Orang-orang ini dikenal karena memiliki kebiasaan aneh ataupun kejadian unik yang dialaminya. Mulai dari orang yang tidak pernah tidur selama 30 tahun lebih! Ada pula pria yang punya kebiasaan aneh, yakni memakan benda-benda yang secara normal tak bisa dicerna tubuh manusia. Misalnya, sepeda, televisi, hingga pesawat Cessna 150. Astaga!

Berikut 6 pria paling aneh di muka bumi seperti dirangkum dari dari berbagai sumber:

1. Thai Ngoc, tidak tidur 30 tahun lebih

Pria Vietnam ini tak bisa tidur sejak menderita demam pada tahun 1973. Menurut media Vietnam, Thanh Nien, dia mengklaim tak pernah tidur selama 33 tahun. Selama itu, Thai Ngoc atau Hai Ngoc yang dilahirkan tahun 1942 ini menggunakan 'waktu luangnya' di malam hari untuk mengurusi lahan pertaniannya atau ronda menjaga lahannya dari pencuri. Ngoc memiliki lahan pertanian seluas 5 hektar yang terletak di wilayah kaki gunung di Que Trung, distrik Que Son, Thailand. Sehari-hari Ngoc sibuk bertani dan mengurusi hewan-hewan ternaknya, seperti ayam dan babi.

Anehnya, kesehatan Ngoc tidak terpengaruh dengan kebiasaan tidak bisa tidur tersebut. Sang istri pernah membawa Ngoc untuk memeriksakan kesehatannya dan dokter menyatakan, secara keseluruhan kondisi Ngoc sehat. Kecuali, ada sedikit masalah pada fungsi hatinya, namun tidak serius.

"Saya tidak tahu apakah insomnia yang saya alami mempengaruhi kesehatan saya atau tidak. Tapi saya merasa tetap sehat dan bisa bertani seperti yang lainnya," ucap Ngoc. Pria itu bahkan mengaku setiap harinya masih mampu membawa 50 kg karung pupuk sembari berjalan turun gunung sejauh 4 km.

2. Michel Lotito, pria pemakan segala

Michel Lotito yang lahir pada 15 Juni 1950 adalah seorang entertainer. Di Prancis, dia dikenal sebagai Monsieur Mangetout (Mister Eat-it-all) alias 'Pria Pemakan Segala'. Dalam atraksinya, Lotito gemar memakan benda-benda yang secara normal tak bisa dicerna tubuh manusia, seperti logam, kaca, karet. Bahkan juga benda-benda lain seperti sepeda, televisi, hingga pesawat Cessna 150. Benda-benda tersebut terlebih dahulu dibongkar dan dipotong-potong menjadi bagian yang lebih kecil, baru kemudian dimakannya. Lotito diketahui pernah memakan badan pesawat selama 2 tahun, dari 1978-1980

. Kebiasaan makan benda-benda tak lazim ini dilakukan Lotito sejak kecil dan mulai dipamerkan ke publik pada tahun 1966 silam. Meskipun kerap memakan benda-benda aneh, kondisi tubuh dan kesehatan Lotito seolah tak terpengaruh. Dia sama sekali tidak mengalami sakit apapun meskipun telah memakan benda-benda yang mengandung racun.

Ketika memakan berkilo-kilo logam atau benda aneh lainnya, Lotito dibantu dengan minyak mineral atau air dalam jumlah banyak untuk membantu pencernaannya. Menurut pemeriksaan medis, Lotito dinyatakan memiliki perut dan usus dengan ketebalan dua kali lipat dari ukuran normal. Selain itu, asam pencernaan yang ada di dalam lambungnya diperkirakan memiliki kekuatan luar biasa sehingga mampu mencerna benda-benda logam yang dia makan. Luar biasa!

