A 42-year-old fireworks maker from China can suspend two water buckets that weigh 9 pounds on plastic hangers hooked to his eyelids-- for a minute.
The man admitted that when he first started, it was extremely painful. But after a lot of practice, now it’s just uncomfortable.
He has been doing his eyelid trick for about six years and started doing it out of boredom. But as he increased the weight on his eyelids, he started to train. He practiced for 30 minutes each morning and two hours at night.
As for his goals with his special skill, he says he can currently hold 4.5 pounds on each eyelid, so he'd like to push that to 11 pounds per eyelid. He's optimistic he could do that by the end of the year.
