It would be nice if humans could photosynthesize sunlight into caloric energy.   It would be nice if humans had a basic grasp of science.

I'm sure this guy will attract a bunch of new age hippies and fellow scammers who will add "breatharian lifestyle" to their arsenal of alternative medicine bullshiat, like "Reiki healing", to be used to sucker desperate people.   I bet he's a psychic too.

I recall reading about one if these guys in India who agreed to be closely observed for several months. They caught him sneaking off to eat.

I wonder what the angle is here. Seems to me that if these guys actually believed their nonsense they would starve to death, so they must all be deliberately faking. How do they make money?

Was that the kid in India they swore never moved from his mediation, and they set up a secret thermal imaging camera from a distance (because this kid was behind a fence and otherwise protected from any that would try to disturb him) and caught him moving from the spot in the middle of the night, then the guys running the scam claimed he had to be moved to a more secure location because of external threats to his guru-ish person?

"Junk Food Junkie"

You know I love that organic cooking
I always ask for more
And they call me Mr Natural
On down to the health food store
I only eat good sea salt
White sugar don't touch my lips
And my friends are always begging me
To take them on macrobiotic trips
Yes, they are

Oh, but at night I stake out my strong box
That I keep under lock and key
And I take it off to my closet
Where nobody else can see
I open that door so slowly
Take a peek up north and south
Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
And I pop it in my mouth

Yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Well, at lunchtime you can always find me
At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
From my hand thrown pottery jar
And sippin' a little hand pressed cider
With a carrot stick for dessert
And wiping my face in a natural way
On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
Oh, yeah

Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
And I'm all by myself
I work that combination on my secret hideaway shelf
And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
Dr Pepper and an ole Moon Pie
Then I sit back in glorious expectation
Of a genuine junk food high

Oh yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
Oh, but at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

My friends down at the commune
They think I'm pretty neat
Oh, I don't know nothing about arts and crafts
But I give 'em all something to eat
I'm a friend to old Euell Gibbons
And I only eat home grown spice
I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
Filled up with my brown rice
Yes, I do

Oh, folks but lately I hae been spotted
With a Big Mac on my breath
Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
With a face as white as death
I'm afraid someday they'll find me
Just stretched out on my bed
With a handful of Pringles potato chips
And a Ding Dong by my head

In the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Different person I think, and India seems prone to this sort of thing.  I never cease to be amused by the fact frauds like this not only claim rigorous scientific observation interferes with their magic powers, but that this argument actually appears to convince believers.

There was also some monk who claimed, in addition to never eating, that he didn't have to drink water either.  He did, though, bathe himself in a fashion that appeared to allow him to take several swallows of water.

So he gets calories from a particle of light, and from light?  Doesn't sound like he knows much about photons or light; not that he had any credibility to begin with.

Related to "not eating", I do know someone who didn't eat for 3 years.  They had a gastric bypass surgery that was completely jacked up.  The surgeon didn't staple his stomach closed entirely.  They damaged nerves in the stomach that help with peristalsis, forcing him to sit up and use gravity to process any nourishment.  He lived off vitamin b injections, sub-lingual vitamins and crappy beer for 3 years before another surgeon opened him back up to repair everything the first surgeon screwed up. The first 6 months he lost 200 lbs, but had major problems with eating. Once he started the beer and vitamins diet he gained 70 lbs over a couple years.   Since the most recent surgery he can eat regular food again in small portions. True story!

Due to a friend who suggested it as a "diet" (and said she was doing the same thing, too), I actually lived on nothing but water, Tab and cigarettes for nearly three months one summer when I was a teenager. Ended up losing 35 pounds.

Then, of course, as you'd expect, I got sick (mono) and was laid up in bed for several weeks. I found out my friend had been forced to eat dinner every night (we were just learning about anorexia's existence back then, but luckily for her she had parents who were clued in), and I gave up the "diet."

You can survive without food?  Fine.  Prove it.  Get some scientists to set up a test lab for you to live in and you will be denied food.  You will be locked in and the only one who will be able to unlock the door is yourself. 

