Kim Goodman is a woman who is able to pop her eyes out of her eye sockets by 12 millimeters (0.47 inches).[1][2][3] She holds the world record for the farthest eyeball protrusion. She lives in Chicago, Illinois. She discovered her eyeball popping talent one day when she was hit over the head. Her eyeballs popped out much further than usual and ever since that day she could pop them out on cue, as well as when she yawns.[2]

She has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman.[4][5]

In 2004, Goodman was included by Guinness World Records in their 50th anniversary list of top ten "feats" of all time.[6]