3. Matayoshi Mitsuo, mengaku sebagai Yesus Kristus Politikus eksentrik Jepang ini mengaku dirinya adalah Yesus Kristus. Menurut visi Matayoshi, pria ini mengklaim akan melakukan penghakiman terakhir sebagai Kristus namun dengan cara yang benar-benar sesuai dengan sistem politik saat ini.

Matayoshi menuturkan, langkah pertama yang harus dijalaninya sebagai Juruselamat adalah dengan terpilih menjadi Perdana Menteri Jepang. Kemudian dia akan mereformasi masyarakat Jepang. Tidak hanya itu, Matayoshi juga meminta PBB untuk memberikannya posisi terhormat sebagai Sekretaris Jenderal PBB. Dengan demikian, Matayoshi akan bisa memerintah seluruh dunia dengan dua jabatan legal tersebut, tidak hanya secara agama tapi juga secara politik.

Matayoshi telah berulang kali ikut serta dalam pemilihan umum di Jepang, namun tidak pernah berhasil menang. Dia dikenal karena kampanyenya yang eksentrik -dia pernah menyerukan para rival politiknya untuk bunuh diri dengan melakukan harakiri.

4. Shoichi Yokoi, 28 tahun sembunyi di gua usai PD II

Yokoi tadinya seorang tentara yang tergabung dalam wajib militer di Tentara Kerajaan Jepang pada tahun 1941 silam dan tak lama kemudian dikirim ke Guam. Pada tahun 1944, ketika pasukan Amerika Serikat menduduki Guam, Yokoi memilih bersembunyi.

Hingga akhirnya pada 24 Januari 1972, Yokoi ditemukan di sebuah daerah terpencil di Guam oleh dua warga pulau tersebut. Selama 28 tahun, pria itu hidup bersembunyi di dalam gua bawah tanah di tengah hutan. Yokoi terlalu takut untuk keluar, bahkan setelah dia menemukan selebaran yang isinya menyebutkan bahwa Perang Dunia II telah berakhir.

Yokoi akhirnya dipulangkan ke Jepang sembari membawa senapannya yang telah berkarat.

5. Sanju Bhagat, 'mengandung' saudara kembarnya di dalam perut

Pria asal India ini memiliki kondisi perut yang tidak wajar, yakni membengkak seperti sedang hamil 9 bulan. Bhagat yang tinggal di Nagpur, India ini sering merasa sesak nafas karena kondisinya itu.

Sampai akhirnya pada suatu malam di bulan Juni 1999, Bhagat menjalani operasi di rumah sakit. Isi perut Bhagat yang awalnya diduga tumor ganas, ternyata merupakan sesuatu yang tak diduga sama sekali. Saat dioperasi, dokter menemukan sejumlah bagian tubuh manusia di bagian dalam perut Bhagat. Bagian-bagian tubuh tersebut ternyata milik saudara kembar Bhagat yang terjebak di dalam perutnya sejak lahir.

Dokter menyatakan, Bhagat mengalami kondisi medis teraneh di dunia, yakni janin di dalam janin lainnya. Sangat jarang terjadi bahwa sebuah janin bisa terjebak di dalam janin kembarannya sendiri. Menariknya, janin yang terjebak ini mampu bertahan hidup sebagai parasit dan menyerap darah dan makanan dari tubuh Bhagat, hingga dia bertambah besar dan mulai menyakiti tubuh Bhagat.

6. Mehran Karimi Nasseri, hidup di bandara sejak 1988

Pria yang juga dikenal sebagai Sir, Alfred Mehran ini merupakan seorang pengungsi asal Iran yang tinggal di Bandara Charles de Gaulle, Prancis sejak Agustus 8 Agustus 1988. Mehran tinggal di ruang tunggu keberangkatan di Terminal Satu bandara internasional di Paris itu selama bertahun-tahun karena tak memiliki dokumen.

Kisah Mehran ini dimulai ketika dia dipenjara dan dianiaya di Iran, kemudian dibuang keluar negeri. Mehran lalu berusaha mendapatkan suaka ke sejumlah negara di Eropa, tapi usahanya tidak membuahkan hasil.

