Game of Thrones Fans: The Mountain Won’t Pick You Up Just Anywhere

Sports Illustrated has an interview with Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the world's second-strongest man, who's now maybe best known for playing the Mountain on Game of Thrones. After talking about bench pressing (he currently benches 507 pounds) and his diet (he currently eats 8,000 calories a day), the 400-pound human gave this word of warning for if you ever see him in public: "People often ask me to pick them up and I often do, but not at airports and such." Don't you dare ask him to pick you up at an airport! You also probably shouldn't ask him to pick you up from an airport, either, because no one like doing that.
