A Georgian strongman has pulled a truck weighing more than eight tons using only a rope tied to his left ear. Thirty-two-year-old Lasha Pataraya performed the feat at a racetrack in the town of Rustavi, 20 kilometers from the capital, Tbilisi. Pataraya bested his previous personal record of 7,850 kilograms. Pataraya, who weighs 94 kilograms, has previously used his ear to pull a minivan weighing 4,500 kilograms and a helicopter weighing 7,734 kilograms. He's planning to beat his own record again in two weeks and wants to be recognized by the Guinness Book of Records. (Reuters)
