[wpsm_dropcap]W[/wpsm_dropcap]orld Records are a measured or notable achievement for all of mankind on planet earth (assuming some of our readers are from distant planets). The Guiness Book of World Records evaluates global achievements form the worst and best extremes in the natural world. Here are 4 amazing world records and 1 very stupid world record:
[wpsm_numhead num=”4″ style=”2″ heading=”2″]13 year old is the youngest human to climb Mount Everest[/wpsm_numhead]
Mount Everest is the world’s tallest mountain reaching heights over 5.5 miles high or 8,848 meters high. The weather at the top of the mountain is so severe, wind speeds can reach over 200mph and temperatures below -80F.
In December of 2011, Jordan Romero became the youngest human being to have ever scaled the massive mountain (at the age of 13). Jordan Romero has not only broke a barrier, he made history.
[wpsm_numhead num=”3″ style=”2″ heading=”2″]200 meters is the longest distance swam in one breath.[/wpsm_numhead]
Tom Sietas achieved the astonishing distance of 656 ft / 200 meters swimming underwater in only one breath. Thanks to a lot of training and dedication, Sietas has pushed the boundaries of physical endurance far beyond what was thought possible. See the Guinness entry for this challenge here.
[wpsm_numhead num=”2″ style=”2″ heading=”2″]The MOST mini-dominoes toppled is 2,000[/wpsm_numhead]
Patrick Sinner, a 17 year old boy from Germany, managed to lay 2.000 mini-dominoes in a line. It required a steady hand, precision and a lot of dedication and hard work to achieve this ‘perfection’. Today, Patrick holds over 3 world records in the domino section. You could say he is the Domino King.
[wpsm_numhead num=”1″ style=”2″ heading=”2″]5 phone books ripped in a minute, by a FEMALE[/wpsm_numhead]
Linsey Lindberg accomplished what many men cannot do. She managed to rip 5 phone books in just 1 minute. This is a strong example of will to show that us women are stronger than men.
THE NUMBER 1 DUMBEST WORLD RECORD EVER
[wpsm_numhead num=”5″ style=”2″ heading=”2″]1:46 is the longest time spinning a fidget spinner on the nose[/wpsm_numhead]
Fidget spinners are the newest trend. And “fidgeters” have found a way to play competitive games with each other; one game including longest time to spin a spinner on your nose. Leave it to the guys at BuzzFeedBlue to make a video on such a useless world record. Hiliarous.
Always remember that with dedication and hard work you can accomplish much more than you imagine :)
