Sup Travellers?! When last did you take a bath? I would assume that you probably took one within the last two days. For your information, I took a bath a couple hours ago because I believe in bathing. But apparently not everyone on earth shares my belief. 80-year-old Amou Haji believes that cleanliness brings him sickness. Because of this belief he hasn't bathed in 60 whole years according to Huffington Post. This means that he hasn't bathed since he was 20 years old. That's the dirty truth right there.

Haji lives in isolation in Dejgah village, in the Southern Iranian province of Fars. And after all his years of not bathing Haji is almost the color of earth. He has managed to completely blend in with his surroundings. In fact, it’s easy to mistake him for a rock statue if he sits very still. NO JOKE!!! But that's just the tip of the iceberg shitberg. He also dislikes fresh food and clean drinking water. His favorite meal is ROTTEN porcupine meat. He drinks 5 liters of water a day for health purposes, but only from a large rusty oil can. He likes to fill his smoking pipe with animal feces instead of tobacco. To trim his hair he doesn't use clippers; he just burns it off over an open flame. An old war helmet keeps his head warm during the winter and he lives in a hole in the ground that looks somewhat like a grave.

It seems to me that this man's practice goes way beyond beliefs and ideologies. I think he's got some strange wiring in his head that makes him so dirty. Not bathing for 60 years is one thing but smoking animal feces and eating rotten foods is another thing. The fact that he chose the dirty life means that it's how he prefers to live. There a lot of vagrants who don't bathe but it's usually because they don't have a choice. I don't like to judge people on the way that they choose to live but I think that I can safely say that there is something very wrong with Haji. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
