15-year-old Calvino Inman, perhaps disappointed with his first 15 years of not resembling any comic book characters, can now take on the mantle of Horned Lizard Man
. Like the lizard, Inman's eyes produce blood
, which runs down his face like horror movie tears at least three times a day.
Doctors have scanned and rescanned the boy, and conducted various tests, but so far there's no way to treat the condition. His parents are hoping to find someone who can give them some hope for treatment which will put an end to the torment Inman receives from his peers.
Across the world in India, 13-year-old Twinkle Dwivedi cries tears of blood but also bleeds from her head
, feet and hands with no apparent signs of any wounds. Twinkle, who already sports a comic book name, has her own National Geographic special airing on September 13
Hopefully someone will hear their stories and be able to offer a solution but in the meantime, we suggest they try to master squirting the blood, which will at least silence the people who make fun of them by making them run in abject terror.
to see Inman and Dwivedi's defective ducts in action.
