    It`s hard to believe but China has the largest population of english speakers in the world. Although, it`s really just a testament to how freaking huge they are as a country.

    What I find incredible is that he said he started practicing when he was 19, but he doesn`t look that much older. You would think it would take a lifetime to get that good!

    the answer as to why the chinese use so many English words in everything is because its cool for them. The widespread knowledge of English among the Chinese has only began over past 2 generations when China was economically booming and could afford a quality education to all their students. Since the younger generations think its cool, its cool.

    @MrsHoneyDew, the thing is...since he lost his arms at such a young age he had many years to get used to using his feet in everyday life. To the point that he is probably way better with his feet than we normally are with our hands..considering our hands only share half the load..his feet took it all.

    This is pretty amazing. October 2008 I shattered my elbow and was told I might lose complete control of my left arm. It scared the crap outta me. I had metal plates and whatnot put in...which is all getting taken out next Thursday when I go in for surgery..and I sometimes feel sorry for myself for the disadvantages I have and pain my arm gives me; I feel like my situation is so insignificant now.

    That means that he probably touched high voltage lines and it did pretty much what you would expect.

    Believe it or not, masturbating with your feet is easier than using eating utensils or even brushing your hair with your feet.

    Yes. Personal experience.

    Wow I was seriously impressed and moved by his performance, but the darn damper pedal was down the ENTIRE time and it muddied the sound enough to distract me from what he was playing. I think if they rigged up some way for him to lift the pedal at the ends of the phrases his performance would be near flawless. Amazing determination and spirit nonetheless.

    `This Guy Plays Piano Better Than You Ever Will. Think you`ve got an advantage with your hands? Think again! `

    silly caption is patronising toward the piano player.




    like his mam says `you are nothing different`...Had I a background in music i would only judge him with my ear ie, how well he plays....nothing more!

    And for eldavo, really? Video or it doesn`t count. Even if you by some miracle had better technical skills than this guy, that doesn`t necessarily mean anything. Musical skill isn`t rated on how many piano lessons your mommy made you go to.

    People arguing with ElDavo`s comment are being idiots, he`s not saying that this guy is bad at the piano or that he would be able to play better than him if he didn`t have arms, he`s saying the CAPTION on the LINK is stupid, because ElDavo can play better piano with HIS HANDS. It`s nothing against Liu Wei, it`s just another complaint about one of the many retarded captions that IAB comes up with for its posts - it`s perfectly believable for ElDavo to be better at piano that Liu Wei, as whilst it is definitely amazing that Liu Wei is that good, a pianist of the same skill would be able to play better piano with hands

    MagsHeadroom, oh I didn`t realize that the purpose of IAB was accurate reporting. It`s called hyperbole, look it up. I suppose you think the caption should have read "Man with no arms plays piano adequately with his feet, but clearly not as well as someone could play with their hands if they were quite skilled on the piano."

    The point is that MOST PEOPLE will never play the piano as well with any of their limbs.

    It`s likely that most people can play better than this guy with their hands. but that`s because of the muscles involved in moving your toes, it`s immpossible to play certain chords. You just can`t move all your toes individualy or with the percision that you can fingers. no doubt he`s awesome, but the videos title made me think the video would make me feel depressed about my own piano playing skills. Instead it just made me impressed with his.

    I do think I have an advantage with my hands and I do think I can play the piano that well as him with my hands.

    But with his feat? That is REALLY impressive. That is surely I can never do.