Somehow, though, I think that if asked to prove it in a laboratory setting that he would come up with some excuse as to why he could not do this.

Mock26: You can survive without food?  Fine.  Prove it.  Get some scientists to set up a test lab for you to live in and you will be denied food.  You will be locked in and the only one who will be able to unlock the door is yourself. 

Somehow, though, I think that if asked to prove it in a laboratory setting that he would come up with some excuse as to why he could not do this.


Well, he does claim that he gets his nourishment from wind, sun, and air. So he'd back out on that test. But even if you prepared a special enclosure for him with all the natural sunlight, fresh air, and wind he can handle, he'd probably make some excuse about how it's "unnatural" in some way. But I say we do the only thing we really should do: get him the professional psychiatric help he desperately needs before his madness causes someone to die.

Well, if a crazy dude tells you that you can survive by not eating and you are stupid enough to listen to him and then you die, the world is probably better off without you.

So honestly I'm ok with this. I would happily contribute a few bucks to a kickstarter aimed at proving the validity of his claims in a controlled environment though.

I got the Attention Whore flavored Slurpee last time I was at 7-11, it was made from the body fluid residue of Justin Beiber having sex with Madonna!



Well, that does it then. Now *everyone* has had sex with Madonna.

mooseyfate: ElLoco: Bullshiat.

This. Dude is full of shiat. Which it turns out is digested FOOD. Put him to a Randi-dized test for just the two months science says will kill someone, and come get me when they're loading what's left of his emancipated corpse in a body bag.


I'm pretty sure Randi categorically refuses such tests, for just that reason. It's one thing to prove a dowser can't do shiat, and quite another to allow someone to put themselves in mortal danger under your watch.

Oh, I know, I'm familiar with the Randi Foundation's guidelines. I'd still like to see him try.

That doesn't work for the sort of people who believe in this sort of thing.

I know a lot of New Age-type people and if some researchers decided to waste their time doing a lab test to show how ridiculous of a claim it is, people would be claiming the spiritual element of it had been taken away and thus it didn't work.

Years ago James Hydrick was exposed as a fraud on TV.  He claimed to be able to turn the pages of a phone book with psychi powers.  The person who debunked him asked him to do the experiment but with pieces of styrofoam around the phone, just proving that the guy was not blowing on the phone book to turn the pages.  The so-called psychic claimed that the studio lights were heating up the styrofoam thus causing them to generate static electricity which caused the pages to stick together! Hydrick was exposed as a fraud on TV.  He claimed to be able to turn the pages of a phone book with psychi powers.  The person who debunked him asked him to do the experiment but with pieces of styrofoam around the phone, just proving that the guy was not blowing on the phone book to turn the pages.  The so-called psychic claimed that the studio lights were heating up the styrofoam thus causing them to generate static electricity which caused the pages to stick together!

HailRobonia: If humans could photosynthesize like plants, even in an optimal situation in which we had full sun exposure, we'd only get a miniscule amount of our daily energy requirement.


Want to know how I know you're full of it?

Even at 2 hours of full sunlight exposure and assuming a typical conversion rate of about 4-5% (typical for plants) you'd break the 2,000 calorie limit in about 45 minutes.

Hi, I study plants for a living, specifically the interactions of light and life.

And I do it globally.

Sheesh, couldn't you have just done a simple "by the way, I know about this and you are wrong" instead of leaping to calling me full of shiat? It is possible for some of us to be, you know, misinformed instead of lying.

miniflea: There was also some monk who claimed, in addition to never eating, that he didn't have to drink water either.  He did, though, bathe himself in a fashion that appeared to allow him to take several swallows of water.


What about the guys who claim that by muttering the right spells they can turn cheap wine and crackers into the actual blood and body of a bloke who died two thousand years ago, then come up with all sorts of bizarre and contorted explanations of why the stuff can't actually be seen to change in any way?

Some of them also claim to be celibate.
