30 Year Old Adult Baby Under Investigation

30 Year Old Adult Baby Under Investigation

Stanley Thornton is a 30-year-old man who pretends to be a baby. He wears diapers, plays with lego and sleeps in a crib. Featured earlier this month in National Geographic's "Taboo" program, Thornton's 'Adult Baby' lifestyle has been attracting a lot of scrutiny ever since. Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has petitioned the Social Security Administration to launch an investigation into the disability benefits provided to Thornton and his roommate, Sandra Diaz, who pretends to be his mom.

Do you believe the Adult Baby is entitled to receive disability benefits?

I think this is a bizarre story...very weird one. This guy is so different, dumb too maybe but that doesn't entitle him to a "disablity." Why don't they drug test people who ask for public assistance? Wow What is this place coming to? This jackass and his nanny need to Grow up and get a different hobby.
