Chris “The Dutchess” Walton Makes Guinness Book Of World Records With Longest Fingernails

It takes a newborn baby 18 years to grow into adulthood. And it took Chris “The Dutchess” Walton just as long to grow her record-setting fingernails to 19 feet, 9 inches long.

“The hardest thing for me to do is dig in my pockets,” the 45-year-old rock singer from Las Vegas says. “Everything else I can do myself — driving, shopping, cleaning the house … although when I vacuum, the cord gets tangled in my fingers.”

A day before the release of the 2012 Guinness World Records, The Dutchess visited The Huffington Post to talk about her life and celebrate her inclusion in this year’s edition — a celebration of “unique beauty,” including fresh pictures of the world’s longest tongue, the largest afro, and a “holy man” with 453 piercings.

“I never set out to make it into Guinness,” she says. “It just happened.” Read more… Keep reading »

Movie Shot On iPhone, Snuck Out Of Iran In A Cake, Will Screen In The US

I am kind of fascinated by the movie “This Is Not A Film,” which screened at the Toronto Film Festival and has now been picked up for release in the US. The film is by Iranian director Jafar Panahi, who has been sentenced to six years in jail for allegedly making “propaganda against the Islamic Republic” and banned from filmmaking for 20 years. And so he made “This Is Not A Film” while under house arrest. It’s a 75-minute look at a day in his life as he tried to appeal his verdict. It was shot on an iPhone by a friend and, for its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the movie had to be smuggled out of the country in a cake. Panahi has serious commitment to his craft and I think it’s pretty amazing that audiences will get to see this work. I only hope it doesn’t incur him graver punishment.

The 7 Types Of Friend Everyone Needs

Just like a superhero team or jewel thief gang needs each member to specialize in a different skill set, a good circle of friends also needs a wide range of useful skills. While a superhero team might need a guy who is superstrong and a guy who has a lot of gadgets, your friend team might consist of a guy who can get you discounts at the Best Buy and a guy who’s totally cool with feeding your cats when you’re out.

When I suggest assembling such a team, I’m not suggesting you go around preying on emotionally vulnerable people who can do useful things for you and pretend to be their friend. I’m just saying that if you happen to run into some cool people you enjoy hanging out with, who also own a pickup truck, don’t take them for granted.

Sure, you can have friends that are just fun people, or that you are fond of for no logical reason, but that doesn’t mean you don’t also want to have friends such as … Read more… Keep reading »
