How tall was Pier Gerlofs Donia?
He was a very big man, as stated in many tales about him. Frisian people are known for their tallness in whole the world, and since he carried a 2,15 meter sword, this is evidence of him being a man of unusual stature indeed. Also, his helmet is kept in the city of Sneek, Frisia, and also indicates his enormous size. The size of his armour and relatives still living as of 1900 give indication for his height to have been at around 7 ft tall. His shoulders must have been enormously broad when looking at his cuirass; this put's his weight at approxamitely 430 lbs.

Yes , Pier Gerlofs Donia (c. 1480 - 1520) may be considered a cult figure. A cult figure is someone who elicits admiration and inspires a devoted following. The person in question may or may not be part of a religious cult. Regarding Donia, that certainly was not the case. Instead, Donia's followers… throughout history, and including the present day, see him as the symbol of the ordinary person who takes up arms against injustice and actually succeeds. Specifically, a foreign force under George, Duke of Saxony (27 August 1471 - 17 April 1539), camped about 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) away from Donia's property in Kimswerd, a Frisian language-speaking village in the Netherlands. The regiment in question was known for brutal treatment of local populations. On January 29, 1515, the regiment indeed entered Donia's home village, destroyed his property, and raped and killed his wife, Rintsje Syrtsema. Donia responded with a very successful rampage against Hollanders, the English and the Burgundians. For four years, Donia's enemies feared for their property and their lives, on land and sea. Just as suddenly as he started so did Donia quickly end his successful series of lightning raids. In fact, he died safe and revered in his own bed about one year after he ended his career as one of Europe's most wanted pirates. (MORE)

When the Iranian Shahnameh hero Rostam would have fought in a dual against Frisian freedom fighter Pier Gerlofs Donia who would have probably won?
Rostam and Pier lived in different times, different cultures and among different people; there is now way they couldm have met each other. If they did, it would have been one hell of a sight! You should not forget, however; Rostam was a hero, and Donia was just a man driven insane by the killing of …his intire family. A man who fights demons and wizards in ancient times, shouldn't have much problems defeating a slow brute.. So the fight would likely go something like this :. Rostam walks towards his enemy, who is an awfully large brute, and takes his sword without even the slightest fear or regret. Before Donia can even grab his 2,15 meter sword, Rostam stands in front of him, stabbing him in the upper leg or abdomen with his own. By then, Donia would have wielded the gigantic sword, but due the pain of the wound inflicted, his strike likely misses his opponent. Than, Rostam cuts the enormous hand of Donia, and the giant drops his sword. After this, Rostam would have stabbed the giant in the chest, finishing him of. . That's my opinion. (MORE)

It's the skin between your nostrils. You can wear a hoop or a curved barbell in the piercing. I had mine done about 10 years ago. It didn't hurt too bad. When it was really cold out though, if I had metal jewelry in, it would make my nose itch.
Well, isolated means alone. A pier is a place where boats go to. Does it make more sense if I say lonely harbor?

Navy Pier is a 3,300-foot (1,010 m) long pier on the Chicago shoreline of Lake Michigan. It is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of the Near North Side community area. The pier was built in 1916 at a cost of $4.5 million, equivalent to $87.8 million today. It was a part of the Plan of Chica…go developed by architect and city planner Daniel Burnham and his associates. As Municipal Pier #2 (Municipal Pier #1 was never built), Navy Pier was planned and built to serve as a mixed-purpose piece of public infrastructure. Its primary purpose was as a cargo facility for lake freighters, and warehouses were built up and down the pier. However, the pier was also designed to provide docking space for passenger excursion steamers, and in the pre-air conditioning era parts of the pier, especially its outermost tip, were designed to serve as cool places for public gathering and entertainment. The pier even had its own streetcar. Today, Navy Pier is Chicago's number one tourist attraction.  .

