World's Largest Spade - Bulldog Tools set world record 2010

Clarington Forge, Wigan, UK -- Bulldog Tools celebrated 230 years of British tool manufacturing by creating a spade which stands at 3.610m (11'8'') tall, the blade width is 59.8cm (23.5"), weighs over 180KG (28st 4.8lb) and required 160 hours to build- setting the new world record for the Largest Spade.

The new world record beats the previous Guinness world record for the Largest Spade by half a meter in height.

    The world's largest spade took over 160 man hours to make, the blade and socket are made of solid steel and the spade stands at 3.610m (11'8'') tall. The blade width is 59.8cm (23.5") - the spade weighs over 180KG (28st 4.8lb).

     Fred Foot from Bulldog Tools says: "This record marks 230 years of British manufacturing for Bulldog Tools. This is an achievement of which we are all very proud. We will be taking the world's largest spade on tour around the UK."

   "We began design work back in June of 2009 for the world's largest spade. We briefed our design company Destech, who are based in Nazeing, Essex to design an exact replica of one of our Bulldog spades, but make it three times bigger than the spade upon which it is based!"


The skill in the Destech design was to make sure that the proportions of the largest spade in the world were correct as the spade needed to look real; rather than a model, or cheap reproduction. In addition, the spade had to be made from the same materials as the original product to allow it to be a) an exact replica, b) be eligible for the World Record.

Largest Blood donation set Guinness World Record - Shiv Sena

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena’s quest for a Guinness record has landed its lower rung leaders in a bloody mess. They have to find blood, lots of it, to remain in the good books of the party leadership.

The Sena’s diktat is clear. It wants to collect 25,000 bottles of blood on the occasion of the golden jubilee of Maharashtra and walk into the Guinness Book of World Records.

The previous record was set by Dera Sacha Sauda of Sri Ganga Nagar in Punjab, which collected blood from 17,921 donors in 2004.

Under the party’s plan, each of its 227 unit chiefs needs to bring at least 200 donors from their respective areas to achieve the target. Blood would be collected at a camp in Goregaon on April 25. A brainchild of the party’s executive president Uddhav Thackeray, the camp is aimed at building connect with people in constructive ways.

The grand idea has left the unit chiefs at their wit’s end. They may lose their posts if they fail to muster people for the camp. “I can easily bring 200 people for a rally at Shivaji Park, but it is much more difficult to gather that many people to donate blood,” a unit chief said.

To make their task more difficult, they already collected blood in their areas on January 23, party chief Bal Thackeray’s 83rd birthday.

“Normally, a donor can donate blood once in three months. The unit chiefs will have to run from pillar to post to gather 200 new people,” he added.

The performance of unit chiefs has been under the party’s scanner after it launched a drive to reshuffle the organisation a few months ago. “I fear party seniors will use the camp as an opportunity to clip our wings,” another unit chief said. They have started poster campaigns in their areas to find donors.

World's tallest living horse set Guinness World Record - Big Jake

Friday will be a big day for Big Jake.

That's when he'll be officially presented, to thousands of horse lovers, as the Guinness World Record-holder for world's tallest living horse.

The 9-year-old Belgian gelding from Smokey Hollow Farm near Poynette stands 20 hands, 2.75 inches - that's one quarter inch short of 6-foot-11 - from the bottom of his unshod hooves to his withers. He's taller than the previous record-holder, a Clydesdale from Texas named Remington, who's 20 hands tall.

Jerry Gilbert, co-owner of Smokey Hollow Farm, said a certificate from Guinness World Records in England arrived at the farm, by express delivery, in late March.

But Jake's coronation as a world record holder will officially take place Friday, at the Midwest Horse Fair, scheduled for Friday through Sunday at the Alliant Energy Center, Madison.

The official announcement will be made just before the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rodeo, scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Jake also will appear - along with his sidekick from Smokey Hollow Farm, a miniature stallion named Nemo - at the Kids Korral throughout the show.

Gilbert said people are welcome to take Jake's picture, but probably won't be allowed to stand next to him for a height comparison, because Jake, like many horses, may not be accustomed to strangers.

Gilbert said people who view Jake at the Kids Korral will be invited to contribute to the Ronald McDonald House in Madison in Jake's honor. It provides a "home away from home" for families of children younger than 18 who are undergoing medical treatment in the Madison area.

According to Gilbert, the Midwest Horse Fair was chosen as the place where Jake would make his debut as a record-holder because the show long has been a favorite of the people at Smokey Hollow Farm.

The event, which attracted more than 52,000 people last year, features more than 500 exhibitors, numerous horses and educational seminars on topics ranging from "A Child's Perspective on Training and Riding Horses" to "Training and Properly Harnessing a Driving Horse."

Daily admission costs are $10 in advance or $12 at the gate; weekend passes are available for $27 in advance or $36 at the gate. Children 7 and younger are admitted to the show free, though children will need tickets for the nightly shows, including the rodeo.

Meanwhile, Gilbert is awaiting Big Jake's official appearance in the Guinness Book of World Records.

"He's not guaranteed to be in the book," he said. "The 2010 edition may have already gone to press, but maybe he'll be in the 2011 edition."

Another record in the works?

As far as Jerry Gilbert knows, Guinness World Records has never documented the world's tallest team of horses.

If they ever do, then Smokey Hollow Farm might garner its second world record - and Big Jake, already confirmed as the world's tallest horse, could pair up with another Belgian horse, Almighty Bruce, to claim the team record.

World’s fastest jet car - Bloodhound

Faster than the speeding bullet then you asked, is it a plane –no, is it superman –no, is it a car –yes –the Bloodhound SSC jet car fired with Eurofighter Typhoon engine that is set to be the world’s fastest car ever to top 1000mph(1,610km/h). The great news Bloodhound’s design has been finalized and currently being optimize to set it world land-speed record attempt in 2011. Hit on the continue link for details and the latest Bloodhounds video animation.

Former record holder Richard Noble and current holder Andy Green teamed up to set the record breaking attempt which will take place on Hakseen Pan, a 19km long, 5km wide desert in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Green holds the current record, hitting 763mph (1,228km/h) in the Thrust SSC in 1997.


The Bloodhound project is aimed to inspire kids to engage with science, technology and engineering. However, we believe the project is too expensive (£10M) donating it to people of Haiti or educating unfortunate children will help more rather than inspiring.
