    Since we're paying grantham $1.4 million I don't think we'll be able to afford to feed this kid.

    I wonder if he's going to be too tall to play football.

    Curiously large for his age. Almost sure to have a short and relatively unhealthy lifespan (speaking as a trained Gerontologist and lifespan development person).

    If he was held back 7 times (which I can't believe of a Musician - bass clarinet - interesting choice - I'd more expect a brass instrument from someone this large), that would make him about 21 years of age, which would be too old to play football in school.

    If he's 13, 14 or perhaps 15, then he may grow to 7'6" and 500 lbs by the time he's a senior in HS.

    Think about the poor young man trying to fit into an airplane seat, or even a typical bed. Since 18 shoe size. Where can they find shoes for him.

    Being this unusual makes for a very difficult life.
