36-year-old Zhang Xijiang has the unusual ability of being able to breath through his ears.
"I always felt my ears could breathe like a nose. My neighbours would pay me to perform for them; that's how I earned my allowances during my childhood," he says. Zhang has used his peculiar ability to do everything from smoking a cigarette to inflating bicycle tyres using nothing but his ears.
A man from Xiamen in southern China's Fujian Province is able to blow up balloons and even pump up flattened bicycle tyres using his ears. Zhang Xijiang, 36, says he knew from childhood that he was different from others.

Haha I can't even begin to understand how this man doesn't have ear drum damage.. Large amounts of air escaping from the ear canal, isn't that a huge indication of a ruptured ear drum? I hear ya..

The good news is if he falls asleep in his soup, he won't drown.
