Well, it sounded like a good idea at first.

The muscles of a 25 year old bodybuilder in Brazil turned into rocks in his bone-headed attempt to look like the Incredible Hulk.

Oh he looks incredible alright.

The man was addicted to shooting synthol into his arms. Synthol is an enhancement oil that artificially produce the appearance of muscle mass. The one downside -- they virtually turn the muscles to a rock-like consistency -- and not like the Dwayne Johnson "Rock".

It got to the point where he couldn’t inject his arms with normal sized needles -- they just wouldn't work. So, what to do? He began using high-gauge needles that are used on bulls, yes BULLS, to avoid the rocks in his arms. Where do you get high-gauge bull needles anyway?

He nearly had to have both of his arms amputated. Kind of a bummer.

So he did what any sensible, level headed person would do, he decided to quit using synthol. Pretty good idea if you ask me, but he still dreams of becoming a bodybuilder.
