Man pulls passenger jet with ears

A Leicester man is hoping to walk into the record books after pulling a passenger jet with his ears

Manjit Singh, 57, pulled the aircraft 12ft along the apron at East Midlands Airport, at Castle Donington in Leicestershire, reports the BBC.

He will now send off video footage of the record attempt to be verified by officials at the Guinness World Book of Records.

The Jetstream passenger plane weighed approximately 7.4 tonnes.

Manjit already holds 30 world records, which include pulling a double decker bus with his hair and lifting 85 kg with his ears.
Speaking after the record attempt, he said: "I don't feel too bad, I have a little bit of pain around the ears but I'm ok.
"I feel really, really pleased that I've managed to achieve this and am very grateful to the people who made it possible."
The attempt raised money for his charity Manjit Fitness, which aims to get children living in his native Mahilpur, India involved in sport.

whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? what is the point? i don't understand what would make a person do this.

his next achievement is pulling a hotel using his front teeth only.

you know for some one who has been straining his ears, he doesn't actually have floppy ears, where as our Libyan grandmothers have been wearing a bit of gold in their ears and you can easily swing from their ears that's how floppy they become.

i mean what is this guy expecting, peace prize??????????

i feel the need to do a similar thing, with my hijab i will attempt to carry 10 million people and hold them for a period of 10 minutes, now that's a sight to behold looooooool

LOL!! Sis you have a way of making me laugh till I almost choke on my breakfast. I gotta read your blog after breakfast from now on IA.

Men are total and utter weirdo's as we already know. Some are just worse than others. I can't believe this will be his life achievement.
The hijab thing? I would sponser you £1 to see you do it. Maybe make it 11minutes tho eh?

well if you manage to do that then you will get to be on the BBC as well :o)

you know I heard about this man and his ears on a radio show yesterday and they were discussing how he managed to pull a 7 ton plane with his ears, then someone rang the show and said to the presenter:

Do you know how this man managed to pull this plane?

Presenter: No!

man: it took him many EARS of practice!!

I know its a bad joke but I liked it :o)
as for why he is doing it? I have no idea and can not see the point of having strong ears but perhaps there is something here for our grandmothers, start practicing pulling airplanes then you wont have floppy ears :o)

Salam White African,
You know one of my passions is trying to figure out what makes human’s tick. For the most part there are more similarities than not, but in this case I’m going to have to work a little harder.

LOL @ floppy-eared Libyan Grannies

Who knows, perhaps his ear strength came from years of listening to his wife blab all the time.

Perhaps he could earn his own Acronym and add it to the following list”

ADD = Attention Deficit Dysfunction

FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions (which seems to be a multitude in his case)

HOH = Hard of Hearing (As a result of pulling one too many planes)

OCD = Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (YOU THINK?)

TCFH = Too Crazy For Himself

white african said...
