INDIA – A 14-year-old boy has been left with the body of a 110-year-old in India because he has a rare disease which makes him age eight times faster than normal. Ali Hussain has seen five of his siblings die from the same condition called Progeria which is known to affect just 80 people worldwide. Two of his brothers and three of his sisters have died from the disease in Bihar, the poorest state in India. Ali, who weighs just 1st 8lbs, said: ‘I would love to be a normal person who can play, go to school, do some sports, take some risks. Sometimes I get depressed but most of the time I make the most of the life I have.’
And by real life Benjamin Button I mean instead of starting old and getting young while dying peacefully in his elder years this kid just starts old and dies in agony before he's able to grow hair on his nuts. But you gotta give him credit. Born in the poorest slums in the most smelly country in the world with one of the worst genetic diseases in recorded history and the little bloke still tries to make the most of his life. Meanwhile Gran Tornino was on TNT at 3am last night and I legitimately tried to count how many times Clint Eastwood used the term “Zipperhead.” I think we're both doing what we can to get by.
This disease is awful, obviously, but this is what exactly what happens when Steve Buschemi fucks E.T.
UPDATE: Yeah you are correct, more like Jack's disease than Benjamin Button. Regardless no matter what he has he still looks like John Carpenter's The Thing.
