Adding and Subtracting
Ryan and Dave are the most unique identical twins you'll ever meet. After tiring of piercing, tattoos, and implants about three years ago, they began exploring much heavier surgical modifications. Dave had spent two and a half years in pre-med at Queens University in Kingston, and using contacts made both there and online he and his twin brother have changed themselves in ways far beyond anything anyone else has ever attempted.

The Ratman
De la Rosa starred in a 1987 feature Italian horror film made in Dominican Republic called Ratman[1]. During the 1990s Nelson continued his path to international success by becoming a staple guest at Venevision's television show Sabado Sensacional in Venezuela, and, later on, he would be invited as a guest to Don Francisco's show, Sábado Gigante, and to other Univision shows. His popularity took him to other Hispanic countries such as Argentina, where he featured several times in Susana Gimenez show, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Spain and others. He married, and had a son.

The obsessed Woman
Hang Mioku, a 48 year-old woman from South Korea, became so addicted to plastic surgery that she was left unrecognisable after her obsession led her to inject cooking oil into her face. She had her first plastic surgery procedure when she was 28. Following operation after operation, her face was eventually left enlarged and disfigured, and the surgeons she visited refused to carry out any more work on her and one suggested that her obsession could be a sign of a psychological disorder. So Hang resorted to injecting cooking oil into her face. It became so grotesquely large that she was called "standing fan" by children in her neighbourhood - due to her large face and small body.

As Hang's notoriety spread she was featured on Korean TV. Viewers seeing the report took mercy on her and sent in enough donations to enable her to have surgery to reduce the size of her face. During the first procedure surgeons removed 60g of foreign substance from Hang's face and 200g from her neck. After several other sessions her face was left greatly reduced but still scarred and disfigured.

Is it always good to hear stories a people like Lee Thomas Fox Detroit reporter that overcome difficult times in their lives. Vitiligo affects nearly 65 million people world wide and is the same disease that caused Michael Jacksons skin to turn from brown to white over the years.

World´s Oldest Twins
Kinsan Ginsan was the affectionate name give to twin sisters from Japan who were record-setting in terms of their longevity. Gin and Kin, whose names mean silver and gold in Japanese, were born on 1 August 1892 in Nagoya, 270km (170 miles) west of Tokyo. Kin was the elder daughter and Gin was the younger daughter. Tests proved that they were identical twins, although for some reason they had different blood types.

In 1991, they celebrated being about to reach 100 years of age, and were featured in a newspaper article in which the mayor of Nagoya met both of them and congratulated them. Their health and vitality, despite being over 100 years old, was said to be an ideal form of living in your sunset years, and they became national celebrities in Japan. Kin died in 2000 and Gin in the next year, at the age of 108.

By saying Strangest people i mean they are different


The Girls with too much Skin
Every morning at 5:30am without fail, Lucy and Hannah Betts from Great Yarmouth begin a punishing but life saving ritual. Helped by their mother Jan, they soak for two hours in the bath, scrubbing their skin until it is raw, to remove the extra hardened layers that have formed overnight, and then covering themselves with a thick, greasy barrier of protective cream. The whole process is repeated at bedtime.
The Betts sisters suffer from Harlequin Ichthyosis, a rare genetic condition for which there is no cure. Harlequin sufferers grow more skin overnight than a normal person does in two weeks. As it grows, their skin forms a thick, tight, crust that can crack open, allowing infection to enter if left untreated.

World´s first Bionic Man
Being the first recipient of a bionic arm, Jesse Sullivan is the world's first bionic man. He lost his arm when an accident happen while working as a high-power electrical lineman. The accident caused his two arms. With a bionic arm from the innovative "Bionic" research at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Jesse, is able to do things he couldn't do after the accident.
Developed within the Neural Engineering Center for Artificial Limbs (NECAL) at RIC, Todd Kuiken, MD, PhD, pioneered the muscle reinnervation procedure which takes an amputee's own nerves and connects them to a healthy muscle. In this case, four of Mr. Sullivan's nerves were dissected from the shoulder and transferred to the muscles of his chest. Doing so allows the user to move his or her prosthetic arm as if it were a real limb by simply thinking about what they want the arm to do. The "Bionic Arm," or myoelectric arm, is driven using electrical signals from the muscles of the chest, now activated by the user's own thought-generated nerve impulses. These impulses are sensed, via surface electrodes, from the pectoral muscle and carried through to the mechanical arm, causing the arm to move.


The Woman with Giant Legs
Mandy Sellars, from Accrington, Lancs, has been living with difficulties dragging her giant legs around which keep on expanding since she was born without being told what causes her legs huge, the doctor said her only option is a drastic amputation.
Mandy Sellars has hugely outsized legs, over 4 times bigger than normal woman leg that make her living normal life difficult throughout 33 years. Embarrassment when people stare, point and laugh even made it harder for her to survive but she got through that.
And people can be very cruel. I was in a park a few months ago when a group of teens started pointing at me, they were saying to each other, Look at the size of her legs. Mandy said.No wonder why most of the people people stare. Mandys legs are wider than the average mans waist and heavier than most women, while her body is still small.
Her left leg is five inches longer than her right and has a clubfoot, which has turned 180 degrees backwards. She says: I weigh about 20 stone 15 of which are my legs.


