Here is a guy who can literally blow you away. Jemal Tkeshelashvili, from Georgia, is a superhuman with a very unique ability. He can blow up hot water bottles to the point where they explode, with his nose. Jemal currently holds the Guinness World Record for most hot water bottles burst with the nose in one minute.
What Jemal does might seem silly, but it’s actually quite extraordinary considering most people can barely blow up a latex balloon, let alone a thick rubber hot water bottle, with their nose. One might think it’s his lungs that do all the work, but tests have shown that his lungs are not much different than those of an average healthy person. He has good pulmonary volume, but it’s the force with which he’s capable of pushing out the air that makes him special. That means his strong intercostal and abdominal muscles push out all the air in his lungs really fast, creating enormous pressure. In 2009, the 23-year-old judo practitioner set a new record for most hot water bottles burst with the nose in one minute, managing to explode three of them, but th’s capable of much more impressive feats.

During his record bid, Jemal Tkeshelashvili proved he has more blowing power than any other man on Earth, by blowing up a hot water bottle with a 120-kg man sitting on it. During an episode of the Discovery Channel’s Duperhuman Showdown program, Jemal took things to another level, by trying to inflate a hot water bottle with a 650-kg-heavy car sitting on it. He somehow managed to lift the vehicle two centimeters before the rubber bottle burst. To pull off this trick, he had to produce at least three times the pressure normal human beings are capable of.
Jemal Tkeshelashvili is a true superhuman, now all he has to do is find a practical use for his incredible ability.
