Once the Roussel bug bites, everything seems devised according to secret principles of composition. This is a story from CNN entitled "World's tallest man ties knot"—

Bao was in the news in December after he used his long arms to save two dolphins by pulling out plastic from their stomachs.
The dolphins got sick after nibbling on plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province.
Attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because the dolphins' stomachs contracted in response to the instruments, Chinese media reported.