The World´s smallest Teenager
Standing at only 1 foot, 11 inches tall (58cm), 15-year-old Jyoti Amge is the smallest girl in the world. Amge is shorter than the average two-year-old and only weighs 11 pounds.
Amge was born with a form of Dwarfism called Achondroplasia and will not grow any taller than her current height. Because of her small size, she has to have her clothing and jewelry specially made for her. She also has to sleep in a tiny bed and use utensils that are smaller than average.
Despite her small size, she attends a school in Nagpur, India, and has her own small desk and chair. She said the other students don't treat her any differently. In fact, Amge gets treated like a celebrity in her town, and she admits to enjoying all of the attention.
Amge has said she dreams of becoming a Bollywood actress one day, given her love for DVDs and fashion.

The Fastest Man on no Legs
Oscar Pistorius, now 21, was born with a rare condition that meant both of his legs had to be amputated. With the help of state-of-the-art artificial legs, he has become one of the fastest disabled runners in the world, capable of challenging able-bodied athletes. But the athletics authorities claim that his 'blades' give him an unfair advantage. This film follows Oscar over the course of a year as he fights for the right to compete at the highest level.

The Smallest BodyBuilder
At 33 inches tall and weighing 9.25kg, Aditya 'Romeo' Dev of Phagwara, India, is considered the world's smallest bodybuilder.
Dev, 19, who is excellent, stands just 33 inches tall - but weighs an impressive 9.25kg (just under 1.5 stone), and has a chest measurement of 20 inches.

'Romeo' trains at the Leo Health Club in Phagwara, India, where his trainer is club owner Ranjit Pal (also known as 'Mr Punjab'). Pal is reputed to be the fastest skipper in India, which is a fairly brilliant claim in itself.

World´s Largest Hands
Only a couple of months ago we looked at the case of Liu Hua, the man with the largest hand in the world and the surgery he was getting to help him return to a normal life. This left a vacancy open and now Duangjai Samaksamarn, from Thailand, has been given the crown (and dubious distinction) of having the world's largest hands, by Ripley's Believe it or Not.
It appears that attempts at medical intervention have so far been botched:
No one realized that her oversized hands and arms were caused by a hormone imbalance. Hoping to right the wrong, she had two operations, one when she was 25 and another 5 years later. The operations proved to be disastrous. Instead of stopping the growth, they activated the cells causing the arms and hands to grow even larger.
She seems to be getting on with her life but her hands now weigh 10 kilograms and I think she'd swap the "fame" for getting the problem fixed. We can only hope someone is able to give her the help she needs and the extra attention Ripley's have drawn to her case will assist in this.
And yes I was restrained, as I could easily have run with the title "Give Her a Big Hand" or "You've Got to Hand it to Her" but I didn't and I wouldn't even mention it, any more.

The Wolf Boys
The Wolf People, as circus fans call them, Victor "Larry" and Gabriel "Danny" Ramos Gomez are two of a family of 19 that span five generations all suffering from the rare condition called Congenital Generalized Hypertrichosis characterized by excessive facial and bodily hair. Although the women are only covered with a light to medium coat of hair, the men of the family have thick hair on approximately 98% of their body except their hands and feet.

The US$4 million monster
Known by the press by the nickname of "The Bride of Wildenstein" --a reference to The Bride of Frankenstein--, Jocelyn Wildenstein has allegedly spent almost US$4,000,000 on cosmetic surgery over the years, ending up as one of the worst and most famous cases of plastic surgery addiction. But who did that happened?
Once upon a time, in the late 70s there was a beautiful women named Jocelyn Wildenstein. Jocelyn really had it made. She was a fresh-faced mother of two and married to an extremely rich art dealer. That is until she caught her husband in bed with a 21 year old Russian model. Now, any normal person would just leave her husband and take all of his money with her, right? Not Jocelyn Wildenstein! Instead she decided to win back her husbands love and make herself more beautiful by going under the knife. Well, her husband left her anyways, but Jocelyn will always have her plastic surgeon.


The No-Arm Licensed Pilot
Jessica Cox of Tuscon, Arizona, USA is one extraordinary lady. She been through bad time as a child but manage to be successful as an adult. She suffered a rare birth defect and was born without any arms, but also with a great spirit and character.
She a psychology graduate and can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet. She is also a former dancer and double black belt in TaeKwonDo. But above all, Jessica Cox is a motivational speaker and a license pilot. Yes, you read it right, this extraordinary no-arm lady is a pilot. Here's a video of her while flying a plane.
