The 5 Lamest Records Recognized By Guinness World Records

Have you heard about 16-year-old Laura Dekker who sailed around the world by herself? She is believed to be the youngest sailor to have traveled around the world solo. But, despite this accomplishment, she won't be given a Guinness World Record. Why? Because they've stopped recognizing records for young sailors so they don't encourage kids to attempt dangerous voyages. Ok, fair enough, but Guinness have you looked at some of your records recently? Some of your  ”records” shouldn't be considered records at all. Here's 5 Lame Records In The Guinness World Records.


Largest Collection Of ‘Do Not Disturb’ Hotel Signs



This record is clearly more worthy than traveling around the world solo at 16 in a sail boat. Jean-François Vernetti of Switzerland collected over 8,000 different ‘Do Not Disturb’ hotel signs from countries across the world.

Does anybody really know what time it is? This guy sure does. Jack Schoff, of the United States, collected over a thousand different clocks. This collection continues to grow.

Largest Snail



I honestly don't get how you wouldn't be grossed out or freaked out over this. The largest size of a snail measured 39.3 centmeters (15.5 inches) from snout to tail when fully extended. This isn't Gary from Spongebob.

Longest Distance Pulled By A Horse/Full-Body Burn



Someone woke up one morning and decided to be pulled by a horse, then measure how big of a body burn they got. It's a real record. The record is held by Halapi Roland in Kisoroszi, Hungary. The full-body burn was over a distance of 472.8 meter (1,551 feet, 2 inches).

Most Eggs Crushed With Head In One Minute



Ashrita Furman crushed 80 eggs with his head in one minute. I could drop 80 eggs in a minute, does that count any?
