I think most of us have seen those crazy pictures of people with nails that hang out like 25 feet. We’ve seen the pictures of women with hair so long it touches the ground. These are some of the more well known weird records that human beings have.
But Guinness has 1000′s of records, most of which we have no clue of unless we buy the book every year. My hope is that that records are simply reported when someone thinks it’s a record. What I mean is, I sincerely hope people aren’t busting their asses to achieve these nonsense records.
Here are six that make no sense but are interesting to see…
Thanks to Top Tenz for these finds….
The Most T-Shirts Worn at Once
Krunoslav Budiseli set a new world record on May 22, 2010 for wearing 245 T-shirts at the same time. The man from Croatia was officially recognized as the new record holder by Guinness World of Records after he managed to put on 245 different T-shirts in less than two hours.
Longest Ears on a Dog
A bloodhound from Illinois has the longest ears ever measured on a dog. The right ear is 13.75 in long and the left one 13.5 in. The dog named Tigger earned this title in 2004 and is owned by Christina and Bryan Flessner.
Most Body Piercings in One Session
In May 2010, Chris Elliot and Tyson Turk (USA) set the world record for most body piercings in one session: 3100 in 6 hours and 15 minutes. It all happened at the Tyson Turk Tattoo Studio, Bedford, Texas
The Most People inside a Soap Bubble
Fan Yang and Deni Yang impressed the audience with their awesome skills for bubble making. The Yang family collaborated with the Discovery Science Center to set a new Guinness World Record for most people inside a soap bubble and they succeeded. The family that has been working with soap bubbles for 27 years created a huge soap bubble and got 118 people inside it.
Fastest One Mile Run Wearing Swim Fins
American Ashrita Furman, nicknamed Mr. Versatility, is no stranger to Guinness World of Records. He set more than 340 official Guinness records since 1979 and currently holds 113, including the record for fastest mile run in swim fins: 7 min 56 sec. Ashrita achieved this record in 2010 at the Marswiese Sportzentrum in Vienna, Austria.
Heaviest Weight Pulled with Eye Sockets
Believe it or not, the heaviest weight pulled with eye sockets is 907 pounds (411.65 kilograms). This extreme record was set by Chayne Hultgren, also known as The Space Cowboy. The Australian achieved the record in Milano on the set of “Lo Show Dei Record” in 2009.
