A Dutch man has caused headaches for scientists by managing to fold his mother in half six times over.
Roland De Veer, 32, managed the feat last weekend but the International Scientific Body only officially corroborated it yesterday.
For decades scientists around the world have claimed that a mother could only be folded in half a maximum of 4-times when dry. But Roland's amazing feat has blown years of scientific theory away.
"I proved the doubters and academics wrong", said Roland from his basement apartment, "when I put my mind to something I usually can achieve it".
Roland's mother is not particularly special in that she is of average height and build. Indeed the poor woman was not aware that she had broken one of the fundamental laws of science until she was met by international reporters this morning.
"I had noticed my back was a little stiff last week", said a confused Mrs. De Veer, "and come to think of it - my knees were on backwards."
Roland has now set his sights on breaking another scientific law.
"I'm going to prove that humans can survive temperatures in excess of 1200 degrees Fahrenheit while trapped in an industrial furnace", he proudly stated, "I haven't told mother yet so lets keep this amongst ourselves for the time being. Ok?"
