The 28-year-old, a Texas housewive, has had nine operations to get her up to this size. She traveled to Brazil to get her last procedure which took her from an FFF to a KKK after Texas officials refused to do it, for fear that her biggest breasts could explode.

Hershey, from Houston, said: "To me, big is beautiful. I don't think I have anything to worry about." Hershey is now in record books for having the biggest breast implants ever.

Still, Hershey wanted more! And she was determined to get it. When her boyfriend begged her to stop, she broke up with him.

But Hershey was forced to settle with her FFF mosquito bites because "the state of Texas has limits on the amount of silicone that can be injected into breast implants," noted ABC. Reading this, we found ourselves impressed by Texas, because we didn't think it was the kind of state to impose limits on such things, what with the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and the state priding itself on everything being bigger there and whatnot.

But, as Hershey discovered through diligent research, they have no such restraint in Brazil! And so now, after a ninth surgery, she's the proud owner of both a 38KKK bust (according to Britain's Daily Star) and the world record for largest breasts.

Stuntman tries to beat highest parachute jump record

Steve Truglia set world record,highest parachute jump record,world records 2010
A stuntman is hoping to break the longstanding world record for the highest parachute jump.

Steve Truglia, 47, will rise to the edge of space, where the temperature is minus 70C (-94F), in an open Kevlar box below a lightweight balloon and reach 700mph on his descent. He has been planning for 15 years and has invested more than £100,000 but is appealing for a further £500,000.

“I can’t think of a bigger or better stunt,” said Mr Truglia, above, from Wanstead, northeast London. “You are on the edge of space, with black sky and the stars at eye level.”

An Austrian, Felix Baumgartner, has announced a separate attempt on the record, set 50 years ago by a US air force colonel, Joe Kittinger, who leapt from a balloon at 102,800ft (31km).

World's oldest and most expensive camera set world record

World's oldest and most expensive camera set world record,world oldest camera photo,world oldest camera picture
A Giroux “Daguerreotype” – the world’s first commercially-produced camera – is expected to set a world record price when it goes up for auction this May at WestLicht Auctions in Vienna. The previously undocumented camera has been in private ownership in northern Germany for generations and is in remarkable condition given it is 170 years old.

The wooden sliding-box camera was made in Paris in September 1839 by Alphonse Giroux, the brother-in-law of Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre, the inventor of the first practicable photographic process. Daguerre even signed the camera to verify its authenticity. Only a few of these cameras are known to exist worldwide and all of those are in public museums.

Every detail including the plaque signed by Daguerre, the lens, the black velvet interior and the ground-glass screen are in their original state and the camera also comes with the extremely rare original instructions in German. These instructions, entitled, “Praktische Beschreibung des Daguerreotyp’s” were published by Georg Gropius in Berlin 1839 and feature 24 12x20cm pages with 18 illustrations in 5 plates showing the equipment used for producing Daguerreotypes in accordance with Daguerre’s invention.

The cameras produced by Daguerre’s brother-in-law are more opulently finished that those of the competition and the selling price of 400 Francs was very high, representing approximately the annual income of an average working man at the time. There is no record of the total number of cameras that Giroux produced, but since cheaper and improved cameras came onto the market relatively quickly it is assumed that the numbers were limited.

Making Daguerrotypes is a relatively involved process and the camera was originally sold with all the equipment necessary for their production. This included fuming and mercury boxes, a spirit burner, the silver-covered copper plates and the necessary chemicals. In total all the required equipment weighed around 50 kg (110 lb).

world's oldest camera world record,oldest camera images,oldest camera photo,most expensive camera pictures,

How it works

The camera itself consists of two boxes made of different kinds of wood that slide into each other. The larger of the two, which has the lens attached to it, is fixed to the base plate. The back of the smaller box is either the ground glass plate or the holder insert and it fits into the forward box so that the whole camera is lightproof. The interior is lined with black velvet. In order to bring the image into focus the rear box is moved back or forwards along the wooden camera base.

It can then be fixed in position by means of a brass screw, while a fold-out mirror behind the ground-glass screen allows the image to be seen while standing upright.

