Humans are a unique bunch. We walked on the Moon, invented the Internet, and even mapped the human genome. We’ve accomplished some truly remarkable things in our relatively short time on this planet as Homo sapiens. But flip the coin, and you’ll find we also have our fair share of weirdest world records.

From the time humans first started walking upright, we’ve been doing our best to come up with new ways to test the limits of our bodies and minds. It’s not always pretty, but it sure is entertaining and made us evolve in ways other species can only dream of.

Guinness World Records has been around since 1955, and they’ve made it their mission to keep track of the most impressive, extreme, and craziest world records humanity has achieved. They’ve got weird world records for everything, from the longest fingernails to the most tattooed person — and you’ll get plenty of them on our list of the dumbest world records!

Collecting this data requires sharp attention to detail, thorough research, and stringent standards. But sometimes, world record breakers don’t get enough recognition — and we think it’s a good time to bring them back from oblivion. You’ll find that some of the weirdest Guinness World Records are arguably great feats, while others are borderline absurd. May they give you the bravery to break a world record yourself!

What are the Top 10 World Records?

While sorting through this bunch of the weirdest world records to this day, you might get to thinking about whether there are any records that are a bit more “normal.” And while normalcy is kind of a subjective topic, popularity isn’t! 

Here are the top 10 most popular or most read-about records as per the official Guinness World Records page

  • Most career goals - football;
  • Shortest woman - living;
  • Widest mouth - unstretched;
  • Highest vehicle mileage;
  • Largest living cat;
  • Tallest man ever;
  • Longest nose on a living person;
  • Longest time breath held voluntarily (male);
  • Longest snake in captivity ever;
  • Most alternative control methods used to complete Dark Souls.

As you can see, some of these records can definitely be called “normal,” like career goals or highest vehicle mileage. However, us being a curious kind, we cannot help but yearn to know about the weirdest world records too, like the largest nose on a living person!

Strangest diet.

During his lifetime, Michel Lotito (France), known as Monsieur Mangetout, ate metal and glass throughout his lifetime, beginning in 1959. Gastroenterologists X-rayed his stomach and described his ability to consume 900 g (2 lb) of metal per day as unique.
His diet since 1966 included 18 bicycles, 15 supermarket trolleys, seven TV sets, six chandeliers, two beds, a pair of skis, a low-calorie Cessna light aircraft and a computer. He is said to have provided the only example in history of a coffin (handles and all) ending up inside a man.
Mr Lotito died of natural causes on June 25, 2007.

How did they decide the Cessna light aircraft was low-calorie? Did it have less butter smeared on the wings than other aircraft? Was the fuselage filled with artificial sweetener instead of sugar?

What is the Most Absurd World Record? 

No matter what you call these crazy world records — random, absurd, or weird —they still are records and did require quite a bit of practice or impressive genetic traits to achieve. That said, we can still take a look at the Guinness World Record Book and take a vote on the most absurd or useless world records. From egg-smashing fun to sticking sticky notes on their nose, these five records might just take the cake in the show of absurdity: 

  • Most snails on a face were achieved by Fin Keller, age 11, of Sandy, Utah, who managed to fit 43 live snails on his face. This broke the previous record for this achievement;
  • Most eggs crushed with the head conquered by Ashrita Furman with 80 eggs in one minute;
  • Most people brushing their teeth simultaneously by 10,800 students in Manilla, Philippines. They brushed their teeth for 3 minutes straight;
  • The largest collection of sick bags was carefully collected by Niek Vermeulen. The bags are from 1142 airlines and 160 countries, and there are 6016 of them! 
  • Cycling backward with a violin by Christian Adam. He managed to cycle 37 miles (60km) in five hours and nine minutes this way. 

Reading about these weird Guinness world records might also spark curiosity in you about the possibility of breaking a record yourself. And we get it; we’d also like to be crowned the person with the longest nose hair or the fastest typing panda ever! So, if you’re really serious about breaking one of these crazy world records, keep on reading, and we’ll tell you about the easiest records to break in the next chapter.

Which World Records are the Easiest to Break? 

Still set firm on breaking one of these dumb world records? Good for you! And since it’s no longer just about being the tallest person or the shortest, here are a few world records you could easily attempt to break: 

ADVERTISEMENT
  • The most number of underpants put on in a minute and done in pairs of two. The number for this is just 17! 
  • The largest bubblegum bubble. Mere 20 inches (50cm) to rival! 
  • Most Smarties/M&Ms eaten in one minute while blindfolded. Lousy 22 to beat!
  • Most socks put on in 30 seconds. You won’t believe this, but the number is just 28; 
  • Fastest time to assemble Mr. Potato Head. With the existing record of 5.43 seconds, this one might be a bit tricky, but definitely worth a shot. 

Before you set out to beat these records, don’t forget to make it official by registering on the World Guinness Records page and applying for an attempt to break the record of your choice. Practice a bit, try it out, and see yourself becoming the next world record carrier. And why not?

But, before you set out on your quest, continue reading about these weird world records; if nothing else, they’ll entertain you for a good while!
