When you're over 20 feet tall, there are certain things that should never, ever, ever happen to you. These things include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Require help getting merchandise off the top shelf at Wal-Mart.

2. Be made to stand in the front row of a group picture.

3. Get seated in the back seat of any car.

4. Fail in your attempt to eat a large Asian metropolitan area.

5. Have your dunk stuffed by a man shorter than six feet tall.