Initially Daguerre used plates of pure silver but later switched to plates made of silver-plated copper to save on costs. Before the exposure was made the plates were fumed with iodine or bromine inside a special wooden box with the aid of a spirit burner. Under the influence of this fuming process, light-sensitive silver iodide formed on the surface of the plate.

In order to maximise the brightness of the image while focusing the lens’s outer brass fitting was removed. During the exposure the ground glass screen was exchanged for the (now) light sensitive plate (167 x 216 mm). Before the exposure was made the diaphragm was replaced and a swiveling cap served as a shutter. Daguerre suggested exposure times of between 3 and 30 minutes, depending on light conditions.

After the plate was exposed, the photograph was developed with the aid of mercury fumes which adhered to the surface producing a very faint silver image. Development and fixation in a salt or cyanide solution results in a positive image made of grey quicksilver. The tonality of the original pictures varied between grey and blue-grey but, after the introduction of gold toner, they could also be gold, purple or sepia-coloured.

World record in jump-roping set by Californians

<br />  World record in jump-roping set by Californians<br />world largest jump record,world record 2010
Around California at 9 a.m. on Monday, the sound of more than 80,000 jump ropes swinging at once will be heard.

The California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, in association with the American Heart Association and the Governor’s Challenge, is hosting 84,000 people across California to break the Guinness World Record for most people jump roping at the same time on Feb. 1.

“[CAHPERD] is turning 80 years old this year, so we’re turning it up this year” said CAHPERD Executive Director Drisha Leggitt, who initiated the project.

About a year ago, Leggitt began looking for a way to make a statement for exercise in California and found the Guinness Book of World Records’ official record for most people to jump rope at one time was 59,000, set by Australia in May, 2008.

“We started talking with CAHPERD in December, looking how we could be part of this great event,” Pittman said. “Kathy Weninger, a member of the PTSA, and the physical education department head, Debi Hayos have been working together to make sure all of our first period PE classes can participate.”

“I got an e-mail last fall from CAHPERD and they sent it out to all the jump rope teams in the area,” said Weninger, who’s also the coordinator for one of the local competitive jump rope teams, the Foothill Force.

Weninger then spoke about it at a PTSA meeting and the rest is history.

In addition to the school’s supply of jump ropes, the PTSA donated more than 70 to the cause, Pittman added. Teachers with first period open have been encouraged to participate and Pittman plans on doing some rope skipping herself.

“I’m very excited for this,” Pittman said. “I’m bringing my own jump rope. We sent e-mails to the PTSA parents asking them if they would like to join.”

The coordination efforts have been difficult, Leggitt said, but that the majority of the work has been in getting the agreed upon judges and meeting the standards of the Guinness Record keepers.

“They really make you jump through some hoops,” Leggitt said. “They receive about 3,000 requests a day and so now it’s very difficult to get a recognized attempt.”

The rules state that in order for the attempt to be recognized, two independent witnesses per jump rope site—volunteers who can’t be employed by the school or whatever company is hosting the competition at a given site.

Each site will have a log sheet. Participants will sign in and the judge will verify that each person who signs in is who they say they are.

Then the Guinness Book agency needs two letters from each site—one per judge—explaining what took place during the record-breaking event.

DAYTON (Ohio) - TWO US men who've been certified as the world's oldest living male conjoined twins are moving in with their little brother.

A charity in Machias, New York, called the Christian Youth Corps Inc says it's helping 58-year-old Donnie and Ronnie Galyon by modifying the home of their brother, Jim Galyon, in the spring. The twins live in a tiny home in Dayton, Ohio. Their brother lives in nearby Beavercreek.

Donnie and Ronnie are listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. They're joined at the torso. They have four arms and four legs and separate hearts and stomachs. They share a lower intestine.

Dan Magness sets 'keepy-uppy' world record

Dan Magness sets 'keepy-uppy' world record,Olympic world record,sport world record,world records 2010
Mr Dan Magness has broken a world record by playing "keepy-uppy" 30 miles across London, visiting every Premier League stadium in the capital.

