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.
