2Truths and One Lie: Guinness World Records!
We scour the interwebs, you pick the lie!
Can you guess which of these world records below is the lie?…
#1) World’s Longest Tongue
Is that a great Photoshop job, or did a cold chill just run down Gene Simmons back?
Meet Nick Stoeberl, a man with a tongue that runs almost 4 inches: specifically 3.97 inches from tip to closed lip. And according to Guinness, that’s a World Record.
Nick’s only 26 years old, and one wonders if this monster in his mouth will keep growing?
Either way, Nick’s not going to let his tongue go to his..err, head. He recently told HuffPost, “It’s a gift, I have to use it.” (We imagine his girlfriend smiled as he said that.)
#2) Most Naked Riders on a Theme Park Ride
According to Guinness, the most naked people on a theme park ride is 102, set by members of the public on Green Scream rollercoaster at Adventure Island, Southend on Sea, Essex, UK, on 8 August 2010.
But what we don’t know is just how many Clorox Wipes were needed to clean the ride after the record was set?
Apparently, 40 members of the public could go at one time, due to the number of seats available on the ride and the rollercoaster went 3 times to accommodate them all. So we’re also wondering if they set a record for most naked people standing in line for a roller coaster full of naked people? It’s a two-fer!
The good news is the particpants raised over £22,000 for the ‘Bosom pals’ appeal, which is for the breast cancer unit at Southend University Hospital.
Way to go you nude do-gooders you!
#3) Largest Fish Caught Bare-Handed
Who ever knew there was such a thing as bare-handed fishing?? Dan Wolf knows, that’s who.
“Badass Dan” as he is known by… 2Truths, wrangled this 16 foot great white shark off the coast of Northern California in November of 2014 to set the Guinness World Record for Largest Fish Caught Bare-Handed. The shark weighed in at a whopping 4,017 lbs.
So how does he do it? “Sharks and rays can be put into a a trance-like state called ‘tonic immobility’ by turning them upside down,” said Dan. “By exciting their ampullae of Lorenzini, you can manipulate a shark’s posture – then, quickly roll them onto their backs to induce the trance,” Dan explained.
Flipping sharks upside down and dragging them back to shore – that’s man fishing right there. You da man Dan!
