If you thought walking on water only exists in the Bible (and in animes), wait till you meet Shaolin monk Shi Liliang.
A monk from the Buddhist Quanzhou Shaolin Temple in the Chinese city of Quanzhou, Shi Liliang successfully pranced across a river in front of a crowd recently. (What a way to impress the ladies...)
Well, sort of.
He had to use 200 pieces of floating wooden planks to assist him in pulling off the water walk, which he had been practicing for the past decade. Yep; Shi Liliang not only treaded 125 meters of the said body of water on foot, he also broke his previous record of 120 meters he set back in January.
According to the ninja-esque holy man during an interview in October last year, the technique requires speed and patience. "You need to be fast but you should take only small steps," he said.
So much for vague instructions. Anyway, check out his water-defying feat in the video below:
