Craziest Guinness World Records
« on: April 06, 2020, 06:13:26 pm »
Many of us love to exceed our achievements — whether we are gunning for an Olympic world record or for our personal records done straight from our backyards. It’s a part of our nature to push ourselves to the limit. Many people are trying to outdo other people (and also themselves) so they can be included in the Guinness Book of World Records. With each passing year new records break the old ones and the standards are very high. However, in this gallery we are not compiling who is just the tallest or the shortest. We also list some of the wackiest, silliest, and weirdest records tallied in Guinness’ history (we also include one amazing feat that was rejected by Guinness).

Want to be famous in the Guinness books? Apply at and attempt to set a new world record!

World’s Shortest Man
Khagendra Thapa Magar is a man from Nepal. A primordial dwarf, he measures 2 feet and 2 inches tall, and weighs only 5.5 kilos (12 pounds 2 ounces).

Well, Khagendra is formerly the shortest man in the world. Called “Little Buddha,” he was also the shortest teenager in the world when he dethroned the Colombian dwarf Edward Nino Hernandez in 2010. However, he eventually lost to 1’10” tall Junrey Balawing of the Philippines who took the title of the Shortest Man in the World in 2011.

The Most Surfers on One Wave
Surfers in Cape Town, South Africa succeeded in their attempt to break the record of “The Most Surfers on One Wave” in 2009. An estimated 120 surfers rode on the wave in Cape Town’s Muizenberg beach. The record was previously held by Brazil in 2008.

Largest Commercially Available Hamburger
Check out this mammoth burger at Mallie’s Sports Grill and Bar in in Southgate, Michigan, USA. The restaurant’s “Absolutely Ridiculous Burger” weighed 84.3 kilos by the time it was unveiled in 2009, making it the biggest commercially available burger ever. Meaning, it’s part of the restaurant’s menu, which you can order for a hefty price tag of $400.

Largest Rubber Band Ball
You may love to mount on this giant rubber band ball and jump with it! It was made by Joe Waul in the USA and was measured in Lauderhill, Florida in the USA in 2008.

A total of around 700,000 rubber bands of all sizes were used in the creation of this giant ball, which Waul began making back in 2004. It measured 6 feet and 7 inches high, and 25 feet and 4 inches in diameter.

Most Spoons On Face
In 2009 Aaron Caissie from Canada was declared as the person with the Most Spoons on Face with 17. But he was eventually beaten by Dalibor Jablanovic from Serbia, with 31 spoons on his face; that certain record was tabbed in September 2013. Jablanovic remains unbeaten in this feat.

Longest Nose
A Turkish man named Mehmet Ozyurek has been confirmed as having the longest nose ever recorded on a living person. Born in 1949, Ozyurek’s smeller measured 3.5 inches long when it was last measured in March 2010 in Rome, Italy.

Most Concrete Blocks Broken While Holding A Raw Egg
It seems no one else will dare to overtake Germany’s Joe Alexander from the throne as someone with the “Most Concrete Blocks Broken While Holding a Raw Egg.” This Hamburg native smashed concrete blocks arranged in three single stacks of eight consecutively while holding a raw egg in the hand he used to break the blocks. After the blocks had been broken, the egg amazingly remained intact. This record was tallied by Guinness in November 2010 in celebration of Guinness World Records Day.

Most Snails On Face
That is a really silly achievement, but an achievement nonetheless! In 2009, Eleven-year-old Fin Kehler from Utah, USA had 43 slimy snails placed on his face for a total of 10 seconds. He broke the previous record of 36 in 2007.

Most Insured Hair
NFL football player Troy Polamalu has proven that hair is indeed a person’s crowning glory. Apart from football achievements, the stalwart from the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL) is also famous for his voluminous, curly locks. His big hair enables him to be easily spotted on the field. In 2010, Polamalu’s hair was insured for $1 million with the insurance firm Lloyd’s of London by Procter and Gamble (P&G).

Polamalu’s hair measured three feet long at the time of the insurance; he did not cut it in deference to his Samoan ancestors. Presently he is the endorser of Head and Shoulders shampoo, one of P&G’s brands, and has appeared in five commercials for the product.

Longest Time Spent Buried Alive
In 2004, magician Zdenek Zahradka from the Czech Republic spent 10 days buried alive in his coffin — and survived. He beat the previous world record for being buried alive for four days.

However, Guinness no longer lists records for the longest time buried alive, and discourages people to set such a record. Needless to say, Zahradka’s feat was rejected by Guinness.

Longest Time Spent Buried Alive
Tallest Man
At present, the tallest living man goes to Sultan Kosen from Ankara, Turkey. The part-time farmer was measured at 8 feet 3 inches and the measurement was conducted in February 2011. Kosen beat Xi Shun from China, who measured 7 feet 9 inches tall.

Apart from being the tallest living person, Kosen also holds the record of having the largest hands of a living person, with each hand measuring 11.22 inches from the wrist up to the tip of the middle finger.
