Yuzuru Hanyu has broken world records 10 times, he is the holder of the highest score in short program, long program and combined score, he is the first man to have broken the 100-point barrier in the short program, the 200-point barrier in Long program and the 300-point barrier in the combined total score.
Let’s see if the overhyped youngsters can come even close to these results LOL
In fact, it is the world’s longest dog tail, according to the Guinness Book Of World Records. The Irish wolfhound’s name is Keon, which means “courageous warrior,” none of which really matters because just look at that goddamn tail. The 30-inch long leviathan of fur whips around like a separate animal surgically fused to the dog, like some sort of real-life sphinx. Perhaps no shot in the video above is as stunning as the one in which the crazily proportioned dog catches a piece of bread in mid-air, his tail flailing wildly behind him in a manner that could swipe a grown man’s feet out from under him. Even when shot from the front, the tail is visible. The fucking thing moves with a mind of its own.
And so we say: Good for you, courageous warrior, dog with long-ass tail. In other eras you might treated as a demon or a visitor from another dimension. In ours, you are a world-record holder.
Mamihlapinatapai: a word from the language of the yámana natives of the Land of Fire, listed in the Guiness Book of Records as the “world’s most consistant word” and it is considered as one of the hardest terms to translate. It means “a look between two people, each one waiting for the other to make a move that both want but none are willing to start”
Today in 1938, the most prolific comics creator on Earth was born. Shotaro Ishinomori was a protege of manga legend Osamu Tezuka and would go on to create some of the most iconic Japanese heroes including Kamen Rider, Kikaider, Cyborg 009 and the first two Sentai Series (Himitsu Sentai Goranger and J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai). He holds the Guiness Book of World Records record for most single comics pages drawn and published with over 128,000! Sadly, he passed away at the age of 60 in 1998.
Among his lesser known but amazing works are Akumaizer 3 and Brother Fist Bycrosser (pictured above). He also created the Toei Fushigi Comedy Series of programs. Without him, we wouldn’t have much of the tokusatsu we enjoy today.
Shakuntala Devi (1929-2013) was an Indian mental calculator, and achieved the popular
name of “human computer” and an entry in the Guinness World Book of Records for
her remarkable calculating abilities. She achieved this in 1980, when she was
able to multiply two randomly-chosen 13-digit numbers in 28 seconds.
Her father discovered
her ability at the age of three, and she continued to exhibit an impressive
power of memorising numbers and doing mathematical operations even if she
received no formal education. She revealed some of her strategies in a book
entitled Figuring: The Joy of Numbers. She
also wrote a book called The World of
Homosexuals, the first study of homosexuality in India, which advocated for
tolerance and the decriminalisation of same-sex relationships.
This fabulous 17th century armour is composed of 5,840 plates and weighs 118kg, some plates are missing and originally the total number would be 8,439 and weigh 159kg! The tusk swords that accompany this armour (not on display) weigh in at 10kg.
It is the only animal armour of this scale on public display and recently entered the Guinness Book of Records as the largest animal armour in the world.
Lebanon accused the Israeli people of trying to steal hummus and make it their national dish, explains Ronit Vered, a food journalist with the newspaper Haaretz in Tel Aviv. And so hummus became a symbol, she tells us, “a symbol of all the tension in the Middle East.”
The war began over a 4,532-pound plate of hummus.
In 2009, Fadi Abboud — the minister of tourism — led Lebanon to break the world record for making the largest tub of hummus in the world. At the time, Abboud was also chairman of the Lebanese Industrialists Association. “A group of us just came from a food exhibition in France. There they were telling us that hummus is an Israeli traditional dish,” he says. “I mean, the world now thinks that Israel invented hummus.”
Abboud could not let that stand. “I thought the best way to tell the world that the hummus is Lebanese is to break the Guinness Book of Records.”