Saat mencoba pergi ke Inggris, Mehran mengklaim bahwa dirinya dirampok dan tasnya dicuri orang saat akan berangkat menuju Bandara Charles de Gaulle untuk terbang ke Inggris. Dia pun berhasil naik ke pesawat dan terbang ke Inggris. Tapi setibanya di Bandara Heathrow di London, Inggris, Mehran yang tidak membawa dokumen-dokumen yang diperlukan, diterbangkan kembali ke Bandara Charles de Gaulle.

Kepada otoritas Prancis, Mehran tak bisa menunjukkan identitas maupun dokumen-dokumen yang membuktikan dirinya sebagai seorang pengungsi. Dia pun dipindahkan ke zona tunggu, sebuah tempat 'penahanan' bagi pelancong tanpa dokumen.

Kisah Mehran ini konon menjadi inspirasi bagi film 'The Terminal' keluaran tahun 2004, yang dibintangi oleh aktor Hollywood, Tom Hanks. Namun tidak seperti karakter yang diperankan Hanks dalam film tersebut yang tinggal di area transit bandara, Mehran justru tinggal di area keberangkatan, juga di dekat butik-butik dan restoran yang berada di lantai dasar.

Selama tinggal di bandara, Mehran terlihat jarang berkomunikasi dengan orang lain. Dengan membawa-bawa kereta dorong dan tasnya, Mehran tampak seperti pelancong biasa, tanpa ada yang menyadari bahwa dia sebenarnya adalah gelandangan.

Pria Aneh Di Dunia

Over the last five years or so, it seemed there was little that Dean G. Skelos, the majority leader of the New York Senate, would not do for his son.

He pressed a powerful real estate executive to provide commissions to his son, a 32-year-old title insurance salesman, according to a federal criminal complaint. He helped get him a job at an environmental company and employed his influence to help the company get government work. He used his office to push natural gas drilling regulations that would have increased his son’s commissions.

He even tried to direct part of a $5.4 billion state budget windfall to fund government contracts that the company was seeking. And when the company was close to securing a storm-water contract from Nassau County, the senator, through an intermediary, pressured the company to pay his son more — or risk having the senator subvert the bid.

The criminal complaint, unsealed on Monday, lays out corruption charges against Senator Skelos and his son, Adam B. Skelos, the latest scandal to seize Albany, and potentially alter its power structure.

The repeated and diverse efforts by Senator Skelos, a Long Island Republican, to use what prosecutors said was his political influence to find work, or at least income, for his son could send both men to federal prison. If they are convicted of all six charges against them, they face up to 20 years in prison for each of four of the six counts and up to 10 years for the remaining two.

Senator Kenneth P. LaValle, of Long Island, who serves as chairman of the Republican conference, emerged from a closed-door meeting Monday night to say that conference members agreed that Mr. Skelos should be benefited the “presumption of innocence,” and would stay in his leadership role.

“The leader has indicated he would like to remain as leader,” said Mr. LaValle, “and he has the support of the conference.” The case against Mr. Skelos and his son grew out of a broader inquiry into political corruption by the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, that has already changed the face of the state capital. It is based in part, according to the six-count complaint, on conversations secretly recorded by one of two cooperating witnesses, and wiretaps on the cellphones of the senator and his son. Those recordings revealed that both men were concerned about electronic surveillance, and illustrated the son’s unsuccessful efforts to thwart it.

Adam Skelos took to using a “burner” phone, the complaint says, and told his father he wanted them to speak through a FaceTime video call in an apparent effort to avoid detection. They also used coded language at times.

At one point, Adam Skelos was recorded telling a Senate staff member of his frustration in not being able to speak openly to his father on the phone, noting that he could not “just send smoke signals or a little pigeon” carrying a message.

