Man With World’s Longest Nails Sold His Nails, Got Enough Dough To Retire

You have heard of many ways to plan for retirement, but I bet you didn’t see this coming. One 82-year-old Indian man, who was the record holder of the world’s longest fingernails, had his long-ass nails lobbed and apparently, sold to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not for “enough for retirement” (actual among is not disclosed, btw). Anywho, Shridhar Chillal went under a mini circular saw to remove his super long nail he had lovingly cared for over the last 66 years.

Snoop Dogg Mixes His Way To Guinness World Records With Giant Cocktail

When it comes pop stars and world records, one would expect things like “most album sold,” “songs on the top chart for the longest period of time,” et cetera, but in the case of Snoop Dogg, it was all about Gin and Juice. The American rapper/songwriter/record producer/actor has bagged itself a Guinness World Record for whipping up the world’s biggest glass of gin and juice live on stage at the BottleRock Napa Valley festival in California late last month.

Meet The Canadian Who Has The Most Marvel Comic Characters Tattooed On The Body

While some Marvel fans expressed their love for comic characters by collecting action figures, one man from Canada, Rick Scolamiero, has other idea of how to express his love for Marvel comic characters: by tattooing 31 figures from his favorite comic book universe on his body.

G-Shock Bagged Its First Guinness Title After A 25-Ton Truck Rolled Over It

We all know how tough CASIO G-Shock watches are, but to the folks over at CASIO, it ain’t good enough to be known as tough if it does not have a formal recognition, such as one from the world’s foremost authority on cataloguing and verification of world records, Guinness World Records. For decades, G-Shock watches are synonymous with toughness and therefore, they are the go-to super rugged timepiece, but it is only in recent months that it has put one of its watch to test, by taking on the challenge for the title of Heaviest vehicle to drive over a watch.

Drone Racing League Built The Fastest Racing Drone, Made World Record

It is official. The world’s fastest drone is the RacerX, built by Drone Racing League (DRL). RacerX set the Guinness World Records for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter as it swooped back and forth across a measurement course of 328 feet (100 meters), clocking in a mind-bending average top speed of 163.5 miles per hour (263 km/h!). This record-making quadcopter was the handiwork Ryan Gury, DRL’s Director of Product, who was backed by DRL’s very own team of expert drone engineers.

Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Set New Record Towing A 285-Ton A380 Jetliner

Over 500 horsepower and no less 1,570 lb-ft (2,129 Nm) of torque. Those are what it takes to tow the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, but little did we know that a luxury vehicle like the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel can do the same. Granted, while it can, it obviously isn’t meant to do this on daily basis, much less doing it several times in a day. However, that didn’t stop Porsche from using the marque’s relatively puny 4.8 meters (16 feet) vehicle to tow the massive 73 meters (240 feet), 284 tons Air France A-380 out of Air France state-of-the-art engineering hangar at Paris Charles de Gaulie Airport and in the process, setting a new world record for the Heaviest aircraft pull by a production car last month, on April 21, 2017.

it’s Official. Colin Furze Has Just Build The World’s Fastest Bumper Car

The things that madcap British garage inventor, Colin Furze, built certainly are ridiculous enough to quality them a place on the Guinness World Records and he certainly got recognized for some of the works, including the largest bonfire (2006), the longest motorcycle (2008), the fastest speed on a mobility scooter (2010), the fastest pram (2012), and now, he can add world’s fastest bumper car to his growing accolades. The BBC Worldwide sponsored bumper car, AKA dodgem, has made the run with Top Gear’s The Stig behind the wheel (or should we say, handlebar?) and in the process, setting the record of the world’s fastest bumper car.

Chevrolet Showoff 2017 Silverado HD’s Power With World Record Pull

If there’s anyway to convince potential truck buyers how bloody strong the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD truck is, it is to have a big-ass flag in tow and in the process, setting a new Guinness World Records for World’s Largest Flag Pulled by a Moving Vehicle. And that, my friend, was exactly what Chevy did. The record saw a 2017 Silverado HD powered by Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel motor with 445 horses and 910 lb-ft (1,234 Nm) pulled an enormous 3,200 square-foot (297 square-meter) American flag around the Texas Motor Speedway’s 1.5 mile oval.

I am sure most people are familiar with what cosplay is, but what you probably don’t know is, a well thought out and executed cosplay costume could land you with a recognition by the world leading international authority on cataloguing and verification of world records, Guinness World Records.

Gamers Broke World Record, Drove Virtual Ford GT For Over 48 Hours

The fame and fortune that comes with a prestigious racing event like the LeMans 24 may not be as awesome as those enjoyed by Formula 1 race drivers, but it is by no means less gruelling. In fact, it could be worst. Having just two or three drivers to endure a day of non-stop driving at immense speed is by no means an easy feat. It requires the same, if not more, physical and mental conditioning than Formula 1 and obviously, not everyone is cut out for it. So, if you dream of becoming a LeMans 24 race driver, there’s an easier way and that way is through video game. Continue reading Gamers Broke World Record, Drove Virtual Ford GT For Over 48 Hours
