  • Don't Quit your Day Job

    You may find it hard to believe but a 60-year-old man has set the world record for... holding the most world records! During his lifetime Ashrita Furman has held a staggering 563 world records and he says he'll never stop trying to add to his collection. Furman currently holds 198 official Guinness World Records, including "most pies in the face in one minute (56)" and "opening drinks cans in 30 seconds (41)." His incredible achievements have allowed him to travel the world, setting records at theEiffelTower, Stonehenge andGreat Wall of China. His first official record came in 1979 when he did 27,000 star jumps inNew York. In the following two years he somersaulted backwards for ten miles and followed it up with 50 hours of continuous hand clapping. And he admits, "On occasion I have gone too far and the stupidest record I attempted was when I tried to beat the time for eating a whole tree." You know what I find hard to believe? That this guy is still alive!? Read More
