Amelia Boomker, a 36-year-old Illinois mom, has donated more breast milk than any other woman in the world. The mom of four boys — Danny, Liam, Ryan and Connor — is now a Guinness World Record holder, having pumped 16,321 fluid ounces of milk since 2008.

Brooklyn does it best, and making my borough of residence proud (or, uh, something like that, I think) today is Scott Wiener, who was just crowned with the Guinness World Record for “Largest Collection of Pizza Boxes.” The competition must have been stiff for that title! Needless to say, Wiener is really, really passionate about pizza. I like to think that I am, too, but I have to hand it to him for taking his passion to what we like to call the Next Level. Wiener’s collection, which he began back in 2008, consists of some 595 different pizza boxes spanning 45 different countries. (He’s even written a book on the subject.) Keep reading »
I think we should all congratulate Alicia Richman of Granbury, Texas on her extraordinary mammary glands. The 28-year-old mother is the new Guinness World Record holder for the “Most Breast Milk Donated.” Since giving birth to her son Drake last March, she has donated about 86 gallons of excess breast milk to the Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, which helps premies and sick babies.
“I’m so thankful that I’m able to help not only my own baby, Drake, but all of the little babies who need it and are sick … It really feels amazing and I’m so thankful that I’m able to do it,” said Richman, who wants to raise awareness about milk bank donation.
That’s wonderful and I’m happy for the sick babies who are getting fed, but I’m still trying to process the thought of 87 gallons of milk coming out of this woman. That doesn’t include what she fed to her son. That is A LOT of milk. [Huffington Post]
You won’t see 11-year-old Supatra Sasuphan running to the razor section of her local drugstore or off to join the circus. Supatra, who suffers from Hypertrichosis, is hirsute and proud. She was just named the world’s hairiest girl in the Guinness Book of World Records. After a lifetime of being called “monkey-face” by her peers, she is “happy” to have taken the title. That’s right! Screw those kids! Her plans for the future? To become a doctor to help people. I want to give her a huge hug and make all of her dreams to come true. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
