It’s winter season and bathing seems like a task, doesn’t it? Well, how long can you go without showering? A day or two maximum? Turns out, you are nowhere close to this man who hasn’t bathed in over six decades.

Amou Haji is an 87-year-old man and he hasn’t taken a bath in 67 years. He resides in Dejgah which is a village in the Kermanshah province of Iran. He also looks like the Biblical Moses who fell down a chimney.

He is always covered in ash and dirt. He hasn’t taken a bath for nearly seven decades because he is scared of water. He is of the belief that if he will bathe, he will fall ill.

What is even more unusual is that his diet consists of rotten meat of dead animals, especially porcupines. He also enjoys smoking but it is not tobacco he prefers. He likes to smoke animal feces out of a rusty pipe.

According to Tehran Times, Haji decided to live an isolated life after he went through some emotional setbacks in his youth.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off enemies but to keep him warm during winters.

Human beings are complicated creatures.

A 29-year- old man, Naseem Ahmed, who allegedly killed his girlfried and their child in South Africa was arrested on Thursday, January 21.

Chantelle Ester Ash and their 9-month-old daughter, Tasneem Isha Ash were found strangled at a lodge in R518 road between Mokopane and Marken road in Masodi village, on the 14th of January. Their hands were tied from the back and their bodies in a state of decomposition.

Provincial police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, who confirmed the incident said that on Tuesday, 12 January 2021 at about 19:00, “a man and woman with their nine-month-old baby were dropped off at the gate of the lodge by a grey unknown motor vehicle.”

Apparently, the trio rented a room for overnight accommodation without providing their personal information and promised the receptionist that they will check out the next day, on Wednesday 13 January 2021 at 09:00.

The following day, the receptionist decided to go and check on them and made the gruesome discovery. Furthermore, there was no presence of the male person who came to the lodge with them.

The Police were immediately notified. The 72-hour activation plan which included the Crime Intelligence, Tracking Team, Detectives and other supporting units were mobilised.

A massive manhunt was launched which resulted in the arrest of this suspect at Brixton, in the Gauteng Province.

Ngoepe said the motive behind this incident is still not clear at this stage but domestic violence may not be ruled out.

The suspect, said to be a Pakistani national, appeared in the Mokerong Magistrate’s Court on Friday, January 22.

Meanwhile, the Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has welcomed the arrest of the suspect.

The Provincial Commissioner has applauded the Police for the speedy arrest and highlighted the swift action should send a clear message to those involved in heinous crimes especially against women and children that they will be tracked down and brought to book.

9 Famous And Successful People Who Died As Virgins

Provided bellow are the names of the 9 most famous and successful People who never experience sex before they died.

1# Sir Isaac Newton

While Sir Isaac Newton was responsible for creating the laws of motion and universal gravitation — apparently none of these top-tier accomplishments could help the man get laid.

Several reasons and witnesses claim that newton had little interest in sex.

He believed using his time to have sex is like using the whole of his previous life to practice what does not profit him anything.

2# Mother Teresa
When you become a nun, you make a vow of celibacy on behalf of the church and God. So, piggybacking off this notion, it should not be all that surprising that Mother Teresa — the Michael Jordan of nuns — died a virgin.

Mother Teresa was a known faithful servant of God.

She is a type that fear God so much. She believed having sex is ever a sin against God and humanity.

3# Nikola Tesla
Tesla allegedly died a virgin.

While Tesla might have been one of the greatest inventors of all time, he clearly lacked some inventive pick-up lines.

Clearly he did not invent the light to keep them on during the sex he was not having. He is a scientist and also a God fearing Man.

4#. Andy Warhol
Much about Warhol’s sexuality — and personal life, in general — was kept very private from the public eye.

Although he divulged his homosexuality in interviews, he also was not shy about his own virginity.

5# Lewis Carroll
Thankfully, Lewis Carroll was said to have died a virgin…probably for the best.

6#. Joan of Arc
I snickered a little bit when I read that Joan of Arc has actually been dubbed the “Virgin Warrior,” in certain circles. But, yeah, Joan of Arc died a virgin — but only as a result of her devout Christian beliefs.

She believed that sex both in marriage or outside marriage is always a sins against God and humanity.

Joan of Arc was a total babe, though. She could’ve gotten it.

7# Queen Elizabeth I
It has been said that Queen Elizabeth 1 died a virgin, after rejecting every single marriage proposal that came her way while she was alive.

Despite being one of the most powerful women of all time, when it came to her sex life, she will be angry to the extent that, She could do things shocking.

8# Immanuel Kant
Many of Immanuel Kant’s main principles hinged on a general premise of duty, as opposed to seeking personal fulfillment. Kant’s philosophies on life focused on the greater good of society rather than seeking individual enjoyment.

Kant clearly practiced what he preached, too, as he reportedly didn’t pursue any romantic or sexual relationships during his time on earth. I guess Perhaps his manhood was good enough.

9# Rev father fidelis eleojo egbunu.
father fidelis, a Catholic priest was a virgin and a preacher, who preach against sex and unnecessary pleasure.
