Tyler Shields Plans to Stay Awake for 40 Days Straight set world record 2011

I always thought it would be pretty cool to set a world record. Unlike Tyler Shields, a 28-year-old photographer who’s determined to stay awake for 40 days straight, I lack the necessary self-discipline. Shields, who hails from LA, has long had problems with insomnia but recently decided to embrace his sleeplessness and set a world record for the longest stretch of time awake – 960 hours. He’s made it a long way already, as today he crossed the 38-day mark.

 Shields explains the motivation behind his stunt, “People live in a ‘why’ world. I live in a ‘why not’ world.” He adds, “If you’re the greatest bread maker, you should make bread. If you’re the guy who doesn’t sleep, you shouldn’t sleep.”

(I’m not really sure I follow the logic there – but alright.)

 Shields’ stunt has provoked a great deal of controversy due to its highly dangerous nature. The Guinness World Records organization, for example, has refused to take part in the ordeal, stating that the organization has long refused to recognize sleep-deprivation records. Shields has had to turn to his family and friends to help monitor his wakefulness.

 Even more unbelievable, however, is that Shields continued with his daily work obligations up until very recently. He explains that he has trained himself to function very well on little sleep due to his insomnia. In these last days, however, Sheilds’ body seems to be lashing out. He explains that simple daily activities such as taking a shower are unbearably painful. He has lost feeling in his legs and is having severe bladder-control issues.

Medical professionals have voiced concern as to the tremendous harm he is doing to his body and mind. Friends and family have expressed concern about possible long-term effects of the experiment.

Graham Barker - World's Largest Navel Lint Collection lands set Guinness World Record

World's Largest Navel Lint Collection lands Australian librarian Guinness World Record

An Australian librarian has claimed the Guinness World Record for his unprecedented collection of belly button "fluff."

That's right. Graham Barker, 45, has dedicated the past 26 years to staring into his own navel, carefully extracting 22.1 grams of multi-colored lint which he stores in clear jars.

"Some think I must have too much time on my hands, which always strikes me as an illogical thing to say about a habit which only occupies ten seconds per day," he told the Daily Mail.

Barker says he "harvests" his crop while waiting for the shower every morning.

Shockingly, he says his revolting hobby was inspired by boredom.

"I noticed the lint in my navel and became curious as to how much of it one person can produce," he said. "I decided the only way to find out was to collect it for a while and see."

Barker, who describes "The Incredible World of Navel Fluff" on his website, says his collection has landed him numerous world records and notoriety.

So far, he has sold three of his fluff jars to a museum, but won't reveal how much they went for.

Whatever he got, it was worth it.

"Collecting lint costs nothing and takes almost no time or effort so there is no compelling reason to stop," Barker told the Daily Mail, explaining his plans to continue picking fuzz out of his bellybutton as long as humanly possible.

"I wouldn't call it an addiction because it's not something I feel any need to do. If my belly stopped producing lint tomorrow I might feel surprised but not disappointed."

Barker says the pastime is not uncommon.

"When I ran a navel lint survey many years ago a handful of respondents, who were all men, confessed to having saved up some of their lint at some point. But none had continued with it," he said. "One guy might have persisted, but he got married and his wife ordered him to stop."

For those cringing at the thought of jars of belly button waste, Barker will have you know you're a small minority.

To mark the arrival of the 10 millionth Norwegian salmon to China, the Norwegian Seafood Export Council (NSEC) created a sushi mosaic featured 8,374 pieces of sushi made from different types of seafood, primarily salmon, but also cod, mackerel and shrimp - setting the new world record for the largest sushi mosaic at the Shanghai World Expo.

The record breaking sushi mosaic used 120kg of rice and 65kg of Norwegian salmon, and took six hours and 15 minutes to complete.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Wu Xiaohong, confirmed the new world record and presented a certificate to confirm the feat.

NESC’s mosaic bested India's Guinness World Record-certified champion from 2008, when 5,814 sushi pieces were used to spell the word Mumbai over 15.16 square meters.
