A 14-YEAR-OLD boy drank gasoline for five years to obtain "energy" - just as his idols "Bumble Bee" or "Optimus Prime" do in "Transformers," the Sichuan-based West China Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

After the boy, in Yibin City, southwest Sichuan Province, had watched the animated TV series, he began to drink gasoline to become a "valiant fighter" like "Optimus Prime," his father told the newspaper.


Quote
"Since my son started to drink gas, his IQ has dropped sharply and now he can't figure out simple addition and subtraction," the father said.

"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."

The worried parents finally took their son to hospital where they were told the boy had a mental disorder and a strong "gasoline dependence."

"The gasoline contains a lot of lead, which can do harm to people's brains. To make thing even worse, the boy is in the physical development stage, and the lead has caused serious damage to his body," Peng Houquan, a doctor from a hospital in Yibin, said.



wouldnt drinking gas kill you? I find this a little hard to believe. so he became stupid? If he was drinking gas Im going to say maybe he was stupid to begin with.

Drinking, I don't know, but there's a guy that worked for me that was Soooo scatterbrained, he could hardly speak in complete sentences, all kinds of weird things where he was highly intelligent in one area, and almost retarded in another. He went camping with some friends and they were huffing gasoline all weekend. They think he passed out with a lungful and his breathing was so shallow he basically starved his brain of oxygen just enough to make him retarded, but not enough to kill him. People don't know how bad inhalants are until they meet someone that had a bad run-in with them.

Crap like that happens up here quite a bit. There's such a culture of being intoxicated, especially out in the bush where people get REAL bored from time to time. There was a group of guys that found a barrel of Methanol (Wood Alcohol) that had washed up on some beach and they started drinking it. They all died, but the question remains: How bored do you have to be to drink something that washed up on the beach?

Oh, I don't know...

I've lived in some pretty dull places.


If I was a drinker, then, who knows, it might seem like a good idea...but then I do get some strange ideas and all of them seem pretty good at the time.

I didn't know they still used leaded gas anywhere.  Also surprising that it was the lead that caused him harm, I would think drinking gas would ruin the kidneys and liver, and probably eat holes in your stomach.

How smart could he have been if he was drinking GASOLINE to imitate a movie with GIANT ROBOTS?!?

I'm really hoping this story's fake...

I wonder if he was a relatively smart kid but did PCP or Salvia and that led him to do that stupid crap. I heard of a guy who was doing PCP and almost killed himself because he was trying to dry out some pot by putting it in the air cleaner of his car with the motor running, only to huff the exhaust pipe thinking he was smoking the pot. Some people react pretty weird to drugs.

Dumbass, everyone knows Transformers are powered by Energon, not gasoline.

I mean relatively. I hallucinate horribly when I take vicoden, and no, not in a fun way.
