Brazil's 'Magnet Boy' To Fight Croatian Mini Magneto In Test Of Steel

No, not really. That chubby six year-old Croation kid is safe sticking frying pans to his stomach...but he does have new comeptition. Enter Paulo David Amorim, an 11 year old who appears to have a similar gift, only he enjoys sticking USB drives, digital cameras and electric shavers to his chest and back.

Brazilian doctors say they're mystified about Paulo's pulling power. However, given that plastic TV remotes and even china plates will stick to the youngster, it's entirely likely he has the same "sticky skin" condition that doctors now believe Croation Ivan Stoiljkovi has.

Still, that's one heck of a party trick. [Daily Telegraph]
