-Francesco Lentini had 3 legs but learned to ride a bike and play football, and he was so amazing at all of this that at the age of 8 he went to the US and became a circus performer.

-At the age of 15, Anna Haining Swan was already 6’ 8″ tall and weighed around 220 lb. When she was 25, she fell in love with a circus performer named Martin Bates. He reached 6’ 8″ by the time he turned 14.
-William Milligan was born in 1955 in Florida and had a rare psychological disorder, which made him have 24 full-fledged personalities who were not responsible for each other’s actions.
-Ella Harper was born with recurved knees that bent in the opposite direction to normal knees. The only way she could get around was on all fours.
