DENVER - A woman in Littleton is hoping to get into the Guinness World Records for having the longest legs in America.

At 6-foot, 4-inches tall, Laura Franks stands out in a crowd. She says she gets stared at all the time and asked whether she plays basketball.

Franks says her legs measure 45 inches from the bottom of her foot to the top of her hip. Her inseam is 39 inches. She has to have pants custom made either locally or online.

She decided to contact the Guinness Book of World Records Sunday night.

"I was watching a TV show about the world's tallest people and watching it, I didn't feel weird at all. I felt like, 'Well, that's me. That's normal,'" Franks said. "There was a girl on there with a 37-inch inseam and I said, 'Well, I have a 39. I've got longer legs than she does.' So, I just thought I'd see if I was taller than the tallest."

Even though she does have long legs, Franks' feet are pretty average. She's a size 10.

Franks says she has been 6'4 since she was 12 years old. She says used to hate always being so much taller than all the girls and boys in class, but has since learned to accept and be proud of her height.

Franks says the biggest problems with being so tall is shopping for clothes, and finding guys taller than her to date.

As for all those people who wonder if she's played basketball, she did play in high school but because of injuries did not play in college.

Franks says being tall runs in her family. Her father is 6-foot, 6-inches, her brother is 6-foot, 9-inches and her mother is the smallest one at 5-foot, 10-inches.

Franks expects to hear back from Guinness World Records in four to six weeks.

Youngest twins break records to start secondary school aged Nine

Paula and Peter Imafidon broke world records when they passed A-Level maths at the age of seven.

And today, the nine-year-old twins will add to their list of achievements when they become the youngest ever pupils in Britain to start secondary school.

Having won places at 12 top secondary schools, they will join other nervous pupils and parents across the country waiting to find out whether they have offers for their chosen schools.

Councils will send out 540,000 letters to parents today - known as 'national offer day' - with details of which schools have accepted their children.

Last year, almost one in six 10 and 11-year-olds missed out on their top choice. Of the 546,744 pupils aged 11 allocated places at secondary schools, nearly 92,000 failed to get their preferred option.

This year, that figure is likely to have climbed to almost 100,000 pupils.

Peter and Paula, from Waltham Forest, London, dubbed the 'wonder twins', hit the headlines when they set three world records by passing A and AS-level maths papers aged seven.

They became the youngest candidates ever to pass an A-level maths paper, the youngest school pupils to pass the A-level maths paper and the youngest ever twins to achieve this level in maths anywhere in the world.

A year later they took and passed the University of Cambridge's Advanced Mathematics (FAM) paper, becoming the youngest students ever to pass the rigorous exams.

Their father Chris Imafidon said: 'We're delighted with the progress they have made.'

Last week, research by the Daily Mail revealed that one in every six pupils will miss out on a place at their chosen state secondary school.

Almost 100,000 pupils are likely to be disappointed when the allocated places are announced today.

Longest banner wrap set Guinness World Record

Red tent campaigners seek Guinness World Record, Housing activists wrapped red banners around the Canada Pavilion in Vancouver Saturday to raise awareness of national housing issues, Red tent picture, Red tent photo, Red tent image, Red tent video.

Housing activists experimented with a novel protest strategy Saturday: they attempted to set a Guinness World Record while raising awareness of national housing issues.

Supporters of the Red Tent Campaign gathered in downtown Vancouver to wrap 1,700 metres of red banners around the block surrounding the Canada Pavilion on West Georgia and Beatty.

John Richardson, the Executive Director of the Pivot Legal Society, told ctvbc.ca that the group hoped to set a Guinness World Record for the longest banner wrap.

While a record for the longest banner wrap does not exist, Guinness World Records has agreed to review documentation about the event for a possible world record, Richardson said.

The banners featured slogans calling on Stephen Harper, the government and the Canadian public to support the Red Tent Campaign, a national movement initiated by Pivot which seeks to end homelessness.

The protesters hope to increase support for Bill C-304, which will be reviewed by Parliament in the spring. The bill would establish a constitutional right to housing in Canada, while providing the foundation for a national housing strategy with funding commitments and timelines.

"[The Bill] would be the beginning of the end of homelessness," said Richardson, who explained that actions taken during the Olympics simply constitute the beginning of the actions that the Red Tent Campaign has planned.

Local activists are not the only ones who are critical of the government's policies.

The banners featured a quote from Miloon Kothari, a Special Rapporteur to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, who said that Canada should "commit to a comprehensive national housing strategy with stable and long-term funding."

Police officers with bikes and public observers from the B.C. Civil Liberties Association stood on the street corners and walked around the block monitoring the quiet protest. Approximately 100 protesters were involved, according to Vancouver Police Const. Keras Iotis.

Kate Cercomb, a 50-year-old Vancouverite concerned about housing issues, stood by holding up a Canadian flag as she showed her support for the protesters.

Am Johal, a Media Coordinator for the Red Tent Campaign, hopes that peaceful events like this one will help increase public support. He believes the campaign "taps into Canadians' general sense of patriotism and support for a longstanding social issue."
