Categories: WorldBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/10-men-whose-existence-is-hard-to-believe
Each of us is unique. It's hard to argue with this statement, and although globalization, coupled with mass culture, have done their job — now in any country in the world they can listen to The Beatles, wear jeans and drive a Ford Focus, there are still no two identical people. Everyone is unique!
This is especially true for the 10 extraordinary men to whom this material is dedicated: they are very different from others. Perhaps they can be called one of the most unusual people on planet Earth.
Indonesian Dede Kosvara was not called the tree man for nothing. The fact is that the warts that began to grow all over his body after he once scratched his knee reached really terrifying sizes. Subsequently, Dede was diagnosed with Lewandowski-Lutz dysplasia. This is a disease in which the processes of tissue growth are disrupted and warts begin to grow throughout the body. Having tried many attempts to recover and not having achieved success, Dede died in February 2016.
Brian Shaw is not to be trifled with. In 2015, he was recognized as the strongest man in the world for the third time. Brian is able to lift an object weighing 442 kilograms. Even Haftor Bjornsson, who played the Mountain in Game of Thrones, could not repeat this achievement. Just imagine what Brian would do to Oberyn Martell.
Many men fight a hard battle with their beard every morning. However, Yu Zhenghuan would need an unusually powerful razor. The fact is that Yu is the most hairy person in the world: about 96% of the surface of his body is covered with hair. Problems with vegetation began when Yu was only two years old. A bearded child, can you imagine? It's almost like "The Mysterious Story of Benjamin Button."
Do you have a piercing? You want to, but you doubt? If you want to talk about this with someone, we know a great interlocutor: Rolf Buchholz is the person with the largest number of body piercings: there are more than 100 punctures on his face and body.
When you think about someone with blue skin, the movie "Avatar" or Smurfs comes to mind, but such people exist not only in the imagination of the authors. For example, such a person was regularly seen in the mirror by Paul Carason. And this is not a mystical story about mysterious mirrors, this is the harsh truth: Paul's skin turned blue when he tried to cure dermatitis with colloidal silver, which led to argyrosis - a condition caused by prolonged deposition of silver in the body, in which the skin acquires a silvery or bluish hue.
Leonid Stadnik from Ukraine, if he wanted, everything would have worked out perfectly with basketball. At one time, he was recognized as the tallest man in the world, his height was 253 centimeters. The fact is that at the age of 14, Leonid needed an operation, during which certain processes in the body were disrupted, and his pituitary gland - the gland that produces growth hormone - began to work at a rapid pace. Leonid died in 2014 from a brain hemorrhage.
Do you know what is the most pleasant thing after a long working day? Relax in a soft bed. However, everything has its limits. Patrick Dewell has not left his bed for 7 years. But this is not the most interesting fact about him. For a while, Patrick was the heaviest man on earth: his weight was 464 kilograms. Being so heavy is not so easy. When Patrick had to get to a doctor's appointment, he had to make a hole in the wall. The doctors performed gastric bypass surgery for Patrick, and after that he managed to lose 226 kilograms, but later, unfortunately, he began to gain weight again. He died in April 2016 at the age of 54.
When you think of someone of small stature, you probably imagine a hobbit or Tyrion Lannister. But Nepalese citizen Chandra Bahadur Dangi would even look up at them: his height is only 54.6 centimeters. He is officially recognized as the shortest man in the world. Of course, there is an explanation for this: Chandra was diagnosed with one of the varieties of dwarfism. We hope he never had the desire to become a basketball player.
When was the last time you took a shower or bath? We are sure you know the answer to this question, and if not— well, then you have something to do right after reading this post. Amu Haji, an 80-year-old resident of Iran, has not washed for 60 years. And Amu smokes cigarettes, which he himself makes from animal excrement. Something tells us that Amu has no friends.
Harry Turner was probably loitering around like any three-year-old when he noticed that his skin was incredibly elastic. So much so that it alarmed his parents, and after an examination, Harry was diagnosed. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of hereditary connective tissue diseases in which the skin has increased elasticity. Impressive, isn't it?
