Top 5 Useless World Records

Top 5 Useless World Records

Hey guys, it’s Dean from Diagonal View and
these are the 5 Most Useless World Records. But firstly, let me introduce you to Mr. Ashrita
Furman from New York – also known as Mr Guinness World Record. In fact, to this date, Mr Furman
has set 551 official Guinness World Records and holds around 200 of them. With his record-breaking career spanning over
45 years, you can safely say that there are a handful of more questionable feats. 5. Balancing 76 Glasses on Your Chin Now, I’m not entirely sure when and how
this could be applied in a normal situation, but hey, what a great party trick, right? How many people do you know that can balance
one glass, let alone 76 on their chin? I just feel sorry for the person before who
managed 75. As you can see, it doesn’t look like an
easy feat. Steady, steady Ha, imagine if they all fell and smash..oh.
Okay, moving on… 4. Rolling An Apple With Your Nose Going boldly where nose-body (see what I did
there) has gone before, Ashrita, complete with knee pads for safety, takes his mark,
braces himself, and goes for it! Again, I’m not entirely sure who conceived
this extremely niche skill, i’m starting to think it was Ashrita himself, but by god
is it useless. With the determination of an athlete, he pushes
on, nose push after nose push. Come on Ashrita! Useless or not, it certainly put a smile on
one man’s face! Ergh, exhausting just to watch. 3. Balancing a pole on your chin There is literally no stopping what our man
Furman can do. Here we see him do battle with his chin yet again. This time he tackles a
16 metre pole. Unlike previously with the glasses, Ashrita
pulls it off and breaks the World Record for tallest object balanced on your chin! What
a guy! 2. Grape Catching Now here is a world record of which I’m
sure quite a few of us would assume we would be good at: Catching as many grapes as possible
in your mouth in a minute. Ashrita almost robotically catches them with
such skill and precision, barely moving from his ninja-like position. Although he does at times look like the maniac
on the corner of the street attempting to steal the world’s oxygen, one gulp at a
time. Props goes to his thrower friend too. Mr Unstoppable breaks the world record here
with 68 in a minute, eclipsing the previous record of 55. 1. Underwater Juggling I’m not entirely sure how you could practise
for this record. Possibly juggling his balls in the shower? Who knows? It seems that this one-man-multi-world-record-holder
has no limit, no fear and no sense of ridiculousness when it comes to aiming for the top! Draped in diving gear, Ashrita attempts to
juggle balls while underwater. At the bottom of a giant aquarium tank, he’s
surrounded by sealife and gazed upon by a crowd of spectators on the other side of the
glass. All seems to be going well for our guy…
until a certain jealous shark comes to ruin his attempt in return for Ashrita hogging
the limelight! Oh well. So there you have it. What an amazing guy!
These are only five of the hundreds of world records he’s broken. Some may call them
useless, and hey, maybe they are. Yeah, that’s it. Hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to check
