July 30, 2019 34 By Kailee Schamberger



There are numerous world records out there
and we have all heard of at least one of them. Some are common, while others are pretty
rare and strange. Today, we count ten of the strangest world
records. #1 Largest thriller dance On August 29th 2009, 13,597 Michael Jackson
fans all met up in Mexico city and excitedly performed the dance routine to 'Thriller'
at the same time. A well known Michael Jackson impersonator
led the whole performance and many people also dressed like Michael or dressed like
the zombies seen in the music video. This mass dance was performed just 2 months
after Jackson passed away, which would have been his 51st Birthday. The dedicated fans now hold the Guinness world
record for the largest group to dance to the song 'Thriller' simultaneously in one place. #2 Biggest natural breasts 57 year old, glamour model Annie Hawkins from
Atlanta, Georgia, has held the world record for the biggest, natural breasts since 1999. Hawkins has to wear the biggest US bra size
made which is a 52l. Her measurement under her breast is 109 centimetres
and each breast weighs approximately 56 pounds or 25kg. In third grade, Hawkins had to wear an adult
sized bra and this is when she noticed that her breasts were bigger than her other female
classmates. She claims that she has never suffered from
back ache and will never consider having breast reduction surgery. #3 Longest fingernails Christine Walton, a forty five year old singer
from Las Vegas, Nevada, holds the record for the longest fingernails on a pair of female
hands. Unbelievably, Christine claims she has not
cut her nails in over 26 years! Her finger nails measured at an incredible
12ft 1 inches on her right hand and 11ft 10 inches on her left hand. Christine claims that she never intended to
let her nails grow so long, but she was too busy in her life to maintain them. She also says that her nails have not stopped
her from living a normal live. Christine took the world record title from
former record holder Lee Redmond, who grew her nails for over 30 years but lost them
when she was involved in a car accident in 2009. #4 Naked Roller coaster This next world record involved a roller coaster
and a bunch of naked people. One day in 2010, in the South East of England,
over a hundred adventurous people of all ages, turned up to ride on a roller coaster at Adventure
Island.. but they were all missing something – clothing. The group travelled from many different parts
of the United Kingdom in order to complete this world record. They all appeared to have a lot of fun, and
raised over 22,000 pounds for a breast cancer charity. This record has yet to be beaten, but I guess
it's got to be tricky to manage an event with more than a hundred and two naked people.. #5 The Strangest Diet Michel Lotito, a Frenchman who also went by
the name Monsieur Mangetout, holds the world record for the strangest and craziest diet. For forty eight years, Lotito consumed an
enormous amount of glass, metal and rubber. He started this bizarre diet in 1966, when
he was 16 years old, due to suffering from a mental disorder known as Pica. This is where people crave non-food items. His meals consisted of various bicycles, chandeliers,
Televisions, beds, skis, a computer and even a small Cessna aircraft. Pretty much anything that wasn't food. In fact, in his life time he was able to consume
15 supermarket trolleys and is the only person in history who has ever been able to consume
a whole coffin.. by 1997 it was predicted that Lotito had eaten nearly 9 pounds of metal. He passed away in 2007 due to natural causes
at the age of 57. #6 Stretchiest Skin Garry Turner from Lincolnshire, England, holds
the record for the worlds most stretchiest skin. Turner has a rare disorder known as Ehlers
Danlos Syndrome. This is a collection of conditions that affect
connective tissues. As a result, he is able to stretch his stomach
to an astonishing 6.2 inches and the majority of the rest of his body is just as stretchy. His bizarre ability was shown on the set of
'Guinness World Records: Primetime' in 1999 and in many interviews since. Turners skin is so stretchy, that he is actually
able to take the skin from his neck and pull it over his jaw! #7 The hairiest family There's a family of around 30 people from
Mexico who suffer from a rare condition called Congenital Generalised Hypertrichosis. This condition is caused by genetic mutations
which causes an increase in facial or torso hair.. The men in the family have extremely thick
hair which covers over 95 percent of their body. while the female family members, have a light-to-medium coat of hair on their bodies. This condition has has affected 5 generations
of the family so far. many of the male members have been part of
numerous freak shows and circuses and around the world. The family were awarded the Guinness world
record for being 'the hairiest family' in February of 2000. #8 Most piercings in a lifetime Elaine Davidson, a Brazilian born nurse who
lives in Edinburgh, Scotland absolutely loves piercings. In fact, she holds the word record for the
most piercings ever. She currently has an astounding 9,800+ piercings
all over her body. It was 13 years ago when the the Guinness
Book of Records acknowledged her achievement. She had 462 piercings in total at that time. About 192 of those piercings were in her face. Currently, most of her piercings are not in
her face, but are in other parts of her body, including her intimate parts. Davidson said in an interview, that she loves
to feel pain which is why she can't stop getting piercings, she also reportedly enjoys laying
on beds of nails, as well as walking on broken glass and fire. #9 Largest flesh tunnel Kalawelo Kaiwi, a tattoo and body-modification
artist from Hawaii is known for having the largest non-surgically made flesh tunnels or
stretched earlobes. The Hilo Natural Health Clinic in Hawaii measured
the flesh tunnels in 2014 and they came to 10.5 centimetres or 4.14 inches. This is large enough that a clenched fist
can fit through. It has been claimed that there are other people
with bigger flesh tunnels, however Kalawelo is the only one who has been fully verified. As well as his strange looking earlobes, he
also has many piercings, tattoos (including his eyebrows), sub dermal horns in his head
and even split his own tongue using dental floss. Kalawelo was awarded the Guinness world record
in August 2015. #10 The worlds Loudest Penis Micronecta scholtzi are extremely small freshwater
insects, which are usually found in lakes, ponds and rivers in Europe and measure at
only 2mm in length. Unbelievably, They were recently given the
record for the 'world loudest penis'. The Micronecta scholtzi are a species of water
boatman, in the family Corixidae. They must rub their penises against their
abdomen in order to attract females. This is called 'stridulation'. Whilst they do this, they create a really,
loud mating noise which sounds similar to chirping. It can be up to 99.2 decibels which has been
described as the equivalent to sitting in the front row listening to a loud orchestra
playing or to the volume of standing 15 metres away from a passing freight train. Although most of the volume is lost due to
being in the water, These insects can still be heard from the bottom of a pond, by people
walking along the shore. Thanks for watching! Please Subscribe to FactFaction, to see more videos like this!
