Pauline Potter took the title of the Guinness Book World Record’s Fattest Woman at 728 pounds. She packed on the pounds after divorcing her husband Alex, binging on about 10,000 calories a day. I’ll provide some calorie math for you. Ten thousand calories a day works out to be four bowls of cereal, a box of cookies and cheese curls for breakfast, a super-sized fast food meal and an order of chicken nuggets for lunch, three servings of pasta for dinner and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s for dessert. This diet led Pauline to health complications and immobility. Her son had to help her use the bathroom. Keep reading »

This Man Holds 121 Guinness World Records

I am obsessed with Guinness World Records. Someday, I aspire to set a record of my own. For those of you out there who are equally as compelled by them, I’d like to introduce you to a very important world record holder, Mr. Ashrita Furman. He holds the world record for … holding the most Guinness World Records. When his latest world record was documented last week—the record for the “most lemons caught blindfolded in one minute by a team of two”—it brought his record tally to an astonishing 121. But that’s nothing—in his 56 years, Ashrita has set 342 records, from doing the most jumping jacks in a row to juggling underwater while surrounded by sharks. And apparently this health food store manager in Queens has set records all over the world—on seven different continents to be exact. My. Hero. [Newser] Keep reading »

2 Dudes Break The World Record For Kissing

I’d like to extend a shout-out to Matt Daley and Bobby Canciello, two college dudes who set out to raise awareness for LGBTQ equal rights by breaking the Guinness World Record for the “longest continuous kiss.” After a 33-hour kissing sesh, they walked away with some tired lips and a world record. They both have boyfriends who are randomly not each other, but they called their long lip-lock “nothing more than a kiss between two men” and an “attempt to change social norms.” Extremely impressive, boys. Now go put on some chapstick. [She Wired] Keep reading »

“Hellcats” To Set A Guinness World Record

For the past, oh, 20 years, I have wanted few things more than to set a Guinness World Record. Last year, I determined that the most likely way to do this is by gathering a mass group of people to do an activity together, à la getting the most people dressed as Smurfs to one place. It looks like The CW’s new show “Hellcats” has read my mind. (Which is doubly meta since the show about the rough-and-tumble world of college cheerleaders is based on my book, Cheer!.) To promote the show, which stars Aly Michalka and Asley Tisdale, The CW is holding a world record attempt. TOMORROW. Keep reading »
