World’s largest human smiley face set World Record - Baltimore’s tourism agency


World’s largest human smiley face set Guinness World Record by Baltimore’s tourism agency

Baltimore’s tourism agency, Visit Baltimore plans to release a $500,000 marketing campaign on Thursday, with the catchphrase “Find Your Happy Place in Baltimore.” The campaign’s goal is to attract residents of nearby states.

The agency will attempt to set a Guinness World Record by having 250 people come together to create the world’s largest human smiley face! This will be part of the campaign’s debut. If the group is able to set the record they plan to release 19 dozen butterflies into the air.

Sam Rogers, Chief Marketing Officer, says that people are in search for happiness and simple pleasures in the current climate. “Has the economy got you in a slump?” reads one of the web spots.

Last year, Baltimore was one of just five states that saw an increase in tourism. A report released Tuesday by the Maryland Office of Tourism shows the state had 29 million visitors in 2009, a 3.5 percent increase from 2008.

Leisure trips were up by 5.2 percent, while business trips displayed a decrease of 1.5 percent in 2009. With its new campaign, Baltimore is likely to see another in tourism for 2010.

World's Most Luxurious Armoured Car - Knight XV bulletproof Car 2010

It can withstand a barrage of bullets, features its own entertainment system and bar and is so big it dwarfs a Hummer.

The Knight XV - dubbed the world's most luxurious armoured vehicle - is the new mode of transport for people wanting to combine security and comfort.

At 20ft in length, the imposing car stands at more than three feet longer than a Hummer and is a whole foot wider.

The company behind the cars is experiencing a surge in sales, despite the price tag of £323,000 - which can rise to £660,000 after upgrades.

William Maizlin, president of Canadian makers Conquest Vehicles, said: 'We believe we have created an entirely new niche in the bespoke luxury armored vehicle marketplace with the Knight XV.'

'What's amazing is that despite the economy, we are seeing a surge in sales.

'This is due to the unique offering of our product coupled with the fact that there are no other vehicles on the market today that offer the security, luxury and performance in a bespoke vehicle like that of the Knight XV.

'Our goal is to offer as many new, cutting-edge and top-of-the-line luxury and security options as possible.'

Inside, the car is kitted out with a 26-inch, custom built LCD TV screen, an X-Box 360 or Playstation games console and even its own bar.

It also has a special system that allows passengers to speak to people outside the car without opening a window or door.

For security, the vehicle's exterior is plated with ballistic-tested steel and aluminium body armour which can withstand a barrage of bullets.

And glass between the driver and the passengers seats will 'defeat' a high-powered Magnum 44 pistol.

Conquest Vehicles has produced a ballistics testing video showcasing how the KNIGHT XV’s body armor and glass is laboratory tested by H.P. White Laboratory Inc., an independent ballistic testing laboratory.

World's Smallest Wingwalker set World Record - Indian Stunt Man Kiran Shah

World's Smallest Wing walker set Guinness World Record 2010 - Indian Stunt Man Kiran Shah

Actor and stuntman Kiran Shah has appeared in Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones — and now he's become the world's Smallest wingwalker.

The 4ft 1in star braved speeds of 120mph at 1000ft to complete his record breaking feat.

And the 53-year-old performer, who doubled for Frodo in Lord of the Rings, said this was his most exciting adventure yet.

Strapped to the wing of a 1940s Boeing Spearman biplane, tiny Kiran completed a ten-minute wing-walk.

He said: "It was great, I loved it - but next time I'll pick a warmer day.


"It was very cold up there. The wind was coming at me all the time and I could hardly lift my arms because of the g-force."

Kiran added: "I was nervous until I had the safety briefing.

"Once I know what I'm doing it's ok - it's the same with any stunt.

"I'm not bothered by heights because I've done high falls before. Flying is no problem for me either.

"I love any kind of action. The more dangerous the better."


Experienced pilot Martyn Carrington flew the plane for Kiran's record attempt at Aerosuperbatics in Cirencester, Gloucs.

