15 Men That You Won’t Believe Exist
It’s a weird, wacky and wild world out there! You probably see crazy stuff all day long where you live. Well, believe us when we tell you: you are not going to believe the men you’re about to see. In one way or another, each one of these men is exceptional. As a matter of fact, none of them should even exist. But, exist they do! And, we’ve collected them here in this convenient list, so you too can experience just how crazy these dudes really are. So, what are you waiting for? Get clicking!
1. Francisco Domingo Joaquim
There are some really weird talents in the world, but this one might be one of the weirdest. Francisco, who’s from Angola, has the distinction of having the biggest mouth in the entire world. And no, we’re not talking about his willingness to say whatever is on his mind. We’re talking about how he can take an entire can of soda and fit in his mouth. Imagine that. Imagine what him eating is like. So crazy!
2. Gary Turner
If Francisco Domingo Joaquim has a mouth that can stretch out, then Gary Turner can just stretch out. Literally. He has, as you might surmise from the picture, the world’s most stretchable skin. The reason for the stretchiness is a rare condition that makes his skin twice as thin as normal skin. Among many other things, he’s apparently able to fashion the skin on his stomach into a table. Weird!
3. The Gaulin Children
Albinism is incredibly rare in human beings. That’s what makes the fact that three children from the same family, the Gaulin children, are all albinos! It’s not just sheer fate that lead to this though. As it happens, their father is himself an albino, while their mother is not. However, their mother possesses the gene in latent form, and this fact led to this most uncommon of occurrences. Someone call David Lynch!
4. Mehmet Ozyurek
Are you one of those people who constantly complain about the size of their noses? Maybe you think about how much more handsome you’d be if you could get a nose job. Well, we’re here to make you feel better. Mehmet up there has the biggest nose in the entire world. How long is it, you ask? That schnoz is about 3.5 inches long. Hopefully that doesn’t make you feel worse about that thing in your pants.
5. Dede Koswara
Speaking of David Lynch, you’ve got to check out Dede Kosowara. You’ve probably seen him on television before, where he’s usually referred to as the “Tree Man”. Apparently he contracted this affliction by scratching his foot in the forest. If you’re keeping scientific score at home, though, there’s a medical term for his affliction. Are you ready for it? It’s “epidermodysplasia verruciformis”. Try saying that 10 times fast.
6. Melvin Booth
Whereas Dede Koswara has no control over the appearance of his extremities, this man does. Melvin Booth made it his mission to have the longest fingernails in the world, and he’s succeeded in that mission. We don’t know how long it took him to grow these bad boys, but it must’ve been a really long time. The combined length of all 10 of his fingernails is a whopping 32 feet! That’s 3.2 feet per fingernail.
7. Chandra Bahadur Dangi
So you wish you were a baller, wish you were a little bit taller, do you? Well, thank God you’re not as short as Chandra Bahadur Dangi, because he’s the shortest man on the planet! How short is he, you ask? Well, he doesn’t even rise to the height of 2 feet. He’s only 1 foot and 9-and-a-half inches tall. Normally you round those half inches down, but we’ll give Chandra a pass in this case.
8. Sultan Kosen
Now, if we’re going to show you the shortest person in the world, then it just stands to reason that we’re going to show you the tallest person in the world, right? Well, as you might have already surmised from the picture, that’s him. Sultan Kosen is a whopping 8 feet and 3 inches tall. And, no, he’s not a professional basketball player. (The NBA would love him, though, wouldn’t they?) He’s just a farmer.
9. Tran Van Hay
Looking at that picture up there, it might not be immediately clear what you’re looking at. Does this guy have the weirdest hat known to man? Does it have something to do with his beard? Well, you were closer with your first guess! Tran happens to have the longest hair in the entire world. He stopped cutting it due to a superstition, and it’s been growing for 50 straight years. It’s nearly 7 meters long!
10. Ram Singh Chauhan
Now, if you were guessing beard on the last one, then here’s your reward. Ram here is the proud owner of the world’s longest mustache. It’s been a work in progress since 1970, and he has to spend nearly an hour each and every day taking care of it. That may seem like a long time, but consider this: He’s got 14 feet of mustache hanging from his face. Take that Brooklyn hipsters!
11. Byron Schlenker
Have you ever wished that you could taste more of your food? Have you ever wished that your tongue was so large that it could just soak in ever last drop of deliciousness? Well, that’s the life of Byron Schlenker, who has the world’s widest tongue. How wide is it, you ask? It’s 8.6 centimeters across. To give you an idea how large that is, find an iPhone 6 Plus and shove it in your mouth. It’s five millimeters wider than that.
12. Nick Stoeberl
Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet! Gene Simmons DOES NOT have the longest tongue in the world. That distinction belongs to the man you’re looking at up there, Nick Stoeberl. We’re not sure if he enjoys having such a long tongue or not. However, there’s one thing we’re certain of. Whoever his girlfriend is, she probably never wants to let him go… Because he’s such a sweetheart! (It’s because of his tongue.)
13. Vijay Sharma
While Nick may be able to do amazing things with his tongue (hello, ladies), Vijay here can do amazing things with his body! He is the world’s most flexible man. Really, if you can think of it, his body can probably do it. Both legs over his head, his arms wrapped completely around his body and holding hands in front… We bet he can even do that other thing; you know, that thing you tried once because you heard Marilyn Manson can do it. (He can’t.)
14. Lucky Diamond Rich
You know how your parents told you never to get a tattoo? “Tattoos are forever,” they said! “Think about how those tattoos are going to look when you sixty years old,” they exclaimed. Well, that’s advice that Lucky Diamond Rich either never received or never took. His body is entirely covered in tattoos. The whole body, all 100% of it. And, just to leave no room for error, he even tattooed the insides of his eyelids.
15. Rolf Buchholz
Even though having a body entirely covered in tattoos isn’t for everyone, we have to admit that it still looked pretty cool. But this man, named Rolf Buchholz, is an entirely different story. As you might be able to tell from his face, he owns the world record for most piercings. As if all that metal weren’t bad enough, he apparently had to cap things off by having horns implanted into his forehead. Wonderful.