Dan Magness, 26, left Fulham's Craven Cottage at 0800 GMT and finished at Tottenham Hotspur's White Hart Lane stadium at about 2145 GMT.

By doing the "football freestyler", he managed the longest keepy-uppy journey.

To break the record he had to keep the ball off the ground using all parts of his body, except his hands.

After reaching White Hart Lane, Mr Magness, of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, said: "I am absolutely exhausted, I've had every sort of cramp but I am really proud."


He said he now hoped to visit every Premier League ground doing his football tricks.

The ball he used will embark on a 10,000-mile overland journey to Johannesburg, South Africa.

On its journey, the football will be taken through Europe and 17 African countries to the opening of the World Cup in the South African city.

In much the same vein as the Olympic Torch, the football - which organisers refer to as The Ball - is seen as a symbol of hope, promoting peace and unity.

The ball was hand-stitched in Africa by Alive & Kicking, a UK-based social enterprise that runs stitching factories in Kenya and Zambia.

"It's a fitting way to begin the ball's journey to the World Cup in South Africa and we're very proud that a ball hand-stitched by Alive & Kicking in Kenya will be the centrepiece of this amazing footballing spectacle," said Alive & Kicking director Will Prochaska.

Mr Magness has already broken four world records, recently controlling a ball for 24 hours in a box in central London's Covent Garden.

A pensioner aims to break her own record for world's oldest abseiler by plunging 220ft on her 96th birthday accompanied by celebrities Chris Evans and James Corden.


Doris Long, 95, from Hayling Island, Hants, will take part in her latest adrenalin rush in May by throwing herself from the top of the civic office building in Portsmouth.

New BBC Radio 2 breakfast show presenter Evans will accompany Mrs Long after hearing of her recording breaking feats on his programme.

And after being introduced to Gavin and Stacey star Corden at the Pride of Britain awards where he presented her with a prize for her fund-raising efforts Corden is also set to take on the death-defying drop.

Mrs Long said: "It is very exciting. I like Chris very much; he is a very funny man.

"I met James Corden recently and he was lovely too. I have met so many famous people through my fund-raising and it is still great fun.

"If either of them are scared I will be on hand to give them some tips on getting down safely."

Bucks inventor Perry Watkins is aiming for a new world record - for the world's fastest furniture!

Perry already holds the world records for both the flattest and the smallest cars.

Now this Wingrave inventor wants to the break the record for the world's fastest furniture with Fastfood - his latest creation.

Edd China and Marek Turosk, from Leicestershire, set the current record in 2007 after managing to get a sofa to reach a top speed of 92mph.

Perry is sure he can beat this record with his turbo charged dining table.

Perry told BBC Three Counties how things are going so far: "Fastfood is about three quarters finished now. It's a Reliant Scimitar Sabre sports car chassis with a three and a half litre V8 engine with nitrous oxide injection. It should do 0-60 in about four seconds and about 160mph top speed."

Perry's certainly not a rocket scientist - he says he's not even an engineer: "I'm a shoe repairer by trade. I just started off tinkering with bicycles, mopeds, bikes, and progressed to cars.

"I'm completely self taught," said Perry "If I don't know how to do something I'll just ask someone or look it up on the internet!

Avatar-highest earning film to claim world box office record

Avatar sails past Titanic to claim world box office record,Avatar world records,Avatar highest earning film,avatar world box office record

JAMES CAMERON'S Avatar is now the highest-earning film in the world, published figures have confirmed.

Twentieth Century Fox's sci-fi flick today surpassed Cameron's previous world record-holder Titanic to claim the all-time global box office crown.

Film data site Box Office Mojo shows that Avatar has grossed a staggering $1.859 billion in just under six weeks, beating Titanic's $1.843billion. The clamour for the 3D IMAX experience - with more expensive tickets - has undoubtedly contributed to the film's takings.

In third place in the all-time worldwide chart is The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King with $1.119billion, followed by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest with $1.066billion and then The Dark Knight with $1billion.