He said: "Flying with someone Kiran's size is a pilot's dream - you hardly know he's there.


"With someone bigger, the resistance and drag increases and it can be a bit trickier.

"He did really well up there. Conditions were good but there was a bit of wind and it was bumpy and cold.

"Kiran enjoyed himself though. I kept looking up to make sure he was still with us and he was lifting his arms and waving.

"He's certainly broken my personal record for the smallest passenger - next time we'll do a loop-the-loop with him."

Kiran was born in 1956 in Nairobi, Kenya, and moved to India when he was 12.

He began studying film in India but interrupted his studies when his father's health caused the family to move to England, where Kiran's brother had already settled.

His breakthrough into the film world came in 1976, when he was asked to do stunts in the film Candleshoe.

Kiran's career took off from there and he appeared in more films, TV commercials and videos.

He appeared alongside Tom Cruise in Legend, was Frodo's stunt double in Lord of The Rings, and worked on worldwide smash The Chronicles of Narnia.

Kiran has held the Guinness World Record for the 'shortest professional stuntman currently working in film' since October 2003.

Mary Oladapo of Guinness World Records said: "Kiran once again proves that size isn't everything even the smallest of people can achieve the greatest of things.

"To be recognised by Guinness World Records as the Shortest Stuntman and now the Shortest Wingwalker is testament that Kiran's one of the world's greatest stunt performers, regardless of size!"

Fastest Vertical Run set Guinness World Records by Tony Berglund - Swedish


Fastest Vertical Run set Guinness World Records by Tony Berglund - Swedish

Swedish Adventurer Tony Berglund Sets a new World Record for the Fastest Vertical Run, as he ran the 100 Meters Down the Front of a Skyscraper in Vasteras in 34.76 Seconds

The record involved running 100 meters down the front of a skyscraper in central Vasteras, face down using a rope.

Tony Berglund beat the former world record in Vertical Run, of 36.25 seconds set by Britain's Steve Jones. The record was supervised by Guinness World Records' own adjudicator from London on site in Vasteras.
"This is a once in a lifetime achievement. Especially because we had to postpone the attempt one day due to heavy winds. I was confident I could beat the record and everything worked out just as planned. I defeated the forces of nature and my own fears", Berglund said.

In order to make the attempt possible the skyscraper had to be extended which made it the third highest skyscraper in Sweden for one day. A 20 meter high framed structure was temporarily built on top of the skyscraper and made it over 100 meters tall.
Berglund also had to use a specially constructed carbon dioxide cooled rappelling device to prevent the rope from melting by the heat created by the high speed.

Howley man aims for place in Guinness World Records on his spacehopper - V Festival

 Howley man aims for place in Guinness World Records on his spacehopper - V Festival

 A Freelance graphic designer is hoping to boing and bounce his way into the record books.

Dale Brooks, of Howley, is trying to break the Guinness world record for the most number of people bouncing on space hoppers at V Festival 2010

The promoters behind the annual festival, which takes place in August in Stafford and Chelmsford, got in touch with Dale after more than 600 people joined a Facebook group dedicated to the attempt.

SJM Concerts were so impressed they have promised a dedicated area on both sites for breaking the bouncing record on what is being dubbed Space Hopper Friday.

The 26-year-old said: “I was given a space hopper as a house warming gift and thought it would be great if everyone took them to V Festival which me and my friends already had tickets for.

“I did a bit of research and got in touch with Guiness and thought the V Festival crowds in the north and south sites could easily break it.”

According to Wikipedia, the current record is 2,518 people hopping simultaneously on space hoppers in Holland. With 80,000 people attending V Festival every year, Dale is keen to completely smash the record.

He said: “I think when I first suggested it and created the group my friends didn’t think I would get enough people to do it and they’ve been shocked as the numbers have grown.

“It’s taken over my life as I’m checking the group every two minutes but I’ve never broken a record before and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

“I’ve just been waiting for the right thing to come up.”

The graphic designer has opened a shop with record-attempt themed keyrings, t-shirts and stickers which he hopes will be used to customise hoppers and tents.
