World's Hairiest Girl

Followers of Guinness World Data will likely be no stranger to the concept of hypertrichosis - the healthcare term for excessive hairiness. Famously, the Mexican family members that includes brothers circus performers Larry and Danny Gomez comprises at least 19 members all with thick hair covering their faces and torso. So when we heard about a youthful woman in Thailand with an all-over covering of lengthy hair, we had been at the very least ready and prepared to welcome her to the Guinness Planet Documents family.

Supatra "Nat" Sasuphan contacted us through her father, and it absolutely was clear on seeing pictures of that she could well be a contender for that class of hairiest child. To assess the degree of hairiness, scientists use the Ferriman Gallwey technique. With this technique, the quantity of hair is assessed on 9 distinct components on the body - upper lip, chin, chest, again, abdomen, arm, forearm, thigh, and reduced leg. To be able to make an official measurement, Guinness Globe Records made the decision to invite Nat and her family to Rome in Italy, exactly where she could be assessed about the set of our Tv present, Lo Present dei Record.

Meeting Nat was one of the numerous highlights in the indicate for on-screen adjudicator, Marco Frigatti. “She’s a exceptional small girl,” says Marco. “She’s proud of who she is and desires to be treated similar to everyone else. She’s not the one using the dilemma - it’s only those who deal with her in different ways who’ve got the difficulty.”

And Nat agrees. “I don’t feel any distinct to anyone else, and I’ve received a lot of pals at college.” Now a superstar, she’s starting to delight in her fame, and was thrilled by the opportunity to go to a foreign nation. “It’s seriously fun and thrilling,” she advised us, “and it is my 1st time on a airplane. I’ve in no way been outside Thailand.” But her most exciting encounter was the moment she was crowned Hairiest Youngster. “Being hairy tends to make me unique,” she said, incorporating: “This the happiest day of my existence!”

91 Year Old Man Rappelled across a 1200 Feet Deep Valley set Limca Book of Record

Age is no limit for Narayan Krishna Mahajan.

The ninety-one-year old set a new high inspiration for people of all age groups by climbing a mountain 3,500 above sea level without any help or assistance, but for a walking stick as an occasional aid.

He tied himself to ropes, and rappelled from the top of the peak to the peak of another hill in India's western state of Maharashtra on Sunday (February 20).

Mahajan said that he performed the adventure to instil the new age youngsters to be motivated to engage in outdoor sports and actions.

'I don't consider myself as old, because I believe that if one's attitude is strong, the body would also be fit. The body should be maintained healthy since childhood. I have done this to boost the morale of the youngsters and they don't get scared and participate in such activities,' Narayan Krishna Mahajan said.

Mahajan said that he was not aiming to set a world record but only with an intention to encourage people to have a healthy and active lifestyle.

'Don't sit within the confines of your house, before the computer and television. Come out on the ground and play games like hockey, football, go for trekking, climb mountains and stay healthy. Then you will stay healthy at old age as well,'

Smokey - World Loudest Purr Cat set Guinness World Record

A purring cat is music to the ears for most cat-lovers. However, to Ruth Adams and family of the United Kingdom, their short-haired feline Smokey’s purrs are more like rock music to the ears.

Adopted from a local rescue-center, Smokey’s loud purring reportedly measured as high as 92 decibels, while an average cat purr measures only about 25 decibels. To put the purr volume in perspective, a typical home stereo listening level is 80 decibels and a subway train measures in at around 100 decibels. According to Smokey’s family, although endearing, the purring can by annoying when watching television, especially during dramatic scenes.

Ruth and Mark Adams of England think that their cat, Smokey, could very well be the world's loudest cat. According to the Daily Mail, the cat's noisy purr clocks in at 92 decibels up close and 80 decibels when five feet away. 92 decibels is equivalent to a lawnmower or hair dryer and the average cat purrs at 25 decibels, the Telegraph reports.

So is Smokey the world's loudest cat? Guinness has a category in place, but hasn't received any entries until now. "If Smokey can purr at over 80dB it would be an astonishing feat," a spokesman told the Daily Mail.

The only time purr-producing Smokey is quiet is when she is asleep. “She even manages to purr while she eats” comments Ruth. For official bragging rights of having the world’s loudest cat, the Adams family has sent an application to the Guinness World Records.

