It’s no secret when forced into extreme circumstances the human body can do incredible things. But when circumstances are normal and people push their bodies, we call them crazy. Secretly though, we wonder if we can do those same things. Then we remember how much more relaxing it is to sit on the couch and watch TV, read a book, or go online and see these insane feats of strength and endurance. After all, you don’t want to stay awake for 80 straight hours to run 350 miles!
This Bus Is No Match For Hair

This mild-mannered gentleman seems perfectly average until you see him pull a double-decker with his hair! Manjit Singh set the Guinness World Record in 2009 on the streets of London. Attached the head of the bus to his hair, Singh pulled the seven-ton behemoth 69.5 feet.
Asked how he pulled off the feat, the 59-year-old said, “It was painful, but it was worth it. I could only think about my legs and head and keeping on going.” To prepare for the event, Singh claims there was no training and no steroids in his shampoo. His power comes from his four kids, who think their dad is a real hero now!
