What does a person who hasn't washed in 60 years look like?By Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/what-does-a-person-who-hasnt-washed-in-60-years-look-like
This 80-year-old man named Amu Haji looks like a troll or maybe some dark creature from The Lord of the Rings. His skin is covered with scales of peeling dirt, his eyes are almost invisible, and the stench of him can be felt a mile away. The reason is simple, and it's not a skin disease or some terrible ailment — just this man has not washed for the last 60 years!
It's hard to believe that the photo shows human hands. More like elephant skin.
Meet this Iranian tramp Amu Haji, who was born back in 1934, and is known for not washing for more than 60 years.
This old tramp lives on the outskirts of the small Iranian village of Dezhga in the province of Fars. And he doesn't have a name, just a nickname.: Amu-from the Farsi language translates as "good man", and Hajji — the honorary title of a Muslim who has performed the Hajj.
Amu leads a very primitive lifestyle, and his main treasure is a metal water pipe from which he smokes ... manure.
A curious photographer treated the tramp to cigarettes, which he immediately decided to smoke a bunch.
He lives in a dugout hole in the south of the country. In the winter, when it gets very cold in his home, he moves into a brick shack that was built for the old man by the inhabitants of the local village.
Most of the time he spends not moving from the place-sleeping or quietly basking in the sun.
The Iranian stopped washing in his youth. Amu says that he refused to perform hygiene procedures due to emotional failures and psychological trauma. Now the man is afraid of water. He is sure that he will get sick immediately after washing his hands or washing his face. Amu doesn't even want to hear about the bathhouse, he doesn't even want to hear about the tap water.
"People offered me to wash in their homes several times, but fortunately, I always managed to escape," Amu Haji shared his joy.
Amu tries on an old hard hat. Why he has such a strange love of dirt is an open question, many believe that psychotherapists could answer it. Of course, Amu Haji does not intend to seek psychological help and will not, and he himself is quite satisfied with the chosen lifestyle.
The old man basically does not eat fresh food and does not drink clean water. He prefers to eat rotten meat, and use an oil tank that has been unwashed for several years as a water container. Amu feeds on the corpses of animals, most often porcupines, which are baked in a fire. Sometimes it is fed by local residents. Amu drinks at least five liters of water a day.
The most smelly man in the world is not married, but is in search of a companion. For the sake of success in his personal life, Amu Haji wants to be attractive and looks after himself. To find out what he looks like, he looks in the rearview mirrors of cars and when he thinks that his beard and hair are too long, he makes a new hairstyle – sets fire to the excess. The Iranian wears the clothes that the residents of the neighboring village bring, and even wears a helmet in the frosty winter months.
One might think that Amu is unhappy, but this is far from the case. Amu doesn't think about overdue utility bills, he doesn't worry about someone stealing his stuff, he doesn't think about tomorrow. He feels happy, despite the lack of property and normal housing.
