The Serbian magnetic boyClick thumbnail to view full-size
IN the Balkan peninsula in southern Europe is a place called Serbia where lived an incredible magnet boy and his family
Bogdan, which is the name of this 7-year old boy, is no different in looks from other boys his age in his native country, but what makes him special to his family, friends and those who are accustomed to him is his inborn capacity to attract ferromagnetic things and make them stick to his body.
Human magnet. Unbelievable!
We have seen and knew magnets their characteristics and polarities. We knew fully well that they possess magnetic force to attract materials such as iron and nickel. In same manner, Bogdan possesses all the same characteristics of a magnet. But what makes him unique is that he’s human. He’s a human magnet. He’s a boy. He’s a boy magnet. This truly defies explanation. This is a mystery. Why is he different? Why can’t his playmates and schoolmates attract objects made out of iron or nickel like him?
He interrupts normal functioning of computers
Minus his shirt, Bogdan can make silverware, metal, remote control and even plates stick to his body, as reported by his parents. The irony of it is that he’s forbidden to get near a working computer or he’ll interrupts its normal functioning.
I am pretty sure Bogdan will not learn the rudiments of how to go about with a computer and allied gadgets and appliances because by mere getting near them, he’ll attract and destroy them. The kid is in the mess of things which is not of his own making. What a pity?
Proud of his achievements
Notwithstanding the pros and cons brought about by his bizarre ability, Bogdan is seemingly unfazed with the media attention given him. He is beginning to earn quite a celebrity attention. Lately, reports have it that he was made to do a little show before photographers who were attentive taking shots of the kid as things like cutlery, china plates and bowls, TV remote control, frying pan, etc. were stuck one after the other to his bare chest. The magnetic kid Bogdan is said to be proud of his accomplishments.
Bogdan’s parents testified that the child’s magnetic power is inborn and that it’s getting stronger as he grow older.
