    Yeah, article brings up a lot of question. How does he defecate? Is his lower digestive system intact, even?

    But yeah, it`s amazing he still lives. And now walk too. It`s a miracle!

    Has anyone found this article on a legitimate news site? I`m not questioning it so much as just wanting to make sure that it`s legitimate. There wasn`t a lot of info (hence all the questions we`ve seen above about waste, nutrition, etc.). The whole part about sealing his torso with skin from his head doesn`t make sense to me. Why not use skin from the seperated part (assuming it was available during surgery, which, I`m guessing it was)? Lots of questions, not many answers.

    Where does he poop and pee? Is it like a bird cage, where it sort of falls out through a hole or somethings and is stopped by a grate? Hehe, at least he won`t fart anymore. And, like SiblySea-Cow, I have a great fear of midgets. Really, I mean they could come up through your toilet while you`re sleeping and kill you!

    No, his stomach is not gone, the lower half of his body is, AKA legs.

    If his stomach was gone, he would either die, or have to be hooked up to a machine that injected nutrition straight into him, and he would just sit there until he died.

    Okay, while he MAY use a kidney dialysis machine, if you`ve ever seen someone who was on dialysis, you would know he would be bone thin, with no muscle, a lot of bruises, and entry marks from having to use the machine many times weekly.

    Most likely, some of his intestines remained intact, and he has a colostomy bag.

    Its a bit hard for me believe the morons on IAB (most of them probably still living w/mommy & daddy) making fun of this poor man & his horrible misfortune. Shame on them. He is indeed an extremely brave individual to have gone through this awful tragedy & still have the courage & strength to still want to keep on living. Would they also mock the thousands of injured vets coming back from the war the same way? Sadly & probably so. Just my opinion. Thats all...

    I`m imagining he has a colostomy bag...hes probably still got at least some of his intestine intact...and at least a kidney..maybe a transplant...I`m guessing he was more squished in half at the pelvis or something like that. Sex though? probably not ever going to happen...at least not to where he could feel anything.

    I`m assuming he has a bag that he defecates and urinates into. Since his intestines are gone his diet is probably very limited.

    Frankly, these comments are very rude. It`s amazing that he survived. He is clearly a determined and strong man. That he can walk is amazing.

    Dear Americans,
    OK, I know this is IAB and not a political forum, but I can`t hold back...

    Exactly one week ago a video was posted on here where Dick Cheney (back in 1994) explained why not to invade Iraq, and he was right. This should have prompted a national debate among Americans as to the integrity of the whole Bush Administration and how they`ve deceived the public to take us into an illegal, unwinnable "War on Terror" etc etc.

    That post received 43 comments in total.

    At the time of writing, this one has received 75 posts, mostly along the lines of "OMFG! Wot a freak, I wunder how he poos? LOLZ!!!!11!!one!".

    I am officially depressed for the future of America, and the planet.

    Peng Shulin.
    A man whose body was cut in half by a large transport truck.
    Bed-ridden; depressed; hopeless.
    But we can rebuild him...we HAVE the technology!
    We can make him mobile.
    Taller.
    Happier.
    He will be...The Guy Who Survived Getting Cut In Half And Now Can Walk Again!

    The first thing I thought about was the knight with all the severed limbs in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. "It`s Just a Flesh Wound!"

    He doesn`t pee because he can`t. The only organs that I`d assume are still there based on the pictures are the heart, lungs, liver, and maybe a stomach.
