5'8 375 Pounds


#1

There's an 18 year old freshman at mississipi state whom my friend knows. He's 5'8, and 375 pounds with 15-20% bodyfat. His story is that when he was very young he had a brain tumor that pushed against his optic nerve, and he was given high dosage chemotherapy to remove it. However, he is almost blind as a result. He was so weak after the chemotherapy that a doctor prescribed GH for him. Apparently he OD'd or had an amazing chemical reaction to it. He has custom built shoes because his feet are so wide. He walks like frankenstein, as i'm sure everyone would if they had that much mass on a 5'8 frame. He doesn't do sports because he's blind and basically uncoordinated. Why doesn't someone get this kid powerlifting?

Bring it up to him.

Who knows, maybe nobody has thought of it before. He might need an outlet.

(un)Fortunate events such as this, in life, must not be wasted.

can we see a picture of this kid

If anyone here is at Mississipi state and has seen a huge nerdy guy walking around like frankenstein, i'm sure you could probably get a picture.
That's of course assuming my friend
isn't blatantly lying to me. Seems like
a pretty elaborate lie though and he's not
exactly a big joker.

That sounds like so much of an urban legend if it IS actually true we need to get a sideshow act for this kid.

Seriously, GH wouldn't do nearly enought to account for this, and it definitely won't make you huge if you don't workout. This story sounds like something out of a comic book.