Construction Construction began in 1914 under the leadership of Charles Sumner Frost and took two years, at a total cost of $4.5 million. When it opened to the public in 1916, it was the largest pier in the world. The Pier was built both to handle shipping and as an entertainment site. The original Burnham Plan proposed five piers, but only one was commissioned. In 1917-18, during World War I the pier housed many soldiers, the Red Cross, and Home Defense units. In years to follow the pier expanded to have its own streetcar line, a theater, and an emergency room. In the 1927 the pier was officially named Navy Pier in honor of the Naval personnel that served there during the war.  First Use: Pier During construction, 1915. Chicago Daily News photo.. Even as Chicago Municipal Pier was being built, the invention of mass-produced cars and trucks was beginning to wreak havoc on the package freight and passenger steamboat industries of Lake Michigan. The pier proved to be much more successful as a public gathering place. By the late 1930s, the pier was described as a summer playground with recreational facilities that included picnicking areas, dining pavilions, a dance hall, auditorium, and children's playground.  During the 1950s, it is estimated that an average of 3.2 million visitors frequented the pier annually, with peak attendance for the "Pageant of Progress". This decade is sometimes called the pier's "Golden Age". The use of the pier for serious marine purposes reached a temporary peak during World War II, when the city leased the pier to the U.S. Navy. The Navy's air group training arm made the pier a quay for a pair of converted flattops, the USS Wolverine and the USS Sable (IX-81), which were used as freshwater trainee carriers. At this time, 60,000 sailors as well as 15,000 pilots including future President George H. W. Bush, used this area for training. Second Use: College Classroom With the war over, Navy Pier went to the University of Illinois, which used the facility beginning in 1946 for a two-year undergraduate program to educate returning veterans. During its University of Illinois days, Navy Pier was also the site of a string of public events. The International Exhibitions of the early 1960s drew attractions from around the world, including circus and folkloric dance acts, arts and crafts, and international cuisine. In 1965, the University moved to the Chicago Circle campus, and the pier again fell into disuse.  Third Use: Public Gathering Place From 1965-1989, Navy Pier was considered an underutilized eyesore. No government agency in or around Chicago wanted to invest money in it. Many advocates, inspired by the Plan of Chicago and the pier's successful use as a public gathering place in the 1920s, called for its reconstruction. In 1976, Navy Pier began its third life as an area for public exhibits, when the East Buildings (furthest into Lake Michigan) were opened as exhibition halls. Special events including music and arts festivals began to draw crowds to the pier despite its aging infrastructure. Navy Pier from the John Hancock Building. From 1979 to 1987, a submarine, the USS Silversides, was docked at Navy Pier. In 1989, the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority took control over the pier. Major renovation and construction followed in the 1990s at a cost of US$200 million. As rebuilt in the 1990s, the pier's layout included fast-food kiosks, shops, a ballroom, a concert stage, and convention exhibition halls. Centerpiece attractions include a 150-foot (46 m)-tall Ferris wheel, an IMAX theater, the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze, the Chicago Children's Museum, the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows, and at the entrance to Navy Pier is a statue of Oak Park comedian Bob Newhart, sponsored by the TV Land network. The pier now features a large front lawn showcasing numerous larger-than-life public art sculptures and an interactive animated fountain created by WET (of Fountains of Bellagio fame). The pier continues to be used as an embarkation point for tour and excursion boats and is a popular place to watch lakefront events, including the annual Air and Water airshow and the parade of lighted and decorated boats during Chicago's Venetian Night festival. The pier and its grounds encompass more than 50 acres (200,000 m 2 ) of parks, gardens, shops, restaurants and other shore entertainment. Navy Pier contains 170,000 total square feet of exhibition space, 50,000 square feet (5,000 m 2 ) of reception space and 48,000 square feet (4,500 m 2 ) of meeting room space. Attractions Navy Pier attractions include sightseeing tours from companies such as Seadog I, II, IV, and Extreme, Shoreline Sightseeing cruises and Water Taxi service, and the Tall Ship Windy. There are also dinner cruises by the Spirit of Chicago, The Odyssey, and the Mystic Blue Cruise line. Other attractions include rides like the Ferris Wheel along with many seasonal festivals for Halloween and Christmas. The pier has fireworks on Wednesday and Saturday nights during the summer and Friday and Saturday nights during the fall. The popular Strictly Sail boat show and Chicago Flower and Garden Show are held at the Pier as well as many other fairs and expositions throughout the year. Also a part of Navy Pier is the Childrens' Museum with many different exhibits and activities for both children and adults to enjoy while visiting the museum.   The pier also has an IMAX theater, and the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows, many of which were salvaged from Chicago mansions. An anchor from the naval vessel U.S.S. Chicago is on display at the far end of the pier  Future plans Navy Pier logo as of 2008.. On January 13, 2006, the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority released plans for a major renovation of the pier which would include a monorail, a 260-foot (79 m) spokeless Ferris wheel, a roller coaster, floating hotel, and an 80,000-square-foot (7,000 m 2 ) water park with a Great Lakes theme. The plan would include nearly double the current parking and a replacement theater with a greater capacity. At the time of the announcement, a price tag of $2 billion was announced.   No concrete progress has been made on those proposals. The financial condition of the Pier has suffered with the recession. The Authority is again working with consultants on a plan for improvements, as well as looking for an outside company to build and operate a larger replacement for the current Ferris Wheel.
