DALLAS - It was the "shot heard 'round the world,'" and a world record, set by one of our own Orlando Magic players.

On Saturday February 13, during NBA All-Star Jam Session in Dallas, Magic man Dwight Howard entered the Guinness Book of World Records by hitting the longest basketball shot while sitting down. After nailing one from half-court, Howard scooted back to 52 feet and six inches, flicked his wrist, and made history.

"I was just having fun. They asked me to do it before we got to Dallas, to 'break your own record,' and it was all in the wrist," Howard told FOX 35. "I talked to Reggie Miller before it and he said just flick your wrist, and it worked."

When asked if he was he genuinely surprised after he made the shot, Howard said, "Uh, it was one of those shots we practice every day as a team... just kidding."

"Superman" is a kidder and all-around performer, with cameos in Hollywood movies and a hilarious "This is SportsCenter" commercial on ESPN. In the spot, Howard is seen sporting the "Clark Kent" persona.

When asked if he would ever considere a side career as an actor, Howard said, "I've always wanted to be an actor."

Longest holding breath underwater break world record

A Swiss diver has broken the world record for holding his breath underwater - for 19 minutes and 21 seconds.

Freediver Peter Colat, 38, said the first 12 minutes without air were 'no problem' after plunging into a water tank at a holiday fair in St Gallen, Switzerland.

Mr Colat smashed the previous record held by Italian Nicola Putignano by 19 seconds.

Under the rules for so-called 'static apnea' laid down by the Guinness World Records, Mr Colat was allowed to breath pure oxygen for ten minutes before the feat yesterday.

He said afterwards: 'The first 12 minutes were not a problem and I felt the first need to breathe very late, but because of this it was even stronger.'

Magician David Blaine set a world record in 2008 when he held his breath for 17 minutes and 4 seconds, breaking Mr Colat's previous record of 16 minutes and 32 seconds on Oprah Winfrey's talk show.

According to the British Freediving Association, participants must 'enter a very relaxed state so as to minimise oxygen consumption.'

World's Biggest Yo-Yo Collector set Guinness World Records

Orlando Doctor Has Collection of More than 10,000 and an Entry in the Guinness Book of World Records

There's something just a little different about Orlando's Dr. John Meisenheimer. The Orlando physician is recognized by both the American Academy of Dermatology and the Guinness Book of World Records, as CBS News correspondent Richard Schlesinger reports.

Meisenheimer knows his patients know about his obsession.

"It's pretty hard to walk in my waiting room and not," he said pointing out posters and displays of yo-yos. "I think everybody knows my love for yo-yos."

Meisenheimer has more of them than anyone else in the world. Part of his house has been turned into a museum-quality display of roughly 3,000 yo-yos. One dates back to 1790 in Britain. Another can be dipped in kerosene and lit on fire. Another has an internal compartment with teeth - it's meant for medical marijuana users to shred up their pot.

There are more in boxes in the attic. The total may be 10,000. He's lost count.

"It's such a piece of Americana," Meisenheimer said. "And it's the Nintendo of the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and even in the 60s. That was the toy."

Even today Meisenheimer toys with his acquisitions; he shows Schlesinger a trick.

In the process of collecting all these yo-yos Meisenheimer has made a serious study of them as well. He's now the chairman of the history and collecting committee of the American Yo-Yo Association. (Yes, there is one.) And he wrote the book on Yo-yos that's on display at the Smithsonian.

Dr. Meisenheimer has made his place in yo-yo history with not only the largest known yo-yo collection - but also the largest known yo-yo. It's about the height of a man and stands in his yard. He founded it on EBay; it had to be delivered by forklift.

Schlesinger gives Meisenheimer a one more for his collection: a yo-yo bearing the CBS logo.

So now the number of the Meisenheimer collection is about 10,001.

Largest Pumpkin in the world

Jackson township, Ohio, USA, Christy Harp, a local High School math teacher, has grown a 1,725 pounds pumpkin-which sets the new world record for the Largest pumpkin. Christy Harp and her husband, Nick, have been growing giant pumpkins for the past eight years.

For Christy, growing gargantuan gourds has become a personal challenge since the eighth grade, and is now a bit of a hobby at the family farm. This year, she and her husband decided to have a little contest. "Last year he beat me by 200 pounds. This year I beat him by 400 pounds. Very good year! My pumpkin, my side of the patch! We separate the patch and never step foot on the other side!" Christy says at one point in August, the pumpkin was growing 33 pounds a day.

Her secret to growing such a large pumpkin? "Pulling all the weeds and being out in the patch lots of hours," she said, noting that the boulder-sized pumpkin grew at about 33 pounds a day. "We filled up the soil with lots of compost, coffee grounds, cow manure, and then we pick out seeds with good genetics."

The previous world record for the Largest Pumpkin was a 1,689 pounds set in Rhode Island in 2007 by Joe Jutras. For her efforts, Christy Harp won the $2,500 cash prize for first place and bragging rights for the next year. Hers was the heaviest pumpkin weighed at the annual Ohio Valley Giant Pumpkin Growers weigh-off at Parks Garden Center on state Route 62 in Green Township. "We've always felt that the big pumpkin for any one of us is a victory for all of us,” said Tim Parks, owner of the garden center and a director of the OVGPG.

When it was all over, Harp and her husband, Nick, were hoisted onto the shoulders of some of the men she'd dethroned, and they all celebrated her victory. Ohio Valley Giant Pumpkin Growers director and secretary/treasurer Alan Gibson said some of the seeds from the winning pumpkins will be available for the club's seed auction, which is planned for 8 p.m. Nov. 28 and 29 on the club.

He explained that one seed can go for as high as $30. Proven seeds, such as seeds responsible for world record-holding pumpkins can go anywhere from $200 to $500 per seed on the Internet. If that records holds after the Circleville, Ohio Pumpkin Festival, her pumpkin will go on to New York City and be carved by a master carver on Times Square.

** Zhang Yinde, an employee of the Forestry Bureau of Suiling County, owns an ordinary hen which laid a 6.3 centimeters wide and 9.2 cm long egg, and weighed 201 grams, three times heavier than an ordinary egg-setting the world record for the Largest Chicken Egg.

** The Largest Chicken Egg it's been kept in the refrigerator of the owner.

Zhang told Xinhua that the Largest Chicken Egg looks like any other, except that its shell is a bit rough.

"The heroine hen is a super mother. She laid three other big eggs previously and once laid four eggs within one day," Zhang said.

Zhang got the hen as a "bonus" when he bought 10 other chickens from a breeder.

The other chickens have since ended up on Zhang's dinner table.

** The hen has an unusual source of food. "She loves to walk around my dog's kennel. I guess she's been stealing the dog's food," Zhang said.

** The previous world record for the Largest Chicken Egg was set by a Cuban hen named "Titi".
