In Malaysia, 78 years old Liew Thow Lin is known as the Human Magnet or Mr. Magnet. He can make metal objects, weighing up to 2kg, stick to his skin without any aid and he is a scientific mystery because there is no trace of a magnetic field around his body. Scientists say his skin is also normal and there is no explanation for his unusual talent.
In 2006 he even pulled a 10.6-tonne bus using only his body's "magnetic force". Liew Thow Lin placed a steel contraption under his armpit, hooked it to a chain with the other end tied to the bus. He then pulled the bus for 3.4 meters in less than a minute. "I myself am surprised by my extraordinary ability although I'm already 78 years old" he told reporters.
