Transformers Fan Addicted to Gasoline

BEIJING, July 20 (RIA Novosti)A 14-year-old Chinese fan of the Transformer movies has been drinking gasoline for five years in an attempt to “become a valiant fighter” like his hero Optimus Prime, Chinese media said on Monday.

At the age of nine the boy from the southwestern Chinese city of Yibin began stealing lighters from his mother’s grocery stall. After discovering that their son had drunk half a bottle of gasoline from the fuel tank of the family motorcycle “to obtain energy,” the worried parents locked the vehicle away.

The boy, however, started emptying the fuel tanks of cars in the neighborhood, gradually increasing the amount of consumed fuel to two or three bottles each day. His concerned family has sought medical advice and a doctor diagnosed the child with a serious mental disorder and “petrol addiction.”

“Since my son began drinking fuel, his IQ has dropped sharply and now he can’t figure out addition and subtraction within 100,” the father told West China Metropolis Daily. “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.”

Wow, this kid is nuts. Drinking 2 to 3 bottles of gasoline per day?? I won’t lie, I like the smell of gasoline, but who the hell is gonna drink it? Apparently crazy asian kids will. I guess this kid just gave young drug addicts around the world a solid excuse when caught by their parents…”You should just be happy I’m not on petroleum!”

I wonder if any other pop culture characters inspired such strange actions. Who knows, maybe Will and Grace fans were inspired to take a dick up the ass.

P.S. – What is 7 + 17?
