A man can lift 22lbs of water using zero but his eyelids.
Song Tao, 43, has been behaving the very considerable and intensely painful-looking stunt on theatre for the last 26 years.
The man, from Dongying in East China’s Shandong Province, has given the act the verbatim name of ‘eyelid bucket-lifting’.
And rather amazingly, he can lift two containers of water weighing 11lbs each, using steel buttons on his eyes.

‘I used to be a dancer,’ Song said. ‘While behaving in Guangxi, we met a teacher [who upheld on the bucket-lifting skill].
‘I slept with the buttons on my eyes for half a year – then we was means to perform on stage.’
Song uses a homemade appliance which is done of two buttons, some string, and two steel hooks.
(Now, intensely nice people need not review any further.)
He squeezes the big buttons under his eyelids – on top of his eyeballs – and attaches the other finish to the fibre of the bucket handles.
To make it transparent that he’s not intrigue by using his hands, he also rises two other buckets in his hands.
Song explains: ‘I have to sterilize the buttons before every opening to forestall an eye infection. we rip up a little bit afterwards, but that’s about it.’
The internal supervision has presented Song with a certificate for his skill, and he is anticipating his performances can accept national-level recognition as an unsubstantial informative asset.
