Put that sandwich between his ass cheeks, I’m going to give it a running kick!”
Alexis was only 18 years old in 1822 when he was accidentally shot, and became Beaumont’s guinea pig. The experiments continued until Alexis St. Martin was an old 29, in 1833. 29 going on 69, no doubt. He gained some vitality back after the creepy dude stopped fishing for pork rinds in his gut, I’m sure. Ye gods and little fishes.
Also, he wasn’t just stalked, he was trapped. From Alexis’ Wikipedia profile:
Alexis St. Martin allowed the experiments to be conducted, not as an act to repay Beaumont for keeping him alive, but rather because Beaumont had the illiterate St. Martin sign a contract to work as a servant.
