I think he still holds World record as human who can wihstand the highest power frequency voltage hand-to-hand(don't know exactly how much it is but it is order of several thousand volts).At least Guinnes book of records says so.In USA he wanted to try an electric chair some 20 years ago but they didn't let him! smile

God Lord,
Is a guy like that on some sort of a death-wish? crazy
That is one record I would never like to even think of holding.

Scientists did some tests on him.All they could find was that he doesn't sweat at all (makes extremely high skin resistance) and when he conducts small currents his tissues behave like condensers.Curious thing that electronic devices tend to mailfunction in his vicinity.Anyway,he is a medical phenomenon.

After watching that hot dog bit, I have to ask; what happens if he grabs your ears?
