September 28, 2006: Man pulls a car with his eyelids
Elspode Thursday Sep 28 12:27 PM
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.

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.

it's a trap!!

That is truly weird.
Trilby Thursday Sep 28 12:57 PM
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.

I'm glad I looked, because the picture wasn't as bad as the image in my head.
Clodfobble Thursday Sep 28 02:58 PM
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.

I never thought I'd say this, but that's just weird.

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?

Maybe it's just my brain refusing to believe my eyes, but are we sure this is real? Something about the perspective and the cable attached to the front of the car is just not right for me. Someone with lots of photoshop expertise please tell me that this is not happening. Please?

'fraid so, astrodex, but if you ignore it......it'll go away. Ain't that wonderful?

That looks like a pickup loaded with people... just to make it a bit more challenging

"Strongman" contests are very popular in the Czech Republic and it is no exception for a man to single-handedly pull a locomotive for several metres. But the show that took place in Klasterec nad Ohri was -in a way- exceptional. Pulling a car for 27 metres is no big deal but pulling it by the strength of your penis alone is a first in this country! 34 year old Karel Marek pulled a Nissan Patrol for 27 metres in the manner just described and appeared to have no problem doing so. He covered the 27 metres in 1 minute six seconds, setting a brand new Czech record in this discipline - and possibly a world record as well. But then nobody's standing in line to try and do better.

"eye" hate to confirm this, but
Photoshop or some image editor, no question. Notice how the light on the guy doesn't match the rest of the photo (even with the shadow past him) and, yes, the perspective, and the edges and the cheese.
Well, three out of four ain't bad.
