The curious collection of a slightly mad scientist

10-year-old Norwegian boy steals parents’ car and tells police he is a dwarf (+ a 24 year old man who looks 12 years old)

A ten-year-old Norwegian boy who drove his parents’ car into a snowy ditch offered an inventive excuse to police: he was a dwarf who had forgotten his driver’s license.
The boy – who lives near Dokka, a town 110kms (68 miles) north of Oslo – put his 18-month old sister into the car sometime before 6am, while his parents were still sleeping and set off to visit his grandparents in Valdres, about 60 kilometres away.

He drove more than 10 kilometres before veering off the road, where he was found by a snowplow driver who alerted police.

‘The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine,’ said Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland police district.

There is Kallman’s syndrome which delays puberty and development so a 17 year old would probably look like a 12-13 year old.

Kallmann syndrome is a genetic condition where the primary symptom is a failure to start puberty or a failure to fully complete it. It occurs in both males and females and has the additional symptoms of hypogonadism and almost invariably infertility. Kallmann syndrome also features the additional symptom of an altered sense of smell; either totally absent (anosmia) or highly reduced (hyposmia).[1][2] Kallmann syndrome occurs when the hypothalamic neurons that are responsible for releasing gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH neurons) fail to migrate into the hypothalamus during embryonic development.

I don’t speak the language but this person, Mohammad Farooq Abou Al Hassan, is supposedly 24 years old. His voice sounds young, but his vocabulary sounds adult (even though I don’t understand the language.) The video shows him driving.

Sharjah resident Mohammad Farooq Abou Al Hassan on what it takes for an adult to live in a child’s body. Mohammad Farooq Abou Al Hassan, a Jordanian of Palestinian origin, is your average 24-year-old Arab male. The only difference is that he hasn’t aged a day since he was 12 years old.
