Are you afraid of electricity?
You should be because as much as most of everything we do on a daily basis is made possible by electricity, the same power can be quite dangerous.
Every year up to 100,000 people in the United States alone are treated for electrocution; most of them with serious burns. It is also estimated that up to 60 people will die from electric shock every year.
That is why Slavisa Pajkic, also known as “the battery man”, is not an ordinary human being.
He has the amazing ability to withstand high voltage without as much as a burn.
This extra-ordinary ability has made him one of the few people on earth who can comfortably hold the title of “Superhuman”
It is almost hard to believe that Slavisa Pajkic had a normal every day childhood, having been born and raised in Serbia’s Pozarevac County.
His childhood may have been unremarkable and normal but his adult life would be anything but.
He discovered his unusually amazing ability at the age of 17 and has had a remarkable relationship with electricity ever since.
Those who have seen him in action will attest to the fact that he seems to become one with electricity.
This is evidenced by the fact that he can withstand voltage as high as 20,000 when all it would take to seriously injure a human is 50 volts.
His ability has seen him set two Guinness records; in 1983 and in 2003.
His ability has seen him set two world records. His first record was set in 1983 when he was able to take 20,000 volts of electricity without sustaining any injuries to his person.
His second world record came in 2003. This time he was able to conduct electricity for long enough to heat a cup of water to about 97 degrees Celsius (206.6 F). It took just over 1 minute and 37 seconds to do this.
He claims to be a conductor, an insulator, a heater or an accumulator of electricity depending on what he wants to do or what is expected of him.
What is even more puzzling is that scientist are unable to figure out exactly what it is that enables him do all of these things.
This is after numerous bouts of studying and testing. He can also store electricity in his body and release it at will as evidenced by the many times he has set an alcohol-soaked cloth ablaze with his body.
Learned or Genetic Superpower?
There are some scientists that claim he has a genetic disorder that may explain why he does what he does.
They explain that because he doesn’t have sweat or salivary glands, electricity is able to pass through his outer skin that acts as insulation. These claims however, remain unproven.
We don’t believe this is something that someone could “learn” to do. In fact it would be outright foolish to even try. With this in mind we are going to say his power is genetic.
What we can learn from him
Slavisa Pajkic is no ordinary person; that much is evident. There may be others like him in the world and if there are, it may be prudent for the scientific community to understand exactly how he is able to accomplish these dangerous feats with little injury.
His ability may even have some practical applications. But, it is the fact that he is different that makes him all the more special.
His courage in demonstrating his abilities can be an inspiration and motivation to other people who are different to also make themselves known.
It is never a good idea to try to do what he does, but he teaches us that it is advantageous to embrace your unique abilities even if they seem weird.
What he is up to now
Because of his super-human ability to conduct electricity, Slavisa Pajkic has been featured on very many Television and Live shows around the world.
He is currently working on third world record where he will be expected to charge a million-volt generator and shoot laser from his fingers.
Many have called his new attempt at a world record suicidal, but if anyone can do it, Slavisa Pajkic can.
He currently uses his ability to help people suffering from sinus and back problems as well as those suffering from debilitating migraines.
He is truly an extra-ordinary person who has earned the title “super-human” in more ways than one.
The world awaits his next attempt at a world record with the enthusiasm and expectation that he will be able to do it.
