Welcome To The Twilight Zone...





Where the name of the game is how weird can things get?  Well, how about this?

1.   Svetlana Pankratova made the Guinness Book of World Records in 2009 for the longest legs in the world.  She stood 6 foot 4 inches tall and 4 foot 4 inches of her was LEGS!

2.  The smallest roadworthy car was created by Perry Watkins from the United Kingdom in 2009.  The car measured 41 inches high and 26 inches wide and 52 inches long.  It took seven months to build and I can only imagine it gets great gas mileage.

3.  The longest fingernails for a female belong to Lee Redmond of the United States.  She began growing them in 1979 and had a world record in 2008 when they measured twenty-eight feet four and one-half inches long.

4.  In case you're wondering, the longest fingernails on a male belonged to Melvin Boothe of the United States.  His fingernails measured just over thirty two feet long.  Makes you wonder what's our fascination with growing our nails over here?

5.  And while we in the states may have a fascination with our nails, the person with the most body piercings on a senior citizen belongs to John Lynch of the United Kingdom.  As of 2008, he had 241 piercings, including 151 on his head and neck.  

Ahhh, a face only a mother could love...

  2. I have to cut my nails when the white tips begin to show. I have had my ear lobes pierced 5 times. Those are my limits. World record holders are safe.
