my! what strong eyelids you have

There are some things that would never cross the minds of most people. There are some things that, if we thought of them, we wouldn't actually attempt.

Here is a case-in-point:

This week, Yang Guange, a 35-year-old man from China, performed a stunt that has never before been accomplished:

He pulled a VW sedan for a distance of 5 meters with his eyelids. Yes, his eyelids.

The 98-pound Yang performed the stunt before an admiring crowd at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Guangzou. Ropes were somehow attached to his eyelids and the car's bumper. Then, he pulled.

Yang has been working toward his moment of fame for more than 10 years, apparently doing rigorous eyelid training.

Said Yang, "At the beginning it was a bit painful, but gradually I got used to it... I just want to know what the limit is of the weakest link in the human body."
