Man attempts record for balancing spoons on his body
A man in the Eastern European country of Georgia has managed to balance 50 spoons on his body with only his natural magnetism. Unlike most people, Etibar Eichyev has an unusually high level of magnetism and is able to attract metal objects to his skin and keep them there.
The kick boxing trainer, who at 39 years of age was actually planning on tackling the record for the most spoons balanced on a person’s face, instead chose to attempt the whole body record. Balancing the 50 spoons on the area around his neck and upper chest, Mr. Eichyev succeeded.
Whether the achievement will actually be recognized as an official record remains to be seen, however. The Georgian’s unique ability was only discovered a year ago and he has been testing his body’s limits every since. Looking to maximize the payout from the publicity, Mr. Eichyev has stated that any further record attempts will not take place any time soon.
