People touch a car as they compete during a car-touching competition in Shanghai April 29, 2013. Some 60 people compete to win a brand new Volkswagen Polo by keeping their hands pressed against the automobile as long as they can. The last person standing will be the winner. Contestants are allowed just one 15-minute bathroom break for every six hours they remain standing. Last year, in a similar competition in China, a 27-year-old man won a BMW car after he stood with his hand against the vehicle for 87 hours. REUTERS/Carlos Barria (CHINA - Tags: SOCIETY TRANSPORT)

A customs officer checks as a vehicle of a South Korean company carrying products made in inter-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea, arrives at the customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ) office, just south of the demilitarized zone separating the North from South Korea in Paju, north of Seoul April 27, 2013. On Friday, Pyongyang rejected a call for formal talks to end a standoff that forced operations at the joint industrial complex to be halted. South Korea in turn said it would pull out all its remaining workers from Kaesong. Of the 175 remaining South Korean workers, 126 workers left the factory zone on Saturday. The rest are scheduled to return on Monday. REUTERS/Lee Jae-Won (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: MILITARY POLITICS BUSINESS TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY TRANSPORT)
