Chris Walton,

47, holds the title for the world’s longest fingernails after she stopped clipping them in 1993. Walton’s bizarre nails curl in all directions, yet the mother and grandmother cooks and cleans, and can even play the piano and use a computer. Her amazing dedication to her nails was officially recognized by the 2012 edition of the Guinness Records Book.

Shout-out to this dog for having a long-ass tail

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.

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.

Madam C.J. Walker born Sarah Breedlove (December 23, 1867 – May 25, 1919) in Delta, Louisiana. Walker was an African-American businesswoman, hair care entrepreneur, tycoon and philanthropist. Her fortune was made by developing and marketing a hugely successful line of beauty and hair products for black women, under the company she founded Madam C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company. The Guinness Book of Records cites Walker as the first female, black or white, who became a millionaire by her own achievements.

They call it “The Hummus Wars.”

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.”

Artist Spotlight: Omar Morales

Omar Morales is the creator, writer, self-publisher, marketer and eternal sufferer of the original graphic novel CruZader™: Agent of the Vatican – funded on Kickstarter in 2013 and self-published in 2014.

CruZader also holds the distinction as the Guinness World Records “Largest Comic Book Published,” awarded in 2014.

You can find him on Twitter with the handle @TheCruZader.




What story are you working on for the book?

Moon Girl.

What public domain characters are you using and what’s the best thing about them?

Moon Girl, and her caretaker, Star. The best thing about them is their purity and optimistic outlook on humanity. They come from this outer space utopia - a subterranean moon society that is ancient and highly advanced, very different from Earth, and yet we can identify with their humanity in every way possible.

What was the first comic you remember reading that really hooked you into them?

I was honestly hooked into comics by re-runs of 1960s Marvel cartoons that would play at odd hours on obscure, non-English-Speaking TV channels. I would catch single-cell animations of Hulk, Iron-Man, Thor … and my favorite: Captain America and that mighty shield! Of course the 1967 Spider-Man re-runs got me into buying Spider-Man comics, coloring books, action figures that would shoot liquid webs, and all sorts of other Marvel merchandise. I was a dyed-in-the-wool Marvel kid for sure.

What attracted you to the Not Forgotten project?
I am convinced that there is a modern market for new stories told in the retro, golden-age style of comics. Nostalgia is big. Why not go back to the beginnings of when comics were created - a pop-culture phenomenon that still thrives today? When I heard the pitch for “Not Forgotten,” to use public domain heroes in an old-school anthology, I was sold! After all, it was this style of comics that inspired George Lucas and other legendary storytellers. I still remember how thrilled I was to type this phrase into my pitch to our editors: “a retro-futuristic adventure tale chock full o’ thought bubbles, ray guns and shiny, metallic clothing.” Pew! Pew!
