This 80 year-old man looks like a troll or maybe a creature from The Lord of the Rings. His skin is scaly, you can barely see his eyes and he smells to high heaven. The reason for this is simple, he doesn’t have a skin disease or terrible condition: he has just refused to take a bath for sixty years. A Reddit user posted the gallery below. It’s hard to believe this is a real human being.
The (allegedly) 80 year-old leads a fairly primitive life, with his most prized possession being a steel pipe… that he smokes animal dung with.
He seems to blend in with his surroundings.
He lives in the village of Dezhgah (city of Farashband in Fars province of Iran).
It’s not known why he hasn’t bathed in decades.
But you can tell he lives a dirty, but simple, life.
As well as cleanliness, Mr Haji also has an aversion to clean food and drink. He much prefers the rotten meat of dead animals and five litres of water a day from a rusty oil can.
But don’t think Mr Haji doesn’t look after himself – when he wants to look his best he uses car mirrors for grooming, The Tehran Times reported.
And, when he needs a haircut, he simply burns his locks in a fire.
As for clothing, he wears rags and, in the winter, a war helmet to ward off the cold .
The last record of longest time going without showers belonged to a 66-year-old Indian man, Kailash Singh, who had not taken a bath over 38 years.
Mr Haji claims to have beaten that.
