Glen Oaks Community College is planning to break the Guiness World Book's record for the world's largest meatball.
Professors, students and others are planning to make the meatball March 15, the students' first day back from Spring Break, then offer the food to the people of Centreville for free.

“After completing the record-breaking process, we will then feed up to 800 people from the county a meatball sandwich, salad, and a beverage for free,” Professor of business Bill Furr said in a press release.

Members of the recreation/student activities and student government organizations, along with a host of volunteers including business and science professors plan to participate.

Furr said the current world record in the Guinness World Book of Records is 222.5 pounds, an achievement set by Nonni’s Italian Eatery of New Hampshire in November. Nonni’s broke the record of 198.6 pounds created on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (See the video below).

Also helping to coordinate the cooking effort is Jerry Barkley, professor of science, along with student government members Leanna Tokarski and Iffe Oni. The educators have tentative approval from the health department and have consulted with the Guiness World Book people about their record-breaking plans.

Husband Hunting Bra - World's Most Weird inventions 2009

The "husband-hunting" bra has been manufactured by the international lingerie firm amid Japan's falling marriage rate and with the age of the average bride now 28 or over.

Triumph publicist Keiko Masuda said of the bra, which features a self-set counter: "First you decide your target time or deadline until marriage and the countdown clock will start.

"Once you find your life partner and get engaged, you have to insert the engagement ring into the slot and the clock stops and The Wedding March begins."

She added: "Japanese women are becoming more aggressive than men, working actively to make marriage happen, whereas in the past it was men who led women towards marriage. The roles have switched completely."

Japanese government statistics show nearly 57 per cent of women under 34 are unmarried and strategic marriage-hunting enterprises have blossomed.

Some 3,800 firms have Japanese match-making businesses, making a market for a beau-targeting bra a no-brainer. Once the wedding deal is done, though, the bra includes a holder for the family seal and a pen to sign a pre- or post-nuptial agreement.

Worlds Largest Collection of Miniature Chairs World Record set by Barbara Hartsfield

Barbara Hartsfield picture,<br />Barbara Hartsfield images, Miniature Chairs picture, Miniature Chairs images, Miniature Chairs photo, Miniature Chairs records picture

The one thing that visitors never have trouble finding when they’re at Barbara Hartsfield’s little shop in Stone Mountain Village is a chair. There are more than 3,000 of them, though most are too small for even the tiniest person to sit in.

The Minichair Gallery at 994 Main St., Stone Mountain, is a combination shop and museum with plant holders, picture frames, bookends, cookie jars, inkwells, water globes, jewelry boxes and a huge assortment of other items—all made to look like tiny chairs. The salt and pepper shaker collection alone has more than 100 items. There are even chairs within chairs such as the chair earring holder that has earrings that are all chairs. In honor of the season, there is a Christmas tree with more than 100 different ornaments, each a miniature chair.

Hartsfield, in fact, is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the owner of the world’s largest collection of miniature chairs. “They had to create a category just for me,” Hartsfield recalled. “I stopped counting at 3,000. Somebody else may go after the record, but that’s OK. I have the one certificate; that’s all I want.”
She explained that the collection started as a hobby when she was working fulltime as a psychiatric nurse at Grady Hospital. She was writing an article for a professional journal on working with pregnant psychiatric patients. She decided that chairs would make soothing images for such patients and bought a few doll-size chairs to have around as she interviewed patients.

“When the building across the street became available, I was praying that I could get it. I would leave church on Sunday and come out here and look at that building and pray. I didn’t know that as I was praying I was standing on the property that actually was going to become mine,” she said.

In the seven months the Minichair Gallery has been open, it has nearly filled up with exhibits, most of which are in the museum. The shop occupies a relatively small part of the house. “I don’t like to sell the items in the museum—some are one-of-a-kind items that can’t be replaced—but once in a while someone talks me into selling something from the museum,” she said. Even the shop’s bathroom has chairs in its bathtub.
“My eye is always out for something different,” Hartsfield said, adding that she regularly goes online to see what other miniature chairs are being offered for sale. “I’m going to have to stop doing that—or get a bigger place,” she said.

