The idea for the Guinness Book of World Records came out of an argument Sir Hugh Beaver, managing director of the Guinness Brewery, had on a hunting trip in the early 1950s. He wasn’t able to find the answer to the fastest game bird in any reference book.
Later, that inspired his plan for Guinness to do a promotion around a book that would settle pub arguments. That first book, written by Norris and Ross McWhirter, was published August 27, 1955.
Well Today let’s have a look into the Top 3 Weird Guinness World Records of All Time.
1) Most Big Macs Consumed in a Lifetime
U.S. resident Donald A. Gorske consumed his 26,000th McDonald’s Big Mac on October 11, 2012 — after 40 years of eating Big Macs on a daily basis.
2) Most Piercings in a Lifetime
After her first skin piercing in January 1997, Elaine Davidson was hooked. The Brazilian former restaurant owner has been pierced a total of 4,225 times as of June 8, 2006. The GWR site says she is constantly adding and replacing jewelry, primarily on her face, but also likes adding tattoos, makeup, and feathers in her hair.
3) Longest Distance Keeping a Table Lifted With Teeth
Talk about strong choppers! Georges Christen from Luxembourg ran 38 feet and 8 inches while carrying a 26 pound table — and a 110 pound woman sitting on it! — in his mouth in Madrid, Spain, on February 9, 2008.
