History to linger on

World’s Dirtiest Man’ dies in Iran at the age of 94. Amou Haji, who gained notoriety as the ‘world’s dirtiest man,’ has passed away in Iran at the age of 94. Local media reported that Haji, who lived in a cinder block shack, was covered in soot and had not bathed with water or soap for over 60 years. In 2014, the Tehran Times documented Haji’s peculiar habits, which included consuming roadkill, smoking a pipe filled with animal excrement, and holding the belief that cleanliness would make him ill. However, a few months ago, villagers managed to convince him to wash for the first time.
