This man is probably triple your age, and his flexibility is off any chart you’ve ever seen.

“Like many 68-year-olds, Mbah Bejan occasionally gets bent out of shape. Unlike other oldsters, he’s OK with that because he’s a contortionist, and flexibility is part of the job. Bejan is a celebrity in Indonesia for the amazing ways he can twist and turn his body, according to Barcroft TV.

Bejan can fold his body in two and squeeze in a pipe around 19.5 inches wide. He can also make his body resemble a roasted chicken by lying on his back, swiveling his knees 180 degrees and placing his feet flat on his stomach. Bejan discovered his amazing ability at the age of 11 when a thorn pierced his foot and he twisted his leg up to his face to get a better look in order to remove it, according to the Mirror.”
