It starts small. A wisecrack here, a tweet there. Suddenly, before you realize it, you've got a full-fledged joke addiction on your hands. That's what happened to Curt Oren and his bit about getting a new hat. Oren thought it would be funny to act over-excited about getting a new hat. And it was - at first, anyway. Then he kept the joke going far longer than it should have. A concerned friend discovered that Oren spent all his money on this joke and set up a donation page to get him back on track. Feel free to contact Oren directly about the Institute here.

'My Giant Life:' A Tall Order, but Someone's Got to do it

'My Giant Life:' A Tall Order, but Someone's Got to do it

The average height for an American woman is roughly 5-foot-5. TLC has created a five-part series called "My Giant Life" documenting the life of four very tall women, all 6-foot-6 or taller: Colleen "Coco" (6-foot-6), Lindsay (6-foot-9), Haleigh (6-foot-7) and Nancy (6-foot-9). Our crew at RightThisMinute took some time to chat with Coco, a former pro volleyball player, and Lindsay, an actress and former pro wrestler, about how they lead their lives — one giant stride at a time. Their takeaway: It hasn't always been easy, but life is as normal as it can be for them, and other tall girls should embrace their diversity and be proud.