Fastest Car On Ice

On 10 February 2011, I was in Oulu, Finland, to witness Juha Kankkunen’s attempt to break his own Guinness World Records achievement for the fastest car on ice. Mr Kankkunen - four times world rally champion- was attempting to break his own record, set in 2007 of 199.83 mph (321.6 kmph) in a Bentley Continental GT. For this record attempt, the chosen car was a Bentley Continental Supersports convertible.

With temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celcius, sudden snow blizzards and potentially dangerous crosswinds, reaching the required speed and keeping the car under control was going to be a tall order. A 16.5 km track had been cut in the frozen sea, with 1 km precisely measured halfway along, over which the maximum speed would be recorded. To allow for favourable winds in either direction, Mr Kankkunen would have to drive in both directions along the track, with an average speed taken.

After some tests had been performed, the attempt was underway. I watched in amazement as Mr Kankkunen brought the car up to speed. As he passed the start of the 1 km the sound was more like that of an aeroplane than a car! At that extreme speed, the kilometre was quickly crossed, and Mr Kankkunen turned the car around for his second run to complete the challenge.

A few moments later Mr Kankkunen returned to the camp to hear the verdict. The speed recorded was a breathtaking 205.48 mph (330.695 kmph)!! An amazing new Guinness World Records achievement!

New Ski Flying World Record Set at 808.73 Feet

IT TAKES A BIG HILL to break a big record, and the Norwegians are nothing if not committed to big ski jumping hills. Or rather, sky flying, cause they’re different forms of the same idea, with different gear and different hills. And really, who wants to jump when you can fly? The new Vikersundbakken ski flying hill just opened for business, and within its first week saw two world records set, including this one by Johan Remen Evensen, who flew a resickulous 808.72 feet.

Thai Couples Break Longest Kiss Guinness World Record

A Thai couple has made history with the longest kiss ever during a Valentine's Day "kissathon" after they locked lips for 46 hours, 24 minutes and nine seconds.

Organizers of the event, which took place at a southern beach resort town, claim it marked the longest recorded smooch in history.

"We didn't think we would find anybody that could break the record," CBS News quoted Somporn Naksuetrong, the manager of Pattaya's Louis Tussaud's Waxworks museum, which organized the competition, as saying.

Fourteen couples had started off the contest at 6 a.m. on February 13, and by February 14 afternoon, half had already beaten the record and were still smooching away on the corridor of an oceanside shopping mall in Pattaya.

A Bangkok couple, Ekkachai and Laksana Tiranarat, emerged as the winner, and they were awarded a diamond ring worth 50,000 Thai Baht (1,606 dollars), and a cash prize of 100,000 Baht (3,213 dollars).

According to Guinness World Records, whose officials will have to verify the latest milestone for it to become official, the previous record of just over 32 hours had been set by a couple in Germany in 2009.

The rule for the kissathon is that couples should lock lips all the time, and if they wish to have a drink they have to do so using straws while continuing the kiss.

And if they wish to use the bathroom, they have to continue embracing each other, while accompanied by contest monitors. But the harshest rule was no sitting or sleeping.

1898 World’s Oldest Wedding Cake set World Record

A whole wedding cake is really the last thing that one should dare to preserve - even for posterity’s sake.

More so because the title of the world’s oldest complete wedding cake is already held by an ornately decorated confection, that is still intact after 113 years!

Made in 1898 during Queen Victoria’s reign, this cake is still in one piece despite a large crack in the icing caused by a Second World War bomb blast.

Once white, it has browned with age. But despite this, the rich fruit cake inside is said to be still moist, reports the Daily Mail.

The confectionery was originally on display in the window of a family bakery, in Basingstoke, Hampshire, which closed in 1964.

It had been moved to a loft, where it remained for almost a century, until the baker's daughter donated it to the little known Willis Museum in Basingstoke

Museum curator Sue Tapliss said: “It has been stored in unfavourable environmental conditions, leading to the cake heating and causing the sugars to seep through to the icing, giving it a darker colour.

“The baker's daughter, who was unmarried, donated the cake towards the end of her life due to fears someone might discover it in her attic and think she had been jilted at the altar.”

Tapliss hopes “that the cake can be enjoyed for a further 113 years.”

Durham rowers break Atlantic crossing world record

A Wimbledon rower who smashed a trans-Atlantic world record on Monday has lost the title less than 24 hours later.

David Hosking skippered the six rowers of Team Hallin across the ocean in just under 32 days – beating the previous record for the 3,000-mile crossing by one day.

