September 28, 2006: Man pulls a car with his eyelids



Lurker/new user chrishill suggests this item from BBC Day in Pics. The official caption:
Quote:
Dong Changsheng, 44, pulls a car for about 10m (30ft) with his lower eyelids in Changchun in Jilin Province, China, one of the stunts he performs with the help of breathing exercises.
With breathing exercises. He does that by breathing a certain way.

Okay.

I hate it when I get so much as a little piece of eyelash in my eye, and this guy has meat hooks in his.

I'm such a pussy.

Name's Dong...Ding Dong that is.

So, how does one begin to desire to attain this "goal." Is there some sort of elite society of eyelid people who gain recognition and monetary advancement?

There was a letter to the editor this morning complaining about a picture of a guy with hooks in his eyes. I had missed it, but suppose this was it.

I'm basically speechless. I got nothing. Picture says it all.

Good picture though. Thanks, chrishill, for submitting it.

That is truly weird.

(That's about all I can say on this subject. Move on to Friday with the cute animal!)

I, too, wonder about the process. Did this come about as a bar bet? Some arcane punishment that he eventually became adept at? A mental illness? Is he just really, really bored? There are a lot of things I would try to excel at before I tried the 'pulling a car with my lower eyelids' thing.

Everybody's got a hook. (get it? Hook? get it?)

I'm glad I looked, because the picture wasn't as bad as the image in my head.

But roll on Friday anyway (ick)

For the record, it actually looks like he's bearing a lot of the weight across his chin and chest. But hooks on your eyelids hurt at any pressure, I'd imagine.

Pulling a car with one's penis was already old news. Go ahead - google it.

Clodfobble is right, he's taking most of the strain with his lower jaw. See how the rings the line attach's to, are resting on the jaw at the corners of the mouth?

This makes everybody squirm because you're calling them hooks. Hooks it the eyes, like snakes on the plane, gets your panties in a bunch because it's just not right. Call them ocular tension devices and all's well.

yay me!

My thought was that if the hooks pulled his eyelinds down far enough they'd actually be resting on the bottom of his eye socket which would be a bit more solid and useful for pulling cars... even so its some feat, i really cant see how breathing exercises alone would allow you to do something like that, his pain threashhold must be insane.
