Knowledge is never bad--it makes unexplained mysteries even more mysterious.

This video, however, does not depict one of those...

I`m with Fatninja01...

But it`s not even eating lead. Its just placing it in your mouth and spitting it out. Same exact thing as placing ice in your mouth and spitting out water.

I`m not saying that it is not impressive, but its not really eating lead.

And wtf about the lead poisoning?

To comment on the rest

Breaking a relatively thin piece of PLASTER (which is brittle--you can see the small crumbs) is not difficult under this setup. This is NOT concrete, which would contain aggregate (stones), as well as plaster and sand. It`s so wide that the supports act as a fulcrum, and the slab itself becomes a lever ("with a sufficiently large lever, I could move the world"--Archimedes). With the padding, anybody could break the thing with his head, hand, etc.

Hammering a nail into a piece of PINE with your hand using a piece of HARDWOOD (and your other hand as a fulcrum) would be just as easy. Pulling it back out with your teeth (protected by whatever is hidden in the cloth) is a little more difficult, but it is just a piece of PINE (if you don`t know, one of the softer woods that exists).

Next, show me the guy who has a large "rock" busted on his chest with a sledgehammer, while lying on a bed of nails, and I`ll explain that too.

This week`s lesson from I-A-B:

Asia is hardcore, from the children to Mount Dobong, you don`t want to underestimate them.

One last comment on human heat experience--the kiln my brother and I walked into actually had a dry bulb temp of 170F and wet bulb temp of 120F (he finally called me back).

This gives a dewpoint of 113.7F and a heat index of 288F. We stayed for about 10 seconds. He tells me that he took me to the hottest one.

The overall point being--I would do what the video guy did in a heartbeat, knowing that it`s actually Wood`s metal, and that I`ve experienced much worse.

Thanks for sharing that doug.

I think I know how they did all those tricks. Damn! No more mystery anymore.

As far as 70 deg C being uncomfortable (158 deg F), never drank coffee have you?

When I worked in metallurgy, I used to retrieve "cooled" molten metal alloy samples (about 20 grams of stainless steel) from a small (about 1/2 liter) "cooling" bath with my bare hands on a daily basis. After a few samples the water (and samples) would be about 94 deg C. Mind you I didn`t keep my hand in it but for a moment, but handling the sample was no big deal, as it continued to cool rapidly.

As an afterthought, my brother works in lumber and as part of a tour, he and I walked in to a kiln that was about 83 deg C (181 deg F). We didn`t stay long as we weren`t wearing any special protection. He does this every day as part of his job. Air is not the greatest conductor of heat.

I own a magic book from 1920 that gives the following recipe:

5 ozs. bismuth
3 ozs. lead
2 ozs. block tin

This alloy will melt in boiling water, pouring it in a spoon helps cool it and the moisture in the mouth offers protection against the heat that remains.

This is very similar to Wood`s metal (without the cadmium). Lead is not as toxic as you may think, after all, it is not being swallowed, unlike children and lead paint chips.

It`s kind of like "amalgam" which is made with mercury (and my mouth and probably yours is full of it right now in the form of dental fillings).

Please show us the "true" Hindu Rope Trick next.

Damn!!! I live at the base of Dobong mountain. Can`t say I have ever seen that sort of crazy sh#t going on up there, but it sure makes me want to hike up there more often.

i doubt its even feild`s metal. its probably an alloy with an even smaller melting point but not merc.

if it was lead his jaw would melt off before he could close his mouth

Wood`s metal is toxic because it contains lead and cadmium, and therefore contact with the bare skin is thought to be harmful, especially in the molten state. Vapour from cadmium-containing alloys is also known to pose a danger to humans. Cadmium poisoning carries the risk of respiratory, liver, kidney, and bone damage, loss of sense of smell, and cancer. Field`s metal is its non-toxic alternative.

It gotta be field`s metal then, not woods metal, either way 70 degrees is very uncofortable.

It looks like the lead is already solid when he puts it in his mouth, and he holds it between his teeth and puffs his cheeks to keep his lips away from the hot metal. Sill a very impressive party trick of course!

The lead thing has to be faked. I don`t know how, they did it. No amount of physical or psychological training can prevent molten lead from burning through your tongue.
