This week pokerstars have their Guinness World Record week so i had a look at some of the current Guiness World Records, not poker related, and some are fucking funny...
It's daft really, I think that it's good to know who the Worlds tallest man is, but he hasn't actually done anything to acheive that whilst it must be quite difficult to eat a 12" Pizza in 1 minute 45.37 seconds like Josh Anderson, which i think is fucking ridiculous..
So here are some of the records i found:
Ken Edwards - Most Cockroaches Eaten
Ken Edwards of Glossop, Derbyshire, England ate 36 cockroaches in one minute on the set of The Big Breakfast, London, England on March 5, 2001.
Why the fuck would you do that????
Elaine Esposito - Longest Coma
37 years then died....
How is this a good thing??? I never saw her get an award on Record Breakers
Michele Santelia - Most Books Typed Backwards
Michele Santelia (Italy) typed backwards 64 books (3,361,851 words, 19,549,382 characters) in their original languages including The Odyssey, Macbeth, The Vulgate Bible and the Guinness World Records Book 2002. Michele put together a 3,78 m (12 ft 4 in) high tower of the books typed. He completed typing backwards the volumes of the Dead Sea scrolls in Ancient Hebrew on 26 July 2007.
Hebrew is written backwards so does this mean he wrote them normally?!?!
Striker - Fastest Car Window opened By a Dog
The fastest time a dog has unwound a non-electric car window is 11.34 seconds and was achieved by Striker, a border collie owned and trained by Francis V. Gadassi (Hungary). The record was set on September 1, 2004 in Quebéc City, Canada
I'm sure my ex mrs opened one faster
Robert Foster - Breath Held Voluntarily
The USA's Robert Foster held his breath for 13mins 42.5secs in 1959
VOLUNTARILY!!!! hahahahahahahahahahah I want to know the record for non-voluntary breath holding....
So i hope pokerstars will be proud to sit amongst the ranks of "biggest cookie ever baked" and "Most people to irish dance at the same time" They did for the accolade of course, it had absolutely nothing with trying to generate more rake....
