Syrian boy shows off his “magnetic” stomach

Still Waters

Every superhero has a moment when their special powers becomes clear. For web-slinging Spider-Man, it was after a radioactive arachnid bite. In Zulfikar Ibrahim’s case, he found out his belly doubled as a magnet during dinner.

Hailing from Syria’s port city of Latakia, the young boy has become something of a mini-celebrity for his seemingly strange ability to stick metal objects to his stomach. His grandparents are hoping his apparent condition can be studied abroad to get to the bottom of his mysterious “magnetism.”

I think the russian guy who used to stick stuff to his head had an issue with excessively oily skin.

Magnetize iron pills, take said iron supplement pills over a period of time... Its bound to do something like this I would imagine.

I am not telling anyone to do such a foolhardy thing, Just explaining what could be happening.

they somehow forgot to include the video in which the boy is lying belly down on two chairs, one holding his chest the other his legs, his belly hanging mid-air in the middle, they then lifting a safety pin under his stomach close to his body, which then lifts and flies up and sticks to his skin. then they do this slowly with a needle, the tip barely touching his skin, the rest of the needle hanging down vertically. So where is that video then, Magneto boy?

In this case the family needs money I think. Well cannot blame them.
Whether this is possible due to magnetism otherwise is not answered at all from here.

Complete nonsense. I suppose if you swallowed a very powerful magnet...

Certainly didn't prove anything. Needed close up shots of attaching and removing items. FAKE

Uh, no. It just doesn't work that way after digestion.

I think I could replicate it by eating a melting popcicle with my shirt off.

Flatware sticking?

Yeah, just rub a light, virtually unnoticeable coating of honey on the flatware (or persons body)

Oh yeah, not to mention that a common compass or "phone-app gauss meter" would help establish the truth.
