The complete lack of any urine output does rather suggest it. Intriguing.

I call bullshit. Only an idiot would believe that.
Whilst I'm inclined to agree with you, the test was carefully monitored and would suggest something unusual!
The test was over a 2 week period. This guy is claiming to have not eaten or drank for 70 years. 2 weeks, I can believe. 70 years? Bollocks.

What a croc of sh!te.

I 'spose he doesn't sweat either, and that his pores are completely sealed, or that there's no evaporation from his gob, eyes and hoofing gurt nose?

How does he replace moisture lost through evaporation? Osmosis?

There are instance of people who don't sweat, an old friend of mine didn't but it did lead to other problems, IIRC blood pressure being the big one

As I say, I'm inclined to agree but surely even 2 weeks should have a pronounced effect on him?

My grandfather hasn't eaten, drunk or urinated for almost 70 years.
He was killed at Tobruk.

That's as may be, but he's not a cactus. He will most definately lose moisture through various orifices and pores. If it's not replaced, he'll become desecated, or mumified for want of a better term. Not only this, but all bodies need not only hydration, but 'flushing' too, to wash out or expunge the waste products created by merely being alive.

Like I said - it's a croc of sh!te.

Not eating or drinking for 2 weeks, while uncomfortable, is not impossible.

Not passing any urine at all while maintaining some semblance of homeostasis ought to be. However, he managed it.

2 weeks of complete anuria is theoretically a medical disaster - it generally means your kidneys are completely fucked and you are about to become very ill very quickly. This chap, however, seems well.

I'm sceptical as well. But I'm very interested to find out exactly what IS going on.

This Indian fella is a paid lackey of Mandlebum, he's diverted your attention whilst the Lib/Lab pact forms in the background.
Its all smoke and mirrors.