At present, Titanic still holds the USA box office record with a tally of $600million compared with Avatar's $555million.

BARROW ISLAND, Australia -- Scientists at the World Meteorological Organization confirmed that the 253.5 mph (408 km/h) wind gust achieved during Tropical Cyclone Olivia on April 10, 1996 sets the new world record for the Highest surface wind speed.


The previous world record for the Highest surface wind speed was of 372 km/h, registered in April 1934 across the summit of Mount Washington, USA.

The panel of experts (Dr. Pierre Bessemoulin, MeteoFrance and President of CCl; Dr. Tom Peterson, NOAA National Climatic Data Center; Dr. Blair Trewin, Australian Bureau of Meteorology; Dr. Jose M. Rubiera Torres, Cuban Instituto de Meteorología; Dr. John (Jack) Beven, USA National Hurricane Center; Dr. John King, British Antarctic Survey; Dr. Randy Cerveny, Arizona State University and CCl Rapporteur of Climate Extremes) came to the conclusion after an extensive review and evaluation of instrumental and statistical data.

Olivia was the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane as it roared along the northwest coast of Australia. The storm with the Highest surface wind speed injured 10 people in the mining town of Pannawonica.

Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are different terms for the same weather phenomenon which is accompanied by torrential rain and maximum sustained wind speeds exceeding119 kilometers per hour. A hurricane with maximum sustained wind speeds exceeding 249 km/h is referred to as Category 5.

A wind gust of 318 mph was measured by Doppler radar during a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, in 1999. However, Doppler records are not considered official.

Overclocker hits 8.19GHz with Intel Celeron CPU, sets new world record

intel Celeron CPU, sets new world record,computer world record 2010
Intel's Celeron line of CPUs aren't known for their feature set of performance credentials, but the budget parts are a favourite among overclocking enthusiasts who're looking to push their processors to the limit.

Don't be surprised, then, to find that an overclocker going by the name of TiN has set a new world record for CPU frequency by overclocking a 3.06GHz Intel Celeron D 347 right the way up to a blistering 8,199.5MHz.

In an age of multi-threaded computing, CPU frequency is no longer the defining performance characteristic, but there's no denying TiN's remarkable feat.

So how did he do it? Well, in order to best cool the £25 CPU, he first heated it to over 200°C to remove the integrated heat spreader (IHS). With that out the way, he popped the still-working CPU into a heavily-modified DFI Lanparty UT P35-T2R motherboard and watched it hit 8,199.5MHz whilst cooled by liquid nitrogen.

TiN's score beats out the previous record holder by just 16.8MHz. Here's the validated CPU-Z screenshot:

Magnetic Tape Data Density Record set a new world record by IBM

Magnetic Tape,Data Density Record,technology world record, IBM


Fujifilm Recording Media U.S.A and IBM today announced that they were able to demonstrate a new particulate that can be used to create magnetic tape cartridges that are 44 times more dense than today's Generation 4 LTO Ultrium cartridges.

The magnetic media technology uses a new process of aligning barium-ferrite (BaFe) particles on the tape. It enables a density of 29.5 billion bits per square inch with magnetic tape media, allowing for the storage of 35TB of uncompressed data. BaFe is a crystalline substance that does not corrode or change chemically over time, making it ideal for long-term data storage.

Fujifilm said its process for laying down BaFe particles on tape, which it calls "Nanocubic technology," uses a new coating process and advanced dispersion techniques to achieve an ultrathin magnetic layer that produces higher resolution for recording digital data.

The Nanocubic technology creates BaFe particles that are about one-third of LTO tape's metal particle size and lays down the particles in a uniform, perpendicular manner, according to Fujifilm.

"We are hopeful about bringing this technology to market and believe it will change the face of tape storage," said Peter Faulhaber, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Fujifilm Recording. "We believe that tape has the potential to be the next-generation storage solution as it meets all the core needs of the market."

According to Norio Shibata, CEO of Fujifilm Recording, the BaFe particle offers superior storage with "lower noise and higher frequency characteristics than other metal particles."

