8 People You Won’t Believe Actually Exist. The Guy With 0% Fat Is Just… You Have To See This.
We may all live in a small world. But, there is a huge variety of people living in it. People with the most rare diseases you will ever see, to people with the most odd habits you will ever see. Needless to say diversity surrounds us in many shapes, colors, sizes, etc. But, the important thing to remember is that although there are so many differences amongst this planet’s population, we all live together, in one place….one planet.
1. Tall Model From Brazil
No one understands the plight of the tall girl more than Elisany da Cruz Silva, a 17-year-old girl from Brazil who currently stands at six feet, nine inches in height. Elisany is a remarkable girl with a very rare form of gigantism caused by a tumor on her pituitary gland. She has been experiencing great leaps in height growth since her late childhood.
Luckily, recently Elisany was able to undergo a special surgery that was intended to remove the tumor from her pituitary gland – a procedure which proved to be successful for various reasons. Since the tumor was thought to have been the cause of her gigantism, her doctors are confident that having removed the tumor not only saves her overall health, but may also stop her from growing any taller.
Elisany’s family cannot be more supportive of her and her dreams. Currently, she lives with her mother and brother and sisters, and aspires to someday become a fashion model. Since her surgery, Elisany has (to everyone’s surprised delight), decreased one inch in height – something that no one thought was possible.
2. 8 FOOT ROUND OF BOOTILICOUSNESS: THE WORLD’S WIDEST HIPS
It’s no secret that men love curves. Curvy, voluptuous women have no trouble getting attention – especially if those curves are combined with confidence and a healthy amount of sass.
No woman knows this to be true more than Mikel Ruffinelli, who currently holds the record for having the widest hips in the world. Looking at her directly from a front-end view, she appears to be a very, VERY shapely woman – but nothing would really strike you as abnormal.
Get a little closer, pull out a measuring tape, and wrap it around her hips however, and you’ll find that Mikel is way beyond your average curvy lady. Her hips measure at an amazing eight foot circumference – meaning she has a generous eight feet of bootiliciousness for you.
3. THE DIRTIEST MAN ALIVE
Somewhere deep within the dusty outskirts of Farashband, Iran lives a unique creature who could easily be considered the dirtiest human alive.
Meet Amoo Hadij, a peculiar 80-year-old man who has not bathed himself once in more than 60 years. Amoo Hadij lives in a small abandoned brick hut in the village of Dezhgah, completely alone, surrounded by garbage, dirt, and animal feces. A bit of a loner, Amoo likes to keep to himself, and rarely has the opportunity to interact with other people. This is probably due to the fact that he smells to high heaven and has the outward appearance of a troll.
However, Amoo Hadij has no idea he’s so dirty. In fact, his less than sanitary but simple life is completely by choice. He is dirty because he has refused to bathe – not because he does not have a way of cleaning himself.
Looking at Amoo, one can see that his skin is as thick as leather and a bit scaly, most likely due to the layers and layers of dirt and grime that have accumulated over his body over the last 60 years.
His face and beard are covered in black soot because he is a constant smoker, with his most prized possession being a broken steel pipe, which he uses to smoke animal dung on a daily basis. Though he’s technically not homeless, he often sleeps outside of his simple shelter, preferring the “fresh air,” as well as the warmth of his fire pit.
No one knows why Amoo has refused to bathe in over six decades. However, he seems to be doing fine. While it is difficult to understand why anyone would choose to live the way he does, he appears to be completely content with his primitive but personally satisfying lifestyle.
4. GIRL WEARS A CORSET FOR 3 YEARS IN A ROW
The worldwide struggle for a tiny waist is one of the woman-kind’s most nagging concerns. The ideal hourglass figure has been an attractive quality to both men and women for hundreds and thousands of years, and it is something for which women are willing to suffer.
Michelle Kobke is one of those women who are willing to suffer greatly for beauty.
At 24 years of old, Michelle, who lives in Germany, is obsessed with achieving the smallest waist in the world. She is so keen on the idea that she has been wearing corsets every single day for three years in a row, determined to permanently alter her physical shape through long-term reconditioning/molding.
5. THIS IS WHAT THAT “HEAD OVER HEELS” FEELING LOOKS LIKE – LITERALLY
We’ve all heard the famous saying about “falling head over heels” for someone. In general, the saying refers to the act of falling in love – the gravity-like consequences of being really into someone. But what about standing head over heels instead of falling? What would that feel like, and most importantly, what would that literally look like?
The answer to that question has recently been addressed by one artist who takes the famous saying just a little too literally. Patrice Letarnec, a talented photographer and art director based in France, has become an internet sensation overnight, with his “Head Over Heels” photography series making everyone rethink their visual expectations, as well as what it means to be disoriented both emotionally and physically.
6. LITTLE BOY WITH MOLE THE SIZE OF HIS ENTIRE BACK
Many people are born with birthmarks, moles, and other au naturel markings that are seen as nothing but small but special little evidences of uniqueness. It’s quite normal to have little spot here and there that’s unique only to you, and even many women call their beloved moles “beauty marks.” But sometimes, nature goes a little too far and a little boy is born with a mole on his back so big that it keeps him from living a normal life.
Little Didier Montalvo is a boy from Columbia who was born with a medical disorder known as Congenital Melanocytic Nevus – AKA giant mole disease. In this case, Didier’s mole was so big that it took up his entire back (a back-end view in photographs makes him resemble a ninja turtle just a little) and posed such a health risk that it was either remove the mole or possibly suffer from a multitude of deteriorating health effects. Literally, the mole was taking all his nourishment and feeding itself like a parasitic monster!
Luckily, Didier was able to undergo a special type of surgery that successfully separated him from his giant mole, allowing him to live a normal life, free from physical hindrances.
7. THIS IS WHAT ZERO PERCENT FAT LOOKS LIKE
Meet Tom Staniford, a nice guy living with Myelodysplastic Preleukemic syndrome, also known as MDP syndrome, a condition in which his body is unable to store fat under his skin. MDP is an extremely rare metabolic disorder, which is currently known to affect only a total of eight people in the entire world.
People with MDP all share the same “no fat whatsoever” characteristics, which include the appearance of sunken eyes, cheeks, and withered lips.
Tom Staniford was born at a totally normal weight, but his condition has caused him to “shrink” in appearance throughout the years. Now at 23 years of age, Tom’s whole body is pretty much just skin and bone.
As a person living with such a rare condition, Tom is somewhat of a medical wonder. No doubt he has been a very interesting case for medical experts, and often undergoes tests specially designed to measure his entire body’s physiological state.
GOOD PHOTOS GONE WRONG – FUNNY OPTICAL ILLUSIONS!
If seeing is believing, then you have no choice but to totally accept all of the following images as artifacts of reality.
How do you explain all of these quirky yet truly amazing optical illusions? Blame it on your brain’s innate urge to constantly try and make sense of what it sees. When you take a photograph, the camera actually flattens the image it captures, allowing for a bunch of really crazy optical accidents.