The 43-page complaint, sworn out by Paul M. Takla, a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, outlines a five-year scheme to “monetize” the senator’s official position; it also lays bare the extent to which a father sought to use his position to help his son.

The charges accuse the two men of extorting payments through a real estate developer, Glenwood Management, based on Long Island, and the environmental company, AbTech Industries, in Scottsdale, Ariz., with the expectation that the money paid to Adam Skelos — nearly $220,000 in total — would influence his father’s actions.

Glenwood, one of the state’s most prolific campaign donors, had ties to AbTech through investments in the environmental firm’s parent company by Glenwood’s founding family and a senior executive.

The accusations in the complaint portray Senator Skelos as a man who, when it came to his son, was not shy about twisting arms, even in situations that might give other arm-twisters pause.

Seeking to help his son, Senator Skelos turned to the executive at Glenwood, which develops rental apartments in New York City and has much at stake when it comes to real estate legislation in Albany. The senator urged him to direct business to his son, who sold title insurance.

After much prodding, the executive, Charles C. Dorego, engineered a $20,000 payment to Adam Skelos from a title insurance company even though he did no work for the money. But far more lucrative was a consultant position that Mr. Dorego arranged for Adam Skelos at AbTech, which seeks government contracts to treat storm water. (Mr. Dorego is not identified by name in the complaint, but referred to only as CW-1, for Cooperating Witness 1.)

Senator Skelos appeared to take an active interest in his son’s new line of work. Adam Skelos sent him several drafts of his consulting agreement with AbTech, the complaint says, as well as the final deal that was struck.

“Mazel tov,” his father replied.

Senator Skelos sent relevant news articles to his son, including one about a sewage leak near Albany. When AbTech wanted to seek government contracts after Hurricane Sandy, the senator got on a conference call with his son and an AbTech executive, Bjornulf White, and offered advice. (Like Mr. Dorego, Mr. White is not named in the complaint, but referred to as CW-2.)

The assistance paid off: With the senator’s help, AbTech secured a contract worth up to $12 million from Nassau County, a big break for a struggling small business.

But the money was slow to materialize. The senator expressed impatience with county officials.

Adam Skelos, in a phone call with Mr. White in late December, suggested that his father would seek to punish the county. “I tell you this, the state is not going to do a [expletive] thing for the county,” he said.

Three days later, Senator Skelos pressed his case with the Nassau County executive, Edward P. Mangano, a fellow Republican. “Somebody feels like they’re just getting jerked around the last two years,” the senator said, referring to his son in what the complaint described as “coded language.”

The next day, the senator pursued the matter, as he and Mr. Mangano attended a wake for a slain New York City police officer. Senator Skelos then reassured his son, who called him while he was still at the wake. “All claims that are in will be taken care of,” the senator said.

AbTech’s fortunes appeared to weigh on his son. At one point in January, Adam Skelos told his father that if the company did not succeed, he would “lose the ability to pay for things.”

Making matters worse, in recent months, Senator Skelos and his son appeared to grow wary about who was watching them. In addition to making calls on the burner phone, Adam Skelos said he used the FaceTime video calling “because that doesn’t show up on the phone bill,” as he told Mr. White.

In late February, Adam Skelos arranged a pair of meetings between Mr. White and state senators; AbTech needed to win state legislation that would allow its contract to move beyond its initial stages. But Senator Skelos deemed the plan too risky and caused one of the meetings to be canceled.

In another recorded call, Adam Skelos, promising to be “very, very vague” on the phone, urged his father to allow the meeting. The senator offered a warning. “Right now we are in dangerous times, Adam,” he told him.

A month later, in another phone call that was recorded by the authorities, Adam Skelos complained that his father could not give him “real advice” about AbTech while the two men were speaking over the telephone.

“You can’t talk normally,” he told his father, “because it’s like [expletive] Preet Bharara is listening to every [expletive] phone call. It’s just [expletive] frustrating.”

“It is,” his father agreed.
