My knees are up here

On the left: Svetlana Pankratova, assistant basketball coach (girls varsity) at George Mason High School in Falls Church, Virginia, reported, and apparently certified by Guinness in 2009, to have the longest legs of any woman on earth: fifty-two inches. (She stands 6’5″.)

On the right: I have no idea. The Falls Church News-Press, whence this photo came, didn’t bother to tell us.

    Why both of these two ladies have mismatched knees? I mean, their left knee is not at same height as their right one?
    Is that why they are posing together, to qualify for another Guinness entry?

    Holy cats. I stand all of 66″ tall, maybe 68″ if I’m wearing heels. 52″ LEGS?!?!?!

    Tat, it may not be obvious from the camera angle, but I suspect the knees look mismatched because of the ladies’ stance; they don’t have their weight equally on both feet.