Fujifilm first demonstrated the technology with IBM tape cartridges in 2006, achieving a density world record at that time as well.

Reducing a ferromagnetic particle to microscopic size is a challenge because the process can reduce the material's resistance to demagnification, Shibata said.

BaFe particles have a high resistance to demagnification, which makes their high-density recording performance superior.

Felix Baumgartner to set a skydive world record

Felix Baumgartner to set a skydive world record,skydive world record 2010
A daredevil skydiver has announced plans to leap to earth from the edge of space - setting four world records in the process.

Felix Baumgartner will jump from a record 120,000 feet and will even set an altitude record for the highest manned balloon flight just getting there.

On his way down the Austrian will set a distance record for longest free-fall and is expected to become the first person to break the speed of sound with his own body.

It is thought that the fall - due to happen this spring/summer - will last more than five minutes.

Maybe Baumgartner should think of another record to break on the way down… like seeing how many crackers he can eat.

The records Felix Baumgartner will set

1. Altitude record for freefall
2. Distance record for longest freefall
3. Speed record for fasted freefall by breaking the speed of sound with the human body
4. Altitude record for the highest manned balloon flight

In 1960, United States Air Force Captain Joe Kittinger, made aerospace history by freefalling from 102,800 feet. This achievement contributed valuable data that set the groundwork for the United States’ first space program.

Kittinger has been advising Felix on operational safety and bringing his extensive experience to the programme. Over the last two years he has been preparing himself mentally and physically in order to attempt this new challenge, which has already begun to provide important learnings.

Butler University students want to go down in the History books or at least the Guinness Book of World Records.

More than 225 students participated in a choreographed robot dance for 12 hours in an attempt to break the world record Saturday Starting at 10 am Saturday students learned the moves and practiced throughout the day.

The students will test their practiced choreography Saturday at 8 pm in hopes it will land them a spot in the book.

The dance-a-thon is a celebration for a year’s worth of fundraising to benefit Riley Hospital for Children.

Dance Marathon Coordinator, Frank Council, said the group had a personal connection to the cause this year.

“It’s an extra special year for us because co-president, Ben Cohen’s, sister was a Riley kid and unfortunately she passed away this Spring,” said Council. “So, this whole year and semester has been dedicated towards her and to really get this up and running.”

Council said the fundraiser is an outreach effort for everyone.

“It’s for our community but it's for those involved in the cause as well," said Council.

The goal is to raise 65 thousand dollars for Riley Hospital for Children. That's 25 thousand dollars more than the group’s goal last year.

Wolrd Record Valentine's Day Kisses

Mexico City sets kissing record on Valentine's Day,world records 2010,kiss records 2009
Mexico City puckered up to set a new record Saturday as nearly 40,000 people locked lips in the city center for the world's largest group kiss.

Carlos Martinez of Guinness World Records verified the record of 39,897 people who entered the gated kissing area of the city's Zocalo main square on Valentine's Day, besting Weston-super-Mare, an English town that set the previous kissing record in 2007.

"We did it! Long live Mexico," said Mexican singer-actress Susana Zavaleta, who serenaded the crowd before the kiss with the classic Mexican ballad, "Besame Mucho," or "Kiss Me a Lot" — also the name of the event.

The Valentine's Day kiss was meant to show love at a time when a crackdown against drug traffickers has led to widespread violence across the country. At least 6,000 people died in drug-related conflicts in 2008.

"More than 35,000 will simultaneously kiss to show that warmth and love are at the core of this capital, the heart of the Mexican Republic," the city's tourism department, which organized the gathering, said in a statement.

The event "is aimed at changing people's attitudes toward human relations, especially between couples, so that respect, equity and tolerance are at the center of any relationship," the statement said.

The giant Zocalo, which can hold 100,000 people, was half-filled as mostly young couples embraced and held one another in a lip lock for 10 seconds.

As the crowd grew, city workers in cupid wings offered hugs, teenage boys carried signs volunteering their kissing services and couples practiced openly in a country that surprises many with its pervasive public displays of affection.

