That's not magnetism; it's gravity at work.

It's a scam.

Nah, it looks legit. Besides, you ever hear of a scam involving forks? Unheard of.

Any evidence this works after a thorough bathing?
 
2011-05-11 09:47:36 PM  
There was another story here about a magnetic Serbian kid a while back

/people must have too much iron in their diets in that part of the world
//or they need to bathe more often

that's the first thing I was thinking after they did an article a few months ago on how they debunked this sort of thing completely.

In that pic, he could be holding the pan via a handle in his teeth.

Oh, and there's this.

Can you imagine having someone like this in your family?

I have one of those "my body's magnetic field kills electronics" people in mine, and I have a hard time handling it.

Imagine having Chunks Magneto Hands going around at the family bbq with BS stories about healing people.

Actually, if he does have a screwed up magnetic field, it would explain the healing thing, since a lot of old folklore says magnets sooth certain aches and pains.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and congratulate you on a brilliant troll.

This fat sticky kid was 'news' a few months ago when this story broke the last time. Too lazy to look up the link, but this kid is not just pete, but repeat, and still fat, and clearly still sticky.

Next BBQ, bring a compass and put it down on the table. Ask Mr. Magneto Hands to make the needle move with his body's magnetic field. One of you will get to say "told you so" and the other will get to STFU about it from that day onward.

As expected, the reaction of most people has been positive and negative.

He is a fat boy whose skin produces copious amounts of grease. io9 did a debunking article on this a few months ago. If I worked out for an hour or so after eating at a cracker barrel I could manifest the same abilities.

You managed to find it in their shiatstorm of a gawker-asset webpage? Holy hell, did you have to break down and use the J and K letters to scroll up and down, or did the planets align with the back of a blue whale's ass?

If she isn't really hot and rich, you should run. Run away. Now. Don't pack. Don't explain, just run.

I think this was before they did the site redesign. Main reason I didn't link to it was because I didn't feel like wading through that horrorshow of a website. Also, I've not been there recently as I've realized that the vast majority of the articles are masturbatory schlock that aren't as good as the papers I'd shiat out for my college lit classes ten minutes before they were due.

Why can't we see his mouth in that picture? Wouldn't you want to not cast doubt that he has something in his mouth holding that shiat up?

There is always one kid who feels they have to retell the joke in a way the stupid kids will understand.

Years ago, in high school, I knew a guy who could not wear a watch. Any watch. It would stop instantly when he put one on his wrist. Not sure whether it hd anything to do with it, but he was a grand mal epileptic.

This was, oh idunno, in the 60s sometime, when those red LED digital watches were the new techie rage. This guy would put one on and it would just DIE. I thought it was a trick, so I put one on his wrist myself, without him touching the watch with his hands. AS soon as the strap was fastened the watch died. Same thing with mechanical analog watches. I could put one on his wrist without him touching it. It would stop.

He could also stop wall clocks and pendulum clocks simply by touching them.

Everything would start again when not in contact with his body.

Absolutely true story. One reason, I guess, why I've always been open to "alternative" explanations of shiat.
