Wim Hof – The Iceman
Tummo is a form of breathing found in Tibetan meditation. The purpose of tummo is to gain control over own body through mental concentration. People with this technique can generate heat throughout their own body.
Dutch daredevil Wim Hof (born 1959) is the first Westerner to learn this ancient meditation technique. While it is known by Tibetan monks for thousands of years. Wim Hof claims that anyone can learn this meditation by doing certain breathing exercises. However, to ordinary people this technique seems supernatural.
Louis Cyr is the type of man you need during an argument. Since his death in 1912 not one man has surpassed or taken his title of the strongest man to ever live. While his strength can be somewhat attributed to his Amazonian mother (she was 6 ft 1) it’s also been said from a young age he worked in a lumber yard. No doubt building muscles most other 12 years didn’t quite have yet. During the height of his fame he wrestled a giant and won, lifted 500 pounds with one finger and back lifted 4,337 pounds. In the end what killed him wasn’t the angry giant but kidney failure.
Nina Kulagina wasn’t your typical housewife. She claimed to be telekinetic, that means she could apparently move objects using only her mind. One of her most famous experiments was when she made the heart of a frog beat faster and then slower, eventually stopping the frog’s heart. While a lot of this is mere speculation since at the time Kulagina was considered one of Soviet Russia’s secret weapons. She even managed to remove the yolk from an egg without ever touching it. Don’t believe me? There are plenty of documentaries on the infamous Russian Super Human.
Isao Machii isn’t your typical ninja. He is said to have abilities beyond a normal Samurai. Not only can he slice a flying BB gun bullet in half with his sword but he can also slice tennis balls, straw mats and pretty much anything else you chuck at him. With apparently heightened hearing and sight, this modern day Samurai is anything but normal. Just like Severinsen Machii has a plethora of Guinness World Records to his name.
