Boy With the Biggest Hands I've ever Seen

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

^I almost think this should go in a spoiler...WTF. Anyone else suffer from this?





An eight-year-old boy has been shunned from his school after his hands ballooned to gigantic proportions larger than his head.

Kaleem, a keen cricket fan, was left unable to do even basic tasks – including tying his shoelaces and feeding himself – after his hands grew to an incredible 13 inches from the end of his middle finger to the base of his palm.

The cricket fan is unable to do many basic tasks - including tying his shoes laces - and has been bullied and shunned most of his life. His parents, who live in eastern India, and earn just £15 a month, have been desperately trying to find help for their son but to no avail. Doctors have been left baffled by his condition but believe it may be the result of either lymphangioma or hamartoma - both treatable conditions.

India has a lot of weird cases like these. I mean sure, they have a huge population, but I can't help but think industrial waste and toxic contamination might have a role in these cases.

It's weird the number of abnormalities that come out of remote Indian towns - issues with the DNA pool? Inbreeding? I've never heard of any heavy metal/agent orange/thalidomide issues there...

anyone who's ever seen the side effects of over breeding in animals wouldn't be surprised by this. 2 headed/2 tailed/5 legged/etc monstrosities make this look almost normal.