"We love demonstrating our love in front of everyone and in front of our family," said Lucia Gutierrez, 38, who spent the afternoon rehearsing with Vicente Romero, 34, her boyfriend of 10 months. "There's nothing bad about showing your love."

Benito Zavala, 53, who works in a store nearby, said he didn't have time to go home to get his wife. So he planned to help set the record with his 2-year-old Chihuahua, Onix, who was licking his lips.

"It's a good idea because a lot of people feel the need to share their affection," Zavala said. "They already do it in the Metro, in the street, so I think it's best if they all do it together."

Welshman attempts world record by painting his car with nail polish

Welshman attempts world record by painting his car with nail polish,world recods 2010,worlds longest painting record
A Welshman is attempting to make the record books by painting a car with nail varnish - and streaming the entire process online.

David Sheath, 28, plans to painstakingly cover an entire Fiat 500 in pink polish - streaming his progress live and non-stop at pinkmyride.tv.

He is hoping the viral will be named as the world's longest advert by the Guiness Book of Records.

The semi-professional footballer will live and sleep in a studio in Clapham, South London, while he completes the task, which he expects will take at least a week.
Guinness said it would look into David's claim for the record of longest online advert.

A spokesperson for Guinness World Records said: 'This sounds like a potentially interesting claim.'



It is estimated David will need 200 pots of pink varnish and make 240,000 strokes to transform the white car into a pink car.

Blind grandmother's record breaking fish 'weighed two Cheryl Coles

Blind grandmother's record breaking fish 'weighed,world records 2010,amazing world record

A blind grandmother from London, Sheila Penfold, has entered the record books for
catching the biggest ever freshwater fish by a British woman.

The 56 year-old, from Wandsworth, south west London, was nearly dragged into the river when the monster catfish took her bait.

Mrs Penfold, who is 5ft 3ins tall, used a bait of halibut pellets to snare the 8ft 2ins long catfish on the River Ebro near Barcelona.

She had to be directed by husband Alan and son Arthur as she tried to reel it in because she couldn't see the aquatic beast due to her poor eyesight.

But after a 30 minute fight Mrs Penfold finally landed the prized catch that weighed 214lbs or 15st 4lbs, or the equivilent of two Cheryl Coles.

The specimen was so big it could only be caught after her husband, a 62-year-old retired gardener, Arthur and two colleagues to heave it into a weighing slip.

The fish dwarfed her husband's best effort of 176lbs during the fishing trip to Spain and set a record for the biggest freshwater fish caught by a British woman before.
It is also the biggest fish caught by a woman in Spain.


Mrs Penfold, who is partially sighted but registered blind, said she only realised how big her catch was when she saw it close up.

"I was exhausted but elated afterwards," she said.

"The record has taken a while to sink in.

"I'm still walking around with a smile on my face."

She added: "But it goes to show that just because you are blind it doesn't stop you breaking records like this."

"I had three rods lined up on the bank and when one of them tipped over Arthur told me which one it was.

"I grabbed hold of it and was immediatly pulled towards the water. Luckily I managed to stop myself and I started to reel it in."

She continued: "But for some reason I turned round and said that I didn't think it was going to be a big one.

"Then all of a sudden it took off again and it took the line of the reel.

"I spent about half-an-hour reeling it in. When it broke the surface of the water Alan told me it was a big size.

"I saw it for the first time when it was near the edge and it looked a monster."

After having her picture taken with it, she returned the catfish back into the water in good health.

She added: "Alan wasn't at all jealous and was really pleased for me."

Mr Penfold said: "She isn't really a big woman but she stuck to it and got it in the end, although it took everything out of her.

"She did brilliantly, especially as she is registered blind."

The record for the biggest fish caught in Britain by a woman is a 69lbs 8oz catfish caught by Bev Street, 46, from Skegness, Lincs.

Mike Heylin, of the British Records Fish Committee, said: "I would think this is the biggest freshwater fish caught by a British woman.

