I don’t know about you, but the Guinness Book of World Records continues to fascinate (and sometimes disturb) me with its share of bizarre and obscure world records. Of course, everyone knows about the Guinness World Records holders of the longest finger nails, longest hair, or most tattoos, but what about the many, many other records no one knows about? Here are the 25 mind blowing Guinness World Records you never heard of.
Most Big Macs Consumed
Calling Donald Gorske a fan of McDonald’s might be an understatement. Gorke holds the world record for most Big Macs consumed. Buying them in bulk, Donald eats about fourteen Big Macs each week and on August 24, 2016, he ate his 28,788th Big Mac.
Fastest Five Metres on Front Paws by a Dog
‘Konjo’ is no ordinary dog, able to run a five-metre on its front paws in 2.39 seconds.
You’ve never had a caffeine pick-me-up like this! Altoga, Italy made a 4,250 litre cup of cappuccino on October 20, 2013. It took 33 people and 9 coffee machines to make it happen.
Largest Disco Ball
Disco may be dead, but this disco ball sure isn’t. Achieved on September 7th, 2014, the town of Bestival in the United Kingdom lays claim to the largest disco ball at 10.33 meters.
Measuring at 10.1 centimeters, Nick Stoeberl’s insanely long tongue got the world record on November 27th, 2012.
