…Pinto, 48 is making a living out of shows where he pops his eyes out, Terra Noticias Populares reports. He reckons he can pop both eyes 95% out of their sockets. Mr Pinto has undergone various tests and doctors say they have never seen or heard of a person who can pop the eyes as much as him.

Mr Pinto, from Belo Horizonte, said: “It is a pretty easy way to make money. I can pop my eyes out four centimetres each, it is a gift from God, I feel blessed.”

Beetlejuice??

Malaysia News Online
tree.JPGKEPALA BATAS: It sounds unbelievable. But it’s true. And thousands of people are making a beeline for the village of Kampung Paya here to see it for themselves.

The trunk of a pinang (betel nut) tree has sprouted a human-like face. The curves on the five-metre high tree clearly resemble human eyes, teeth and a nose. The unexplained phenomenon has resulted in the villagers there naming it the “ghost tree”.

Villager Zainol Nayan, 54, who lives near the tree, said he spotted the curves emerging on the tree about a month ago, but the much clearer human-like face only became obvious last Friday.

“Since then, villagers have gathered around the tree to see for themselves and the news spread like wildfire, attracting outsiders.”

Zainol said the pinang tree grew by itself more than 10 years ago, but there was nothing strange about it until recently.