But yesterday rival boat the Sara G landed with a better time, taking the title from Mr Hosking’s celebrating crew.

Team Hallin, who are aiming to raise £60,000 for armed forces charity Combat Stress, set off from Tenerife in their trimaran boat Hallin Marine on January 6.

Hours after landing Mr Hosking, a 55-year-old former Royal Navy commander from Wilton Crescent, said: “Everyone has been amazing, our bodies are wrecked. It was stunning teamwork that saw us set a new world record, and the culmination of two years of planning.”

And on the day of arrival crew member Chris Covey proposed to his girlfriend Susie Easton, surprising her with a ring he had carried with him for the whole voyage.

The Sara G, which had six crew members from Britain, Malta and Ireland, left from Tarfaya in Morocco on January 5, but as the two boats went by different routes across the ocean, their times were used to find average speeds.

This calculation handed the Sara G an average speed of 3.9mph – compared to Team Hallin’s 3.4mph – the record and the Ocean Rowing blue riband trophy, which is adjudicated by the Ocean Rowing Society.

Thomas Edison World Records - World's Longest Lasting Light Bulb

Today Google Doodle marks the 164th Birthday of Thomas Edison. On the occasion of Thomas Edison 164th Birthday the Google logo portrays some of the famous inventions of the scientist. This includes phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb.

The world's longest lasting light bulb is the Centennial Light located at 4550 East Avenue, Livermore, California. It is maintained by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department. The fire department claims that the bulb is at least 109 years old and has only been turned off a handful of times. The bulb has been noted by The Guinness Book of World Records, Ripley's Believe It or Not!, and General Electric as being the world's longest-lasting light bulb.

While it might seem astonishing that so many longest-lasting light bulbs have been so infrequently turned off, this is the precise reason for their longevity. Most of the wear and tear that leads to burnouts in incandescent light bulbs is caused by turning them on and off, not by burning them. Each time the bulb is turned on and off, the filament is heated and cooled. This causes the material of the filament to expand and contract, in turn causing tiny stress cracks to develop. The more the light is turned on and off, the larger these cracks grow, until eventually the filament breaks at some point, causing the light to burn out.

Thomas Edison designed a bulb that was supposed to last forever, called the Eternal Light, and turned it on on October 22, 1929. The bulb is located in the Memorial Tower at the Edison Memorial Museum in Menlo Park, New Jersey. The tower fell down in 1937, but the bulb's power was supposedly uninterrupted, according to General Electric, and continued to burn while a second tower was constructed. According to museum curator Jack Stanley, the bulb is fake, consisting of a hollow bulb illuminated by a series of automobile headlights mounted in the display's base

World First Transsexual Air Hostesses ‎Hire By Thai Airlines

If you still believe there are only two sexes, you’re living in the dark ages. There isn’t just males and females anymore… there’s a third sex too.

They’re called ladyboys, and as the name suggests, they are men who either disguise themselves as women or undergo sex reassignment surgery to become women.

And there’s a good reason for why ladyboys have become so popular: money.

You see, in southeast Asia, women having been making a ton of money for a long time thanks to an abundant sex industry. Well, the guys wanted to get in on the action too, so about a decade ago, many men started changing their appearance to look like women, and they’ve been fooling chubby white guys who travel to Thailand for cheap sex ever since.

But once they’re over the hill (that’s like 19-years old in the Asian sex industry), they have to look for other work. However, most ladyboys find it difficult to get a legit job.

That’s why it was such a surprise when a start-up airline in Thailand called P.C. Air became the first airline to hire ladyboy flight attendants.

Six ladyboys were hired, including the winner of 2007 Miss Tiffany Universe, which is a transsexual beauty pageant that’s watched by over 15 million people in Thailand.

The flight attendants will be required to wear a gold name tag that identifies them as ladyboys, but it’s not like you wouldn’t be able to tell just by looking at them. Take a look at this picture and you’ll see what we mean:

#2 is the only one that might be able to pass as a woman — if you’re wearing bear goggles. But the knuckles on #1 and #3 and the wide jaw on #4 are too mannish to ignore.

