2008 Olympic pinhead champion

Dr Wei Sheng wants to commemorate the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. What better way to do that than to stick 2008 decorative needles into your head, hands, chest and neck?

Sheng is celebrating the Olympics by piercing his head with needles that are in the five colors of the Olympic rings. (Which clearly outdoes another man who had the Olympic rings tattooed on his forehead.)

This is not the first time Sheng gained attention for being a pinhead. He set the world's record for this "event" four years ago by sticking himself with 1790 needles.

I am just guessing he doesn't sleep very well.