In the museum, chairs are grouped by about 30 themes. There’s a Coca-Cola theme, a jungle theme and a sports theme, for example. There are groupings for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and other holidays, but Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Labor Day items are included in the patriotic collection, where she has photos from the 2008 presidential inauguration that have never been published. Functional items such as radios, napkin holders and planters are separate from those that are just knickknacks.

World's Biggest Christmas Stocking World Record set by Children's Society



On Friday 14th December The Children's Society set a new record for the Worlds Biggest Christmas Stocking. An adjudicator from the Guinness World Records measured it at 32.56m (in the leg) by 14.97m (heel to toe), smashing the last record set by a group in Canada just weeks ago. Thousands of knitted red squares were sent in by supporters who were sponsored to knit to raise money for the Children's Society. We beat our target for squares and raised a staggering £14,000 which will be used to ensure that every child has a good childhood.

The massive stocking weighed the equivalent of 5 reindeer, was as long as 3 double decker buses and we had nearly 1000 presents to fill it with. The presents will be given to children in our projects around the country.

It was a mammoth effort and so many people made enormously valuable contributions. Thanks are due to:

- Everyone who knitted red squares and sent them in
- All the volunteers to took squares away to sew and came along to the church in the last week
- The American InterContinental University for making the 'heel'
- The London College of Fashion for sewing squares together
- St Mary Magdalene, Munster Square, for the use of the church for sewing the stocking together
- The ExCel, London, for the use of their venue
- British Felt Ltd for the donation of felt for the top of the stocking
- Fairway PSD Ltd for the donation of boxes and presents and help with the logistics
- The children of Fosters Primary School for being our wonderful elves (which you can see in the picture)

Growing green Plants Jewellery - New Jewelry Designs 2010

green Plants Jewelery design picture,Jewelery design picture,Jewelery design images,Jewelery design photo
A jewellery designer has come up with the ultimate 'green' collection - rings with live plants growing inside them instead of precious stones.

Featuring tiny Icelandic moss plants sprouting in their stainless steel bases, the pieces are said to be a 'clash of jewellery and gardening'.They need watering like any other plant and if looked after, designer Hafsteinn Juliusson claims they can last up to six months.
But they don't need to be pruned because, according to Mr Juliusson, the moss grows 'so slowly that you cant even see it.'

Mr Juliusson said: "It is important to take good care of Growing Jewellery.

"The owner must water it regularly and nurture it like any other plant. It's up to them to make sure that the jewellery is at it's best."

The 23-year-old said his pieces were designed for city dwellers and are aimed at drawing 'nature toward man.'

"I like to approach design from new perspectives and reach a diverse range of people," he added.

"I want to be involved with society, ecology and I try to avoid mainstream mass production.

"Growing Jewellery is a redefinition of modern values. It is a clash of jewelry and gardening; couture and organism.

"The collection is designed for people in metropolitan cities and is an experiment in drawing nature toward man, as nature being the presupposition of life."

The rings in the striking collection are available to buy with the moss already growing inside. Mr Juliusson, from Reykjavik, Iceland, says each ring will to cost around 485 pounds.

An Israeli illusionist Hezi Dayan spent 66 hours in an eight-tonne block of ice, breaking the record of the American magician David Blaine.

An Israeli illusionist spent 66 hours in an eight-tonne block of ice, breaking the record of the American magician David Blaine. Hezi Dayan, 29, had himself sealed into a specially constructed transparent ice cube in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square, where he apparently stayed for nearly three days wearing just jeans and a thin T-shirt.

"My aim," Mr Dayan told Haaretz newspaper before attempting the feat, "is that at two or three in the morning, people on their way home from a night out will say, 'Come, let's go to the square and see if that loony is in his ice.'"

At the stroke of the New Year, assistants cut open the ice block and removed the weak-looking illusionist, taking him straight to a waiting ambulance.His condition was not immediately clear.

Some 200 onlookers celebrated the arrival of the new decade with Dean, many of the them carrying signs - from the encouraging "Hezi the great," to the more practical "Don't die Hezi Dayan." David Blaine spent 63 hours in a similar ice cube in New York's Times Square in 2000.
