    While that's pretty amazing, humans aren't intended to be optimized for one type of activity like he is.
    I would guess that he has trouble buying clothes, and probably has people stop and stare at him when he walks down the street.

    These guys are waaaaaaay out to the right of the Bell Curve! Almost freaks of nature, in fact.

    Similarly, I have seen 1,000 pound bench presses on TV. That is a staggering feat of strength. A guy who can bench 300 pounds or so is stronger than probably 95 percent of men on the planet. But compared with a 500 pound bench presser, he's almost a weakling - and against 1,000 pounds he's a puny shrimp!

    That's because they've got hemorroids.

    No, it's 'cause they can't reach it. Lats and glutes are too big to reach around the back, gut's too big to go the other way.

    Their wives have to clean them.
