Eye-Popping Excellence

In this combination picture of before and after, Claudio Paulo Pinto pops his eyeballs out of their sockets, in Belo Horizonte, 210 miles north of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Claudio Paulo Pinto is looking for work. Pinto can pop his eyeballs at least 7 millimeters (0.3 inches) out of their sockets, a national record for eye-popping according to RankBrasil, an organization modelled after the Guinness Book of World Records that lists Brazilian records. Pinto says he's been doing this since he was nine years old and 'it doesn't hurt a bit.'

Hi John,
I'm glad you put this up on your blog.
I am an Asst. Director in India, and I am looking for someone who can do this very thing,

Can you possibly tell me how to contact Pinto? We'd like to fly him down to India if possible. Please dont contact him yourself though, as things are always changing and I dont want to make him any false promises.

Hope to hear from you soon,
Sachin Pillai
