Furthest Eyeball Popper
Claudio Paulo is a Brazilian man hoping to find a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for his ability to pop his eyes out of their sockets.
Pinto 48 a former driver, is making a living out of shows where he pops his eyes out. He reckons he can pop both eyes 95% out of their sockets.
The title of "furthest eyeball popper" in the Guinness Book of World Records currently belongs to Kim Goodman of Chicago, who can pop her eyeballs 11 millimeters (0.43 inches) out of her sockets. Pinto said "I can pop my eyes out four centimeters each, it is a gift from God, I feel blessed." that easily puts Pinto close to the record.
Pinto's ability is called "globe luxation." Doctors say it can strain blood vessels and nerves between the eyes and the head and feels unpleasant but usually doesn't cause lasting damage. Doctors also said they have never seen or heard of a person who can pop the eyes as much as Pinto.
Mr. Pinto said: "It is a pretty easy way to make money, and it doesn't hurt a bit."
