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 they're 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 I think that it's either the speed bump man or the tears of blood girl.

1 I think Speed Bump dude is fake. But that chick who cries blood tears is pretty unbelievable.

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.

Twisted visions. Dirty lies. No one knows the truth. That lies deep inside. The pain you hide. All day and night. It burns you. Hurts you.  Slowly, Killing you. You hide it best you can. Smile and say it's okay. But really. It's another lie. Another smudge. Inside your mind. You smile though. Keeping hope. But every day. Second by second. It goes away. And at night. There is only despair. Tearing out your hair. You scream at yourself. Why?! Why are you this way?! But when morning comes. You will wash away. All the tears. And all the pain. The lies are dirty. But the truth is dirtier.

I mean your point is fraught with worse problems, but I'm hoping this can be the most relatable.
