No, you are not the first person to ask.....why? Maybe because it hadn't been done to this extent before or maybe just because he could. I mean.....most odd things start that way, right? Whatever the reason, Wang Xianxiang decided to showcase his talent of lifting water buckets with his eyelids. The 42-year-old fireworks maker from the central Chinese province of Hunan was photographed last weekend performing his signature trick: Suspending two water buckets with a combined weight of 9 pounds on plastic hangers hooked to his eyelids for a minute. He said when he first started out it was extremely painful, but after a lot of practice it's just 'uncomfortable' now. I have to say if I tried something that I found to be extrememly painful, chances are there would not be a repeat performance. But I guess this is the stuff dreams and breaking records is made of. At least that's what I hear in the movies. I am thinking he will look like Droopy the dog before too long, but whatever make you happy!
