WORLD RECORDS


World’s Largest (Bones) Human Skeleton

Ok. That might be a slight exaggeration. I’m sure there are some dinosaur skeletons that are larger. But you have to admit… this is pretty darn big. Measuring over 55 feet long, this skeleton (made out of polystyrene and resin) was created by Algerian-born French artist Adel Abdessemed. It was last displayed at the St. Johannes Evangelist church in Berlin, Germany. Who knows where it will end up next?

Unbelievable Long Nails(Longest fingernails)

Admit it, you’re obsessed with knowing who has the longest fingernails in the world. We are too! To our best knowledge, we have found the current world recorder holder for the longest fingernails to be Lee Redmond (USA). Ms. Redmond, who hasn’t cut her nails since 1979, has grown and carefully manicured them to reach a total length of 7 m 51.3 cm (24 ft 7.8 in). Measurements of each fingernail are below:

Right hand
Thumb 76.4 cm 30.1 in
Index finger 72.3 cm 28.5 in
Middle finger 74.1 cm 29.2 in
Ring finger 73.6 cm 29 in
Little finger 71.6 cm 28.2 in
Left Hand
Thumb 80 cm 31.5 in
Index finger 76.4 cm 30.1 in
Middle finger 76.7 cm 30.2 in
Ring finger 76.2 cm 30 in
Little finger 73.6 cm 29 in

The record holder for the longest fingernails before Lee Redmond was Shridhar Chillal. Cutting his nails in 2000, he had held the record for 20 years!

HAIRIEST Man (Most Hairs on Face)

Victor “Larry” Ramos Gomez(shown in picture) and his brother Gabriel “Danny”(both Mexico) suffer from a rare condition characterized by excessive facial and bodily hair. They are two of a family of 19 that spans five generations, and all suffer from congentital generalized hypertrichosis.

Granny’s 15 inch Waist

Dont worry,you don’t need to visit any optician, there’s nothing wrong with your eyes. And the photo is perfectly normal too.Cathie Jung’s astonishing 39-15-39 figure is the result of spending the last 25 years laced into tight corsets, which only come off when she showers. But the 70-year-old insists there is no concern. Grandmother Cathie is perfectly healthy. The most frequent aim of tightlacing is a slim waist. Depending on the silhouette desired, the shape of the ribcage may be altered as well. However, these effects are only temporary and will be lost on removing the corset. Excessive corset wearing has been claimed to weaken certain muscles, making it more difficult to maintain posture without a corset. Cathie Jung is currently the smallest living person’s waistline listed in the Guinness Book Of Records.

World’s most TILTED building

A German church steeple has knocked the leaning tower of Pisa from the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s most tilted building. The tower in the village of Suurhusen applied in June for the title and has now officially beaten the famous landmark in Pisa.Guinness Book of Records confirmed the award after officials measured it leaning at a 5.19degree angle compared to only 3.97 degree angle at which the tower of Pisa leans.

World’s Tallest & Shortest Man (hand-in-hand)

They finally met, with disbelief in each other’s uniqueness.

Bao Xishun, former world’s tallest man, who stands at 7.9 feets tall shook hands with one of the shortest man, He Pingping at height of 2.4 feet (73cm). Amazingly, both of them actually lives in the same region of Inner Mongolia. Bao Xishun was once registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s tallest man in 2006.

World’s LONGEST HAIR

Vietnam’s Tran Van Hay, must have saved great deal of money by not going to the barber in over 31 years, has hair that’s 20 feet long. On the other hand, he must’ve spent alot on shampoo too! He is confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest hair in the world. Tran Van Hay, now 73 years old, has hair which is now 6.3m (20 ft 7 in) long, according to Vietnam’s state-controlled press. He stopped cutting his hair when he and his wife had their first child to avoid being sick. He can’t work anymore as a farmer because of the volume of hair so he’s just collecting herbs for traditional medicine as charity work.

Man with the LARGEST HAND (Longest Finger)

Having one of the largest hand in the world, Liu Hua, a 24-year-old Jiangsu Province, China, was born with a very large left thumb, index and middle finger. Although his ring and little finger appeared to be normal.Liu’s three fingers and arm grew dramatically as he grew older and this had a serious affect on his life and his ability to work. When Liu was hospitalized in Shanghai No. 9 People’s Hospital in July ’07, his left thumb measured 26 centimeters, his index finger was 30cm and his middle finger 15cm. The overall weight of his left arm alone was about 10 kilograms! Liu was suffering from a rare disease called macrodactyly, a birth defect in which toes or fingers are abnormally large. The cause of the disease is unknown but bone and soft tissue grows at an extraordinary rate. Liu’s fingers has stopped growing in recent years so plastic surgery was at last possible to correct the malformation. Liu hope that a successful surgery will give him back a normal life. July 20 surgeons began a seven-hour operation to reduce the size of Liu’s fingers and thumb. Doctors removed 5.1kg of flesh and bone in the procedure. But this is just the first stage with a second operation is scheduled in six months to reshape his left arm and shoulder.

World’s only Toilet House

Notice any resemblance to any of your household item? No.!!! But you are wrong! Now a better look from the top, manage to notice it by now? Yes, you’re right! It’s a toilet-shaped home, the world’s one and only toilet house. The house design was brainchild by Sim Jae-duck, chairman of the organising committee of the Inaugural General Assembly of the World Toilet Association to mark the association’s first general assembly in November. Worth US$1.6 million, the 4,508-sq-foot two-storey concrete and glass structure features a couple of bedrooms, four deluxe toilets, and even a small garden in the front of the house.
