Imagine that you are one of a pair of twins, born into a noble family, in a French chateau.
You are good-looking, intelligent, popular, and healthy; then something goes on inside your head, and you decide to change your physical appearance, not for the better but for the bizarre. Although it has to be said that they both deny having undergone any plastic surgery.
From having looked as you were above, you later become as below. That is the story of the Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff brothers.
Sadly, they were also committed anti-vaxxers, who both died of Covid within a week of each other earlier this month
I cannot pretend to understand anything at all about people's obsessive decisions to change their looks or physique by the 'knife'. Of course, theirs were their own decisions, and as such must be respected, but I can't help wondering if, on their death beds, they didn't wonder if it had been unwise.
Please don't think this is just criticism; it's not. It's just that I totally fail to understand fellow male human beings, only a few years younger than myself, thinking the way they did! They had everything most people dream of. Maybe you can enlighten me.