Blood Donation Logo by Toffees Limca Book Record set by Madurai School

Three thousand students of Dolphin Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Madurai, administered a pledge on Blood Donation which got them a place in the Limca Book of Records.
The highlight of the pledge was their laborious effort in designing the Blood Donation logo with multicolour toffees on the ground covering an area of five metres width and five metres breadth.
Toffees weighing 250 kg and numbering one lakh were used for making the logo.
The students took three long hours to design the logo and inscribe the caption “Give Blood Give Life,” thus promoting the novel idea of blood donation.
The effort which took place in the premises saw enthusiastic students joining hands with members of the Lions Club, parents, teaching and non-teaching staff.
The event was inaugurated by school correspondent, A.R. Ramanathan, in the presence of Roselin Mary, Inspector of Matriculation Schools, Madurai, V.R. Chinna Arunachalam, Lions Club Governor, and A. Padma, Principal, Dolphin Matric H.S. School.

Ms. Roselin Mary in her address appreciated the novel effort of the students and called the other schools to emulate this attempt in creating awareness about blood donation.
The other speakers asked the students to go in for a Guinness World Record and promised to extend their support for this noble cause.

World's Largest Mass Wedding in India set Guinness Book of World Record

A mass wedding, organised by Badnera MLA Ravi Rana, literally turned out to be a massive affair in Ratnagiri, maharashtra, India.

At least 3,600 couples including Rana and his Southern siren wife Navneet Kaur from different faiths tied the nuptial knot at the event 2nd February 2011.

The ceremony has been certified as the world's largest mass wedding in the Guinness World Records and Limca Book of Records.

The VVIPs , including chief minister Prithviraj Chavan, Baba Ramdev and actor Vivek Oberoi, also attended the ceremony and blessed the newlyweds.

MiD DAY had earlier reported that the Badnera MLA was planning a mass wedding for 2,100 couples, but the organiser himself was taken aback by the overwhelming response.

Rana said, "I am overwhelmed by the response. I had planned the mass marriage thinking about a large number of people who cannot afford to bear the expenses of a marriage on their own.

Such moves also help strengthen the secular fabric of the society.

I am really happy about the fact that many blind and physically challenged people, who otherwise would have remained single all their life, got married at the event."

Representatives of the Guinness World Record and Limca Book of Records were also present to register the names of the participants and do the headcount.

The earlier record of a mass marriage is of 1,350 couples getting hitched in a single day.

Around two lakh people had flocked in from different parts of the country to witness this massive wonder.

What an absolutely incredible experience! Today, I participated in the world's largest mass marriage ceremony 3,634 couples from poor families! I can't even begin to explain how amazing it felt...such fantastic social work, true national integration!!! - Vivek Oberoi

Six Hours With Terrorists - India´s first One Shot Movie set World Record

The action thriller, directed by Karan Kashyap and produced by Arun S Deddhar (Star Smile Productions) has already been authenticated by officials of the Limca Book of Records on the final day of shoot on January 31.

It now awaits verification from Guinness Book of World Records officials. Preparation for the shoot took 60 days, including 54 days of acting workshop and five days of on-location rehearsals complete with lights, costumes and camera at Neil Villa Bungalow in Vasai, outskirts of Mumbai.

The previous records have been held by Russian film; 'Russian Arc', the duration of which was one hour 38 minutes and British film- 'PVC' for one hour 84 minutes. Indian TV show 'CID' also had a record of 111 minutes on an uncut scene.

To achieve the target, cameraman Vishal Singh used a Sony EX 3- HD digital camera with 2K resolution, weighing around eight KGs. This camera is substantially lighter than regular cameras required for film making and the advantage of using a chip instead of tapes which would have interrupted the shooting. No cameras like a steadycam were used.

Announcing the completion of the shoot here last evening, producer Deddhar said at the time of reading the script it was decided to also go for the record.

''We Indians are capable of setting new records too. Moreover, it's a film that people will want to watch and enjoy too. It will go down well with the younger audiences. We will go for post production work like dubbing and colour correction, and should be ready for release by March 2011,'' he said.

Speaking to UNI, director Karan Kashyap said shooting the film called for excellent coordination with cameraman Vishal Singh, endless rehearsals and lot of running around due to demand of the script.

''The story is more important than the record, and we wanted the film to be technically sound. It was a challenge to shot a film that had no 'cut to' parts. The film is reality based with dark humour and a twist that will shock the audience. We only have one song at the end of the film,'' he said.

World Largest Mosaic Ever by Recycled Mardi Gras Beads Contends Guinness World Record

Stephán Wanger has started, to create the largest mosaic ever made out of Mardi Gras beads. The size of the work is 8 feet tall by 30 feet wide and will contain over a million recycled Mardi Gras beads. The “Skyline” will be unveiled at the JW Marriott New Orleans, on April 27, 2011.

