China seems to be in the forefront of weird a$$ records these days.
Gao Yang, aged 37, claims that he can sleep, balanced on a rope, tied between two trees for up to 7 hours at a time. He now hopes to get recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Gao from Anshan, northeastern China’s Liaoning Province, says that he “rehearses” every morning on a 10-foot high rope in a local park.
“I met a master when I was 12, and he taught me some tips. It took me nearly 24 years to acquire the skill. It’s nearly impossible for ordinary people to do this. It needs the perfect coordination of body muscles and balancing skills. I am finally ready to contact Guinness in the coming days and am confident of being able to set a world record,” he told reporters.
In a country with a huge population, could this be the future in cheap housing?
