Metal Objects Stick To Brazil’s ‘Magnet Boy’

Miracle or hoax? An 11-year-old Brazilian boy’s boy attracts metal household objects, and there are reports of a similar child in Croatia. Perhaps most baffling is the comment from his doctor: “It is not completely out of the ordinary.”

  3. Et tu, Disinfo? What is this…the 3rd or fourth sticky fat kid stuff clings to? Magnetism isn’t curable with a shower and diet. It isn’t that uncommon…the world has lots of fat sticky kids.

    funny the word “hoax” was offered and immediately taken bc it seems to be so much easier to just dismiss something like this… i don’t know either way, but i think it’s possible.. and if anything, interesting.

  9. A camera? An electric razor? When will these news reports learn that non-metallic objects instantly scupper the magnet theory… the most bizarre phenomenon here is that we are still amazed by sticky children.

  22. this gets posted on here every six months…?
    it was studied in great detail long ago with that old thai dude, and shown it has to do with very smooth/hairless skin. greasy fat kid is a pretty fair description. flat objects make an air-proof seal with the skin because it’s so flat, works like suction. high powered dermatology cameras can show the evidence immediately. nothing to do with magnets… nothing fantasmical either. sadly I have chest hair and it doesn’t work on me….

  24. As far as i know, all coins are non ferrous, they are not attracted to magnets.   yeah, strange to see this on dis-info again.  Also, wasn’t there a dis-info story about the CIA dosing a whole town in France with LSD some 60 years ago?
