Is this the same guy that Indigo Child is talking about on another thread?

Yes. It appears the administrator doesn't follow along very closely in his own forum. :-)

Then it also appears that this man is aging in 'dog years'. It was reported last week that he had been doing this for 65 years. Now it's 70.

Give it another couple days and it'll be 75... ;-)

Actually Ninja, I think he claimed all along it was 70. I was going to say something earlier, but whether it was 7 weeks, 7 years, or 70 years, successful results would be equally astonishing.

I see where my confusion came in here. The original title of the other thread is:
65years without a meal nor a drink

A misquote by ciscop

The original article has a blurb under this man's picture:
Indian patient Prahlad Jani claims he has survived without food and water for more than seven decades

So that is actually MORE than 70 years.

And a quote from Indigo Child:
The 65 year old man certainly looks old, but apparently the biological indicators suggest a very healthy man.
His brain is said to be comparable to a 25 year old, his heart rate is comparable to that of a young athlete and
apparently he can walk for miles on end and not get tired. Impressive.

Must also be incorrect.

No wonder I am confused.

I think you'll find that if you read this forum from the first post all the way through to the last, you'll find more than a couple errors... ;-)

Here is another clip about him on Discovery Channel.

Two threads about the same hoax. Seems like someone is spending too much time as wwu777.

Alright well since the other thread about this is more active, let's just continue this conversation there.
