Wacko Wire: No Bath... EVER!
posted Jan 16 2014 3:31PM
Living a clean life just isn’t for him. An 80-year-old Iranian man has gone 60 years without bathing!
Amou Haji believes cleaning himself will bring sickness, so he forgoes soap and water. His eccentricities don’t end there! Haji’s favorite food is rotten porcupine and he enjoys smoking a pipe packed with animal feces. He wears rags for clothes and, in the winter, a war helmet to keep warm. When he needs to trim his hair, he burns it in fire. But while it may seem strange – and profoundly unhygienic - Haji says he’s happy with his lifestyle, so who are we to judge? We just wouldn’t want to smell him!
