Remember The German Mutant Superbaby?

There's a kid in Germany--his identity has not been published, because, do I have to spell it out?--who has a genetic mutation that gives him incredible muscle mass and strength. Doctors are following him closely, partly to make sure that his condition isn't life-threatening at some point, and partly because studying his DNA could lead to breakthrough treatments for muscular dystrophy.

Anyway, the kid's existence was made public last year, but this is the first time I've ever seen a photo of him. Here he is at seven months. While you're staring, I gotta go to the gym.
