It seems that 11-year-old Paulo David Amorim of Brazil may be unusually attractive. At least, as an Associated Press video report shows, it sure looks like all sorts of metal objects — from spoons to cooking pots — stick to his skin.
Magnetism? Or just a sticky kid?
Paulo, who is known as "magnet boy" to his friends, is certainly not the first to purportedly display such a talent.
Skeptics have been ... skeptical ... of such claims for some time. We can't find, however, a thorough debunking of "human magnet" reports at Snopes.com or the other usual places to look. So please feel free to point to evidence that either supports or undercuts such claims in the comments thread.
