One thing that I find endlessly fascinating is just how strong people can become. On the moment on UK television (on Channel 5) they are showing the 2007 World's Strongest Man - I watched the first heat this evening.
These guys are capable of lifting some of the most amazing weights, hundreds of kilograms. It;s unreal. These guys are the closest things to the superheroes of comic books.
Phil Pfister andTarmo Mitt won this evening's heat but we've yet to see Mariusz Pudzianowski, the best of them all.
