Do you know the origin story of RickRoll?
March 29th, 2022 under Guinness World Records, Rick Astley. [ Comments: none ]

We know what being RickRolled is about, but do you know how it all started?

In honor of the 15th anniversary of the global phenomenon, the Guinness Book of World Records shared how it all began, “On March 29, 2007, Rockstar released their latest GTA IV trailer, which caused their website to crash.

“4chan.org then used the defunct link to redirect people to Rick Astley’s 1987 hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.”

That is kind of a letdown. But, I am never gonna give up RickRolling people. Will you give it up?

Oh, there is one more interesting fact about RickRolling that they shared. To find out what it is, then you must click here.

I need to learn this Guinness World Record as a party trick
May 26th, 2021 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]

There are a lot of wacky Guinness World Records out there. However, this latest one can come in super handy at a party. What is it? It is the Fastest Time to Eat a Hot Dog with No Hands.

Watch Leah Shutkeve, who holds 23 Guinness World Records, down on that frankfurter in 18.15 seconds. Now boys, can you honestly tell me that you didn’t wish that was you?

I think my dateless nights would be over if I did that. I remember doing someone like that in college at a Frat party and suddenly had a few dates after that,

Now that I am vaccinated, and the pandemic is starting to wind down, I am going to practice my Weiner skills. Forget the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4th; this is what I need to perfect.

The teen with the longest hair in Guinness World Records gets a bob
April 14th, 2021 under Guinness World Records, Haircut. [ Comments: none ]

Nilanshi Patel has had the longest hair on a teenager in the Guinness World Records since 2018, but that is no longer the case. That is because the 18-year-old got her first haircut in 12 years.

And what a haircut it was. They cut off nearly 6’6″ that weighed 9.4 ounces.

What is going to happen to her locks? They will be displayed at Ripley’s Believe it or Not Hollywood before moving to its permanent residence at Guinness World Records Museum, also in Hollywood.

How does the girl, who called herself Rapunzel, feel about her new look? “OMG! It’s beautiful! It’s amazing,” she said. “I’m like a little princess!” And she looks like one too with her hairdo.

Retro: A hairy Guinness World Record
March 2nd, 2021 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]


There are so many crazy Guinness World Records that I don’t know why I still get surprised by some of them. For example, there was a barber who collected 167 pounds of hair via five years of haircuts and turned it into a hair ball. Even my cat never barfed up anything that gross. It is so gross, that it looks like the poo emoji.

Back to Henry Coffer, from Charleston, Missouri. Before he passed away in 2014, he sold his ball of hair to Ripley’s.

The 167 pounds of hair was just a fraction of what he collected over his 50 years of cutting hair. He said that he probably saved about 2,600 pounds of it and used it as fertilizer and for patching potholes.

Who knew that discarded hair had so many uses? The more you know. The more you wish you didn’t.

An apple a day, like this, will send you to the doctor!
March 3rd, 2020 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]


Remember how William Tell would shoot apples off of someone’s head with an arrow? Well, that is child’s play as compared to what Wang Lei did in December. In one minute, he used a chainsaw to cut 21 apples in half while they were Wang Xinli’s mouth.

Now, he holds the title in the Guiness Book of World Records for doing it. Believe it or not, he is not the first person to attempt it. Two other people held the title before him.

You know, it is no skin off of the slicer’s nose to do this, but it could be a lot of skin off of the holder’s nose. You know, like the whole nose. I don’t get why someone would be like sure, I will let you use a chainsaw to cut an apple out of my mouth. I can’t think of anyone I would trust to do that. Would you be their dummy?
