Man claims to live on sunlight and air

A breatharian known as Kirby has claimed to have eaten only seven meals in the last ten months.

The potentially lethal lifestyle choice has been growing in prominence lately despite the dangers of fasting for long periods. On a recent National Geographic show Kirby claims he has been a breatharian for five years, surviving on nothing but air and sunlight. Despite it generally being regarded as impossible for anyone to live without proper sustenance for more than an absolute maximum of two months, Kirby insists he's been managing it for years and even believes that it has made him immortal.

Unsurprisingly however there is no supporting evidence to suggest that a lifestyle such as this is sustainable, it is instead far more likely to make you very ill or worse.

"Kirby has been a breatharian for five years, even though some people have died while attempting a breatharian lifestyle."

What is there to "document"? Of course it is fake, and of course he is not going to allow a sceptic of the James Randi type to take a close look at him. A real documentary would involve debunking, and since that won´t be allowed.... no documentary. That's like saying, just because there is not much documentary about humans controlling body heat, wim hof can't do it. Of course he can, he turns up his body temp with his mind, big deal. For you it might be. Not for tibetan monks doing tummo yoga. Which of course anyone can learn. Just like african shamans can control their heart beat rates and ca... [More]

And then you're surprised to see yogis submerged in water in a meditative state for days and then you wonder why they don't drown lol. Or just because there are not many documentaries... [More]

or light up light bulbs by simply holding them in their hands No one has ever been able to light up a light bulb by simply holding it in their hands. No one can avoid breathing for days. No one can stop their heart and restart it as is claimed here. The breatherians make all kinds of claims that are just as preposterous. The best part is that some people take these claims without a second thought. There is an entire thread about John Chang and the nonexistent chi http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=116478 The last time I looked over at a breatherian website they were...

It makes sense. If a guru can meditate and hold his breath for 15 minutes, and he can raise his temperature 5 to 10 degrees. Then the super guru who can hold his breath for 48 hours should be able to produce fire in his hand and throw it. Probably his hair will go from black to spiky blonde also. From there levitation is just a step to flying like a jet plane. And breaking boards goes to lifting cars and fighting with telephone poles.

This is not what the person claims they are able to do. Uncle Fester of the Addams family was also able to light a bulb by inserting it into his mouth.

It is a often performed trick.
