Chinese Man Grows Nails for 15 Years

Li Jianping 43, of Shishi City, Fujian province, has been growing the nails on his left hand for the past 23 years.

“When I was 20, I read a news report saying an Indian man had let the fingernails on his left hand grow to around one meter. Then I made up my mind to surpass him,” he told the Straits City News.

“Before 1992, my nails were broken twice in accidents: once when I was moving things, the second time by a friend. Each time I had to start over.”

Li, a grocery store owner, admitted that the nails were often inconvenient.

“I never go to crowded places. And during sleep, I have to keep my left wrist under my head to prevent the hand from moving.”

His nails are now one meter long in total after 15 years without accidents.

I think it’s safe to assume he never gets any… Those things look like they could easily take an eye out, slice a neck and destroy vital organs, all at the same time.
