1. Garry Turner (UK) is able to stretch the skin of his stomach to a distended length of 15.8 cm (6.25 in) due to a rare medical condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a disorder of the connective tissues affecting the skin, ligaments and internal organs. This record can never be broken and this is how he looks while stretching:
2. The oldest competitive female bodybuilder is E. Wilma Conner (USA, b. 09 May 1935). She last competed in the 2011 NPC Armbrust Pro Gym Warrior Classic Bodybuilding Championships in Loveland, Colorado, USA, on 20 August 2011. I don’t think this record will ever be beaten
3. The record for the heaviest vehicle pulled over a level 100 ft (30.48 m) course weighed a whooping 57,243 kg (126,200 lb) and was set by Rev. Kevin Fast (Canada) on the “Live with Regis & Kelly” television show in New York, New York, USA, on 15 September 2008
4. Longest time sitting on a pole: St. Simeon the Stylite spent 39 years on a pillar on the Hill of Wonders, near Aleppo, Syria. Just imagine sitting on a pole for 39 years straight.
5. The farthest arrow shot into a target using the feet is 6.09 m (20 ft) and was achieved by Nancy Siefker (USA) on the set of ‘Guinness World Records Unleashed’ in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 20 June 2013.
6. The most roof tiles broken in one minute is 923 and was achieved by Lisa Dennis (UK) on the set of ‘Lo Show dei Record’ in Milan, Italy, on 11 July 2014. Don’t ever think of breaking this record.
7. Robert was born February 22, 1918 in Alton, Illinois. By the time he died, July 15, 1940, aged just 22 years, his body measured 8′ 11′’ (2.71 m.). He never stopped growing and eventually his bones could not support his unbelievable height. He needed metal braces for his legs, and he contracted an infection from a cut due to the braces, and died from the infection. He was studying to be a lawyer. its not photoshop.
8. I hope many of their records will never be broken, such as that of John Brower Minnoch. He “earned” the record of heaviest person ever at a whopping 1400lbs. Please don’t try to beat his record
9. Classified Information (The World’s Largest Office Building)
Built in 1943 during the height of World War II, the Pentagon was never intended to hold the record for the world’s largest office building 72 years later. Racking in at over 6 million square feet, over half of that is used for office space. Most impressive, though, is that the building manages to pack in more square footage than the Empire State Building despite being only four stories tall.
When the 1955 Guinness World Records came out, the confirmed total number of employees at the Pentagon sat at 28,500. By 2008, that number had been upped to 31,000 personnel, showing that this is not a record that plans to rest on its laurels just yet.
