Stan Lee's Superhumans
The Man Who Feels No Pain
Full Name: Tim Cridland
Hometown: New York, USA
Tim Cridland claims to be able to switch off pain. His seemingly superhuman ability to go beyond normal pain thresholds by impaling himself with skewers--and causing little or no bleeding--is nothing short of extraordinary.
From an early age, Tim was fascinated by the images he saw of Indian fakirs lying on beds of nails and piecing their muscles or skin with sharp skewers. Determined to learn their secret, Tim studied their ancient techniques and now claims to have mastered the power of mind over matter. He claims to not only block out the perception of extreme pain, but also to prevent his body from bleeding as he impales his arms and throat with sharpened bicycle spokes.
Tim believes there is little can't withstand through meditation. Daniel puts him to the test to try and find out whether Tim is truly superhuman.
If you think that people with superhuman abilities are only found in comic books or in Hollywood movies--think again.
