Rice farmer Kaan, 61, has been married 87 times to 46 different women, according to Knowyournews.com.

Even his latest wife isn’t all that new to him, as he was married to her before – for just four months.

It’s unclear what has changed since then, but Kaan is certainly willing to take a risk.

Her longest marriage is said to have lasted 14 years. His first came when he was 14.

Kaan told Indonesian media that he chose to get married instead of just dating women because “I also didn’t want to play with women’s feelings, let alone other people’s children. Rather than commit immorality, it is better that I marry.

A MAN HAD HEADPHONES IN HIS EAR FOR FIVE YEARS

A man in the UK thought he was going deaf from problems he had had for five years.

Turns out he had a piece of earphone lodged in his ear.

Wallace Lee, from Weymouth in Dorset, England, thought the hearing loss was just a normal result of his career in the aviation industry or playing rugby.

But after using a home endoscope kit, Lee found a small white object in his ear and went to see his doctor, according to the BBC.

He thinks it got stuck when he went on a trip to Australia and bought “specific little earplugs that you can put different accessories in, depending on how much noise you want to phase out on a plane”, did he declare.

“One of those little attachments had lodged there, and it’s been there ever since.”

“[The doctor] I tried to suck it out first…but because it had been there for so long with the hard earwax buildup, it wouldn’t budge at all,” Lee said.

“So he got these miniature clamps that they inserted into this other tube in the ear canal…I could really feel him pulling, and all of a sudden it popped.

“Instantly, I could hear everything in the room. The fog that had been in my head for all these years came and went – and I could hear perfectly well.
