Did you know that there was a such thing as a "Guiness World Records DAY"?

Each year on November 12th, the Guiness World Record people celebrate the anniversary of when they sold their HUNDRED MILLIONTH copy of their book -- which occured fives years ago (2004). Craziness!

Some of my favorite records include:
  • Most Ferrero Rocher chocolates eaten in one minute: SEVEN, by Jim Lyngvild (Denmark) live on TV2 Denmark's Go? Aften Danmark in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 10 October 2008.

  • Fastest time to carve a face into a pumpkin: 24.03 seconds, by Stephen Clarke (USA), who broke his previous record on July 23, 2006 at Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida.

  • Longest time to hold your breath underwater: 18 min 32.59 sec , by Karoline Mariechen Meyer (Brazil) in a swimming pool in Florianopolis, Brazil, on July 10, 2009.