Aaron Stannage has set World’s longest bicycle wheelie record



An eight-mile bicycle wheelie completed this week by Aaron Stannage, from Barnsley,
South Yorkshire is likely to earn the 14-year-old a place in the record books.
Cycling is not an extreme sport but most people use both wheels.
It will take Guinness World Records officials a few weeks to determine whether
Aaron has established a new record, but it is thought that this is the first
time anyone had attempted to wheelie the maximum distance within one hour.

During his record attempt, Aaron circled an indoor racing track more than
90 times while listening to his iPod to pass the time.

Danny Brooks football records,new football records,world records 2010,longest football throw world records,Olympics World Records
A UK school teacher,Danny Brooks has broken world's longest football throw-in record with his special flip throw that can cover half the length of a football field.

Danny Brooks has set a new world record for the longest football throw-in after perfecting a unique flip that launches the ball further than five double-decker buses.

Danny Brooks, 28, has perfected a special flip that enabled him to throw a football 49.78 metres (163ft 3.8in).

His flipping technique is within the rules because both of his feet are on the ground at the time of the throw.

After sending film footage and photos of this throw to the Guinness World Records, they announced the West Yorkshire-born man had set the new record.

Danny, of Halifax, was inspired to start throwing after watching Stoke's Rory Delap's long throws on the pitch.

The previous world record was set by America's Michael Lochner with a 48.17m throw in 1998.

Ex-soldier Mike Buss, 35, ran 517.3 miles (832.4km) on a treadmill at the Brunel Shopping Centre,beating the previous record of 468 miles.Mr Buss has been running on the treadmill for 20 out of every 24 hours.He said he was aiming to break 20 world records every year and raise £1m for the Help for Heroes charity.
This is now the fourth time his name appears in the Guinness Book of World Records after continuous cycling, running with a kit bag and running in a chemical warfare suit.

Mike, 35, said: “I feel brilliant – it was the biggest world record I was going for this year.

“It was the toughest challenge I’ve ever done and is the toughest world record in the book. I don’t think there’s any other endurance world record that comes close to that one. The crowd’s support was fantastic. They came out in all weathers to cheer me on and donate money for charity and it gave me the buzz to carry on.”

Mike added: “I’m actually feeling all right. I do recover very quickly. When my body cools down I will end up getting stiff muscles so I’ll have a massage to prevent that as much as possible.

“I’m looking forward to a bit of stew which is on the go and get back into as much of a normal routine as possible.

“I’ll be in light training today and be back into full training by Friday.”

Mike is now on a mission to break 20 world endurance records in just 12 months – a feat that has never been achieved before.

One of the faces in the crowd supporting Mike was Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher from Solihull in the West Midlands.

In February last year he hit the national headlines after his quick-thinking saved his companions from certain death in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

He triggered a trip wire dropped to the ground and covered a grenade with his rucksack. He was blown into the air and the backpack was shredded, but he survived.

Matt was later awarded The George Cross – one of the highest military decorations for acts of gallantry. There are currently only 19 living recipients in the country.

Shear toil to seize world record

world ewe shearing record,world records 2010,seize world record
Far North shearer Matthew Smith has broken the world ewe shearing record by shearing 578 sheep in eight hours.

The previous record of 560 was achieved by Southland shearer Jimmy Clark two years ago.

Smith, a 25-year-old from Ruawai, in Northland, sheared 149 ewes in the first two hours and 143 for each of the remaining three two-hour blocks.

He was unable to comment after his record-breaking effort because he had to undergo lactic acid replenishment treatment for physical exertion.The record was broken in a remote shed at Waitara Station, near Te Pohue, between Napier and Taupo yesterday. Smith's marathon effort ended at 4pm.

Chief judge Peter Black said the quality of Smith's shearing got better as the day progressed.

The World Sheep Shearing Records Society requires a minimum average weight of 3 kilograms per ewe fleece.

Smith's average fleece weight totalled 3.1kg for the 578 sheep shorn, Mr Black said.

Just one sheep was rejected during the day from the tally because of poor quality.

In 2006 Smith was a surprise winner of the Golden Shears Open Plate competition, contested by the six shearers who failed to make the final.

