Bizarre Stuff - Incredible Human Feats

Crazy stuff! Think you got talent cuz you can do the splits? Think again. Check out these 3 unusually gifted people and decide for yourself if theyre true or not. Know which person is made up?

Think you're special cuz you can touch your toes or do the splits? You obviously haven't met Gumby Man. He's not the only one doing some twisted feats. Tom Owen is a human speed bump and Elaine Sherman bleeds tears. Are these guys for real? You decide.

Human Speed Bump

Tom Owen isn't the kind of guy to stand in your way. He's more likely to let you run him over. In fact, on August 20, 1999 Tom was run over by six pick-up trucks and a box van in Palm Dale, California. Not that he's complaining. Tom has been called the human speed bump and it's something he proudly lives up to. He estimates that he's been run over more than a thousand times. To keep in shape, a buddy stands on Tom's six-pack holding weights as heavy as 453 kg (1000 lb.) Then Tom pushes his friend up and down with his stomach muscles.

Elastic Man

Some people in yoga can make themselves look like pretzels by twisting their arms and legs around. But can they do this: Stand straight with both their feet facing the opposite direction? Or bend their knees so their legs go in front of them instead of behind? What about touch both their ears with their toes at the same time? These are only some of the stances Pierre Beauchemin can do. Pierre is so flexible that doctors told him he would be crippled by the time he was 30. This contortion king has astonished crowds and even doctors all over the world. Known as Mr. Gumby, Pierre holds the record for the most elastic man.

Tears of Blood

Crying is something humans can do that animals can't. Some of us won't admit to crying but everyone cries salt water tears. Everyone, that is, except 21 year-old Elaine Sherman. She cries tears of blood. That's right. When she cries (something she's shy about doing in public) blood runs down her cheeks instead of water. Elaine, who lives in Mexico City, hasn't always cried blood. She started crying tears of blood after the death of her father, three years ago. Doctors still can't explain why.

1 I think the "Human Speed Bump" and the "Elastic Man" is real. But "Tears of Blood" isn't. I don't think anybody would ever cry blood. It's just impossible.

1 Definitely the human speed bump. It's just plain impossible, I don't know how it can be. I've seen elastic people, and I know for a fact people cry blood. I've read about tears of blood in a book.

1 The Tears of Blood is possible. I found out from a science book that people can cry blood when they are faced with extreme emotional experiences. And the loss of the girl's father may have caused her to do so. Jesus did as well when he cried blood at the hill. The elastic man might be possble too but I think the human speed bump is fake. No matter how strong your six packs are, it is totally impossible for your bones to be able to endure such weight without breaking it or retaining some major injuries.

Explanation: Hoshi was best friends with the moon girl, Sina who secretly loved him but they drifted apart when Hoshi met Dimitre, a Russian boy. He hung out with Dimitre more and they both fell in love with each other. However, Sina was jealous and so she got Cira, the sun girl, who was in love with Dimitre to distract him and hang out with him. Dimitre was too kind to reject her so he just hung out with her. In the shadows, Sina was bullying and threatening Hoshi not to meet with Dimitre because if he did she would hurt Dimitre. One day Hoshi couldn't handle it and so he ran to find Dimitre after school. He saw Dimitre and went towards him only to get hit by a car. Dimitre saw Hoshi lying on the floor and rushed towards him and hugged him while Hoshi slowly died in his arms. Dimitre never got over his death after that point.

There once was a boy named Hoshi. Just like his name his smile was as bright as the stars in the sky. One day he met another boy who's eyes were a mixture of the aqua ocean and green land, Earth. His name was Dimitre and he came from a far away land. They fell hard for each other. Their love stronger than anything in the galaxy. The star left the moon's side to join hands with the earth in their journey of love. But a girl carrying a name that meant the moon felt jealous. Jealous of the stars love for the Earth. She wanted to make it so that Hoshi could never meet Dimitre again, and with the help of another girl with her sun-kissed hair, the star could never see the Earth. The sun would blind the Earth so much that he couldn't see Hoshi who would shine brightly with teary eyes, and then when the sun would go to sleep so did the Earth, and only the stars would feel pain. Months went by and Hoshi's heart only broke harder and harder until a plan popped in his brain. The star, lost and all alone, cut off the wings that allowed him to shine and he fell out of the sky with hot fiery pain. Dimitre saw Hoshi in his hurt and painful state and embraced him. They could finally be together. Only for a brief moment, until Hoshi could feel himself slip into a deep sleep wrapped in Dimitre's arms. The star had gone out, and had left a gaping hole in the Earth's heart that could never be filled.

I appreciate it, but that doesn't help my conscience.  To me, you're practically saying "if one of us dies, that's okay because there are still plenty of other humans all around the world".  I don't put other animals above us, of course, but they still exist.  Anyway, good day.  Enjoy this egg's before  [s:p/1n9v] and after  [s:p/1n7e] because I'm not sure how to say "good day" without sounding sarcastic.
