Top 10 Stupidest World Records 1.Most number of candles extinguished by farts:
5 Gerard Jesse of the Philippines has broken
a world record by breaking wind. Mr. Jesse is seen in the video below blowing out 5 candles
with a series of farts, aided by a long tube and a very brave friend. 2.Hardest kick to the groin: 22 mph
This guy is nuts… literally! Kirby Roy is the recipient of the most painful award on
this list—hardest kick to the groin. Mr. Roy survived a 22 mph blow from American Gladiator/MMA
Justice Smith, with over 1,100 lbs of force. The video below explains the “science”
behind his cringe-inducing feat. 3.Loudest scream: 129 dB
This “talent” may be useful, but it’s still a stupid record: loudest scream. For
six years, the reigning Scream Queen was Annalisa Flannagan, a teacher in Northern Ireland,
who won the Guinness Record in 1994 by shouting “Quiet!” at 120.7 decibels, louder than
a jet engine. However, her record was eventually shattered by Jill Drake, a British teacher,
who shouted at 129 dB in 2000. 4.Fastest bed maker: 74 seconds
Andrea Warner, an English hotel manager, used her skills to nab the Stupidest Record for
Fastest King-Sized Bed Maker, clocking in at just 74 seconds. This included a fitted
sheet, top sheet, two pillowcases, a fully buttoned duvet, and bed runner. 5.Most Snails on Face: 43
Ok, an argument could be made that bed making or loud screaming could potentially be helpful,
but the rest of the records on this list are utterly useless. Fin Keheler, an 11-year-old
from Utah, nabbed the Stupid Record for Most Snails on Face. On his 11th birthday, he allowed
friends and neighbors to cover his head with the slimy creatures, who stayed there for
more than 10 seconds. They sent the record off to Guinness, but even they were too smart
to list such a useless achievement. 6.Most number of watermelons sliced open on
someone’s stomach in one minute: 48 Sometimes we wonder how anyone even thinks
of these contests. Guinness actually does have a category of “Most Watermelons Sliced
Open on a Stomach in One Minute.” This record involves using a machete to cleanly slice
the fruit in half while a very trusting person lies down and lends their stomach. The current
record was set in 2012 by Bipin Larkin and Ashrita Furman in New York, with a total of
48. We’d hate to see what happened to the losers. 7.Man Eats an Entire Cessna: 150 pieces
Frenchman Michel Lotito has earned his nickname of Monsieur Mangetout (“Mr. Eat-All”). Ever
since he was a teenager, he had a knack/desire for eating indigestible objects, consuming
things such as bicycles, televisions, and shopping carts by having them chopped into
tiny bits; he would eat a little at a time, washing the pieces down with mineral oil and
water. But his dumbest achievement is consuming an entire plane, piece by piece. The feat
took him two years (1978-1980). 8.Largest Dog Wedding: 178 couples
This stupid record really takes the (wedding) cake! In 2007, Jill Kobe presided over 178
canine nuptials, who said “I do” with a bark. The dogs had all met (and presumably
fallen in love) in a speed dating session before the ceremony. 9.Man spent 16 years typing out numbers from
one to one million Les Stewart was determined to be a world record
holder for something but didn’t have many talents, except for two: the ability to count
and an incredible amount of patience. The result may be the stupidest world record of
all time—Stewart typed out the numbers from one to one million. That’s right; he typed
“one; two; three; four; five; six; seven; eight; nine….” Until he reached “Nine
hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine; one million.” It took him
sixteen years, and seven months using seven typewriters, and one thousand ink ribbons
on nineteen thousand eight hundred ninety pages (see what he made us do?) 10.Man with most number of stupid world records
Finally, we’ll leave you with the King of all Stupid Records: Ashrita Furman. In fact,
he is in the Guinness Book of World’s Records for having the most World Records! These include
doing 27,000 jumping jacks, running the fastest mile with a baseball bat balanced on his hand,
and jumping on the world’s smallest pogo stick. In total, he has set 551 records. Ok, some
of these are actually pretty impressive. We salute you, Mr. Furman!
