Kid drinks gasoline for 5 years to become a Transformer

Didn't see this posted anywhere.

A 14-YEAR-OLD boy drank gasoline for five years to obtain "energy" - just as his idols "Bumble Bee" or "Optimus Prime" do in "Transformers," the Sichuan-based West China Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

After the boy, in Yibin City, southwest Sichuan Province, had watched the animated TV series, he began to drink gasoline to become a "valiant fighter" like "Optimus Prime," his father told the newspaper.

"He began to drink gasoline five years ago, when we found he liked smelling lighter fuel," he said.

The boy's mother owned a grocery stall, selling small goods such as lighters.

In 2004, she often found lighters missing two or three days after she'd bought them. She later found that her son had been stealing them.

The parents talked to their son and asked him not to do it again. "But afterwards we found our motorcycle's gasoline was always disappearing, and one day when we found the boy had drunk a half bottle of gasoline stolen from the motorcycle, we were too shocked to say anything," the father said.

IQ dropped

They locked the motorcycle away after that but the boy began to steal gasoline from neighbors and was drinking more and more - two or three bottles at a time.

"Since my son started to drink gas, his IQ has dropped sharply and now he can't figure out simple addition and subtraction," the father said.

"Before that, he was a very smart boy, and he could even repair the television. But now he does not know the answer of 7 plus 17."

The worried parents finally took their son to hospital where they were told the boy had a mental disorder and a strong "gasoline dependence."

"The gasoline contains a lot of lead, which can do harm to people's brains. To make thing even worse, the boy is in the physical development stage, and the lead has caused serious damage to his body," Peng Houquan, a doctor from a hospital in Yibin, said.

"Transformers" is now a Hollywood blockbuster movie franchise and the second live-action film is currently breaking box office records in China.

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" has gained 400 million yuan (US$58.4 million) in the country, breaking the record set by "Titanic" 10 years ago.

How this kid is still breathing is beyond me.

Someone should have informed this kid that gasoline doesn't turn you into Optimus but rather into one of the twins.

I find it funny that his parents didn't think something was wrong for 5 years.

Considering it's China, they were probably thinking he was turning himself into a superhuman calculator so he can get into Shanghai Jiao Tong and not disgrace the family.

I don't recall any of the Transformers ever drinking gasoline.

If you're going to do something stupid, at least try and stick to canon.

Just to be sure we are on the same page - the kid didn't turn into a Transformer, right?

Gas in China is not lead free? No wonder the air quality is so bad over there.

I guess this kid really is "more than meets the eye"



I wonder what would happen if he peed on fire. hmmmm

When puberty is in full swing, he'll probably start fucking cars and starting forest fires by masturbating outside.

In all seriousness, how is he still alive? 2-3 bottles a day? Jeez...

I'm keeping my eyes open for both these headlines in the near-future.
