And yet another Record of the World… not for the squeamish!!! LOL!

Here is another one for you = Eye-Popping the Furthest!  This one is not for the faint hearted as it is kind of bizarre to look at… what do you think???

Claudio Paulo Pinto is looking to break an eye-popping record. Literally. Pinto can pop his eyeballs out of their sockets at least 7 millimeters (0.3 inches), a national record for eye-popping according to RankBrasil, an organization modeled after the Guinness Book of World Records that lists Brazilian records.

A former driver, Pinto got a job scaring visitors in a commercial haunted house in Belo Horizonte, 210 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. But he recently was laid off, and now he seeks international recognition for his ability.

“I was measured by an opthamologist on television in January. I could pop my eyes out 7 millimeters,” Pinto said by telephone Saturday. “Since then, my capacities have improved over 50 percent.”

That could put Pinto close to the record. The title of “furthest eyeball popper” in the Guinness Book of World Records currently belongs to Kim Goodman of Chicago, who can pop her eyeballs 11 milimeters (0.43 inches) out of her sockets.

Pinto’s ability is called “globe luxation.” Doctors say it can strain blood vessels and nerves between the eyes and the head and feels unpleasant but usually doesn’t cause lasting damage.

Pinto says he’s been luxating his globes since he was 9 years old and “it doesn’t hurt a bit.”

Ms. Kim Goodman, from Chicago, Illinois, is able to pop her eyes out of  her eye sockets by 12 millimeters (0.47 inches), holding the world record for the farthest eyeball protrusion.

Kim  discovered her eyeball popping talent one day when she was hit on the  head with a hockey mask. Her eyeballs popped out much further than usual  and ever since that day she could pop them out on cue, as well as when  she yawns… 

Now wasn’t that eye popping news???

Until next time have a wonderful week, Joe
