Man Lifts Buckets of Water with Eyelids

Eye ay ay! Wang Xianxiang has a unique way to carry buckets of water: with his eye lids!

The 42-year-old fireworks maker from the central Chinese province of Hunan was photographed last weekend performing his signature trick: Suspending two water buckets with a combined weight of 9 pounds on plastic hangers hooked to his eyelids for a minute.

Wang entertained local migrant workers at a provincial festival near his hometown of Liuyang Saturday.

“When I first started it was extremely painful,” Wang told NBC News about his unique talent, “but after a lot of practice it’s just uncomfortable today.”

Wang, who is married with two children, said he has been doing his eyelid trick for five to six years and started doing it purely out of boredom.

Makes sense to me. Bored=put heavy weights on eyelids.

Hmmmmm, different strokes for different folks. Here in Amurica, I pay $79 for a very tiny jar of eye cream to counter the effects of aging around my eyelids, while somewhere in China a guy is purposely accelerating the process.
