ShanghaiDaily.com article reveals that a 14-year old Chinese boy drank gasoline for FIVE YEARS to be like the Transformers, whom he's idolized since he was young. He eventually developed a great drop in IQ points and dependency for gasoline:

"A 14-YEAR-OLD boy drank gasoline for five years to obtain 'energy' - just as his idols 'Bumble Bee' or 'Optimus Prime' do in 'Transformers,' the Sichuan-based West China Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

After the boy, in Yibin City, southwest Sichuan Province, had watched the animated TV series, he began to drink gasoline to become a 'valiant fighter' like 'Optimus Prime,' his father told the newspaper.

'He began to drink gasoline five years ago, when we found he liked smelling lighter fuel,' he said.

The boy's mother owned a grocery stall, selling small goods such as lighters.

In 2004, she often found lighters missing two or three days after she'd bought them. She later found that her son had been stealing them..."

OH COME ON! No ones this stupid. This is a BS story. Drank gasoline for five years, He would have been dead the first time he tried it. I have the entire G1 Transformers on DVD, No Transformer ever drank gasoline. Energon yes, Oil maybe Gasoline, HELL NO!

The characters drank oil in Animated, but he started 5 years ago so it was before that... maybe he just assumed they drank gasoline.

This is just wrong though... I think the parents could have learned about this earlier though, it isn't Transformer's fault.

This is pure BULLSHIT! This story just happened to come out after ROTF made so much money. The parents noticed he liked the smell of gasoline and that lighters were missing for 5 years and they didn't do a damn thing in five years to stop him. BULLSHIT! Just watch as they try to sue someone and get money for this BULLSHIT story.

No, they noticed the lighters were missing & made him stop LONG before the five-year period of his gas drinking was up.

He stole gas in other ways after he stole lighters.

Like I said before. Why is this coming out now? Gasoline, Lighter Fluid, you'll be dead within a week drinking that stuff.

Yikes! How much does anyone want to bet the parents will throw the blame on Hasbro and sue?

Seriously though, parents should be responsible for helping their child etermine fantasy and reality.

I agree with you, Nakobass. I'm ten myself, and heck no, i wouldn't ever be that idiotic!
Nobody said,  - 2009-07-22 17:35:52

This kid is genious! This is just too sick to be true. Why has horrible things been happening to us TransFans this past year? First, problems with G1 Megatron, then the racial comments and now this! If this is true, I don't want to come off sounding mean, but I wouldn't mind punching a hole straight through this kids' skull.
It's just...wrong.
Saberfrost said,  - 2009-07-23 08:37:14
That kid is retarded your stomach can't consume gasoline if you did you would vomit afew moments after you drank it.
Masterforce said,  - 2009-07-23 12:54:59
Yeah, sure, I would like to transform, but nobody is stubid enough to do that. Parent's fault, not Transformers. Kid should be in mental health department.

Today i have read that one little boy in Ohio USA did it again... And he wanted to be like the transformers too... He drank a motor oil. And police promised to transform his parents:-)))) Stupidity has no limits...
