There’s a boy who can stick metal to his skin!

An eleven-year-old boy living in Brazil named Paulo David Amorim has earned the nickname “Magnet Boy” because of his amazing ability to stick metal objects to his body! Amorim can attract anything from forks, knives, and even casserole pots to his body, and he’s actually not the only one who has the talent.

Scientists aren’t sure why this strange phenomenon occurs, but they had deduced that these peoples’ bodies don’t have a magnetic field like previously believed, but rather have much higher levels of friction than the average person causing a “suction” effect on metal objects.
