Etibar Elchyev achieved a world record for sticking 50 metal spoons magnetically to his body.

The 39-year-old kick-boxing trainer was to attempt to balance spoons on his head but instead switched to a new feat involving his unusual ability to stick metal objects to his skin through a form of human magnetism. Elchyev only discovered he had this ability a year ago, it isn't clear why his body is able to magnetically attract objects in the way that it does.

"Abandoning a bid to set Guinness world record for balancing spoons on his face, a 39-year-old Georgian sports coach instead balances 50 on his body in an apparent feat of 'magnetic' attraction."
