Magneto: the early years
The boy with the magnetic personality: Six-year-old Croatian strongman can stick metal objects to his body (full article)

In many respects, Ivan Stoiljkovic is much like any other six-year-old boy in his city.

He enjoys kicking a ball around in the garden of the home he shares with his family and is learning to play the accordion as a hobby.

But there are some areas of his magnetic personality where Ivan differs greatly - namely his ability to stick metal objects to his body.

RE: Magneto: the early years
That tickles me in a nice purr-inducing way. If that barrel-boy could in fact generate a magnetic field strong enough to attach a pan to himself, the source of it should lie on his head, not his stomach. The brain in the only proper source of electricity in the human body and still that is not even the 0.1% of what is required. Perhaps he swallowed a giant dynamo. >_>

It is also kinda ridiculous that the attaching process is not videotaped. We see the boy with the forks and the boy without them; and occasionally a screenshot of someone trying to attach something but the scene cuts abruptly.

Also, why doesn't an attraction force that is strong enough to attach a fork on him and stay there motionless, also cause contraction to the skin. Fake belly?

If I wanted to sound funny I would say that the boy ate 12 litters of lentil soup and then stepped on a concealed magnet on the ground.



A similar story that I'm yet to decide on whether it's either fact or hoax is this:

Apparently this can be accomplished because of the overproduction of oils on the boys skin and not magnetic attraction due to electricity. This is something that he will inevitably lose the ability to do as he matures. A simple test would be to try aluminum.

So, basically, this is the effect of an abhorrence towards the use of soap. The more I found out about this boy, the more 'attracted' I feel to him. Heart

This kid is all over our newspapers for the last month or so. Interesting. Some say he has the "Sai Baba gene", whatever that is. And he can make the pain go away with his touch. Maybe I'll go and see him one day, to make sure he is the real deal.

This was the part that originally made me think his 'ability' had to do with magnetism... How the heck can your own stinking grease help another person feel no pain is beyond me. Dodgy

Perhaps he always carries a syringe with anesthetic up his sleeve or something.
