World’s Dirtiest Man Gives Whole New Meaning To Natural Living

When it comes to getting in touch with the natural world and forgoing worldly possessions, it’s hard to think of anyone devoting themselves as completely as Haji, an 80-year-old Iranian man who has been given the unfortunate title of “World’s Dirtiest Man.”

As the video below notes, Haji has not bathed in over 60 years and spends his days living in a hole in the ground, drinking water out of a rusted can and smoking a pipe filled with animal feces. While his lifestyle may seem revolting to pretty much anyone else, it’s claimed that he is content with his way of life and that it has helped him stay grounded.

That being said, if you’re looking to get in touch with nature and live a life free of material possessions, it can probably be done just as well while taking the time to have a bath once in awhile.
