playing basketball for the Shanghai Sharks. Then, he played on their senior league for 5 years. After that, he was drafted by the NBA and played on the Houston Rockets, making everyone else seem like a tiny, silly ant.

(H/T Piximus) In 2011, he retired from the NBA. Over the course of his career, he had too many foot and ankle injuries because of his size. He missed 250 games in his last 6 seasons. He will, though, forever be remembered for his rebounds... and making everyone else in the world look like itty bitty ants.
