He's measuring those shoes in Roman Catholic; they each weigh thirty-one-and-a-half stone in Church Of England.

I love stories like these. Like the Chinese guy that made his own artificial arms, or his own self-walking robots, or health through heavy shoes. Something about old men in small Chinese towns make the mind stronger.

I think there's an Irish folk legend about a pair of iron shoes that won't stop dancing.

Part of me likes the national enquirer side of China that is now being shown to the world.  They are not too different from us, kinda like the south minus the guns.

Kinda what I was thinking.  Have you ever tried to lift 441 pounds with just one leg?  Me neither, but I've tried to lift way less, and I can't do it either...and that asian dude is both old and small.

Just because you don't literally believe in something does not mean you can't respect it.

China is the one that makes the toxic plastic toy your kid is choking on while you neglect them to post on Fark.

Dont listen to this man. Fiber One bars are terrible, especially if you like to have functioning bowels.

Are you kidding? I use Chinese formula to make sure they don't get old enough to play with toys.

Yea, the idea that insoluble fiber is healthy has been getting some criticism latley, kinda hard on the gut lining. Soluble fiber is the way to go.

There is no such thing as 'race'.  So, yes, Irish is a race.

Odd logic. There's no such thing as a god either, so Irish is a god.

What a loon!

That said, I've wondered if weighted shoes might be good for exercise.  I've got heel spurs, and one of the surest ways to get them flared up is to carry something heavy around.  I know traditionally, walking with ankle weights is a decent way to exercise.  I figure if the weight was below the foot, in the sole of the shoe, it wouldn't aggravate my heel  spurs since they wouldn't be carrying any of the weight.

With my luck I'd end up with top of my foot spurts from the extra lifting weight though.
