More than that, he pulled the car 20 metres!
With his ears!
The 38-year-old drew a big crowd while pulling the car in Dehui, Jinli.The onlookers were astonished by the man's performance.
Zhang says he started learning the stunt when he was only 8 years old.
Another amazing thing Zhang can do is pick up a 25 kg bicycle with his mouth while, of course, standing on eggs.
What can you do while standing on eggs?
Mr. Seaton is suing for “loss of service, love and affection.” The Seatons also are seeking unspecified punitive damages from Patterson and the medical practice, Commonwealth Urology.
The Seaton’s attorney, Kevin George, who specializes in penile malpractice, said the doctor’s post-surgical notes show the doctor thought he detected cancer and removed the penis.
“It was not an emergency,” said George. “It didn’t have to happen that way. Clearly, a man's penis can be handled in many ways, but this was extreme.”
The lawsuit filed earlier this month in state court claims Patterson removed Seaton’s penis without consulting either Phillip or Deborah Seaton, or giving them an opportunity to seek a second opinion. Dr. Patterson refutes this, saying, "In addition to detecting cancer, I opined to Mrs. Seaton that the penis size was such that it rendered the penis non-functional."
The couple also sued the anesthesiologist, Dr. Oliver James of Shelbyville, claiming he used a general anesthesia even though Seaton asked that it not be administered. Dr James was unable to respond.

We can only hope the remaining debates will be as entertaining as this one!

Prosecutors said Ryan Mueller, 30, broke into a Wilson, Wis., home and took $20 from the piggy bank of a sleeping 2-year-old girl.
Mueller was linked to the scene of the crime by blood found at the home, investigators said. His prison sentence will be followed by an additional six years for an unrelated robbery, authorities said.
According to Mueller's attorney's, Mueller was wronfully discharged from his job as the Wisconsin Tooth Fairy after it was discovered the girl's tooth was extracted by a dentist, and, therefore, does not fall under the purview of the Tooth Fairy, according to union agreements with State and Federal representatives.
"Such a circumstance is not covered under the contract for the American Federation of State and Federal Mythological Beings (AFSFMB)," noted a union representative. "We are certain the 2-year old girl was aware of this, and was merely trying to save for a Play Station."
The 2-year old girl had no comment.

And there's no Steinbeck alive to write about it, either.“The American people are concerned about the situation in our financial markets and our economy,” Bush said. "
And I share their concerns. I have money invested as well, you know. I feel your pain. Today, we are all Steinbecks.”
In brief formal remarks outside the Oval Office, Bush sought to show that the administration is moving swiftly and aggressively by taking “extraordinary measures.” Even superhuman measures, such as
- taking over mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
- rescuing American International Group Inc. from bankruptcy by granting an emergency $85 billion loan that gives the government an 80 percent stake in the company
- convincing the Securities and Exchange Commission to tighten rules on short selling, the practice of betting that a stock will fall
- pumping $55 billion in temporary reserves into the markets after coordinated action with the central banks of other nations
The president plans to meet with Treasury Secretary Henry "Pat" Paulson Thursday and stay in regular touch with other economic advisers. The White House gave no other detail of how Bush is spending the day - just a meet and greet, beer, chips, and talk of the trickle down economics.
What Bush called “serious challenges” facing the markets have placed the White House in crisis mode - a mode the White House has mastered over Bush's two terms.

After meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other senior government officials, Gates said at a news conference, "As I told them, I offer all Afghans my sincere condolences and personal regret for the recent loss of innocent life as a result of coalition airstrikes. Past losses are bridge under the water. But, today, we are all Afgans."
Gates said the U.S. military takes extraordinary precautions to avoid civilian casualties. "We even have radar!" But added, "It is clear that we have to work even harder. Re-train our troops. Build better coalitions. We have to retool our radar systems and broaden our range." He told Afghan officials that he would be discussing the issue with American commanders and pilots on Wednesday, then winked at the cameras.

A campaign-issued timeline said McCain initially met Palin in February, then held ONE phone conversation with her last week before inviting her to Arizona, where he met with her a SECOND time and offered her the job Thursday. That's oneth by phone, twoeth by land!!! (None by sea.)
- Do you sleep nude or in pajamas?
- Do you fantasize about older men?
- Much older men?
- Vietnam POWs?
Early on, the public search unearthed details of the investigation by the Republican-controlled legislature into the possibility that Palin ordered the dismissal of Alaska's public safety commissioner because he would not fire her former brother-in-law as a state trooper.

Her performance has drawn a half-million views so far on YouTube.
The 23-year-old Michigan State University graduate and science writer raps about the Large Hadron Collider, the groundbreaking particle accelerator that has been built in a 17-mile circular tunnel at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland.
McAlpine raps that when the collider goes into operation on Sept. 10, "the things that it discovers will rock you in the head" - a reference to amazement and awe at what science has accomplished and will accomplish.
The $3.8 billion machine will collide two beams of protons moving at close to the speed of light so scientists can see what particles appear in the resulting debris.
"Rap and physics are culturally miles apart," McAlpine, a science writer at CERN, wrote to the Lansing State Journal in an e-mail last week, "and I find it amusing to try and throw them together."
Others, including physicists, also find it amusing.
"We love the rap, and the science is spot on," said CERN spokesman James Gillies.
McAlpine received permission to film herself and friends dancing in the caverns and tunnels where the experiments will take place.
"I have to confess that I was skeptical when Katie said she wanted to do this, but when I saw her previous science rapping and the lyrics, I was convinced," Gillies said. "I think you'll find pretty close to unanimity among physicists that it's great."
McAlpine honed her physics rapping skills at Michigan State's National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, where she was part of a student research program two years ago.
