Flying without the help of any mechanism. Telepathy. Walking on water. These, together with other mind-boggling stunts, are just some of the things humanity has crossed off as feats that are nearly or totally impossible to perform.

However, Shi Liliang, a Shaolin monk from China, just proved otherwise – by successfully performing the extraordinary act of walking on water.

Meet Shi Liliang, a Shaolin monk from Quanzhou, China.

The Shaolin monk accomplished the feat in front of a large crowd wishing him to succeed. By just looking at it, it may seem that this run is a fluke; however, this is not the first time he did the trick. He has set a 120 meter record last January.

Every day we hear stories of people doing heroic acts of bravery, be it taking care of someone they're not even related to, or just a simple deed that might be a lifesaver for others.

A neighbor is always there to lend a hand they say, and that's what Becky Novotny is, who offered a ride to Gabe Bellus, who walks with his mom everyday for about 45 minutes each to go to school and back home. This makes the little boy overly tired.

You see there's a state law that prohibits school buses from picking up kids who live less than four miles from school. This meant an almost 4-hour walk for Kim, Gabe's mom, to bring him to school and pick him up to go home.

Kim, who is also a student herself, cannot afford to buy a car. She has also sought help from the school's administration, but with no success.

The city located in South China’s Guangdong province is also famous for its polyamorous relationships culture and kept men. Apparently, the tremendous imbalance between the two sexes in the city has allowed men to have more than one girlfriend.

Instead of hiring men, local factories with assembly plants prefer employing far more reliable women. As a result, the city has just 89 males for every 100 females.
