Wonders will never cease indeed. The Guinness book of records is proof enough. It always surprises us with its wide range of funny, weird, and sometimes shocking records. Every year, we look forward to seeing what new thing is in the book. It is always interesting and that it why we are bringing to you a list of 8 of the weirdest Guinness world records of 2015. It was hard to settle on the eight but we found them pretty weird.
88.The largest electric guitar
This electric guitar got everyone by surprise because of its unique traits. It is the largest playable guitar in the world as of 2015. It has an incredible measurement of 43 feet, 7.5 inches tall; 16 feet, 5.5 inches wide’. In addition to its already astonishing characteristics, the guitar has a massive weight of 2000 pounds. Interestingly, the electric guitar was designed during a 1967 Gibson Flying V. it was built by students from Conroe Independent School District Academy of Science and Technology in Conroe, Texas in the USA. It is estimated that they spend about $3,000 U.S. dollars to build it.
This was actually somebody’s idea? So weird indeed. This Yo-Yo was declared the largest and as we can see, it is indeed humongous. It measures 11 feet and 9 inches. Unbelievably, it weighs about 4,620 pounds. Beth Johnson, an Ohio resident took the time to build it. She says that it took her an entire year plus six months to complete it. Believe it or not, the Yo-Yo is in good condition and is fully operational.
When we talk of American height, it is nothing compared to Broc Brown’s height. This 17 years old handsome teenager, from Jackson, Michigan, is 7 feet, 1.5 inches tall. He is basket baller who can dunk amazingly. The only challenge he has is his weight. Weird enough, this youngster wears size 24 athletic shoes, reportedly bigger than those worn by the famous Shaquille O’Neal.
5Largest male afro
Alan Edward Labbe comes from Massachusetts in the United States of America. He is the holder of the record for the largest male afro. How does a man grow all that hair comfortably is not the subject here. Alan managed to and he is now famous. His gigantic hairstyle measures 5.75 inches in height, 8.5 inches in width, and boasts a circumference of 5 feet and about 75 inches.
4Longest Usable Golf Club
You have never seen this in a golf pitch, right? This man named Karsten Maas from Denmark is a soul lover of the game. Indeed he is so thrilled by the golf game that he created the longest ‘usable’ golf club. It measures about 14 feet, 5 inches long. To top that up, the club can actually drive a ball 542 feet, 10.16 inches. This is certainly weird.
3World’s Shortest Cat
Honestly, when I see a cat, I just look to see how fat it is. Little did I know that they are also short and tall like human beings, only very different from the physical appearances. Lilieput is a nine-year-old female munchkin cat who measures 5.25 inches from the floor to the shoulders. Christel Young from Napa, California in the USA is the proud owner of the shortest cat in the world.
2Largest Collection of Comic Books
Bob Bretall is 52 years old. Since he was 8, he has been collecting comic books. An 8 year old already doing this? Am also lost of words. As of 1st May 2014, Bob had more than 94,268 unique comic books. His collection weighs an estimated 8.3 tons! It is weird that that is about the weight of 118 adult men. Bretall has remained assertive that he will never sell any of his comics. Instead, he expressed that he will leave them, to his children as their inheritance! However, he was open that the beneficiaries may do as the will with the collection.
Please do not go too far with this. Nick “The Lick” Stoeberl has actually been seeking attention and recognition for his long tongue for years. Luckily for him, he is now the holder of the Guinness World Book records for the longest tongue. It measures 3.97 inches from tip to his closed lip.
The young guy is an artist as well as a comedian. He claims to have always known that his tongue was large. It may sound weird and funny at the same time, but this young man even confessed that his dad was a huge kiss fan, who most likely wanted his son to be a rock star; he lightly states that his dad’s prayer is answered through him. On the down side, Nick dislikes the fact that he has to spend a longer time brushing his tongue in the morning.
The list can go on and on but you will concur with me that these 8 above here are definitely among the weirdest Guinness world records of 2015.