About 97 % of all beads that Stephán is using, are recycled. He continues to create huge mosaics that will help promote his adopted hometown New Orleans.

In other words, a busy river scene with the beautiful skyline of New Orleans in the background.

"I have always wanted to create a skyline mosaic to complement my existing pieces and I believe this project will be the perfect attempt for competing for a Guinness World Record," says Stephán Wanger from his gallery located at 1914 Magazine St., in New Orleans. The community can help by signing this art work as Stephán will bead out every person’s signature on this gigantic postcard to the world.

Since Mardi Gras Season 2011 is almost upon us, the attempt at the Guinness World Record will be timely. Stephán plans to unveil the work in May 2011. He knows what it takes as he has already completed several massive mosaic murals that are on display at his gallery.

Karen Benrud from Cafe Du Monde who helps Stephán cutting beads says, "Stephán's goals are very simple, he is trying to get the beads off the streets, recycle them into amazing artworks, and teach children the skill in order to leave a legacy - while promoting New Orleans at the same time."

The record breaking mosaic will be part of the "A Million Greetings from New Orleans” exhibit that Stephán has been working on since 2006. The exhibit will eventually tour Europe in 2012 to further promote New Orleans and increase tourism to the city. By signing this gigantic postcard Stephán hopes to create awareness for recycling Mardi Gras beads.

These games may well turn into an yearly occasion due to the amazing reputation, and some participants are still hoping that a different school will respond to their defeat and continue the feud.

"We thought [2,012] was surely an achievable number [...] and also it doesn't blow out the report as substantially as we perhaps could which might maybe be encouraging some levels of competition - giving the Americans a bone," Tighe stated.

We will only wait and see how UCI along with the relaxation from the planet reacts towards the U of A's accomplishment, as 1 member on the Gold

Best Selling Two Seat Sports Car 2011 Guinness Record set by Mazda MX-5

Total production of Mazda Motor Corporation's MX-5 sports car (known as the Mazda Roadster in Japan) reached 900,000 units on February 4, 2011. This significant milestone was achieved 21 years and 10 months after mass production of the first-generation MX-5 commenced in April 1989. The MX-5 was initially certified by Guinness World Records as the world's "Best selling two-seat sports car" when production reached 531,890 units in May 2000. Guinness updated the record when production passed 700,000 and, later, 800,000 units. Currently, Mazda is reapplying to Guinness World Records to have the record updated to 900,000 units.

During the 1960s and 1970s, numerous lightweight and fun-to-drive sports cars offered nimble handling and free-spirited open-air motoring. In the 1980s, Mazda decided to resurrect this spirit with a new roadster for the modern age. Using the latest engineering techniques, Mazda developed the MX-5 and announced it in February 1989 as a reminder that driving could still be fun despite ever-stricter safety and quality standards. To this day, the MX-5 remains the longest enduring nameplate in Mazda's global lineup.

Nobuhiro Yamamoto, program manager of the current MX-5, said, "Since Mazda launched the original MX-5, it has undergone two complete product redesigns and a series of upgrades. Its enduring success is due to the strong support it enjoys from MX-5 fans around the world. Going forward, I will strive to keep the MX-5's spirit alive while evolving it into a car that will be loved by even more people."

Mazda's senior managing executive officer in charge of development, Seita Kanai, said, "More than 20 years have passed since the first-generation Mazda MX-5 was born. During this time, society and vehicles themselves have changed significantly. Responding to environmental issues and the depletion of the Earth's natural resources has become increasingly important for all automakers. As part of its environmental efforts, Mazda announced its new SKYACTIV technologies last year. Currently, we are pushing forward with development of future products that will incorporate these technologies. Many of the elements that go into our SKYACTIV technologies, such as comprehensive weight reduction, grew from the long years of development work that have gone into the MX-5. Indeed, the guiding principle behind the SKYACTIV technologies - to build cars that are fun to drive - is perfectly embodied by the MX-5."

"As we head toward the next production milestone of one million units," Kanai continued, "Mazda is committed to further evolving the MX-5. We will refine its fun-to-drive character and further enhance its environmental and safety capabilities. As Mazda passes its 91st birthday, we are turning our sights toward our 100th anniversary. In the years ahead, we will continue to cherish the MX-5, alongside its loyal fan base, as the symbol of the Mazda brand."
