BRIAN SHAW IS THE TWO-TIME winner of the “World’s Strongest Man” competition. He’s also absolutely gigantic. At 6′ 8″ tall, he weighs 415 pounds — mostly in muscle.
Now, I’m a fairly large person myself, and I absolutely hate traveling on airplanes. It’s insanely uncomfortable, my legs never fit between the seats, and I’m always elbowing a stranger when my shoulder inevitably ends up out in the aisle. But Shaw filmed one of his recent plane trips, and since he’s got about 5 inches and 200 pounds on me, I think I can’t complain anymore.
Watching him walk through the aisles of the plane is palpably uncomfortable, and for the first time, I’m thankful I’m not a remotely strong or muscular person.