Israel breaks Guinness record for the world's biggest hummus



Israel have broken the world record for the biggest serving of hummus, beating Lebanon just months after it also attempted to break the record.

Chefs and residents in the Abu Gosh, cooked up 4,000kg of hummus, using 21/2 tonnes of chickpeas, 11/2 tonnes of sesame paste and hundreds of fresh-squeezed lemons, as well as crushed garlic and olive oil. The finished product was displayed on a huge dish: a satellite dish nearly 20ft in diameter.
Three months ago, Lebanese chefs mashed up just over 2,000kg, an important win in the eyes of the Israelis.

Hummus is sometimes described as one of the oldest known prepared foods, is enjoyed in much of the Middle East and has probably been around for centuries.

However, much like its political conflict, the orgins of this chickpea dish has been a bone of contention.

Lebanon claims ownership of hummus and accuses Israel of stealing the product and marketing it as Israeli, according to reports. Its exact origin is unknown, though presumed to be Arab.

Despite Israel winning the title in the Guiness Book of Records, there is no doubt that Lebanon will retaliate.

Va. Beach resident takes top honor from Guinness



It’s official: Gary Duschl and the longest chewing gum wrapper chain in the world achieved the top stunt of the past decade.

Guinness World Records confirmed the win in a news release after online voting for the top spot in each of 10 categories closed the day after Christmas.

Duschl beat men who hold records for the longest full body contact with ice, swallowing the most swords simultaneously and for holding rattlesnakes in a mouth.

Duschl got 62 percent of the votes in the top stunt category, but Guinness has not disclosed how many total votes there were for the category.

“It’s an honor, and I’m very pleased to be even in the top 100, but to make it in the top 10, boy, I’m just amazed with that,” Duschl said today.

As of Dec. 11, the chain measured 61,988 feet, or nearly 12 miles, with 1,462,066 wrappers.

The Virginia Beach resident already had made it onto the Guinness list of top 100 records for the decade and into the 2010 book, which was released in September. He has been adding to the chain since 1965.

Duschl hasn’t heard officially from Guinness, he said, but he expects a certificate or other official notification to arrive by mail soon.

He has received e-mails and visits to his Web site and his video posted on YouTube. He also said he expects more gum wrappers to arrive in the mail to add to the chain, which grows daily.

Duschl said he’s thankful to everyone who voted for him.

And next week, he’ll post an update on the chain’s progress as he does monthly on his site.

His new goal, he said last month, is for the chain to grow to 26 miles.

Cessnock man hoping to break world record for whole blood donations



Cessnock resident Phil Baird could soon see his name in the Guinness Book of World Records for most whole blood donations.

Mr. Baird donated blood for the 231st time at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service Donormobile on Christmas Eve, and will be sending off the paperwork to England today in the hope of making his record official.

As of December 11, Guinness World Records confirmed that the current world record holder is Robert Hall from New Zealand, who has made 177 donations.

Mr. Baird made his 228th whole blood donation in April this year, believed to be a world record at the time, but this effort not able to be accepted by Guinness World Records because the system employed was to include all types of blood donors under the banner of just “Blood Donations”.

After Mr. Baird explained the difference between whole blood donations and apheresis (plasma and platelet removal), Guinness World Records has created a new category for “Whole Blood Donations”.

“Over a considerable period of time I explained to GWR that there were two major differences in blood donations,” Mr. Baird said.

“One is apheresis, which is when a small amount of blood is taken from the donor and processed through a machine that extracts valuable plasma and platelets. The blood is then transferred back into the body of the donor.

“Because there is only minimal blood loss, an aphaeresis donor can donate every two weeks if they wish, as there is no fear of anaemia.

“The other type of blood donor is a whole blood donor, who gives 450mls of blood each time they donate. Consequently a whole blood donor can only donate once every twelve or thirteen weeks (approximately four times a year). If they donated more frequently they could suffer from anaemia.”

Mr. Baird, 75, made his first blood donation at 19 years old when he enlisted with the National Service, and was named Cessnock City Citizen of the Year in 2009.
